Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

tds67 Re:Why? (2219 comments)

Slashdot beta is awful. Slashdot classic works well and is very distinctive. I won't be back if classic goes away.

Contributors Leaving Wikipedia In Record Numbers

tds67 Re:I'm wondering if it degrades. (632 comments)

I think there should be an alternative to Wikipedia called "Chaotica". Anyone would be allowed to change anything anytime to whatever they want. Can you imagine the entertainment value? One could go to the same subject time and time again and see something different each time. I think it would be very humorous!

Nvidia's RealityServer to Offer Ubiquitous 3D Images

tds67 Where have we seen this before? (82 comments)

Sounds like a redistribution of bit wealth to me. Those who can't afford the hardware shouldn't make the rest of us do their work. Get a job.

tds67 Hmmm... (280 comments)

Madoff's long-time deputy's name is Frank DiPascali? I would have figured he would be the computer programmer.

Nielsen Struggles To Track Modern Viewing Habits

"Okay, I can understand them not weighing us DVR watchers as much as grandma..."

...because grandma only weighs 90 lbs and is easier to hoist onto the scale. DVR watchers tend to be very fat couch potatoes. Glad I don't own a TV.

First Cellphone Use On Airplane Given OK

tds67 Re:First airline? (305 comments)

Actually, I didn't want to get into unprovable conspiracy theories, but I do agree.

Glad you agree. And I don't want to get into unprovable conspiracy theories either, which is why I won't discuss the offical conspiracy theory put forward by the government that Arabs did it.

Normal building collapses don't go "crak-crak-crak-crak-crak-crak-crak!" then freefall into their own footprint despite being that tall... twice in one day

Three times. WTC 7--across the street from the towers--fell later that same day at around 5:20pm, even though it wasn't hit by anything. Larry Silverstein leased/owned all three buildings and got a big fat insurance policy check for all three. The twin towers needed a billion dollars worth of clean-up work done on them to remove asbestos placed inside them in the 1970s. Lucky guy, Mr. Silverstein... in addition to not having to foot the bill for the clean-up work, he gets billions in insurance for all three buildings.

...and there should have been support columns jutting far out of the rubble...

The core should have remained even if the ridiculous "pancake theory" was true. The core was composed of 47 steel columns that ran through the middle of the towers. It would not have come down even if the floors "pancaked".

Ok, enough of that... I'm gonna get modded into a bottomless pit, haha

Gosh, I hope not. Just for using logic instead of spewing back the "offical" story? Just for thinking for yourself instead of running with the herd? For being people instead of sheeple?
