Have Your Fingerprints Read From 6 Meters Away

icongorilla Re:not a good thing (122 comments)

You're one of those people who when someone is terrorized by the police into confessing to a crime they didn't commit and blame the innocent person for what happened. You do realize people have all sorts of emotional backgrounds, right? What is wrong with you people!?

Have Your Fingerprints Read From 6 Meters Away

icongorilla Re:not a good thing (122 comments)

I did try calling a lawyer and none wanted to take a homeless persons case. You shits are all the same. So where should I go to next? How should I pay for a laywer ping homeless? When my leg snapps in half how should I pay it?

You shits disgust me. Not everyone is ready to handle being threatened. Go and torture some children and make yourself feel better.

Have Your Fingerprints Read From 6 Meters Away

icongorilla Re:not a good thing (122 comments)

Thank you. I had been in a state of depression since college. Because of how I was brought up, I always have shied away from agressive people. Like a dock that has been kicked never recovers. Afterwards, I was working at target and was barely making. enough money to survive. I am just getting out of homelessness now. I know. IT'S ALL MY FAULT FOR NOT KNOWING MY RIGHTS.

I'm sorry, but the government gave free reighn to the student loan collectors. You pomposs asses are what is wrong with the legal system. The reason why pleading guilty is sometimes better than trying to plead innocence regardless of the truth.

I will be hanging myself at some point. This shit isn't worth it. Why don't you go and threaten some local children and cripples and make yourself feel better?

Have Your Fingerprints Read From 6 Meters Away

icongorilla Re:not a good thing (122 comments)

I have tried to talk to a collection agency and they only threatened me. That is why I will be hanging myself. the FUCKS ARE NOT SENDING ME HOMELESS AGAIN. THE FUCK ARE NOT PURPROSFULLY INJURING ME AGAIN.

We have a system set up to catch the young into school loans before they know what they are getting into. I should have known better being a worthless legless shit. But that is what the collection agency was there to tell me. To also threaten me into work where I permaniently injured my hand on top of it.

I think the best thing I can do for socoety now is to hang myself in from on a high school with a note to warn the children of things before they get into it with a note on my chest. The plan is to do that when my current artificial leg snaps in half since I have no money to fix it and the collectors took away my medicaid.

Have Your Fingerprints Read From 6 Meters Away

icongorilla It is a good thing (122 comments)

It is a good thing. Right now we only have partial anonimity. I'm going to be threatened for the rest of my life for being a gimp and having problems with work. I have talked with the collectors and they do not help. In fact they ignore you and hide until you threaten legal action.

I lost my leg to cancer when I was 12. I had to stop school because of issues with my fake leg interfering with my concentration as well as making friends. But by then it was already too late.

I don't get any anonymity. In fact, when I hang myself from the threats, they are going to act like they had no clue what happnened. They already sent my homeless once. They took my medicaid away. They took my leg away. They want me to hang myself. With no way to fix my prostetic leg and no one wanting to take "responsibility" because of their bill collecting anonymity, it is obvious this is the end that the system wants.

Universities Hold Transcripts Hostage Over Loans

icongorilla Re:I am Zachary Dovel (541 comments)

It's the threats. I have new work again now. If I have to stop it though like I had to stop school, I don't want to hear the threats again. I'm just tired of being in pain, being threatened for being disabled and not working harder, and not being able to do anything about it. It is no different than water torture. I have no plans to go on SSI. I have no plans to become a begger.

There is my on responsibility and there is their responsibility. They push too hard it falls on their own responsibility for what happens. They know I'm handicapped, but don't care.

Universities Hold Transcripts Hostage Over Loans

icongorilla Once you have been in pain for so long (541 comments)

things like life and death just stop mattering anymore. I'm tired of being threatened when I can't even walk outside. It's just time. I need to hang myself so they can tell something is wrong. I don't want to be in pain anymore.

They are going to be able to repo my life.

Universities Hold Transcripts Hostage Over Loans

icongorilla Re:Loans - you're supposed to pay them back (541 comments)

I'm hanging myself in front of one of my student loan student loan agencies. I want you there to take the pictures for me here in Seattle. This in the perfect end for a worthless gimp.

Universities Hold Transcripts Hostage Over Loans

icongorilla Re:I am Zachary Dovel (541 comments)

If anyone is in Seattle, they can take pictures after the event and perhaps mail it out.

Maybe cheer me on. Being in pain isn't worth it. I can't go out. I can't have fun. I don't use a phone because I get threats from them. I can't afford a new prostetic when this one breaks. It is all dead end.

I feel like i am 60 when I am 28. I don't want this anymore. I've tried so hard for so long.

Universities Hold Transcripts Hostage Over Loans

icongorilla I am Zachary Dovel (541 comments)

I lost my leg to cancer when I was 12. Because of the pain from walking, I was forced to stop going to school before I could graduate. I tried to make it on my own working at target. But the loans people kept calling until:

  • They upped my hours so I lost my medicaid
  • My leg broke from the added stress
  • Forced me to stand on it for so long and bike to work that I was breaking from the mental stress of the pain again like I was at school.
  • I crushed my hand in my leg so now I have nerve damage in my hand because I was forced to bike to work when I shouldn't have been.

I know the only thing I have to look forward to life is this continuing pain and having the student loans people call me telling me I'm useless. I can't even do minimium wage work.

I've been mailing all of the local papers and handing out the paperwork. When I do hang myself, they can't say they didn't know why. They can't say they didn't expect it. As a cripple with no other choices in this world, this is the last thing that I can give back to humanity.

There is no hiding. I am Zachary Dovel, and I hope to be remembered for the good and not the bad. I just need to hang myself before they force me homeless again. Like almost everyone else in this world, the student loans companies want all of the money without any of the responsibility.

