837 - Dennis Miller selling gold
Friday, January 29, 2010


For some reason.

Gold Line

Just to be clear, Dennis Miller is a millionaire several times over. He makes lots of money, and almost certainly does NOT buy gold from this company. This does help his "portfolio" (stacks of cash in a bank somewhere) when they pay him 10 - $15,000 for a quote and a picture.




You know eventually, everyone is going to die. Even D. Miller. Will he need the small amount of extra money he got here from selling out (sell out number FB342CC-132... yes he now sells out in Hex) more than the need to not scam people out of what little money they have left?

Wine Experts

"So much for objectivity. But results like this shouldn't be surprising. I've blogged about this before, but it's such a cool experiment that it's worth repeating. In 2001, Frederic Brochet, of the University of Bordeaux, conducted two separate and very mischievous experiments. In the first test, Brochet invited 57 wine experts and asked them to give their impressions of what looked like two glasses of red and white wine. The wines were actually the same white wine, one of which had been tinted red with food coloring. But that didn't stop the experts from describing the "red" wine in language typically used to describe red wines. One expert praised its "jamminess," while another enjoyed its "crushed red fruit." Not a single one noticed it was actually a white wine."

"The second test Brochet conducted was even more damning. He took a middling Bordeaux and served it in two different bottles. One bottle was a fancy grand-cru. The other bottle was an ordinary vin du table. Despite the fact that they were actually being served the exact same wine, the experts gave the differently labeled bottles nearly opposite ratings. The grand cru was "agreeable, woody, complex, balanced and rounded," while the vin du table was "weak, short, light, flat and faulty". Forty experts said the wine with the fancy label was worth drinking, while only 12 said the cheap wine was."

833 - Spam


Some very reasonable spam in there, something that anyone can respect. If you are going to spam people, sending out tons of junk mail around the world, at the very least you should do it right (DIR.)

"Alex, $17.50 buys you free advertising for life."
If only everything I pay for were free...

"pleaseeeeee 207.244.204.161 show me the money!"
The name is 207.244.204.162 man, get it right or pay the price!

832 - Number 1 Avatard


Still having computer problems. A less hackerish person (you, everyone you know) would not have 3 extra computers around to use in just this event. One might argue that such a 1337 hacker such as myself would be able to fix a broken computer right away, but that is exactly what I want you to think. Its called reverse hackerology, and it works.

829 - iPad (iSlate) is out!


The iPhone is by all accounts a good phone, even PC people like me can admit that. It is shackled to craptastic AT&T for now, but the hardware is really nice and the app store was a great idea. I bet they will also do a good job with the iPad.

And yet somehow, Steve Jobs is still the worlds biggest douche.

825 - Severe computer virus
Sunday, January 24, 2010





I recently got hit by the worst virus I have seen to date (well it is actually malware or spyware or something like that.) I cant shake it, system restore is GONE (which may be a result of the virus) and the internet wont work. So the only choice is a redo of XP. For that reason, posts will be few and far between for a while, at least 24 hours from now. Sorry to all of the many dedicated readers (1) but we will recover from this and move on to create a better tomorrow full of quake III and evony.

Ironically the only thing still working, and working fine, is Quake 3. So I can still play it. The little Netbook is working but really how can one be expected to use that in a room with a 24 inch monitor?

824 - SKEPTIOWNED
Friday, January 22, 2010


"Remember the company that made millions by selling totally worthless bomb-sniffing magic wands to the military, detectors that were used at checkpoints in Iraq to search cars, and which failed to detect the terrorist bombs used to kill 155 people in October and 120 more in December last year?

Yeah, well, Jim McCormick, the head of the company that sold those useless dowsing rods, just got arrested for — oh, let me savor typing these words — "suspicion of fraud"."

Bad Astronomy

Phil is really happy about this news, and indeed it is a step in the right direction. However, the more cynical and bitter among us (well, I) can only really be happy if the government does not waste money on stupid crap in the first place.

