How Patent Trolls Destroy Innovation

krashnburn200 Re: How the Patent System Destroys Innovation (96 comments)

Yes because your entire reason for existing is to suck as much life out of the universe as possible. Honestly I sound like I disagree but I don't I am just angry that the universe areally IS structured that way.

UPS Denies Helping the NSA 'Interdict' Packages

krashnburn200 Re:No need for UPS to help (207 comments)

It's called an address label, they go on the boxes.
The boxes going international go through customs on site at the UPS hubs.

The NSA could achieve this by accessing the packages at customs without alerting UPS directly.
The would only have to break out an NSL because we can. to make it less of a hassle, or just to flex muscle.
Really an NSL would be detrimental to secrecy, the NSA is clearly aware that secrets keep better when you
*don't tell anyone*
Rather than when you ask them to keep it on the down low.

Google Unveils Self-Driving Car With No Steering Wheel

krashnburn200 Re:So when will the taxi drivers start protesting? (583 comments)

These this will naturally become shuttles and taxi services almost immediately. Given the protests of Uber and Lyft, what will the outcry be for these?

Cabbies don't have enough money to have a voice that's heard, The people with the money will just watch until these are cheaper than cabbies and then implement.

The Man Behind Munich's Migration of 15,000 PCs From Windows To Linux

krashnburn200 Re:GNU/Linux (264 comments)

Linux is easier to say, and everyone already knows what I mean when when I say it,
even you,
even RMS,
or else you would not be telling everyone what we really mean is GNU/Linux.
It's here it works get used to it.

At the same time I also understand your frustration with the fast and loose nature of our language usage
Like so many things it's just human nature, you want to fix something help fix humans, after all someone is going to be releasing the first patches for the human genome soon,

I for one hope it's open source....

Controlling Fear By Modifying DNA

krashnburn200 Re:Democrats want you to fear Republicans! (105 comments)

I am sorry you entirely missed my point AC.

I responded specifically and directly to the only point raised about which I cared; the one I quoted.
You reply with more political nonsense.
Congratulations, you broke the rust of the old cogitator and fired it up to let 'logic' happen with regards to one very tiny piece of your life and then you rushed to shut it off again just as fast as you could... Congratulations again! Seriously you are now more rational then the majority of people on the planet.

You still look ridiculous when you deride others for being 1% more irrational than you.

Controlling Fear By Modifying DNA

krashnburn200 Re:Democrats want you to fear Republicans! (105 comments)

No one thinks it might be a good idea to unplug that cable from the back of your heads for a few minutes and let reason take over for a bit, and to see what comes from that?

Please; You have no room to talk. If you had actually dared to face reality rationally you would not be so worked up about such meaningless things. You are participating in inherently irrational behavior and crying foul because others are a teensy bit more irrational than you.

Absolutely, Just because someone asks for the "least inaccurate oversimplification" does not make it incumbent upon the person asked to join the asker in abandoning accuracy for convenience.

4 horsemen of the infocolypse trotted out in Snowden backlash backlash

krashnburn200 Glitch in the opinion generator (1 comments)

It looks like someone slipped in the "Tell the people what they think" dept. I doubt their replacement will take very long to remind the people what they really think.
