Sony Pictures Computer Sytems Shut Down After Ransomware Hack

frikken lazerz Re: Who is going to get the pink slip (155 comments)

Hundreds of workers will get laid off so that Sony can make up for this blunder and stay out of the red. Then the CEO will get a huge bonus for "cutting expenses".

Cops 101: NYC High School Teaches How To Behave During Stop-and-Frisk

It's not just someone's ideal. It's human nature, based on years of evolutionary pressure. It might not be your ideal, but it's reality.

Cops 101: NYC High School Teaches How To Behave During Stop-and-Frisk

frikken lazerz Re: Civics class (481 comments)

How about morals class? Teach people to how to respect one another and treat others the way they'd like to be treated themselves. Let's encourage strong families that stay together and teach kids to respect their elders. And let's teach today's men to stop behaving like women and today's women to stop behaving like men while we're at it. If the moral fabric of society keeps falling apart, we are doomed.

DreamWorks Reveals Glimpse of "Super Cinema" Format For VR Films

And they used to think heavier than air flight was impossible too. People (some of us, at least) are highly creative and might be able to find a way to succeed even against all odds.

Discovery Claims It Will Show a Man Being "Eaten Alive" By an Anaconda

frikken lazerz Discovery? (164 comments)

The channel isn't about learning anymore. Just TV's version of clickbait (advertising, probably misleading, to draw in gullible folks).

Internet Archive Launches Arcade of Classic Games In the Browser

frikken lazerz Re: How long will it last... (94 comments)

Yes, but in many cases it is impossible to know who has the rights. The company could have sold the IP, could have transfered it, or perhaps it had multiple owners or even the company was using it illegally! This could create sort of a chilling effect, where people are afraid to take chances because someone might own the copyrights and come back to sue. That's why the copyright system really needs to be reformed. Copyrights should have to be renewed every 7 years or so for a small fee. If you're making money from it, renew it and you still have the rights. If it's no longer profitable or you have no desire to keep the copyright, don't pay the fee and it becomes public domain. This should keep the big companies happy because they can keep their successful IP for a long time like they do now (and a small fee is nothing if the IP is really profitable) but also allow more works to enter the public domain for remixing, adapting, and other creative uses.

Wrong. Sadly, just because the company doesn't exist doesn't mean it's public domain. The copyrights don't expire upon a company going out of business.

Secret Policy Allows GCHQ Bulk Access To NSA Data

frikken lazerz Re: Time for a Layman's TOR? (95 comments)

I think that's quite a different issue though. Being the neighborhood tthis kind of h head, I've had quite a few people ask me his to stop the government from spying on them. Even the masses to some extent worry about this. They distrust the government, and for pretty good reason based on how it's been behaving lately. Yet, stuff like passwords on their phones or encryption really only matter if someone has access to their device. People seem to trust others around them, and therefore don't worry about this threat. After all, in the average Joe's mind, a hacker attacks victims remotely, not by borrowing your computer and changing the password of their automatically logged in email, for example.

Steve Ballmer Gets Billion-Dollar Tax Write-Off For Being Basketball Baron

frikken lazerz Re: If you tax the rich, they'll leave (255 comments)

Good, let em leave. (Most, because there are a few exceptions) rich folks are assholes who got their riches by taking advantage of others or stuck up pricks who were born into wealth and have no idea what it's like to struggle (no, deciding between a BMW and Mercedes for your third car is NOT a struggle). They soon they go, the better. Get them out of the country, or just send them all the New Jersey (that place is beyond help anyway).

The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

frikken lazerz Re: Hypocrisy (571 comments)

Actually, it seems women have it relatively tame. Sure, they get a lot of random messages asking for cyber sex, but they also get a LOT of benefits for being a women, especially in a geeky place with mostly male audience. Sometimes I'll even register as a woman on for example tech forums because it really does make my question get answered faster and better (by some geek hoping to impress the "chick"). Now compare this treatment to how blacks get treated online. N-bombs and racism everywhere and constant stereotyping, and almost no positive treatment at all. It's also quite bad for gays (although everyone gets called a faggot these days) and Arabs/Muslims. Thought about posting this anonymously, but I guess I really have nothing to lose by attachimg my name to it.

The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

frikken lazerz Not just women (571 comments)

Oh no, not this topic again... Trolls don't care about their tragets' gender. They just want the most harm for the least effort. Women generally are the ones who get offended and emotional about this stuff, and therefore are much easier and more exciting targrta. Men just ignore it or fight back. As they say, the easiest way to make someone stop bullying you is to ignore it and not be offended or bothered (or at least not show it). Either thay, or swing back if the situation calls for it. The bully will move on to someone weaker and raiser to get a rise out of.

The Woman Who Should Have Been the First Female Astronaut

frikken lazerz Re: All about perception (200 comments)

No, the problem is women simply don't make as good of soldiers as men. They are smaller and have less strength, speed, and endurance. There's no way around it. If we replaced male soldiers with female ones, the army would be less effective. It's not always sexism when there's inequality.

Living On a Carbon Budget: The End of Recreation As We Know It?

frikken lazerz Not my problem (652 comments)

Why should I have to live on a carbon budget? Just because Al Gore or some other liberal nutcases (with an agenda to promote green products, of course) tell me so? No way. If I make enough money to live an extravagant lifestyle, you can bet your bottom dollar I'm gonna do it! Global warming is happening regardless of what we do , and there's nothing we cab do to stop it. The best we can do is mitigate its effects. It's largely a natural cycle that has happened time and time again in the earth's past, and we just have to adjust to it. And as humans, the most intelligent creature on this rock, we sure as hell will find a way to do so. Long story short, we should focus our energies on adapting rather than running around in circles screaming that the sky is falling.

Intel Drops Gamasutra Sponsorship Over Controversial Editorials

frikken lazerz Re: This white-knight shit needs to stop (724 comments)

Amen to this. I know it's a controversial position to take,but women have equality (if not superiority) to males. The only reason women don't run the world is because they choose not to. They choose to have children instead. Fair enough, but you can't have it both ways, ladies. And as for the lack of equality in gaming, IT, tec., women simply have different interests. We hate to admit things are biological these days (seems to upset the PC liberals), but women naturally are drawn to more childcare type positions (nursing, teaching). Big deal. And right now, the law is so stacked against men it's not even funny. Domestic abuse? The woman wins by default. Child support, child custody, alimony? Again, men get screwed big time. All of this is in addition to chivalry by males (paying dinners, etc.) and of course, biologically, women still have mate choice, so they can (and many do) use their bodies to have power over men in morally repulsive ways. And I feel really sorry for young men growing up right now, especially those being raised ny single mothers. They are so feminized, by their parents and the school system, which favors women by punishing men for being active and forces them into a more passive feminized role. Sorry this seems to have turned into a rant, but this really needs to be said, because you almost never hear the opposite point of view (at least not in the mainstream).
