Bringing this out of the greys. Yeah, *that's* the problem with this. It's not momentary embarrassment for the girl (or guy) that it's done to. It's setup for future bullying. With zero way out of it because you can't disprove a negative that never happened, but the court of public high school opinion can sure as… » 2/17/15 1:03pm 2/17/15 1:03pm

Maybe the hilt is curved so his left hand is in front of the other fingers? Yeah. I'm going to go with that even though it's extremely unlikely to be true. And that even if it was, swinging the sword with a grip on a curved hilt like he's holding it would break those invisible fingers on impact with anything not… » 2/12/15 2:59pm 2/12/15 2:59pm

Wouldn't even matter if you had such a review board anyway. According to the article, Bratton also wants to get rid of the provisions DAs use to toss those useless charges out. Meaning that the charges would stick, so there *wouldn't* be any cases of checking into officers with dropped charges. » 2/05/15 7:10pm 2/05/15 7:10pm

We had that happen when I worked at Best Buy for a few years. One manager got the bright (and good!) idea to promote carpooling and alternative transportation. So every month, they said, anyone who comes in for a shift having carpooled or rode a bike would get a raffle ticket. At the end of the month there'd be a… » 2/03/15 5:14pm 2/03/15 5:14pm

Depends on the game. Quake had 3 different expansions, 2 of which were just bundled fan levels that id Software thought were cool. Which, when played, felt about like horrible DLC as anything that comes out today. » 1/28/15 12:00pm 1/28/15 12:00pm

I don't play eroge (Princess Maker or Long Live the Queen is about as close as I get), but I wouldn't mind. I've got something like 650 games on my library list as it is. *If* someone noticed Huniepop up there amongst everything else, I'd simply shrug and move on. Not sure that I'd have streaming going while… » 1/21/15 3:12pm 1/21/15 3:12pm

Enable hardware based (so rooted/JB phones can't be used to bypass it) post call GPS tracking on any phone used to dial an emergency service number and a preconfigured list of administrative numbers. That way any jackhole using a prepaid cell to do this then cuts the line will be trackable. At the very least, Police… » 1/13/15 3:28pm 1/13/15 3:28pm

Just called ATT CS yesterday due to an issue with unlocking my old iPhone. The site kept telling me that I had upgraded within the last 14 days and couldn't unlock the old phone as a result (when I had actually upgraded over 3 months ago). The main site showed my new phone. The upgrade portion of the site showed… » 1/06/15 2:18am 1/06/15 2:18am
