Also, easier to buy Sudafed (or Meth) from drug dealers than to get Sudafed from a pharmacy.
You should have no trouble getting a job that requires 5 years of Swift experience or 25 years of Java experience then.
What is lost in the article is that a Mathematics PhD or at least information science as part of a CS or EE course, is probably the ACTUAL skill that google would like. You can pick up Matlab if you have been using other tools to do the function, but it's a shitload harder to pick up the math and relevant algorithms, research and hive knowledge.
"Civilization" means being able to make death threats from the comfort of mom's basement, without fear of any serious retribution. Yes it's illegal and I have seen someone charged with a crime for it, but it ended up being a slap on the wrist. I'm not sure how "civilized" that is really.
Linus uses death threats?
I have seen him wish harm/death upon certain hardware designers at ARM (http://lkml.iu.edu//hypermail/linux/kernel/1309.1/00905.html).
That was probably a little over the top, although the problem he was referring to is infuriating.
I think there's a difference between using strong language on a person who demonstrably done something you don't agree with, versus death threats, continuous abuse, stalking or directing said vitriol against large groups people only related by race, gender, etc.
The wild west had a lot of advantages over "civilization", you did not have to suffer fools.
Hopefully (probably?) what he means is that the only taxes are on consumption.
The problem is still there. If you make $30k/yr almost all of your income goes to consumption. If you make $500k/yr, a good amount of your income is going to various forms of investment, savings and trust funds. You aren't "consuming". You will surely consume more, and more of that is luxury, but you hit a point where the incremental return on luxury items starts to wash compared to long term security.
Really? I think they lost far less than that.
They may have been amongst the highest paying in their discipline. I'm confident that $5k would have been a drop in the bucket for some of these guys.
This sort of thing needs to be punished as heavily as possible, if it is not, it will be seen as in the best fiduciary interests of shareholders TO do it, and risk being found out.
Hey now, market forces only work for the rich. They're not supposed to work for their employees!
There goes my massive MMO spider silk horde. Leave it to science to devalue my investments.

Now to be honest that was something I yanked out of my ass, but I googled it and it's a real damn thing.
No, they're pretty consistent that they just don't want people to affect animals
I'd have more sympathy for them if they were PETP - People for the Ethical Treatment of People. A cause I can get behind is the "leave me the fuck alone" cause.
The standards are pretty low... you may as well.
Oh, and I am Young Earth Creationist.
In that case I think you confused your IQ with your SAT score?
This is a good thing. Pretty soon there will be no FBI. The office may exist, but they won't be able to STAFF it.
