Apple Edits iPhone 6's Protruding Camera Out of Official Photos

thaylin Re:Parallax. (419 comments)

Incorrect. Apple nor google make their money from selling your habits. Other companies do that for BOTH of them. Google makes money selling ad space that will target you. Google has a vested interest in not selling that data, to stay at the top of the advertising ladder. Google can target ads to you without selling any data about you to someone.

Only because it is an "i device". Not because it is better in any way. That is not amazing, that is zealotry.

Umm, you mistakenly believe the government does not have the ability to do all the things you mention now...

thaylin Re:So-to-speak legal (417 comments)

I know some VERY nutty people. I know at least 2 people who are trying to go off grid at the moment because the government will collapse within 5 years.

Comcast Allegedly Asking Customers to Stop Using Tor

thaylin Re:So-to-speak legal (417 comments)

Except that is not the case, for me. I believe in the ability to do what one likes, as long as it does not physically affect another person. However the only way that works is if you either have a government entity, or if you personally/mob punish everyone who violates that. Since we live in a civilized society we oped for the former over the latter. That people abuse the system is not a constructive argument for going to the second argument which can be abused even more.

Comcast Allegedly Asking Customers to Stop Using Tor

thaylin Re:So-to-speak legal (417 comments)

Because in your rage against the machine you miss one imporant problem, the 3rd parrty. Sure you should be able to do anything you want, as long as it does not affect others.

If I want to pay my neighbor for mowing my lawn, why should the government get in the middle?

Because your neighbor may destroy your neighbor on the other side of the houses property. In which you violated that persons rights.

If I want to buy from comcast, I should have the right to do it if I please! I also have a right to terminate said contract whenever I please, and I can negotiate the price too.

Again because comcast is doing crap that affects others, outside of you, and currently the government is making it so you really can only chose them as it is, which if the problem.

If my neighbor wishes to die but she cannot kill herself, I could kill her provided we both agreed to!! It's our LIBERTARIAN RIGHT! If the cops find her dead, I should NOT be investigated. All I need to do is explain that we both had a VERBAL CONTRACT and that should be enough!

Yes officer she wanted me to kill her, and we had a verbal contract would be the get out of jail free card of every murderer. How would you punish criminals at all with that logic.

Cops shouldn't exist! Government shouldn't exist! I am a person and I should have the right to do anything I please with anyone, if we both wanted to.

And that is why cops exist. Without the cops and the government how do you determine if both parties wanted to do it.

Jesus. I don't understand the "extreme" libertarians like that. What will they do once they find out you can't really have a fair contract against a corporation (or anyone else) if there aren't laws or an arbitration system AKA "the judiciary system"?

ok now you lost me... I assume the entire post was sarcasm and you went out of your way to hide it until this part.

You have no evidence that any of that will come to pass, and seem to be mostly fear mongering .

If Tesla Can Run Its Gigafactory On 100% Renewables, Why Can't Others?

thaylin Re:Not just Reno (444 comments)

That is not "a lie'. A lie is saying they are burning record amounts when they are not. It does not matter if the record was set when the entire world unified into one country, a record is a record.

You have no evidence of that. How do you know they did not realize the mistake after 173 and stopped?

Tesla's Next Auto-Dealer Battleground State: Georgia

thaylin Re:Franchise laws = Racket laws (157 comments)

Originally they were not bad laws, back when there was only 1 or 2 car manufacturers who did not really have to compete, and when there were not many mechanic shops. Now the laws are really just a way to pay middlemen who pay lawmakers.

MetaFilter Founder Says Vacation Firm Forged Court Docs To Scotch Review

thaylin Re:Do not ever (116 comments)

debt over 4 years like that in most places cannot be collected, and over 7 years cannot be put on your credit report. If they are sending you notices after all this time you should contact a consumer lawyer, they can be forced to stop, and to pay you several thousand per violation.

Well when the majority is large enough to override the veto what is the point sometime? She did not sign it, that is enough to show the lack of support without wasting taxpayers money.

Limiting the Teaching of the Scientific Process In Ohio

thaylin Re:That's not in the bill, and he didn't say that (528 comments)

I like how you left off the next sentence of his response "That’s legitimate.". When speaking about the bill what saying it is legitimate is at the very least implying it is ok under the bill.

Cite it or you're a liar, cuntbag.

“In many districts, they may have a different perspective on that, and we want to provide them the flexibility to consider all perspectives, not just on matters of faith or how the Earth came into existence, but also global warming and other topics that are controversial,” Thompson said. Asked if intelligent design — the idea that a higher authority is responsible for life — should be taught alongside evolution, Thompson said, “I think it would be good for them to consider the perspectives of people of faith. That’s legitimate.
