The Sony Pictures Hack Was Even Worse Than Everyone Thought

durrr Re:Over what time interval? (528 comments)

If you hit a server or many of them you'll get a fair bit better speed than if you hit a private person with american public tire shitternet. And as long as you're no detected it really doesn't matter if it takes 24 hours or 100 days.

Hawking Warns Strong AI Could Threaten Humanity

durrr Re:So What (574 comments)

An AI would, unlike greenies, be smart enough to realize that:
1:CO2 buildup is not a existential problem
2:exterminating people is not beneficial to them.

We can spend all day making up less and less unlikely scenarios why it will kill us, in the end it won't happen anymore than people are dying when the go faster than a horse or the atmosphere causing a selfsustaining fusion reaction after every nuke.

And nothing of value would be lost. Our robot children could inherit the earth and all our knowledge without the necessity of spending 20 years in school and having to spend their time working for food and shelter, just build them with solar panels and waterproofing.

Big in terms of cost. You might as well use gas turbines instead and can then create energy denovo.

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

durrr Re:Looks dead (455 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.

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.
