Very clever finding notorious hack Bill Saffire commenting on his own column, and painting it as some sort of third party endorsement of his original column that history has shown is a pack of fail. Lest we forget The Starr Report. Lest we forget the final Travelgate report. Lest we forget the transparently political climate.
You need to troll much harder kid. I remember this shit.
This is where Emoji came from. Imagine a late 1990's cell phone with the 12 standard buttons, and having to send text messages to someone in Japanese. How do you use those 12 buttons to select from thousands of Kanji symbols?
Don't try and be an amateur linguistic historian, when people are alive today that sent SMS messages in the mid 1990s. Also, the history of emoji is in Wikipedia.
So what's the real story? Someone at NTT Docomo wanted prettier emoticons. Then once they had that, they decided to shove all their icons into this new dingbat font for ease of use. Softbank wanted feature parity, so they did the same. Then later the two fonts were shoved together, and so we have the unholy union that gives us ðY"' and ðY--, âoe'ï and ðY-, and my favorite ðY" and ðY"Z.
Pfft, just the corners off. That way you'll be prepared when the robots come to kill you.
True, but it's unlikely that even after The Great Cataclysm(tm), that you'll ever have to build everything from scratch again. There's instruction manuals.
Foxfire has been doing this the mid 1960s. How to raise and slaughter animals. How to grow crops. How to bootstrap iron working, including gunsmithing. Everything you need, and with all the mammy-pamby crap from "urban homesteaders" and preppers. Practical knowledge from people that were doing it daily.
And then you drop it...

Couldn't the government just take down the DNS entries of those sites, rather than install malware?
Not if you want to track the people visiting the site.
It makes more sense that this was done by script kiddies with an agenda.

I've never been a great FPS player, but I do enjoy the genre, or at least I used to. (Apparently, kids these days think camping at spawn points is cool. In my day, that would get you kicked.) I really liked BF2. I liked hopping in anti aircraft batteries and gibbetting whole groups of people until inevitably someone stuck a bomb on the back on detonated it. Loads of fun. When I got BF3, I thought, "What the fuck is this?" Every gun, every add-on had to be unlocked. It was stupid, and made an already frustrating game, unplayable. I was a goddamn sniper, without a goddamn scope! WTF?
Even the single player campaign was boring and by the numbers. It was almost as bad as a rail-shooter, that I couldn't bother to finish it. And that's when I realized that I'd probably never play another FPS. (Well that, and the stupidity of the COD Black Ops demo where I had to walk to a U2, climb up a latter, turn on the plane, fly up, then watch a cut scene. Pointless.)
you trusted your BC to some yahoo that ran a fricking Magic:The Gathering trading club...really?
What? You don't do all your banking at the comic book shop?
