COMTE is not putting up with any of your bullshit.
4:23 PM yesterday COMTE commented on Cops Can Choke Black People for Free in New York City.
We make medical providers take out malpractice insurance to cover them in the event they do something detrimental to the health and well-being of their patients. Maybe we should consider requiring LEO's to take out a similar form of insurance to cover themselves - and the taxpayers who contribute to their salaries - against their engaging in actions that result in lawsuits for negligence, abuse, dereliction of duty, etc., etc.

But of course, that would require an insurer willing to issue such a policy in the first place; I can see why they might be less-than-enthusiastic about doing that, given just NYPD's penchant for generating multi-million dollar payouts on a regular basis.

3:58 PM yesterday COMTE commented on Films That Are Better Than the Books They're Adapted From.
@2/9:

Clarke actually wrote the novelization of 2001 at the same time he & Kubrick were co-writing the screenplay for the film version. That's why there are major plot differences between the two: for example, Discovery being sent to Saturn in the novel, versus to Jupiter in the film, because during production of the visual effects Kubrick was never able to recreate Saturn's rings to his satisfaction and so had to alter the script when he decided to use Jupiter instead. But, by that time Clarke had already sent the novel in to his British publisher and it was in the process of being printed, so there was no way to incorporate many of the deviations Kubrick had implemented during shooting.

Jan 21 COMTE commented on Should NASA Name a Telescope After a Dead Guy Who Persecuted Gay People In the 1950s?.
This is personally a toughie for me. On the one hand, I fully appreciate why members of a community once persecuted by Webb & his fellow bureaucrats might take issue with his being memorialized in this fashion; just as I accept the criticism by token of his non-scientific credentials. On the other hand, had it not been for Webb's administrative and D.C. insider skills, we might not have ever gotten to the moon. But, on the other-other hand, NASA during this same time period was literally crawling with ex-Nazi's (including most notably Wernher von Braun and Walter Dornberger, both of whom, had it not been for the intervention of U.S. Military Intelligence probably would have been tried for war crimes), so it's not like there weren't plenty of dirty hands to go around.
Jan 21 COMTE commented on House Republicans to American Women: Do the "Rape Victim" Thing Right or Give Birth to Your Rapist's Baby.
@6:

These are people who don't care about the message. All the GOP has to do is attach the word "liberal" to something and they'll be against it. I swear, they'd vote for their own mass-enslavement if some RW 1%er told them the taxes deducted from their paycheck was just a "scheme to force you into paying for liberal big-government programs".
Jan 21 COMTE commented on What Do You Think of Microsoft's HoloLens Augmented Reality Goggles?.
Sounds great, but will I be able to build a Mark IV exo-armor battle suit or bust people for pre-crimes using this?
Jan 19 COMTE commented on MLK Day Marchers Switch Front Pages of the Seattle Times with the Seattle Crimes, a Newspaper Dedicated to Black Lives.
@4:

Thanks for the whitesplanation. But, if you really want to get your message out to where it could do the most good, why are you commenting here on SLOG, instead of taking it directly to the Black Community? I'm sure they don't have any ideas of their own, so yours would probably be very much appreciated.
Jan 16 COMTE commented on The Boy Who Came Back to Reality: Man Admits He Didn't Go to Heaven as a Child.
The sad thing is Mr. Malarkey's confession will do absolutely nothing to change the minds of the True Believers; they'll just engage in their usual pretzel-logic exercises to rationalize how he was pressured by Socialist-Librul-Atheists to denounce his OBVIOUSLY TRUE revelations.
