The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

shikaisi Re:Human nature (571 comments)

The internet usage of the term 'troll' derives not from the mythical Scandinavian beast but from a fishing term - to 'troll' is to drag a baited line behind a slowly moving boat. A troll typically inserts an off-topic, extraneous or inflammatory message or comment into an online forum and sits back and watches the suckers bite. The 'trolls' making the news at the moment are more accurately described as 'wankers.'

California Regulators Tell Ride-Shares No Airport Runs

shikaisi Re:"Safety Requirements"? (314 comments)

As Michael Flanders once said, "It's actually been calculated it is safer to fly than it is to cross the road. Mind you, I gave that up years ago where I live, in Kensington near the air terminal. They have these airline buses whizzing about, you know. I think the drivers have instructions to keep the statistics favourable!"

America 'Has Become a War Zone'

Sheriff Gayer?

Well, fuck, that explains it!

The other sheriff quoted in the article is Sheriff Cox. With names like those, they probably need heavy weaponry to suppress the local mockery.

Don't think that Thailand is unique. It could happen in your country too if you don't take action to prevent it.

So as a follow-up to this success, what other missing body parts will they be growing? Jerry Garcia's middle finger? Heather Mills' leg? Rick Allen's left arm? George W Bush's brain?

Google To Close Its American Moto X Factory

shikaisi Re:High labor cost in US, why ? (154 comments)

Every American is entitled to own a house with three bathrooms and drive five cars.

Well, you can't have that, but if you're an American citizen you are entitled to: a heated kidney-shaped pool, a microwave oven (don't watch the food cook!), a Dyna-Gym (I'll personally demonstrate it in the privacy of your own home), a king-size Titanic unsinkable Molly Brown waterbed with polybendum, a foolproof plan and an airtight alibi, real simulated Indian jewelry, a Gucci shoe tree, a year's supply of antibiotics, a personally autographed picture of Randy Mantooth and Bob Dylan's new unlisted phone number, a beautifully restored 3rd Reich swizzle stick, Rosemary's baby, a dream date in kneepads with Paul Williams, a new Matador, a new mastodon, a Maverick, a Mustang, a Montego, a Mercury Montclair, a Mark IV, a meteor, a Mercedes, an MG, or a Malibu, a Mort Moriarty, a Maserati, a Mack truck, a Mazda, a new Monza, or a moped, a Winnebago--Hell, a herd of Winnebago's we're giving 'em away, or how about a McCulloch chainsaw, a Las Vegas wedding, a Mexican divorce, a solid gold Kama Sutra coffee pot, or a baby's arm holding an apple?

I have a large collection of interesting shots of my life now.

Yeah, I love all the shots of traffic and your rabbit's bedding. Priceless memories there.

Now, if the rabbit had a pancake on its head...

shikaisi Scoring (453 comments)

The main reason we are not ready to meet aliens is that a large proportion of our population would shoot them, just to see how many points they got.

Actual Results of Crimean Secession Vote Leaked

shikaisi Re:well (557 comments)

Russian intelligence operatives along with Spetnaz Russian special forces out of uniform are occupying Ukrainian government offices. They are doing so with the assistance of several prominent Ukrainian oligarchs that backed and supported Yankovitch.

Weird Al is behind this? Now it's beginning to make sense.

Indeed; they also know that the only way to ensure that Russia sells their oil to Europe would be to start a land war in Asia, and as we all should well know, you never want to be involved in a land war in Asia.

SanDisk Announces 4TB SSD, Plans For 8TB Next Year

shikaisi Re: At that speed? (264 comments)

My friend has terabytes of it, no lie. He just has it downloading from file sharing software in the background 24/7. Doesn't even watch most of it. Just has it "just in case he gets horny and has no internet"

For those eventualities, I recommend he tries an alternative device called a "girlfriend".

Bill Gates & Twitter Founders Put "Meatless" Meat To the Test

shikaisi He has the right experience (466 comments)

At least Bill Gates is the man with the right track record here. For decades he's been selling something that looks just like real software and millions of consumers have bought it and not been able to tell the difference.

15 yo boy creates 'Trojan' iPhone tethering app

shikaisi shikaisi writes  |  more than 4 years ago

shikaisi (1816846) writes "Nick Lee designed a Handy Light app which at first glance appeared to allow users to change the colour of their screen. It was charged at less than a dollar to upload on App Store.

However, the app contained a hidden code that allowed people to use their iPhone as a 3G modem."

A portrait of the founder of WikiLeaks

shikaisi shikaisi writes  |  more than 4 years ago

shikaisi (1816846) writes "A rather more balanced and in-depth portrait of Julian Assange than you usually get in the media. "We have values. I am an information activist. You get the information out to the people. We believe a richer intellectual and historical record that is fuller and more accurate is in itself intrinsically good, and gives people the tools to make intelligent decisions.""

South Korea deploys killer robot in DMZ

shikaisi shikaisi writes  |  more than 4 years ago

shikaisi (1816846) writes "Not content with just killing people in computer games, South Korea has gone one better and is deploying remotely controlled sentry robots on the border with the north. According to the article "If the command centre operator cannot identify possible intruders through the robot's audio or video communications system, the operator can order it to fire its gun or 40mm automatic grenade launcher." I hope that word "cannot" instead of "can" is a journalistic error and not a shoot-to-kill policy."
