I know, this is getting old, but this has been an ongoing discussion over on the woodworking forum and I find it bizarre to watch how many people will actually argue against personal responsibility for their own safety and for the nanny-state. I find it all absurd.
To recap, there have been a number of posts made for people who supposedly severely injured themselves with a table saw, all while doing something utterly idiotic, and instead of blaming themselves, they blame the saw. These people are morons.

This has happened on more than a dozen occasions and I just don’t get it. Why is it that when you express an opinion, especially on a very pointless subject, there are people out there who fall all over themselves to demand that your opinion must be wrong because it differs from theirs.
Are these people insane?

Has anyone else noticed this? Windows 10 will do some update or something and it will pop up in the notification bar that it has to reboot. But don’t worry, it will automatically restart the computer outside of active hours so you don’t have to do a thing!
Except it doesn’t. Ever.

There’s one thing that always bugged me about British television, it always felt cheap to me. From classic Doctor Who and even more modern BBC shows, it isn’t just production value, which is typically much lower, it’s the writing and the expectations that are much, much lower. This struck me recently as I was watching the reborn British Robot Wars, it was hard not to compare it to the American Battlebots, and unfortunately, the UK version simply doesn’t compare favorably. Here’s why, at least in my opinion.

I’m not the biggest fan of time travel stories, especially badly done time travel stories. That doesn’t mean it can’t be done right, but far too often it is done very, very wrong. I think Legends of Tomorrow is one such example, where they haven’t set up any ground rules, then they keep throwing around reasons why they can’t do what clearly and obviously they ought to be able to, because… reasons. Warning, spoilers ahead.

Well, Windows 10 is out and frankly, I’m not impressed. Of course, I wasn’t impressed with Windows 8, which is why I never bothered to upgrade, it was a complete dog, just like Millenium, another version that I never bothered with.
Microsoft, however, has been pushing people hard to sign up for the new OS, there are pop-up ads on my desktop begging me to reserve a copy but I never, ever get a new OS for at least 6 months after release, just so they can work the bugs out. In fact, unless I start to hear some really, really good things about it, I may not upgrade at all. I have something that works fine for what I need right now, why should I take a chance, even for free, on a product that may very well suck and not meet my expectations?
So here’s my reasons why I have no interest, at least for the moment, in upgrading my computer.
