Comment Re:Complete Garbage (Score 1) 591

Most I see ITT dont understand science at all it seems. Lots of people here holding onto science as truth, fact, and so on in the same way those moronic theists do.

They need to say unto themselves: Science is a process of discovering what is most likely true. Scientific knowledge is what we believe is true based on the evidence in record and our understanding of it. Science is not, and does not, claim to be truth. In order to have truth you must have ALL the evidence in records and a complete understanding of it; We do not have this, on any subject. We only have 'what is good enough to say this might be true'.

We have competing theories in quantum physics that all have evidence behind them. Do this brainless fucks think all these theories are thought to be true and absolute?

Once someone says something is absolute you know they are no longer using logic and have not considered the whole swarm of things that could be at work. They have shown themselves to be the same as the dogmatic shits they rail against.

Actually, IT DOES HAVE THE SAME FUCKEN MEANING. It is a hypothesis of what is likely to be true based on the evidence in record. Science NEVER EVER claims certainty on anything, even if we have done the experiments a million times. The only difference I will allow is that a scientific theory has been better vetted, has more evidence in record. The reason the word theory is used is is because science must be adaptable to change. If we do not recognize a theory as something who's truth can still be questioned we cannot update what we believe is most likely to be true based on the evidence in record.

Read the scienftic theory wiki also, and research what other actual scientists have said about the concept over time. The meanings are the fucken same. I think people must think that theory means 'a guess with no evidence" or some dumb shit like that.

When people of science fail to argue this correctly they do damage to progress. Becaus eyou are wrong on this line item, and you are, others will figure all you have to say is garbage and ignore it.

Ok. STFU and never talk about science again. Science does not offer PROOF, EVER, you dumb stupid dumb fuck. Science only produces "what is most likely true based on the evidence in record." It NEVER, EVER, declares anything to be proved. It NEVER says anything is 100% true. EVER.

What science says about evolution is: based on the evidence gathered thus far this is what is most likely to be true. Only people who dont actually understand since treat it as truth and fact. II have no idea what the fuck you dumb asses do when science updates its findings. You fucks are as bad as theists when you use the line of thinking you are. Fucken potato thinking, and a potato understanding.

Welcome to the internet, where many people are exposed to new words from across the globe and add them to their vocabulary. I have never blamed others, or found it annoying, when I have had to look up a word. When arguing with Pilkunnussija I cannot say I am the slightest bit concerned as to what annoys them.

lemme also add ... Comma fuckers generally do not understand linguistics and how language works. They only understand the rules they were taught and adhere to them like bad religions. They refuse to accept words as words, grammatic styles that dont adhere to their world view, or alternative spellings. In general they are bad people :)

We live in a world of spelling and grammar checkers. They should be employed for formal documents. Out side of that people who complain about spelling, grammar, and so on when the average person mentally auto corrects readily comes from a sad place. A place that has put too much emphasis on trite line items of no value.

When people use 1337 $peak or prince like short hand, it is a style choice. We've seen countless blurbs on the internet that has debunked the 'children do not know how to spell' bs. Literacy rates are the highest they have ever been. When one chooses to be a bigot based on language styles one has chosen to allow a line item of no importance disrupt communication. Time and time again we see people who were readily understood by the masses have their conversations dismissed for a typo, a grammatical error, or a style choice. Similar to how asshats misuse godwin. Pilkunnussija serve no purpose other than to derail legitimate conversation. They are nothing more than trolls with who have invested far too much emotional investment in a particular protocol. They often mock people with other dialects; and 31337 $pea/ is most definitely an actual dialect with its own rules.

Intelligent people, heh, your average fucken joe, can #1 readily adapt to the protocol changes they will encounter, #2 are not attached to any language 'rules' because they know that language is continuously evolve, and #3 never judge people based on the protocol and only the content or ideas expressed.

Pilkunnussija are basically assholes and trolls, and they are this way because their desire to have everything match the rules they were taught causes them a great deal of emotional discomfort. They often hurt inside when you miss a comma that needed fucking.

Unless its a technical document that needs to be very precise please just cram the comma fucking in ones cock holster.

Pilkunnussija are worthless fuckers who don't actually understand language. They are like the teacher who disrupts the class for someone quietly chewing gum. Language bias disrupts actual communication. Pointing out, or ripping on, language constructs that are not to your liking doesn't make you intelligent; it makes you a disruptive asshole. If you cannot get over the use or R U 31337 you need to know you are the problem, and not the writer. The intelligent people, or at least honest people, who want to engage in actual communication have more adaptive protocols and are more concerned with the content than the wrapper.

TLDR: Grammar Nazi's please fuck off.

Comment The Death Of Fax Machines Has Been Grossly... (Score 0) 395

The death of fax machines has been grossly exaggerated. They are every-fucken-where. VOIP and the t38... so many places to break... and yet lawyers, real estate folks, medical establishments, and companies too afraid to tell their clients 'no dont fax it, scan it and email it' proliferate the landscape. I suspect voice mail to be die sooner than fax machines. Or that voice to text becomes a standard, and not paid for, service. I hate them so much I logged in for the first time in a very long time to post this...

anyone who has a collection of computer magazines from the 80s knows this is pretty much bullshit. Girls are plastered all over Ahoy, Compute! Compute! Gazette, Family Computing, and every magazine of the era. Women features as programmers and artist. is a great archive and you can use google to find more. There seemed to be an effort to be inclusive of women... What will you not find so much? Black people. Here and there, but for the most part missing.

And I think of the keeping up with the commodore commercials... They all had women and girls in them. The vic20 commercials with shatner had a boy and a girl.

There were pieces about software designers, like the woman who was part of the team that created archon. Women featured in the computer art contests and programming contests.

The problem lies not with advertising. It lies with schools and the fucked up social system of the status quo.
