MPAA Bans Google Glass In Theaters

mydn Re:Anyone still going to the movies? (357 comments)

WTF theater do you go to? I buy my ticket on Fandango, no waiting. I don't even know what to say about the "3 hours in 100+ degrees heat", I've never experienced anything remotely close to that. The theaters which I frequent have staff that clear the theater of debris and spills in between shows. And the sound in the theater is probably the best sound that I hear anywhere.

Seriously, you need to find a better theater. Or open one yourself, it sounds like you've found a market for a decent theater.

The MOOC Revolution That Wasn't

mydn didn't even watch a single lecture (182 comments)

didn't even watch a single lecture

Therein lies the problem. I don't want to watch a fucking lecture. I don't want to slow down to the speed at which someone speaks. I can read much faster then someone can speak. I would greatly prefer to just read the material instead of watching a video. My mind will wander if I have to watch a lecture, since it is not being supplied information quickly enough. An occasional video that demonstrates something specific is fine, but not a lecture.

I can swim with my phone, but you have a point about battery life. My phone battery only lasts a few days.

Apple Announces Smartwatch, Bigger iPhones, Mobile Payments

mydn Re:So what exactly is the market here. (730 comments)

I also know I can go swimming in any of my watches and they'll be just fine.

I understand some of your points, but not this one. I can go swimming with my phone and it will be fine, too.

Bring On the Monsters: Tolkien's Translation of Beowulf To Be Published

mydn Joyous upturn of hope! (94 comments)

sudden joyous upturn of hope that he also expresses so superbly

You can really see that "joyous upturn of hope" at the end of the Lord of the Rings; After Frodo destroys the One Ring, he returns to the Shire and everything is just peachy-keen and happy! Classic Tolkien!

Well, that bricklayer might also be a member of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers. Perhaps you should ask your boss what he would think about you organizing the developers.

Interesting idea. Instead of paying "market price" for what you want, you could pay the "iron price" instead.

Seas Rising Faster Than Projected

mydn Re:Denier (605 comments)

So who will survive in the long run? Those with the 8 cans of sugar or those who figure out how to recycle it.

The ones who consume their sugar in order to give themselves the energy to invade the recyclers, kill them, and take their technology.
