Microsoft Antitrust Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson Dead at 76

jurco Re:Ballmer... (193 comments)

Look at BillG showing off his chair skills

This reminds me of something the greatest Bill wrote: I had no spur / To prick the sides of my intent, but only / Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself / And falls on th'other.

jurco Biased much? (611 comments)

I'm not a fan of DRM either, but this "story" should have one of those "PAID ADVERTISEMENT" disclaimers.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Be Back As the Terminator

jurco Re:Much awaited.. (245 comments)

I'm hoping that they just do a reboot. Wipe everything clean, start with a brand new story, and get a real director (with a real name, not a nickname).

Why would you wipe one of the most well-known and coolest stories in the whole genre? That would just be asking for trouble. This isn't Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Judge Dredd or Total Recall - i.e. the source material is the movie. Wipe everything clean, and you might as well not even be making a Terminator movie. I hope I never see the day when the first two are remade. If you must "reboot", "reboot" bad movies that could/should have been good (Daredevil and Resident Evil come immediately to mind).

NSA WhistleBlower Outs Himself

jurco Re:Why do you joke about prison rape? (860 comments)

It's called "black humor".

The disparity between the percentage of black inmates in the U.S. prison population and the percentage of the overall black population is NOT funny.

Scientists Explain Why Chairman of House Committee On Science Is Wrong

jurco Re:-1 User gave me reality check (476 comments)

Or we could, you know, develop cleaner technologies so that we improve the quality of life without having to set fire to hydrocarbons in order to obtain our energy. Just saying...

Yes, exactly this. +100. We should have gone directly from beast-power to solar/wind/whatever's next. I don't understand why we had to mess around with fossil fuels in the interim. However, I am a complete fucking moron.
