Fucking slashdot ate all my [tags], and I can't edit posts. Why can't I edit posts?

I see you went to [school]. It could be argued that [school] produces bad graduates because we found [statistical anomaly] in [statistical report] from [your graduating year]. Therefore it could be argued that you are a sub-standard and poorly educated hippie, whose only purpose in life it is to hinder hard-working Americans from doing their jobs. Think about it. It could be argued that you're causing thousands of people to not be able to do their jobs. You could literally be taking their jobs. Literally taking them. Literally. Also you have weird sexual fetishes.

If I make a request for a video of my car being pulled over, then that video should be delivered.

If I make a request for a video of someone else being pulled over, then that video should not be delivered, unless

  • 1) I am acting on behalf of said person, with written consent, ie lawyer or friend/family, or
  • 2) a judge signs a document forcing the police to release the video, for example in case of a criminal investigation.

Why does the American situation have to be so damn complicated all the time? God damn political maneuvering is all anyone can do these days. Not my fault, not my problem, go fuck yourself.

Those kinds of lawsuits require money not being made. No one is not making money here. GNOME isn't not making money off of Groupons tablet being called Gnome. GNOME just wants to keep their name to themselves. Which is hard to achieve these days, because there are only so many words in the dictionary. So the short version is Groupon says they can use Gnome, and have filed documents with the trademark people saying they want to, but GNOME says Groupon can't use Gnome, because GNOME already filed papers with the trademark people long ago. Thing is though that GNOME filed different papers than Groupon is now filing, so GNOME might not have a case, but that's why they want money so they can attack attack ATTACK! and keep their name for themselves.

As an aside, lemon juice teaches the chemical properties of an acid just as well as a stronger acid; probably better, because instead of getting distracted melting stuff, which doesn't have much value in understanding the chemistry, you'll have to make use of electrical properties to do anything cool. And electrical potential is the whole point of those lessons. Heck, even a potato probably teaches that easier than a strong acid. We made a potato-powered electrical motor in my 4th grade class.

Every single part of what you just said is boring. Why did kids want chem sets? It damn well wasn't to learn chemistry. It was to melt things and blow things up. Because those things are cool.

As the old saying goes "We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias..."

But that's not true anymore is it? These "women" now exist on the internet, and as long as they keep trying to be "women" on the internet, people will call them out for it. People call "women" skanks because they fill their profiles with pictures of themselves looking like skanks. People harass "women" because they keep pointing out how unfairly they're being treated because they're "women".

There are now "women" in gaming, "women" in business, "women" fighting for "women" and more power to the "women". Why? If these "women" would just stop trying so damn hard, then there would be room for everyone.

But that'd mean having to compete with everyone else on equal terms, wouldn't it? The "women" wouldn't be able to rely on their pretty looks and the empowerment of other "women", and they'd receive no special attention from all the nerds on the internet. We'd all be equals, each anonymous entity carrying its own weight, relying on words to enforce their ideas. But we can't have that. Only "women" can be equal.

I hate hardware and for all intents and purposes it can go shove itself up its own ass. As a result I very much love the cloud, no matter how much of a buzzword it is. Let someone else worry about the tedious busywork it is to get one piece of hardware to talk to another. Oh what's that? A disk died? I don't give a damn because I don't have to drive 30 minutes each direction just to change it. Ha!
