whiteranger99x Reason why it failed (140 comments)

If the filmmaker only would've started his sentence with "would you kindly", he would've got unconditional support for making the movie

Really people, it's called thinking things through, not hard

TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese woman called in the police after a hitman she paid to kill her lover's wife failed to carry out the job.

The 32-year-old Tokyo woman was arrested Wednesday for incitement to murder, the Daily Yomiuri newspaper said Friday.

The woman contacted a private detective through a Web site last November and paid him 1 million yen in cash to murder her
love rival, the paper said.

The 40-year-old detective accepted the money and suggested he could carry out the job by chasing the victim on a
motorcycle and spraying her with a biological agent in a tunnel.

Police also arrested the private detective and found the alleged target safe and well, the paper said.

Lesson of the day: If you're going to commit an illegal act (or hire someone else to do it), DON'T fucking call the police because the hitman you hired failed to kill the target...you deserve multiple buttrapings for your stupidity.

That "Fixing That Old Game System" article reminded me of the hell[1] I've endured when playing my NES games. No no no, I don't mean they were horrendous by any means, but rather getting some of them to work as years went by. Mainly either having to load and reload the cartridge and yes, even blowing the cartridge to get them to work. My ultimate nightmare[2] was when I played through Dragon Warrior 3 and I tried to load it up and something caused the damn battery to clear out my save games! X(

1] Hell = possibly overblown definition used to mean annoyance.
2] Nightmare = possibly overblown definiton used to mean agony from aformentioned disaster.

You are an enzyme. You are powerful, dark, variable, and can change many things at your whim...even when they're not supposed to be changed. Bad you. You can be dangerous or wonderful; it's your choice.

Blargh.

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I love how my karma's been teetering between "Good" and "Excellent", seeing as how I make almost nothing but wiseass remarks (and even THAT is debatable :P).

Getting to the task at hand, the only thing eventful today was the fact that I had to take my car in to get a couple front tires, as well as getting major alignment work, which I suspected was dodgy, to say the least. Although I consider myself a complete dullard in auto mechanics, I have to say I feel I got a good deal out of it :)

It's official

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  about 10 years ago

Yup, it's official. As of today, I am a quarter of a century old! :D

Not too sure how I'm going to be celebrating it, but at any rate, I'm sure alcohol will be involved ;)

Cheers, folks!!

Amendment: Thanks guys! :D

Gmail

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 10 years ago

I'm sure this may come across as nitpicking, but...what's so great about gmail?? I'm sure the hype has died down since it's introduction, but the means people use to obtain one seems a little fanatical. Granted yes, you get 1GB of storage, search functions with emails and other goodies.

But is it really the greatest thing since sliced bread? Discuss.

Now that's Service!!

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Not a bad start, but their hours could be improved ;)

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish aid organisation will roll out a new line of defence to the country's emergency services next week -- the condom ambulance.

From Friday, June 4, amorous couples can call the telephone number 696969 and a white van featuring a large red condom with wings as a logo will deliver them a packet of 10 prophylactics.

"We need to increase the usage of condoms," said Carl Osvald, marketing manager for the Swedish Organisation for Sex Education, the non-governmental organisation behind the initiative. "It is 50 percent about pregnancy and 50 percent about sexually transmitted diseases."

The ambulances will operate in Stockholm and the southern cities of Malmo and Gothenberg. The service, aimed at young people, will run until June 25 and be available between four in the afternoon and nine at night.

A packet of 10 condoms will cost 50 crowns (3.66 pounds), less than they cost on average in the shops.

The incidence of sexually transmitted disease is increasing rapidly in Sweden and not enough young people use condoms, Osvald said.

"We need to change attitudes to condoms," he said. "If we need to get out in to the bedrooms to make things better we will do it."

OMFG! W3 B33N D15C0V3D!!!

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Ok, how come when another p2p client come out, people get all freaked out when word of its existence spreads like wildfire? I mean, assuming the client is worth its weight in gold in terms of content and performance, do they really think that somehow certain groups *cough* RIAA *cough* MPAA *cough* are going to overlook them? Granted I believe their rationale is that they wont bother going after p2p networks that are sparsely populated (yet) until they fry the "bigger fish."

Of course it doesn't stop there, since p2p can be used to transfer yet another asinine copy of "Britney Spear - Toxic.mp3", it MUST be assumed that the Osama bin Ladens can use it to transfer plans to perform another 9/11 somewhere else. Or that it protects pedophiles from being caught downloading kiddie porn. I'm just sick of this whole slippery slope that some people perpetuate about p2p networks.

Bottom line: Even though things are intended to be used in a certain fashion, it doesnt mean that they won't be used for less desirable applications.

Or maybe I need to lay off the coffee for a while :P

Alright, here's the deal, I found this from someone else's journal, and even posted it on my livejournal, so I figured, hey why not here too? oh and plus im bored :P

Post your fake memories of me. It can be anything you like, as long as it never happened. Then post this in your journal so people can make up shit about you, too.

Have at it, kiddies =)

Long time no type.

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Well folks, yes it's been a while since I've typed anything worth while on my journal, or on Slashdot itself for that matter. And hell, the only comments I've been making lately are flippant remarks about certain subjects. Speaking of which, I believe that today was the first time that a comment of mine was branded "Flamebait" for an extended period of time.

