Zynder Thanks grandpa! (171 comments)

Like you said, it's 20 fucking 14. Why do you want your kids to play like it's 1814? You condemn a reboot and then suggest one. Good job!

Apple Reveals the Most Common Reasons That It Rejects Apps

Zynder Re:The guidelines used to be paywalled (132 comments)

I read your pineight link. Curiously, what is the point of the bottom section discussing whether ithingys are Turing complete or not? It seems like that page is part of an argument from some other subject on a page that we did not get to read.

Apple Reveals the Most Common Reasons That It Rejects Apps

Zynder Re:Manipulated by apple (132 comments)

Well that sounds truthy, but I don't buy it especially since you're obviously a Mac nut (your email is mac.com). I'm hitting 40 and my big fingers and crappy eyes have a tough time navigating my 4.3" screen so the almost 6" my Note 3 has, is an outstanding upgrade. Could the possibility be that people want more phone choices than one? Nah, must be because droids are that shitty.

Low-Carb Diet Trumps Low-Fat Diet In Major New Study

Zynder Re:Too simple (588 comments)

That's the best response to his post you got? Pathetic. You lose.

The lack of unnecessary ingredients is part of the draw to most Organic brands

You're the one who brought up unnecessary ingredients, he even quoted it, which is a broad undefined term btw. What is unnecessary? His response tried to clarify that for you and the other readers and to respond to your fallacy, the No True Scotsman:

Only the fake-ass organics like "O" (Safeway's brand) are full of bullshit like that.

Evidently they meet some kind of criteria to be labeled Organic. I'm sure the requirements are nebulous on purpose so more mfrs can qualify but that doesn't matter. If a fitness n00b wants to start eating healthy and they walk up and see the O brand labeled as organic, then they'll buy it expecting it to be healthy. Errol's argument is spot on and you've got nothing, man.

The Economy Flourishes Under Democratic Presidents

Zynder Zynder writes  |  about a month and a half ago

Zynder (2773551) writes "2016 is shaping up to be another presidential election about the economy. Democrats are previewing their populist message heading into this fall’s midterms, while Republicans are increasingly talking about economic immobility, campaigning against an Obama economy that they say hasn’t worked for them or their constituents.

Republicans, like any politicians whose party is out of power, argue that the economy will improve under their watch. But if voters looked at history, that’d be a hard story to sell, according to a new study from the strictly non-partisan National Bureau for Economic Research.

For the past 64 years, since Harry Truman was first elected to the White House, Democrat presidents have presided over stronger economies than their GOP counterparts — by almost any measure of economic health."
