Interview: Ask Christopher "moot" Poole About 4chan and Social Media

durrr Question (183 comments)

Do you ever feel responsible or bad for all the lives 4chan have ruined?
I mean there's a lot of anons that have a very unhealthy relationship to their favourite board and spends most of their waking time posting.

Net Neutrality Is 'Marxist,' According To a Koch-Backed Astroturf Group

durrr Re:What's so American (525 comments)

Should your google queries be put in a slow lane with 10k ms ping because they didn't fork over $100 mil for premium service?
Should netflix pay premium for every mb because they're a "high bandwidth user" or face throttling to speeds where compression drops to 120p?

Should ISPs be allowed to have an even more oppressive position than they already have?

Numerous Methane Leaks Found On Atlantic Sea Floor

durrr Re:Global Warming? (273 comments)

According to your logic my toxicity model for iron in well water in Nowhereistan is unaffected by the fact that arsenic levels was elevated by 15000 times above normal in the data samples, because it was at that level all along.

Numerous Methane Leaks Found On Atlantic Sea Floor

durrr Re:Global Warming? (273 comments)

a) What about the hiatus?
b) instrumental data from the layers of the atmosphere does not agree with the proposed mechanisms of stratospheric heating or whatever was suggested.
c) human CO2 emissions are naturally absorbed, just not as fast as we emit it. but given a) and b) and the fact that CO2 is non toxic and improves plant growth I see no reason why we should care about that as opposed to particulate pollutions and toxic emissions.

Anomaly Triggers Self-Destruct For SpaceX Falcon 9 Test Flight

durrr Re:Exactly! (113 comments)

Why would you need luck to survive the escape vehicle separation? It's obviously designed to accelerate at sublethal G forces.
Regarding the challenger disaster: it had no escape possibilities AND the crew telemetry from the challenger showed them as alive until the remnant they were seated in hit the sea.

Cause of Global Warming 'Hiatus' Found Deep In the Atlantic

durrr Re:Every week there's a new explanation of the hia (458 comments)

Current climate models are useless and needs to be reworked, observations have contradicted their predictions and the fundamental assumption that "CO2 = main thermostat, everything else is irrelevant, lets make a wildly increasing graph and alarmist claims" have been wrong from day 1 and very much not scientific at all.

This paper doesn't change anything at all. It's just a restatement of a year old apologist paper.

Quiet Cooling With a Copper Foam Heatsink

durrr Re:So this is a... (171 comments)

Wouldn't call it vaporware, you could cast molten copper into an ant colony and get something looking like that, or 3D print.
For the latter you can't put the "Thousand of lives were lost to bring you this fine piece of hardware" label onto it though.

SLS Project Coming Up $400 Million Short

durrr Re:SLS and comparing to spacex (132 comments)

The SLS is not a deep space vehicle. It's a vehicle to divert tax payer money into the pocket of private enterprises that give a share to politicians. Assuming it ever takes off, it'll be an outdated overpriced piece of shit.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

durrr Re:Pft (962 comments)

It's not actually work related. It's about their opinions.

The author of the article isn't getting shit because she's a lead developer, she's getting shit because she writes articles on gender equality in gaming. Her example persons are also having some female-centric activities.

If I write a gaming opinion piece called "Mens world: why game devs should ignore all whining women and focus on their main demographic" I'd also get a lot of angry mail and spiteful messages. If I write a followup article after such hatemail called "Ruling elite: how a small minority of females with an interest in games try to hijack the industry and suppress dissident opinon" I'd get even more shit heaped onto me.

Is this a sign that I'm harassed because my gender? Is it a sign that the gaming demographic is full of bad persons? Or is it a sign that inflammatory opinion pieces will always result in hatemail?

Hair-Raising Technique Detects Drugs, Explosives On Human Body

durrr Re:And good luck asking for APAP-free medicine! (162 comments)

Anyone prone to willfull abuse will use CWE and get rid of the acetaminophen. Some elderly person getting addicted will instead kill itself.
Drug prescription rules and opinions about drugs are hyped the fuck up and retarded, there's several completely safe drugs that's prescription only and some pretty awful ones that's free for everyone.

Researchers Claim Wind Turbine Energy Payback In Less Than a Year

durrr Re:WUWT (441 comments)

If I need 100GW of coal power at 5% of capacity, can I build only 5% of the coal plants? Will the coal plants have only 5% the running cost?
This is the problem of intermittent power sources, they end up requiring almost the same amount of conventional backup energy sources as if they didn't exist in the first place, so from an economic point of view they're a terrible choice because they're by no means cheap either.

Researchers Claim Wind Turbine Energy Payback In Less Than a Year

durrr Re:WUWT (441 comments)

Running a coal plant at loss doesn't happen when it's a private actor behind it. Either the energy from coal is more expensive to cover for less uptime, or they shut it down and move. I know Germany tries to put itself into a position as saviour of the world and to prove that green energy is best energy but reality doesn't agree.

Researchers Claim Wind Turbine Energy Payback In Less Than a Year

durrr Re:Sounds about right... (441 comments)

Sure, lets build a grid capable of handling 10000 times more than the local demand will ever amount to because we're piping electricity from all europe to china through it.

Or we could take the money that would cost and use it to produce any other form of electricity locally.
