    Global Agency Reconsiders `.XXX' for Porn Sites

    Giving porn its own domain would further legitimize and solidify pornography's place in society. Neither of those things are good since the massively negative effect it has on the pinnacle of human expression (AKA: Making Love). Its like setting out a room for local hooligans who vandalize...

    List Your Sexual Orientation on Xbox Live

    I can see now why Islam doesn't recognise sexual orientation; so they don't have to deal with this crap. Gone are the days of simply stoning those we didn't like or agree with to death: Shame about that... :-)

    Supernanny Takes on Violent Video Games

    Desensitizing people only means that people wont respond naturally when they are faced with a circomstance in which the natural reaction should kick in. If children are desensitized to violence, then it means they will be naturally more inclined to follow and not resist someone who is...

    Watching Porn More Acceptable Than Pirating Music

    Laugh and mock while you can, in the end; most of you who subscribe to pornography will suffer what was described and the hardest part is: You will never have the excuse to say that you were never given a fighting chance or that you weren't warned. Live, enjoy it and then when the time comes...

    Watching Porn More Acceptable Than Pirating Music

    Porn FAQ ----------- Whats wrong with looking at porn? - It is a very quick way to objectifying the most intimate human act. - Leads to increased levels of sexual unhappiness due to unrealistic expectations and copycat like behaviour. - Converts the act from the natural self-giving desire to...

    Wall Outlet With Built In Extension Cord

    Its a bad idea because it would be too expensive to design a retraction system that would be robust enough to survive for the expected lifetime of such a device. At best, it would stop fully retracting after a certain time and become a hazard and an eye sore.

    Operation Can Give Patients ‘HD’ Vision?

    Such an operation may be dangerous or ill-advised for people prone to anxiety or nerve issues. That much more information going into the old brain could cause issue.

    Sony Develops Highly Efficient Wireless Power Transfer System

    I suspect you will need a proper faraday cage for this one spinelli. When I was a kid I was told that watching TV would fry my brain... Funny how modern society likes to take things more literally

    The Tech Behind eHarmony

    That article is the silliest thing ive read all day. "Essas' philosophy is interesting because it runs so counter to the site's goals, as a self-declared maker of long-term relationships." - How the heck can you compare a product to a human relationship? Thats just outright wrong and a such a...

    Gundam Creator Says 'Video Games Are Evil'

    The guy is perfectly right, video games do assist in the ruin of this world. If we had people spending that time on being productive instead of sitting on their butts creating and taking part in pure fantasy tripe the world would learn to be much more responsible. Total waste of electricity...

    Interesting Hack: Electric Violin Built into Baseball Bat

    Definetly a home run with the crowds; i'm more interested if it would be a hit with the ladies, if you swing straight that is. Bet it would get you to first base real quick, as long as you wern't crowding the base or hitting any fouls... :P

    Guilty Verdict Overturned in MySpace Suicide Case

    Whats wrong with those wanting to deal out death and punishment with such a heavy hand? Don't you guys realize that these people will have to live with this for the rest of their life? Locking them away in a dark corner of a prison or taking away their life is just foolish and not as painful...

    US Military Tweets to Counter Taliban

    This is what you lot across the pond should of done after 911. You let the terroists win by allowing yourself to stoop to their level, but this is a way of spreading democracy in the way it was meant to be spread, through words.

    NASA Deep Space Fuel Running Out

    Rebel: Remind me when there's a world water shortage to stab you in the back with a modified water bottle... On a side note; why do we honestly need it? We should be concerned with getting this shambles of a civilization back in pace before we waste time/money on such things. There will be a...

    Electric Cars Will Kill The Planet

    I said it before and I will say it again. The amount of energy/resources used to develop/create/maintain these systems is equal to the energy potentially saved by them. The only way to "save" or to possibly reduce any issues is about usage and practice. Failing that, we could just make...

    Online Forum Jerks – A Dozen Profiled

    Teenage Nude Cell Phone Pics = Child Porn

    With mindless rants and idle acceptance of the assumption that the "internet is for porn", as expressed by many a user here in seriousness or in joke. Its no wonder that things like this happen.

    Google Earth Not Aiding Terrorists

    Anything that aids you will aid them. Pretty simple concept, google is just leveling the playing field tis all. I'd say google earth would come in handy if I wanted to shoot a few rockets at someone I didn't like, because I could see what sort of buildings/etc are around the target area...

    ATI Radeon HD 4900 Rumors

    Gamers More Likely to Drink and Ignore Family, Study Says

    Video games are an escape just like anything else which forcefully conjures up brain chemistry and does not naturally exist (Yes; drugs/alcohol in their consumable grades don't exist naturally). It would be foolish for any gamers here to deny the negative effects of their habit if its in excess.

    IT Department Busts Mayor

    People highly addicted to porn usually always end up at the child porn eventually. He was stupid to get into it in the first place; now hes completely messed up his life, what a dolt... If I was running a repair shop, I would have the lads run checks for videos/pictures that are illigal. I...
