Honestly acquired wealth

An idea that would be charming in its naivety coming from a child.

Water Discovered In Exoplanet Atmosphere

tehcyder Re:We care why? (50 comments)

What the hell are you even talking about?

" (which is a key signature for life as we know it)"

Which you're assuming means the same as here!!??

Life as we know it would by definition be the same as here. That doesn't mean there aren't other, unfamiliar forms of life.

Aluminium is an anagram of iAluminum. I'm sure this is important.

The vast majority of people on slashdot are in effect upper-middle class white boys. Even if they're black working class lesbians.

Bioethicist At National Institutes of Health: "Why I Hope To Die At 75"

tehcyder Re:The WHO (478 comments)

A lot of obese people are obsessed with diets, food, exercising, and the rest. They buy books and apps, watch "inspirational" TV shows, sign up to expensive dance or gym classes, and so on.

They just don't (in general) have the ability to simply stick to a sensible lifestyle.

Nvidia Sinks Moon Landing Hoax Using Virtual Light

tehcyder Re:There are numerous other obvious flaws (275 comments)

I see conspiracy theorists as an example of believing in a very unlikely scenario to boost your ego.

I recently saw an article (here?) about a study that found that subscribing to conspiracy theories correlates strongly with a low self-image.

Well, I love a good conspiracy theory, but I also think I'm fucking wonderful, so that's your theory blown out the water.

Nvidia Sinks Moon Landing Hoax Using Virtual Light

tehcyder Re:There are numerous other obvious flaws (275 comments)

This would have to be a VERY well organized conspiracy. (Which alone should debunk this theory. Government is too inept to pull something like this off.)

Knocking "the government" without evidence is itself a fairly paranoid thing to do.

I would say that governments were actually pretty good at covering things up, so your argument is not a strong one.

Yeah, it's well known that the Nazis were horrified at the idea of using gas...those concentration camps just had really unlucky plumbing.

So in other words you probably do a mixture of air and ground bursts, thereby achieving maximum damage to both humanity and the planet.

US Revamping Its Nuclear Arsenal

tehcyder Re:You sound awfully concerned about (341 comments)

90% of our species might be wiped out, but I doubt we'd go extinct...

Oh, well that's all right then.

I bet The Road is your idea of a wet dream.

US Revamping Its Nuclear Arsenal

tehcyder Re:It is all pork barrel politics (341 comments)

Your plan might be a bit more evil and ingenious if the US (and other countries) also kept all their own nuclear weapons near the seaside too.

Striking first only works if you also destroy the opposition's ability to respond.

I don't think there's an awful lot of "humaneness" in most people who are prepared to be torturers.

Science Has a Sexual Assault Problem

tehcyder Re:Is there a single field that doesn't? (460 comments)

Flirtation isn't sexual harassment.

Yeah, you subtly flirt; but that creepy guy over there annoying that woman with crude sexual innuendos and inappropriate invasioin of her body space is...oh you're looking in a mirror.

The Minecraft Parent

tehcyder Re:In the woods? (173 comments)

When they came home they asked me if we could get Minecraft. I told them, "of course not - go outside and build a treehouse. Get some sunshine while you're at it".

Because, of course, there's no possibility of kids both playing Minecraft sometimes, and playing in the woods at other times. It has to be one or the other, for ever.

Secret Service Critics Pounce After White House Breach

tehcyder Re:More and serious threats (221 comments)

With the Internet, you can tailor yourself to be exactly what the voter wants you to be. No more bad hairdays. No more potential assassins.

Yes, it's an often-overlooked fact that there's been no political violence since the internet was invented.

Secret Service Critics Pounce After White House Breach

tehcyder Re: They don't need fancy gadgets (221 comments)

When Australia banned guns, there were a lot of dickheads saying we would be much safer: But crime increased, a lot

Yeah, because the only thing that stops crime is having a heavily armed populace able to defend themselves 24/7 with concealed machine guns.
