NSA Says It Foiled Plot To Destroy US Economy Through Malware

flayzernax Sinking the ship to drown a few rats. (698 comments)

Is not saving the US economy.

You mean, you got richer while the poor got poorer and infrastructure needed maintenance, protecting us from a trivial to defend against and non-existent threat.

It's time the American people said fuck no we don't need no big brother to watch over us. I know were about a centaury 2 late, but it's never to late to effect change.

Russian Missile Test Seen and Photographed By ISS Astronauts

flayzernax Re:Norway (37 comments)

Oh wait Phil Plate is being the retard here nvm... we can move along. No overarching conspiracies. Just one dumb skeptic that has to bring up some old bullshit every time something happens remotely related to their experiences.

Russian Missile Test Seen and Photographed By ISS Astronauts

flayzernax Re:Norway (37 comments)

I find it od why they have to compare what looks like two completely separate phenomena. One is symmetrical, a mono heu, scews, lasted a long time, and blurred, while the other is asymmetrical, doesn't blur, and doesn't fade to a direction, is multi-parted and hued, and lasted a short time.

Is this some rant... whats with the accreditation to Phil Plait. The two incidents are in no way similar. The news agency is dumb.

I really believe the current one is a missile launch. But I am extremely skeptical about the light show over Norway being caused by a missile.

Just some B.S. news story full of ignorance that looks like its trying to still downplay the Norway spiral after all this time.

So either the news person is dumb or they are both dumb and working to erode peoples perceptions of reality.

Conflict Minerals and Cell Phones

flayzernax Re:Oil? (136 comments)

By the way my smoked salmon comes from Thailand imported into California. Seems like it would be cost inefficient to burn all that diesel fuel and run those container ships. When it could be sailed down the coast or shipped overland or by plane from the NW. So its not even just electronics.

Conflict Minerals and Cell Phones

flayzernax Re:Oil? (136 comments)

The leading manufacturer of owned assets overseas. How much actually gets made in the USA? Don't BS because the "ledger" goes to some fat ass in wall street.

Who owns Sony-Erikson and where are their manufacturing facilities?

flayzernax Re:Oil? (136 comments)

Because you don't. You make it for your neighbors and sell it to your friends. Rather than raping and pillaging the rest of the world through some corporate illusion that Foxconn is a good company.

And plastics (Dupont) (Union Carbide from back in the day).

People of America you are getting bamboozled and ripped off. You could be making these things yourselves in your own small companies and making 100% of the profit. Yet you are a consumer of some megacorp that borders on monopoly and exports all trade and work oversease. These huge companies make and buy the materials for these things for slave labor cost or less.

If we did it ourselves, it'd be the same cost because it is marked up so much. Yet you would get the profit. Not some rich 1% person living behind so much government force and protection you can never take them on.

You live off the fat of your investments and the trickle down economics of McDonalds.

To Boldly Go Nowhere, For Now

flayzernax Re:Human missions are better for long term health (308 comments)

Exactly, right now were locked into whatever the U.S. Government thinks is great for space exploration. Though India and China have their own plans.

Theres plenty 'resource' 'manpower' etc... to drive manned space flight if a group of us wants it.

To Boldly Go Nowhere, For Now

flayzernax Re:Human missions are better for long term health (308 comments)

This, we need to push the boundaries of the human race. It is only infeasible and inefficient because we don't want to develop the tech to do it. Two centuries of manned missions and it'll change the entire landscape of our civilization.

Manned missions are indeed actually the better long term investment. Robot missions are great for JPL however who has the market cornered.

GTA V Makes $800 Million In 24 Hours

flayzernax Slashdot fanbois. I am seriously dissapoint. (396 comments)

You cannot take any criticism of your stupid GTA games.

Seriously. Those of you fanboing this franchise please step outside of your basements and take a look around. Re-evaluate your priorities. And stop marking -5 troll people who tell you your shit stinks.

I really genuinely think this is most likely the most genuine EMO response I have ever gotten on the web. You all are nerd cred revoked.

GTA V Makes $800 Million In 24 Hours

flayzernax Re:Sure (396 comments)

GTA's satire is weak sauce compared to other games. Mostly I guess because they didn't want to break something called 'immersion'. Which is broken by their above dedication to a non-hollywood esque environment. It totally does not suit educated and enlightened tastes.

Mystery of Missing Martian Methane Deepens

flayzernax What would say be the results if we sent the probe (53 comments)

to.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sierra_Madera_crater ?

Lots of methane or trace amounts? Or very little at all? What isotopes.

Mars is a dead planet, supposedly if there where any life at all it would only exist in extremely unique and sheltered conditions.

Sending a probe to an exposed crater is not likely to produce results. Mars needs a century of exploration, or at least a few decades of manned exploration before we can say yes, no, maybe with much of a degree of certainty. I've seen more yes's than no's. And this mission is a weak no in my book.

I'm making an assumption here based on my own biased information. I suppose not so smart. But I've learned that my intuition is pretty dead on. It would be interesting to see the average income level, education, and IQ of all these first day sales though.

flayzernax Re:Incredible. (396 comments)

Who cares. I think its dumb to be buying the brand at premium prices. Its not a "who dares" no one is supposing we legislate against it. Some of us are just sitting here rolling our eyes going "Oh my god, what hath the humans wrought".

How to write a Parody: A Letter to Verizon Customers

flayzernax flayzernax writes  |  about 10 months ago

flayzernax (1060680) writes "Here is a short satire in the form of a F.A.Q. It succinctly sums up issues around the NSA's request for Verizon to release our data. Notice the uniform our president wears is almost identical to that of the Turkish prime minister.

Yesterday it came to light that the National Security Agency has been collecting millions of phone records from you each and every day. Since that news was released, many of you have called the White House with questions and concerns about this new program. To save my time and yours, here are answers to three of the F.A.Q.s (Frequently Asked Questions) we’ve been hearing from you:

Why is Epic a troll?

flayzernax flayzernax writes  |  about 4 years ago

flayzernax (1060680) writes "Why does replying to a comment with "Epic" as in "That was an epic comment dood your awesome" constitute troll? How old are the geezers here? Lets mod anything troll randomly... and how the heck do you trill down to the comment that says "Epic" and find it and make it troll, nice way to use mod points. How does the rest of the slashdot community feel about this as "Epic" has been around forever... and its not a trolly comment."
