hardburlyboogerman Re:Douchebags! (169 comments)

Not bad enough that Windows 8 (a Turd) and Windows 8.1 (A highly polished Turd) doesn't work right on an average desktop,now ads with search ON THE DESKTOP? Micro$oft needs a punishing backlash for this type of crap.
Need any more reason to migrate to Linux? I don't

Bandages That Can Turn Off Genes Encourages Wound Healing

hardburlyboogerman Re:That would be a Godsend (54 comments)

I got diabetes after getting sucker punched by a psych patient who I stopped from killing a nurse.Thanks to that Jackass,I have no pancreas to make insulin.If it isa any consolation,he got himself killed not a month later.At least I'm still alive.

On handedness: I am ...

hardburlyboogerman Re:Mixed-handedness (260 comments)

I trained as a sniper long ago.I can shoot equally well either way.I can put a bullet where I want is up to a mile range without a scope.Any longer range using a scope,I'm definitely right handed.
I learned how to write left handed when I was in the first grade after my right hand was crushed by a home delivery milk truck in the early 1960s.Took forever to heal and I've kept it up.Drives the banks crazy because I sign the checks I write with either hand.Love messing with their heads.
My late Mother was left handed but was retrained to write right handed.My sister Terry is definitely a lefty.
Handedness may be hard wired but can be modified.I'm a prime example.

hardburlyboogerman Re:Mixed-handedness (260 comments)

Same Here.I write right handed but learned to drive left handed.Might be where I learned to drive on an old 1964 Ford Pickup with 3 on the Tree(3 Speed Column shift - Remember those?)When hardware hacking and typing,I use both hands equally well.Go Figure

hardburlyboogerman Re:As Wil Wheaton says ... "don't be a dick". (292 comments)

Yea,but when the client was a pure asshole about the replacement to begin with,I have NO sympathy.BTW he is long out of business now and serving 5-10 for attempted robbery.

Ask Slashdot: How To (or How NOT To) Train Your Job Replacement?

hardburlyboogerman Re:The Dilbert Way (292 comments)

LOL! I've actually had this happen.Guess what.The replacement turned out to be so incompetent that the client lost his ass.Then he wanted me to come back and try to repair the damage the replacement had done.By then,I had moved on to another job that paid much better.Told him"you made your bed,sleep in it"

When Was the Last Time You Used a Landline Phone?

hardburlyboogerman Cell Phones don't work here (329 comments)

At my home in Southeastern Ky.The carriers don't give a damn whether there is coverage or not,as long as they get their money.AT&T is the worst.I have a throw away phone for use when I can travel.Besides that,cell phones are about as useful as tits on a boar hog.

Gerry Anderson, Co-Creator of Thunderbirds, Dies

hardburlyboogerman Re:My heart is still a fireball (129 comments)

I remember Thunderbirds and loved it.Tickled me when a Movie based on the series was made.I have the entire Thunderbirds,UFO and Space 1999 series here at home,so I can watch them any time I want.They may be dated now,but still much better than the pig crap that passes for Sci-fi now days.
One favorite thing I liked on Space 1999 was the character Victor Bergman sniping to David Kano over the main computer.Kano was so protective about the machine.That reminds me of Dr.McCoy and Spock with their(friendly) war of words.
When I first seen any of these,they were being syndicated on various stations.Iffy at best as where I live,(SE KY) Sci-fi is not very popular here due to the lack of thinking brains .Sorry folks but NASCAR where you drive in a circle making left turns while being at least half drunk isn't my idea of TV entertainment.I have better things to do.

Gerry Anderson, Co-Creator of Thunderbirds, Dies

hardburlyboogerman Re:Space: 1999 was awesome. (129 comments)

You're right on that,but the black hole was not the focus of the episode,but accidental time travel was.Black Sun also depicted what is called spagettification on objects falling into the hole.An asteroid and an Eagle were ripped apart by tidal forces.Turns out that this was correct,according to what we know now.It wasn't until the early 1990s that Black Holes were proven to even exist.That's when Stephen Hawking conceded his famous bet with Kip Thorne over black holes.
I wonder if Thorne enjoyed the year of Penthouse he got for winning that bet.

hardburlyboogerman Re:Space: 1999 was awesome. (129 comments)

My favorite episode was called "Black Sun" I do believe that was the first use of a Black Hole in any TV Sci-fi series up to then.I know taht after Season 2,the Alphans were left hanging.Not until 2004 when the fan flick"Return To Moonbase Alpha" was the series really concluded
