Comment Amusing reactions (Score 1) 220

The same people that will get up in arms about their "freedom of speech" to show up and call someone faggot/nigger/etc will also get up in arms about other people's freedom to ignore them.

If you show up at someone's house and shit on their rug, they're not infringing on your freedom if they start locking the door.

Comment Wouldn't hand it over. (Score 1) 209

I have nothing on my computer that I'd need to hide. Well, I'm sure that there's probably some way that they would find to prosecute me or anyone else given enough personal data and the breadth of the criminal code.
And that's why warrants with scope should always be used for such searches.

But, with or without a warrant, I'm not handing over my password.

Comment Cost of a console or a little more (Score 2) 729

You can build a "budget" gaming rig these days for $550, which will play most games except the very latest at high/ultra quality settings.
And shops like NCIX will send one already built and tested to your door and save you the headache of picking it out yourself.
So for the price of a console you get a rig with the potential to upgrade a couple of parts before you get around to replacing it.

I know, I know. You're just trolling with ignorance. But here's how it works.

Atheism is just a lack of beliefs in gods. It's not a religion. Now you have have an atheist who is dogmatic about other things, usually ending in -ism. Capitalism, communism... But if you question what their theology is (theism being key) you don't get capitalism as an answer.

It's exactly the same as someone being Christian and being a right wing capitalist. Even if the two may statistically go hand in hand, when you ask that person what their theology is, you get Christian as an answer.

Words and concepts matter. You don't get to throw them out for 10 seconds so you can say something, but then expect YOUR OWN words to carry weight.
