US Doctors Back Circumcision

kyrio Re:Jesus. (1264 comments)

Ignoring that penile cancer is nearly non-existent, it is generally caused by bad hygiene. So yeah, you can scrub it away. According to you, though, we should cut off every girl's tits and we should probably remove their dirty cunt lips. You can't scrub cancer away from girls, you know!

US Doctors Back Circumcision

kyrio Re:$313 is worth it (1264 comments)

313 dollars and girls will want to blow my son more? Sign me up.

The girls won't, though. The huge majority of the world does not practice genital mutilation - that means that the huge majority of the world's women will find a mutilated penis to be "icky." I mean, unless you really want your son to only get blowjobs from prostitutes. If that's what you want, spend that $200-$2000.

US Doctors Back Circumcision

kyrio Re:Circumcision (1264 comments)

I'm not sure where you're getting that "Canadian medical care" is "bad". I make appointments for later in the day and never wait more than 3 minutes to get into them. In the appointment, all of my issues are solved or further appointments with specialists or labs are made.

US Doctors Back Circumcision

kyrio Re:Circumcision or healthy lifestyle, which's bett (1264 comments)

Your whole post about HIV/AIDS is pretty retarded. The #1 way to keep yourself from getting AIDS through sex is to not have sex with those infected with AIDS. It has nothing to do with hygiene, or your homophobia. The only thing that matters with AIDS through sex is not fucking someone with AIDS. Yes, a condom may help, but having a partner who isn't diseased, and making sure of that with current blood tests, is the only way to make sure you aren't getting AIDS - or any other STD.

On that note, male genital mutilation is repulsive. There's a reason that the Americans are the only ones in the world (outside of a few American loving countries) who have such a high rate of circumcision. Go to Europe and it's nearly non-existent. Also, any person who chooses to have his child mutilated is a piece of shit.

Peace out.

The Worst Apple Store In America — An Employee Confession

kyrio Re:Gizmodo has been banned for life from Apple eve (310 comments)

In Toronto, a person can get a minimum wage job at $10.25/hour and: he doesn't need to pay more money for some health care insurance that won't cover anything and will still cost more money with "copays". He only pays $5 for a week's worth of locally and internationally grown fruit and vegetables. He can get a nice one bedroom apartment for as low as $650, all in. The majority of his city is coloured by plants and trees. Electronics, especially computer related, are often found for lower prices than US listings - otherwise, they are on par.

It's good to be Canadian.

$900,000 Raised For Buying Tesla's Lab

$50 Sound Cards Impress Versus Integrated Audio

kyrio Re:Distance from the power supply (245 comments)

Yeah, all of those tracks were/are on Demonoid, et al. Many of them are fakes, especially from a certain site (studio upmixes/lazy remixes - in other words, not from the source material). I suggest you search the 'net for each of those albums to make sure they are, in fact, mixed from the original sources. You might just be running with a bit of confirmation bias/buyer's remorse.

ISPs Throttling BitTorrent Traffic, Study Finds

Why are you wondering about it; why not do it? If you don't have the skill to do it, find someone who does. Stop wondering and start doing.

ISPs Throttling BitTorrent Traffic, Study Finds

kyrio Re:Good (228 comments)

Dear God, the above comment needs to get modded up to the max. It's no different from the morons who go on about population density in Canada being the reason for ancient speeds and horrible prices.

No, you dipshits, if that was the case, some of the provinces east of Ontario wouldn't have 100/100 connections in cities of 1000 people for less than $100/m. If "horrible" population density was really the case, Toronto, which contains 1/6th of the population of Canada in a tiny* city, would have unlimited, unfiltered transfer on gigabit connections to the home for less than $50/m. Yes, I know you can get 100Mbit connections in some parts of the west, and it costs a fortune too.

Legitimate eBook Lending Community Closed After Copyright Complaints

kyrio Re:Authors still attacking their Facebook page (288 comments)

Philip Catshill - ?"Hang on hang on.... I have just registered and tried to download my own book, But the site tells me the Book CANNOT BE BORROWED - ONLY BOUGHT :

I don't think this moron realizes that his book isn't available for borrowing because it's a piece of shit and nobody bought it to lend it out. Well, considering his inability to write proper English, I'm not surprised.

Acer: Microsoft Surface 'Negative For The Whole PC Industry'

kyrio Re:Pot Calling The Kettle A Racist Word (360 comments)

1) It's a shame you didn't contact some news outlets with your information. 2) It's a shame you didn't request a refund to your fee after the ruling. 3) What were you expecting from a company that makes ugly, budget products and sells them for dirt cheap?

I was dumb enough to buy an Acer LCD TV about 6.5 years ago. I've regretted it every day since.

Thin Mini-ITX Platform Enables DIY iMacs

kyrio Nicely done (206 comments)

Make a product that's as big as, and probably still costs much less than an Apple product, and make a fortune selling it to people who want Apple products but can't afford them.

On an unrelated note, why is it that I can post 50 comments that are modded up or just stay at 1 (assuming unmodded), yet a single post that's marked as a troll, by butthurt people, knocks my "excellent" karma down to "good", seemingly permanently?

What Happens To Your Used Games?

kyrio Re:Do you even read your own drivel (276 comments)

Ignoring that a 3-6 year old car can easily look like it's brand new, I'm not sure where you're getting your used games that are in mint condition. Last I checked, people don't care about taking care of their belongings any longer - if it breaks, throw it away and get a new one.

What Happens To Your Used Games?

kyrio Re:Absolutely! Down with 'used' products! (276 comments)

Are you really so foolish to believe that removing the used game market would magically drop the prices on unused retail products? That's what it sounds like you're saying. If anything, the prices will just go up.

What Happens To Your Used Games?

kyrio Re:Failed business model. (276 comments)

Development costs. 100 people working for 2 yeras isn't cheap.

You've gone on to list other things that aren't relevant in the least. He was saying that development is what costs a fortune, and it doesn't (even if you double their pay, and I know they don't get paid that much). Ignoring the small cost of development, if you look at how much money is made from a single game, all of the other costs still don't add up to a loss. Companies like EA wouldn't exist if they were losing money on every game. Small companies that sell only in the thousands of tens of thousands of units wouldn't be making games if they were only making losses on every game.
