What Internet Searches Reveal About Human Desire

xwizbt Re:Expectation (224 comments)

And you fail to meet the challenge. Does that mean anything? Should you sleep with your sister's best friend or come clean with your wife about the farm hand's hands. All indications point to 'YES' but do retry any 8-ball you wish to consult. In the meantime, please refrain from anal sex: it's dirty-naughty, and God knows about it. Sweetie. x

What Internet Searches Reveal About Human Desire

xwizbt Re:Expectation (224 comments)

I have to say that bergamot and vetiver smell good to me. I avoid shagging vetiver plants, not just because they're spiky, and I haven't shagged a bergamot bush partly because I've not actually seen one, and partly because *who shags a bush*? But apparently, my esteemed co-comenteer likes 'the smell of a woman'. Aside from 80s films, does such a thing exist, and why, one might ask, is that the 'natural' thing to be doing? I do lots of unnatural things, but I don't count my sexual encounters among them. Using a fork, walking erect (footwise, I mean), reaching round the back of my head with a limb that's not supposed to get there... all unnatural. Fucking a man... well, that might seem natural to you if you either study penguins or actually try it. Make sure your wife's out of town. :)

Calling Susan is a humorous quote. The challenge remains.

I call Susan on your 'it's nature' argument. Prove it's natural to be heterosexual. Go on. You'll please a lot of fundamentals, and greatly displease me. Prove it.

What Internet Searches Reveal About Human Desire

xwizbt Re:Expectation (224 comments)

Your post saddens me in ways that I shouldn't even consider. What does it mean when you say you're 'sickened' by something? Does it mean you feel you're unlikely to do that thing, or that the thing in question would make you physically ill, and you might vomit. Would you be prepared to try it to find out, or are you so certain it's... well, not 'wrong' per se, but 'sickening', that you'd be unable to physically contemplate it?

I'm gay, and I regularly place other men's penises in my mouth. Well, one man in particular, actually, in the same way that you probably place your penis in your wife's mouth, vagina or, judging from your post, not her anus. One might ask why it's acceptable for you to push it in her mouth or vagina but not her anus, and while that's entirely the point here, let's not go there. Oh, look - I made a nearly-funny.

I sleep with my partner, and what we do in the bedroom involves inserting parts of me into parts of him, in the same way that you insert parts of you into parts of her. Nothing's dirty or nasty; you don't even know which parts go into which parts. In fact, there are millions of people who insert parts far weirder than you've even considered into places you've never even imagined parts can be inserted. You can buy the DVDs if you're interested. I'm not: what I'm interested is in if you can convince me that you placing your most private, most intimate part into someone else's most private, most intimate part is somehow more special and somehow sacred than me placing my most private, most intimate part in someone else's chosen private, most intimate orifice?

In short, Mr. 'I'm sickened' - oh, whatever. I've been gaybashed on the street by thugs who made a more eloquent argument.

Are Third-Party Android Vendors Violating the GPL?

xwizbt Re:Android (132 comments)

Yeah, but the arguments about iOS are about how they're stopping people doing dodgy things. The arguments about Android are about how people are running amok, able to do whatever they want despite Google. Never mind which allows you your freedom - you are not the average user. Which one - iOS or Android - is the one you choose to keep pictures of your grandkids on?

Are Third-Party Android Vendors Violating the GPL?

xwizbt Re:Android (132 comments)

Ignore the haters. I, and many others, concur. Android is a deathtrap of viruses, harvesting, trojans and misinformation. Fear, uncertainty and doubt. The opposite of a walled garden is surely an entirely open one, and unless you go round with the hoe, the weeds will grow. Apologies for rhyming; 'cause it's true. Equip Gran with a new 'droid tablet, and watch her money slowly be sapped from her account, or give her a new iPad and watch her shop at the App Store. Super stuff - no credit card drainage, no worries about trojans, no viruses. Sorted.

Confessions of a Computer Repairman

xwizbt Re:hrmmmm (387 comments)

The whole concept is ridiculous - you're saying 'I know the consumer needs to clean up their installation, but I'll offer to install RAM they don't need, then clean up their installation, let them pay for the fake RAM then hope they don't discover I've sneakily cleaned up their installation rather than giving them the RAM they paid for'. Perhaps you should pick out a special superhero costume to go with it. You're thinking FakeRAMGuy or something; I'm thinking 'Pratman'.

Do Violent Games Hinder Development of Empathy?

This is so massively wonderful that its swollen gorgeousness drags on the ground like some over-eating ant who's been fed and subsequently produced 'yellow' without even knowing what the beardy bloke said. Go, girl...

WikiLeaks Cash-For-Votes Exposé Rocks Indian Government

xwizbt Re:why is this unusual or Afghan reauthorized (225 comments)

'We' this and 'we' that. Is the government which represents you really 'you' if they're operating by withholding the truth from you?

UK Schools Consider Searching Pupils' Smartphones

xwizbt Re:"Kids are not adults." (283 comments)

Grow up. Or one. Whichever.

Imagine what you perceive to be your rights. Imagine they are ascribed to each individual you see around you. Start from that point, and then post further.

Facebook May Bust Up the SMS Profit Cartel

I like this - all you have to do is set up codenames and hope the right person reads it.:

"Rosebud - won't be home for tea. The Squirrel Flies South later, okay?"

Facebook May Bust Up the SMS Profit Cartel

xwizbt Re:USA Only? (262 comments)

In the US it's quite common to pay for receiving messages or calls. I agree - it's rather odd. Imagine crippling your enemies by sending them a massively heavy signed for parcel...

"Two tons of lead, sir? What do you mean you don't want to pay - it's yours!"

eBooks Nearly Outsell Print Books At Amazon

xwizbt Re:Same phenomenon as the mobile app market (154 comments)

This is so true, but in practice I'm selling books on eBay for 0.99 and charging a postage rate of three times what the book is worth just to break even. That's because the postage rate for books is murder...

Why eBooks aren't priced to reflect the lack of paper, shipping and bulk is beyond me.

No Playboy App For iPad, After All

xwizbt Re:You mean even Hef (140 comments)

What utter bollocks you spew: this idea of 'safely' doing business is bizarre and new to me. Tell me about your 'safe' business practices, and I'll listen and nod, then let you loose into the lions' den. Go for it, Mr. Safe Business: I'm going to be charging to sweep up your remains.

Transgaming To Add DRM To Mac Cider Releases

xwizbt xwizbt writes  |  more than 5 years ago

xwizbt writes "Transgaming has announced that it will use the SecuROM digital rights management solution for all its Cider games from now on. This is apparently intended to provide the company with a 'high level of security against piracy and unauthorized copying for Cider enabled game titles'. They hope the increased security will attract more Windows developers to Cider. Guess they're not worried about putting off the Mac gamers, then..."

Sproutcore Begins Demo Contest

xwizbt xwizbt writes  |  more than 6 years ago

xwizbt writes "Sproutcore is giving developers three weeks to produce a killer demo to show off Sproutcore's abilities. I'm certainly looking forward to seeing what people can do with Sproutcore; the two demos on the main website are already pretty impressive, so I'm sure these demos are going to be worth seeing."

Netscape Discontinued

"We feel it's the right time to end development of Netscape branded browsers, hand the reigns fully to Mozilla and encourage Netscape users to adopt Firefox," Tom Drapeau revealed on the company's blog."
