The Mathematics of 'Legitimate Rape' and Pregnancy

kakyoin01 Demetri Martin analogy (1469 comments)

This reminds me of a Demetri Martin joke. I believe it was on the Large Pad sequence.

There's a saying that goes "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones." Okay. How about "Nobody should throw stones"? That's crappy behavior. My policy is: "No stone throwing regardless of housing situation."

Seriously, if you don't know anything, just shut up and refuse to comment further. How hard can it be? And how much are these blokes making to say things like this?

Ask Slashdot: Open Source Software To Manage Student Grades?

kakyoin01 Re:Moodle. (120 comments)

Agreed, Moodle is pretty nice and customizable from what I've seen, although there are indeed some rough edges still. Our university recently switched from Blackboard to Moodle and it seems to have worked out just fine and dandy.

Britain Bringing Out 'Sonic Gun' For Olympics Security

kakyoin01 Sonic Gun? (193 comments)

I guess they're trying to prevent the outbreak of that ridiculous Olympic Games series featuring a certain blue hedgehog.

Jokes aside, this is a good bit paranoid. At a certain point comes "too cautious" and this has probably reached that point. The balance of enjoyment vs safety is not safe in a world, nay, a country that has more countermeasures for a worldwide event than you can shake a stick at. Oh wait, they took my stick too. Darn it!

Your Privacy Is a Sci-Fi Fantasy

kakyoin01 John Mayer approved (195 comments)

Instantly thought of "Your Body is a Wonderland" with that title.

On a more relevant note, it's very apparent nowadays that privacy is becoming less and less of a guarantee and more of a perk in society today. I somewhat agree and disagree with this personal data trend. On the one hand, I'd like to think that this means people will be more willing to be themselves and be more honest and open with others (e.g., based on experience, we in America hardly even associate with our next-door neighbors). I personally would love to not have to be so cryptic and secretive about my information. However, on the other hand and being the cynic I am, I know this is only going to lead to even bigger identity and privacy problems.

Still, asking for a Facebook username and password is tantamount to invasion of privacy. If companies want to check someone's Facebook, there are plenty of options for allowing others to look at a specific profile without the need of a password or even a username. Digital personal information is still personal information, and this sounds like a "good vs service" kind of problem. Something tells me that this is only the beginning...

Ask Slashdot: Which Multiple Desktop Tool For Windows 7?

kakyoin01 VirtuaWin works (359 comments)

I have used VirtuaWin for some time now. It's relatively easy to set up, and I have seen no performance issues with my Windows 7 partition while it's running. It works for me, maybe it could work just as well for others.

Voting System Test Hack Elects Futurama's Bender To School Board

kakyoin01 Re:Bender would be great for head of the school bo (210 comments)

Although I must add, it was actually quite clever. Maybe your definition of "Funny" should be "Humorously entertaining to read, but most likely groan- or facepalm-inducing".

Or possibly Groening. Not precisely clear on that.

This being a perfect example of "Funny". I gol'd (groaned out loud).

Job Seeking Hacker Gets 30 Months In Prison

kakyoin01 Title vs summary (271 comments)

The title and summary seem to convey different things. "Job Seeking Hacker Gets 30 Months In Prison" sounds like a hacker was trying to get a hacking job somewhere, while the summary makes it clear that he hacked his way into getting said job. Just saying.

Nonetheless, blackmail is blackmail. Malicious hacking involving the exposure of private data to unwarranted eyes ought to be punished.

kakyoin01 Bell Curve (170 comments)

Interesting bell curve so far, with the results. Not entirely sure what it means. I guess we need more participants to...chime in.

"YEAAAAAAAAHH" is most effective when said by someone else. Besides, laughing at my own joke? Where do you think we are, a place full of highly opinionated, egotistical cads?

Could it be that the previous Paypal article about the smashed-up violin and this one are in some way related?

Perhaps...some strings were pulled.

Microsoft Reveals More Windows 8 Details

kakyoin01 Huh? (538 comments)

This has got to be the most stupid thing Microsoft has done since they launched the Kin.

The what? I've never even heard of the Kin until now. Can I reward you for providing information on this splendidly hip device by paying you in bitcoins?
