Comment Giant fucking waste of time is what it is. (Score 0) 63

Sure, maybe for banking sites and anything where money changes hands.

I can understand that.

But why the FUCK do I have to do it on someone's stupid WordPress or Joomla site?

Hell, even company sites. If all they're serving is flat HTML content who gives a shit about HTTPS?

But NO! Their website is now SUSPECT! Are you REALLY sure you want to ENDANGER yourself?

It's the whole fucking popup verification debacle all over again!

"Are you sure?" Yes.

"Nuke your hard drive and fuck you in the ass?" Yes...wait WHAT?

I'm still trying to figure out how I didn't know about it until just recently.

Oh, I'll tell you why. Because season one only recently came to Netflix. It's the same as with Preacher, and Hap & Leonard and other cool shows. The target demographic (idiots like me) don't watch cable TV, but when it comes to Netflix, we're all over it.

Quite frankly, a monkey could write the garbage we get fed these days. "Scripted reality", yeah, right, what kind of drugs do you have to be on to consider this to be in any way even remotely close to "reality"? In between we got court TV and other garbage that needs zero writer or talent by the actors, sorry, "genuine people presenting real cases".

Even the most lame reality TV show is scripted. In fact, that's one of the things the Screenwriters Guild is fighting about. Currently, if you write a script for a reality show, you are treated differently than if you write for a drama or comedy.

You didn't think Honey Boo Boo was spontaneous, did you?

Comment Unstoppable? (Score 2) 467

Wind accounted for 5.6% of power generation in 2016.
Solar accounted for 0.9%.

I'm sure, on a more local level (like Texas), Wind accounts for a more significant portion per-capita. As does solar in areas with lots of sunshine (like Nevada and Hawaii).

But considering that Nuclear, which is essentially stagnant or post-peak due to the way the market's been poisoned against it, is producing over three times the power that Wind and Solar do on an AGGREGATE basis.

And that Coal and Hydro (which is post-peak) EACH produce about five times what Wind and Solar (again aggregate) do.

I'd say calling Wind and Solar "unstoppable" at this point is putting the cart WELL before the in "What's that out there on the horizon?"
