Re: "Dirty Harry" Discussion

Edit: I count shots in movies for the record. The thirty-six shot handgun clip never fails to annoy me. People who confuse the term "clip" for when they meant to say "magazine" annoys me. Well, no, actually I don't give a shit :D. But I know a few gun owners who get pissed about...

Dad, where is Grandpa right now?

Re: "Crossbows" Discussion

Now, while I know I can't handle the math for figuring what kind of a physics scenario would require crossbows to survive the aftermath, I certainly could man-handle a physicist or two until they tell me. Their puny little arms can't load their medieval weaponry fast enough to stop me. Score one for...

Re: "Correlation" Discussion

Though, at this point, I have to ask, at what level of correlation can you assume causation? I mean, Say I have an issue with a computer wire being loose. I plug it in, it's fixed. I unplug it, it's broken again. I plug it in yet again, and it works once more. I think anybody with a basic level of ...

Re: Pep Talk

but you don't even need to understand them to enjoy watching a game. Do. Please. Share the secret behind enjoying watching people on television play a game. I've never understood that. I can understand wanting to play a sport (hang out with friends, get a nice workout), but the whole concept of sit...

Re: "Cover-Up" Discussion

So, who here looked up at their own ceiling after reading this comic? I did, before I even managed to read the alt text. And now who here is reading this post, resisting the urge to look up at their ceiling; a ceiling that they've never really paid much attention to and that, for all they know, cou...

Re: "Security" discussion

I remember reading a Slashdot post about getting a laptop past border security without the Feds having access to your files. There were a great number of suggestions about using Truecrypt, locking all your data into an unhackable block, changing the boot partition, etc. Oddly enough, nobody suggeste...

Re: "Marshmallow Gun" Discussion

Forgive me if I should know, but what is a "wooter"? Woot.com is a site that offers deals on fairly random merchandise, either discontinued or refurbished. Every midnight they roll out a different thing, and if supplies are low, it'll be gone in minutes. Loads of subculture and in-jokes o...

Re: "Forks and Spoons" Discussion

By ignoring generational barriers, one could free themselves of the "binary" restriction. Of course, that would then set you up for all sorts of Oedipal Forx jokes, and that would be awful.

I'd have to gouge out my eyes with some sort of dull, scooping mechanism.
