Valve's Economist Yanis Varoufakis Appointed Greece's Finance Minister

xevioso Re:This doesn't sound... sound (327 comments)

And yet some economists, like Krugman or Greenspan, are quite prescient with their predictions, and were/are right more often than they were/are wrong about what will happen in the future. It makes more sense to pay attention to someone who has a good track record...Krugman didn't win a Nobel prize because he was lucky or didn't know what the hell he was talking about...

Economists are like poker players. Yes, there's a lot of luck involved and half the time no one knows what they are anyone else are doing, but it IS possible to be a good economist.

Ask Slashdot: Has the Time Passed For Coding Website from Scratch?

xevioso Re:That's WordPress in a nutshell (302 comments)

"create a mock-up in Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, I don't care what you use, but then send that to someone who knows how to code HTML from scratch. "

This right here shows you don't know what you are talking about. You can export your page IN HTML directly from Photoshop. You can save the whole mockup as a web page, which you can immediately open in a browser.

Eric Holder Severely Limits Civil Forfeiture

xevioso Re:Waiting for Republicans to come in and defend t (316 comments)

But he's correct. Even when "Obummer"'s administration does something demonstrably good that sharply aligns with the folks who hate him, they will minimize it rather than provide the accolades he deserves.

Lost Beagle2 Probe Found 'Intact' On Mars

xevioso Re:parachutes? (130 comments)

Like the fact that the astronomers in Europe and the U.S might use different measuring systems? Gosh, I must be a schmuck to point out that those scientists with Ph.D.s might want to double check that when sending up a probe or a satellite, because hey, they're pretty smart and I'm an idiot, right?

Sony Demands Press Destroy Leaked Documents

xevioso I find this amusing... (250 comments)

"Sony Pictures Entertainment will have no choice but to hold you responsible "

They have no choice? As in their hands are legally or physically tied so that they absolutely HAVE to sue you? The people at the top of Sony will have actually no other choice in the world, like, say, going to watch a Knicks game or reading a nice book? They have only one choice, which is to sue?

Bullshit.

Waze Causing Anger Among LA Residents

xevioso Re:Move to a gated community (611 comments)

The solution is simple: speed bumps. Even though the cars aren't going through a neighborhood fast, putting a few speed bumps along this route will discourage drivers from taking it.

xevioso Re:The best gift? (113 comments)

I don't understand the hate for this guy.

The above post seems like just a long but reasonable commentary on some recent products. So what?

Is Bennet Haselton hate the new hipster-hate? Are people jumping on the Haselton-hate bandwagon because it's the latest trendy thing to do on ./? I'm not really sure, but it is pretty stupid.

Court Orders Uber To Shut Down In Spain

xevioso Re:Unlicensed taxi broker (280 comments)

But cars aren't usually used to intentionally kill people. If they were, to the tune of 30,000 Americans a year, we would probably be wise to consider limiting or banning car usage, yes.

Court Orders Uber To Shut Down In Spain

xevioso Re:Unlicensed taxi broker (280 comments)

Im an American, and I say a hearty FUCK YOU to you as well.

Guns are HORRIBLE. They result in the deaths of more than 30,000 Americans every year. They directly harm people on a regular basis. Other countries with strict gun laws have very low crime rates, so there's no need to own a gun for self-defense.

And before you say, "Why don't you move there, then, libtard," I would say that because I love my country and am a proud American and am sick and tired of conservative nutjobs like you wanting to make this country even more violent than it already is, I would rather bring the peace in Western Europe here! The second Amendment needs to be changed! YOU DON'T NEED A GUN. dumbass.

Court Orders Uber To Shut Down In Spain

xevioso Re:no it is not (280 comments)

How can they catch you at the payment point? If I make a request for uber, unless the government is monitoring the app, which now may be encrypted, the uber or lyft car arrives, and money goes from my previously set up account into Uber's coffers. In what way can the government stop this?

All they can do is sue the owners, but with what evidence?
