The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

phishen Re: Pft (957 comments)

The first amendment protects you and me from the government. It does not protect you and me from each other.

I love the way you said this

GoPro Project Claims Technology Is Making People Lose Empathy For Homeless

phishen Re:perception (320 comments)

I don't know about the Mexico bit, but pretty much all homeless people I see by the side of the off ramps fit the bill described above. There was this one lady that always hung out in front of a shopping center near my friend's place giving the same story about trying to save up enough for a bus ride across town. We saw her for months, and I joked that she could have walked there by now. Well, my friend actually stopped to talk to her, let her know that we'd been given the same story by her for months, and actually asked her why she didn't just walk there. The lady looked embarrassed. We never saw her there again.

IRS Can Now Seize Your Tax Refund To Pay a Relative's Debt

phishen Re:Bush Vetoed this, apparently (632 comments)

And yet these are exactly the kinds of bills that have been applauded in recent time. Even when anyone agrees that a great portion of a bill like this is beneficial, when they question even the smallest part of it or whether the entire bill was considered by everyone who voted for it, they are labeled a hater.

Will Living On Mars Drive Us Crazy?

phishen Wouldn't work on me (150 comments)

I don't think I could correctly participate in the experiment because I'd know if anything went wrong that it would all be over soon, and if anything really went wrong they would open it up and rescue me

Now if they told me I was going to fly to Mars and put me in a simulator that made me feel like I was actually lifting off and going into space (and I didn't know it was a simulation) I'd probably fall for it. Sounds like a better experiment to me. Actually, I think that's a J. G. Ballard short story already. Oh well.

Xbox One Reputation System Penalizes Gamers Who Behave Badly

phishen Re:OMG FAG LOL (183 comments)

And not to mention anyone who beats you in-game is CLEARLY cheating.

Preface: I know that was a joke =) +1 funny

However, I am primarily a PC gamer, but I have a PS3 for Final Fantasy, etc (never shooters, I just prefer those on PC). I have always wondered, how does one actually cheat on a console? You can't install auto-aim programs or anything else like you can on PC, or am I mistaken?

70% of U.S. Government Spending Is Writing Checks To Individuals

phishen Re:Makers and takers (676 comments)

Investing money in securities is typically about as useful to the economy as stuffing it in a mattress.

Perhaps you should invest in better securities.

modulo the 30% broker fee, of course

You should definitely invest with a different broker

Ask Slashdot: When Is a Better Career Opportunity Worth a Pay Cut?

phishen Re:a good motto when looking for a new job (263 comments)

The time to run away is before you take the offer. Do your due diligence.

The post wasn't about running away from a job offer. It is about not running away from your current job, but running to a job you want. If you are looking for a job because you want to run away from your current job, then you will most likely not find what you are looking for and will take anything. This will not end well. If you decide that you want a new job and you have an idea or a goal in mind, then you will most likely look for the right job, or perhaps a dream job of sorts. This will be the job you actually want and not just any job but the one you have.
