Virginia Woman Is Sued For $750,000 After Writing Scathing Yelp Review

ad0gg Re:SLAPP (424 comments)

Most states have anti-slapp laws on the books. California one is pretty nice, you can file a motion to dismiss, you don't even have to go through "discovery" and produce documents etc. You can also counter sue for legal fees. Sadly virginia doesn't have this type legislation but I think she can still file a motion to dismiss and hopefully get an understanding a judge.

Hurricane Could Make a Mess of Republican Convention

ad0gg Re:"Gat Back"? When did you start? (503 comments)

GOP is the christian conservative party. Bush said that he was on a mission from god. When it comes to religion, there is no debate or compromise. Only way politics works is with compromise, so what do we get, a non working government.

New eBay EULA Prohibits Class Action Lawsuits

ad0gg Re:so? (234 comments)

I wonder if you wrote a browser extension that redlined the whole EULA, took a screen shot when you clicked agree, if that would hold up in court. It works for regular contracts.

Ask Slashdot: Preempting Sexual Harassment In the Workplace?

ad0gg Re:Good grief... (1127 comments)

Phrasing the message is the key to success. You need to make it sound like you're being serious and sexual harassment is no joke.. Try saying this in your team meeting. "I will fuck you all in the ass unless the sexual harassment stops"

Why Mark Zuckerberg Is a Bad Role Model For Aspiring Tech Execs

ad0gg Re:many decades? (326 comments)

What do you have against retards? Looking at Banking which is such a simple concept, lend money to people who have ability to pay off the loan with money from your depositors. They couldn't even do that right. They even get 20%+ interest rates on credit cards while paying less than 1% on deposits yet they still managed to drive those companies into the ground.

From MIT Inventor To Tea Party Leader

ad0gg Re:WTF (815 comments)

Have you read their "contract on america"? They talk about reject emission trading, balanced budget, reducing taxes. These have nothing to do with constitution. They even talk about cutting Obama's healthcare based on constitution, but ask them if they want to cut social security/medicaid. Teaparty doesn't care about the constitution, they are too busy trying ban gay marriage,abortion and demanding to see Obama's birthcertificate. They also whine about the USPS and how it should be privatized, I wonder if they even read the constitution where explicitly defines as a task of the federal government.

Travelling Salesman, Thriller Set In a World Where P=NP

ad0gg Re:How come everyone in the movie is white? (165 comments)

I disagree with this statement. Intelligence is mostly controlled by your genes, it isn't even disputed in the science community. Has nothing to do with how you were raised. There's a bunch of studies on adopted kids and twins that were raised apart. No one ever likes to talk it about because for certain reasons i won't bring up because this type science has been used to commit some of worst crimes against humanity in modern history. Also IQ doesn't mean successful, being successful has to do with your upbringing and education. Smartest guy in the US is a bouncer after dropping out of college. He grew up in poverty and a broken home.

The 2006 edition of Assessing adolescent and adult intelligence by Alan S. Kaufman and Elizabeth O. Lichtenberger reports correlations of 0.86 for identical twins raised together compared to 0.76 for those raised apart and 0.47 for siblings.[42]

CDC Reports 1 In 88 Children Now Affected With Autism In the US

ad0gg Re:Autism is bullshit (398 comments)

If we look at cancer rates across the board. They are down over the last 100 years. What I have noticed is that spanking your kids is at a historic low. Which could be a cause of autism. And there's always the pirate theory, with increase in pirates over the last 10 years, that could be contributing factor to autism in our kids.

Apple Plans New Spaceship-like Campus

Google gave Mountain View free Wifi, I think its a reasonable ask. Google also provides grants to Mountain View public schools. Does Apple give anything back besides taxes?
