Employer Facebook Password Requests Suspended

timmarhy Re:Flashlight under a rock (209 comments)

your 100% right about drugs being everyones problem. not only that but courts go easy on drug affected offenders like it's some kind of excuse.

i think your a bit off the mark about why employers want facebook passwords - the honest truth, is they have no idea why they want it or what to do with it. some manager with too much time on his hands saw something about facebook on tv, then raised it as an urgent issue at a meeting. a bunch of other managers not wanting to look the fool for not knowing agreed with him, and bam, you have it as part of the interview process.

people at the top of most institutions really are this kind of clueless.

Anonymous Denies Targeting Westboro Baptist Church

timmarhy Re:Haven't Seen Proof WBC did the Anon Press Relea (212 comments)

WBC confuse freedom of speech with freedom to force people to listen. they have no right to yell shit at people through a mega phone.

they give politicians the ammo they need to make amendments curtailing freedom of speech - in that respect they are very dangerous.

Anonymous Denies Targeting Westboro Baptist Church

timmarhy hells angels (212 comments)

one of the best video's i've seen was of them going to a soldiers funeral and finding 100's of bikers waiting for them.

one day a grieving relative will pull out a gun and blow the WBC cock suckers away, and not a single person will be sorry. in fact it'd be a golden opportunity for some delicious payback - imagine turning up at THEIR funerals with those same tactics?

Self-Control In Kids Predicts Future Success

timmarhy Re:Causation is not Correlia (245 comments)

your pretty much right unfortunately. even if your born into money and a good position, poor genetics will mean you'll fuck it all up eventually.

while i think self control can be learnt, there is an element in there that you just can't defeat with will power alone.

New Mega-Leak Reveals Middle East Peace Process

timmarhy Re:Israel has the right to exist in peace... (760 comments)

israel should never have been created it's true and they shouldn't be pushing arab's out of their own land. HOWEVER, the fact that you see not killing other people as some kind of condition imposed on you talks a lot to what a bunch of savages the current palestinian regime is.

New Mega-Leak Reveals Middle East Peace Process

timmarhy there's a font of unbiased news for you (760 comments)

Al Jazeera is nothing but a radical mouth piece of islamics. it makes fox news look like a balanced and trust worthy news source.

anything they release, take it with a truck load of salt.

Should Younger Developers Be Paid More?

timmarhy as usual your looking at this all wrong. (785 comments)

It's not a question of age, but experience, and the 2 are vastly different things.

paying a wet behind the ears kid more then an experienced developer is just wrong no matter what "hot" technology they claim to know, because it takes YEARS to work up what i would call an acceptable level of knowledge in any language to command a high rate of pay. If this kid if right out of college then he's probably not worth much. sorry gen Y, but you've got lots to learn.

I'm in my 30's and it's only been in the last few years that i've had the experience to command large salaries, that's just how the world is - it takes time to learn shit.

The Prospects For Lunar Mining

timmarhy lunar mass (348 comments)

the issue i see with a large scale mining of the moon (and shooting it into space), is what will happen with us changing the mass of the moon? I get that it's huge and we would only take a few % off it, but let's never say never here and consider in 100 years if we removed 1% of the moons mass, would this affect processes on earth?

timmarhy Re:Cost:Benefit? (280 comments)

yes. it's that simple.

in a country with welfare and public assistance there's NO EXCUSE for thieving bastards. they are simply scum, and we are all better off without them on the streets.

California Rare-Earth Mine Reopens

timmarhy Re:I burn in hell for demanding responsibility? (244 comments)

i don't know how it works in the USA, but here in australia that's not how it works with mining companies. here and in most other 1st world countries miners have to pay environmental bonds to cover the cost of clean up if they walk away. they only get part of that back if they perform full rehab works.

of course if your living in some bum fucked 3rd world country where your officals are corrupt, well your fucked and need to fix your country.

Retailers Dread Phone-Wielding Shoppers

timmarhy Re:So, the system works? (725 comments)

good, fuck mom and pop store owners who rape you in the ass with high prices. as long as anyone is free to open a competing store, it's fine.

all the snobby fucktards who think they are too good to shop at wal-mart can't be as clever as they think they are if they are paying more just to avoid a wal-mart.

'I Just Need a Programmer'

timmarhy Re:As a programmer (735 comments)

couldn't have said it better myself. the only thing i'd add is 99% of these "idea's men" have terrible poorly thought out idea's to begin with anyway, much like a lot of the code out there.

WikiLeaks Starts Mass Mirroring Effort

timmarhy Re:Make it static. (586 comments)

the only reason ASSange is doing it this way is to extend his moment in the spot light. how do we even know the information he is releasing is real? I refuse, unlike many of you, to take off my skeptic's hat just because it's wikileaks.

Considering a Fair Penalty For Illegal File-sharing

timmarhy Re:Hang on... (728 comments)

if you own a business and your wealthy from it, you've already paid a shit load more in tax personally and in company tax then was needed to cover your share of social expenses like schools.

i personally pay enough income tax to cover 2 people's social security and medical annually, so anyone claiming i'm not pulling my weight can go fuck themselves.

South Korean Cartoonists Cry Foul Over Edgy Simpsons Intro

timmarhy Re:Banksy is right and you know it. (299 comments)

banksy is a fucking idiot. south korea is an affluent nation with all the mod cons you or i have. making 1/3 the US salary doesn't mean shit, it's not an apples for apples comparison. but go right ahead don't let facts get in the way of your blind hate and ignorance.
