Our Education System Is Failing IT

rebelwarlock "In this guy's opinion" (289 comments)

Who is "this guy" and why should we give a shit about his opinion?

Cody Wilson Interview at Reason: Happiness Is a 3D Printed Gun

rebelwarlock Oh what the fuck (206 comments)

I know this sort of shit appeals heavily to basement dwellers, who love hearing "smash the system" because they seem convinced that "the system" is holding them down despite their own lack of marketable skills, but screaming "anarchy" is only cute when Gaige from Borderlands 2 does it. When real life adults do it, they sound like morons or lunatics. But the one thing these people don't understand is that the absolute worst thing that can happen for them is that someone important takes them seriously.

Bug Bounties Don't Help If Bugs Never Run Out

rebelwarlock Re:"you might as well not bother" (235 comments)

That makes even less sense than the rambling original post. Maybe you should go back to complaining about how you got put on spam blacklists.

New Facebook Phone App Lets You Stalk Your Friends

rebelwarlock What a bunch of bullshit (61 comments)

If you use an app that's made for the specific purpose of telling you when your friends who also have that app are nearby, it will tell your friends that you're nearby! Audible fucking gasp! This has got to be the dumbest anti-facebook nonsense I've ever seen.

Bug Bounties Don't Help If Bugs Never Run Out

rebelwarlock "you might as well not bother" (235 comments)

I'm gonna have to stop you right there, because your entire premise is retarded. If someone finds a bug in your software, and you don't bother to fix it, you are intentionally keeping the software less secure than it could be. That should be criminal, but I'd be satisfied with Ben 10 not being allowed to have a blog on slashdot anymore.

Fixed that for you.

Jenny McCarthy: "I Am Not Anti-Vaccine'"

rebelwarlock Re:I find it interesting... (588 comments)

Luckily, everyone used up their mod points upvoting the cock holster remark, so no one was left to downvote your idiocy into oblivion when you posted as AC, then logged back in and upvoted your own dumbass opinion.

Australia Declares Homeopathy Nonsense, Urges Doctors to Inform Patients

rebelwarlock Re:diminished placebo effect (408 comments)

Let me see if I understand this correctly. You want people to remain ignorant so that they can trick themselves into thinking homeopathic treatments work. I'm too terrified by the prospect to even come up with a clever insult.

How the Internet Is Taking Away America's Religion

rebelwarlock "Taking away" (1037 comments)

The internet isn't "taking away" anything. Stop trying to make it sound like an aggressive action. People can't be forced to give up their religion. Even if you beat it out of them, all you can really do, at best, is prevent them from practicing it when people are looking at them. But I suppose "How the internet is convincing people to be less religious" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

British Domain Registrar Offers 'No Transfer Fees,' Charges Transfer Fee

rebelwarlock My favorite part of the company's repsonse (77 comments)

"This change to our product is not directly customer impacting..."

It's almost as if by transferring your domain away, you're no longer a customer!

It's Time To Bring Pseudoscience Into the Science Classroom

rebelwarlock Only works if the teacher isn't the one in three (470 comments)

When I was in high school, one of our teachers told us voodoo magic was real, and that contrary to popular belief, it would work on you even if you didn't believe in it. Try to make teachers talk about astrology and you'll end up with them going around the classroom with shit like, "That's because you're a Virgo".

Creating "Homo Minutus" — a Benchtop Human To Test Drugs

rebelwarlock Autoplaying bullshit? (49 comments)

If you want to have a lame April Fool's joke, that's fine, but done have autoplaying beeping. There's no purpose for that, other than enticing people to track you down and beat you with a rusty pipe.

Contact Lenses With Infrared Vision?

rebelwarlock Not practical as contact lenses (99 comments)

Infrared essentially blocks out normal vision. While this may be useful as wearable computing, it wouldn't be useful if you had to poke around in your eye every time you needed to switch back to normal vision.

Ultima Online Devs Building Player-Run MMORPG

rebelwarlock So, DayZ? (75 comments)

This looks like DayZ, but with magic. Where as DayZ seems to have a love-it-or-hate-it vibe, this just looks lame.

Gunshot Victims To Be Part of "Suspended Animation" Trials

rebelwarlock Pretty simple in theory (357 comments)

I have to wonder why this hasn't been done sooner. We've known of the benefits of cooling the body before surgery, as outlined in the article. In fact, I'm pretty sure we've been doing it since the 50s. That being the case, why has it taken so long to get to this point?

TigerDirect.com blocking international access during black friday.

rebelwarlock rebelwarlock writes  |  about 5 months 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  |  about 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."
