US Military Moving Closer To Automated Killing
I need to remove my "Gone January 20th, 2013" with the Obama logo for the "o" bumper sticker from my bumper... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B00228KSPU/ref=dp_image_z_0?ie=UTF8&n=15684181&s=automotive
Disorderly Conduct Charge for Offensive Classmate Ratings
Back in my day, we didn't ARREST punks for printin' nasty things about the womenfolk. We chased them down, surrounded them, knocked them over, and kicked them until their ears bled. And we liked it! We LOVED it!
Asus Motherboard Box Doubles As PC Case
There really should be a "took the exact words out of my mouth" mod. Twice as much cardboard, probably plastic coated or something to make it more durable (and less recyclable) and it will all go into the dumpster as soon as the novelty wears off. This is not an attempt at being "green." This is a stunt that has the opposite of its perceived effect.
Drug Catapult Found At US-Mexico Border
"people being launched using this.. Just wait."
I was thinking the same thing..but that they could kill two birds with one stone so to speak.
Get an illegal to hold the drugs and shoot them BOTH over the fence at the same time!!!
Now...if we just had our sharpshooters ready it would be like shooting MX skeet.
"PULL".....bang....[sombrero goes spinning up in the air]
Ah, Cayenne8. I have missed you, sir! (I've been gone -- don't know about you). PULL!
Subversive Groups Must Now Register In South Carolina
No one thought to do this pre 9/11.

DRM Flub Prevented 3D Showings of Avatar In Germany
Except not a single person leaving that theater knew that DRM had anything to do with it. Or even the meaning of the acronym itself.
"Sorry, folks, little glitch with the 3D thingamajig here! Heh heh... Well, you're all welcome to stay and enjoy the show in all it's 2D glory, including some free popcorn! Or we'll gladly refund your money."
And they all came back the next day, and paid their money to support the now properly-running DRMed-up-the-ass movie, none the wiser. Do you really think the theater hauled out Cory Doctorow to hold forth on the evils of DRM for the audience's benefit?
$300 Sci-Fi YouTube Video Lands $30m Movie Deal
I'm going to go watch the longer version of it called "The War of the Worlds" (2005) again tonight. No, seriously, the Youtube vid was VERY cool. But I think what I liked most about it was that it reminded me of the Dakota Fanning movie. Oh, I guess Tom Cruise might have been in it too... Anyway, it was a very cool, very scary movie.
The best pizza I have ever had, I found ...
Leave it to Ann Arbor to have an organic pizza joint!
Facebook Founder's Pictures Go Public
Sorry, but no. We see all 202 of your friends.
It seems that you, Lisa, are a bit of a paradox. I see by your facebook profile that you're a fan of Malwarebytes, suggesting you must be pretty proficient with a computer. At the same time, you seem to be unaware that FB provides you with a tool to see what your profile looks like to other users - suggesting you're *NOT* that computer proficient!
"Wait til I get going! Now, where was I? " (Bensafrickingenius proves his mettle by quoting The Princess Bride)
OK, next, you show what a gun nut you are by linking to the "Firearms Multimedia Guide." BUT!!! No true gun nut would do that! If you advertise that you're a gun nut, then the Obama administration knows EXACTLY who's door to knock down first when they come for our guns!!! Silly girl!!!
In closing, I don't know WHAT to think about you, so I take it back. Well done, Lisa (or whatever your name is).

more diagnosis != better diagnosis
I work in public education. The more special ed. students we can identify, the more money we get. Think on that a bit...

Utterly brilliant. Thanks for posting. Just shared it with a bunch of people.
Barack Obama Wins the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize
I guess it makes sense they would give this to him now, before he has accomplished anything. The longer the wait, the more of an abysmal failure he will be. They *HAVE* to give it to the first black US President. But it must have been clear to them that it was now or never.

NASA's LRO Captures High-Res Pics of Apollo Landing Sites
"On places like slashdot I like the more relaxed atmosphere and I'm not going to proofread and re-read everything I write, otherwise it would consume way too much time. I can live with people poking at my grammar and other errors."
Uh uh, no fucking way, asshole. YOU are the one who wanted to jump down America's throat for being "ignorant." Fine, do so. But, in your first sentence, try not to make at least 3 errors. First, you did not capitalize "America." Second, "it's" instead of "its," as already mentioned. Third, you used a comma after "ignorance" when the appropriate punctuation mark would have been a semicolon. By the way, asshole, I'm a math major, not an English major. And I'm drunk.
"But america seems to be special in that it prides itself on it's ignorance, try having an intelligent discussion about ideology with many Americans to see what I mean. "
