There is a difference between sarcasm and dark humor.  They are not the same.

Dark Humor = Crabby3, Ren and most well known standup comedy; past and present.

Sarcasm = steak on your eye or stake in your eye.

 ...making it comical without pointing fingers is the hard part...   smiley

Wiki redirects Dark Humor to Black Comedy but it means what i thought it did.

Quote
A black comedy (or dark comedy) is a comic work that employs farce and morbid humor, which, in its simplest form, is humor that makes light of subject matter usually considered taboo.

Wiki's description of Sarcasm also means what i thought.

Quote
Sarcasm is a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter gibe or taunt.

What am i not seeing?   huh

Idea:  Invent a cell-phone-signal-blocker for a sunvisor or dashboard.  Maybe with a 10 yard radius.

This could save some lives, help prevent some road-rage and make people pull off the road to talk.   smiley

In the meantime i think i'll get one of those LED middle-finger-salutes and stick it in my back-window.
For the next asshole ambulance that stops behind me at a clogged red light.

Just make sure they don't have a dashcam if you do. Grin Their word against yours that you had no way to get out of theirs.

Two guesses who will win that debate,  ohmy Wink

Sometimes i'm at the front of the clog and i'll just creep out slowly, waiting for the cross traffic to notice.  The danger is the oblivious McMuffin stuffing, Cell Phone talking, gas guzzling T-bone traffic.  The finger is for times when i'm 6 or 8 cars back (the norm) and the EMS is melting my license plate.  No worries.   smiley

Idea: Have devices in emergency vehicles that can change red traffic lights to green... for the direction they are headed or the lane they are in.

Some cities might already have these. I think I even remember seeing one - there's a special little strange light that can flash on top of the stoplight when the override flashes. I really think I recall seeing one in action once even years ago, where all four of the regular directions were red, to reduce the mental load on the driver.



It's already been done. See here.

Now all i have to do is live long enough to see the local implementation.   Grin

Let's follow the logical outcome:

If the government can read it --> so can the terrorists --> and so can other unfriendly governments --> and if encryption is banned, then the government can't use encryption either --> so state secrets won't be very secret.

Yep. This is definitely for "homeland security" and the children! cheesy


This is exactly why I have been dying for mouser to add "upvotes" on the forum...Because I would make 1000000 accounts on DC just to upvote that comment that many times.

If upvotes is another name for kudos... they don't mean squat... anywhere.   Grin

Woody and Yogi are a couple of my favorites.  So are Buzz and Boo Boo.   Grin

Oh, and by the way...don't think that just because this is a UK thing, that other countries won't follow suit...if the UK allows it, the USA and the rest of the world would quickly follow suit.

I believe the US has ways to snoop already.  They just don't and won't admit it.  Plausible deniability still works.

RE: Beware of Freeware downloads
The title of this post is exactly what freeware authors fear -- that our software will get a bad reputation because of some bad sites.

The lesson is not to beware freeware -- it's to beware these third party download sites.
ALWAYS go to the source, the author of the software, to find the download.  NEVER trust a third party source unless it is directly linked from the author's web page.

The problem with this for the average user is Chrome.  Not sure if FF/IE do this also, i.e. this file is not one that (we think is) downloaded commonly, so you shouldn't download it.

*sigh*

Seen that so many times on both Chrome and FF...if a download hasn't has many hits, then they are labelled as "Dodgy as fuck" by the browser which will turn 80% of normal users away because they don't understand.

DC should become a freeware download site  mrgreen

 Grin

I agree..this has to be one of the more horrific titles that appeared on DC.

Me being part of the 80% of the 'normal users' ... isn't it better to be safe than sorry?  Don't believe anything you read and half of what you see.  I heard this long before the Internet earned my mistrust.  Why would any semi-informed non-geek take a chance with their machine?  They wouldn't.  When IE9 or MBAM or... warns to stay away... i do.  Mousers view is my view.  Go to the source; the author of the software.  (Just beware be aware of what you click at the authors site as well).  Grin
