Comment Re:russia is devolving (Score 1) 412

china doesn't have to militarily invade siberia. it can just corrupt officials, pay russian legislators to make laws friendly to it, own all of the companies operating in siberia, flood the area with immigrants, etc

Great idea, flood the place with Chinese people, then move in military units to "protect them"! Russia won't see it coming!

Comment My predictions (Score 4, Insightful) 267

Here's what I expect, in so specific order.

1.) Lens flares, so you can't see what's happening clearly!
2.) Shaky cam, so you can't focus on anything happening!
3.) Ultra-close-up action, so you don't know who is doing what in fights!
4.) Previously known characters acting against their established personalities, for no good reason, and against all reason in general.
5.) Teal and orange! In every scene, teal and orange will provide the color contrast.
6.) C-3PO and R2-D2 will appear for some stupid fucking reasons and tie into the mythos in even more unlikely and retarded ways.

Comment Mental masturbation (Score 1) 127

By only looking at the data for what you have eaten the past few weeks, I can predict what you will eat tomorrow, with some random accuracy. (Assumptions: no friends, no changing tastes, constant values for availability and prices of all foods, no problems with traffic or weather, no sickness, etc).

This seems like pointless mental masturbation.

And it should be the law: If you use the word `paradigm' without knowing what the dictionary says it means, you go to jail. No exceptions. -- David Jones
