So your advice is that you should place more trust in code that you can't audit a single line of, just because it'd be hard to audit all FOSS code.

That's a pretty amusing substitute for logic, but you're welcome to apply it for yourself if you like.

Be sure to get back to us and let us know how that's worked out for you.

All the things that everyone knows are true, yet science won't dare to tread there.

You wrapped up rumour, hearsay, and gossip into one tidy package.

And like most people who prattle such nonsense as yours, you obviously think of "science" as some nebulous agency that does stuff, whereas it's nothing of the sort—science is a method whereby we find out stuff.

You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch'.

That doesn't sound like going down a rabbit hole. It sounds more like waking up.

If you need to download it first, you're waiting for a half hour or more to get a good copy.

You might be waiting half an hour--for me it's usually more like 5 minutes.

You might think streaming is a good solution for your shitty Internet, but it's really not.

The people who actually want streaming are the media cartels, so they can keep you from having a copy so they can charge you rent forever and ever, amen.

What I'm taking away from this is that if Powell/Cheney/Kissinger did something bad, that's ok because they were good. But if Hil does it, it's bad because she's bad.

Makes perfect sense to me, only... why am I left feeling like I've a pair of shoes hanging from my ears and my feet are stuck in a wooly hat?
