How YouTube Music Key Will Redefine What We Consider Music

flyneye Re:Sweet, wait, huh? (104 comments)

It was a shill for a pay service. If you want to PAY for what is free elsewhere.
Personally, I wouldn't pay for it. Chances are, the band who wrote it and plays it will never see the money, it goes directly to the owners of the song; the music industry. So, if you pay for music, you are actually encouraging an industry that steals intellectual property, rips off the artist and in most cases discards the artist after their peak of profit dwindles. Artists could do without the industry by simply giving away their music, as promotional, and charging to play live. No industry needed for this scenario. This is the age of the internet, the do-it-yourselfer, the tools are within everyones reach. A band doesn't need an industry, maybe a few friends to help is all, that is needed. Fuck the industry. Don't pay for music, it only encourages the middlemen to pump up the price and rip EVERYONE off, while contributing nothing of any real value. It is a parasite. Don't pay for music.

What Happens When Nobody Proofreads an Academic Paper

flyneye Re:Big woop (170 comments)

I would have even said that; the thing that happens when no one proof reads a paper is; The press or some other organization get hold of it and declare it SCIENCE or quote it as a "study". Especially before any reasonable revue.

Mayday PAC Goes 2 For 8

flyneye Re:Nothing's gonna change. (224 comments)

I still lived in Kansas for Dole, was here for both Boeing and Joyland.
The Unions killed the aircraft industries here.
Apathy killed Joyland. AND I remember taking my own cooler of beer to Riverfest for the streetdance.
Yes, I was serious, yes others took me seriously.
Your time is up, insert another coin.

How To End Online Harassment

flyneye Re:here we go (827 comments)

Complete spacefiller. You could've replaced the word women with Negroes, Islamic, Cowboys, Indians, Stamp Collectors, Nose Pickers and others, with the same cumulative effect on the public.
If it is an activist article, it is certainly underpowered, If it is supposed to be news, the poster has lived in a cave for the last decade. If it is revelatory, then it is certainly plagarized and unimaginative. Nope, I think we have internet stuffing here. Just taking up space , like this post. And here you are, at the last sentence, still reading...

Long-term Study Finds No Link Between Video Game Violence and Real Violence

flyneye Re:What? (250 comments)

Until such a time as the NEXT "study" comes out and shows that video-games bring out violent behaviors.

Study; people place far too much emphasis on this elusive beast. Tack on the word; scientific and you have a tool to move the masses toward a political view.
Put it in a college dept. and you can keep your students busy and out of your hair, giving something to grade their performance by, while promoting your political views and affecting public opinion. (In spite of the fact that much relevant criteria was ignored to shape the study toward something useful for YOUR idealism.)
Nope, the "Study" is just another millstone around the neck of science, ridding it of credibility for future generations.
Politics and science don't mix, like a sardine milkshake and spicy breakfast cereal. People are stupid, but not as stupid as "studies" show them to be.

Mayday PAC Goes 2 For 8

flyneye Re:Nothing's gonna change. (224 comments)

Here, even the Democrats voted Republican. Our Democrats were clearly too far left for the red state this is.
We put back in a Governor that few actually like, because the Dem was a known tax and spend 'crat. We got rid of one of those last election, stupid Sebilius wound up running the Omamacare website. Dumb, right? Put a fuck-up in charge of a mission critical task. Typical Obama.

We put a lazy absentee senator (Pat Roberts) back in because the Democrats dropped out of the race to support an "independent" that out 'cratted the Democrats, bobbled his head when he talked and avoided taking a stand on any issue that might show him to be a Democrat in disguise. Honestly, he must've thought the state were simple peasant rubes.

Politics here aren't as complicated as the babbling heads would have you think. No special situation or formula at work here. Libertarians took 2-4% of the vote wherever they appeared.

Mostly the Repubs just had to show up and give the usual, "no new taxes, no gay marriage, no illegal immigrants, No Obamacare, keep your guns, keep your money,keep your dignity" and they were in like they were covered in KY Jelly. The Dems just did the usual "We can raise a tax to fix this, we can be stylishly modern on social issues, we'll do it for the kids, we'll save the Illegal Aliens, we'll impose the latest greatest socialist philosophies and turn your state into a hippy heaven.
This is Kansas. We even re-elected Chris Kobach, who penned the infamous Arizona immigration law as well as ours. Democrats have fucked Kansas every time they accidentally get elected. No miracles here. This is a red state and going to stay that way, because of that. But on the bright side we can have Kansas made clips for our guns with any amount of bullets, assault rifles, short shotguns and marijuana is still illegal, untaxed and cheap. GO CHIEFS!

I expect to be conventionally alive ...

flyneye Re:Ask the damn question (187 comments)

Consciousness is abstract. Computers are concrete. It will be possible to transfer consciousness to a computer when a million monkeys write and score the Broadway version of "Mein Kamph" . You can however script reasonably predictable responses to f.a.q. in an A.I. environment with a suitable amount of programming and bloodletting. Not the same thing, but it appears impressive to the masses.

flyneye Re:Ask the damn question (187 comments)

When you're fit to feed to worms. Not respiring. The last fart leaves your cooling body. Roughly 7 minutes after your heart quits beating.First your vision will go, then a couple minutes later your hearing ceases, then the immense pain goes away right before your last thought. Fine'. 7-9 minutes.

Florida-Based Magic Leap Builds Its Team With Bay Area Hires

flyneye Re:Nice ad as story you've got there (161 comments)

Bay Area to S.Fla ... They could've just asked how many people would prefer to leap from one frying pan into another frying pan...
Perhaps there would be a lower cost of living and fewer distractions from work to locate in Omaha, not to mention its centralized location.

Terrorists Used False DMCA Claims To Get Personal Data of Anti-Islamic Youtuber

flyneye Re:Typical muslims (389 comments)

No, many religions including the Judeo-Christian types, Buddhists and Vedic -Karnatic types came from a base. Islam may claim the Judeo- Christian base, but it is evident in its origins and philosophies to have fallen out of Mohammeds butt on a bandit/power binge. $cientology happened when Hubbard quit distinguishing between reality and his own fantasies. ( Although I lend some credit to the story of its inception coming from a drinking binge between Hubbard and Heinlein, in which Heinlein sobered up afterward, but Hubbard took the ball and ran)
Nope, many religions have a base. Loads of study, fields of research, mountains of publications are dedicated to this.

Terrorists Used False DMCA Claims To Get Personal Data of Anti-Islamic Youtuber

flyneye Re:Typical muslims (389 comments)

Actually, I hadn't heard about the beheadings by the Hubbardites, but the torture, even ending in death along with starvation, experimentally wacky medical practices, kidnapping and draining of assets, put them in the ballpark.
I know what is going on, do you have a clue? You sound like you just barfed up a Newsweek blurb.

flyneye Re:Typical muslims (389 comments)

You could've replaced Islam or Muslim in the article with $cientology and it still would have made sense.
But, yes I agree about the human rights in both cases.
