Comment morality, politics, power and censorship (Score 1) 70

There's some morality stuff going on here. If you've ever been here you'll know that movies are re-edited and sanitised, swearing is censored and all that. Which is amazingly weird since the females are generally quite hot... This will be mostly political. You can go to prison here for "offending the church" etc.

Comment Re:People and Places Vouching You? (Score 2) 88

This is true, but consider that in the company I am currently working in we have an ex-staff member that wasn't that great. In fact, not so great that over a year onward he still appears in our company page as one of the higher ups (at least by title). I've tried to flag it multiple times but LinkedIn support came back with something to the effect of "yeah we get it but every time you say he's not in the company, we tell him to update his details.. ultimately it's user generated however".. the inference is if you get flagged they just ask you to update your profile. Obviously he's choosing to keep this active for what ever reason (or just ignoring it all) - but I think no matter what it looks as if he's associated with the company for anyone who looks at us on LinkedIn. Pretty shit.

Comment wtf (Score 1) 471

seriously .. why is this news? it actually makes perfect sense. the whole up in arms "think of the children" or "dont be sexist" or "anti model" brigades are all jumping the gun ... shouldn't we be ridiculing those that look at CGI bodies (which are so obviously generated, confirmed and articulated as such) and think "I want to look like that".. how is this a 'perfect' body? when did H&M ever say that? have we all gone full retard?

Comment ironic much? (Score 1) 200

Wait. Did anyone else pick up the irony? Empathy lets us feel another persons pain. We just "discovered" that rats have the ability to it.. - Great news! We can be cruel to rats in order to learn more about our empathy? There are two immediate possibilites that pop into mind from there: that the planned research to generalise over to us is intended to help us disable or manipulate empathy ... and or that in other news, human to animal empathy is showing to be lacking. i liked the post saying to speak to any pet owner or look at any wildlife doco...

Comment Re:Christian Science (Score 1) 294

Yeah, I'm going to read an article from a "Christian Science" publication. Whatever that is. Skipping this one.

Translation: "derp derp herr derp" The irony... kind of how I feel about religion...yet CSMonitor is one of the better newspapers out there - they actually have less propaganda than cnn.. (I'm assuming AC is American hence thinks cnn is a good benchmark.)
