Alleged Satellite Photo Says Ukraine Shootdown of MH17

sjwt Re:People tend to believe their first media (340 comments)

Well, when you leave the good old soviet union, and end up in a country that is war focused, leading attack after attack all around the world, in instances against legitimate elected governments and supplying training, equipment and funding to rebel fighters with doggy ethics at best..

then your own country gets roasted for supporting rebels who opposed an illegal government overthrow...

Well I would question everything that government had to say too.

The Correct Response To Photo Hack Victim-Blamers

sjwt blarhblarhblarh... (622 comments)

Don't blame the victim, that is unless the victim is male, then go for it.. They should apologize for what happened..

http://www.examiner.com/articl...
"like to apologize to everybody ... Portland, the fans, the organization. It was very embarrassing," Oden told reporters. "It was something that happened over a year and a half ago. I'm very sorry, and I'm definitely embarrassed for my family and everybody. It was a lady friend who I was having a relationship with, and it was just for her. It was definitely meant to keep private,"

http://www.rantsports.com/nba/...
"Yes Burke can be considered a victim in this situation. It’s an unfortunate development for the talented guard, but that’s why you simply keep your junk away from cameras."

If Feminists want equality, they need to either hold themselves to the same standards that society seems to hold men to, or start dealing with all issues that fall under equality, not just playing the victim card for the most amount of sympathy.

Only Two States Have Rules To Prevent Cheating On Computerized Tests

sjwt Re:I'm sorry... (95 comments)

The person was caught, Im taking a guess it was already against the law.. And Id say he either a) didn't leave any evidence when the inspectors came a knocking or b) used that lovely tool of regulation the bribe..

seriously, thats such a stupid point that would only hold if the state was advising him to do it..

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.

False rape claims and 'honor councils' leading men to just give up on women all together

43% of men have been ''Raped'' under what the feminist movement keeps trying to push a rape claim as.

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

CSRIO - Accelerating our dragon R&D program

sjwt sjwt writes  |  about a year 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."

A new startup offers to halve the production costs of solar cells

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."
