How Nigeria Stopped Ebola

xevioso Re:Ebola Prince (381 comments)

It's a valiant attempt to tie in Nigerian money scams into the Ebola crisis to create some form of joke, but you've ultimately failed.

California Governor Vetoes Bill Requiring Warrants For Drone Surveillance

xevioso Re:something to remember next time you vote (115 comments)

You know, it is possible for two candidates to share the same ideas on some issues and radically different issues on others. Obama and any Republican opponent support the use of American force on foreign soil whenever they think it necessary. That's true. But they would differ vastly on issues of gay rights, gun control, immigration, health care, taxes, abortion rights, and a whole host of other issues.

The inability of people who hate both Democrats and Republicans to see actual differences between them boggles my mind, because the vast majority of Americans can and most of them are pretty dumb. Even the most moronic Republican knows that Obama supports serious health care reform, for example, while virtually all Republicans have, up until recently, virulently opposed it. Are you people just imbeciles? Are you just plain stupid? Even a fifth grader knows that some people may believe the same things but they also believe different things, but that doesn't mean they believe the exact same things, nor that they are indistinguishable from each other, as you buffoons seem to believe. Jesus Christ.

Statistician Creates Mathematical Model To Predict the Future of Game of Thrones

xevioso Re:Hodor (127 comments)

I will make a prediction: Martin will kill off an important character because he has no idea how to write a character arc out of a wet paper bag. Someone important will die, because there's no way for him to have a character come to a resolution. This is known as "not knowing how to write a story" and instead is just writing a series of events.

It's my understanding a hipster may be properly described as "someone younger than you who doesn't wear a suit."

Phablet Reviews: Before and After the iPhone 6

xevioso Re:Hipsters are passe ... (277 comments)

Hipster-hating has certainly hit its prime. You see comments insulting people who like things they deem cool all the time. People used to make fun of goths, yuppies, even geeks, and now they make fun of hipsters. It's the new cool thing. Which makes the hipster-haters hipsters.

Phablet Reviews: Before and After the iPhone 6

xevioso Re:Very sad (277 comments)

No, Hipster-hating is the new thing. It's the newest form of elitism, like hating yuppies or beatniks or goths.

And of course, being that hipster-hating is the new trend, and the hipster-haters are following said trend like sheeple, it just makes all of the hipster-haters hipsters. And soon the universe will collapse in upon itself.

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

xevioso Re:DAESH, not ISIL (478 comments)

So you don't believe them? You think they are lying when they use that exact book and verse when they order their followers to do exactly what they have been doing?

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

xevioso Re:DAESH, not ISIL (478 comments)

This. FINALLY someone points out that these people are doing this because of what they BELIEVE. People are always talking about how these people are psychopaths and they just want power...and no one seems to want to point out that these people believe a book that TELLS THEM TO DO EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING.

I have a secret fantasy, which is that one day, in an argument on Fox or CNN or MSNBC, some talking head will actually quote the relevant verses from the Quran that these DAESH guys use to justify their atrocities, and will ask a Muslim scholar to explain why that doesn't justify their atrocities for people who believe what the Quran says.

'Why Banana Skins Are Slippery' Wins IgNobel

xevioso Re:Dogs as compass (127 comments)

This is not entirely correct. It's "lactic acid isolated from" infant feces as a probiotic starter for the fermentation process in fermented sausages. Who the hell eats fermented sausages anyway? That's sausage that is allowed to spoil a bit, in this case with milk extracted from infant crap.

How have I entered into a contractual obligation by using Google? What contractual obligation am I under or even is Google under by me entering a search term in a search box?
