I'm curious to know how consistently denigrating obese people is even remotely part of a real solution to their obesity. Seems like you're pretty fuckin' far from being all about anything but bigotry in this thread.

Re: The Fatty McFatterson Disease

Looks like you're trying to build yourself up by putting others down. There are lots of paths through life, and every one of them is valid.

Re: MS Bans you from Ownership?

Their PR has been horrendous. Some kind of hammer better drop soon. That's what they get for hiring Kulaf as their entire PR division. Most of it is just rumor and misinterpretation from people who haven't done any research on their own. Yeah, it's not like there's any way to know what a giant corp...

Re: MS Bans you from Ownership?

But none of this is really new. All manner of book, media, TV and game companies have been trying (and mostly succeeding) to take ownership away from us for products and services we have purchased for quite some time now. This is why I download any Kindle book I get and strip the DRM. That's exactl...

Re: MS Bans you from Ownership?

A recent statement from MS said: This is a big change, consumers don't always love change, and there's a lot of education we have to provide to make sure that people understand. They are starting to sound like Apple. They made the above statement, but this is what I heard: This is a big change, cons...

Re: Way to go Fidgety!!!

Grow your own, Freecare. Hah. I would actually have to get a medical card to be able to grow, though with all the kids out of the house, the missus is OK with it. With the new law, WA state lets us smoke but not grow. So, we're allowed to have it, but all forms of getting it are illegal. We should ...

Re: Game of Thrones

Wife finally finished ADWD. Not being able to spoil the ending after 2 years was affecting our relationship. But the flip side is that I have to finish Catching Fire before the movie comes out. It's still weird having to force myself to read. The brain injury was almost 4 years ago and I still have ...

Re: Android Development

I looked at marmalade and it looks really neat. I was going to download it before I noticed that it requires a monthly subscription to use it. Since I'm probably going to be developing really slow and just chipping away at a few apps, and since all my other ventures need input, I'm going to pass on ...

Re: Game of Thrones

We finally resolved our issues with Comcast. They did get us to commit to a 2 year contract but they gave us the farm, which includes free HBO for the entire 2 year duration. We got some good promo rate which even includes the extra DVR for my mother in law, and they made a large balance (we stopped...

Re: Game of Thrones

Comcast it turns out has been overcharging me for the last two years, so of course I only got free HBO just in time to watch the season ender. I wonder if there's another shows on HBO that are worth a shit.

Re: Big Brother Is Listening...

There's been plenty of evidence. The only problem is that any evidence that comes out is immediately suppressed under the umbrella of national security. That's the beauty of the Patriot Act. Any evidence against it is basically illegal, and that's by design. As a citizen, you are not harmed until yo...

Re: Big Brother Is Listening...

Haha I'm probably already on their list. I signed a petition against Echelon in the 90's and didn't think too much of it.

Re: Big Brother Is Listening...

Obama today said "Nobody is listening to your calls" and it's another semantic tap dance that's technically true. It's only done after the fact and it's done by computers using speech recognition. So there is no warm body listening to your calls, just powerful computers listening to identical copies...

Re: Big Brother Is Listening...

They are playing a semantic game where they are basically saying "we didn't give the government access to our servers" when the truth is that they are giving the government copies of their servers. Hence the massive data center the NSA is building in Utah, which is rumored to keep a copy of just abo...

Especially since he seemed to set the stage for this potential in the prologue. Clearly it was something he thought hard about.

Re: Game of Thrones

I thought the quality of writing dipped just a little in ADWD. Taken as a whole, the book was outstanding I thought, but a few of the long-winded Tyrion and Dany chapters did seem almost forced. Like dammit, he was having so much fun doing all this other shit that finishing this book was an obstacle...
