Yeah, I know Jenny McCarthy's name too. That doesn't mean she isn't a pile of shit.

rebelwarlock Images are broken (63 comments)

I actually tried to read the article, but their images which are supposedly irrefutable proof are all broken. Good job, geniuses.

An Algorithm to End the Lines for Ice at Burning Man

rebelwarlock I don't care about Burning Man (341 comments)

I'm just here to read the comments about what an utter piece of shit Bennet Hasselhoff is. Seriously, Ben 10 is the least qualified person to write about anything. I'd rather ask a hobo for advice, because at least then I'd be asking and not assaulted with random horseshit from Chris Benoit.

Living On a Carbon Budget: The End of Recreation As We Know It?

rebelwarlock Stop owning cars (652 comments)

That would solve so many problems. Never going to happen, but since we're talking about making people do silly bullshit because it's cheaper, let's make a list:

- Don't have any pets. They aren't strictly necessary anyway. Sure, they improve our quality of life and many studies show they can increase our lifespan, but fuck that noise.
- Only eat Government Mandated Nutrient Paste. Taste receptors? What are you, a hedonist?
- No more chairs, sofas, etc. You shouldn't be relaxing anyway. Any time spent not working is wasted, and you can work standing. Speaking of which...
- Observe Government Mandated Sleeping Hours. We need you to sleep the exact minimum amount of time to not be worthless.

I could go on, but why bother? This guy is such a complete moron, he probably doesn't even realize my list isn't a collection of sincere advice.

First Birth From Human Womb Transplant

rebelwarlock What? (120 comments)

This summary makes no sense.

It is thought the birth occurred within the last month after doctors transplanted wombs into several women who had a rare genetic condition that meant they were born without their own womb.

So did it, or didn't it? How do you not know when the birth took place?

Experiment Shows Stylized Rendering Enhances Presence In Immersive AR

rebelwarlock Re:Porn ... (75 comments)

Everything will be used for porn. That doesn't make it a bad thing. Technology has been driven in large part by sex, and will continue to be. If people think something can be used for porn, they'll put more money into it, and then you can use it for other things too.

Tetris To Be Made Into a Live Action Film

rebelwarlock Why? (137 comments)

I don't... is there really nothing better that could be turned into a film? A good book, or perhaps even an original script? This seems like one of those films that should only be created when literally every other possible idea has already been done a few dozen times.

How Our Botched Understanding of "Science" Ruins Everything

U2 and Apple Collaborate On 'Non-Piratable, Interactive Format For Music'

rebelwarlock Fuck your interactivity (358 comments)

The "non-piratable" bit has been beaten to death by the other commenters already, so I won't bother with it. Instead, let's look at the other part: "interactive". No, I don't want to interact with the fucking music, Bono. I want to put on the music and have an epic soundtrack to my life. The only reason you think full albums are boring is that your music is boring.

TigerDirect.com blocking international access during black friday.

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  about a year ago

rebelwarlock (1319465) writes "If you live outside the US and want to do some shopping from TigerDirect this weekend, you're out of luck. International visitors are currently being greeted by an "Access Denied" message when trying to visit any page on the server. They have been deleting the complaints left by international users on their Facebook page, but complaints left as comments on their own posts are still showing up. The excuse? "Our international servers are down." Of course they are."

Antivirus Founder, John McAfee arrested in Belize

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  more than 2 years ago

rebelwarlock (1319465) writes "McAfee lives in Belize and he says that he has become a target of the Gang Suppression Unit. He says the GSU came busting into his research facility in Orange Walk, killed his dog, took his passport, handcuffed him and arrested him on a bogus weapons charge. McAfee says he’s a victim because he didn’t donate money to a known U.D.P. Orange Walk politician."
