Comment Parents suck too (Score 3, Insightful) 283

How many of these parents work with their kids when at home? How many let the kids to go their room and play on the iPad or xbox and only see them at dinner? Or are too busy driving them to useless and expensive team sports events?

Education requires major input from the parents but many of them treat the schools like babysitters and get mad at the teachers when their kids can barely read.

Comment Re:Suck it, "editors." (Score 0) 30

Every day the editors at /. wake up to a hot cup of fresh brewed failure.

They take the failure train to work.
They snack on failure chips and failure dip.
At lunch they eat failure sandwiches on whole-grain failure bread with special failure sauce.
They shit out failure and wipe their asses with failure paper.
They take the failure train back home where they eat microwaved leftover failure.
They lay in bed at night in quiet failure with a tear running down their cheek
They get up and, after fumbling for an hour, realize they are too inept to make a noose then put the rope of failure back down for another night.
They cry themselves to sleep and have the same shared nightmare of running in slow motion as the utter blackness of a failed life catches up.

Then they wake up to that hot cup of fresh brewed failure.

Comment He's a lukewarmist, not a denier (Score 2) 286

How can anybody call him a "denier" when he acknowledged global warming in the first twenty seconds of the cited video?

He is more of a lukewarmist, meaning that he agrees that the climate is changing, is not certain that's a bad thing, and reserves judgment on controlling emissions until there is more data to confirm the models' predictions.

Comment Using the potty. (Score -1, Troll) 155

After he went poo-poo in the potty, how did he ensure his bummy-bum was clean if he was unable so see the toilet paper? Did he use a bidet in the dark? Were the ravioli poo-poos gross and, what we call, "two-flushers" in our house? How would he know when the potty has enough toilet paper in it?

Seriously, if you're going to do science, you have to include the poo!

The life of a repo man is always intense.
