Comment: Howsabout some fucking BROWSER STABILITY? (Score 1) 107 107

Chat! Yay! I already HAVE apps that allow me to do that.
Social media! Yay! I already HAVE apps that allow me to do that. And I hate the fuck out of social media to begin with!

What I WANT is a rock-solid fucking browser again goddammit!

All these stupid, hacked-on "features" that nobody uses are simply contributing to a browsing experience that's almost as stable as Chuck Manson on a bad acid trip!

You want to make a social media application? GO AHEAD! Stop fucking up a perfectly acceptable browser in the chase to do so!

IE blows (we're going to bend over and....)
Chrome blows for the opposite reason (we're going to protect you from yourself!)

And the more Mozilla deviates from Firefox = Web Browser, the more Firefox blows.

No I'm not kidding.

Sure, glass doesn't need to be brought to melting point to be weakened though.

Glass starts to become malleable around 580C or so.
This is still above the surface temperature of Venus. But I'm still not convinced that, long term, such a construct would retain structural integrity.

"Runs out".

Yeah. Okay. And how many companies are sitting on vast blocks that are only partially tapped?

This isn't so much an issue of lack (though at some point it'll become that).
It's an issue created by how assignment of address blocks was and is managed.

Yet another "Situation X makes the Bitcoin Scam look good!" article!

Bitcoin is a goddamn money pit. Sure, you can invest, and you can follow it and get glowing feels from a website telling you what your investment is worth.

Then, try to cash out... I dare you! I double dog dare you!

The truth is you don't need a third party anti-virus program the MS security essentials works just as good

Sorry, but this has never been true. MSE is pretty much a bottom-rung AV solution with the absolute WORST detection and recovery rates.
There are far better solutions out there, even free ones.

People need to grow the fuck up and grow some slightly thicker skin.
People still have a lot of rights. Thankfully.
But the "right to never be offended" has NEVER been among them.

Okay. We've sued and lost.
We've sued again and lost.
We've appealed to every political figure available and lost.
We've tossed up every roadblock imaginable and lost.
So now, despite what the law says and the fact that it's obvious other people want this, we're still going to interfere and be assholes because we didn't get our way.

At this point, I'm with the social darwinists. Just roll over the fuckers. You'll be doing the species good by ridding it of obvious mental defectives.

Interviewer: Did it work?
Researcher: Yes. But we had to discontinue it.
Interviewer: Why?
Researcher: Because what we thought was memory stimulation was actually a memory encoding and replay system.
Interviewer: And that makes a difference...why?
Researcher: Because our test subjects were highly disturbed by "memories" of getting their freak on with female mice...
Interviewer: ...eww...
Researcher: Indeed...
