Comment where men are men, women are also men, and .... (Score 1, Interesting) 225

Its pretty obvious what is happening here.
Extrapolating from good old 'where men are men, women are also men, and children are FBI agents' we can safely assume this is an FBI sting operation aiming to lure Snowden with some juicy ass photos into leaving Russia. FBI went one step further preemptively asserting their answer to obligatory TITS or GTFO.

not this again :/

Recent talk by Sheldon Cooper sums this topic pretty nicely (around 35.30 minutes in) https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
We DONT CARE about feelings, we care about absolutes. I wont cater to some alien (to me) social norms just because you are a precious snowflake, I will tell you outright what is wrong ('this code is garbage' etc).

This is also pretty good and on topic https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Comment Re:Fake overclocking (Score 2) 89

My AMD FX-8320E can easily have the base clocked cranked up to around 4.5Ghz-4.6Ghz..... I have yet to find a game or program that my chip can't just blow through

  types that don't know shit about CPU arches and think cranking an i3 is gonna somehow make them competitive with an i7, so for them...yay I guess?

oh, how wrong you are :)
try World of Tanks ( http://worldoftanks.eu/ ), SINGLE THREADED game written in python (and some ActionScript!) of all the languages :)
You will find your FX overclocked to 4.6GHz barely pushing 60fps, and being beaten by $30 Intel cpus. Doesnt really matter if its Core2, pentium, i3 i5 or i7, all that counts is MHz and raw IPC.
