Marijuana Legalized In Oregon, Alaska, and Washington DC

shiftless Re:They're thinkin' Big! (588 comments)

Only a fucking moron whines about "liberals" or "tea baggers" or "GOP", while cheering for his own red or blue team. If you think any of these politicians have YOUR best interests in mind, then it is you who are, quote, "fucking stupid."

Marijuana Legalized In Oregon, Alaska, and Washington DC

shiftless Re:They're thinkin' Big! (588 comments)

The "small government" teabaggers want to make all sorts of things illegal, including things that the government should have no say in such as gay marriage.

No they don't, dumb fuck.

If this Big Government didn't exist, then marijuana would not have been made illegal in the first place, would it, you fucking moron?

Solving the Mystery of Declining Female CS Enrollment

shiftless Re:Boys are naturally curious... (608 comments)

The trend is for people like you to shit on the lives of women by teaching them that they aren't allowed to be curious, and punishing them when they are.

Oh just shut the fuck up.

Women aren't curious about your pathetic computer system for one reason only: because it's a worthless piece of shit. Whether it's running Windows, Linux, or iOS is irrelevant: THEY ARE ALL GARBAGE, and you're an asshole for trying to get more people involved with your SHIT. No woman in her right mind wants to fuck around with C++ or any of that other bullshit that you think is so glorious and wonderful. In fact, most women would rather have their eyeballs gouged out with a spoon. Instead of crying about it or blaming "misogynists," how about inventing something wonderful that an intelligent woman actually wants to participate in? Until then, take your compiler and your Linux Mint and shove it up your asshole sideways.

Google Changes 'To Fight Piracy' By Highlighting Legal Sites

shiftless Re:google is a search engine (160 comments)

Society does. Society makes laws,

Wrong, asshole. The bankers and the corporate lobbyists are the ones who make laws.

and people are expected to follow those laws, whether or not they believe in them personally, or face the consequences. If they disagree, they should get the laws changed, and not simply break them.

Wrong, asshole.

I will download whatever I please, freely, because FUCK YOU--that's why. And there isn't shit you can do about it.

Positive Ebola Test In Second Texas Health Worker

shiftless Re:Just tell me (463 comments)

imple. because those persons can go to a third country and then travel from there. it creates an impetus for persons from West Africa to simply try to evade such controls. this would of course worsen the situation, not improve it.

You're a moron. Stop repeating idiotic government propaganda.

The reason the flights aren't being stopped is because the government WANTS this virus to spread.

Technological Solution For Texting While Driving Struggles For Traction

shiftless Re:A solution in search of a problem... (326 comments)

"As a frequent pedestrian and bicyclist, I am disgusted by your logic."

As a patriot, I'd disgusted by your cowardice.

"Next you'll argue that the penalties for DUI are too strict."

Driving a vehicle after drinking a beer or two should not be a crime. And wasn't really a crime, back when this country used to be great. Unfortunately it's been overrun by sissies like you who expect to remain perfectly safe and secure at all times.

Text While Driving In Long Island and Have Your Phone Disabled

shiftless Re:Has too many problems (364 comments)

No, the first offense should be a $5000.00 fine, the second offense should be a $10000.00 fine and loss of your license for one year, third offense should be $10000.00 fine, 6 months in jail, and permanent loss of your license.

That's all fucktards such as yourself understand, isn't it? Crime and punishment. There isn't a problem in America today that excessively large fines and/or lifetime imprisonment won't fix, amirite?

Look in the mirror: YOU are what's wrong with this country.

I am forced by circumstances to commute 100 miles a day,

No you aren't, shit for brains. You CHOSE to drive so much. News flash: DRIVING IS DANGEROUS. If you don't like it, stop driving. Those are your options. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure YOUR safety on the road.

Text While Driving In Long Island and Have Your Phone Disabled

shiftless Re:Do you REALLY need that text message? (364 comments)

Because you almost certainly don't need the information that moment and too many people can't resist the temptation to text while driving.

It's not your job to tell me what I "need" or don't need. I will decide that for myself.

You'll survive without the text and as a result so will some other people.

No, I will survive with the text, and so will you and everyone else, as much as it might make your pussy hurt.

Good for you but that doesn't establish any compelling need for you to receive or send a text message while driving.

I do not have to explain or justify my actions to you or to anyone else.

I'm willing to be convinced but "because I want to" isn't a good enough argument for me given the safety issues involved.

Nobody is interested in trying to convince you of anything. Your opinion is irrelevant.

Do you stop at stop lights even when there is no traffic?


Sometimes part of living in a civil society is dealing with a little personal inconvenience to ensure safety and order.

Fuck you and fuck your "civil" society. If you are too much of an irresponsible coward to live your life without Big Brother holding your hand every step of the way, that's YOUR problem...not mine.

Maybe you are the responsible one (I have not reason to doubt it) but since the rest of us have no way to be sure of that you might have to deal with having to wait for that text message to arrive.

Nope. I will continue texting and there is nothing you can do about it, pussy.

People who text while driving are every bit as dangerous as people who drink and drive.

You are a moron.

There are plenty of studies that support this.

Yes, there are studies out there which will support any conclusion that a useful idiot such as yourself wishes to reach.

While anecdotal, I actually know more people who have been in accidents caused by distracted (texting) driving than by drunk drivers.

