Comment Re:Tor exit node = child sex offender (Score 1) 237

Makes sense, so long as you're also willing to charge every employee of every telecom company as being accessories to terrorism or child porn distribution.

Well yes, every potential sex offender should go on the registry. Obviously thats the end game here.

Can you provide an example of someone who is NOT a potential sex offender? I'm guessing they must be, thirsty, shut ins or both to start...
At least 13 states require sex offender registration for public urination, according to Human Rights Watch's comprehensive review of sex offender laws in 2007.

The sarcasm fairy really zoomed over your head, didn't she...

In a hundred years, I'm guessing it will be legal to make a computer program that lets you virtually have sex with, or murder, six year old little girls, or 500 year old dragons. Because like, that's not actually the same thing as hurting another human being. Oh, except that it hurts society that I didn't choose to join the army instead so I could go create some collateral murder...

At 500 years old a dragon is barely legal!

Tor exit node = child sex offender.

and they can slap down some accessory to crime as well on you as you are helping people do stuff on the tor network by running an exit node.

Seriously, I am surprised they didn't get on the sex offenders registry. There seems to be a push to get as many people on it as possible, so people peeing behind a dumpster at 2am on the way back from a bar get put on the registry etc.

Improvised firearms are simple to make with little skill, see the Royal Nonesuch YouTube channel for proof.

The blueprints for the Colt AR-15 have been available on the internet for years, it's just that taking those and producing an actual firearm has been difficult.

I'm not so sure it's about the proliferation of firearms as much as it is an effort to control our society by denying them access to information. It has been proven time and again that ne'er do wells *DO* obtain firearms illegally.

During world war 2 plans for sten guns (submachine guns) were dropped to resistance groups behind enemy lines. They were incredibly easy to build, even without 3d printers and CNC rigs.

Don't be silly. They'll introduce a military equivalent of the H1-B.

Hey, it worked for Rome. A bit.

I've often wondered how single countries, such as Japan or Germany or UK managed to occupy such huge swathes of land and colonies given their population. Surely they can't have actually had their own national forces doing the occupation. So yeah they must have done some outsourcing!

I see you don't recognize that they're talking about kindergartners.

None of this is good for 5 yr olds.

But you probably have no idea about that.

I feel a little bit better about the future of our great country today

Only because you're fucking ignorant of childhood development.

I had to ask Gibraltar "immigration" for a passport stamp on the way in, and on the way out back to spain... well it was after 6pm so they'd gone home for the day, I just walked out through their vacant office back in to the schengen area. UK might not be schengen area, but you'd be hard pressed to find it fully enforced.

Maybe in Gibraltar.

I travelled from Eastern Europe to the UK by bus. We passed through about 6 countries but you wouldn't know it until it came to the ferry across from France it was like going to another country!

I used to travel to the UK quite regularly, in the 80's and some in the 90's. I would not recognize it now, in many ways. they have gone so far into the nanny state and citizen spying, I would never voluntarily move to england and I don't even really want to fly there anymore.

I was in the UK (where I grew up) for a vacation with my wife, who had never been there before and is from a former HARDCORE communist country. She was amazed at all the cameras and surveillance everywhere, even in the public toilets (she was shocked at how filthy they were, even near Buckingham Palace and having to pay to use these filthy toilets).

The most observed population outside of North Korea.

Before Brexit I had a hard time imagining living back in the UK. After Brexit and the vacation I know for sure I couldn't stand living there, and I don't know how anyone can, except the paranoid and stupid.

if a country needs to be in the EU to have access to another country's markets, then that is NOT an "open market"

What David Davis (the minister for Brexit), and many other English people just realised in the last month or so is that you can't make trade deals with individual EU member states because the EU is a single market. You make a trade deal with the EU not with France, Germany, Holland etc.

The fact that Davis didn't already know this, and he of all people should have, just shows how dumb and naive the English are regarding the EU.

it is very easy, freedom of movement is fundamental for the tech companies which relies on recruiting labour from the whole continent. This is unlikely to be possible without having to go through a lot of red tape.

Last time we recruited from outside the EU, the red tape took close to 6 months to go through.

The Schengen area and the EU are different things. Does Brexit mean the UK is backing out of the Schengen treaty?

UK is not in shengen
