    [–] More proof we're living in a simulation LaughingVergil 36 points ago in memes

    Who programmed this? Near textures should be loaded before distant ones.

    [–] THIS is why you go on Fox and reach out to their viewers. THIS is how you win. Feel. The. BERN. Bernie2020 LaughingVergil 1 points ago in Political_Revolution

    Of course, that poll was taken before Bernie's town hall, so it has no relevance to whether or not his town hall helped him in Fox voters' eyes.

    [–] Was there a scientific reason behind the decision to take a picture of this particular black hole instead of another one ? LaughingVergil 12 points ago in askscience

    In most cases, it will present as a gassy planet, since 10x Earth's gravity is sufficient to keep most of the hydrogen on the planet. Earth had a lot more hydrogen back near it's formation, but the relatively light gravity and high early temperatures let most of the free hydrogen gas escape into space.

    Same for helium.

    [–] What's the creepiest Ask Reddit thread you have come across? LaughingVergil 6 points ago in AskReddit

    Definitely the worst "intelligent" things on the planet. Thank God for dolphins.

    Oh, wait. They're rapists too. Umm...

    One of those is a donut. A whole box is an assassination attempt.

    If I give you money, will you give me free art?

    [–] How are you really? LaughingVergil 132 points ago in AskReddit

    Actually, cancer cures lavender oil better than any form of chemo but the government made it illegal to say that. /s

    It's easier to skin once it's cooked.

    Yeah... That'd be me clicking on the wrong profile.

    I can't tell for sure - it's either r/WTF, r/science, or r/blackpeopletwitter -- unless it's one of the dozen or so others I saw him in.

    Edit: Of course, if I look at the CORRECT PERSON'S PROFILE, I might have a different opinion. Sorry about that.

    [–] What do you think of my new body suit? [F] LaughingVergil 2 points ago in gonewild

    Isn't that a little TOO modest?

    jk, that is really sexy on you.

    [–] Telstra blocks access to 4chan, 8chan, LiveLeak in Australia LaughingVergil 0 points ago in worldnews

    This is an interesting question, but it really isn't a net neutrality question.

    This video has been banned in NZ, as I understand it. Legally, it can't be shown in the country. So rather than waiting for government direction, the ISPs and telcos acted as good citizens to ensure that the law is not being violated via their infrastructure.

    Different countries behave differently on questions of good citizenship. This is how they do it in NZ. It's not necessarily what I prefer as a US citizen, but it also isn't the US. Personally, I wouldn't go out looking this up, but as long as it was legal, I don't want to ban it from my country.

    [–] Where are your Bluetooth cables? LaughingVergil -3 points ago in TalesFromRetail

    That's next to the Prop Wash, right?

    [–] 26 women rescued at Seattle massage parlors in human trafficking bust LaughingVergil 2 points ago in news

    There is a huge difference between human trafficking and simple prostitution.

    Simple prostitution is an economic choice made by a person to improve their income, possibly made in conjunction with other emotional reasons. They can stop prostitution whenever they choose to, and can reject sexual acts if they so desire.

    Human trafficking is forcing people to do a job, often based on promises of a different job. They are required to continue performing whatever job they are directed to do on threats of violence, often forced into addiction for additional control, and are not allowed to choose what things they will do. They also don't receive the money paid for their service.

    Also, human trafficking is not always about prostitution, although it usually is.

    I am against humanity trafficking, and support people in their economic choices, as long as they don't harm other people.

    Edit: no one garms anyone else.
