"According to the SJW crowd. losing weight makes you fatphobic"

Not to mention you have to be careful now if you post a photo of yourself getting fit and skinny quickly after giving birth. That also means you hate fat people and are pressuring them to lose weight.

Taking the "fat phobia" further, it's getting to the point where if a man chooses a skinny woman over a fat one, he must hate fat people. People need to be "trained" to find fat women more attractive because they have been "trained" to think otherwise and must be wrong. If you don't date someone overweight there is a problem with you.

There are actually services for women to rate doctors that don't harp people to lose weight when they are obese. It's pure insanity when a doctor can't express concern over someones well being because it may trigger them.

Hillary can beat Drumpf without working too hard. Sanders can beat Drumpf without even needing to open his mouth. Frankly the democrats could run a ficus tree and almost certainly defeat Drumpf.

The only person who has anything to gain from having Drumpf defeated before November is Cruz as he is the only GOP contender left who could possibly win the nomination if Drumpf was run out.

Hillary has no chance. Trump can work the show and has owned beauty pageants. It wouldn't be beneath him to run a Ms. Bill Raped Me USA and the woman would proudly participate to have their stories heard. How can the SJW rally against rape culture then Hillary is an enabler to the extreme. Debates he can have rape victims font row, have them at rallies, etc.

I'm just sayin d0gg it ain't that bad. My daily driver desktop uses Cent7, but when I'm on the road I don't want to have to worry about hibernation having a hiccup or taking that hit in battery life.

Comment Ah well (Score 1, Troll) 545

Over all I'm enjoying windows 8/8.1... The start screen isn't my cup of tea, but then again I use it the same way i use the start bar in Win7, hit the windows key and type a few letters then enter to select the app I want. Only difference is I can see the weather and maybe a news headline at the same time. One thing I love about it though is the new theme, it's like Win 3.1 done right, its simple, elegant and out of your way. So with pretty much instant start up time, great battery life, clean lines, and built in hyper-v Windows 8 is my choice, so I'm sure I'll enjoy 9 as well.

Submission + - Apple's newest executive advocating rape and murder of women (

skipkent writes: The music industry’s heart and soul is found here in Music City. When Apple decided to acquire a new executive, focusing on music, chatter began to filter through the industry.

Apple’s newest executive has been recorded multiple times advocating the murder of white people, domestic abuse, rape and objectification of women, illegal drug use, violence towards the gay community, and unwarranted, illegal gun violence.

In 1992, he was arrested for assaulting a police officer. Additionally, in the previous year, Apple’s newest executive was arrested for beating a defenseless woman to within an inch of her life.

I use T-Mobile 4G, and we use it as our ISP at home, we added a line and just use a phone as a wifi hotspot. I get roughly 25mbps of unlimited unthrottled usage. All https and streaming services work even after the "hotspot" quota is reached. Also for general http browsing once the tether max has been reached, use linux FF or have FF identify itself as the linux version, and tmo will think that youre browsing from your phone! Just about the only thing its bad for is gaming with the higher latency.

skipkent writes: One of the most infamous urban legends in video games has turned out to be true.P

Digging in Alamogordo, New Mexico today, excavators discovered cartridges for the critically-panned Atari game E.T., buried in a landfill way back in 1983 after Atari couldn't figure out what else to do with their unsold copies. For decades, legend had it that Atari put millions of E.T. cartridges in the ground, though some skeptics have wondered whether such an extraordinary event actually happened.
