No, they will not adjust their standards, which are set by societal norms and unlikely to shift. The half with a low libido will just stop screwing around altogether, and the half with a strong libido will all go to the same fewer dudes over and over again.

Comment: Indiana is so bad it's compare do Saudi Arabia? (Score 1) 653 653

Do we really want to hold our own states to the same standard as Saudi Arabia? Does Tim Cook, Apple, or anybody in the US have the same influence in both areas?

Fiorina is definitely going to run. She's pandering to the dumbest set of Republican voters.

...and then test it. By all means, question everything, but back it up with relevent, scientifically sound data.

Eventually your data may help form a scientific consensus. That's how global warming came to be understood. The opposing view has been totally unable to form a gain such support.

(By the way, no, "global cooling," was never a real thing, before somebody ham-handedly posts a link about it. There are fake magazine covers out there, etc., but ignore the deniers.)

“There is no such thing as a 'self-made' man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.” -- George Matthew Adams

Get something out there on GitHub. The best interviews will ask you to go through and explain each part. You even get the option of saying, "oh...crap, I have no idea what I was thinking there, I could've done it better," and you GET points (b/c everyone in the room probably already saw that).

Do you even realize how much your inferiority complex is showing here? I don't know whether to down vote, or reply and point it out. You need a whole new perspective on life, as essentially nothing you've said in your post is commensurate with reality. Your place is cheap because few people want to live there. Your company is a no-name because they're probably not doing anything important. That's the most likely circumstance anyway - you probably have not found a diamond in the rough, and your portrayal of what others find to be the more desirable alternative just moves you further into a deficit.

Geeks are thinkers, by nature. We'll all think off in a nutty direction sometimes, but it's always good to see what's on a few peoples minds.

Slashdot is somewhat international, and we get to moderate posts. It's like reading through the comments portions of an article without all nonsense drowning out the relevant viewpoints.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
