Senate Votes To Turn Down Volume On TV Commercials

boneclinkz Re:Uncharacteristic: (625 comments)

Oh, I understand that this is a big issue for a lot of people, else Congress wouldn't be utilizing it for general pandering. What I was trying to say is that its highlighting a disconnect between my perceptions and those of my peers.

I just want to fit in :(

Senate Votes To Turn Down Volume On TV Commercials

boneclinkz Uncharacteristic: (625 comments)

Normally I'm pretty apathetic about political nonsense, but something about this story enrages me. This is just so unbelievably frivolous, but it sure will play well to the average voter who probably watches 40 hours of television a week and strongly agrees with the statement that "TV viewers should be able to watch their favorite programs without fear of losing their hearing when the show goes to a commercial."

It's not that I'm especially fond of advertisers, it's just that I have trouble acknowledging a world where ANYBODY GIVES A FUCK about this "issue".

Many More Android Apps Leaking User Data

boneclinkz Re:Prevasive? (299 comments)

I felt that the utilitization of the word prevasive added an element of loquatiatory verbosity to an otherwise diphractic article.

Could Anti-Texting Laws Make Roads More Dangerous?

boneclinkz Re:Pervasive surveillance (709 comments)

The camera should store an hour's footage in memory that is RF boradcast from the vehicle, so that police cruisers can get behind you, access your feed, and see if you've been performing any illegal activities while in operation of the vehicle.

Neal Stephenson Unveils His Digital Novel Platform

boneclinkz Re:Enough with the "social" sh*t already. (157 comments)

I have a sinking suspicion that most of the social interaction will be forums posts like "which anime character is General Subutai most like???"

I love it when guys like this try and come off as if they provide some sort of legitimate service, and that they have an actual organized "community."

State of Virginia Technology Centers Down

boneclinkz Awful. (190 comments)

Our primary concern should be a complete audit of World of Warcraft server hardware, to ensure that this vulnerability does not exist in other, more vital networks.

Fire and Explosion At Hydrogen Station Near Rochester Airport

boneclinkz Re:Weird (357 comments)

Haven't you heard? Hydrogen is ultra-combustible-dangerous! Somebody on the sidewalk across the street probably lit up a cigarette. I imagine the trucker reaching out in slow-motion and screaming "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooo."

Drunken Employee Shoots Server

boneclinkz Re:"Automatic" doesn't mean what you think it mean (309 comments)

I always assumed 'automatic' simply referred to the action used to chamber another round, to differentiate from manual operations like levers and pumps.

Video Showing Half a Million Asteroid Discoveries

boneclinkz Gives me a cool idea... (154 comments)

For a potential video game. You pilot a small spaceship, and your job is to shoot asteroids with your laser cannon as they appear. When an asteroid is hit, it breaks into several smaller asteroids. You then have to shoot those asteroids until they break up into asteroids so small that they are no longer a danger. If an asteroid impacts your spaceship, you die.

I think they should call it The Ship that Shoots a Laser Cannon.

First Review of Avatar Special Edition

boneclinkz Re:Really? (387 comments)

There's really a trend in going all "That movie sucks!" against every popular movie, and I'm getting tired of it. It might not be original, and maybe people can say "Oh pocahontas did it first!" but that doesn't change that it was a suspenseful, well-made film with some good points that people could think about.

I would compare it to Star Wars, really. It was an ambitious movie with a cliche plot, passable acting, and very impressive special effects. I enjoyed it in the theaters and now own it on blu-ray. It's not The Usual Suspects, by a long shot, but it is a satisfying movie in its own way.

The Second Age of Airships

boneclinkz Um... (363 comments)

"If you can get beyond the word airship..."

Why would you want to? Airship is an awesome word.

Wouldn't you like to own a private airship? Call up your buds "hey man, wanna come over and watch the Superbowl? Yeah, we'll be hanging out on the airship. I'm planning on floating in circles over the lake at a few hundred feet. I get a 60 inch flat screen, two kegs, and a party sub. Bring your sister."
