Did this research notice if there were any deaths caused by getting discracted when you jumped and the camera got into such position that you tried to get a nippleslip or see the panties?

Just what we need... surround ourselves with ourselves. That will challenge us and cause us to grow into intelligent, tolerant and well rounded individuals.

/. just keep getting weirder and weirder.


Submission + - Copyright wars: everyone is wrong (spiked-online.com)

An anonymous reader writes: British website Spiked says both the media industry and its critics are wrong when it comes to the copyright wars.

"Everyone and their dog knows that the media is being torn asunder by the forces unleashed by the internet. Almost every movie ever made is available on BitTorrent, half of television's history is easily accessible worldwide courtesy of copyright-flouting Chinese video websites and, despite the success of legitimate services such as iTunes and Spotify, illegal downloads continue to dwarf online music sales."

The article argues that it's not illegal downloads that are destroying the media but instead it's the fault of industry as a whole retreating from production.

Interesting comparison to free and open source software. Slashdot gets a mention also.

...the author talks about how smart people need to find a certain amount of intellectual challenge from day to day. If they don't find it in their workplace, they'll end up playing complex, 'smart' games, like Civilization IV or Chess

Well, I always try to find challenging games during work hours, so I don't think I classify in either category.
