Comment: He was wrong, but not how you expect (Score 2, Funny) 205

"Jobs, as it turns out, was completely wrong about the integration of television and computers.

â€oeWe donâ€(TM)t think that televisions and personal computers are going to merge,†Jobs told Macworld in 2004 when discussing the 20th anniversary of the Macintosh. â€oeWe think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on.â€"

Now most of them use the "computer" to discuss weighty matters like how "this one for my niggas, I woulda said it was for the bitches but I dont got shit for bitches... .Shame on all you niggas all on the Instagram stuntin' for them bitches frontin' under pictures!"

Heady stuff from @DocFromDaGloâ--ï¸

If you morons would RTFS you would see that it clearly says "Researchers have nearly doubled the size of a handful of Florida ants." Anyone who's not an idiot knows "handful of Florida ants" is an eggcorn for the colloquial expression "Florida aunts" which is a Southern Georgia expression meaning you suspect someone is inbred. Florida aunts means cousins or sisters or mothers or other taboo relations. So this story is about that. About researchers doubling the size of a handful of Florida Aunts. So it's ok that I have the fantasies I do and one day we'll all be together as one happy family.

Nah, for me it's not about any particular website being censored. I object to them fucking with the users' chat messages. I've paid for over a hundred games on Steam and I certainly know how to find torrents on my own without getting one of my Steam Friends to paste me a link. I just think it's idiotic for them to even bother trying to control what the users of their CDN talk about in "private" chat rooms to their friends. Can they? Obviously, they can. Doesn't mean I have to like it, or keep using their CDN. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mods are all I really play anymore anyway, so it's no big loss to toss my Steam account.
