Hello dumbass, British sites do not use American English and the opposite does not happen either. You don't like it, go make your own Slashdot instead of endlessly bitching and moaning about what the Americans have done. So the world doesn't revolve around America. Go! Go! Let us know when you're finished!

And yet, towering over all of these in importance is the kind of shirt the spokesman is wearing when he makes the announcement that humanity has arrived at some great new achievement.

"If you can force a rocket scientist, celebrating the accomplishment of a lifetime, to cry and grovel and beg forgiveness on international TV for wearing a shirt, you are not unempowered."

Comment Can a Hillary supporter step up and explain? (Score 3, Insightful) 634

Why on Earth would anyone ever actually vote for Hillary Clinton? She is a horrid shitstain of a human being who belongs in prison. She is power-mad and worse, part of a dynasty. We don't need that shit in America. So, who are you people who support her? More importantly, WHY do you support her? How can you possibly reward her lawbreaking with an election to the highest office in the land? The arguments I've seen so far are that she's a woman so women should vote for her, and voting Hillary is a kind of protest vote against Trump. Look, there's already Sanders for people who want to throw their votes away, you don't need two protest candidates. I am really geniunely curious how so many of you out there can support her.

Oh, and for anyone who doesn't think it was a big deal: what if Senator Ted Cruz kept his own private email server that was promptly rooted by several foreign countries, and routed classified emails through there? Kind of puts the right perspective on Hillary's crimes, don't you think?

How much traffic do New Zealand and Peru exchange every day? Sure, you can have that bridge across the ocean...but at what cost? Just look at one of those night satellite photos that shows all the splashes of light in the world, and build your satellites near them. That's where your traffic will originate and terminate.

Comment Drones don't have cockpits (Score 0) 30

You won't be in the "cockpit" of the drone, because drones don't have cockpits. By the way, can we get rid of the word "cockpit"? It means "a pit or enclosure for cockfights" or "a place noted for especially bloody, violent, or long-continued conflict". If we could talk about aviation without reminding ourselves that we put innocent animals to fight for our amusement in blood sports, that would be great.

I don't believe it. Is Slashdot going to stop those ridiculous paid links to What about the relentless left-wing social justice stories that blame nerds for everything wrong in the world? What about constant news-today-gone-tomorrow political stories that are general news, at best? I don't see any of those going away under any kind of new management. Irritating as fuck content has been around since the Jon Katz stories wouldn't stop appearing.

Comment Re:Lots of toxic chemicals are usd every day (Score -1, Troll) 96

That's not a solution. Toxic chemicals are still being discharged into the environment. The toxins are the problem, not the ventilation of the area. There will need to be new laws and new regulations governing these dangerous machines. I'm sure the good people at the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) will come up with some. What are environmentalists good for, if not ensuring a nice world for humans to live in? Even if they have to regulate it out of existence.

Where did that comment about Victorians come in? Wow, that was out of left field. What's next, the Scythians? Bonobonese?

Turns out, fatherhood is a horrible deal for men, too. That plus marriage are the main sources of men being divorce raped and thrown in debtors' prison. Did you know we, in 2016, actually have debtors' prison? Yes, we brought it back. Not even joking. Some progressive society we live in.

I think the point of the system is "don't commit crimes". Just follow that one rule and you'll be fine. Also, I'm not really sure if you've ever been in jail, but the people there are Jerry Springer-watchers, NASCAR fans, pro sports supporters, Christians, and rednecks. Hardly anyone our society will miss.
