Google Announces Inbox, a New Take On Email Organization

jason.sweet Sigh! (162 comments)

Please don't tell me you are one of those MORONS who relies on software for real-time instructions

Since this is slashdot, I shouldn't have to remind you of the things in the modern world that depends on real-time instructions from software. But I will say this: If software running on 1960's technology could get humans to the moon and back, it is not unreasonable for me to expect my phone to tell me how to get to ikea.

If God had intended chickens to live out a natural life-span, he would not have invented so many tasty recipes with them as the main ingredient.

Texas Ebola Patient Dies

jason.sweet Re:The Conservative Option (487 comments)

In the US, more poeple have died of gunshot wounds in the last month than have died from Ebola since it was discovered. Let's not talk about rational, effective responses from conservatives.

You mistook dismissal for whining and indifference for ignorance. Your comprehension of the English language is fleeting.

An Accidental Wikipedia Hoax

jason.sweet Re:In the olden days... (189 comments)

Why do so many people misspell and mispronounce that?

The better question is "Why do you care?" I submit a "get off my lawn" rant without proofreading, and the best you can do is criticize my spelling of the name of a crappy burger joint. Your internet-foo is weak.
As far as I'm concerned, MacDonalds is the one who doesn't know how to spell MacDonalds.

An Accidental Wikipedia Hoax

jason.sweet In the olden days... (189 comments)

In the olden days, as my children like to call them, we learned that you only use an encyclopedia. For those too young to remember, and encyclopedia is a set of articles about stuff, like Wikipedia. It came in a large set of books. It was edited by a much smaller, and, we assume, more educated set of people than Wikipedia. But even so, we recognized that a small summary article could not sufficiently convey the complexity and nuances of the subjects we were eager to study. We also understood, that such a large volume of knowledge was likely to contain oversimplification and plain errors. That is why the articles included a bibliography of sources, so we could find those books and expand our knowledge more completely and accurately. Somewhere along the line, we grew lazy. We got used to the instant gratification of the internet. Somewhere along the line we decided it was too much trouble to GET OUR HEAD OUT OF OUR ASSES AND READ A FUCKING BOOK.
Sorry
This isn't about Wikipedia being unreliable. It's about authors being unreliable. Check your fucking sources, or get a job at MacDonalds.

(HTML5-based because no one else is writing programs for your custom OS).

Figures! Skynet is written in fucking JavaScript. The whole world is going to hell in a handbasket, and Brendan fucking Eich is still sitting there shrugging and making excuses about the schedule he was on.

Thieves Who Stole Cobalt-60 Will Soon Be Dead

jason.sweet Re:They will, without a doubt, die... (923 comments)

Film continuity doesn't apply to the real continuity.

Do you mean the real continuity described in the excellent historical references published by Marvel Comics?
