Alva Noe: Don't Worry About the Singularity, We Can't Even Copy an Amoeba

durrr Re:Looks dead (418 comments)

They implemented it as a lego bot a few weeks ago. Also there's little to update on a project when you have all the neurons mapped out and all the data there, the worm isn't going to evolve new neurons anytime soon.

So if I get a law enforcement guy to record a movie with his bodycam it falls into the public domain?

It was the first reply and no one had posted any reply to it. The default comment sorting system means that I get maximal exposure by replying to it.

Most Planets In the Universe Are Homeless

I always wondered why wandering planets couldn't be used instead of dark matter to explain where all the missing mass is.

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

durrr Re:So what? (764 comments)

Unless you intentionally and habitually do trollposting or is incapable of writing a good post everyone once in a while to compensate it's hard to lose your karma.
I don't share the pro-AGW sentiment so I frequently accumulate some negative ratings, even so I'm still rated excellent.

Also, if I use AC it's not logged in my journal and what then would I have to show my grandchildren when I grow old?

The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

durrr Re:Automated hate? (571 comments)

No, the bot should be liable: we need to re-instate trials and executions against non-humans again.
>Judge: "This computer have been found guilty of indiscriminate hatred against millions of people and shall be hanged by the FSB until dead! Do you have any last words?"
>[microsoft sam tts]: You can kill my Process, but you can't kill my open-sourced code!

The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

durrr Hypocrisy (571 comments)

Lets censor and police the internet not because of bomb and drugmaking tutorials and terrorism forums.
Lets do it because someone might insult females online.

Every single person that have spent any extended time online in an environment where you communicate anonymously with strangers have been insulted, harassed and so on. It happens because you eventually end up in a competitive situation(games or arguments).

But of course when xXxPonyWarrior2002xXx calls me a 'shit-eathing motherfucking fag-whore' and wishes me death from cancer and fire simultaneously it's friendly banter between two men. But when he calls GamurGrrl99 a slut it's suddenly a confirmation that all men are misgyonistic pigs and that we can't have such a thing as a free internet anymore because it's full of heartless trolls.

NPR: '80s Ads Are Responsible For the Lack of Women Coders

durrr Re:All the movies had women in business (786 comments)

Women are the reason there's no women coders. I'm getting really tired of females being allowed to externalize all their problems while males are not.

Then wait until the boys hit puberty.
Of course it would lose all value due to the overabundance so the investment will never pay off.

Flight Attendants Want Stricter Gadget Rules Reinstated

durrr Re:That's not the reason you're being ignored. (406 comments)

"The miraculous landing on a wheat field had only a single death among the 250 passengers on board. An anonymous passenger said some smug looking asshole that didn't brace had his skull cracked on the seat in front of him as the plane made a hard touchdown."

They never say anything about floating seats in the EU.
Maybe they assume all the corpses floating around will suffice?

Wind Power Is Cheaper Than Coal, Leaked Report Shows

durrr Re:Too bad... (610 comments)

"This project was carried out and authored by Ecofys. "
"Ecofys is a leading knowledge and innovation company in the field of renewable energy, energy efficiency and climate change."

How surprising that a report written by a renewable energy company found out that renewable energy is best energy.

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

durrr Re:More feminist bullshit (728 comments)

This is not a problem exclusive to women.
As a man you can also get your life disrupted by death threats, unordered pizzas/taxis/products and doxxing.

It's probably easier to get singled out for it as a women, but if you are subject to it as a man you'll get much less support to cope with it. This is reflected in the offline world too as a MUCH higher suicide rate for men compared to women. Trying to construct this as some purely misgyonistic issue is just reinforcing the gender bias of men as some disposable soldier caste and is likely to aggrevate misgyonistic tendencies overall in society.

If you insist that this is just about females then you're a proponent for gender privlege and not equality.
