Last Bastion For Climate Dissenters Crumbling

gottspeed Re:When I make Taco breathe hard... (963 comments)

The planet has been heating up since the ice age. Other planets in the system are heating up too. If you want to think the sky is falling to play into some global scarcity tactic that's cool, but I'm going to keep driving my truck to work.

Company Designs "Big Brother Chip"

gottspeed Re:Engineering oppression (166 comments)

No, you're right, but don't worry; Its the way of things. This situation can't be avoided. There are more smart people than dumb people, its why elite do their best to rise to the top, they know what happens when you don't.

MIT Institute's Gloomy Prediction: 'Global Economic Collapse' By 2030

gottspeed Re:WAY TO GO, MIT! (816 comments)

HA! Bring on the apocalypse. As long as most of humanity goes with me, I don't mind dying. I'm getting aggravated watching the obese coke chugging TV watching normalcy biased armchair partisans destroy hundreds of thousands of years of human evolution. If Q from Next Generation was here, he'd say "So long, its been good". Unless someone gets off their ass and organizes some kind of... Change... We're fucked. The sooner the better I say. I'm stocking up on popcorn.

Canadian Police Recommend Online Spying Tax For Internet Bills

gottspeed Re: who will pay? (110 comments)

Out government equals products and services offered at the barrel of a gun. They have a monopoly on it too, I can't think of very many monopolies where the price of service goes down and the quality goes up.

Sexually Rejected Flies Turn To Booze

gottspeed Re:WTF? (95 comments)

Actually shortly after its release the IEC put engineers world-wide into a race to decrease the life of the light-bulb. A product that lasts is a failure in business.

TVShack Creator's US Extradition Approved

gottspeed Re:Wow, what a crock (253 comments)

The reason this shit happens is that people themselves are sovereign at birth and they give it all up to the state to handle through citizenship. Investigate subrogation of rights.

TVShack Creator's US Extradition Approved

gottspeed Re:Why should it be otherwise? (253 comments)

As long as people register their biological property with the state upon birth they have no rights, just privileges afforded to them by the state. You get what you settle for.

Last Chance To Stop SOPA From Coming To Canada

gottspeed Re:Harper's in Office (86 comments)

You post AC because you're a cowardly boot-licking fascist who makes short term conclusions at the expense of your children's freedom and happiness. Read less news papers and do some fucking thinking.

Man Barred From Being Alone With Daughter After Informing Police of Porn On PC

gottspeed Re:Bottom line: never cooperate with the authoriti (777 comments)

People are taught from kindergarten to put themselves in dishonour in the midst of a verbal transaction, so when people run across a cop who initiates a binding commercial transaction, they will invariably put themselves in dishonour with grave consequences. Its the words you choose, not weather you speak or not. Protip: The government has IP rights to your first and last name used together. (Remember that form your mom filled out? Probably not... ;) Saying that the title is 'you' creates a controversy, and makes you the loser by default. Its not that government hates us, its that were collectively so wilfully ignorant that we don't deserve to be respected. Stop acting like property! Duh...

FCC Inquires Into Its Own Authority To Regulate Communication Service Shutdowns

gottspeed And so it has come to this (112 comments)

Its unfortunate that as our continent slides deeper and deeper into a fascist wet dream we feel satisfied quibbling over minutia on the internet. I love this forum, some of the most engaging and thought provoking conversations take place here, but I feel like it might be time for the smart people to organize something in meat space. In terms of systems theory, we have the energy and venue, but they have a stranglehold on communication. For this race to survive we need some big sacrifices.

Damaged US Passport Chip Strands Travelers

gottspeed Re:Bad summary: the airline, not the government (624 comments)

True. One cannot be lawfully restricted from entering or leaving their own country, unless they relinquish all their human rights in exchange for civil ones by claiming citizenship. Its too bad we live in a society of children who fail to recognize who and what they really are. I get a certain amount of satisfaction watching people bicker the symantecs.

Damaged US Passport Chip Strands Travelers

gottspeed Re:Bad summary: the airline, not the government (624 comments)

Still asking to take cookies from the jar hey? Why do grown adults ask permission to engage in lawful activities? A licence gives permission to act in a way that would otherwise be unlawful. Your asking permission gives the license force of law. You are an intellectual child in other words, so you get what's coming to you. Today's wars are fought in the mind, and too many of us are unwitting casualties.

Ask Slashdot: Tech Manufacturers With Better Labor Practices?

gottspeed Re:Really? (375 comments)

We? You got worms or something? I for one consider myself to be equally if not more exploited even if my servitude has better material fixtures. This crap isn't my fault or yours, we can't vote these inhumane practises away even if we wanted to, and its going to get worse before it gets better.

If You're Fat, Broke, and Smoking, Blame Language

gottspeed This will bake your noodle (297 comments)

How many people think in pure emotion and logic? Most people think in terms of language, and in that way language is in itself a prison for the mind.
