I already have a Vita (I'm one of those people who consider it a must have, most Indies are better on the Vita than on any other platform), and I'm not interested in a whole new one - I would however pay for an updated Vita, with better remote play and standard SD cards. » 2/20/15 4:35pm 2/20/15 4:35pm

Well, I think it's both. In the Justine Sacco-case, it was painfully obvious that she meant it as a slightly off-colour comment on white privilege and ignorance; she wasn't a clueless white person, she was commenting on being a clueless white person. HOWEVER - she did it in a way that is only obvious to other liberal… » 2/14/15 4:32am 2/14/15 4:32am

I'm not sure about the best (Rollerball?), but the absolute worst is without a doubt Quidditch. It is so obviously made up by someone who doesn't enjoy sports. It could be an ok game without the Snitch, or if the snitch was nerfed, but the way it's set up now, it is basically a game between two Seekers, with lots of… » 1/22/15 7:57am 1/22/15 7:57am

Yeah, if I remember my Media Law correctly, the test in the UK was that it was libel if one could prove that 12 people in the UK would recognize you. The only places where you are safe from a libel or slander suit are in court or in parliament; though if you report, as a journalist, that someone is accused of being… » 1/21/15 4:00am 1/21/15 4:00am

As an outsider, it sometimes seems like US corporations literally get actual idiots elected and then just run them like puppets. There're stories like this one, but also those pre-printed statements where the congressmen were supposed to add their own name but instead went with "blank". » 1/16/15 1:17am 1/16/15 1:17am

This. It seems both the author of the article and the Copyright Office is wilfully misunderstanding the point behind this practice; I happen to know that there are whole crowd-sourcing sites set up and funded (mostly by smaller law-firms) just to find the kind of "evidence of prior use" or "evidence of prior… » 1/12/15 4:55pm 1/12/15 4:55pm

Uhh. I'm sure there's a shorter, more elegant way, but surely this is the simplest - just keep pouring from small to big! Only fill the small one when it's empty. Empty the big one when it's full. Works in all three cases (capacity in brackets): » 1/12/15 4:01am 1/12/15 4:01am

This is the best reply. I was mostly, not wholly, on DrunkExPat' side in so far as I thought someone asking for sex in exchange for a ride is not creepy in itself. But this response convinced me, mostly - if it was not in the right section of CL, the posting of the ad was most probably a part of the sexual act, and… » 12/28/14 4:30pm 12/28/14 4:30pm
