Obama's Immigration Order To Give Tech Industry Some, Leave 'Em Wanting More

Jeff Flanagan Re:I bet Infosys and Tata are dancing in the stree (179 comments)

>Obama's actions are appaling and well on the way to destroying the country...

Do you ever wonder if your lack of critical thinking skills has led you to internalize Republican nonsense?

Obama's Immigration Order To Give Tech Industry Some, Leave 'Em Wanting More

Jeff Flanagan Re:I bet Infosys and Tata are dancing in the stree (179 comments)

>Sadly, you are right. And, given his dislike for America, he'll have two years to turn her into a 3rd-world country.
That's extremely stupid even for a Republican.

>Our only hope is that, being an incompetent nincompoop
Yes, wingnuts actually believe this. Your posts only serve to announce that you lacked the critical thinking skills to see through wingnut derp, and instead internalized every absurd belief that far-right media propagandized you with. It's pathetic.

CERN Releases LHC Data

Jeff Flanagan Re:Nuclear weapons? (41 comments)

It's because your posting history and bizarre sig indicate that you're a terrified wingnut. When someone's personality is the problem as much as their ignorance, just giving an answer isn't as helpful to their potential development into a rational person as mockery is. Something has to get you back on track.

Harvard Scientists Say It's Time To Start Thinking About Engineering the Climate

I can't tell whether you're joking, or totally delusional.

Harvard Scientists Say It's Time To Start Thinking About Engineering the Climate

Jeff Flanagan Re:We've been doing it for a long time (331 comments)

>On a side note, can you imagine the United Nations agreeing to a planetary geoengineering plan? I can't.

Definitely, once the problem is obvious to even the derpiest right-wingers. When the people propagandized into driving civilization off a cliff feel the impact of climate change themselves, they'll actually acknowledge the problem, and may do something about it. It's just too abstract right now for less intelligent people to respond to it.

Harvard Scientists Say It's Time To Start Thinking About Engineering the Climate

Jeff Flanagan Re:Global warming is bunk anyway. (331 comments)

He can't. SpecialKendall has internalized a massive amount of wingnut propaganda. He doesn't even live in the same universe as reality-based people anymore. It's sad.

Ask Slashdot: What's the Most Hackable Car?

Jeff Flanagan Re:Community is just as important as car (187 comments)

Of course holding it up already rolls the window up, but if the person asking the question wants to do something stupid and have the windows roll up with a single touch, that could be implemented without replacing the window regulator. You'd just have to hack together some electronics the latch the circuit in the roll-up position until the current being drawn spikes indicating that it's rolled all the way up.

Martin Jetpack Closer To Takeoff In First Responder Applications

Jeff Flanagan Re:Disruptive If We Say So Ourselves (53 comments)

>I don’t think the 60’s jetpack dream will ever be truly realized.

I'm surprised to find the concept dates back to the 20s, although I had never seen one until viewing media from the mid-60s.

Three-Way Comparison Shows PCs Slaying Consoles In Dragon Age Inquisition

Jeff Flanagan Re:Duh (222 comments)

Sounds like you quit PCs over 10 years ago. I need to upgrade every 4 years or so to keep up with the latest games, spending ~$500, and they look much better than console games. If you already have a fast PC, a good GPU is far more useful than a console.

Republicans Block Latest Attempt At Curbing NSA Power

Jeff Flanagan Re:So basically (428 comments)

>Libertarianism is just Big Government renamed to Big Government Inc., with less accountability to the people.

This is why most of us grow out of our Libertarian phase by our mid-20s.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Update Performance Explored

Jeff Flanagan Re:irrelevant (57 comments)

>Shooters and every other type of game ever made needs a mouse.

No they don't, unless by "Shooters and every other type of game ever made" you just mean Peggle. You're locked into a tiny worldview, and completely fail to see that many other people do not share your narrow preferences. This is far from the first time that you've demonstrated your own limits in your posts.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Update Performance Explored

Jeff Flanagan Re:Enough already (57 comments)

Regular users get confused by these dumbed down interfaces too, because functionality is hidden and not easily discoverable. Hiding functionality helps no one.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Update Performance Explored

Jeff Flanagan Re:irrelevant (57 comments)

>PC gamers hate joysticks. Mice, better performance, and mods are the only reason that PC gamers play PC games.

Why would you say something that's obviously not true except for a subset of PC gamers as if it's a fact? Not all PC gamers are at desks in bedrooms at their parent's house. Some of us PC game from our own couches with XBox 360 controllers. We do it for the much improved graphics and better performance than console games.

Window Washing a Skyscraper Is Beyond a Robot's Reach

Jeff Flanagan Re:Question (203 comments)

I worked at the Sears tower many years ago, and we had machines that cleaned the outside of the building, so it definitely can be done.

How YouTube Music Key Will Redefine What We Consider Music

Jeff Flanagan Re:Sweet, wait, huh? (105 comments)

Probably because Pandora is less expensive. Spotify is much better, which is why I switched, but someone with a very limited income might prefer to spend $5 less on Pandora.

U.S. and China Make Landmark Climate Deal

Jeff Flanagan Re:Ya...Right (285 comments)

> And when Obama is for everything that is shit
This is a wingnut belief, not reality.

>then it's good to be against everything he is for.
This is how the wingnut Republicans actually operate. They have the minds of spoiled children.

New NXP SoC Gives Android Its Apple Pay

Jeff Flanagan Re:SoC? (122 comments)

It wouldn't be necessary to define something as obvious as SoC on a technical blog, but I suppose that's not what /. is anymore, so maybe you're right that they need to dumb it down more for the new audience.

Blizzard Announces Overwatch, a First-Person Shooter

Jeff Flanagan Re:Let's not overlook the real problem here (183 comments)

>Your entertainment should serve you, not the other way around.

You're not talking about personal entertainment, you're talking about hanging out with your friends. It's never been possible to DVR friendship so you can hang out on your own schedule instead of everyone's. You're just not making sense.

Why Scientists Think Completely Unclassifiable and Undiscovered Life Forms Exist

Jeff Flanagan Re:Discover life? (221 comments)

You were entirely wrong, and have a wingnut sig, so I'm not surprised you failed to learn and kept arguing instead. Give it up. You live an alternate reality where you redefine everything to mean what you want it to mean, so you're never going to make any sense to the reality-based community.

And movement, so mi is 3-times wrong. Plants may not get up and walk around like Triffids, but they do move toward light.
