Comment Re:About that "plastic bag filled with black powde (Score 1) 150

So you've turned the pollution into a fine powder. Now what are you going to do with it?

"Roosegaarde claims that the firm did get diamonds from pollution dust made, but as the process required so much energy it didn’t chime with the firm’s environmentally friendly ethos. Instead, they sell jewelry featuring little blocks of compressed pollutants."

Not a good answer.

Ship it to the US as a key ingredient in blackface? Oh wait...

Said 'Hate Meter' can even have a tattooing unit built into the inner surface where it meets the skin of the forehead.

Then it can be simply placed on the candidate and it will automatically brand 'hater' on their forehead after the measurement cycle is complete, and can be moved to the head of the next candidate.

Because, that's what people who use the phrase 'hater' to label other people want.

This is going to escalate fast, because of all the people who now hate the haters...

Hitler-like mustache, wearing a yarmulke or a Klan hood, have proliferated in recent weeks in hateful messages aimed at Jewish

That doesn't make any sense. Is the frog here the person writing the message, as in "what the frog says", or is the purpose of the message to suggest that Jewish love the Klan and Hitler, while being frog-like?

Dude, frogs are a race!

I think when your hair trigger sensitive response to things is to go straight to blaming things on SJW's and that social justice has become an entirely bad thing to you, you've lost sight of what matters. I have a strong dislike for the nonsense that SJW's do as well but you have to remember, we do need people who are aware of social destructiveness and people need to frequently push back on hate.

You better make sure its actual hate and not irony or dislike. Maybe you can invent some kind of 'hate meter' that we can strap to someones head and measure how much they hate something?

Makes sense, so long as you're also willing to charge every employee of every telecom company as being accessories to terrorism or child porn distribution.

Well yes, every potential sex offender should go on the registry. Obviously thats the end game here.

Can you provide an example of someone who is NOT a potential sex offender? I'm guessing they must be, thirsty, shut ins or both to start...
At least 13 states require sex offender registration for public urination, according to Human Rights Watch's comprehensive review of sex offender laws in 2007.

The sarcasm fairy really zoomed over your head, didn't she...

In a hundred years, I'm guessing it will be legal to make a computer program that lets you virtually have sex with, or murder, six year old little girls, or 500 year old dragons. Because like, that's not actually the same thing as hurting another human being. Oh, except that it hurts society that I didn't choose to join the army instead so I could go create some collateral murder...

At 500 years old a dragon is barely legal!

Tor exit node = child sex offender.

and they can slap down some accessory to crime as well on you as you are helping people do stuff on the tor network by running an exit node.

Seriously, I am surprised they didn't get on the sex offenders registry. There seems to be a push to get as many people on it as possible, so people peeing behind a dumpster at 2am on the way back from a bar get put on the registry etc.

Improvised firearms are simple to make with little skill, see the Royal Nonesuch YouTube channel for proof.

The blueprints for the Colt AR-15 have been available on the internet for years, it's just that taking those and producing an actual firearm has been difficult.

I'm not so sure it's about the proliferation of firearms as much as it is an effort to control our society by denying them access to information. It has been proven time and again that ne'er do wells *DO* obtain firearms illegally.

During world war 2 plans for sten guns (submachine guns) were dropped to resistance groups behind enemy lines. They were incredibly easy to build, even without 3d printers and CNC rigs.
