North Korea Developing Electromagnetic Pulse Weapons

charlesbakerharris Re:Subway data? (191 comments)

Addendum: Just to throw the capitalist pigdogs off the trail, I will triple-crypto-encode the various lines using colors: Red, Orange, Blue, Green, and Silver. With some purple too, if you want the commuter rail, but do not think for an instant that that won't cost you extra.

North Korea Developing Electromagnetic Pulse Weapons

charlesbakerharris Subway data? (191 comments)

Hell, I've got subway data from Boston. Pay no attention to mbta.com, North Korea - I will sell you detailed subway schedules and maps of the entire Boston area for the paltry sum of $1m. Cash. Not fake cash. Up front. Bring a USB key.

Fighting TSA Harassment of Disabled Travelers

charlesbakerharris Re:You are an idiot. (525 comments)

Right. Because Ron Paul had a plausible chance of winning, AMIRITE? Did your parent poster need to spell out "which major party can you vote for that has a snowball's chance in hell of winning..." because that wasn't sufficiently obvious already?

Is It Time To Enforce a Gamers' Bill of Rights?

charlesbakerharris Re:Yea... no. (469 comments)

Oh, I was just following your vapid argument to its dumb conclusion. I guess that upset you, but to be fair, you do seem pretty easy to upset.

Is It Time To Enforce a Gamers' Bill of Rights?

charlesbakerharris Re:Yea... no. (469 comments)

That makes sense - if we're not busy complaining about Wiley & Sons vs. Kirtsaeng, we really shouldn't complain about anything else. Folks, remember: you should only ever take issue with one thing at a time. If you're not cool with something, make darn sure the rest of the world is alright by you until you're done being mad about that one thing! I, for one, am glad we've had focus brought to this conversation, so that instead of talking about the gamers' bill of rights, or simcity, we can instead just talk about Wiley & Sons vs. Kirtsaeng. And that's thanks to you, CanHasDIY. From all of us: thank you.

SimCity 5: How Not To Design a Single Player Game

charlesbakerharris Re:Wrong lesson. (569 comments)

Do what they did in one of the earliest scathing reviews of it. Start a game, then simply press "Next Turn" around 200 times until the AI wins the game for you.

charlesbakerharris Re:Are gays varelse? (1174 comments)

At the very least, gays are generally cultured enough not to eat ramen. Does that make them varelse, by definition?
