Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
No matter how prepared you think you are, they always get you in the end.
I wanted him to stay alive because I cared about him. He needed help. I highlighted the aftermath so that others could see the aftermath, which is rarely considered or talked about.
It is the most selfish decision a person can make. However, they're usually not in the position to properly evaluate the consequences.
I would prefer it being shown every night primetime just to keep it in the forefront of everyone's mind. Just or unjust, we as citizens need to be held accountable for those we elect.
I'll not get into the debate(s) about elections, voting power, corruption, etc. That's its own set of topics.
I've never seen a human die, but I've seen one in a tragic accident that was very lucky to live. The screams and cries still make me shudder.
Animals have evolved to hide pain, as they are more likely to become prey when injured. In general, they are quiet yet aggressive in a traumatic accident and close to death.

I used to not think so until a friend of mine did it. The emotional impact was staggering. I was sad, but then I saw how his wife reacted, and I'm still mad at him for doing it. It's been 3+ years, and she still posts on his Facebook page as a way to cope. He did it at work, too, and it really had a major impact on everyone who worked with him. He was well liked, but there was still the normal gossip and jokes. Everyone was ever said anything felt guilty for a long time.
The thing is that everything about it is irrational. The act itself, and the stream of grief and guilt that follows.
I have to also mention that his life insurance policy didn't cover it. His wife had the funeral costs, credit card debt and 100k+ in student loan debt she now has to cover.
It's the most selfish act that a person can do. Even with mental illness to consider (he wasn't diagnosed with anything to my knowledge, but I have to think there were some issues), it's hard to forgive what he did to his wife and family(and he was a friend of mine).
Please re-read my post. As low as your reading comprehension seems to be, it's only 3 direct sentences. Let me break it down for you again:
- You take any opportunity to let people know you hate Fox News, even if you have to take someone out of context to bring it up.
- This adds nothing to the topic which is being discussed.
I seriously have no idea what orifice you pulled those assumptions about me out of three simple statements. I'll assume that anyone who disagrees or calls you out on something gets the same treatment of personal attacks and diarrhea of the mouth. No one cares about your opinions, so seriously- grow up.
Please go see a doctor. You have a bad case of being a total fuckwad.
I bet you bitch about Fox News deliberately taking things out of context, too.
You added nothing to the discussion about the actual topic, so please do the rest of us a favor and go play somewhere else.
I'll leave another sarcastic defense on why it wasn't fixed since the purchase.
In all honesty, I was really upset when MS bought them.
Now there are hippies in my trolls!
Not cool.Not cool. Vegetarian trolls can't even make dick jokes, so it's really just a waste of time.
After your clarification, yes- that's some good advice. Inside and outside of recovery, I've seen alot of people fall with internet gambling. And online cards is an easy way to kill some time. Add in a bit of money, and bad things always seem to happen.
I also see your advice was based on your experience. It looks like we both live full lives, and it is a nice thing to wish others the same thing.
It looks like we both came across wrong, and I was the one who took out alot of my frustration on you. I'm going through a hard time right now, and its easy to lash out at a stranger. I don't mean that as an excuse, just a sort of explanation that I'm not normally like that. My apologies, and I wish you the best.
I've read that ECoG's are being tested in prosthesis, which is very cool. I would think that a less invasive alternative (BCI is one, correct?) would become available before "brain implants" would be offered to the general public. The challenge as I understand it is regarding the sensitivity of the sensors, as well as the signal-to-noise ratio. Is there alot of development in this area, or is it limited to NASA?
Thanks for the tips. Outside of another device, I think keyboard remapping will be the most useful. The number pad is close to the mouse, so I can map common keys there. My mouse has extra buttons, so I'll see if I can remap those.
Good talking to you!
