In the 2012 U.S. presidential election:
This being my first time voting (and after many political debates with friends and family) I have come to the conclusion that
1. Neither party is fit to run this country.
2. I will have to pick one of the 2 major parties (sorry vermin supreme)
3. (the issue I have) Not voting, paints you into a ethical and logical corner where if you don't vote, you should not be able to complain about politics because you did not participate in the process. (this is my fathers philosophy, not mine, but i would like some feedback on it)
Russia Wants a Hypersonic Bomber
There is probably a good reason for that...
Iranian Players Blocked From World of Warcraft Due To Trade Sanctions
These lists are all posted in the list room. YES, the US goverment has a list room. Very similar to the chart room. If you have any questions please reffer to this list so you can find the appropriate room.
Why Juries Have No Place In the Patent System
My concern is how they can judge apple, the creators of the iPhone "cough" "cough" over samsung... If the jury is supposed to be unbiased... how will you find people who have not heard of the iPhone in the US.
Campaign Urges People To Send MPAA and RIAA Copied Currency
seeing how my copy machine breaks down so often, I would be surprised if that was actually true. how could that piece of junk have anything in it besides the process to stop working.
Congress's Techno-Ignorance No Longer Funny
If people want to vote in a politician that takes $450,000 from Wal-Mart and the people know that this is the case then they get what they deserve.
The issue I find in this is that with the two party system you can either vote for the guy who is supported by Wal-Mart, or the guy who is supported by Target. I find politics to be a "catch 22" because I am stuck voting for the lesser of evils or giving up my right to complain about because I didn't vote.
Debt Reduction Super Committee Fails To Agree
why vote for a lesser of evils?
Are You Prepared For the Zombie Apocalypse?
The thing that is scary about this poll is not the percent of people who are prepared for such an event its the larger percent who are not. Do humanity a favor and do some homework on zombies. most accounts have something in common so the unlike some fields the information is somewhat consistent; and if not i look forward to dismembering you in the future.
Microsoft Announces Halo 4, TV For Xbox Live, Kinect Star Wars
Personally i don't see this working. i can play Minecraft on my PC with an Xbox controller (xpadder) and even then i still need to bind my mouse to the sticks. not that that's a bad thing, but traditionally games for PC are a bit more complicated that games for console. also the whole Xbox controller for the PC is more of a toy to show off to friends than effective way to play games like WoW or LoL.
Super Mario Coming To the 3DS
Will i have to go and buy a 3DS or can i use it on my regular DSi. cuz i dont want to spend 200+ on a hand held system that i will only use for 1 game (and what ever Metroid/Zelda/other Nintendo classic here)
The Ethics of Social Games
weather from personal experience or from how the media talks about the difference, there is a much bigger gap in MMOs and social games like the ones you find on the iPhone and Facebook, this hole in the story is Plot. if you sit down and play farmville or mafia wars, you are only there to press buttons and talk with friends and collect rewards from those around you at the time. In MMOs like WoW or the soon to be released Starwars The Old Republic, you get a community of people who play the game for the same reason people spend all their time playing non-MMOs on their consoles.
PC Gamers Too Good For Consoles Gamers?
This goes to all my friends who kick my @$$ at Gears and Halo.
Cyberwarrior Shortage Threatens US Security
We don't have sufficiently bright people
well DUH, the 'cyber warriors' that the government wants are hard to find. mostly because they are either trained IT security professionals or a kid who figured out how to hack his school to change his grades. the first of the 2 will be easy to get with the increase in IT students. however unlike china, there is sever punishment for committing cyber crimes. china and other countries have the right idea of hiring the hackers instead of locking them away like we used to do
Blizzard To Require Real First and Last Names For Official Forums
Im sure that Mr.T's WOW character is already easy to find... just look at all of them..?
Desired Input For Console Video Games?
Well, not exactly... there is a very good version of Rogue for the iPhone called 'Rogue Touch'. the controls are a but simpler, but you still do almost anything (eg. throw a potion of demolition and hope it explodes) also i find the iPhone version just as difficult to complete as the original. one of the few cases when a classic is remade of a modern device well.
Theremin Guitar Hero
i would love it if anyone could write down how to do that so others can recreate that. it would be so cool to show that off in front of your friends.
A delicious steak should be ...
cake is a lie.
YouTube, Now In Text Mode!
this is actually cool. i hope its not one of /.s April fools jokes
Google Renames Itself "Topeka"
Its April Fools day dumb ass. /. is just doing what it usually does every year. im just glad that didn't turn the page pink... again
If ET Calls, Who Speaks For Humanity?
