+ - Ron Paul Survival Reports Released 2

Submitted by
Veinor writes: "The New Republic has released several scans of Ron Paul's old Survival Reports, as well as other miscellaneous documents, dating from 1978 to 1995. Many of the quotes, such as in the November 1990 article where Martin Luther King is called "a world-class adulterer" who "seduced underage girls and boys" and "replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration," and the January 1994 edition, where he claims gay men with AIDS "enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick," could potentially damage the Republican presidential hopeful's bid."

Journal: Where's the 2006 I was promised?

Journal by wheany

Where is the 2006 I was promised? I have never ridden a flying car, my workplace is not on the Moon, not that it matters much, since I have no rocket pack. I have to wear these stupid clothes made out of cloth instead of foil. Oh yeah, and I had to eat my food off a plate using a fork and a knife, like some idiot, when I should be popping pills for lunch.

The third millennium has so far been a huge rip off.

Journal: How do you make an Xbox 360 fanboy from a PS3 fanboy? 6

Journal by wheany

PS3 fanboy + Sony's embarassing E3 press conference + PS3's price + GTA4 on the Xbox 360 in October = Xbox 360 fanboy.

I'm so there.

Edit: Seriously Sony, grow a pair. I would have respected you so much more if you hadn't caved to some-guys-on-the-internet's mockery of your "batarang" controller and if you hadn't tacked on those stupid gyros on the controller.

God damn, I'm getting internet rage because of your stupidity.

Journal: Gameplay is a buzzword.

Journal by wheany

Gameplay is a buzzword. Any "true gamer" always values gameplay over graphics. Or rather: "True gamers" insist that modern and/or popular games games focus on graphics over gameplay. God forbid a popular game having really good graphics!

One thing I hate is people using "optional" plurals in programs.

Journal: So, what plans do you have for your vacation? 1

Journal by wheany

Yeah, I'm on vacation for 1 week. My first in who knows how long.

Anyway, you know what I'm going to do on my vacation? Absolutely nothing! I'm going to sleep late and stay up playing Civ 4 and Metroid Prime 2 as long as I fucking want! You can keep your skiing holidays in Ass-pen or trips to spas. I do not want any stress during my vacation, especially from travel arrangements.

So a big neener neener to any of you who are reading this at work (hey, beats actually working).


Journal: Stupid comments in code! 1

Journal by wheany

So you have a method, say "getMessage()". Do you really think that writing a comment that says "gets message." adds any information?

Especially in languages like PHP where the parameters and return values can be fucking anything you decided to shit out of your fingers?

Journal: Aww, crap. (GTA: Liberty City Stories)

Journal by wheany

First of all: The game looks promising. I've played maybe 2 or 3 hours, and so far the game looks very GTA3-ish. This is a good thing if you liked GTA 3 and are not bored by the whole GTA game concept by now.

Journal: Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

Journal by wheany

It fucking rocks.

Finally a game worth buying for Nintendo DS. Yes, it has some touch screen gimmicks, like you can select stuff from menus using a stylus (where the choices are maybe 8 pixels high), drawing magical seals to finish off bosses and destroying some blocks after you get the appropriate skill, but the main gameplay is old-school.

How many NASA managers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? "That's a known problem... don't worry about it."
