UK Council To Send Obese People 'Motivational' Texts Telling Them To Use Stairs

timdingo Re:Sample Texts (225 comments)

I know google is a tough one to use, but searching around will yield stuff like this: http://articles.mercola.com/si...

I know it's difficult to actually take the time to think about what you're replying to, but I'd like to see some _objective_ _research_ backing this theory, please. See? Two things you didn't consider: objective & research. mercola.com hardly qualifies as an objective research organization, in fact, I'm pretty sure they're only interested in selling stuff.

Data Analysts Attempt To Predict World's Largest Music Vote, Again

timdingo Re:Winner! (41 comments)

Given the kind of music Triple-J plays (and the kind of people who are likely listen to it instead of the mainstream commercial stations) I highly doubt any of the Top 100 winners are going to be manufactured mass-marked over-hyped pop crap.

'any of the Top 100 winners' seriously? from the 2012 list: 1 Thrift Shop - Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Wanz After that I didn't even bother to further inspect the list. If that isn't manufactured mass-marked over-hyped pop crap, I don't exactly know what is.

I guess I should be appalled, but.. the dude slaughtered a pregnant girl; I don't care how he died exactly at all. In fact, I'm going to consider this a successful QA test and move on.

Rap Genius Returns To Google Search Rankings

timdingo Re:Rap "Genius"? (115 comments)

/agreed Sometimes, when reading on or hearing of people I don't approve of, I'll drop a pejorative 'who?' even though I've got a pretty good idea who said person is. Not this time. This time I haven't got a clue as to who this 'Rap Genius' is. Not sure I want to know either.
