Comment Too expensive and not clean (Score 4, Insightful) 222

The last few times that I went to the cinema, I was very disappointment with the experience.

The last thing I saw was in 3D, so I had to pay an additional 5 bucks. So, 40 bucks for two people. Then 5 bucks for the "small" 200 ounce soda and another 5 bucks for a "small" dumpster full of popcorn.
Then you sit down in the grungy seat and watch the movie. Then notice that the audio is not really calibrated all that well.
Then the movie is over and you try to pry your shoes from the soda glue all over the floor. Maybe you even use the bathroom with the pervasive urine smell and racist comments carved into the doors.

Yeah... Hard to imagine that attendance is down.

Comment Sure, we all knew... (Score 1) 308

But I do not think that's the reason no one really cares. I think most people don't trust wikileaks.
Julian is clearly a complete and total fuck head with a political agenda.
Personally, I would have a hard time believing anything released by that jack ass has not been carefully cherry picked.

At this stage, everyone knows the US government is spying on the everything they do. Most people just don't care. Everyone also knows that wikileaks guy is a fart muffin. So... they also don't care.

Comment IBM on track to.. (Score 5, Insightful) 34

IBM on track to demonstrate just how broken the US patent system is.

I mean, for fucks sake, it's getting to where it is literally impossible for any company to produce anything at all without violating some patent from some asshole who will never even produce the fucking thing.
I think it would be better to ignore patent law all together. You know, like the US did after ww2 ;)

Comment Cruise missles (Score 1) 406

I am not sure you are aware of this, but aircraft carriers are huge targets. China has invested huge sums of money in hypersonic anti-ship cruise missiles. They have tons of the things. And they have a long range. Unless you are saying that the US can magically shoot them all down, if a hot war came around, the US navy would find its ships very quickly reduced in numbers.

Comment Why don't you like it? (Score 1) 406

Just out of curiosity, why don't you like it?
Is it because of the "evil" communism thing? I would argue that they're version of pure capitalism is far more scary.
Though, the government, thankfully, is trying like hell to dial that back. "profit at any cost" is very dangerous to everyone.

Countries rise and fall. That's just the way of things. China, at one time was the most power civilization on the planet. They invented all kinds of amazing things and made huge advancements in our knowledge about how the world works.
Still, I do hope that the US can get their shit together. I don't see that happening though. For years now they have made higher education more and more difficult to get for the average person. The political elite are becoming more and more openly corrupt. More and more power is being given to corporations. No, I do not see this going well for the American people.

Comment Re: Time for war (Score 1) 406

Remember the time that Japan gathered up all the white people and put them into work camps during WW2? No? Oh yeah, that is what the Americans did to anyone who looked Asian during WW2. They also confiscated all their property and belonging. Most of which were never returned.
Get off your fucking high horse.
People, in general, are fucking monsters when they are scared. Morality goes out the window. It doesnt matter if you are White, Asian or Black. Japanese, Chinese, American or Mexican. Everyone is capable of the same atrocities.
