U.S. Drone Attack Strategy Against Al-Qaeda May Be Wrong

terevos Wait, so dropping bombs on people isn't working? (433 comments)

So let me get this straight.... Dropping bombs on people doesn't make them stop attacking you?

Whenever I get into an argument, I just punch the other guy in the face. That usually stops the argument and everyone walks away with a happy smile.

Programmer Debunks Source Code Shown In Movies and TV Shows

terevos Re:Comments here are overreacting (301 comments)

No, they're responding appropriately to how the story was posted. The original article is supposed to be fun. But the post says "Programmer Debunks Source Code Shown In Movies and TV Shows" and "Someone is finally pausing TV shows and movies to figure out if the code shown on screen is accurate or not." as if it's something new.

It's not new, but it is cool how deeply they investigated this stuff.

App Detects Neo-Nazis Using Their Music

terevos Re:Freedom of thought (392 comments)

This might have been true in the 1930s and prior (when they actually had to pass a constitutional amendment in order to outlaw alcohol). But now people do not hold the constitution so highly. It's much easier to ignore now.

Is Pluto a Binary Planet?

> And the status could change simply by having one body move further away, like Earth's moon is currently doing.

And that's a problem because....?? Eventually Earth/Moon will be a binary planet. I see no problem with that.

The 5-Year Console Cycle Is Dead

terevos counting chickens before they hatch (422 comments)

Seems that this is pure speculation. They are counting their chickens before they hatch. The Wii was launched in 2006. The average is 5, but sometimes 6 years. That means that it could be as long as 2012 until a new Wii is launched. I'm guessing a new Wii will be launched in 2012.

Global Warming 'Undeniable,' Report Says

terevos No one denies that the earth is getting warmer (1657 comments)

No one denies that the earth is getting warmer, but there are people that deny the cause of it (natural vs. human). "Global Warming" describes the ideology that humans are the cause of the earth getting warmer.

Working on it != it's coming out

I'm certain that they were working on bringing it to the iPhone.. however, that does not mean it will definitely come out for the iPhone. No lying involved.

Google Shopping List has been broken since April 4

terevos terevos writes  |  more than 4 years ago

terevos (148651) writes "Google Shopping List has been broken since the beginning of April and has not done anything about it. There are a number of people who were using it to track wishlists and book recommendations, etc. It's now a month later and there has been no response and no indication that they are working on it. Do you have a Google Shopping list? And are you having trouble accessing it? The Google Help forum is here. Add your comments to the list if you're also experiencing this issue."