Speaking of which, I've been given the option to moderate quite frequently lately, and I almost never meta-mod or otherwise participate.

Considering that I've upgraded my disk space, I was reintroduced to a game that I havent played until recently...Diablo II. Yup, seeing as my Paladin was wiped out (cant find the save), I've been playing from scratch. Been playing as a Necromancer, Barbarian, and Assassin.

And lately, I've had more time to be online, considering that I'm looking for work, or at least getting my resume and references ready. Hopefully I can find a good position, or at least one that isn't too atrocious :)

Which D&D character am I

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Stolen from SamTheButcher and SolemnDragon among others :P

I Am A: True Neutral Human Bard Fighter

Alignment:
  True Neutral characters are very rare. They believe that balance is the most important thing, and will not side with any other force. They will do whatever is necessary to preserve that balance, even if it means switching allegiances suddenly.

Race:
  Humans are the 'average' race. They have the shortest life spans, and because of this, they tend to avoid the racial prejudices that other races are known for. They are also very curious and tend to live 'for the moment'.

Primary Class:
  Bards are the entertainers. They sing, dance, and play instruments to make other people happy, and, frequently, make money. They also tend to dabble in magic a bit.

Secondary Class:
  Fighters are the warriors. They use weapons to accomplish their goals. This isn't to say that they aren't intelligent, but that they do, in fact, believe that violence is frequently the answer.

Deity:
  Gond is the True Neutral god of artifice, craft, and construction. He is also known as Gond Wonderbringer. His followers believe that 'actions count' - that is, that what is accomplished in the end is what is truly important. They wear saffron clothing, with red sashes containing all manner of mechanical devices. Their preferred weapons are firearms, since the followers of Gond had a large hand in their making and invention. They also wear plate mail (no shield), but generally prefer to have bodyguards, instead. Gond's symbol is a toothed wheel, made of ivory, bone, or metal.

Whiny People , the FCC, and the Media...blech :P

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Quick! Someone call the Waaaambulance!!

I'm getting sick of all these whiny people bitching about the Super Bowl halftime show. It's a fucking titty! (not to be mistaken with a titty fucking). For christs sakes people, get over your self-righteous bad selves!! Little Billy will be just fine after seeing that, and if he isn't, I seriously doubt that seeing a boob was the reason he snapped.

Let me ask this question...aren't there MUCH bigger fish to fry than this?

The humor that is livejournal...

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 10 years ago

Although I'm guilty of having a livejournal, I have to say that some people on livejournal can be fucking whiny, to the point of insanity.

I came across this revelation from HERE. I swear to christ this is some hilarious shit they have there. Of course then again, I was always one to be easily amused by low brow humor =)

One of my favorite sections is the people that happen to be whining over the fact that some trolls (if you can even call them that) are adding people right and left, randomly. Of course, the fucksticks that are whining, despite the fact that they can either restrict their blog to friends only, or face the possibility that the ENTIRE Internet can see their public journal at any given time. *looks around*

Internet, mod this JE down to Score: -1, Flamebait

Dateline: Samurai Sword Killer Avoids Jail Term

whiteranger99x whiteranger99x writes  |  more than 10 years ago

LONDON (Reuters) - A Samurai sword-wielding man who killed a British councilor who had intervened to rescue his MP boss escaped a life sentence on Thursday but was instead committed indefinitely to a secure hospital.

Robert Ashman, 52, was convicted in April of trying to kill Nigel Jones, the Liberal Democrat MP for the West Country town of Cheltenham, in an "explosion of violence" at his offices three years ago.

He also admitted the manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility of Jones' 39-year old assistant, Andrew Pennington, a local councilor who had leapt to the politician's aid.

Mrs Justice Heather Hallett said she had to follow the unanimous advice of psychiatrists that Ashman suffered from a delusional disorder.

She added that he would only be released in the future if the Home Secretary or a tribunal headed by a judge were satisfied that he no longer posed a risk to the public.

"I cannot foresee a time when you will be safely released into the community," she added.

Jones escaped after suffering serious injuries to his hands as he tried to fend off Ashman's two-foot-long sword. The attacker then turned on Pennington, stabbing him six times.

Ok, what other comments can i make besides "Damn?" I mean it's not everyday that someone decides to pretend he's in feudal Japan and go medieval or samurai on someones ass. *

OK seriously, does anyone really believe that he'll be cured enough to not go after people with sharp objects? After all, to quote Kung-Pow, "Killing is wrong. And bad. There should be a new, stronger word for killing. Like badwrong, or badong. Yes, killing is badong. From this moment, I will stand for the opposite of killing: gnodab."

Thank you and good night :D

* Chock full of stereotypes. Yes i apologize :P

Dateline: Man Cuts Off Own Penis to Cure Sex Addiction

This is a crude, but....effective method *groans while grasping himself* =-O

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German cut off his own penis with a kitchen knife to cure his addiction to sex, police in the southern town of Tiengen said on Friday.

"The man called a friend around eight o'clock to say he'd done something stupid," police said in a statement. He had been drinking vodka to pluck up courage for the amateur surgery.

Police arrived to discover the blood-soaked man, 41, in his apartment and his organ under the kitchen table. Emergency services rushed the man and his penis to a nearby hospital.

Police said the man did not want his penis to be reattached but were unable to say if doctors had complied with his wishes.
