US Doctors Back Circumcision

mjhacker Re:US women prefer circumcised penises (1264 comments)

Ego stroking is always a possibility, but I can safely say it's doubtful in my instance... I tend to have a lot of frank and open dialogue with my partners about sex. But if you think about it, the gliding mechanism that the foreskin provides means you can hit all the nice areas inside a woman without it creating uncomfortable friction, so it would make sense that it would feel better. I dunno, just my guess.

US Doctors Back Circumcision

mjhacker Re:US women prefer circumcised penises (1264 comments)

Because it's the norm in the states. Women in the rest of the developed western world prefer uncut men. I'm not circumsized, and was the first uncut man most of my partners had. I was told that the sex was much better than with cut partners. *shrug* I rather like my foreskin, and am grateful to my parents for not having me mutilated just to prop up some bullshit cultural tradition bogged in bad science and a complete misunderstanding of male anatomy.

Scientists Take Charles Darwin On the Road

mjhacker Re:Sounds like a good thing... (170 comments)

I'm in agreement. I was just pointing out to the person who threw a little god tantrum that bashing creationists is not necessarily the same as bashing the religious. The line is fuzzy, to be sure, but it's there.

mjhacker Re:Sounds like a good thing... (170 comments)

Being a theist does not equal being a creationist. Not everyone who believes in a deity is an ID proponent.

Square Enix Facing Big Losses For 2010

mjhacker Sad state of affairs for a once great company (210 comments)

How could a company that consistently produced quality entertainment for nearly two decades be reduced to a mere shadow of its former self? What happened? As probably one of the few people on /. that actually loved FFXI, I have to say, FFXIV was a complete waste of time. FFXI was fun, but it didn't age well, and there were a lot of things that SE could have learned from and done better. Instead of learning from their mistakes, they ended up making a less fun, more frustrating version of FFXI, and thought that making it pretty would solve everything. Well, it didn't, and now they're paying the price for it. SE needs to go back to the mindset that they had when they were just Square. They need to stop cranking out duds every 3 months. We need games that are on the caliber of FFVI, Chrono Trigger, and Xenogears. Otherwise, the world will simply stop caring about them... that is, if we haven't stopped caring already.

GPS Tracking Without a Warrant Declared Legal

mjhacker Re:Needs a Supreme Court ruling (926 comments)

Ah, libertarians, the very definition of misplaced idealism. Always insistent that the invisible hand of the free market can solve everything and makes everything better. Even though limited federal involvement (herp derp don't want to violate states' rights) made pretty much every single civil issue WORSE in this country. Remember slavery? Or segregation? Or how about all those southern states that wanna teach kids that the world isn't billions of years old?

Don't you have a Ron Paul convention to go to or something?

Abandon Earth Or Die, Warns Hawking

mjhacker Re:Abandon Earth, die anyway (973 comments)

Pretty sure Hawking never said we should ALL live on a spaceship. His point is that we need to begin colonization of space, and give humanity a much higher chance of continued survival.

Onion Story Gets Blown Out of Proportion

mjhacker Re:Suckaz (641 comments)

A healthy application of skepticism towards my own views rather than those that did not agree with me. It wasn't easy, but once I decided that I cared more about holding as many true beliefs and as few false beliefs as possible, I quickly discovered just how shaky and indefensible my position was.

Also, I was an Alex Jones disciple for a while, and over time I noticed that he was actually insane, and when he tried to talk about science it was a big red flag. That man is an idiot and he doesn't know what he's talking about most of the time.

Onion Story Gets Blown Out of Proportion

mjhacker Re:Suckaz (641 comments)

I suppose that could be the case for those that believed that Bush masterminded the whole thing by himself, but the Truther community is largely composed of those who believe the evil NWO global shadow government that secretly controls everything and wants to kill us all masterminded it. Meh. It's all bullshit and it kind of makes me nauseous to think about how credulous and ignorant those people are.

Onion Story Gets Blown Out of Proportion

mjhacker Re:Suckaz (641 comments)

No no no no no. You have obviously never been a 9/11 conspiracy theorist. 9/11 Truthers are invariably libertarians of the Alex Jones flavor. I'd wager that the percentage of 9/11 Truthers who are democrats is VASTLY lower than the number who would define themselves as either libertarian or paleoconservative. I can vouch for this as a former truther.

Anti-Technology Themes in James Cameron's Avatar

mjhacker Re:The Anti-American... (870 comments)

Actually, I didn't see anything Anti-American about it. It was private military working for a company, not the United States, and therefore was not related to America enough to be anti-American.

Conficker Worm Strike Reports Start Rolling In

mjhacker Re:I think its infected my car. (508 comments)

So conservatives would be okay with a gay couple deciding to get married? Or with decriminalizing marijuana? Or legalizing liquor sales on sundays? What makes the conservatives any less "elitist" for thinking that they can make better decisions for other people? I shouldn't be barred from buying a bottle of wine on Sunday because it might upset a hyper conservative Christian. Or if I was gay, I shouldn't be barred from entering into a simple legally binding contract with another consenting adult who happened to be the same sex. I'd say it's pretty damned "elitist" to make those decisions based on dogmatic values or personal prejudices.

How Do Games Grow Up?

mjhacker What about RPGs? (248 comments)

In my mind, the most "adult" games have always been RPGs. The cornerstone of an RPG is the story. It is essentially an interactive novel, complete with excellent graphics, music, and complex plot lines. The goal is not to mindlessly button mash, but to soak in the story. My love for reading was fostered by playing RPGs, and my need to get lost in more stories.
