  1. I just noticed this but, look at the sample that the study worked from

    "The study looked at a large sample from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health), which began with adolescents in grades 7-12 in the United States during the 1994-95 school year. The participants were interviewed as 18- to 28-year-olds from 2001 to 2002. The study also looked at the General Social Survey, another cross-national data collection source."

    having only a 10 year age group sample when voting age ranks from 18 to (infinity) is not representative.

    If this was a legitimate study, they would have IQ Tested people across most age groups. Of course, they didn't do that. they only interviewed the most liberal age group in the united states for their results!

    Just more of CNN's bullshit

  2. i hate it when companies get greedy like this and they think that they're going to make money by taking usage rights away from the end user.

    it doesn't work very well, either. just ask the RIAA

    Why doesn't sony just sell those jampack disks they used to sell for like four dollars? i used to love those! you got like twelve demo versions, some cool videos, ect, and the best part is that it was cheap. if sony somehow implemented that digitally, or jut offered a ps3 variation of Jampack, that would make them a pretty good sum of money

  3. I read the headline and the first thing that came to my head was "bullshit".

    Maybe i'll release some overfunded study which proves that republican polygamists are more intelligent than liberal monogamists, but it wouldn't matter anyway because your intelligence level isn't dictated by your political or social beliefs.

    then again, that doesn't matter either because i'm smarter than everyone.

    The best feature of Chrome though, is being able to type whatever you want in the search bar. If it's not a valid web address, you get results in Google. Just made sure it doesn't do that in Safari -- confirmed. Safari has a separate search bar, which is clearly superfluous.

    That's what Google is good at: taking someone else's idea, adding nothing and rearranging it to make it look "simple". All Google did with that browser is remove the bottom status bar, remove the File, Edit, View, and help menus while taking the two address bars at the top and combine them into one. Bingo, best browser in the world, even though it lacks almost all of the functionality that other browsers offer, it is still considered better in most cases.

  5. come to think of it I don't know why it scored me as authoritarian, since I think a lot of the problems that exist in the country today stem from the government being TOO authoritarian (like the EPA, for example.)

    I think it misunderstood me about some issues, like excessive sexual open-ness being harmful to society, where I answered that I agree. It interpreted that as "I agree and wish that a dictator would get rid of people who are sexually open", when I really meant "I agree but there's really nothing that can be done about it which doesn't violate the Constitution"

  6. Here's another thing I don't get: why does everyone love Google chrome? It's just basically a poor-man's Safari, only worse. It's supposed to be the most optimized browser available, but the only optimization I see is the fact that they combined the Google search bar with the address bar. Yeah, real revolutionary.

    Plus, the browser always gave me issues. It tended to crash on a regular basis, had trouble displaying webpages, and would even have trouble playing .GIF files (I'm serious). I used it for a while and I was so shocked and disgusted at how awful it was that I switched back to Firefox, which is equally as shitty.

    OMG, some of you are still using Google products?

    Isn't it clear by now that they are utterly non-benign and have a kind of sense of entitlement? i.e. "Everyone trusts us and we're such a nice company that we don't need to adhere to any standards of common decency. Or laws."

    Altavista (for instance) will deliver all your search needs without as much BS.

    I used them back before I knew how malicious/stupid they were and now I'm trying to switch all my shit to different companies.

  8. I'm not the world's best musician, but I'll also crack out a few songs when I'm not busy. I am also somewhat of a Video Game historian, because I love, love, love, love, LOVE video game history.

    I don't know EVERYTHING yet, but I'm to the point where if you named me two consoles, I could likely tell you which one came first or which one was more powerful

  9. So far, the only maps I've gotten close to completing were drawn out in MSPAINT first, then blasted out in Doom Builder, and improved, improved, and so on until I think it's good enough.

    I've never publicly submitted my maps because frankly, there's only one which i put a lot of effort into and I don't know if it meets standards for a good map.

    I'll have to see
