Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

Why is more than half of the right-click context menu disabled when exploring a compressed file in Windows Explorer!? That makes me confused and angry!

Probably because that half is not really actually something you can do with compressed files or something along those lines...

Getting back into Runescape, found out that about a year ago Jagex removed a bunch of fun gambling stuff and made anything of the sort bannable.
Badly justified too. If you were really thinking of the children you wouldn't encourage them to spend hours a day sat playing the game you made.

Kids always gamble no matter what (including bets and games like Truth or Dare). Depending on the magnitude of their actions, they gamble with their lives all the time. Youtube has a plethora of such gambles.

Don't bother, it went to shit years ago. There was a slight uptick in hope when they got rid of that idiotic Wilderness arena and brought back nearly full-map PvP, but that was just a ruse drawing people in before it became even worse.

People used to joke about it being the MMO people played when they were in junior high, but it is now in truth. Of course JaGex have always been sorta-moneygrubbing shitlords, but it really went sour when the Gowen brothers left, and any trace of that old spirit of self-depreciation and absurdity have disappeared along with whatever used to pass for a community.

I've got good memories, though. I spent more time chatting with people in that game than in any MMO before or since; I recall plenty of times where four or five complete strangers would talk for hours in that one little dungeon-hill spot that was good for archers to farm blue dragons at. Castle Wars was the bomb, too.

Silly itnet, that's not a kids thing, it's an everyone thing, more or less. Gambling behavior defiiiinitely doesn't trend off with age, it just changes forms (at best).

This article: Sex assault reporting on Canadian campuses worryingly low, say experts.
Far as I can tell, they're saying that there's no way there aren't more sexual assaults happening on university campuses than are being reported by comparing those rates with the rates of the cities surrounding them and other things.
Uh.
Judging from what I know about 20something year olds, they're onto something.

Apparently I've had Bay12 at 90% zoom for most of the time I've been on it, and when I turn it to 100% it makes my head hurt.

I think the idea is that the report is low, which is bad, while the actual sex assaults are high, which is doubly bad.

I have it at 110% normally and 100% has the same effect for me.
130% here. I can read it at 100% without particular ill effect, but... it's annoying, and I don't have to. Non-forum reading is generally at around 180%. Why read small print when you can read big?

Given how crowded some universities are... it isn't that unlikely.

All the sexual assaults at my school, for example, occur during the night classes in isolated sections of the school

I think the idea is that the report is low, which is bad, while the actual sex assaults are high, which is doubly bad.

Well that is what they are inferring. They don't know the actual rate of sexual assaults there. They are basically going "well, there is no way there are that few sexual assaults".

According to Law and Order Special Victims unit. Universities will often handle sexual assaults behind closed doors. Often shielding the person who did them from harm. But these are law shows that came after... "Law and Order" where things like "The Law" and "Reality" are bendable as far as the show is concerned. (Now that the original Law and Order was a bastion of accuracy)

Yeah, titling fail. I ran into that article a week or so ago and had the same WTF for a minute before understanding it. That stuff is a real problem, but the way it was phrased makes it sound weird.

Don't really see how it's a fail. The title clearly states "reporting".

My WTF is that people actually change the zoom levels on their internet browsers. Like literally the only times I use the zoom feature is to zoom in/out on pictures and if I'm browsing on my phone with it's tiny screen.
