Comment sad sack (Score 2) 93

things are pretty sad with the world if we have serious concerns that recommendations to take 10,000 steps in one day might hurt someone.

    The whole drink 8 glasses of water a day thing is probably more of a risky recommendation for certain pre-existing conditions, but c'mon. Any health / exercise recommendation should be taken with caution if your health is on the far end of the bell curve.
This is a ridiculous criticism.

Define spies. Google has turned data over to the feds that has led to US citizens being arrested. Google cooperates with China's great firewall policies and therefore contributes to human rights violations. Google is as evil as they come when it comes to data security and protection, do not consider your data secure with them.

Comment Re:Real banner week for the TSA... (Score 1, Troll) 166

The TSA is backed by PETA avidly and they are doing an excellent job per PETA standards / expectations. Almost every TSA employee you see would be unemployed and abusing small animals at home if the TSA did not give them somewhere to go for 8h a day. So next time you see one of them yank a tracheotomy tube out of a child in a wheelchair or cavity search an old woman, just remind yourself of all the safe pets out there.

Yeah, just like their heads span when people left them when they decided to both raise fees and drop all decent programming by going streaming only.

All of these moves are coldly calculated. They will win no matter what, your departure will not make anything spin I assure you. They are an essentially zero competition industry. They will become progressively more and more evil until someone else comes to market, but they have a massive head start, and I haven't even heard rumors about competition other than Amazon, but they're nowhere close.
