Frankly, we need something to hold in check the various sociopathic assholes that from time to time attack other people.

Math and Science Popular With Students Until They Realize They're Hard

cheaphomemadeacid Chicken Scratches (580 comments)

So, did math discover computers yet? Maybe we don't need to shorten every variable to 1 character just so you can write it fast by hand anymore? Maybe math can start using, let me think, this new invention called "Words with meaning" instead? Nah of course not then more people would understand it and that would be really bad wouldn't it?

cheaphomemadeacid Re:Racism is a cause, (474 comments)

If they fix the problem they can't scream racism as loud, which is probably why government isnt actually interested in fixing things since they'll have to try getting votes with one less emotional argument.

The Power of a Hot Body

cheaphomemadeacid Re:Matrix (161 comments)

So... you're saying that when noone captures your bodyheat, you don't generate any? I really really don't see the logic here. Why on earth are you assuming that people don't lose bodyheat? Why the word 'drain'? Its not a heatdrain, its using excess heat and transfering to another building. damn you slashdot for modding this shoddy logic 'insightful'
