Mental Illness Reduces Lifespan As Much as Smoking

jtrainor so true :| (192 comments)

I can nail this one: Mentally ill people generally don't take good care of themselves. They tend to eat worse and more irregularly, sleep odd hours, and not get to the doctor as much (for whatever reason), especially if they live by themselves and no one's looking after them.

Basically, the severely mentally ill tend to make poor lifestyle choices a lot more.

Kernel Dev Tells Linus Torvalds To Stop Using Abusive Language

jtrainor hurf (1501 comments)

There's a difference between "not being professional" and "being a dick", and clearly good ol' Linus doesn't understand it. I don't wear a suit and a tie to go about my daily business, yet somehow I manage not to be an obnoxious git to people I disagree with.

If you act like a jerk, people are not going to pay attention to any arguments you have, they're going to remember you acting like a jerk.

Children's Watch Allows Parents To Track Their Kid

jtrainor whine whine whine think of the children (607 comments)

Do you know how many children are kidnapped in the US?

About 240.

Buying one of these stupid things isn't going to make your kid any safer, but it will teach him that you're an overprotective control freak.

CCP Speaks On Player-Elected Advisors For EVE Online

jtrainor Re:So who gets elected? (70 comments)

If you had actually read the post, instead of just the first line, you'd know it was a decent post, one that deserves the +3 insightful a lot more than yours. Don't drag your stupid drama from other games onto Slashdot.
