Colorado Sued By Neighboring States Over Legal Pot

buckfeta2014 Put up a wall at the border. (442 comments)

Toll booths. "Random" inspections. Lengthy waits in a office while people tear your car apart and give you an anal probe. I mean, it works for Canada and Mexico, right?

FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

buckfeta2014 Re:Old news (508 comments)

They didn't name names, but you're completely willing to do so even though you don't know who did it, and it could have been someone on the other side completely. You are precisely the kind of person that you claim to be railing against.

Oh please. It's not as if I'm the one doxxing or harassing people on twitter. If anything, my comment was speculation at best. Most people who have been following gamergate since September can put two-and-two together and come to the same conclusion. If I'm wrong, so be it, but the chances of that aren't very likely.

FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

buckfeta2014 Re:Old news (508 comments)

I hate replying to myself, but I also wanted to mention, it's been suggested that Brianna Wu didn't even leave her house the night of her supposed doxxing... Which makes her look like even more of a hypocrite.

FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

buckfeta2014 Old news (508 comments)

Anyone whose been following gamergate would know this by now. This is late October news. The FBI has also stated that some people named as hacking victims had in-fact hacked themselves. Didn't name names, but three names that come to mind are Phil Fish, Zoe Quinn and Brianna Wu.

Heathrow Plane In Near Miss With Drone

buckfeta2014 Prove it. (325 comments)

Show me a picture of the drone taken from inside the aircraft. I've heard this kind of story so many times, only to find out that the drone was nowhere near the altitude or location that the complaint originated.

45-Year Physics Mystery Shows a Path To Quantum Transistors

buckfeta2014 blah blah blah (56 comments)

To draw a quote from myself, re nanotubes...

Every time I hear about (snip) quantum computing (snip), they keep saying "soon soon soon"... Well, what I want to know is when this stuff will leave the research labs and be of any practical use to anyone. Either shit or get off the pot already.

British 'Porn Filter' Blocks Access To Chaos Computer Club

buckfeta2014 Re:When will they block Slashdot? (135 comments)

games.slashdot.org is blocked by my work filter because "games". While slashdot does not contain any actual games, the word in the URL is enough to trigger the block. It also blocks gaming news websites as "games", despite being a news website. Add on top of that, randomly blocking electronic cigarette websites as "weapons". Filters are broken indeed.

Nanotube Film Could Replace Defective Retinas

buckfeta2014 Either shit or get off the pot... (24 comments)

To quote myself from the last graphene article...

Every time I hear about graphite, graphene, bucky balls, nanotubes, and all these other carbon buzzwords, they keep saying "soon soon soon"... Well, what I want to know is when this stuff will leave the research labs and be of any practical use to anyone. Either shit or get off the pot already.

City of Toronto Files Court Injunction Against Uber

buckfeta2014 Dubious claims (169 comments)

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people.

4th largest? Somehow I doubt that.

New York is big, but I imagine that Las Vegas, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, and DC are bigger than Toronto.
