I discovered reddit about 6 months ago. At first I thought it was pretty neat. Now I have a sneaking suspicion that there is really only one other guy on the site. A 14 year old, pimple faced youth who hates anyone that isnt liberal, atheist, and really really loves cats and bacon. At this point the only subs I have are star trek and firefly, and I look at it every once in a while when I'm really really bored.

As a Christian, I'm glad you did. People that would use a religion to gain control over others or power for themselves is a terrible thing. The message of Jesus (and thus, Christianity) is all good, and one of love and compassion. What people have done with religion is really, really bad. The same thing needs to happen with Islam.

Clearly you are a liberal. Even claiming to be a conservative on the internet will immediately get you harrased, regardless of individual views. I used to think like you do, then became a conservative. Then I saw the REAL hate directed towards an entire group of people regardless of their individual beliefs.

Comment This sounds familiar. (Score 1) 314

Not too long ago I was thinking to myself, "You know, I haven't really pirated anything in a while. Most of what I want is on hulu or netflix." I also noted that many of the things I watched on Netflix started with the Starz logo. Perhaps very soon it will be time to go back to TPB. Why don't media companies get it? I don't *NEED* to buy their product, I can have it for free because there is no scarcity in a world of 1s and 0s.

Comment Hmm, beautiful, but no. (Score 1) 200

Its gorgeous. Simply beautiful. I know I won't buy it. I like games, but if I want to PC game, I can get a great experience for so much less money with a desktop. Also I don't have to worry about switching out hardware nearly as much. If I wanted to spend that much money on a good-looking laptop I would get another Macbook Pro... then it will have the added benefit of running OS X. Of course it wouldn't be a gaming laptop then, but who really needs a gaming laptop AND has almost 3 grand to spend on it? My guess is this is SUPER niche.

I use my iPad in all of those locations and I really don't see a problem with it. My iPad is where I read my books now, and people take those to the bathroom or restaurants as well.

Also this isn't particularly new either. I have been taking devices to the bathroom since my first Palm device. I have a very specific routine (not really by thinking about, it just developed naturally) I have developed to ensure the device never gets dropped in!
