Facebook Censoring Images of the Prophet Muhammad In Turkey

pitchpipe Re:Simple (226 comments)

In some countries bribes are just part of doing business. In others it is quite illegal.

So, corruption is okay as long as it is culturally acceptable? I see.

Greed trumps ethics and morals.

Eric Schmidt: Our Perception of the Internet Will Fade

pitchpipe Re:If all goes well. . . (228 comments)

Imagine when your coffee maker won't work because it doesn't detect that you've gotten up and into the shower, or the HVAC doesn't kick on for the room you've just entered because the house computer didn't detect occupancy, or the surround sound system malfunctions and thinks there's a party, so it turns on the music loudly at 3am, or the fridge's inventory list gets corrupted and it reorders everything that you have in an already full fridge...

OMG! Teh horrorz! Imagine being inundated with *extra* food. Noooooooooo...

Imagine ...

Imagine, your coffee maker works fine for years, automatically making your coffee as soon as you jump in the shower, and then one day, BAM! No fucking coffee. WTF are you gonna do now?!

God the future sucks!

An Open Letter To Everyone Tricked Into Fearing AI

Stastical modeling that makes a black yellow striped pattern look like a school bus, because it has no concept of anything and not intelligence in any sense of the word and that is the just what fits the statistical model.

NSA Official: Supporting Backdoored Random Number Generator Was "Regrettable"

pitchpipe Re:Wait, which part is he sorry about now? (106 comments)

No, I think you both still miss the point. I was "first post" before this article, Snowden, or anyone else. I was saying this was happening before even Slashdot's founding. I simply guessed it, well over a decade ago by following the money. Only then I wasn't rated "+5 Insightful" I was rated by my peers as "-5 crazy for saying the emperor is naked."

Will the real first post please stand up.

NSA Official: Supporting Backdoored Random Number Generator Was "Regrettable"

pitchpipe Re:Why is it regrettable? (106 comments)

I'd like to hear him explain his regret in a little more detail. Was it morally wrong? Was it against civil ethics? Was it anti-democratic? Was it illegal? Or was it that they got caught?

He regrets it like he regrets eating that hot chili cheese burrito.

US Government Lurked On Silk Road For Over a Year

pitchpipe Re:its a drug bust (129 comments)

For everyone who is about to object: what do you think a drug bust looks like? They posed as drugs consumers/dealers and busted the parties buying/selling. This seems like what my taxpayer dollars should go towards: stomping out illegal activity where it is prevalent.

Not only is it a complete waste of time and ruins people's lives, it is a fucking waste of my tax dollars. Oh, but they sure are about to win this stupid fucking drug war.

Next you think they'll try to outlaw stupidity, thereby breaking logic once and for all.

US Government Lurked On Silk Road For Over a Year

pitchpipe Re:Slashdot messing up their UI? (129 comments)

They're probably trying to fuck up the classic site so they have an excuse to roll out beta to fix it. It's definitely not displaying properly on my phone anymore.

If it becomes beta only, I'll become soylentnews.org only.

It's always good when terrorist groups act like 13-year old haxxor boys.

I hope their god is proud of them.

Yeah, joke's on them. Those script kiddies are the 72 virgins!

In Paris, Terrorists Kill 2 More, Take At Least 7 Hostages

pitchpipe Re:Yay, religion of peace! (490 comments)

It is the religion of 'peace'. They just define 'peace' a little differently.

Go out, and spread the religion by any peaceful means necessary. If your friend won't accept Allah, peacefully flog him in the streets. If someone insults Allah, peacefully remove his head. If a group refuses to convert to Islam, very peacefully bring your guns and bombs and peacefully kill as many of them as you can. If possible, obtain a peaceful nuclear weapon, and detonate it peacefully in their cities. They will be at peace. We bring them PEACE in the name of Allah!

Obama Proposes 2 Years of Free Community College

pitchpipe Re:"free" education costs too much (703 comments)

In my state they made preschool "free". Within the year the tuition costs tripled from previous levels that were flat the previous 5 years. Every time the government offers something for free it's cost becomes unbearable.

So what you are really saying is that contracting out work that should be handled by the government to private businesses results in problems? Didn't see that one coming.

2014: Hottest Year On Record

pitchpipe Re: noooo (560 comments)

Nuclear is the only viable solution to replace fossil fuels as our primary source of power generation.

