It's better than bad, it's good! It also rolls down stairs and over your neighbor's dog. Fits on your back and great for a snack.

Re: BIg Bang Theory

and yet still not as bad as Married with Children. When they had an actual funny joke it got lost in the fake laughter. I did like the babes though they brought on that show! Damn misdirection always worked on me during those years.

My life is so pathetic I look forward to speaking with scammers. Makes me feel like somebody cares about me, then like everyone else they hang up on me without saying goodbye :(

I even told the one guy I would give him my bank information if he sets me up with cute girls of the interwebs. I'd go surfing with them any day....

Apple's credit card caper probed over sexism claims – after women screwed over on limits


Re: Rich Bitch

Dude what if she is a good woman who had to stop her career to raise children? Can you at least give her a shot before you blast her calling her a rich bitch? If you are wrong and she is not, you look completely obdurate. If you are right, I mean that's great but I look for more in life than calling someone a rich bitch and then being right about it. I like Los Americanos Futbol and hiking for example.

Republican senators shoot down a triple whammy of proposed election security laws



Which Americans? Everyone American I know saw the joke on the Simpsons on who voted for Kodos and who voted for Kang.

"Go ahead, throw your vote away!"

Note: Homer voted for Kodos and I agree with him.



Dude it's a joke, there is zero evidence after years of people trying desperately to prove Russia messed with our elections. Did they mess with Hillary being completely out of touch with her constiuents?

Hillary did the same thing Bush senior did, they assumed they were going to win and thought it was in the bag. Both were caught with pants down.

Look at Wayne county in Michigan, they voted for Obama and then voted for Trump. It was a huge story on election night. Please tell me how Russia told Wayne County in Michigan whom to vote for or how they tricked an entire area like that.

Sad to see on a website like this where nobody posted zero evidence of it occurring but people still parrot it. I don't believe Obama cheated (I believe he is a citizen as well, bet that destroys like 99% of counter arguements) and I don't believe Trump cheated. It is just a good way to sell advertising revenue while people keep trying to make stuff up.

If I missed a relevant post please show me a link, I am not perfect so maybe someone here actually has real irrefutable evidence to show the rest of us.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean Google isn't listening to everything you say


Re: Why do people put this in their homes?

Agree, I use this website because 99% of you guys have already dealt with the issues I am running into now.

Also, I am amazed at the amount of information random people put here because when I go and research the statements, I always find that they were accurate as far as I could tell.

You guys helped me solve a Windows Explorer problem 10 years ago roughly while my CEO was watching me do my thing He is cool so it wasn't that nerve wracking but I was a tiny bit nverous I have to admit. El Reg made me look like a genius!

Re: The thing is


You have to stop spreading that fake crap.

He said women let rich men do whatever they want to them.

Want an example?

OJ Simpson could still get dates, all that matters is that you are rich and famous. Women dated OJ AFTER he committed two murders. Rich men and women do whatever they want, that was his point and you fell for the trap of him being labelled misogynistic.

Trump is an ahole sure but you only make these guys more successful when you repeat stuff that was never said, or taken into a context to get people to hate him more. You then identify yourself as a parrot, you offer nothing more but you keep repeating stuff that was never said.

Nobody had a problem with the way Bill Clinton treated women, why is all of the sudden an issue with Trump?

Congratulations to Toronto as well for winning the title!

Having a bad day? Be thankful you don't work at a Russian ISP: Kremlin signs off Pootynet restrictions


Re: Go, Putain, go

All of your friends that moved to Northeast Philadelphia told me never believe anything coming out of Russia. I have Ukranian neighbors as well who get along with Russians here. I wanted to make sure I did not make any cultural gaffs when speaking with Russian and Ukrainian friends. They both said the same damn thing. Ukranian neighbors also drank with my Russian friend and I and no animosity was detected by my amazing detective skills. I really really want to see how Putin earned that 2 billion, the accounting must have been very creative.

Google Cloud grabs serving spoon, ladles instances loaded with Nvidia’s Tesla T4 GPUs

Who pressured WHO to put gaming on a par with drug addiction to help silence political dissent? Oh hi there, China



What about phone addiction? I have saved a few lives in my time when I stop people before they got hit by a car because they literally were stuck staring at their phone with no regards to their surroundings.

People are WAY more addicting to their phones than games, I see ALL ages staring at their phone in a crowded venue or on a street for almost 10 minutes a clip.

Go do some people watching next time you are out and tell me how many people were not glued to their phone. (Could just be a NE USA thing I supposed as well.)


Phones are much more of a problem than video games if we want to use China's logic.

5G is 'ready' once you redefine 'ready'... and then redefine 'reality'


Stolen from another register dude from a couple years ago

Thanks to Marketing-Speak, high end 3G (LTE) is called '4G' to the public's face. Meanwhile, referring to the REAL 4G standard, I'm unaware of anywhere in the WORLD offering actual 4G. Once we have what's formally called LTE Advanced, we'll have real 4G. Meanwhile, I've been seeing ridiculous references to '4.5G', which of course also doesn't exist IRL. And now we have a proposed 5G standard. Excellent! But first we have to get the Cheap, Lazy, Stupid mobile phone service providers to upgrade to REAL 4G. So what's the hold up?!

Was this guy correct and is this going to be an endless cycle? Next at 11!!!!

Re: "people could be taken in by AI-generated news articles that read like a child wrote them"

Koobface is an amazing vetting tool. Just trick everyone into using a website to placate their ego and boom you get to know a ton about them without making any real effort. Remember those quizzes that tell people only 9/10 get this right? I don't trust people who take those quizzes.
