In this day and age, sexism is any action done by the opposite sex that bothers, annoys, insults, or troubles you in any conceivable way.

No. It's not. That you don't know the fucking difference is ample evidence of the problem here. Grow up. Educate yourself. Stop blaming others who highlight your willful ignorance.

"Truth" is when someone tells you a thing is so, and then invites you to verify it for yourself, using sources of your own choosing. Refusing to believe the truth is when you are told something is so, and you reject it out of hand or use sources you know will tell you what you want to hear. In other words, truth cannot be handed down. If you really want it, you will have to go out and find it for yourself.

Have you ever been able to trust it? I doubt it, so nothing has really changed in this regard and the timing of this question seems partisan.

Oh, fucking please... Have you ever heard such juvenile falsehoods uttered by official Whitehouse representatives before? Unless you're Kellyanne Conway, you have to admit that this is different. The good news is, if they don't get this silly bullshit under control, they're going to drag the entire GOP down with them.

protip: thousands < millions yeah, I know that wrecks your quote. This is slashdot, where technically correct is the best kind of correct.

What part of "as if" escaped your attention, young padawan? You see, the phrase "as if" implies an hypothetical scenario and should not be confused with a declarative statement like, "Millions of voices dialed out...". I know that wrecks your attempt at pendantry. Maybe you should stick with the blaster.

Comment So... Moller sold his designs to Airbus? (Score 1) 140

I didn't read that, but it's the same, held-aloft-by-four-fans design that Moller has been hawking for decades, which means that just like Moller's "Skycar", it's going to fly just slightly better than a grand piano if even one of those engines goes out. Not over my neighborhood, thank you.

I'd say it depends more on how you define "get it done". I can perform any of my regular chores on my laptop, but not as quickly nor as easily. My desktop has more grunt per dollar spent on the basic platform, and has three displays and a much friendlier mouse and keyboard. For my workload, looking from one monitor to another is a lot more effective than alt-tab, repeat.

Comment Calm down, everyone. (Score 1) 504

We've managed to get our puppet government installed, so there will be no crisis for the fossil fuel industry any time soon. You'll have plenty of time to move your personal interests out of those companies while staying below the radar of what regulators may still be on the job later this year.

Comment Re:And how many (Score 1) 83


That is the point. In the "Five Eyes" (US, UK, Canada, Australia, NZ), data is being collected, and it is possible that maybe someday that data could be used to roundup and arrest dissidents or people that question authority.

Exactly, and it's already started. I certainly feel just a little bit less safe since the election last month, given the incoming administration's plainly stated intent to violate my Constitutional rights. Then again, they're probably going to have a bitch of a time pinning down the political leanings of a liberal who likes guns and NASCAR, so I may be safe for a while.
