Water is wet.

It is also comprised of two Hydrogen atoms and one Oxygen atom.

It also has a Ph of 7 and is considered a Universal Solvent.

It Also has a MSDS for it. That's right. There is a Safety Data sheet on WATER because the government felt a need to inform people that you can't breath in it.

In other news: 3D TV, a commercial gimmick for people to buy expensive shit, has finally kicked the bucket. Reports are also coming in that the Virtual Reality fad is also following suit. VR, as you know, has been a fad that both the Game Console and Electronics companies have been trying to shove up people's ass like 3D TV, but has failed every time.

Captain Obvious reporting.

Laziness and impatience drives obscene profit margins within the coffee industry. It's still fairly easy to still spend pennies on a cup of coffee, if you're willing to get off your ass, grind a few beans, and brew a cup. Most people prefer whistling for a dog named Starbucks or shove a pod into a machine to whip up a coffee-like substance fast enough to not be a burden on a FOMO lifestyle.

I make Folgers Coffee from a drip coffee machine. My morning brain fuel.

I don't need those fancy cup pod coffee makers or that fancy Starfucks that costs more than a can of Folgers. Young'uns are so noob to the joys of coffee. Back in my day I had to go to an actual store and get a can of coffee and then actually make the coffee.

Now get the Hell off my lawn!

Comment Re:FBI Jurisdiction (Score 1) 104

Perhaps I'm mistaken, but isn't the FBI restricted to US jurisdiction? I grew up with the understanding that they were basically a domestic police force on the national level.

I'm assuming I am mistaken, please feel free to give me further understanding on how the FBI can be in India.

They were working with the government of that country or in cooperation of that country.

What do you accomplish by trying to inject Trump into this topic?

Really, what do you accomplish?

I got better things to do than read the comment from the troll you replied to...

...but they succeeded in what they wanted to accomplish because you broke Rules of the Internet #14.

Comment Re:loses badly??? (Score 1) 90

That doesn't sound like loses badly. That just sounds like a relatively normal loss. A normal loss should probably include attorney fees. I'm glad the student won and didn't end up having to pay money but the student was probably still out a ton of time and hassle and it didn't sound like there was any compensation to the student or punishment to the firm besides having to pay the other side's court cost. Again, glad the student fought it but the only thing the student got to show for it was to be able to keep their review online. The student should be rewarded somehow for fighting a frivolous lawsuit instead of taking the easy route and just deleting the review.

Clearly you are forgetting:

- This will further darken the Law Firm's reputation. Yelp review or not.
- The Negative PR from this clusterfuck isn't going to draw in new clients.
- This isn't going to help them in the future. Especially if a high profile case comes up.

So they have lost money. That isn't a big deal. It is the attention and court of public opinion that will last forever and do more harm than they want.

"There's a small but hopefully growing subculture of people who are buying the active ingredients of drugs," he says. "It's encouraging to see people take control of their own health."

There used to be a time when you could walk to your corner pharmacy and get a bottle of laudanum, or some cocaine. This did not work out well. There are far too many stupid or murderous people to allow this. I'm sure these guys have the best of intentions but when the idiots start rolling up with lawsuits because they didn't assemble their pen correctly or overdosed or used old medicine or got an air bubble into their veins or the cheap needle they used broke off into their leg or any of the infinite number of horrible things that will happen, they will be wiped out.

There are very good reasons we don't allow Doctor Mom to build her own x-ray machine to save a buck. Just because this medical device is simple doesn't mean it isn't a medical grade device that should be constructed in your Maker lab.

Let's get this straightened out:


On one hand:

You get a few imbeciles who cannot be trusted with a pencil because they will jam it in their eye first chance and sue everyone and their cat for their gross stupidity. These Darwin Award Nominees might Darwin themselves out compared to the MILLIONS who know how to operate a syringe (which is all an EpiPen really is).

On the other hand:

People discard this cheaper DIY solution, including just buying the drug and insulin syringes, and stick with getting butt fucked without lube by Mylan. This causes millions of people whom can't afford the drug (because they don't have insurance, the insurance company won't pay for it because they are assclowns, etc.) to drop dead like flies because of complications due to Anaphylactic shock or Asthma.

But, hey: The Darwin Award Nominees live to kill themselves in another dumbass way!


So, which is it? A few Darwin Award Nominees who will off themselves anyways either by EpiPencil or a REAL pencil, or millions who Mylan would gladly ass fuck for more money?

I'll GLADLY hand out the Darwin Award Statues to those morons if it means people can live without taking it in the ass by Mylan or dying because of their greed.

Comment Re:so sad :( (Score 1) 420

I was a student there. That was the best 7 years of my life -- good friends, better drugs, best sex. I'd drink a red bull and viagra on Friday afternoon and fuck 10-15 dudes before Monday came around. I'm working as a fullstack junior web engineer at a SF startup so there's just as much, if not more, sex, but I miss the drugs and friends. Skipping work because I'm hungover isn't quite the same as skipping class because I'm hungover.

I plan on doing my own startup in a couple months, once I get a cofounder, raise a series A and find an idea. I wouldn't be here without ITT so this is a little sad for me :(

Wow. It took you seven years to graduate from ITT Tech?

I enrolled my cats into ITT Tech and it only took them a year and a half to get a degree in network security and electrical engineering with honors.

If it took you that long: You must have been stoned out of your gourd, mate.

Nigeria's anti-fraud agency was also involved in the arrest.

So, basically: Nigeria's Anti-Fraud Agency got off their ass and made it look like they did something meaningful.

That's a relief.

Considering that whole blasted State is rife with corruption, fraud, and violence: The removal of one major kingpin out of countless many will certainly make them look like they are hard at work. Especially since Interpol and who know how many other international LE agencies did all the hard work for them.
