Ebola Has Made It To the United States

slashmydots Re:Fristy Pawst! (445 comments)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who realized the truth. If Africans would grow the fuck up and stop lying, cheating, and stealing from each other they'd have an actual society.

Ebola Has Made It To the United States

slashmydots Re:Completely Contained? (445 comments)

Ah, but you're forgetting...everyone on the plane is infected with being a fucking idiot for going to West Africa and then traveling.

Ebola Has Made It To the United States

slashmydots it will never spread (445 comments)

If you know the exact methods with which Ebola spreads, you would know that it would never, ever spread in the US. We're too civilized and have too good of an infrastructure mixed with the people being too intelligent. It's practically an STD. All you need to do to not catch Ebola is not kiss or have sex or get blood on you from someone who's infected. That's it! Oh, and don't handle their bodies with your bare hands. Oh, and maybe don't break into a quarantine zone and fucking free all the damn infected people. There isn't a terribly long incubation period either for ebola. Ask any doctor about the golden rule. Not airborne, not a problem. If it can live on surfaces, places can close, people can wash their hands, and you can alcohol the hell out of everything everywhere constantly for cheap.
It's really a shame Nigeria wasn't wiped out though. Pirates and scammers and their corrupt governments would be wiped out and their society could start over without all those problems. 50 years later they'd have a better economy than the last 100 years.

Robotic Taster Will Judge 'Real Thai Food'

slashmydots Re:Moron (102 comments)

Nobody has ever won a Michelin Star by lighting someone's mouth on fire so they can barely finish the dish. That is a fact.

Robotic Taster Will Judge 'Real Thai Food'

slashmydots Re:Moron (102 comments)

There is no flavor of spicy. Your tongue can't sense spicy. It's just a chemical that makes your mouth feel like it's on fire. People who are stupid enough to keep eating peppers stop feeling it as much and then can sort of taste the actual flavor. Otherwise peppers actually cover up the flavor. So people who like their mouth to work properly, didn't nuke all their taste buds, and like their digestive system to work properly don't add peppers to their dish in the first place.

Robotic Taster Will Judge 'Real Thai Food'

slashmydots Re:Moron (102 comments)

See what's happening here is your brain and your tongue are broken. Peppers developed a do-not-eat-me defense of making them burn your mouth so you wouldn't eat them. All animals including moderately intelligent apes stay away from peppers because of this but not you. You should have your brain checked out.

Microsoft's Asimov System To Monitor Users' Machines In Real Time

slashmydots just ask anyone! (263 comments)

They're starting over from the drawing board to see how humans use computers? Are you fucking kidding me? Just design it so it doesn't suck. They could replace their AI system with 1 individual person who isn't an idiot. Ask any single computer user that works in IT if they should have removed the start menu and replaced it with a touch-friendly interface with no options. Ask anyone if they should have gotten rid of the red X to close that existed in Windows 3.1 through 7. Ask anyone if they even want to touch their PC (and don't ask stupid people). I could sit down and design an OS interface myself that would crush Windows 8 and I'm not a team of experts. They don't even need one!

Man Walks Past Security Screening Staring At iPad, Causing Airport Evacuation

slashmydots why not post a guard? (214 comments)

Seriously, there is nobody watching the exit to see if people walk the wrong direction through it and they had to catch him on CCTV? Plus, shouldn't they be watching Apple fans for explosive outbursts and opinionated hate speech that makes them a danger to everyone around them? Because that's how they are everywhere else.

Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

slashmydots another idea (473 comments)

Maaaaaybe they themselves should switch to renewable energy sources, which after 7-10 years turns into a magic free money generator, and then individuals wouldn't all have to switch themselves.

LTE Upgrade Will Let Phones Connect To Nearby Devices Without Towers

That's what I need; radiation at full blast an inch from my crotch and my battery life dropping for no reason while someone uses my phone as a relay.

slashmydots Moron (102 comments)

Not everyone else in the world dumps pounds of pepper into a dish to make it "less bland." In fact, no professional chefs do that. Anyone who does that to Gordon Ramsey on Hell's Kitchen certainly hears his opinion on it.

Facebook's Atlas: the Platform For Advertisers To Track Your Movements

slashmydots Re:And this ... (89 comments)

"If your browser doesn't have at least 3 privacy extensions, you're handing all of this information over to these clowns to collect your data and do targeted marketing."
I use a fake last name on Facebook and a fake birthday and there are zero pictures of me on it. You, on the other hand, are completely going about things the wrong way.

John Carmack's Oculus Connect Keynote Probably Had Samsung Cringing

slashmydots still fake (88 comments)

It's still a prepared fake if you ask me. Unless he says "well, Facebook bought it so now it's guaranteed to go down the toilet" then he's not really being all that honest, is he? If I know and you know that FB will turn it into a pay to play, ad-infested, privacy nightmare then certainly he knows it.

How Our Botched Understanding of "Science" Ruins Everything

slashmydots Re:almost there (794 comments)

You're forgetting people to this day "proving" the Earth is flat, people who tried to turn lead into gold, the majority of what Tesla thought (teleportation, wireless energy, etc), pretty much everything ever discovered about other stars, planets, and galaxies, etc. There are some really inaccurate histories and some really, really stupid things that became scientifically accepted for a while.

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

slashmydots Re:uh oh (475 comments)

Actually, a smart person knows those are theoretical and most likely impossible and there has never been a working prototype of even an idea of how to build one.

Users Report Warping of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

slashmydots Re:good luck with that (421 comments)

The 27 inch imac with passive ventilation. Some macfag douchetard in my college's IT dept insisted on making the teacher's console an imac (in our .NET programming class!!!!!) and it overheated about twice per class period because it was about 80 degrees in the lab.

Why India's Mars Probe Was So Cheap

slashmydots they ruined the ending (200 comments)

The very end of the article states that hopefully future missions will use solar sails for an even cheaper project price. One tiny, miniscule little rock and there goes the sail. It's like dropping a bowling ball on a parachute. I don't know why people think it's a good idea. It isn't!
