Seeing as you already get email, invoices, bills, spam, et al. online what the hell do you need the post office for beyond home deliveries to the elderly and infirm and some parcel delivery?

Yeah this weather is crazy. We're supposed to get back in the double digits again this week. We're a good 5-10 degrees above seasonal depending on the day. I don't forsee a white Xmas this year.

They actually expect people to pay for this...VR demo they're calling a game? So you just fly around an empty low res city? Wow, sounds like more fun than a human being should be allowed to have. Wry

I guess you're supposed to smoke a marijuana cigarette listen to Lenny Kravitz Fly Away as you play?

Hey Vern, I don't want to speak for Cutter here (EVER! ) but he might be referring to good ol' Jim Varney...

and if you're too young to remember him, SCREW YOU! And get off my lawn!

Oh it's absolutely that. Love Jim. Those ads he used to do were funny as hell.

No, long sentences would not act as a deterrent. Do long prison sentences stop the narcotic trade? No. Do speeding laws stop people from speeding? No. Do anti-piracy laws stop people from pirating? No. Kids who do this sort of thing don't understand the consequences and/or think they won't get caught no matter what they do.

We also have laws and rights in theory to protect us from unreasonable punishment. A civilized society has such rights to protect us all. 20 years in hardcore prison doesn't fit this sort of crime. Personal desire for revenge doesn't make society a better place. Prisons often make people worse, not better.

The real problem is the militarized police. They should not be breaking into homes as they are.


Yes, deterrents absolutely work and that's been proven time and again. Narcotics is about risk vs. reward in monetary terms. Speeding laws are a revenue generating mechanism and they're dangerous, but they do deter people. Seeing as you can lose your license or ability to drive because of being refused insurance due to being a repeat offender they absolutely work.

This punk basically attempted to murder people over 100 times. So yes, when other idiots consider doing this and say 'Hrm, do I really want to go to prison for 20 years just to get back at some guy online that I don't even know called me a fag during a game?' For 99.9% of them the answer will be no. For that 0.1% that do, they don't belong in society at any rate so problem solved by locking them away.

Your final point is the only correct one you've made.

How often does anyone actually get killed in a swatting? For all the dangers that are involved, as a way to actually get someone killed it is pretty useless. A charge of manslaughter if someone does get killed might stick, or reckless endangerment if someone is hurt.

He deserves a long sentence but I don't think idiots will be deterred by the length of the sentence because they think they're too smart to get caught. Swatters being found guilty in court is biggest deterrent because that makes it harder for potential swatters to feel confident about their own safety.

Really you don't think almost a 20 year prison sentence won't act a deterrent for most of these idiotic punks? It's a very serious, very dangerous thing. Even when people aren't injured or killed there's serious psychological trauma. There's damage to the property that has costs. Stigma from the neighbors. On and on it goes.

Cops do 20,000 no-knock raids a year. Civilians often pay the price when they go wrong.

More and more municipalities are trying to end these para-military police units and reign this insanity in. Even leaving the danger aside the costs are prohibitive with police taking up the most tax dollars of any service provided in a municipality. It's usually on the order of 2 or 3 times higher than the next lowest thing which is generally infrastructure.

I almost bought Elite during the sale but I held off because I haven't heard much about how it is when played exclusively solo, which is how I would play it.

It's Euro Trucker in space without the scenery and a lot more distance to cover. Check out the negative reviews on Steam. The top rated ones explain really well why it's just not fun. It's just all grind.

American parents are much more afraid that their children will see penises than decapitations according to a new survey commissioned by the ratings board.

And there's your problem right there, Vern.

Case in point?

Florida man sentenced to 2½ years in prison for having sex on the beach

So now they're officially "sex offenders" to boot. Granted, no on should be schtupping in a public place but that's fucking insane!

A Painesville, Ohio teen has been sentenced to five years in a juvenile correctional facility this week for calling in multiple fake emergencies to police in several states and Canada.

A) He should have been tried as an adult.
B) Why wouldn't they move him to prison as soon as he turns 18?

Edit: Ok, here's a much better article.

Lake County teen pleads guilty to making more than 100 bomb threats, 'swatting' calls across North America

On Wednesday, the boy was sentenced to five years in juvenile detention or confinement until his 21st birthday, and then an additional 13 years in adult prison.

That's better. However he should still be going to prison at 18 IMO. Now these are the kinds of sentences that will act as a deterrent.

This is the dumbest article I've seen on Ars ever. You know why you buy a $10 phone? TO MAKE PHONE CALLS! Obviously anyone buying this as a "smart" phone with a billion needless apps and gadgets is in for a letdown aren't they? Then again they're not paying $600 are they? My cell is just over 4 years old at this point and I don't care. I'll keep it until it dies. You know why BECAUSE I USE MY PHONE FOR PHONE CALLS AND NOTHING ELSE. Jesus!

I don't throw away books, records, movies, games, etc. I sure as shit ain't deleting a game out of my library.

I regularly sell them or give them away however. And what I don't goes in the trash, I don't keep crap around I can't use. If you're never going to use it, get rid of it, is my motto.
