mr.mctibbs Bennett, buddy (350 comments)

We're happy to hear your stories. But, listen: maybe they should go on the fridge, instead of the front page of Slashdot.

Ok, bud?

Russia Takes Down Steve Jobs Memorial After Apple's Tim Cook Comes Out

mr.mctibbs Re:PR hoax (430 comments)

So I read that article out of curiosity, and if it's representative of RT's reporting it makes American media look just, very sad by comparison.

US Post Office Increases Secret Tracking of Mail

mr.mctibbs Re:There's hope (112 comments)

That county is dead. The residence of the county are legally responsible for the debt.

Maricopa county has a population of 3.8 million. If a $1 million judgment can destroy their budget they have bigger things to worry about.

Elon Musk Warns Against Unleashing Artificial Intelligence "Demon"

mr.mctibbs I'm not a doctor, but... (583 comments)

My real addiction is information.

It sounds more like you're addicted to the smell of your own bullshit.

US Army May Relax Physical Requirements To Recruit Cyber Warriors

mr.mctibbs Re:This. (308 comments)

Many of us who exercise regularly don't do it for the runner's high, but because it can be meditative. Speaking as somebody with ADD, having even a small portion of my brain dedicated exclusively to one task gives me a kind of clarity I haven't found anywhere else.

As Prison Population Sinks, Jails Are a Steal

mr.mctibbs In a nutshell (407 comments)

"There's a prisoner shortage"

Framing it this way is typical of a mindset that is depressingly endemic in our culture. We do not have a shortage of prisoners, we have an excess of prisons.

How Many People Does It Take To Colonize Another Star System?

mr.mctibbs Re:How many Earthworms? (392 comments)

This guy's got the right idea. IN ISOLATION, how much total biodiversity is required to sustain a stable ecosystem that can support humans and is resistant to systemic failure?

Slashdot beta sucks

mr.mctibbs Honestly? (9 comments)

I don't think it really needs any discussion. I visit Slashdot precisely because of its layout and discussion style. If they take that away, there's nothing keeping me here that I can't get at any one of the bazillion gawker sites.

Bottom line, really: if they change it, I have no reason to come back.

Syrian Gov't Agrees To Russian Chem-Weapon Turnover Plan

mr.mctibbs Wall Street (362 comments)

Are you wondering why on Earth Obama would think it's a good idea to bomb Syria, when Libya was such a disaster? I'll give you a hint: both countries are non-members of the WTO, with state-owned banking systems. So is Iran.

http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/making_the_world_safe_for_banksters_syria_in_the_cross-hairs_20130905/

The people who financed Obama's elections -- and who are the only folks for whom he's been a good president -- are the ones who have the most to gain by regime change in Syria.

Australia Makes Asian Language Learning a Priority

mr.mctibbs Re:English... (230 comments)

Or, you know, maybe because it's the language spoken by the other half of the western hemisphere? Just a thought.

Explosions at the Boston Marathon

mr.mctibbs Citation Needed (1105 comments)

"Drones killing civilians is an accident; people thought there was a military target there. Sometimes mistakes happen, and innocent people die, but the intent is to target military forces and largely that is what happens."

According to whom, the government that won't officially acknowledge the program exists?

North Korea's Twitter and Flickr Accounts Hacked By Anonymous

mr.mctibbs You goin' Soviet on us? (212 comments)

It is perfectly fine to strip away the rights of a person if they are nuts in a way that is a danger to the physical safety of other human beings.

Firing a Laser Into Your Brain Could Help Beat a Drug Addiction

mr.mctibbs Re:Addiction (156 comments)

Bah, ignore me. I misread; only the section on MDMA references a Scientology article. That part was still bullshit, though.

Anybody else notice that a good chunk of that article's references are articles by a Scientology front group?
