I'm just saying scalping and decapitation are two totally different things. I want the correct verb.
The dude is dead. The news reports are not saying he bled to detach from being scalped. They are reporting he was decapitated. Decapitation is not limited to slicing through the cervical vertebrae. In this case it sounds like the top of his head was taken off the way some people slice off the top of a soft boiled egg. The Smoking Gun website will probably publish the autopsy report if you really want the medical technical terms

I know he's dead and me questioning MSM oft-sensationalised headlines isn't changing it or negating the tragedy, but decapitation is the head separating from the body. He was scalped, which is horrific.

Some fools camped out in front of it so they could be the first customers. I'll let the rabid folks go first and probably check it out sometime next week.

Well then... getting the top of your head lopped off and "scalping" are two different things, also.

But hey, no need to blow your top over it!

True. As a wordsmith, I know the emotional power of certain words and I hate the evil MSM and just want an accurate portrayal of this poor man's (hopefully quick) death.

Wrong. Decapitation is separating the entire head from the body, not just a portion. It is the equivalent of beheading.

It's bad enough I have to get a new phone every year and a half, I don't want to have to buy a new computer every three.

But I have to admit, my new computer is awesomer, and cheaper!, than the last one from five years ago.

That reminds me, could someone give me six hundred dollars please?

Who says you have to? I've got a phone that came out in 2011 and it does everything I need it to.

Again, who says you have to. The computer I'm typing on is over 3 years old and it replaced one that was probably 5 years old at the time.

If replacing all my sheit every time a new upgrade comes out, just for the sake of having all new stuff, is what it takes to be geek of the year, definitely give the trophy to someone else. Cars. Electronics. Whatever. I like to ride it till it ain't getting the job done no more.
