And once infected, you are twice as likely to get in a car accident, among other negative effects.

I'm sure car accidents weren't an issue 10.000 years ago. :)

Is the Porsche Carrera GT Too Dangerous?

d3m0nCr4t Re:Most are missing the point (961 comments)

And blaming the driver. A little background. While not professional drivers Walker and the driver were on a race team together and did plenty of circuit races. The guy driving has a GT3 so is more than familiar with the class of cars in question. Each had many more hours logged racing than any pilot would have flying before being able to get his flight license. It's easy to blame the driver, and it could rightly end up that way. However, the question of whether the car malfunctioned or should not be considered street legal should also be asked. Point being, if you believe these guys had no business driving this car then nobody shy of an F1 driver should be able to by them, hence they are too dangerous to sell to the general public.

They had no business racing that car on a public road. If you want to race, do it on a race track.

Britain's Conservatives Scrub Speeches from the Internet

d3m0nCr4t Re:Where's the torrent file? (234 comments)

I dunno, but I'm guessing none of these politicians have ever heard of the Streisand Effect.

I dunno, but I'm guessing none of these politicians have ever heard of 1984.

Oh they have, but instead of feeling appalled, they just get a hard-on.

I switch from mobile to calculator/numeric keypad and I never seem to make any mistakes. I switch automatically without even giving it any thought.

"Farming" Amoebas Discovered

d3m0nCr4t Not that weird a discovery... (49 comments)

If you look at it, it doesn't seem that weird to me. I mean, this is probably how the first multiple cell creatures came into existence, simply by working together!

If aliens ever landed and they tell they have been monitoring our transmissions for years, they'll probably get promptly arrested by the RIAA for not paying the content... :p

How The Matrix Online Went Wrong

d3m0nCr4t Re:From TFS (144 comments)

Yep, but that 1 movie consists of 3 parts:

1. Neo gets freed.
2. Neo gets training.
3. Neo beats the bad guys.

Hence "Trilogy", but strange to put a trilogy in one movie... ;)