Maybe you should spend more time practicing defensive driving techniques, and/or move out of whatever shithole you reside in.

Texting is the leading cause of death for teen drivers.

Bullshit. The leading cause of death for teen drivers is being a teen driver.

Uber Now Blocked All Over Germany

shiftless Re:Anti-competitive behavior is a big deal (312 comments)

No, dumb ass.

Keep in mind they would not be facing these injunctions if they were playing by the same rules as the competition.

Keep in mind that the world would be 10,000,000x better place if these FUCKING STUPID "RULES", and the dumb asses who cheer for them, did not exist.

It is kinda like a street vender skipping on sales tax, of course they can offer lower prices if they do not have to pay taxes, but that is pretty unfair to the stores that are collecting it.

You know what's really unfair? TAXATION. It's equivalent to armed robbery. Only the stupid pay taxes.

The Argument For a Hypersonic Missile Testing Ban

shiftless Fuck these hypocrites (322 comments)

This is all noise, signifying nothing. Russia and China have already developed potent supersonic missiles. As a result, most of the U.S. fleet will be sitting on the ocean floor within 2-3 years of our aggressive provocation of World War 3. As it should be. Weapons testing bans are for fags.

Put A Red Cross PSA In Front Of the ISIS Beheading Video

Why does this belong on Slashdot?

Because it's important, imbecile. If you don't like it, LEAVE.


Obviously this reduces the incentive for terrorist groups to post such content, by shrinking their audience,

It "obviously" does no such thing, fucktard, and that you are sure it "obviously" does is why you are stupid.

FCC Warned Not To Take Actions a Republican-Led FCC Would Dislike

shiftless Here's a free clue (338 comments)

nd don't even try to guess how I vote. OTOH, I actual watch CSPAN, read bills, and find the context for any statement a politician make that is reported in the media.

And you're wasting your time with all of that bullshit, because VOTING DOES NOT WORK.

If you think voting changes anything, you're clueless. But then again we already knew that from reading your "Republican vs Democrats" bullshit. Fact: BOTH RED AND BLUE TEAMS ARE WORKING AGAINST YOU.

Linus Torvalds: 'I Still Want the Desktop'

shiftless Re:Let's face it: desktop Linux is a piece of shit (727 comments)

I'm not mocking, but people's reaction depends on how you phrase your argument.

There is not an argument I can phrase in any way which will result in Linux Mint, Ubuntu, or any of these other idiots pulling their heads out of their assholes. They are determinated to be mediocre dipshits.

Yours looked reasonable until the third paragraph, but turned into a flame itself after that.

So fucking what? If these fucktards can't figure out how to do a good job, they deserved to get flamed every day until they give up programming and go back to mopping floors.

I am always complaining about certain Linux issues on more technical forums than this one, but I think I am nevertheless respected for making my points effectively.

What I want is excellence, not "respect", from some useless dipshits who don't understand what either of those words even mean. What the fuck good is it to be "respected" for your opinions, if nothing ever changes?

There is indeed a lot wrong with Linux (it's certainly not "gold"); but I use it because the alternatives are even worse IMHO.

So do I. I use Linux only because the alternatives are worse. Pretty sad statement about the current pathetic state of computing, isn't it?

Scientists Who Smuggle Radioactive Materials

shiftless Re:Fear Mongering continued (66 comments)

very strange and outright deranged opinion

What I just told you is the truth. If your head is shoved too far up your own asshole to understand it, that is a sign you are delusional, not mine.

Anyone who trust the U.S. government's side of the story is a fucking idiot. Full stop.

I'm sure there's plenty of footage on the net of building fires if you want to apply some reality instead of making shit up.

Show me a video of ONE building which collapsed like WTC7, because of an out of control fire.

Scientists Who Smuggle Radioactive Materials

shiftless Re:Fear Mongering continued (66 comments)

Buildings do not fall at free fall speed into their own footprint because of a "fire." It does not happen, ever. And furthermore, news organizations do not announce the collapse of said building 20 minutes in advance, unless they already planned for it to fall. Pull your head out of your asshole and stop being a useful idiot. 9/11 was perpetrated by the U.S. Government. Failing to realize this FACT does not make you smart, it makes you a naive fool.

I notice you didn't mention the "aircraft" in Pennsylvania, did you? The one that supposedly hit the ground so fast all it left was a smoking crater, with no wreckage because it all vaporized on impact? Only a clueless, naive shit like yourself (the average idiot American) would believe such an obvious lie.

Have you given up on your idiotic "Flight 93 crashed in a Pennsylvania field" or "Building 7 collapsed at free fall speed due to fire damage" conspiracy theories?

Jeff Bezos finds Apollo 11 engines on seabed; plans to recover

shiftless shiftless writes  |  more than 2 years ago

shiftless (410350) writes "From the story:

Jeff Bezos, Amazon's adventurous CEO, says his organization has found the F-1 rockets used briefly by Apollo 11 and he wants to salvage them for American museums.

"A year or so ago, I started to wonder, with the right team of undersea pros, could we find and potentially recover the F-1 engines that started mankind's mission to the moon?" he said in a statement. "I'm excited to report that, using state-of-the-art deep sea sonar, the team has found the Apollo 11 engines lying 14,000 feet below the surface, and we're making plans to attempt to raise one or more of them from the ocean floor.""
