Comment Re:Making 26 YOs work 80 hour weeks is easier too. (Score 1) 232

Don't forget overpriced. And there just aren't any discounts anywhere on those items (vacuums or fans). The vacuums are just made of plastic, so they are not built to last (just like their engineers). Their "bladeless" fans are a curiosity, but upon close inspection, there is a fan in the base of it that has, well, blades! I would have been more impressed if it was more like the ionic breeze air filter that uses electricity only to move the air.

Maybe he will succeed at making a breakthrough in battery technology, but if it's like his other products, it will be too expensive. What good is a cell phone battery that lasts all week when it costs $400?

Comment Leaves out the important story (Score 0, Funny) 61

This is nice and all, but it leaves out the important story - what kind of shirt was the spokeman wearing when he made the announcement? We all know, from empirical experience, that this issue is far more important than any mind-shattering science that could have been done that day.

If you can force a rocket scientist, celebrating the accomplishment of a lifetime, to cry and grovel and beg forgiveness on international TV for wearing a shirt, you are not unempowered.

In the future, please do not respond to Score:0 anonymous posts. Slashdot has been infected by severe trolls from 4chan and they post regularly. They feed off responses, so don't give them any. The best revenge to a stupidly inflammatory response is silence. That's what trolls hate most of all.

Where's this bizarre concept come from? "The Soviets will destroy us all with their superior number of days in orbit!" is just straight out of left field. Who was even talking about that? You need to get with the new picture...Russia is ruled by a maniacal dictator who hacked the DNC and who is friends with Trump. They don't share in any humanity as long as they are throwing gays in jail. Russia today is a preview of Trump's potential fascist empire.

What's with your bizarre Eurocentrism? You started off all right, with the "human history" part, but then you went full retard and listed only the tiny sliver of history that whites were involved in. Where are the Guptas, the Zulu, the Aztecs? It was cringeworthy reading your parochial, closed-minded worldview. There's a whole world outside the tiny part inhabited by whites, learn about it sometime.

Comment Re:My Instagram feed is nonexistent (Score 1) 84

It makes you suspicious. People these days, especially young ones, want to see all your social media profiles before they'll have anything to do with you. It's a low-trust environment, they're naturally suspicious of outsiders. Either you match their beliefs and customs by having active Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin, Pinterest, etc. accounts, or you're a weird un-person. It's bad enough when they see posts disagreeing with one of their leftist political views, but when you don't have an account at all then you obviously have a dark secret to hide. You call this exaggeration but I've seen it.

Horrifyingly dreary for YOU, maybe. But people of average and low intelligence have no problem with repetitive tasks. It is only people of high intelligence who require a constant stream of novelty and who pout when they can't get it. I love how you can just decide what's good for everyone without even THINKING about people who differ from yourself, and your big brain tells you it's all right because you're smart.

But it's a *BIG* screen. And I can view it while sitting on a nice comfy couch. It's also connected to a fantastic audio system with really good speakers. Why in the world would I *PAY MONEY* to:

- play games on a smaller screen
- connected to tinny little speakers
- while sitting on an uncomfortable seat while riding the bus?
