joocemann Re:More proof (661 comments)

You're wrong. Let's all hope they vote its a hoax so that the earth will return to normal. These politicians are like gods, I tell you!

Pope Francis: There Are Limits To Freedom of Expression

joocemann Re:Turning the other cheek (873 comments)

No. Doing something doesn't mean you're fine with it. It may be an admission to being imperfect and emotional moreso than being fine with violence. You're jumping to conclusions way too fast and simply.

IEEE: New H-1B Bill Will "Help Destroy" US Tech Workforce

joocemann Re:It's a badly written article/summary (481 comments)

Those rubber stamps are ridiculous. China and India put out waves of certified idiots. What do you expect when you have a system where the majority of students cheat, and are permitted to do so? There are loads of articles on this topic because the tests and applications and such are so frequently cheated.

Pope Francis: There Are Limits To Freedom of Expression

joocemann Re:Turning the other cheek (873 comments)

He didn't say he's fine with it. You're not quoting him for a reason. He said that such response is what will likely happen -- he doesn't say he's fine with it.

Beware Headlines Saying Chocolate Is Good For You

joocemann Re:Still useful research (224 comments)

The thing is, we can already assume that most of the chocolate research will simply tell us that we eat too much of it and it is making us fat. People don't like inconvenient truths, as is found with AGW data. If your job is to basically find out the nitty gritty details about why people should stop doing something they like, you might not have a job for a long time.

You're Doing It All Wrong: Solar Panels Should Face West, Not South

joocemann Re:Technically, that isn't West (327 comments)

You're Doing It All Wrong! LOL. Overstatement of the week. All the article does is say maybe, kinda, sorta, not really. LOL

You're Doing It All Wrong: Solar Panels Should Face West, Not South

joocemann The article lacks substance! (327 comments)

This article is loaded with suppositions and guesses that don't really nail down any hard believable hypotheses or facts for a reader to take away. There is no takeaway message. I came away from this read having wasted my time. The whole article can be summed into a single line that could maybe be a popular tweet "For some people, maybe, angling solar panels westward might pick up energy when they need it most."

But the article is clickbait by the whole 'you're doing it all wrong' part that makes potential readers think there is some new big fact that will prove something worth learning. NOPE.

Lame article.

Supreme Court To Decide Whether Rap Lyric Threats Are Free Speech

joocemann Re:And this is how perverted our system has gotten (436 comments)

I agree. I don't see a problem with maintaining our rights and then busting murderers, rapists, thieves, etc, when they actually are caught doing the crime or afterward. We can't all be so scared about the possibility of bad things that we give up the great things we have (rights/freedoms). Are we seriously trying to move into thoughtcrime and massive nanny-state/big-brother living where we need the government to PREVENT anything bad from happening? Please... Life is too short, even when it goes well, to shut it all down in fear.

Ask Slashdot: Making a 'Wife Friendly' Gaming PC?

joocemann Re:Spare Room (720 comments)

It's not ok. As the guy who replied about fairness and communication said (and my original post implies), good relationships are mutual and require work. If you settle for less, that's on you. I'm miffed on behalf of other guys I know because of the point that you're making. As a man I don't get much of the feminine perspective of 'bad males', either --- much of this has to do with the fact that I absolutely avoid jerk men. The guys I surround myself with are all good upstanding people and so I only see or hear about asshats in public/internet.

Ask Slashdot: Making a 'Wife Friendly' Gaming PC?

joocemann Re:Spare Room (720 comments)

The point is that if you cannot work a successful career, and will be at home all day, you should have homemaking skills. This is a gender independent point. I've met many male homemakers.

Regarding the 'plenty of guys out there who are dicks'.... And so? I'm not talking about those guys, am I? Why bring in spurious arguments when what you're saying clearly doesn't have anything to do with what was originally said? SMH. Internet trolls.

Ask Slashdot: Making a 'Wife Friendly' Gaming PC?

joocemann Re:Spare Room (720 comments)

A lot of guys cower and don't demand fairness and communication in relationships. It's a way to feign the supposedly prized 'sensitivity' that was indoctrinated in the 80s/90s. They get walked all over and perpetuate a crappy expectation for the rest of us to work harder against. I'm married to a perfect woman, and so I don't have to deal with that crap any more. I feel bad for the rest of the guys I know who are facing potential spouses who offer nothing much more than being pretty in makeup. No degree, no homemaking skills, no work ethic, and no compromise. It's like they were raised to be princesses.

Yes, I know there are loads of women out there who aren't like this. And before you reply upset about this, just know that I am glad you exist and that I am not writing this about you at all.

Music Publishers Sue Cox Communications Over Piracy

joocemann Re:All of this is extralegal (187 comments)

Nah.. They have staff lawyers who are sitting around too much and were tasked with trying to extort more money. A lot of the litigious crap going on in the world comes from staff lawyers.

Alva Noe: Don't Worry About the Singularity, We Can't Even Copy an Amoeba

joocemann Re: writer doesn't get jeopardy, or much of anythi (455 comments)

Entropy exists within the materials of the superconductor by way of vibrations that happen above 0K. This is well known. The fact that you say "...your wonderful zero energy superconducting..." implies that you have no knowledge about this field of study whatsoever and think I'm making this up. I have no control over that. I can't force you to learn about something before refuting it ignorantly. I can't make you have a little trust in someone else's arguments such that you might actually make an effort of your own to find out. Superconductors have been studied and produced for over 20 years now and you're welcome to learn whenever you choose. scholar.google.com

Goodbye.

How is that relevant? Every time DNA is replicated, order is created. So what? The universe is very large. Please demonstrate relevance in these hazy terms you're throwing around.

Alva Noe: Don't Worry About the Singularity, We Can't Even Copy an Amoeba

joocemann Re:No it isn't that we won't (455 comments)

Given the way most communications on the internet requires brevity and incomplete information, you could pose similar shithead-style analyses of most people's posts. You've chosen to assume the worst where you're given the opportunity to assume anything or limit judgement. That's on you and its surely a poor form of existence. I wish you a better way of life.

Alva Noe: Don't Worry About the Singularity, We Can't Even Copy an Amoeba

joocemann Re:No it isn't that we won't (455 comments)

You can call me a moron if you take what I'm saying very simply and draw a lot of ridiculous assumptions about what I meant in that sentence. In brief, my planning involves looking at what is possible now, what is plausible in the immediate future (where most people focus on solving problems, but are competing with other smart people), and then what would be plausible if several currently plausible things come about. That next step out is what I'm betting on, but I hedge my bets broadly and intelligently and I constantly monitor the sciences that are important for my planning. So, in short, you don't know me.

Keith Olbermann and MSNBC Part Ways

joocemann joocemann writes  |  about 4 years ago

joocemann (1273720) writes "In a direct business sense, MSNBC is making for poor business by axing their most popular anchor Keith Olbermann. "Cable host Keith Olbermann and news channel MSNBC abruptly parted ways on Friday night, as the network announced that his contract had ended and the last installment of his show would air that evening." Many have speculated as to why MSNBC would make this move. I am curious if raising too many questions and not spewing the pro-corporate memes that the mainstream media is purposed for is what took Keith the same way as Lou Dobbs."

Slashdot Needs more 'positive post' word options.

joocemann joocemann writes  |  more than 5 years ago

joocemann writes "I love slashdot, and I really enjoy reading the intelligent posts — even those that I do not agree with. I think it might be nice to have a few other nice +1 words like "Beautiful" or "Poetic" or "Daring"... Something that might inspire a new range of response to meet those monikers.

What do you think would be a good other choice?"
