Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I have never seen you criticize that use of a tragedy.
So? If I were less credulous, I might think you merely a cheap manipulator, trying to make others do your dance. But you'd never be less than forthright in your dealings.
Is that your idea of an April Fool's joke?
Okay this is last month's news and not a joke, but anything that reads like "BigName Telco Admits They Were Evil" has me waiting for someone to say "April Fools".
It's f*ucking EVERYWHERE now, too.
The government is not writing checks out of the general fund to pay people to drill for oil.
So, the trillions of taxpayer dollars we've spent on wars to protect energy interests just don't count? The hundreds of thousands of lives that were spent in these wars, counting the civilian casualities?
You might have an answer to that question if you weren't one of the "people who don't really understand this stuff".
And you're worried about 30% of the cost of solar panels. You're a special kind of person, you are.
Is there any other mainstream technology that repeatedly makes outlandish claims, and just shrugs it off as if it never happen when those claims don't deliver, and yet gets massive taxpayer-sponsored support?
Coal, hydraulic fracturing, the pharmaceutical industry. The defense industry.
Shall I go on?
But using a tragedy like that in a prophetic mode is tasteless. As tasteless as the idiotic Indiana protests designed to distract from Her Majesty's email fiasco, and SecState Kerry's rodeo-clownery. Or the whip cracking on Menendez's back to keep those Democrat Senators on the plantation.
Were there less at stake, maybe some of this buffoonery would be amusing.
I think it is the government subsidy part that upsets so many.
But every single form of energy is subsidized by the government. So why are we singling out solar again?
Do you feel the same way about nuclear?
Best post ever: Bennett Hasselton writing a 25,000 word stream of verbal-vomit about how Nerval's Lobster should write those idiotic Dice spam posts.
Never ascribe to stupidity that which can be explained by greedy self-interest. She's not disconnected from reality, she's trying to disconnect you and me from reality.
She doesn't seem to be very good at it.
I'm your core.
Taking a dump.
And trust me, you do NOT want to see what's backing up!
But I'm color blind...
That my first thought wasn't "oh, it's Apr 1st". No. My first thought was "Oh great, now the editors have left the building and whatever story gets the most upvotes will hit the front page. Time to leave for good".
