Comment Chronically Stupid Parents (Score 5, Insightful) 588

I occasionally read about parents in affluent Marin, CA whining about this. In fact, there was a movement to prevent PG&E (the local power company) from installing real-time meters that transmit usage over radio because they were afraid it could hurt them. I remember seeing a parent interviewed on the evening news, with her kid in the background playing on an iPad. Did I mention that Marin also has one of the lowest child immunization rates in the country? Yeah. These are people that get all their "facts" from Pintrest and Jenny McCarthy.

Comment Bad User Experience (Score 1) 528

These advertisers have simply overwhelmed and saturated the user experience of so many web properties to the point where they aren't tolerable. Try to going to any site without adblock and see how slowly it loads and how impossible it is use the site. Frankly, slashdot is among the worst offenders. I just visited and ABP reported 25 blocked adverts. It's pretty much out of control. I mean fuck, shit, cock, ass, titties, boner, bitch, muff, pussy, cunt, butthole, Barbra Streisand!

Comment FAA & Public Safety (Score 1, Insightful) 236

I'd like to read the court's judgement to better understand the reason, but while the FAA may seem overbearing in this case, the FAA is charged with public safety, and they take it very seriously. Anyone that did complain to the police or the FAA had Good Reason. Incidents with RC aircraft are not uncommon. I have to agree with the FAA on this one. If someone is appearing to be reckless with their aircraft, regardless of the type, it needs to be addressed.
