Corporate dystopias are much more fun than real life socialist dystopias which don't have exclusive rights for anyone. Although if Administration steps in, nobody wins.
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).
Do they? I know there's a premium on popup ads and interstitial pages, but I've never met anyone who said "wow, what an amazing ad jumping around and flashing lights at me, let's click on that instead of checking out the content I came for". Maybe some people pay more for them but I wouldn't call it a well advised move.
The most interesting part of the article for me is the idea of real time bidding - maybe web adverts will finally start paying as well as print adverts.
That actually adds to the cool factor, for my money. Speaking of which I keep throwing money at the screen and I still don't have one of those butterflies, more tech details here.
Killing isn't bad when it's mosquitoes. You've supped your last on me you little bloodsucking bastards!
Some nutter uses a syringe (!) to inject your eyeballs with fish guts in his garage.
Awesome if it's got practical uses though.
Oh yes, and as for the feminist conspiracy, it's not as though it's a big secret: https://eyebeam.org/events/art...
That's only one area of many where feminists try to rewrite wikipedia en masse to reflect their ideology.
You mean this submission with the link in the usual place?
In rebuttal to your rebuttal:
1) If women perceive your "kind and friendly" behavior as "creepy," then you are not behaving "kind and friendly." You are, in fact, behaving like a "creep."
Or she's a neurotic hypersensitive feminist. How's that for equality of outcome.
It's not possible to sexually objectify someone. Even objects intended for sex must be made to look like sexually attractive people/body parts in order to successfully achieve their goal. You can have a very impersonal relationship with someone else but objectification is nonsense.
Yes, I submitted an article about how Wikipedia canned a gaggle of feminist editors from Wikipedia for spewing crap on gender related entries and it never saw the light of day, yet this agitprop makes the grade? Okay, the day will come and indeed is coming when this clear bigotry will reflect very badly indeed on slashdot editors. I know I'd certainly never hire one of them based on their past performance.
Most women get it and ignore the feminists
Exactly, the only way the summary makes any sense to me is if you replace the word "woman" with "feminist".
Men tend to slip back to pseudo-savagery if women aren't around in a workplace for a while, and when a woman comes in, they tend do remain savage
No, they really don't. They may make jokes and talk frankly about women, but guess what, women do the same thing about men. Are you calling women savages now?
VAT in Ireland is 23%, I'm not sure I'd call that low.
I'd agree with this to a certain extent but I'd be cautious about making everything voluntary, some foundational skills in math, geography, history, language etc should be a requirement. Also life economics like mortgages, pension plans, investments and savings. The entire property bubble was an organised ram raid by the banks on middle class savings, students need to know how that happened so they don't fall for it or any other bubble again. And while we're at it the legal ramifications of things like marriage and parenthood should be dealt with right next to sex ed.
Ah now, how sad would it be if his mum was condemning him too. While arguments can be made for and against unconditional love, more often than not it's helped people get back on their feet after they do really stupid things. It's not as though he's got a shortage of critics.
