NSA Says It Foiled Plot To Destroy US Economy Through Malware

cortcomp Way to "save" the economy (698 comments)

1) China supposedly destroys most pc's (and servers), we have our pants down. Insurance companies probably say not paying over terrorism clause but government stops that with "executive order" 2) i go on a hiring spree and sell more PC's than i can make, as does everyone else 3) service sector goes nuts installing and re-updating infrastructure 4) even homeless drunks with no skills can unwrap keyboards and set out system units for more skilled people 5) people get short-lived (1-2 years) but paying jobs and training 6) I make tons of money and blow it on strippers, houses, cars, and whatever i can think of, putting it back into the economy 7 most every small and medium business makes out on this deal. Sure, some insurance companies go bankrupt, but it would trigger some much needed liquidity oversight in that industry. THANK GOD YOU STOPPED ALL THAT!

Elementary School Bans Students From Touching Each Other

cortcomp Re:what about freeze tag? (336 comments)

"You can't touch anyone, but feel free to shoot rubber bands at them AS LONG AS THE RUBBER BAND ISN'T TOUCHING THEM BEFORE LEAVING YOUR FINGER! THEN YOU'RE TOUCHING THEM! Refer to chart in appendix C for minimum rubber band engagement distances." This will also end the age old game of "Stop hitting yourself! Stop hitting yourself!"
