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

flyneye Re:Boy toy (755 comments)

You realize, the intended repercussions of advertising it as a boy toy, was, as by geek design; to enable a geek to invite a girl over to see his computer, and even offer to let her touch it, and the computer too.THEN the girl was supposed to get hooked on programming. I guess no one got it. Must've been too distracted by flying toasters n shit.

In UK, Internet Trolls Could Face Two Years In Jail

flyneye Re:Ahhhh.... (485 comments)

Yeah, whatever. Chris Grayling needs to brush the goo out of his teeth before appearing in a news article looking like an inbred version of James Spader yodeling behavior modification for the world, into the tiny microphone between his legs. He just needs to stick his head right back up his ass , and not come out 'till his teeth are properly brushed.
            I'll troll queenie till he cries, what's he gonna do, write a strong letter of protest?

How Curved Spacetime Can Be Created In a Quantum Optics Lab

flyneye Re:Damn (89 comments)

I spent two weeks teaching relativity and quantum mechanics to an illiterate redneck.
It only took two weeks.
Next week, I teach a vocal class for pigs.
I get paid a subsidy and hope to be very annoying.

Lego Ends Shell Partnership Under Greenpeace Pressure

flyneye Re:Pixie Dust (252 comments)

I suspect some other motive. I mean, really, who could give a shit what Greenpeace thinks? They're a fucking joke!
I think something went sour between Legos and Shell, so Legos is just blaming Peengrease for benefit of the press.
Greenpeace never did anything of any real consequence except add comedy to news programs.

NASA Finds a Delaware-Sized Methane "Hot Spot" In the Southwest

flyneye Re:yes, let's "zoom out" (213 comments)

That's what we get for accepting this democrazy horseshit last century.
Now we're up to our ass in a one party system of Repubmocrats and they're trying to gas us out as population control.
The best we can do is vote for ANYONE except a Republican or Democrat and hope enough get in to slow their evil plans down a bit.

Infected ATMs Give Away Millions of Dollars Without Credit Cards

flyneye Re:This doesn't add up (83 comments)

Sounds like they would bleed them instead of emptying them. Their are limits to the amount you can withdraw at once. A couple machines a couple times a week would have a single guy living pretty well in a work free existence.

Past Measurements May Have Missed Massive Ocean Warming

flyneye Re:please no (423 comments)

I'd settle for something more credible than all this. I agree with you, being good custodians IS the responsible thing to do, anyway. Meanwhile, keeping a population fed and working with a modern standard of living in industrial nations, while doing the legwork necessary to implement change that doesn't endanger the former, should be done in a trustworthy non-fanatical way. If not, lessons not learned ,they will "continue to bang their heads", "doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results" until it feels better or comes to consequence.
Do it right, and don't come running in here every 10 minutes, waving your arms and shouting, "The Sky is Falling, The Sky is Falling!" everytime one of your expensive new toys coughs up some theoretical sampling of what it could be like if only we lived in cartoonland and tell me it's credible or YOU'RE FIRED FLINTSTONE! I suppose that about sums it up.

Past Measurements May Have Missed Massive Ocean Warming

flyneye Re:please no (423 comments)

Yes, but what is the OCEANS effect on this. Up until last week, that data was not even considered because we didn't have that data. Now we have the data within grasp and need only the time to compile it. Water covers more than 2/3 of the planet. It is silly, misleading and ignorant to produce results based on less than 1/3 of the necessary data. Further, there may be even more criteria missing, if they were stupid enough to exclude this and try to produce an end product.
It's not that I don't "think" (which is different than "know" or "believe") something may be wrong, but, it cannot be shown in these dark ages of science where money , politics and ambition ARE included in "findings".

flyneye Re:please no (423 comments)

I'm saying, instead of working their asses off to produce results, which has landed them in the question of political and monetary bias, they should work their asses off first, to include ALL the criteria necessary to produce a REAL guess.
I view this as missing over 2/3 of the data. So naturally their endeavors seem like a snake oil cure or a carnie blathering crap into a bullhorn in front of the freakshow tent.

flyneye Re:please no (423 comments)

The models are missing more than 2/3 of the data necessary to begin to believe they have a rudimentary grasp of ANYTHING.
It's a fact that results up to now are a myth propagated by career scientists and college departments striving for relevance and funding,
Nice of you to drop by and wave a flag for your favorite team; we'll call and let you know if you're needed any further.

These aren't weather models, as others will doubtless tell you.
Besides, how many weathermen are very accurate beyond 3 days?
Not good enough, even if it were a factor.

flyneye Re:please no (423 comments)

Since Oceans cover more than 2/3 of the earth, and that data is not factored due to ignorance, I'm going to call that so far from accurate, it almost appears to be blatantly manipulation by biased parties. DUH!
