Ubisoft Apologizes For Assassin's Creed

dave420 Re:What a non excuse (151 comments)

You appear to be one of the same. You are confusing fundamentalism with moderatism, and then wrapping that up in a nice generalisation which betrays your utter lack of rationality when it comes to people who look different to you. If you are not simply trolling, you are a terrible human being, and your parents and society failed you. The last line shows that you really do like to substitute empirical fact with your own warped ideas of the world, which explains a lot.

dave420 Re:What a non excuse (151 comments)

I'm simply highlighting that what this guy says should be taken with a pinch of salt as he's not even rational enough to understand that a loud minority does not speak for nearly 2 billion people. Thinking about it, I couldn't give a rat's ass about votes. I've got karma to burn, and I can think of no better way to spend it than showing people that muppets like this exist, and that they are drenched in hate to the point they can't even think rationally. Whatevs, yeah?

Mathematicians Study Effects of Gerrymandering On 2012 Election

dave420 Re:I don't recall such interest in gerrymandering (343 comments)

So you think the media just gloms on to the democrats because they like blue? Because that (or some equally shallow reason) is what would have to happen for zraider to not be implying there are differences in the parties. And your sig is cute! Kawaiiii desuuu!

dave420 Re:I don't recall such interest in gerrymandering (343 comments)

Yes, you are generalizing, but then using that generalization to tar and feather entire, varied sections of society. You can pretend that it's "levity", but it's demonstrably just lazy thinking. Oh, and calling out moronic behaviour and attitudes isn't hateful, just honest. It might seem hateful to have one's bullshit called out, but that hate lies squarely in the brain of the bullshit peddler.

Those are contained within the caveat offered by the OP. You seem to be willing to do anything to keep this notion of "them vs. us" alive in your head. That's the scary part, and inherently dangerous to boot.

dave420 Re:Stop this stupid First past the Post system (343 comments)

The third strong party in the UK is an anomaly. They only exist to threaten taking votes from the main parties which don't pander to the third party's voters. FPTP is broken.

Mathematicians Study Effects of Gerrymandering On 2012 Election

dave420 Re:PR works well? Where? (343 comments)

No, the US is in precisely the same situation - from the perspective of a citizen, if the federal government were to disappear, they'd still have their state government. It's not like someone in Iowa is suddenly also represented by the Florida government because the federal government can't get its shit together.

Syrian Electronic Army Takes Credit For News Site Hacking

dave420 Re:Focus on ISIS instead? (22 comments)

Unless you cite sources for your claims, you are indistinguishable from a tinpot nutjob, so what do you expect? If you can't be bothered to do the hard work to demonstrate your sanity, why should anyone else?

And you're the real moron if you think there is anything but fluffy differences between the Democrats or the Republicans. You're also a staggeringly insane moron if you want to make such sweeping generalizations, which only demonstrate you're either not interested (or incapable) of learning what's actually happening in the disparate group you're generalizing.

Grow up, the future begs you.

dave420 Re:I wonder if anyone here has actually played it? (151 comments)

Maybe the "updated graphics" has something to do with it... Naaah - your gut instinct and cursory glance would have immediately shown that to be not the case, as they are the most accurate analytical methods known to man.

Pointing out a poster's frequent xenophobia is trolling, apparently. Good work, Slashdot horde. What a fine community.

How the World's First Computer Was Rescued From the Scrap Heap

dave420 Re:Except... (124 comments)

Correcting knee-jerk nationalism is not being hostile towards the nation in question. You ignored the evidence that the original claim was incorrect simply because someone who agrees with it is, according to you, "hostile towards the US". Pathetic. How are you even an adult? You have the logical acumen on a child arguing about Pokemon.

Can't find a way to also include some of your usual anti-Muslim xenophobic hatred, too? You're slipping.

Scientists Develop "Paint" To Help Cool the Planet

dave420 Re:this AGW thing... (140 comments)

Yes, scientists do, because of the sheer amount of evidence it is happening. You can choose to call them all idiots, or refuse to believe in the scientific method, but all that does is demonstrate that you care more about not changing your attitudes than you do about learning, which reflects poorly on you, your family, your upbringing, and your culture. Why you seem to think it makes you look good is beyond me, but then seeing as you are railing against the scientific method, it's not entirely surprising.

Edsac Goes Live, At UK's National Museum of Computing

dave420 Re:Case revisionism (37 comments)

The BBC's style guide says that if an acronym is to be pronounced as a word (Nasa, for example) then it is to be capitalised like a proper noun. If the acronym is not pronounced as a word (BBC, NSA), then it is written in all upper-case. The more you know!

Health Advisor: Ebola Still Spreading, Worst Outbreak We've Ever Seen

dave420 Re:Burial customs? (237 comments)

No, but if you try to extrapolate that to describe the entire continent, or somehow judge those who eat said meat, you are being irrational to the point of disparaging people for no reason other than your own cultural biases, ignorance, and hair-trigger prejudice.

Health Advisor: Ebola Still Spreading, Worst Outbreak We've Ever Seen

dave420 Re:Burial customs? (237 comments)

With regards to Ferguson you are confusing attitude with culture. Attitudes can become culture, but take time. Attitudes can be formed quickly, especially by things like overzealous police and other forms of daily aggravation. That will fester and sometimes boil over if these aggravations continue for a long enough period of time. Ferguson could have been avoided by trying to claw back the ridiculous, heavy-handed actions of the police across the country. Of course their overzealotry can be explained by many factors they have to endure, and so on all the way down. Trying to draw some arbitrary line and claim that is the cause of these problems only demonstrates your lack of ability to actually think impartially about social issues (whether real or simply perceived), and if everyone did that, there would be no progress.

So yeah, you sound like a small-minded racist fuck. I don't think you mean to be, or that you can only be one, as you are merely a product of your genes and societal pressures - the latter of which can be adjusted rather easily.

dave420 Re:Burial customs? (237 comments)

It was racist (or, more likely, xenophobic and obviously ignorant) because he/she lumped all African cultures together. You're not helping by making massive generalisations, either.
