Comment Re:TFA is totally wrong about why Vista failed (Score 1) 864

Until they stop supporting your current OS with security upgrades and activation. is that a compelling reason to start using Windows 7 or Vista? You can just move to Linux or Mac OS, which, with enough tinkering, will do nearly everything XP does. Your logic, sir, is faulty. To throw my hat in this ring, I've been using Vista for a long time and I have had very few problems with it. If you know what you're doing (if many of the critics are any indication, this is a huge problem), have a good antivirus program (which you should regardless of which OS you're running), and tailor it to meet your system's capabilities (my laptop can run everything just fine but I decided to turn off Aero and some other features because I value speed), then Vista is great. If, on the other hand, you dig in your heels and howl like a little bitch about Vista not being XP, you are not going to get very much done.

First of all, I'd recommend you check your spelling of the word you spelled as "mammel" before you go around saying inflammatory things like (I quote, ad pedem litterae) "Lets also pretend you know what the hell the word "Mammel" means." (Hint: the letter 'a' appears twice in that word.)

Secondly, the issue here isn't whether or not breastfeeding is allowed in public. It's whether or not Facebook has the right to censor photos of breastfeeding mothers. Aside from the fact that none of the young mothers *I* know would be caught dead posting breastfeeding pictures on Facebook (Seriously? What the HELL are you thinking? It's the Internet. Would you post a basic shot of just your tits on it? No? Then what convinces you that it's better to have a baby in the picture that just so happens to be hanging out near said tits?), the fact remains that Facebook has the right to remove content at its sole discretion. Like it or lump it, that fact remains.

As for your final point, I don't think there's a Christian church in the world who would disagree with you that Jesus did, in fact, suckle happily away at the Virgin Teat. Were you just flaming, or are you actually stupid enough to think that people believe otherwise?

P.S. As I mentioned before, please check your spelling of "mammal." Also for your consideration: "argument," "asinine," "let's," and "self-righteous."

It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Rick Astley Discovers the Rickroll 1

Pickens writes: "Over the last year or so, Rick Astley has watched with puzzled amazement as "Never Gonna Give You Up" has been mocked, celebrated, remixed and reprised, its original music video viewed millions of times on YouTube, all by a generation that could barely swallow its Gerber carrots when the song first topped the pop charts. "If this had happened around some kind of rock song, with a lyric that really meant something — a Bruce Springsteen, "God bless America" ... or an anti-something kind of song, I could kind of understand that," Astley said. "But for something as, and I don't mean to belittle it, because I still think it's a great pop song, but it's a pop song; do you know what I mean? It doesn't have any kind of weight behind it, as such. But maybe that's the irony of it." Astley, who will be touring the U.K. in May with a group of other '80's acts, including Bananarama, and Nick Heyward, Heaven 17, Paul Young and ABC, sums up his thoughts on his unexpected virtual fame with characteristic good humor: "Listen, I just think it's bizarre and funny. My main consideration is that my daughter doesn't get embarrassed about it.""
