Another idiot who didn't read TFA or TFS. Par for the course, this is Slashdot after all.

The Simultaneous Rise and Decline of Battlefield

bmk67 Re:Haha, nobody will do this. (208 comments)

"They" might, but I won't. The last EA game I bought was BF2.

Healthcare IT's Achilles' Heel: Sensors

bmk67 Re:Wait a second. (84 comments)

Wait!? That was a password?

The pharmacy figured that scribble was a prescription and they've been having me stuff strange suppositories up my ass for weeks.

I hate to break it to you, but those aren't suppositories. Around here, we call them "crutches".

NSA Says It Foiled Plot To Destroy US Economy Through Malware

bmk67 Re:NSA failed to halt subprime lending, though. (698 comments)

Quite true. Under US law, "WMD" includes any rifle with a bore larger than 0.50", and anything explosive for use against persons or property, including hand grenades. So of course Saddam's army had WMDs.

You're conflating terms. Those are considered "Destructive Devices", a legal term of art having nothing to do with Weapons of Mass Destruction, a politcal term of art.

EV Owner Arrested Over 5 Cents Worth of Electricity From School's Outlet

bmk67 Re:Cop was "in his car"? (1010 comments)

In many states you can legally shoot someone if they are on your property

That is grossly oversimplifying the law to the point where this statement is completely and utterly false.

Doom Is Twenty Years Old

bmk67 Re:Tunnels of Doom (225 comments)

First I recall was "Alkalabeth: World of Doom!" circa 1979, by Lord British (yep, the same one of Ultima fame).

Yeah, it would not be recognized as a FPS, but it had elements of the genre. Written in Applesoft BASIC.

Oregon Extends Push To Track, Tax Drivers Per Mile

bmk67 Re:Can someone please explain ... (658 comments)

And neither does a mileage based tax! What a coincidence! No one is required to report their mileage for taxes, and there's no infrastructure to handle the case where someone drives outside of the state.

You're apparently unfamiliar with the logistics and politics surrounding the particular crossing that I spoke of.

No politician, sane or not, would propose putting even a voluntary border stop at that particular crossing without also solving the current congestion issues in the area - which requires replacing the bridge, and that is currently DOA because of the politics involved.

If you want to see a border checkpoint, drive farther south to California where you'll see agricultural check stations.

I'm well aware of the border stops in California for the purpose of enforcing California laws. Know of any operated by Oregon? Or operated by anyone else for the purpose of enforcing Oregon law?

Oregon Extends Push To Track, Tax Drivers Per Mile

bmk67 Re:Can someone please explain ... (658 comments)

What if I take my car and drive across the country and back?

You stop at the border inspection station [...]

I'm sorry, you stop at the what?

I cross the Oregon-Washington border at least twice every weekday, and I can assure you that no such thing exists on that particular border crossing - or any other within the state of Oregon, for that matter.

Oregon Extends Push To Track, Tax Drivers Per Mile

bmk67 Re:Can someone please explain ... (658 comments)

You know, I thought the same thing, but look at it another way: Allow them to implement the law like that, and Portland gets stuck with the tab.

I can live with that.

White House Official Tracked Down and Fired Over Insulting Tweets

bmk67 Re:Secret Emails and they fire a tweeter? (208 comments)

You just can't fire people for no reason

I can assure you that where I happen to live, that is absolutely false.

HP CEO Meg Whitman To Employees: No More Telecommuting For You

bmk67 Re:False rumor? (477 comments)

You can have me in the office at the crack of 10:30. Don't expect any meaningful work before.. oops, lunchtime! Off to the pub for my daily four beer lunch. Toodles!

Where were we then? Oh yesh. I don't want to get a DUII on my way home, so I'll be napping under my desk until 6.

Fired? What do you mean, "You're fired"?

Valve Announces Linux-Based SteamOS

bmk67 Re:Amazing (510 comments)

Let us never confuse creating value with capturing value; somehow we have to get them better aligned.

Do we?

Because you know, I was under the impression that not everybody measured value and success by the fatness of one's wallet.

Homeless, Unemployed, and Surviving On Bitcoins

bmk67 Re:Pathetic (403 comments)

You’d be better off trying to find some pre-cooked or raw-consumable, shelf-stable (no refrigeration required) protein, but I’m honestly at a loss to name any complete proteins that fit those requirements that are cheaper than a McWhatever...

Spam. Around here, about $3 for a 12 oz can - over a thousand calories of protein and fat.

Even cheaper, you can easily make a burner out of an empty alumninum soda can that burns rubbing alcohol for fuel.
