Omand Warns of "Ethically Worse" Spying If Unbreakable Encryption Is Allowed

misexistentialist Re:This is a good thing (388 comments)

East Germany had mass targeted surveillance. The English don't have that German dedication, if this guy is bringing up "ethics" he's probably thinking about torturing or assassinating a lot more people than he is used to

Calif. DMV Back-Pedals On Commercial-Plate Mandate For Ride-Share Drivers

misexistentialist Re:Insurance (208 comments)

Is it based on risk or on companies being less price sensitive? Anyway individual rates are rapidly adjusted based on claims, if they are really outside the statistical norm they could end paying even more than the commercial rate or being dropped

Behind the MOOC Harassment Charges That Stunned MIT

misexistentialist Re:Respect yourself (375 comments)

Your daughter would obviously have a lot more power playing the helpless victim, you're doing a poor job preparing her to get ahead in life. It's not too late, have her send me some pics...

Behind the MOOC Harassment Charges That Stunned MIT

misexistentialist Re:Not trying to excuse what he did (375 comments)

If she admits to being so unstable she should be committed to an insane asylum for life. Of course the professor's behavior would be criminal against an inmate of an asylum, but MIT has not been certified as a loony bin yet.

Lies, Damn Lies, and Tech Diversity Statistics

misexistentialist Re:I don't think it'll ever really happen (335 comments)

"Inclusiveness" is a value of girl culture, the culture that geeks left behind so they could get shit done. Most of the women in the equivalent IQ and socioeconomic bracket are very happily employed by the government doing absolutely nothing, damn right they aren't going to ever get off their fat asses to switch places with a working man.

misexistentialist Re:What diversity issue? (479 comments)

Sounds like discrimination, you need to give the job to the type of person who needs it most.

Several European Countries Lay Groundwork For Heavier Internet Censorhip

misexistentialist Re:(European) left-wing = "red fascism"! (319 comments)

their head explodes because they can compute it in their black and white world where everybody "left" is Islam loving or whatever they call it.

Leftist subverters promote Islam to destroy the status quo, but of course the ultimate goal is an atheistic orthodoxy. This contradictory "dialectic" makes opponents of leftism look like they are chasing their tails until they realize that leftism is a government disease. No welfare subsidies+no employment regulation=no immigration problem

Google Fund To Pay For 1 Million Copies of Charlie Hebdo

misexistentialist Re:My 2 pence (311 comments)

The idea that yes, you offend those who abuse power.

I doubt Muslims have much power to abuse in France. If they did they would have had the police shut down the newspaper like it would have been if it was shitting on Jews.

Russia Says Drivers Must Not Have "Sex Disorders" To Get License

misexistentialist Re:Insanity (412 comments)

Anti-family values is also an easy way to get votes. Do you really think Obama promotes sodomy for the benefit of the country?

Intel Pledges $300 Million To Improve Diversity In Tech

misexistentialist Re:why the hate (341 comments)

The lower rating does not contradict reality if life experience shows that a female will under-perform a male with the same qualifications. Of course that's using unreliable data, but it's also an untested belief that they will perform the same. It would be more convincing if the candidates already had 2 years experience in the same job with excellent recommendations, in the absence of solid information weaker assumptions gain importance

Publications Divided On Self-Censorship After Terrorist Attack

misexistentialist Re:Our strongest weapon (512 comments)

Except Europe is not free. France has banned performances of a Muslim comedian, banned wearing crucifixes, has forced companies to hire women. These edicts are enforced with infinite armed violence.

Publications Divided On Self-Censorship After Terrorist Attack

misexistentialist Re:Better Onion article (512 comments)

Cartoons can be used to "jokingly" libel or incite violence as you can see from racist and wartime propaganda. Not sure what this French paper was publishing, but apparently they were even taunting Islamists for not following through with their threats.

FBI: North Korean Hackers "Got Sloppy", Leaked IP Addresses

misexistentialist Re:Playing devil's advocate (219 comments)

Seems like it would be a good idea anyway since it's one of the few areas not under total surveillance by the World Police

Intel Pledges $300 Million To Improve Diversity In Tech

misexistentialist Re:why the hate (341 comments)

People that sound the same on paper of course perform differently, the study assumes that there is zero correlation of performance with sex. Maybe if the "applications materials" demonstrated actual performance/productivity the study would have a point, but it sounds like it was a standard candidate for a standard job.

Intel Pledges $300 Million To Improve Diversity In Tech

misexistentialist Re:Why only in Tech? (341 comments)

White men are never diverse, just like pizza with no toppings is never Special. But when shit gets real you don't have time or space for toppings. That's when diversity-lovers begin to say that crust and cheese is obsolete all you need is a pile of toppings.

misexistentialist Re:why the hate (341 comments)

That's like telling people before they take a sip that you want to replace their fresh brewed coffee with Folger's Crystals and being surprised that they prefer real coffee. Why have a poor substitute when you can have the real thing?

Writer: How My Mom Got Hacked

misexistentialist Re:The Government is NOT here to help you... (463 comments)

Plus this is the sort of nonsense that your government is supposed to do something about

Nah, it's more like what people imagine the government cares about. Lots of people are still scammed through letters and phone calls, and there are thousands of homes broken into every day. Meanwhile most police investigators are busy smoking weed with drug dealers, and the NSA is occupied with tracking the cellphone of a goat herder in Pakistan whose cousin's brother began growing his beard 4cm longer.

Indiana Court Rules Melted Down Hard Drive Not Destruction of Evidence

misexistentialist Re:How is this supposed to work...? (181 comments)

Sentences are substantially increased for wearing a mask during a robbery or laundering money from a drug business, for example, they are only limited by their imaginations when bringing charges

The One Mistake Google Keeps Making

misexistentialist Re:Laughably wrong. (386 comments)

You can have a driving simulator installed, most people will be playing Grand Theft Auto mode, but you can experience the peace of sitting in a traffic jam as your car drives you to work non-stop at 100mph
