OK, show of hands... before today, who here would have thought "double Irish arrangement" meant something kinky?

LaserDisc's biggest problem was that it was read-only. Compared to "I can watch AND record ANYTHING", the market for "I can only watch studio films" was tiny. AFAIK, the very first LaserDiscs were one hour PER SIDE, so even the first model could hold a 2-hour movie on a single disc. That was the point of its existence.

Pro tip: you only need to buy the 3 old ones, not all 6.
Fucking fantastic. One more thing I'll need to turn off in every account on every computer I use.
I wish there was one great browser, and not three OK ones.
Does the title "the superbowl of stupidity" refer to the content of your post? Because you seem to be forgetting how Apple did after entering the lackluster MP3 player market, the lackluster smartphone market, and the lackluster tablet market -- each time, entering an existing space and selling orders of magnitude more products than their competitors. Maybe, just maybe, they deserve the benefit of the doubt here.
They included a typo in the summary for extra authenticity. "A r presentative from..."
But yeah, thanks for the reminder that it's "don't bother to visit Slashdot" day.
"The FBI said they do not believe the incident is related to terrorism."
WOW! Seriously. This is great news. I just figured EVERYTHING was ALWAYS called "terrorism" now. Is someone finally figuring out that if everything is terrorism, then nothing is terrorism? Do we no longer need to invoke the boogeyman every time something bad happens? Oh happy day.
> You turn it over, half the bottle dumps onto your food.
Insightful? REALLY? I didn't read that they're making the ketchup thinner or removing the small hole in the end of the cap. The article shows a glass ketchup bottle, true, but the other bottles shown are the more common squeezable plastic kind. The last time I used a glass ketchup bottle was maybe 10 years ago in a restaurant.
Ditto. Things that never stuck in a decade of English classes that finally clicked, made sense, and stuck in my first semester of High School Spanish include gerunds, infinitives, and the subjunctive.
"... problem appears to be getting worse..." [emphasis mine]
Anybody want to bust out some science and actually try measuring something, or just wanna sit around and whine?
Maybe -- just maybe -- you're hearing about it more because thanks to the Internet, there is more info about everything in front of you at all times. So perhaps that explains why you're seeing more bad science? (And everything else.)
Or maybe you could ask the tiny fucking supercomputer that's in your pocket with instant access to 98% of all human knowledge and voice recognition about the state of science today. Jesus fucking christ.
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..."
Wow, 24 hours after launch? That's AMAZING! That is, if you ignore the fact that precise measurements and high-res images of the real thing have been online for months at apple.com... but other than that, yeah, quite a feat.
LITERALLY 2 weeks? MOVE! You don't have a second to lose.
