Washington Dancers Sue To Prevent Identity Disclosure

rezme Re:Fuck Evangelical Christians (461 comments)

Oh look everyone! It's False Equivalency Man!! These two situations have nothing in common. One involves a rich guy donating money to a political cause that suppresses the rights of others. The other is a bunch of women just trying to earn a living using one of the options available to them. The strippers don't have an axe to grind, and just want to do their jobs without being harassed by stiff penised evangelicals (outside of work anyway)

Washington Dancers Sue To Prevent Identity Disclosure

rezme Re:Open records isn't the issue here (461 comments)

I'm willing to bet that the law requiring them to register probably came from the brains of jokers like this in the first place. "If they have to register the fact that they take their clothes off for money, those harlots will think twice about stripping for money!"... Also, I don't doubt that his "desire to pray for them" might be in fact, a way to shame them into quitting their jobs lest they become publicly exposed (nyuk nyuk nyuk). Either that or he's a little perv wanting to stalk them... Honestly with the fundamentalists, it's a toss up either way.

Washington Dancers Sue To Prevent Identity Disclosure

rezme Re:I can't see the legitmiacy here. (461 comments)

I think he wants to "pray" for them individually... outside their residence's bedroom windows... naked from the waist down... atoning FURIOUSLY for their sins.

Colleges Face New 'Gainful Employment' Regulations For Student Loans

rezme Re:That's a howler (331 comments)

Honestly I think even the measure being considered doesn't go far enough. Sure, it'll protect future students, but what about those of us who are currently feeling the penetration of the long thick phallus of Sallie Mae after having gotten a degree from one of these colleges.

Colleges Face New 'Gainful Employment' Regulations For Student Loans

rezme Re:That's a howler (331 comments)

In your haste to make a "communism" reference, you missed: In order to receive federal student aid, the law requires that most for-profit programs, regardless of credential level, and most non-degree programs at non-profit and public institutions, including community colleges, prepare students for "gainful employment in a recognized occupation"

Chimpanzee "Personhood" Is Back In Court

rezme Re:Does that mean they'll get to vote? (385 comments)

Hahahahaha, you really think that's what corporate personhood is about? The ability to sue them? That's unbelievably cute. I could just put you in my pocket. Let me give you a hint, it was about the ability to make political donations in the name of a corporation.

Why America Won't Match Sweden's Cheap, Fast, Competitive Internet Services

rezme Re:not complicated...monopology (346 comments)

So you either subsidize it with your taxes (a fixed amount) or you subsidize it by getting raped by the ISP (an amount that can change when the CEO farts). Also, how many of your "5+ choices" are top tier providers? If the answer is 1, then you're dealing with a monopoly. If there's only one car company that makes highway capable vehicles, and everyone else is manufacturing golf carts, then they're hardly the same thing. Even if the answer is 2, then it's a duopoly because there still won't be competition, as history shows that those circumstances lead to collusion, not competition.

Not referring to the iphone users specifically, but rather the rest of us armchair engineers criticizing the design.

Users Report Warping of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

rezme Re:Not just iPhone (421 comments)

I think for most people, this is a difference without distinction. There may be differences in the engineering definition of stress vs strain, but for the average layman looking at this problem it's essentially the same thing. Either way, Apple failed to account for the stress/strain that an average user would put on the phone.

Users Report Warping of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

rezme Re:Not just iPhone (421 comments)

Yes, I looked at the URL. The key difference here is that the phones of other models that were reported bending were largely "I sat on it" type scenarios (including one asshole who sat on his while it was in a cupholder), while many of the reports I've seen of the iphone 6 have often been in the front pocket. Sure, there were others that said "it spontaneously bent itself" but I'm betting those are "I sat on it, but I really don't want to say that". Yes, all phones bend, and as I qualified if large amounts of stress (or strain as Captain Pedantic in another response would have it) is applied, then they will break and stay that way. My point is that plastic tends to be a more forgiving medium for that kind of abuse than aluminum (or aluminium as another pedant stated).

Users Report Warping of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

rezme Re:Not just iPhone (421 comments)

Other phones bend, but the issue here is that with the iphone's metal case, it doesn't bend back. Plastic, unless subjected to extreme amounts of stress, tends to return to its original shape. Aluminum not so much. The problem isn't the glass, as the phones I've seen bent have glass that is still intact (strangely enough), but rather the metal chassis that Apple has always been so proud of.
