How Old Were You When You First Got a Cell Phone?

psychicninja Maybe ask "in what year" (330 comments)

Due to the variety of ages on Slashdot, of course 22+ is going to be the primary answer. If they asked "in what year did you first get a cell phone?" that would be a more interesting result set. For me it was late 2004, junior year in college. Not quite the last of all my friends to get one, but just almost. The only other guy who didn't still lived at home, so... yeah.

Where does your electricity come from?

psychicninja According to the ladwp website (498 comments)

Natural Gas - 26%
Large Hydroelectric - 7%
Renewables* - 14%
Nuclear - 9%
Coal - 44%

*Renewable energy sources include biomass and waste, small hydroelectric, wind, solar, and geothermal. So, I guess I'd need an "all of the above" option. This is the first slashpoll where I've actually learned something interesting as a direct result!

Castle notwithstanding (I also like it), Joss made Dr. Horrible because of the WGA strike, not because he wasn't making Firefly.

Stewart and Colbert Plan Competing D.C. Rallies

psychicninja Re:Kudos (696 comments)

...because most of them pay no taxes

This is the thing that I hear from (mostly) the Right which pisses me off the most. The argument boils down to: Poor/immigrants/liberals/etc. aren't participating in society and freeloading because they "don't pay taxes". This is pure bullshit.

What they really mean is, they don't have INCOME tax liability. Even if I didn't have any (which I do), I am still paying social security, medicare/caid, sales tax, gas tax, car registration, and (by virtue of being employed) payroll and corporate taxes. Just because people don't make enough to be taxed on income, people act like they don't pay taxes at all. Also, I am right in the middle of the Daily Show and Colbert's audience (26 and liberal) and I pay taxes; including income tax. Please find some other bullshit reason to completely ignore my opinion.

Given Truth, the Misinformed Believe Lies More

psychicninja Re:This study is nothing but Communist propaganda (961 comments)

Yes. To quote Jon Stewart, to Bill O'Reilly, "You're the sanest voice on this entire network. And that's a little scary sometimes."

Mr. Stewart went on to say that's "like being the thinnest kid at fat camp." I love that line.

Doctors Seeing a Rise In "Google-itis"

psychicninja Re:Google-itis (368 comments)

Also, when I first saw it my brain was pretty sure it said "google-tits", which is probably an even more common problem...

Of these options, I'd call the place I live ...

psychicninja Re:Hard to say (515 comments)

Interesting. I live in Bozeman, MT which clocks in at somewhere over 35,000 (without the University). For Montana, we're a good sized city (4th largest in the state), though in Japan, California, etc. it would hardly register.

Iran's Nuclear Ambitions

psychicninja Re:Mutually Assured Destruction (1032 comments)

We just need to let them know that nobody ever said those 71 virgins were women.

Ah yes: a huge, eternal, post-mortal D&D session awaits the faithful jihadist.

Sam Raimi To Direct World of Warcraft Movie

psychicninja Re:Legend of the Seeker (298 comments)

Raimi also produces the Legend of the Seeker tv series. Make of THAT what you will!

Two things:

1. 'Produces' (actually, co-produces) != has a strong hand in the art direction, storyline, acting, etc. thereof
2. I actually like this show. It's reminiscent of the old Hercules and Xena shows, though not quite as quirky. For a TV fantasy show it has a few things going for it: very accessible plot, attractive females, and respectable fight choreography to name a few.

Recovery.gov To Get $18 Million Redesign

psychicninja Transparency ain't free (434 comments)

I'm not saying $18M is cheap, but if you really want transparency about where tax dollars go it'll cost you. It costs even more if you want something that is simple and straightforward enough for "average" Americans to use and understand...

Dungeons & Dragons Online Goes Free-To-Play

psychicninja Re:They Made D&D Online? (178 comments)

Seriously D&D Online must have sucked pretty bad for flying this low under the radar and making a free-to-play version sounds like a really really bad idea...

Yes, your ignorance is clearly the standard by which all MMOs should be judged.

Wikipedia Bans Church of Scientology

psychicninja Re:nice (665 comments)

http://www.conservapedia.com/Evolution Wow ... I first thought this was joke site, but, just wow ...

I disagree, it must be a joke site. This has to be about the funniest goddamn thing I've ever read:

In addition to the evolutionary position lacking evidential support and being counterevidence, the great intellectuals in history such as Archimedes, Aristotle, St. Augustine, Francis Bacon, Isaac Newton, and Lord Kelvin did not propose an evolutionary process for a species to transform into a more complex version.

Customer Resource Management For Non-Profits?

psychicninja RightNow CRM (186 comments)

I've worked with this software before, and it has the ability to sync contact information from Outlook. I'm not sure about pricing, but I know the company is very supportive of non-profits in general.

Senator Diane Feinstein Trying to Kill Net Neutrality

psychicninja Re:How ridiculous. (873 comments)

They are all crooks.

In general, yes, but...

The hypocrisy of the democrats who ripped on republicans and Bush and now ignore it when they do the EXACT same type of stuff just kills me.

I would say EXACT same type of stuff. I for one would much rather go into debt trying to help the economy and make things better at home than invading foreign nations for almost no reason.

Change we can believe in ROFL. I'll bet now not one real change will happen.

Obama IS changing the tone in Washington, just not all at once. The democrats in congress are just getting there pants tight over finally being able to DO something that they're stuffing this stimulus bill full of everything they've ever wanted. They shouldn't be doing this, but history has shown that the president doesn't have complete control over ANY party in congress, even their own (this is a good thing). Before you say there's no change, keep in mind that a few things are already different from our last administration.

Darwinism Must Die So Evolution Can Live

psychicninja Re:How to Falsify Evolution (951 comments)

Nice copy paste. Then again, that's typical Creationist behavior.

It's not just a straight copy paste, every time this is posted it's slightly different. After a few thousand posts, it may turn into a cogent argument!
