FCC Chairman: Americans Shouldn't Subsidize Internet Service Under 10Mbps

dave420 Re:well, duh? (324 comments)

No it doesn't. Why are you making excuses for the ridiculous state of internet access in the US?

Rural areas of Europe frequently have internet access that make most US cities look terribly slow.

The more you parrot your nonsense argument the longer it will take to fix.

Dealership Commentator: Tesla's Going To Win In Every State

Try again:

"Tesla is new, different, and shaking up the ridiculously old way of doing things."

"... basically says Tesla is going to prevail in every state against ..."

New Study Projects World Population of 11B by 2100

dave420 Re:Maybe we if stopped giving Africa food (314 comments)

The problems with Africa are directly born from the west's meddling. Redrawing borders, destroying institutions, creating new ones bent on serving the west, stealing minerals & raw materials, working the native people in to the ground or stealing them. The list goes on. It's massive. Pretending the repercussions of that aren't still being felt - and being felt hard - is pathetic.

Your impression about Africa is nothing but a bunch of racist nonsense. It's not cultural, but educational. Just go look at places in Africa where education is being made available, and you'll mysteriously notice your "cultural" shortcomings disappearing. Weird, huh?

I used to think you were pretty cool, but apparently I was wrong. You're either intellectually lazy or a racist - neither is particularly becoming.

dave420 Re:Oh Canada! (314 comments)

Just a friendly aside: Every time you make a joke about confusing "global warming" or "climate change", you aren't making a criticism (just or not) of the science or even the politics, you are merely telling everyone you don't really understand the terms. Let me help:

Global Warming: The increasing of the average temperature of the planet
Climate Change: The changes to the climate caused by the increase in energy in the climate.

Two different, but related, phenomena.

dave420 Re:Not a problem... (314 comments)

Not all cities are like NYC. The city I live in has lots of green scattered throughout, and smells rather delightful most of the time. I've lived in the countryside, and that can smell far worse than any city I've lived in, especially after they spread some muck. Ew.

If you buy a shit-load of food and waste most of it, clearly your "interesting thing" is clearly untrue. The amount of food wasted in the west is ridiculous.

dave420 Re:How is he incorrect, though? (314 comments)

That's why people have realised to support them in both the short-term and the long-term: Short-term support includes food, medicine, infrastructure, farming help, etc. Long-term support includes more infrastructure, education, health-care, etc.

If you'd thought about this for more than a couple of seconds, you'd not sound like such a callous, ignorant xenophobe.

FCC Chairman: Americans Shouldn't Subsidize Internet Service Under 10Mbps

dave420 Re:Good or Bad News? (324 comments)

Europe is larger than the US, with a comparable population. How come sparsely-populated areas of, for example, Sweden and Norway can have blindingly-fast internet, whereas similarly-populous areas of the US have terrible internet? Your argument is clearly nonsense.

FCC Chairman: Americans Shouldn't Subsidize Internet Service Under 10Mbps

dave420 Re:Americans shoudln't subsidize internet service (324 comments)

I think he's hinting that internet connectivity should be a municipal service, as it is in some parts of the world (which offer better speeds than most US ISPs seem to offer).

FCC Chairman: Americans Shouldn't Subsidize Internet Service Under 10Mbps

dave420 Re:well, duh? (324 comments)

Size has nothing to do with it. Each ISP has local networks connected to each other (and other ISPs) by larger connections. The exact same is true in Europe. If what you say is true, then US cities should have wonderful broadband, but that is clearly not the case. Europe is larger than the US, with a similar population, so your comparison isn't at all accurate, and the more you trot it out in discussions like this, the longer it will take to fix.

ISIS Bans Math and Social Studies For Children

dave420 Re: they will defeat themselves (950 comments)

Of course they're not as bad as ISIS, but to call the Christian Right "harmless" is not very accurate. The sheer number of people dying from back-alley abortions is a testament to that, and that's just one of their areas of "expertise".

APK, no, I was not "destroyed". I pointed out a short-coming in the hosts system, which you failed to counter. That's it. Please stop this charade - it's pathetic.

Scotland's Independence Vote Could Shake Up Industry

dave420 Re:This isn't scaremongering. (489 comments)

And most decent people don't have a problem with lots of people from Pakistan or Bangladesh. It's just racists and xenophobes who have such ridiculous, childish attitudes towards their fellow human beings.

New Global Plan Would Crack Down On Corporate Tax Avoidance

dave420 Re:relevant article (323 comments)

Thanks, APK. It's always nice to know you've got a few spare personalities rattling around in that ol' head of yours. Why do you feel the need to sockpuppet? If you find yourself that devoid of support you might just want to let it go, as you are embarrassing yourself.

Court Rules the "Google" Trademark Isn't Generic

dave420 Re:Evasion != effective debate technique (156 comments)

1. As I pointed out, it doesn't take a psychiatric doctor to recognise the signs of a severely mentally-ill person, just as it doesn't take a chartered surveyor to recognise a house's roof has fallen off.

2. I don't have to show you proof of anything, as I merely pointed out that you defensively jumping to conclusions about my abilities merely illustrates your tenuous grip on reality, and a complete lack of being able to conduct yourself in an open, public discussion

3. I only pointed out that hosts files can't block spam such as your rambling slashdot posts. That's it. I'm not debating the rest of their abilities, as hosts files are so ridiculously simple to understand and implement, any 8-year-old could explain them in depth after 2 minutes of being told what they are and how they work.

dave420 Re:You fail as always (156 comments)

APK - why are you pretending to be someone else? I know multiple personalities are not a classic symptom of schizophrenia, so perhaps you also suffer from something else? You really should get some help - this is embarrassing and so unnecessary.
