Is Daylight Saving Time Bad For You?

notommy Natural Selection! (333 comments)

This is the weak getting picked off. If you can't handle an hour change twice a year, you probably shouldn't be getting up (to work) anyways.

> 'We want robots to be able to get their own energy from the environment,'

Umm ... isn't this a bad idea? I'm part of the environment. And I've seen movies where... you know... with trinity and all.

Ah I'm sure nothing will go wrong this time.

RIM Reaches Temporary Agreement With India

notommy Re:RIM job (109 comments)

Who else thinks that if you wanted to read some of the emails your competitors were sending, all you have to do is bribe a law enforcement officer?

Suspected Mariposa Botnet Creator Arrested

notommy Re:Two years? (95 comments)

Nah. It's because the Spanish police kept retiring after 6 months on the job.

No? I can't make jokes about Spanish laziness? Fine.

Kidding aside though, it's going to take a bit of time for the law enforcement to catch up to cyber attackers. The US anti-cyberterrorism (or whatever that's called) was only setup after obama came to power and I'm fairly sure they're not very organized yet.

Southwest Adds 'Mechanical Difficulties' To Act Of God List

notommy This WASN'T on their list before? (223 comments)

Clearly the mechanic that was supposed to do the checks was told (psychically ofcourse) by God NOT to them. Resulting in the mechanical failure not being discovered.

This is classic God influence. And is exactly what God intended, Mr. so called Mann.

notommy iPad (502 comments)

Would this interactivity work on the iPad??? Stupid WP. Still using old, outdated, and unreliable technology. Are they assuming noone with an iPad could possibly be interested in anything to do with current affairs? oh right. Nevermind.

Hollywood Accounting — How Harry Potter Loses Money

notommy Re:Not a new trick (447 comments)

I would like to point out that this sort of accounting is not a new trick anywhere, not just in hollywood. This happens all the time, where a company would pay its sub fees above the fair market value of the service provided in order to create losses. The problem here is not the fact that they paid themselves, but paid too much.

Ideally, The terms for these types of related party transactions should be set out in the contract. Not bickered over after in courts. Especially since this has been going on for ages and ages.

Prince Says Internet Is Over

notommy Way to go SD! (450 comments)

for featuring something someone with an IQ of 23 said in a "newspaper" for people with IQ of 11. I hope this wasn't posted here for /. users to laugh at. Because it's not nice to laugh at the mentally retarded!

The person who approved this clearly has a sick sense of humor and should me immediately fired.

You're posting post your opinion as fact. They are different things. Please don't confuse them.

Study Claims Cellphones Implicated In Bee Loss

notommy Why is slashdot accepting stories from Telegraph?? (542 comments)

Have you no standard? It's a retarded newspaper that prints nothing but idiocy.

Christ! What's next on slashdot? Healthy eating research article from Burger King's site? That only features stuff from their menu?

USAF Scramjet Hits Mach 6, Sets Record

notommy Re:Uh hu (326 comments)

Commercial transportation at Mach 6. That's definitely the application they're striving for. Definitely. Don't you have enough deadly toys by now?

Blagh! Not another one. Go back to wheatgrass and let the men decide when we have enough deadly toys.

I think most men would agree that the answer to that is "not quite yet."

Google Stops Ads For "Cougar" Sites

notommy We do not care :( (319 comments)

Once again, another story that has NO impact on the readers of /. Neither "hot older women" nor "cute young men" can be found here. Thanks for reminding us you jerk!

If would be a different story however, if google had banned a site for women seeking basement dwelling fat people.

Gulf Gusher Worst Case Scenario

notommy Re:That much oil? (799 comments)

Environmentalists with credentials like the author of that idiotic article. I actually had someone tell me he was an environmentalist when I asked what he did. And when I asked what sciences he studied in university, turned out he is a history major. How could that possibly help? Just reading something other scientists have published does not make you a scientist!

Too many obnoxious people describe themselves to be environmentalists because that's the cool thing to do now. When you read a claim made by someone, see what their credentials are. David Suzuki and David Attenborough for example are proper environmentalists. The guy who couldn't beat Bush in an election however, quoting JC, is not.

PS: Even though my two examples' name were David, not all actual environmentalists are named that.

In India what we would consider jaywalking is known as "crossing the street". So no, your nightmare scenario would never happen. Otherwise everyone would be in jail.
