Slashdot Asks: Are You Preparing For Hurricane Sandy?

sulphurlad I live in the Bahamas you insensitive clod!!!! (232 comments)

This girl has power, and is not in a big hurry to leave. We are still getting 35 MPH + gusts in Nassau this Saturday morning. Had massive storm surges on the coast, with some roads, hell even a police car, buried in the sand, and just generally just want that tourist to leave the islands.

Some of the Family Islands, Eleuthera, Abaco, Grand Bahama, Cat Island, the islands to the east of Nassau/New Providence, took the brunt of the Storm.

Goldman Sachs Says No Facebook Shares For US Investors

sulphurlad CYA (529 comments)

They are just covering their asses, the Facebook IPO is just a scheme, so the guys that started it can cash out and run. By offering it only to 'investors' outside the US, they limit their exposure to law suits and shit....

TSA Pats Down 3-Year-Old

sulphurlad Re:I wonder... (1135 comments)

Well having just went though this Bullshit @ MCO Monday, I can tell you that it is not fun.
The fat cunt decided that I needed my laptop bag searched extra carefully after I refused to go through the new 'Light Up My Marrow' X-Ray device that some fucking Minimum Wage trainee was running that day. Well Lo and Behold, my laptop bag tested positive..... for what I have no fucking Idea.... No answer. Of course I was crazed Pissed, ready to go to jail pissed, at that point, was actually weighing that option of jail time.......and My wife, whom we just found out was pregnant, was getting really scared when cops showed up and was really trying to calm me down.....

Bottom Line:
They are highly untrained, but make up for it with massive attitude. After I calmed down 15 minutes later from my hissy fit, body pat down including my balls ( asked the Supervisor if he wanted to stick his finger in my ass too ,very loudly, he was a little embarrassed )
The cops that showed up at the scene said that TSA once tried to stop him from coming into the secured area with his weapons, against all rules and doctrines of the working relationship between the TSA and local law enforcement. I trust a cop, trained in law enforcement, way more then some fucking wanabee loser with a 2 week course that ends up saying that you can spell their name and pass a drug test.....

Good Luck.... not looking to returning to the states anytime soon. The terrorist won, The government took your Freedom.
Welcome to the happiest place on earth. Just don't think for your self and everything will be just fine.

UK Pressures the US To Takedown Extremist Videos

sulphurlad Re:Lol, no worries. (629 comments)

"Qualifications"
"Rape, murder, Arson, and rape."
"You said rape twice"
"I Like rape"
"Kinky, Sign here. What's that in your mouth?"
"Nothing"
"Tagert ?!?"
"Gum!"
"Chewing Gum on line!! I hope that brought enough for everyone?"
"I didn't know there was going to be so many"
Shoots the guy dead for chewing gum...

That was from memory.

Funny thing about this movie was that my mom, back in the day, was on the losing side of the original format wars... she bought a Betamax. We had like 3 Movies for the thing, The original Friday the 13th, The Fog, and Blazzin' Saddles. My sister and I are like 10 and 8 respectively, and to this day can recite most of the movie word for word. My wife never saw it till recently, I bought it on Itunes and I started doing the dialog like some jewish Rocky Horror tribute...

Given one free trip to the past in a time machine, I would..

sulphurlad Re:Why kill her? (1270 comments)

monkey rape? WTF? That 200k year old woman was human, not a monkey. Recent estimates are that the last common ancestor with the 'monkeys' was 5 to 6 Million years ago.
Killing eve effectively changes our fundamental genetic makeup, the butterfly effect would be huge. Maybe Matriarchal societies would be the norm. Maybe we would be a fragmented into various species, erectus, Neanderthal, or some other variation of proto human.
Competition for resources against another species would change our perception of earth, god, science, society, and race. Changes the Whole Game.
Kinda makes me think that pr0n would be kinda strange..... Cro-mag Fetishes... Neanderthal bondage, and WOW, think of the number of hits a site named www.homo-erectus.com would get....heheheheheh

sulphurlad Re:R U Kidding ME? (346 comments)

How Should a Non-Techie Learn Programming?

sulphurlad Re:It's like.... (346 comments)

Damn another plumbing reference....
I am a Plumber, master at that, state certified and all. I'm also an MCSE 2000. Plumbing and Computers are very similar.... at least at a high level, not talking glue pipe together or building a computer.
Logic and critical thinking are key. I can go into just about any structure, and surmise the basic layout and routing of the structures plumbing/mechanical system. There are only so many ways to skin a cat.
Doing basic plumbing is alot like networking, writing a script or a web page. If you know what to out come is supposed to be, you can muddle thought it.
Designing a Mechanical System, Water Distribution, Sanitary Piping, HVAC/R, Process Heat Recovery and Redistribution, and make it work correctly and with little maintenance is a whole other issue.
Real Programing, Like Mechanical Engineering, now that is the realm of the Professional. If you want to knock out a simple script to move data from one program to another, change a faucet or toilet, that's fine, Other than that, find a programmer or plumber and make a friend, share a beer, and have him do it. At least you know that it's done right.
Like my daddy said right before he killed my moma, you can hire talent, and fire 'em when the jobs dun, or you buy a friend a Papst Blue Ribbon and have them do it for you, plus talk about the best way to beat your wife and kids. Kidding.....

1935 Meccano "Dam Busters" Computer Restored

sulphurlad Re:I thought the Dam Busters were American... (175 comments)

What the animation didn't show is that the bombs had to be spun up counter clockwise before they were dropped, to get them to bounce on the water. The Lancaster bombers had their bomb bays modified with the mechanism to do this, basically a giant chain and sprocket. Just think about skipping flat rocks on the water, the more spin the more bounces.
