Comment It'll take a lot to get me to upgrade (Score 1) 93

It's going to take me a lot to upgrade. I've got an iPhone 6 Plus now. It's two years old but man, I've never had such a good phone. The phone battery has never actually run empty, and regularly I come home after a day with still 75% left. The screen is large and bright. All apps launch fast (except Facebook, which I deleted and now use in the browser). I can set the font nice and small, while still readable. The fingerprint-unlock is amazing, and it takes real great pics and optically-stabilized movies of my kid.

Not sure how they can improve it.

Racism isn't bad because it's mean. Racism is bad because it is stupid. Like, having a heartfelt belief that red cars are faster than blue cars kinda stupid.

Tribalism and identity politics, on the other hand are bad because they make enemies of everyone outside the tribe.

That's what's happening. All these people trying to push their tribe forward are creating bad feelings. They're not helping anyone, including those they purport to support.

Comment Have they fixed their terms? (Score 2) 18

In March this year, the owner of Pinboard complained about IFTTT's terms:

What it comes down to, is that if you integrate IFTTT with your product, you have to agree to the following terms:
- You implement their API but it's not the public one, instead it's an API which is only shown after agreeing to the terms
- When they change their API, you promptly update your code as well
- You will never compete with them
- They own the rights to all content that's pumped into IFTTT
- If you add something clever to the API, they own the patents

It's so funny, listening to death worshiping western nations who rely on foreign born to make up for all the children they didn't feel it their responsibility to bear and raise.

Like fleas talking about how much more evolved they are than dogs.

So, on topic... you get that has as much population as North and South America, Africa and Europe combined, right?

They only need a tiny percentage of their young population to develop these skills to outnumber your entire domestic IT workforce. Judging them by the average Indian may be good for your ego, but it won't help you understand why this is happening.

Is there room in your brain for the possibility that you're just sheltered?

I tried asking a woman for consent once. She was in my bed, and I said "Tell me you want it."


"Tell me you want it."


"Tell me you don't want it."


"Tell me something."


I got fed up, rolled over and went to sleep.

Next day, her girlfriend is explaining how she wanted me so bad, that's why she was there, but she couldn't say the words, because she wanted to remain a good girl. She wanted me to be the bad guy so she could have what she wanted while remaining the good girl.

That's our job as men. To take the risks, be the domineering, "bad" guy. No matter how many laws are passed that could put us in jail for trying, no matter how dangerous they make it, no matter how much they criminalize healthy, natural interactions between men and women, it's still our job.

Ever heard the stereotypical "I don't want to tell you what to do, I just want you to do it." line women like to say?

That's them telling you, in plain english, that they value their submissive role more than they value having all the other things they want.

That's human nature.

The women who are making all the noise don't speak for women. They're freakish outliers, not representatives of their gender. Most of their gender simply doesn't wish to speak up at all.

Pandering to them does not mean you're "respecting women".

Might I suggest you conduct an experiment to confirm or refute? Go visit a small town where you won't feel concerned about embarressing yourself and having to see them at the grocery store, and experiment with behaving as though you were a man.

There was that one time... I was at a party and joked to my buddies "Why do people always say they're going to pick up a woman, but they never do? This is how you pick up a woman.", then turned around, grabbed the nearest cutie and thew her over my shoulder.

Then I carried her out of the apartment, down the street to my apartment building, up the stairs and through the apartment, threw her on the bed, tore her clothes off and fucked her brains out.

I never actually asked her for consent, but she was giggling the whole way there, so, I dunno... does that count?

The fact that women can and do tear down entire, functional and productive organizations and destroy mens careers like this with some tears and stories is why they shouldn't be allowed to participate in the first place.

If he assaulted you, you should be down at the police station with wounds you received defending yourself. If you didn't defend yourself, then quit asking us to take your claims of assault seriously.

This shit has to stop. These bitches need to start being publicly identified and shunned, along with the organizations that coddle them.
