North Korea Denies Responsibility for Sony Attack, Warns Against Retaliation

kruach aum Re:Whether it was NK or not doesn't matter (236 comments)

I used Freedom with a capital F as a technical term. Actual freedom would be very good, as North Korea is one of the worst places in the world. Things like the 3-generation punishment policy, widespread famine, an insane ruler, prison camps, etc. etc. should just not exist anywhere on earth. However, my point was that the US does whatever it wants, not that NK isn't a horrible place.

Iraq didn't have WMDs, people are spirited away to Guantanamo Bay without being charged, and the NSA spies on literally the entire world without justifiable cause. The US just does what it wants, and right now it seems like it wants to inject some Freedom into North Korea.

Hackers' Shutdown of 'The Interview' Confirms Coding Is a Superpower

kruach aum Re:Huh? (221 comments)

Please enlighten me about where you get your malware from, because it's gotta be good if it just magically came into existence, no coding required.

Hackers' Shutdown of 'The Interview' Confirms Coding Is a Superpower

kruach aum Re:Huh? (221 comments)

Without coding, the movies and data wouldn't have been copied. Without the stick (release of more copied files) to back it up, the threat would have been ignored. There is a direct causal chain between the employ of coding as a skill by some group of people and a movie being pulled from release.

That's ridiculous. As weather prediction is notoriously bad, he would be far better off checking that information in his car, right before he leaves.

Research Highlights How AI Sees and How It Knows What It's Looking At

kruach aum Re:Philosophy (130 comments)

Now all we've learned is that you define school bus in an idiosyncratic way, which already differs from the one I replied to (that definition stipulated that school buses also need to be owned or operated by a school). And if we ask 10 more people, we're going to find 10 more definitions, and I'm sure I can think of counter examples to all of them (for example, your definition would include parent-driven SUVs or any other kind of car frequently used to move children to and from school, which definitely doesn't count). Nevertheless, school buses exist, and there are vehicles that are definitely school buses. Maybe the problem is not with school buses, but with definitions.

Blade Runner 2 Script Done, Harrison Ford Says "the Best Ever"

kruach aum Re:Why do I care what Harrison Ford thinks? (299 comments)

There were more than one actors in that movie, and I doubt their opinions are identical to each other. How do you decide between them? Surely only one of them can be right.

In other words, the fact that someone acted in a movie does not make their opinion more valuable than that of someone who hasn't.

Having seen blade runner myself, surely I am capable of judging the finished product without having to take the word of someone who has achieved fame by some method other than judging movie scripts?
