Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

chilvence Re:No, no. Let's not go there. Please. (937 comments)

Ahh total bullshit. I am as atheist as they come and I don't feel the need to join an 'atheist club' or bore people to death with my atheistness. That would just be carrying on the worst habits of religious nutters in my opinion. Incidentally, I reckon most religious people would shit themselves if they realised just how many people were atheist beyond those who insist on turning atheism into a quasi religion.

Ask Slashdot: What Are the Best Games To Have In Your Collection?

chilvence Re:This is very Subjective. (382 comments)

I find it completely the opposite way. The games I used to play were so great that I played them until I broke them, until they were what I saw when I closed my eyes, and I can still go back to them today and genuinely enjoy them, even though I have tired myself out on them. The problem I have is I find it hard to find anything that measures up to those experiences and memories. 300 people can work on a game for 3 years and yet I can play it for 3 minutes and think "For fucks sake, this is just boring".

Duolingo is a Free, Crowdsourced Language Learning App (Video)

chilvence Re:Free as in Google Search is Free? (75 comments)

Wahhh wahh wahh I want it free and no strings attached and delivered to my door and everything to be done for me me me me me!

Of course it is free, there is no money changing hands, that is what 'free' means in this context. Free at the point of delivery. But there is a classical barter going on here. They do something for you, you in return do something for them. They aren't fucking touching you in special places, they are just encouraging you to translate some poxy sentences from one language to the other. You in return get to use your obviously immensely undervalued brain power to learn something useful. Try to whinge about it when they actually are trying to put one over on you, it makes you look like less of a twat.

Duolingo is a Free, Crowdsourced Language Learning App (Video)

chilvence Re:Wife (75 comments)

Well if you'll excuse me being blunt, but that is pretty bloody obvious to the extent that you don't even really need it explained to you. Languages that are in close contact with each other share some words, what a fucking surprise. Surprise is from French by the way, and fucking is from Dutch.

UK ISPs To Send Non-Threatening Letters To Pirates

chilvence Re:Avast! (93 comments)

Oh fuck off. Movie piracy is in no way comparable to physical rape. Cunt. You are one sick fucker to be able to conjure up such a story in such detail, anyway.

Free (Gratis) Version of Windows Could Be a Reality Soon

chilvence I have a better idea (392 comments)

I'm still waiting for the version where they fucking well pay me to use it. Do you have any idea what it is like to be rudely awakened from the earnestly and lovingly designed Acorn RISC OS?

Free (Gratis) Version of Windows Could Be a Reality Soon

chilvence I heartily concur with your assessment. (392 comments)

Javascript "Apps" are the reason I just had to replace my perfectly serviceable 10 year old Athlon XP machine before it physically broke down from exhaustion. Every machine I have had before I have had the pleasure of using until it caught fire from overuse. The smell of burning capacitors is still fresh in my nostrils after all these years. Fuck Apps. Fuck them in the anus with a cactus. And for that matter, fuck my spell checker for insisting that it should be written as "JavaScript".

Most people use meat technology suspension. You see a bump, you suspend your self with your arms and your legs. Springs are just dead weight and spongy pedalling.

N. Korea Could Face Prosecution For 'Crimes Against Humanity'

chilvence Re:BBC pushed for tortue after 9/11 (325 comments)

You're a total dork. Most of the world population WANTS Korea to re-unifiy. They want Korea to re-unify, shut the fuck up with the tit-for tat squabbling over 60 year old bullshit and actually have some sort of healthy stable relationship with the rest of the world, without seeming like it might explode at any instant. Do you know what an unstable neighbour is? A fucking liability, that is what. Look at Germany. We basically leveled the country, then the Russians decided they wanted to cut it in half. Did it actually solve any problem? NO, and I am delighted that the dickbag politicians involved got bored of that charade and let the country re-constitute itself.

N. Korea Could Face Prosecution For 'Crimes Against Humanity'

chilvence Re:Why now? (325 comments)

Meh. The prison population in the US is indeed ridiculous, and you do need to really have a long hard think about what merits prison time, but calling prison labour slave labour is bullshit. Prison labour is punishment for a crime. Don't want to be punished? Try not to do a crime! What should the prisoners be doing, watching TV and eating pizza?

Star Trek Economics

EU Parliament Rejects Asylum For Snowden

chilvence Re:More vile propaganda from Slashdot owners (88 comments)

I'm tired of this argument. Russia might have been officially atheist, but it drank deeply from the well of the quasi religion of communism as a substitute. For all intents and purposes, that WAS the religion, and the intelligent people were the ones that saw through the dogma. And then got gulag'd. Scientology has no 'god' either, yet somehow gets to call itself a religion. Do you think it sets a good example for the idea of religion in general?

So what are we actually getting angry about here when we say religion is dumb - are we angry about the non existence of god, frankly I don't care if it is true or not, or are we angry the willingness of certain types of people to wrap themselves in written bullshit made up by somebody else without actually thinking for themselves? When you stop using your own common sense to make decisions, you abandon what we think of as a solemn duty.

ICANN's Cozy Relationship With the US Must End, Says EU

chilvence Re:Huh? (193 comments)

To be completely fair, the European countries were only weak because we invented all the new and exciting ways to crush each other back into the stone age and then just HAD to try them out, with predictably debilitating results. Russia was awfully lucky that we were all more interested in fighting each other. Imagine if the UK had said 'Well, bad luck France and Belgium, Fritz won fair and square' and then we all sat back in our deck chairs and watched. You'd have had no one to invite you to the party!
