Gamers Abandoning DS, PSP In Favor of Smartphones
He doesn't need a phone, he needs a DS.
Why the hell does he need a DS? What happens if he doesn't get it?
British MP Calls For Pornography 'Opt-In'
So how did they get elected? Who's more retarded, the person in office, or the thousands who voted for them?
By saying MPs are retarded, you're basically saying that democracy sucks as a way of appointing people in government.
Anti-Smartphone Phone Launched For Technophobes
SMSes aren't cheap (well, when you start sending out millions of them, at least).
Well, they're practically free for the network providers.I get about 4 or 5 SMS spams per week from mine.
Predicting Election Results With Google
Marijuana and gays are harmless, already here, and are actually useful in many ways.
In what ways are gays useful?
Android Fork Brings Froyo To 12 Smartphones
I don't know about GPS access, but internet is often required in order to serve adds for app-supported apps. I can't imagine Google allowing users to block the internet access right. It would break their business model.
Gamers Beat Algorithms At Finding Protein Structures
I think our main advantage is our ability to break rules. A computer will follow whatever rules we give it. For example, from the summary,
Those sorts of extensive rearrangements were beyond Rosetta's abilities, since the energy changes involved in the transitions are so large.
A human, on the other hand, can just say, "To hell with the energy, I'll just do it anyway."
Parasite Correlated With World Cup Success
The thing is, in American football (and rugby), the ball is mainly held by the hands rather than kicked. So why do these people insist on calling the game 'football'?
Khan Academy Delivers 100,000 Lectures Daily
Check again. Jewish is an ethnicity.
Neutrino Data Could Spell Trouble For Relativity
I had beef bacon for breakfast last week.
Australia Gets Its First Female Prime Minister
Basically I hate the way democratic politics works, it's crap. And I hate stupid people. Stupid people shouldn't have this much influence.
I agree. Think about how stupid the average person is, and realise that 50% of people are stupider than that. And these people are making decisions on who should run the country. It's ridiculous. I prefer despotism.
Geologists Might Be Charged For Not Predicting Quake
The goal of science is to find elegant truths (scientific theories) about the universe, and trying to find a way to link these elegant truths into a single profound truth encompassing an entire field of study.
Newtonian physics is an elegant truth, Einsteinian physics is a more elegant truth that explains Newtonian Physics, and Unified Field Theory is the single profound truth in the field of physics, explaining both Newtonian and Einsteinian physics, that we're hoping to build up to.
I disagree. Science are merely descriptions of the universe, it's not the truth. Newtonian Physics describe a certain aspect of the universe. So does Einsteinian Physics etc. Scientists make up theories based on what they observed, and in principle is no different from someone saying, "Roses are red and violets are blue.". "Red" and "blue" are not truths, they're just a subset of the properties of roses and violets.
Digitally Filtering Out the Drone of the World Cup
I believe the GP is alluding to the fact that digit is another term for "fingers and toes".
Digital filter, get it?
Official Kanji Count Increasing Due To Electronics
I don't know about English or other languages, but here in Malaysia we have the Kamus Dewan' published by the government's Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka. It is the definitive dictionary of the Malaysian language, and any word that is not in there is not considered a bona fide Malaysian Malay word.
Bangladesh Blocks Facebook Over Muhammad Cartoons
Problem is that the war does not stop until all of the earth has been brought under the rule of Islam, according to the koran. So if you are going to quote it, quote it all.
Where in the Quran does it say that?
And the marmaduke pickthall translation is better than the yusef ali translation.
Here's the Pickthall translation of 47:4
"Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance). And if Allah willed He could have punished them (without you) but (thus it is ordained) that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He rendereth not their actions vain."
How is this better than the Yusuf Ali one? If anything, it makes it clearer that we kill disbelievers only when we meet them in battle.
What Scientists Really Think About Religion
I suppose you expect that I can fit the evidence to the existence of God into one Slashdot comment box? How small-minded are you?
The answer's not 42!

Australian Schools To Teach Intelligent Design
Even without bacteria, germs, and viruses, human population is still growing at an exponential rate. Imagine if there aren't any diseases and all humans live until 150 years old. The earth would not be big enough for all of us.
It's all about balance.
Mobile Game Trojan Calls the South Pole
There's no screw up at the application level. The trojan app is doing what it's designed to do, which is screw the users out of their money. It should be up to the OS to ensure that the user is protected from said app.
Mobile Game Trojan Calls the South Pole
We're talking about Windows Mobile, not Windows 7/Vista.
