Let's not play dumb.

We know the NSA isn't going to spy on "our greatest ally" at all.

If there is one thing in life I have learned, its that you should *never* fuck with Israel.
Just dont. It doesnt matter who you are, where you live, or what you do. You will regret it.

Also ensure you never say anything critical of Israel, no matter what your complaint is. Its automatically anti-Semitism, which makes you "fair game" for "justice".
For example ( please note this is a hypothetical statement, *please* dont kill or torture me):
"I do not like drinking the tap water in Israel, it tastes like a swimming pool with all the chlorine" ---Anti-Semitism right there guys.

Learn from the mistakes of others.

But lets assume for a second that the rest of the world had the NSA's capability and disregard for human dignity and privacy... I could go on and on about the moral implications and what not but the fact of the matter is this argument was resolved thousands of years ago with the simple line: "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind" It's not a hard concept to grasp. WE are better than that. We don't need to do this. It's wrong, we all know it. It should stop immediately.

Im sorry, but the whole 'we are better than that' stuff would be all perfectly fine and dandy in some alternate ideologically pure rainbow unicorn reality, which (unfortunately) we do not live in.

People need to get real about this stuff. Complaining on the internet is *not* going to change the way things are done in the US govt and all its departments. There are too many fingers in too many pies, too much money and power is at stake. At the end of the day, nothing is really going to change.

Spys will keep on spying, military will keep on blowing people into small peices and putting freedom bullets into heads, the corrupt will keep, get my drift.

The past ten odd years Ive been reading on /. week in and week out all the evil, corruption and other nasty shit that goes on in Govt and in business, and ten odd years of cries, wailing and gnashing of teeth ( god I love that phrase) in the comments. Nothing changes. It doesnt seem like it ever will change for the better...maybe in tiny ways, but overall, nothing changes.

Humanity doesnt change. Atrocities, brutality, oppression, religious never changes. It never stops.

I dont have much hope for the future, the future looks dark and fearful.

Fucking troll. Who the fuck cares what your favorite DOS game is.

I the fuck care.What I dont the fuck care about is that you dont the fuck care.

Anyways, I remember playing LHX in the early 90's on a 486 with much fondness, was a kick ass game back then. Then Falcon 4 came out, and in the early 90's, that was mindblowing.

Comment: Time to pack up... (Score 1) 567

Swedish farmers dont believe the climate scientists and all of the climate science evidence that has been collected and analysed.

Well, it was fun guys, but all the climate scientists the world over now need to pack their things, close everything down and start looking for a new career. Climate Science is now officially dead and wrong.

The Swedish farmers have spoken.

I've downloaded the Titanfall Gameplay video and mplayer definitely says it's 30 fps, so I'm guessing it's bullshit.

VIDEO: [H264] 1280x720 24bpp 30.000 fps 3000.0 kbps (366.2 kbyte/s)
Also, even if it worked - what's the point of having a 60 fps video for a console game that can barely get 30?

WTF, why are you going on about some video file you downloaded?
The article talks about YOUTUBE support for 60fps videos.

So you can shoot them in your house?? and they can't change you with anything for doing that??

Some needs to take that part all the way though the court system.

If you ever shoot a SWAT team member in the middle of the raid, Its pretty likely they will shoot you dead.

Nobody is going to be alive to take it to the court system.

How about you guys fix the problem first instead of resorting to guns.
