Will Speed Limits Inhibit Autonomous Car Adoption?

infochuck Idiots at the Keyboard (650 comments)

I can't decide who is dumber: the submitter, or the Slashdrone who accepted this story.

"Rich people don't like to go slow."

What? Says who? Since when? And others do? Data to support this claim?

No, instead, the submitter prefers to a) make a faulty and ludicrous assumption; b) pose a question that follows from the faulty premise, backed by flawed logic; c) proceeds to answer own question with wild assumptions. Fuck the submitter, fuck "Soulskill", and fuck Slate.

Nukes Are "The Only Peacekeeping Weapons the World Has Ever Known," Says Waltz

infochuck Erroneous conclusions (707 comments)

So... in the past two thousand years, there has been a large amount of large wars between large states. But because there have been none in the last 60 years, a *whopping* three percent of that 2000-year period, we can congratulate ourselves on stopping war, all thanks to nukes? How about if we revisit this argument in another 2000 years? Maybe then I'll buy it.

Microsoft Certificate Was Used To Sign Flame Malware

infochuck New users only? (194 comments)

It's so strange that about the only posts one sees here anymore are from users with ID#s in the 40,xxx,xxx block.

Outages Leave Google Apps Admins In the Hotseat

infochuck *Yawn* (260 comments)

So what? The idiots got what they deserved. Anybody who thinks this is a good idea is a complete moron. "Gee, store all of my data at a remote location where any of a half-dozen places having an outage can keep me from my business? Where do I sign?"

Oh, the guy in the article beta-tested for nine months. Surely, if is doesn't go down in nine months, it'll be up forever without a hitch!
