Peter Diamandis: Technology Is Dissolving National Borders

shiftless Re:Segregation is good people.... (129 comments)

If your culture is harmful to others, it needs to be changed, whether you like it or not. If you won't do it, we'll do it for you.

How about I put a .50 cal round through your face instead, and use your skull as an ashtray?

North Korean Defector Spills Details On the Country's Elite Hacking Force

"Nobody has the right to tell me what I can or can't copy freely. I will continue pirating from now until eternity and nothing a whiny bitch such as yourself can say will stop it. If you don't like it, fuck off and die slowly in a fire, and/or fuck yourself to death with a sword."

Sony Leaks Reveal Hollywood Is Trying To Break DNS

shiftless Congraulations on being a useful idiot. (388 comments)

I saw the previews months ago for that movie and thought to myself "That looks stupid." but now I'm going to go see it anyway. You should really encourage all of your friends to do the same. Blackmail resulting in self-censorship is not something that needs to be encouraged.

You did exactly what you were supposed to do, drone, like the useful idiot you are. Free clue: this isn't a hack or theft, it's a LEAK, and Sony is responsible for it--working hand in hand with the US government. It's a combination of publicity stunt and propaganda rolled into one, which you have allowed yourself to be manipulated by. Congratulations.

EU May Not Unify Its Data Protection Rules After All

shiftless Re:Understandable given the nature of the EU (55 comments)

Places like Alabama couldn't survive without federal support; think of them like Greece.

You know why the US is falling to pieces as we speak? Because it's controlled by clueless fuckwits such as yourself, who are drowning in your own arrogance. Obviously you have never visited Alabama, moron, but please--don't let me stop you from continuing to expose your cluelessness to the world. The average Alabaman has more industry in his little pinky than faggots like you have in your entire body. I'm looking forward to the day when whatever pathetic urban shithole you reside in gets a) nuked to a glowing pile of ash, and/or b) burnt to the fucking ground by the little people you have built an entire lifestyle of stepping on...you piece of shit.

Consumer-Grade SSDs Survive Two Petabytes of Writes

shiftless Re:HDD endurance? (125 comments)

Hold on now, Hairy. I understand (and agree with) your concerns, especially when it comes to garbage like OCZ, but SSD really is the future though. I use my laptop for heavy web browsing with thousands of tabs open in Firefox, and the shitbox would slow down to a crawl with "only" 4 GB and a conventional HD, so for me an SSD was a necessity. I put a Samsung 840 Pro in this thing last year (or was it the year before?) and it has been the best money I've ever spent on computer hardware. According to SMART I'm at 6.8 TB of writes, over 5400 power on hours, and just clicked over 2000 startup cycles, with zero errors or problems of any kind. Many others seem to have had similar positive experiences with these drives. From all indications, this drive will probably last another 10-15+ years easily. The only thing I can see killing it is an EMP burst.

France Wants To Get Rid of Diesel Fuel

shiftless Fuck you (395 comments)

Proper response to such dickhead: Confiscate their truck. That will stop it really quickly.

I got a better idea: how about somebody puts a hot round through your skull instead? My ancestors did not move to this land back in the 1600s just so that pissants like you could tell me what to do, and send armed thugs after me to steal my possessions because you're too much of a fucking pussy to do it yourself. The day is coming when it will be open season on piece of shit fascists like yourself, and I can hardly wait to put a few of you Nazis in the grave myself.

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."

No they don't, dumb fuck.

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.

  "If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so." - Thomas Jefferson

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.

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.

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.""