Osama Bin Laden Didn't Encrypt His Files

icongorilla People who use encryption are terrorists (333 comments)

So I am not sure what that makes Osama Bin Laden, but I am sure we can twist it someway to make ourselves feel fuzzy inside. I can't say that the US encryption export restrictions really made a difference in this case.

US Puts Tariff On Chinese Solar Panels

icongorilla Re:Let me see if I get this straight (311 comments)

I think hanging myself is probably the best way that I can help people and show that there is something wrong. There is more honor in that than just falling into the homeless system (which probably isn't going to last anyway.) There is something romantic about dieing for a cause when you have nothing left.

US Puts Tariff On Chinese Solar Panels

icongorilla Re:Let me see if I get this straight (311 comments)

That's about right. I had to drop out of college due to some health problems. I had an artificial leg that started te hurt so much that it was causing mental problems for me concentrating. I wouldn't ever go out to have fun because of it either.

After 6 years I have my first chance at a stable job. I don't ask for help much, but those loans are threatening me from even starting work.

I don't have the money for a new leg. I'm on crutches. I crushed my hand in my crutches so I have lost some of the function in 3/5 fingers. The crutches just make it worse. Hopefully I don't get carpel tunnel walking 6 miles a day.

I've taken a few handouts as far as good and shelter. I was sleeping outside for 2 months. But I have no plans to go onto SSI even though I could probably get it. If my student loans fuck me over starting this job, the plan is to hang myself at the student loan org.

I've set up the paperwork so no one can claim they didn't know. I'm tired of the government jamming things I don't need and/or are actively detrimental into my face while ignoring what I do need.

Michael Bay To Remake TMNT As Aliens

icongorilla Re:Who else was hoping for a Batman style rebirth? (481 comments)

Don't really remember 3. But it is interesting looking back and noticing how with each movie the costumes progressively got cheaper and cheaper. ... and then there are the costumes for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Coming Out of Their Shells Tour which are in a league of their own.

Michael Bay To Remake TMNT As Aliens

icongorilla Who else was hoping for a Batman style rebirth? (481 comments)

I have a feeling my feelings about this movie will be similar to TMNT2 vs TMNT1. TMNT1 sucked if you were too little. TMNT2 sucked if you were too old. As you grow up, the one you like better switches. This movie will be a TMNT2....

GNOME 3.4 Preview

icongorilla Re:Think Different (144 comments)

For saying that Gnome 3 is one-of-a-kind on a Gnome 3.4 Preview news story I get marked flamebait and offtopic? REALLY? My instincts say that the moderators decided to only read my last sentence and ignore the content of my writing. :-/

The Vortex Gun Coming Soon To a Protest Near You

icongorilla Re:free speech (295 comments)

There is a lot of truth to this "not having a choice" thing.

I ran away from home in NY about 6 months ago. I was working at Target for about $7.25 an hour with an artificial leg. Things weren't going too horribly for having to run around a store that huge being handicaped.

Then the loan sharks started coming. The kept calling the company until they started upping my hours. I was biking into work 7 miles each way because I didn't have that much money.

The extra load started causing mechanical problems with my fake leg and because of the extra hours, I lost my health medicaid health insurance because I was making too much money to keep the insurrance, but too little to pay for leg repairs, a car, and loans at the same time.

So I left for Washington to hang myself at Nela (the student loan organization.)

Over time and talking with people, I decided to give things another try because I do have a computer technical background. Casher again isn't an option since my leg is now cracking in half with no way to fix it.

It looks like I may be getting a NOC Engineer job this week. Unfortunately, walknig 4-6 miles a day on crutches is making my fingers go numb on my left hand.

I called the student loan organization not too long ago. If this doesn't work out because I can't type anymore, I will be hanging myself there. Because there isn't any other choice. That is what our current government is about.

GNOME 3.4 Preview

icongorilla Re:Think Different (144 comments)

I know I can download this or that tweak to make GNOME 3 behave like GNOME 2, but I'm interested in hearing arguments about how exactly these interface changes have improved the way you work over the old style.

And what do you gain by having all of the desktops functioning exactly the same? This is the first desktop on Linux that actually uses the application paragrim at its base. You're going to have to pry it from my cold dead hands since ther is NOTHING else similar to switch to. At least you can always go to XFCE or KDE or something else similar.

Your words are hollow.

German Appeals Court Confirms Galaxy Tab 10.1 Ban

icongorilla Re:Galaxy Tab = better than IPad 2 (161 comments)

Let's say you create a device. You send the blueprints to a manufacturer and soon start selling a "new segment" product. Lets say the company that was manufacturing your device decides to get in on the action since they see how well you're doing. They know what it will take... they have your blueprint after all.

Would you be upset if you were the designer of the device and manufacturer started putting out something a bit "too" similar to your product? Do you truly believe no further inspection is really necessary?

It's the same vat of hot water as a tech employee jumping between competing companies.

Iwata Confirms Nintendo Network, New Wii U Controller Functions

icongorilla Re:Nintendo.. (111 comments)

For a console that crashed and burned, it sure is following the same standard patterns of a normal 5-year Nintendo console lifecycle. I'm pretty sure they were still much more profitable this generation than the GameCube generation even including this years sales.

I found the trick with Wii games was to go into them with an open mind and try not set too many expectations. You'll enjoy them a lot more that way. There is a distinct culture difference in Wii games that just flies over the heads of many people. (Example: Nintendo games tend to read like a book. They don't do voiced dialog. That is not necessarily a minus even though people like to pretend it is.)

We are seeing a lot of paragrim shifts in software from the tablet interfaces appearing in projects such as Gnome 3 and the motion controls appearing in the Wii or Kinect. The holdouts will only move forward kicking and screaming.
