Comment Re:Terrorists? Probably not. Nor unions! (Score 1) 461

Lets not all go blaming terrorist organizations on this one. ... My money is on unionized workers facing layoffs or payroll cuts.

What about a company that specializes in hardening network infrastructure? They have concerns about payroll cuts AND increasing share holder value!

I won't suggest government agencies interested in expanding the "theater of security" because I don't have my tinfoil hat on.

Comment Creationism is blasphemy (Score 1) 1306

How can supposedly religious people claim to understand how God created them?

So God wouldn't make things complex? Doesn't that imply that creationists believe that God cannot be more intelligent than themselves?

Football, chess, and you left out boxing, hockey, and soccer, BAH!

These are mere analogues for killing. I was on the fencing team during my undergraduate years, and fencing is uniquely the ONLY sport in which one pretends to actually KILL OPPONENTS.

If people try to illegalize fencing, must I skewer them? Would I?

Football: a violent contact sport, frequently resulting in personal injury. Chess: A game in which you are encouraged to send blindly loyal soldiers of varying specialties to their untimely deaths all in the name of protecting a single political figure. Horse races: Involves brutally pitting horses against one another, some choose to include whipping. The horses get nothing but a fresh feed bag, while the trainers get millions in prize money, and book keepers rake in billions from the gambling. I'm sure there's something bad about golf, but all I could think of is "known to cause heart attacks in managers who should be behind their desks", but that's no loss for the world.

Anything can be portrayed in a bad light by phrasing it correctly.
