Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

sjwt Re:A willingness to fight (579 comments)

"Bigotry is a state of mind where a person views other groups with fear, distrust, prejudice or hatred solely on the basis of ethnicity, race, religion, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or other group characteristics."

I have no fear, distrust, hatred or prejudice (prejudice - preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.)

Its not textbook bigotry, please look up things before saying such. Over the last 20 odd years, it seems we have ended up with a society where a man can not express any disconnect or negative option against a women. Pitty the same level of responsibility is never expected from women, if you end up empowering a group in society without giving them any of the responsibilities that are expected from the others in equal positions, you are going to have a bad time.

Australian Consumer Watchdog Takes Valve To Court

sjwt Re:Welcome to Australia, Ferengi. (139 comments)

More often than not its to counter the large amount of incorrect information that is printed on everything as well as pops up on screen because they fail to localize the release properly, and its just cheaper to slip in a piece of paper.. how ever this lazy application to localization leads to the same things being done for digital releases, except hang no.. no piece of paper..

Should police have cameras recording their work at all times?

sjwt Re:"Accidentally" (455 comments)

Not quite sure how you think these things work, they look for you either driving an unregistered or stolen car, or if the registered owner of the vehicle has a warrant on them or has an expired license, if these conditions are true, they check the car.

If you are driving under those conditions, expect to be pulled up, only one of them isnt a crime (and thats only if the owner if vehicle i not the driver)

New Nail Polish Alerts Wearers To Date Rape Drugs

sjwt Re:I wish we didn't need something like this (595 comments)

Wow, way to totally miss the point...

We can't police our own, unless we first admit that 'our own' is EVERYONE.

humans are human, be that male or female, they both have creepy bastards, and focusing on just 1/2 of them is not going to solve anything, due to the strange coincidence that most of the creepy bastards and bitches where abused themselves.

Men abuse Humans.
Women abuse Humans.

Those humans can be male, female, young, old, friends, family, strangers.

Its time to move past 'Dirty old men' or 'isolated troublesome teen' or what ever group is getting singled out.

sjwt Re:I wish we didn't need something like this (595 comments)

Lets see..
False rape claims and 'honor councils' leading men to just give up on women all together
http://washingtonexaminer.com/...

43% of men have been ''Raped'' under what the feminist movement keeps trying to push a rape claim as.
http://time.com/37337/nearly-h...

Would you like to take a rethink if its 'Men are creepy bastards' or 'Humans are creepy ass bastards and bitches'

Cause of Global Warming 'Hiatus' Found Deep In the Atlantic

sjwt Re:Every week there's a new explanation of the hia (465 comments)

The missing news story here..

"Assumptions about the Ocean heat convection currents were wrong, they do not just shut down when temperatures rise a little"

I mean who would've thought that a large body of water would still try and maintain a thermodynamic balance..

Yup, like the recent one about men not being able to 'be alone with their own thouhgs'..

That same data can also read 'Men, more willing to put up with pain' or 'Men, more curious and want to know what they may experience'

One Trillion Bq Released By Nuclear Debris Removal At Fukushima So Far

sjwt and? (190 comments)

Now lets use my favourite dosage level, and all radiation related matters should be in the everyday standard of BED (Banana Equivalent Dose)

We are talking about an exposure of 8,461,539 KG's of Bananas. Or about One 17th the level that Bananas expose humans to in a year. (@140Bqs per KG)

Did you know that Humans are radioactive and rated at about 100Bqs per KG, so we are talking about a release of radiation equal to about 11 million KGS of ppl or less than what the ppl in a city with around 180,000 population releases from the ppl alone.

Neanderthals Ate Their Veggies

sjwt Re:That's not what my crossfit instructor told me! (151 comments)

Well the article does state 'The tests revealed that the poop “clearly” contained high proportions of cholesterol and coprostanol from eating meat'.
Add in that they are unwilling to do a percentage analysis says either there methods are not refined enough to do so or the results are not impressive enough to grab the headline.

sjwt Lets list other free energy communication scams.. (448 comments)

Man, this is good to see, here is another one to hit up,
  It claims to allow you to receive and create an auditable sound of most AM broadcasts

It openly states no battery or power source is needed other then the ambient radio signals.. total bull shit obvisouly

Please for the love of god ppl, get a clue, free energy claims are 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999% likely BS, but read what is being written, no 'free energy' here, just the claim of converting energy.

Mt. Gox CEO Returns To Twitter, Enrages Burned Investors

It is Twitter, not the international apology bulletin board.

If you are following this guy hoping he will say sorry and wire you part payments of bitcoins, then you have sadly misunderstood what Twitter is used for.

CSRIO - Accelerating our dragon R&D program

sjwt sjwt writes  |  about 8 months ago

sjwt (161428) writes "In some countries your government research laboratories might be held back from performing some types of programs due to political vote buying reasons, not hear in Australia.. Full steam ahead for Dragon Research!!

From the official CSRIO Blog comes..
"Over the past 87 odd years we have not been able to create a dragon or dragon eggs. We have sighted an eastern bearded dragon at one of our telescopes, observed dragonflies and even measured body temperatures of the mallee dragon. But our work has never ventured into dragons of the mythical, fire breathing variety.""

Ask Slashdot: Hope left for /.?

sjwt sjwt writes  |  about a year ago

sjwt (161428) writes "So, after the recent story about publishing legal advice given by someone with a master's degree in mathematics that contradicts the advice given by a law professor I am left wondering if any hope is left for /.

It is not often I see a major story on /. before I see it in a bottom rung news feed such as news.com.au and at worst its only 1 day behind, but /. can lag by days if not weeks. We see articles that read more like paid ads, and often the "summary" that is submitted in stories is just a copy past with no effort put in, is any hope left?"

Australian Government releases report into IT Price Fixing.

sjwt sjwt writes  |  about a year ago

sjwt (161428) writes "It's been a long time since anyone on the web in Australia no matter how computer literate they are even bothered to question the simple statement 'Do we in Australia pay too much for Digital copies', it has always been an resounding 'Yes'. Labor MP Ed Husic's report into IT prices is out, and it does not pull punches.

From 116% for Ebooks to 184% for games, everywhere you look it has become commonplace to be charged much more for living in Australia, and now the government report issued today with a number of recommendations including removing import restrictions in the Copyright Act for private individuals, a right of resale on digital goods and even the possibility of outlawing geoblocking. This could be quite a win for Australian consumers."

sjwt sjwt writes  |  more than 2 years ago

sjwt (161428) writes "Using a newer self developed high powered ion cannon, Twin Creeks a new start up company promises to produce solar cells that at 20um thick, 1/10th the current stranded thickness, and also flexible. After accounting for the reduction of wast silicon and the new production techniques they state a cost of 40 cents per watt compare this to the current $1.09 per watt and this could push solar cells into a competitive place against fossil fuels."
