Comment No Fools' Cry (Score 1, Interesting) 192

Internet fanboys buy into hype, then cry when their childlike foolishness leads them to disappointment and regret. Childlike entitlement kicks in and tantrums follow. It happens over and over, year after year.

It's a game about exploration and discovery. Were they supposed to give you a comprehensive list of everything that could possibly happen in the game before you bought it? A grownup would either wait and buy the game after reading enough reviews to make a wise decision, or take a gamble and pre-order and accept that gambles sometimes pay off and sometimes don't.

Don't you people get tired of acting like children? Why not just grow up and stop making things worse for yourself and the people around you?

And don't the rest of you get tired of these people who are old enough to be grownups demanding to be indulged in their foolishness like 10-year-olds? Why not tell them to grow up instead of indulging their ongoing foolishness?

Can't dispute anything he's said, has to break down into insults. How a-typical. I remember playing with and against him in Quake, he was a jerk. But even at that, the shit that the US did was so far outside of what should have been allowed that anyone with a functioning brain should be on his side. Funny though, how he wants his extradition hearing televised and the US government is going nonononononono we can't let that happen. Sure does say a hell of a lot about the state of affairs doesn't it?

Ah I see, you're just going to make up stuff because while I'll accept actual facts ...

Funny, there's actual facts in all those little links I posted. Strange that you don't find them to be the "right kind of facts" for you though. Which of course says a hell of a lot about what you'd believe, that being the only facts that fits your ideology and agenda are the type you'd accept.

It'd kinda like that stuff with Gamergate. You'll wholly believe the wikipedia article is accurate, but when proven how each section you quoted is factually inaccurate you ignore it, try to move the goal posts, or simply run away. When shown that the people who claimed "gamergate is harassing them" are shown to be the actual harassers, you ignore it or run away. Perhaps you should just save everyone the trouble and move to a country that still has an operating politburo.

Comment Re:Ban drug ad's like most developed nations do! (Score -1) 335

'Most nations' do all sorts of crazy shit (and so does the USA) however drug ads to me are not different from shoe or car or food ads, drugs are a business, the only problem is government involvement, be it fda or medicare or medicaid or any form of government taxation and spending on anything related to healthcare or any form of business regulation beyond fraud. Ads are fine.

Tell you what. You dispute those facts, which have pretty little pictures, and links(either directly or archived links) which prove what's in the articles to start with.

But anyone who's looked at the articles can already tell what'll happen. They disprove your point, you can't offer any proof contrary to what's being said. And you refuse to look at a countering point of view because it would hurt the narrative you've been holding onto for the last two years. That social justice and many of them that claim they're "part of that movement" are just plain terrible people who are only in it to make themselves feel good. And in the very worst cases, they do everything that they accuse those they're attacking of doing.

Comment Refusal will be grounds for Interrogation (Score 2) 191

Do they really think that if some ISIS guy flies in, he's going to fill out the customs form honestly and say "Yep, my Twitter handle is @jihad4lyfe!"

No, they probably think that he will refuse to give them a handle and then they will use this as grounds to detain him for interrogation. The problem is that some of us don't use Facebook, Twitter etc. and so I don't have an account to give them - other than a dummy Facebook account which is entirely devoid of any personal information and that I only created because our local airport used to insist on Facebook to access the free WiFi. However I expect this will look like I created a dummy account to hide my real account from them.

I'm beginning to wonder whether the US government's long term plan is to make travelling to the US such a horrible experience for us foreigners that identifying the terrorists will be easy because they will be the only ones insane enough to try.
