Comment CORRECTION (Score 2) 414 414

'We won't survive another 1,000 years without escaping our fragile planet'. Should read; 'We won't survive another 1,000 years without escaping our fragile planet, at current rates of growth and consumption'. It's extremely small minded/short sighted of the worlds most famous physicist, to assume the current system will keep chugging along, with business as usual, for a THOUSAND more years. He should do a little historical research...

Submission + - Brand Advocate Fired Over Tweet->

Mike Allton writes: "Adria Richards, brand advocate for SendGrid, has been fired. While attending a Python conference, she sent a Tweet to alert conference organizers that inappropriate behavior was taking place. Organizers escorted the developers from the conference, but one developer employer went so far as to fire that developer. Consequently, Adria began receiving threats and SendGrid is under a DDoS attack, and now they've fired Adria in response."

Now we have an app that spouts the most overused word in English history; AMAZING. everything's AMAZING, have you noticed how AMAZING everything is these days? It's such an AMAZING word, I'd be AMAZED if anyone ever used any other non-AMAZING adjective besides AMAZING, ever again.

Submission + - China's Attempt at Creating a Master Race?->

Titan1080 writes: It’s not exactly news that China is setting itself up as a new global superpower, is it? While Western civilization chokes on its own gluttony like a latter-day Marlon Brando, China continues to buy up American debt and lock away the world’s natural resources. But now, not content to simply laugh and make jerk-off signs as they pass us on the geopolitical highway, they’ve also developed a state-endorsed genetic-engineering project.

Comment Why? (Score 0) 67 67

Why on Earth did they choose to put part of the telescope in Africa? Don't they realize how unstable South Africa is becoming? The natives are killing whites in unprecedented numbers and it looks like, longish term, that the country is going to devolve much like other African nations that suddenly decide they don't need help from 'whitey'. I think it was a very bad choice, and probably one they made out of political correctness, which is absolutely ludicrous.

Comment insurance companies (Score -1, Flamebait) 206 206

The part about the insurance companies really pisses me off. First of all, it's REQUIRED that we insure almost EVERYTHING now. and then the greedy jewish fucks actually get legislation passed, ensuring that it's nearly impossible to recoup any money after losses. Meanwhile they remain one of the most profitable businesses in human history.

it's funny how, activities that literally don't help human advancement (procreation) are considered 'humanity'. yes, i'm an atheist. and yes, i hate trannies, faggots, etc. take it back to reddit, most of the world doesn't give a shit about your goddamn crusade against normality.
