Re: T:Genisys

...but Fox at least gives new show concepts a chance.

I'd hardly say they gave Firefly a real chance. It was shoved into an awful time slot, execs were constantly fiddling with Whedon's plans/vision for the show, and the episodes were [more]

Re: T:Genisys

I still need to go back and watch the Sarah Conner Chronicles. I've only seen like 2 episodes :(

Well worth the watch. I still don't think Fox knows what to do with good sci-fi, and I wouldn't blame Summer Glau in the least if she [more]

Re: It’s official: America is now No. 2

And they've only got... what... 4x as many people? The idea that somehow they can have that many people, be the manufacturer (and technological thief) of the world's widgets, yet not have a larger economy, is hopelessly quaint, but still used to good [more]

Re: For steve203-An Eulogy for Radio Shack

Do you think Radio Shack will be saved by a Knight in shining armor or will the big wigs just use their Golden Parachutes and leave the wage slaves to sink with the ship?

Personally, I'd like to see those golden parachutes sliced off [more]

Re: Cheap way to neuter dogs

Churchy - who has a spayed cat, a spayed dog and a dog we'd call "Numbnuts" if he had any left.

Re: American Dream only alive for those who work

Right now the snake oil being sold is that all we have to do is get back to old fashioned American values and everything will be hunkie dorie. Americans are buying it in droves.

Re: X-Post -- New Star Wars Teaser

I sure hope those little side sabers are actually functional, and not just another plot hole (ok, why did darth whoever's wrist not get sliced when using them in that last fight scene....)

Re: Macroeconomics of social discord

But on a related topic, one thing we really have to stop is the way the news stories always start their lead in with the generic "White man, Black teen, single mother, etc." That immediately invokes all our subconscious biases, and it is [more]

Re: Macroeconomics of social discord

It is a person's social network, mostly, that determines how well they succeed in life. If you want address social discord, you are going to have to alter a child's social network, and your are going to have to do it early. A kid won't become an [more]

He didn't say the blacks were unemployed because they were black. He said there were no jobs for the black people he knows, ,which was a true statement.

Re: OT Darren Wilson will NOT be charged.

I wonder what the negotiations are about. It is a no-brainer that this guy needs to transfer out of town, out of state, far away.

Re: Ice maker problem--leak (long)

Re: Ice maker problem--leak (long)

Well, diagnosing over the net is going to be an issue, to be sure. Since you have no leaks in overtly visible locations, my first two guesses would be too high water pressure causing either splashing as the tray is filling, or the sensor responsible [more]

Re: Net neutrality: cute

It might even be paid for by a tiny surcharge on the terabyte to be paid back perhaps in the form of a revenue bond, or more generalized 'covered' bond as done in Europe.