Yeah! You're either for us, or against us. You must be either on, or off. You're like a fucking light switch. There is no room for fuzzy, gray, socialistic, faggotry thinking.

Can't you assholes get that through your thick skulls?!

Pope Francis To Issue Encyclical On Global Warming

pitchpipe Re:Agreed. (341 comments)

The pope is nothing compared to liberals. Liberals have ALL the answers to life's problems. They also have a cohesive set of beliefs and standards that will create a perfect society if only the unwashed would listen to them, and follow their tenants religiously. In this sense Liberals ARE GOD, and are much much more important that some faggy as pedo called the pope. Don't believe me, just ask a liberal. She or he will tell you that in fact she is Perfect, and then wage a sin tax on you for being white.

All must bow to the magnificence of liberal thought.

Pope Francis To Issue Encyclical On Global Warming

pitchpipe Re:Slashdot's refusal to accept climate change... (341 comments)

You see the same thing whenever feminism comes up. Another reliable way to bring out the morons is anything like "Hey, guys, rape is bad and people who do it are bad people."

If you equate rape with the few marginal forms of gender discrimination that still exist, you are part of the problem.

OMG! HAHA! That's some funny shit right there. That's why I keep coming here, exchanges like that.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Explains His Christmas Tweet

pitchpipe Re:No group "owns" any day on the calendar. (681 comments)

The only thing offensive is that there are still people who think that Christmas is Jesus' (Joshua, Yeshua) was born on Christmas day.

Okay, there are TWO things that are offensive - the other is that nominally educated people can't spell "believe".

  • Cunt
  • Cocksucker
  • Motherfucker

Okay, now theirs lik 3 offensive things, if i've spelt thatt shit rite.

Calling someone out for a typo while making a typo is also offensive ... or something.

Also, your first sentence made my eyes bleed.

How the Internet Is Taking Away America's Religion

pitchpipe pitchpipe writes  |  about 10 months ago

pitchpipe (708843) writes "

Using the Internet can destroy your faith. That’s the conclusion of a study showing that the dramatic drop in religious affiliation in the U.S. since 1990 is closely mirrored by the increase in Internet use.

I attribute my becoming an atheist to the internet, so what the study is saying supports my anecdote. If I hadn't been exposed to all of the different arguments about religion, etc., via the internet I would probably just be another person who identifies as religious but doesn't attend services. What does Slashdot think? Have you become more religious, less religious, or about the same since being on the internet? What if you've always had it?"

Company Deleting Facebook Page; 80% of Ad Clicks from Bots

pitchpipe pitchpipe writes  |  about 2 years ago

pitchpipe (708843) writes "Hey everyone, we're going to be deleting our Facebook page in the next couple of weeks, but we wanted to explain why before we do ... We built our own analytic software. Here's what we found: on about 80% of the clicks Facebook was charging us for, JavaScript wasn't on ... The 80% of clicks we were paying for were from bots. That's correct. Bots were loading pages and driving up our advertising costs."

Antarctica Experiment Discovers Puzzling Space Ray

pitchpipe (708843) writes "A puzzling pattern in the cosmic rays bombarding Earth from space has been discovered by an experiment buried deep under the ice of Antarctica.

[...]it turns out these particles are not arriving uniformly from all directions. The new study detected an overabundance of cosmic rays coming from one part of the sky, and a lack of cosmic rays coming from another."

Book says White House ordered forgery

pitchpipe pitchpipe writes  |  more than 6 years ago

pitchpipe (708843) writes "Pulitzer Prize winning reporter, Ron Suskind, claims that the White House ordered the CIA to forge a back-dated, handwritten letter from the head of Iraqi intelligence to Saddam Hussein. Suskind writes in "The Way of the World," to be published Tuesday, that the alleged forgery was designed to portray a false link between Hussein's regime and al Qaeda as a justification for the Iraq war.

Remember the news then, that "Mohammad Atta had actually trained for his mission in Iraq.""

pitchpipe (708843) writes "From the article

WESTON, Wis. (AP) — Police are investigating an 11-year-old girl's death from an undiagnosed, treatable form of diabetes after her parents chose to pray for her rather than take her to a doctor.
Sometimes I think we are regressing."
