What the fuck? Do you call rape victims sluts and publicly humiliate them? Even if you think her lawsuits are misguided and quixotic, she was clearly wronged, and her lawsuits are a legitimate attempt at getting legal justice. Getting back at her by posting her nudes to a discussion forum shows how juvenile and idiotic many tor supporters are.

If Tor is a great way to distribute stolen nudes, sell drugs, launder money, etc., then perhaps it should be blocked. What's the benefit? China blocks it, it seems to be entirely useful to people who want to get up to no good.

But it's true, right? If a cheap Dell off-the-shelf computer was far better than the current generation, that would definitely show how terrible the current consoles are. Instead, you need to spend maybe $800 minimum, you probably want to build the computer yourself and therefor need to have the time and the knowledge to build the computer yourself and then deal with any potential issues...

It's not really a story that you can do better than a console if you're willing to put in a larger amount of money, time, and expertise.

A bunch of nerds could order one, then wait six months for it to arrive. They could install a version of Linux on it, play around with it for about 20 minutes, and then talk about how maybe they'll use it for XMBC. Then they could just let it gather dust on some shelf until it gets thrown away in a few years.

Sennheiser headphones aren't cheap (certainly not 1/5th the cost, 75% is more like it) and have their own built-in marketing cost. Sennheiser advertises heavily as well. Sure they are good headphones, but they play the exact same game Beats does.

Don't over-value the Dre name. Sure I like NWA as much as the next guy, but if MC Ren released a headphone that was total shit, people would call him on it. Consumer Reports wouldn't give the headphones sounds good/too expensive type reviews.

Obviously Nike profits, and some shoe margins are stupid-high, but in general I'd say the quality of Nike shoes is far higher than what you'd find for $15. Payless shoes hurt to wear and fall apart quickly.

Beats headphones generally get positive reviews, even if they're not considered top in their field. I've listened to them at electronic stores and was impressed. Maybe you can get somewhat cheaper headphones that are better, but certainly cheap headphones aren't as good. Consumer Reports magazine said as much.

Instead of asking Slashdot such a silly question you could also just google getting a gsm sim card in the us.

Lo and behold!

#1) "The best Prepaid SIM Cards"
#2) "SIM Cards - Best Buy"

It's been trivial to do this for about a decade and 5 seconds of googling got me the answer. This is one of the stupidest ask slashdots ever, and they are almost all incredibly stupid. I'm not looking and I'm going to guess tImothy put this story up.

Yup. Fuck timothy.

S5 is smaller, better screen (even if it's .1" smaller), better camera, faster, has a micro SD slot, replaceable batter better build quality (my wife recently got the S5 over the similar Nexus 5). Water resistance is kind of cool, I've heard of people destroying their phones that way.

Not that the G2 is a crap phone, I just think something you spend a lot of time on is probably worth spending an extra $.35/day or whatever that works out to.

How has "redskin" turned into a term of honor or a word to be proud of? Nobody would ever say it now, unless it's in a historical context or when talking about the sports team. It's an archaic, vaguely racist term from a time when Indians were generally depicted as war-like savages. It's like a Chinese person saying "Chinaman" is a term to be proud of,

And I think you'll find not all Indians are offended at the drop of the hat, or non-Indians aren't. If you really are Indian you have very weird self-identity issues.

You might have mail.
