gonna be 27 this year... i think i joined here when i was 14 during the spore hype train. in 2010 i enlisted in the military as an integrated avionics specialist for bombers. it was a depressing job so i got honorably discharged after 3 years. in 2015 i went to japan for 3 months and lived there homeless for fun. this past year i moved in with my sister and im babysitting her kids. hopefully i can live here forever lol because my gap in working is outrageous. i forgot about my account here but i think i'll become active again

wow, those remind me of the little trophies you can earn from super smash bros

i wonder if someone will 3d print them? probably been done

These toys use near field communication (NFC) to interact with supported video game software, potentially allowing data to be transferred in and out of games and across multiple platforms.
that's actually pretty cool

why would they shut it down?

i'm assuming they made use of the youtube api to do everything. that's the purpose of the api, lol? did it block ads or something?

If anyone can give me a coherent  translation I'll give them a cookie.
i mean that homosexuality and its acceptance is uninteresting, while still being an alright cause to pursue from many different stances, it's just already fleshed out and well understood. all that is left is labor, campaigning, lobbying, changing minds, boring stuff, there isn't much left that requires serious and original thought or consideration. i don't find labor enjoyable, but this is all politics is really, choosing sides between issues, riding them to their natural conclusions, influencing others with your beliefs, jumping off when it becomes all too common or mainstream, finding other issues to back up, forever it goes on. it's labor for potentially no sake (or perhaps just an overstated benefit) of your own

but what can someone do about it, aside from remaining distant and politically apathetic? i think interest should be the prime motivator for issues instead of public expectance, but everything comes back to the public, public interest, so nothing is worth listening to others argue over if it doesn't personally interest you, if you aren't genuinely concerned about something.

Oh ok.

Attention everyone. Some guy is bored of "sexuality". Shut all the equal rights stuff down. This guy is bored so we'd all just better suck it up and live with the fact some people are second class citizens through no fault of their own.

it's more like the novelty is over, a vacuum for thought, there is nothing to be gained from thinking it over anymore. do you know what i mean? there isn't much standing in the way of homosexuality, everyone is embracing it, pride rallies are common, the countries adopting such and such are paving the way for others. anything remotely anti-gay is mostly arbitrary nonsense at this point and it's just silly. i'm not saying the cause is lost, just uninteresting labor, it's building a road through an already cleared forest.

i think there is value in always anticipating things, so if we look back at how homosexuality has been perceived, based on similiar treatment, i would say pedophilia or something taboo is going to be the next big thing. but, even as a thought experiment, to suggest such a thing is suicidal nowaday, but it's still far more interesting than listening to 'i don't like gays, that's reason enough for their mistreatment'

Don't link directly, archive it so they don't get clicks.

You don't want to inadvertently encourage this sort of thing and you don't want them to be able to pretend they never said something to stupid.

usually solid advice, but i'll always link directly to the old slashdot, since in most cases you get the gist from the descriptions alone. the truly insightful comments also help.

it's an art

anyone read this?

As an editor, I feel resentful of people who enjoy my work but proudly run an ablocker to starve my content of revenue.

It comes up a lot in conversation, especially online. “Oh yes, I can’t imagine viewing the Web without the ads blocked. I accidentally switched my adblocker off yesterday and it was HORRIBLE.”

No, it really wasn’t – it was perfectly fine, you’re just being a snob. The Web works well for me with the ads displayed.

how was that? don't like ads shoved in your face? you're clearly just a snob.

...the proud ad-blocking folk out there are happily starving sites (that they rely on for information and entertainment) of vital income. ... Taking delight in denying publishers that revenue shows either sociopathic tendencies or ignorance of economic realities.
you're fully able to block something you don't enjoy. it's your choice! you have the power to do away with it all, but shame on you for not thinking of us-the big bad adblocker is benefitting at our expense!

... ‘If ads weren’t so bad, we wouldn’t have to block them,’ they say. I sympathize – we all want the best possible experience online, but there has to be give-and-take in every transaction, even if that transaction is a transfer of information from a Web page to your brain. To wilfully ignore that give-and-take doesn’t sit well with my moral compass.
his principles stand in your way of enjoying the internet, but please respect them! you understand.

For all their sins, ads fuel much of the Web. Cut them out and you’re strangling the diversity of online voices and publishers – and I don’t think consumers really want that.
who cares? let them offer a product and receive compensation for the excellent services they provide the consumer, otherwise let them starve. forcing ads can only be seen as a disservice.

Modern browsers offer ‘Do Not Track’ options
which are a joke and often entirely ignored

(As a sidenote, I should mention Canvas ads. At The Next Web, we’ve been developing our Canvas ad format with the aim of making (as our CEO Boris likes to say) ‘ads so good you want to share them.’ We’re still perfecting the format, but I’m proud that the company I work for is trying to create ads that people won’t want to block in the first place).
yes, a full-screen interruption that jars the reader to all hell. brilliant! it's only a matter of course that i would infect all my friends with that crap. i understand intentionally viewing an foreign ad on youtube or something, (the actual video content i mean, not the additional ads or included video ads) because they are sometimes humorous and you miss out on super sweet inside jokes when you bar them all away.

this guy is an awful relic of the past, a technological dinosaur i hope soon dies off

recently i visited some website hoping to find a zwieback recipe not requiring yeast

#Invalid YouTube Link#
i guess i'm not understand how to embed youtube videos.

the art of web browsing, of pleasantly viewing articles across the web without interuptions or distractions... no

i visit your website solely to find this zwieback recipe. i expect an article informing me of the ingredients, preparations methods, and the like. why greet your visitor with an obnoxious fullscreen overlay that obscures the content below?

i don't understand it. it's annoying and devalues the entire experience

i block your various elements
your headers that crowd the screen
your social buttons, your share options
your site metrics, beacons, cookies, trackers and all other parasites
your ads, your terrible ads
your author blurbs, circle portraits, meet the teams, and such
your captions, comments, subtitles, and other commentaries
your oh, so handy! back-to-tops that follow as i scroll
your clingy nav bars that refuse to die
your feedback solicitations
your sidebars
your lists, and not the convenient sort, but the list you distribute over 20 separate pages
your footer. often a page in it's own right, the mass of nonsense filled with crap, crap, crap, crap, crap

donate for more of our crap
advertise our crap to all your friends
we owe our crap to you

i sculpt your horrible elements and bring out the content that interests me, nothing more, so i look forward to the day this madness ends, all the while knowing it never will

i understand very little of this world

i have no idea what a grad student is. the price of gas? i don't know. why should i build credit? i don't understand it. no one appreciates a simple flower, but floral patterns, decor, and accessories are all the rage. inseparate opinions, knowledge, and madness that everyone accepts. what does a corvette look like? how did he know that was a honda? amazing knowledge, truly worth nothing at all!

it's ridiculous. everyone runs about without their head

god forbid someone goes astray or the disaster and crisis flying out to inform us all of unread messages!

seriously, why?

i'm retired in every sense from this stuff. i'm beyond it. when my savings run dry i'll become an amazing homeless guy! i can't wait! i imagine an awful adventure filled with disease, starvation, and nudity
