Part of the problem with Cyanogenmod is that very late (recent) versions of Android are available for phones which can barely run them. I have an OG Motorola Droid A855 (the very first Android phone) and you can get Android 4.4.2 for it! I tried it and it runs so horribly slow that it takes about 30 seconds to respond to each button press. I backed down to CM 10.1 and it is MUCH more responsive. It still gets stupid and slow as in everyone else's experience, but it will run acceptably for a few days before it needs another reboot.
I think that's at least part of the problem, people are expecting old hardware to run the latest and greatest OS without a hitch. It'd be like trying to run Win7 on a 486. You might be able to do it but it would be a horrendous experience.
To quote a commenter above:
reality is there will be collateral damage in fighting terrorists sometimes
if you travel to the middle east, don't be surprise if terrorists grab you and hold/torture/behead you
Windows Phones (at least the Lumias).
Yup. My next phone will be a Windows Phone. I'm so fucking sick of Android.
You can "" or you can look it up.
Your generation is useless.
Cinavia was cracked about 2 years ago and public tools for removing it from streams have been available for well over a year (often for money). Additionally, there are other (free) tools that attempt to round out the gaps that are left when the Cinavia signal is stripped out.
Even Wikipedia has this info.
This shouldn't have been let out of the firehose. WTF is nerdy about this?
You're joking. Liquid mercury? Come on, show of hands: Who among us has not at some point in our lives broken open a thermometer in order to play with the mercury inside? That's a nerd rite of passage.
Hell, I'm old enough to remember when they made little maze puzzles with a blob of mercury inside that you'd try to get from one corner to the other. Those were the days before parents raised kids like veal. We had pocket knives, for chrissake. Can you imagine millennial parents giving their precious offspring pocket knives? I had my own
but they still don't seriously threaten our society
exactly because we have vaccines, you fucking moron
and if not enough vaccinate, the diseases find vectors to proliferate again, AND they have a chance to get lucky and develop new strains that can get around our exisitng vaccines, threatening everyone period
everyone has to get vaccinated. if not, the person is ignorant, irresponsible and dangerous to all of our health. if you don't agree with that statement, you don't know what the fuck you are talking about and/ or you are blindly selfishly irresponsible
you have no freedom to choose something that threatens other people's lives (nevermind your own)
What's strange about any of that?
The carved shells? They were from a Mossberg 500 Tactical Persuader pump action shotgun.
Fuck your aliens.
I know, right? It wasn't aliens that built the pyramids, or anything supernatural. It's stupid to think that.
Everybody knows it was Anunnaki, our ancestors, the Shining Ones, who gave this technology to humans over 250,000 years ago.
Yeah, but "living in a large aluminum ball in his parents' basement" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
Whenever I hear of a story like this, I am reminded of the scene in Martin Scorsese's great movie, Raging Bull, in which Jake LaMotta, played by Robert DiNiro, speaks of an upcoming opponent to an associate:
"I'll put yous both in the ring and give yous both a fuckin' beatin', then yous can both fuck each other!"
Haven't we lost enough to the stupidity of our intellectual property laws? Could it be time to revisit whether or not they're actually doing what they were meant to do?
God (Via his assistant) unleashes all manner of misery and suffering upon Job, killing his family, ruining him financially and inflicting him with horrible diseases entirely to show that Job, as a loyal Jew, will remain obedient and loyal no matter what circumstances throw at him - and sure enough, at the end, God restores his health and wealth. Though not the dead family.
Not only that, but he did it basically on a dare.
God: "Job will do anything for me, no matter what"
Satan: "no way"
God: "yes way"
Satan: "prove it or GTFO"
God: "watch this..."
i see it as the genius of biochemical warfare by plants
our livers have been in an evolutionary arms race with plants for hundreds of millions of years. they make a substance that kills, maims, disorients, or deters us. one up plants. our livers do their best to mop it up. one up animals. rinse repeat
perversely, we've developed a taste for some of those substances. like cayenne pepper or horseradish, as a paradoxically enjoyable taste. or heroin or cocaine, as a disorienting drug
in a way, the plant still wins when we get addicted to them, like these bees. drug use is just slow motion suicide. it might not kill us immediately, but it brings us back for more, and more and more, to finish the job
Now, do you have statistics to back up your implication, that in real life police are more often wrong than right?
No, but the consequences of real life police being wrong are pretty fucking serious. And they're wrong a lot more often than people care to admit.
