Comment Re:No, why would I? (Score 1) 149

I can kind of understand that view, but I willingly test the software I use myself because I am the only one I trust to verify that the product meets my standards.

You have no idea who is doing QA at some of these companies. The ones I personally know drink even more than I do and I wouldn't trust them to tie their own shoelaces without fucking it up at least twice.

What do they want? More hand jobs and blow?

My acute senses are alerting me that this may be, in fact, a rhetorical question.

I've noticed since the economic depression circa 2008 people think it is much more acceptable now to just ask you to give them money. For the small town I live in, there are an extrodinary number of panhandlers*. Their proposal is this: you give me money and I'll do nothing in return. That's a pretty good deal for one of us, but it's not me.

* That's the euphamism they prefer to be called now too. It's not like they are panning for gold in the mountains of California, they are begging. Rather than face the fact, they have to lie to themselves and insist everybody calls them panhandlers. And society appears to just play along with all this.

Sure, it's very easy to lose all your visitors, too, if that's your goal. It's not like there aren't millions of other porn sites out there for free.

Frankly, I think if one has the capacity to lie when they click the "Yes, I'm over 18" button, then it is perfectly acceptable they have a healthy wank in the privacy of their own homes. I'd much rather they do that than knock up the girl next door.

I really don't care what other people do in their bedrooms. If I'm not involved, I'm not interested. I don't understand the mindset of people who care enough to make it a public issue. They must have had a bad experience during toilet-training, I guess.

I don't understand why you Republicans constantly lie about that. We all know damn well you're spouting Republican talking points with that lie. Nixon coined that phrase in 1971.

Guess what what, shithead. Nixon was a Republican. I see a one-to-one correspondence between people who don't have shit for brains, and that identify as Republicans. Can't be a coincidence at this point. By the way, enjoy losing yet another presidential election because you don't have the mental facultites to recognize and deal with reality. That's why you've got the candidate you do. The people who actually have the capacity to deal with adult issues in an adult manner are laughing at you. It would be funny if not so absurdly tragic.

According to his diary, Adam Landza passed up shooting up the Denver airport and instead decided on a movie theatre which explicitly prohibited guns because he understood it was unlikely he'd encounter armed resistance and could kill more people.

I doubt it, seeing as Adam Lanza shot up a bunch of elementary school kids in Newtown Connecticut. James Holmes did the theater shooting in Aurora Colorado. I think it's important, when talking about your mass murderers, to get the attributions correct.

A mirror on vertical plane produces a laterally inverted image. OK. Why it does not produce upside down image? Is it in our brain? A mirror on horizontal plane, like a lake surface, produces an upside down and laterally inverted image. Why?

Richard Feynman explains it best. Watch it here.

The good guy vigilante is a myth, even in states with open carry or liberal concealed carry .

There was an armed, uniformed police officer at the Orlando club at the time of the shooting. It didn't help. There's not much even a highly trained "good guy with a gun" can do do against a bad guy with an assault rifle.

Submission + - Worst Mass Shooting in U.S. History (cnn.com) 17

An anonymous reader writes: From CNN:

"Fifty people were killed inside Pulse, a gay nightclub, Orlando Police Chief John Mina and other officials said Sunday morning, just hours after a shooter opened fire in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. At least 53 more people were injured, Mina said. Police have shot and killed the gunman, he told reporters.

The shooter is not from the Orlando area, Mina said. He has been identified as Omar Saddiqui Mateen, 29, of Fort Pierce, about 120 miles southeast of Orlando, two law enforcement officials tell CNN.
Orlando authorities said they consider the violence an act of domestic terror. The FBI is involved. While investigators are exploring all angles, they "have suggestions the individual has leanings towards (Islamic terrorism), but right now we can't say definitely," said Ron Hopper, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI's Orlando bureau."
