Reddit tranny upset 23andMe shows Y chromosome submitted by mralexson to funny

StrangeThingsAfoot 0 points 61 points (+61|-0) ago

A few years ago, I would have agreed, but we're in a world where everyone caters to them if they say "hi I'm trans". And they've learned that if anything makes them uncomfortable, they can just complain to change it. Because discomfort is now "violence".

That being said, I can't imagine how anyone would take a DNA test and expect fake results. So this one is Poe's.

Who do you think are the main people behind Voat DDoSers? submitted by killer7 to AskVoat

StrangeThingsAfoot 2 points 50 points (+52|-2) ago

I think that was a false target. If you were DDoSing a site, would you DDoS the specific info you wanted removed (thereby telling the site admin what you wanted removed), or would you find something unrelated (maybe something that implicated a different religion...)?

The particular post didn't really have much damning information in it anyway.

If there were really people down there, that would be incredibly disrespectful.

Yellow vests knock out 60% of all speed cameras in France submitted by Skyrock to news

StrangeThingsAfoot 17 points -14 points (+3|-17) ago

The idea is if people know there is a camera there, they will be less likely to speed, and once someone has gotten a ticket (even by mail), they will be less likely to speed again. The concept is sound. Also having cameras is a lot cheaper and less invasive than paying cops to drive around with nothing better to do than give people speeding tickets.

If we accept that speeding is a public safety hazard, and that a fine is an acceptable punishment, I don't see the problem with cameras doing the enforcement instead of a live officer.

Juden Peterstein's living quarters. submitted by Splooge to funny

StrangeThingsAfoot 9 points -9 points (+0|-9) ago

I don't love Juden Peterson, but we really shouldn't stoop as low as photoshops. Or if we do, at least get the lighting right.