Perhaps readers will see this story and wonder how the military could fall for something so stupid. Well I think they need to stop and think about acupuncture, acupressure, chiropractics, herbal medicines, bottled water, feng shui, astrology, numerology, Christianity, and all of the other superstitions that Americans use every single day. Our culture is weighed down, nearly buried under layers of ignorance and superstition. It costs money, time, and hurts people in countless ways. Even if it does no harm, or in some rare instances does good (Christianity), it is wrong. Some people are content to invent their own story about The Universe, but others will not settle for anything less than the truth.

821 - NO H8 (aka NH2K)


We at R2K (a quake 3 blog) were shocked to see Cindy McCain take such an SnM style picture in support of same sex marriage. Her daughter is for this cause, but her vampire-mummy husband (who thinks that a planetarium is "foolishness" and "an overhead projector.") was or is politically against it.

Not only is she hot (an ultra-mafic ultra-milf), but...

Well I forgot what else to say about this.

NoH8

Oh and for the record, adults with serious causes may consider not using teenage text speak (what was once 1337 sp33k but is now just lame tw1tt3r t3xt.)

818 - Avatards? Really?



"London, England (CNN) -- Obsessive, overenthusiastic, fanatical -- call them what you will. [D-bags? Sluts? Hemi-sexuals?]

They used to be the exception rather than the norm. But these days, devoted fan followings are cropping up with increasing frequency. [No, I think they just calved, just broke off of the Star Wars glacier to float the worlds oceans alone until melting.]

The latest embodiment of the die-hard fans that have emerged: "Avatards," the loyal followers of James Cameron's wildly popular 3D science fiction film "Avatar." - CNN

Now if CNN just got the story, it must be several months old. Normally R2K would be fully up to date on any media or technology topics, but I simply can't read about Avatar.

So in conclusion...

Avatards, really? How about avatarians or better yet, Pandorans? Avatar in a vacuum would be a decent film, passing grades for action. But in this jerkoff frenzy of fans and money and merch, it just can't hold up.

815 - Want something fun to do?

Go into any set of images on facebook, a longer one with more than 20 is best. Click through the pictures a bit with the mouse. Then use the right arrow key to advance images - just hold it down. Note that each time around the full set, the rate will increase. I do not know why this happens, perhaps the computer loads them into ram? But it will get much faster, increasing each time for perhaps 5 or 10 times. By the end, they will be moving at what seems like a dozen per second. How is this even possible?

One time I did it for a half hour and started to bleed out of my eyes and left nipple.

Discuss.

814 - Avatar sucks
Monday, January 18, 2010







After finally watching this film, for free god bless me, I confirmed exactly as expected...
that www.avatarsucks.com

Was it the worst film ever? Not at all. But for 300 million, with profits in the billions and with people getting suicidal over it, Avatar should have been better than just another shallow, white man bad, ethnic alien good film. Just like Titanic, this film was painfully shallow and simple. Good special effects cant fix that, not for me anyway. Also, for the record, the choice of unobtanium for the valuable mining product's name may have been cool to all of the middle school grads who flocked to this film in sweaty pizza mouth breathing numbers, but it was really corny to people who have used this word seriously and understand its meaning. Just dumb. The native american - Jamaican, jar jar binks race was really insulting. And obviously that brings us full circle to a very similar film with great special effects, and dead as a rock dialog: Phantom Menace. What a waste of money.

"Each tree has 10^4 connections to the trees around it. An there are 10^12 trees on Pandora. It's more connections than the human brain. Get it? It's a network."

The science in this film is painfully dumb, but good thing this film is not science fiction. It is like Star Wars; an action film with special effects and fake science. Big difference. Oh and for the record the human brain has quite a large number of connections, perhaps 10^15 which is close to the connections on all the trees of Pandora.

On the plus side, from time to time a drop of Jew or Roma would slip out of the avatar people, and I think they were speaking some kind of fruity Klingon dialect for a spell. That plus floating rocks.

What needs to happen is James Cameron needs to invest about 300 mill. into making this film:

Evony: All the boobs that's fit to boob.

Put that shit on Imax 3D...
