Re: U.S. Supreme Court Strikes Down DOMA

HOORJ!

This kind of progress is inevitable, but it's nice to see (at least this reform) come sooner rather than later.

Hackintosh

IOS development on a virtual machine is like pulling teeth. I'm in the process of getting a (very) cheap, old macbook, circa 2009 to make the job slightly less freaking awful. Which is fine. But I'd also like to justify buying shiny new hardware for other things. Like gaming. So I'm putting together...

Re: Teen girl threatens to move to Australia after Obama vic

I saw something like this earlier . Phil, I'm glad your a good rep for 'MERICA! ATTENTION CONSERVATIVE TWEETERS: The rest of the world is less conservative than the US is right now . Barack Obama is not an especially liberal president, let alone a "socialist". The only place you can go to have a mo...

Re: Would you pay $1000 for a game?

Of course, I'm way too out of shape to start playing again, but you may have just given me an idea of something to do when I lose a bit of weight... The stop-start nature of the game makes it arguably one of the best ways to lose weight. But only if you're far worse than, or at roughly the same lev...

Re: Would you pay $1000 for a game?

MMOs aren't really games - at least not the way we played WoW. I think of it more as belonging to a sporting club or something. You're paying rent for the training and admin etc, but you're playing for the community - the people with which you play. It's a social thing. I spend 40 bucks a month (usu...

Re: "Victims of Legitimate Rape Don't Get Pregnant"

When laying out sentencing options, do they allow convicted rapists to pay 50 shekels of silver and then marry their victim?

That would be a traditional approach in keeping with their values.

Re: "Victims of Legitimate Rape Don't Get Pregnant"

Looks like they're getting it from these fuckers. I understand the desire to boil things down to right and wrong with a clearly defined line. But that often doesn't happen, and blanket legislation doesn't make the moral line any clearer. What you can make a clear distinction on: rape is a terrible t...

Re: "Victims of Legitimate Rape Don't Get Pregnant"

The sad part is that this isn't the first time a Republican has suggested that this is the case - I remember hearing it almost a year ago and doing a spit-take.

Re: WBC Banned from Military Funerals

Well that's going to be a relief.

Crazy that legislation like that had to be created in the first place, but it seems to be a Good Thing.

Re: Forced Pregnancy Tests in Highschool

Fuck yeah for Obama Care. QFMFT! It's depressing that shit like the PATRIOT act can be shot through and turned into law with nary a complaint from the self-described libertarian lobby groups, yet something as obviously important as health care reform is a big deal and has to be pushed through by de...

Re: Forced Pregnancy Tests in Highschool

Plus if they find out the girl is pregnant they can kick them out of school. Conservatives in the US really do upset me some times. Mmm. I know this isn't an explicitly "Christian"-based idea (unlike some of the terrible legislation that gets pooped out in the US), but I'll bet dollars to...
