Comment Acer Aspire V15 Nitro (Score 1) 325 325

I just got an Acer Aspire V15 Nitro and one of the things I like about it, is that it runs quite cool even after compiling software for half an hour. Then again, that doesn't require the NVIDIA card to do anything, and I don't know how that would affect the temperature. As I just got it, my experience with it is limited, but I like it so far. It's a very fast machine.

Comcast Executives Appear To Share Cozy Relationships With Regulators 63 63

v3rgEz (125380) writes A month before Comcast's announcement of a $45B takeover of rival Time-Warner, Comcast's top lobbyist invited the US government's top antitrust regulators to share the company's VIP box at the Sochi Olympics. A Freedom of Information Act request from Muckrock reveals that the regulators reluctantly declined, saying "it sounds like so much fun" but the pesky "rules folks" would frown on it, instead suggesting a more private dinner later.

So because they are large makes them evil?

No. That just makes them powerful. There are concerns that need to be addressed when benign institutions gain power. Like that bank, that used to take care of your money until they became too big to fail. Remember that one? It was funny. I still can't stop laughing while I fill in my taxes.

Comment God loves a nice killing spree. (Score 1) 517 517

I'm pretty sure killing, kidnapping and raping is forbidden regardless of religion.

And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? ... Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. -- Numbers 31:15-18

I'm probably "not interpreting this correctly" or "taking it out of context" or whatever religious people say when confronted with their cognitive dissonance, but it seems the Bible is just fine with killing, kidnapping and raping.
