ravenshrike Re: life on the wrong side of an online hate mob (680 comments)

More importantly, with both Goon Squad and GNAA admitting to trolling the fuck out of th GG issue, the default assumption without actual proof must be professional troll.

Ancient Planes and Other Claims Spark Controversy at Indian Science Congress

ravenshrike Re: Greeks (381 comments)

Given the existence of Rocket City Alabama was perhaps not the best choice for denigration. In fact, any of the surrounding states would have been better examples.

TSA Has Record-Breaking Haul In 2014: Guns, Cannons, and Swords

ravenshrike Re: And how many were terrorists? Oh, right, zero. (276 comments)

Oddly enough, it's only when the guns are solely in the hands of the mass murderers that kill counts ever breach the 5 count. Anytime other guns are present the kill count is almost always kept under 4

FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

ravenshrike Re: Media blackout (556 comments)

AFAIK not one of the five named as sleeping with Quinn ever denied it. One had even admitted it. As the last time I payed attention there was legal action ongoing the lack of denial has interesting implications. In any case, Quinngate never would have turned into Gamergate had the gaming press not turned their Cursed Shotgun of Moral Outrage+1(Wielders must act like the dumbest Paladin trope on crusade with no regard to the injury afflicted on party members) on the entire gaming population in a piss poor attempt at social engineering.

MIT Removes Online Physics Lectures and Courses By Walter Lewin

ravenshrike Re: Just wondering... (416 comments)

The issue with the Nazi medical experiments is that their methodology was utter shite. This means that figuring out what data is good vs what data is bad would be very difficult to say the least. You will see that we had no problem using the data from Unit 731. Why? Because they actually understood the scientific method.

French Publishers Prepare Lawsuit Against Adblock Plus

ravenshrike Re: The anti-French jokes are on you (699 comments)

Bring your aristos back and we'll chat. Y'all killed off the only competent people you had running the country. Well, you did bring in a rather promising Corsican, but he had to go and piss off the British.

French Publishers Prepare Lawsuit Against Adblock Plus

ravenshrike Re: Have the Germans threaten to invade (699 comments)

The French military fares well. The French high command however sucks donkey dick during the day and llama dick during the evening, except on Sundays where it is a steady helping of duck dick.

Man Caught Trying To Sell Plans For New Aircraft Carrier

ravenshrike Re: Standard FBI followup (388 comments)

This base canard again? To anyone paying attention, the only civilians on scene were the guys in the van. Which the guys in the chopper had no way of knowing they weren't connected to the guys carrying AKs and RPGs towards the marine component several blocks away.

Bounties vs. Extreme Internet Harassment

ravenshrike Re: It Remains a Journalism Scandal. Deal With It. (716 comments)

At least one of the so accused has admitted sleeping with her. Moreover, while ostensibly he did not sleep with her until after her game was mentioned, it has been shown that he was a close friend prior. Either way a breach of ethics.

Bounties vs. Extreme Internet Harassment

ravenshrike Re: Yes that is exactly what feminist women want. (716 comments)

Correct they are males. Would you care to guess one of the primary effects of testosterone? That's right, increased aggression. More germane to the discussion is that while you're average mentally ill person is not dangerous, that doesn't change the fact that every mass murderer in the past 30 years in the US was either obviously batshit crazy or a sociopathic terrorist of some form. Or employed by an alphabet agency

NPR: '80s Ads Are Responsible For the Lack of Women Coders

ravenshrike Re: 1..2..3 before SJW (786 comments)

Sorry, but when someone, no matter their gender, asks me a question as vague as 'what is that' while pointing at my phone I'm not gonna assume they're asking which version of Android the phone is running. Instead I will assume lcd status of the questioner in regards to the object in question.

Texas Ebola Patient Dies

ravenshrike Re: The Conservative Option (487 comments)

Actually really easy to spread for ISIS with a group of people willing to die for the cause. One person gets infected in liberia on purpose by drinking some infected blood. He then gets his ass to mexico, where 5 to 10 people wait for him to become symptomatic and then use his bliod to infect themselves. They get their asses across the border to our 5 biggest cities where other groups await to infect themselves and then dump infected fluis across the city and infecting the homeless or using needles and then passing them among the drug using population.. Then getting sick and dying themselves.

35,000 Walrus Come Ashore In Alaska

ravenshrike Re: The problem with double standards. (292 comments)

Bullshit. Saying green tech will help in any of the catastrophic models is like saying pissing on a house fire will put it out. Now, in the non-catastrophic models, green tech can help, but then it also won't be too hard for humanity to adapt to any changes. As such you would never gain the political will needed to implement said tech in India or China thus making the point moot.

35,000 Walrus Come Ashore In Alaska

ravenshrike Re: The problem with double standards. (292 comments)

if you want people to actually respect your pisition, then you should act like the realities of your position demand. In the case of AGW catastrophism that requires one of three positions. One, push for massive amounts of research into large scale carbon sequestration or other terraforming techniques. Two, call for the extinction of 80% of humanity. Three demand the entire world follow the living standard of a North Korean peasant. Those are your only three options to actually solving the situation. Everything else is just you slapping your dick in peoples faces.

The $1,200 DIY Gunsmithing Machine

ravenshrike Re: the solution: (651 comments)

No. Well, you're right about the British actions, as technically speaking the shot heard round the world was fired in defence of the colonists keeping their ammo and powder. You are wrong about the rest. There were plenty if anti-black and anti-poor gun control laws passed post Civil War, the most famous probably being the New York Sullivan Act.

The $1,200 DIY Gunsmithing Machine

ravenshrike Re: Homicides up by 50% in the UK (651 comments)

Of course total homicide rates in the US actually dropped faster over the ten years following the PAM laws, but lets not let reality impact your cherry picking of statistics shall we. Then there's the fact that the UK only counts something as a homicide with a court conviction.
