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

Well, you could tell them you know jack all about neurobiology. Given brain formation children are all effectively psychopaths until partway through puberty.

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.

Amazon's eBook Math

ravenshrike Re: Disengenous [sic] (306 comments)

The punk assed bitching over the Hugo's this year, both over the original speaker and the hilarity that was Sad Puppies II shows that you're full of shit. There are maybe 4 authors that are obviously right wing and published by the big 6 in fiction.

After Non-Profit Application Furor, IRS Says It's Lost 2 Years Of Lerner's Email

ravenshrike Re:Except you cannot keeep all on server (372 comments)

Yes, you lost ALL your email. Not just your email to your boss about how Janice down the hall picks her nose and wipes the boogers in Bruce's sandwiches that he eats for lunch while keeping the rest.

When will large-scale IPv6 deployment happen?

ravenshrike Re:Fuck IPv6 (305 comments)

Figure an average 3-4 people per household. Then figure that half the households in the world don't and won't have internet access for the next 5-10 years. Then figure that sooner or later China's gonna actually get smart about their internet censorship and put their entire population behind a NAT anyway(Out of curiosity, why haven't we just done that with an additional 1 number prefix for continent routing rather than this IPv6 shit anyway?)

House Majority Leader Defeated In Primary

ravenshrike Re:hahaha! (932 comments)

Sorry, but there were plenty of scientists who denounced Gally as wrong as well. This is because he was a giant fucking asshole to everyone, including his contemporaries, and completely fucking wrong on quite a few subjects, meteors being but one. Had Gally not been such a giant asshole and also decided that snidely insulting the pope was a bad career move, the church never would have put him on trial in the first place, let alone successfully.

UK Ballistics Scientists: 3D-Printed Guns Are 'of No Use To Anyone'

ravenshrike Re: Untraceable (490 comments)

Wow you're an idiot who wanted entirely too much NCIS. Tracing a gun is generally useless, and ballistic fingerprinting databases have not once been instrumental in solving a crime. Not to mention the science itself is almost certainly hogwash.

Gun Rights Groups Say They Don't Oppose Smart Guns, Just Mandates

ravenshrike Re:Gun grabbers never give up (584 comments)

Clearly a certain marine needs to take a statistics class. As well as pay attention to trends. Namely the trend of more guns in the US over the past 20 years along with a 49% reduction in homicide rates and a 70%+ reduction in other gun crime rates. Yet more guns per capita are in circulation than ever before in the history of the US.
