"Everyone trying to manipulate search results"
Yep. Don't like it? Use duckduckgo.com. Meh. A non-story.
DuckDuckGo has the same problem. Ditto Bing, Yahoo Search, and of course Amazon.
Your theory requires that the universe be infinite. No proof of that yet, and maybe never.
What is so hard to believe that we created the "god" myth? It's been done many times over the ages, so we have more proof of that than the other way around.
Otherwise, who created god?
1. Adolf Hitler
2. Osama bin Laden
3. Saddam Hussein
4. George W Bush
5. Joseph Stalin
6. Mao Zedong
7. Vladimir Lenin
8. Genghis Khan
10. Qin Shi Huang
The shuttle disasters Richard Feynman, the late Nobel laureate and CalTech physicist, saw that "bulletized" thinking contributed to the Challenger disaster, where 7 crew members died and a multi-billion dollar craft destroyed due to an O-ring failure. The big problem was that NASA management wasn't really listening to the engineers - and breaking issues up into bullets helped them do that.
The engineers who worked on the Challenger O-rings knew they weren't qualified for cold weather. But management didn't want to hear it and OK'd the launch despite the engineer's opposition.
As sometimes happens, disaster ensued.
In the 2003 Columbia shuttle disaster, Prof. Tufte dissects the PowerPoint slides that buried important information - such as volume, mass and velocity - about the large piece of foam insulation that penetrated the Columbia's heat shield. Creating useful engineering reports in PowerPoint is difficult if not impossible.
And of course, powerpoint makes you stupid
That makes one more use for it than we can find for you.
That's great because I really don't want to be "used" by you.
You can easily verify it's true - you obviously have internet access.
Kids drugged out on cold medicines don't drive cars or operate heavy equipment. Also, do you want adults taking 5-10 sick days just for colds?
Tell that to black male programmers looking for a job.
The real solution is to provide actual mentoring in a mixed-gender environment, not pre-packaged for-profit "teaching programs" that segregate the sexes. Both genders would certainly benefit from it. Follow the $$$.
I'm a geek-suit interface, a programmer, and a teacher. I like to work on open source products, services, or sites that delight and help people. I'll be seeking opportunities starting in June 2015.
"geek-suit interface"? Sounds like a Mozilla Foundation escapee. $DIETY save us from polisci graduates.
Meritocracy is soooo misogynist.
Why? It's not the meritocracy, but the underlying issues, such as lack of equal opportunity, of crappy teaching programs that reinforce stereotypes (teaching girls programming in a segregated environment, for example, which blatantly shoves "we think you can't do this as well" in both gender's faces), and implying that career choices that are typically male are more valid than others. These programs just add more damage.
We need more do-ers, not more armchair quarterbacks and sofa-seat generals telling us how to run things.
You ask quite a lot from an estrogen poisoned brain.
Hey, I resemble that remark!
No, I didn't watch the whole video - as soon as I heard the words "safe spaces", it was "here we go again
Went back after typing the above
- Out-compete them
- Troll the heck out of them (the "back at ya" option)
You hammer on a point too long, you turn potential supporters right off. This subject has been beaten to death lately, with the people doing the beating being the ones who are profiting from the "good publicity" associated with programs such as "coding for girls". (and the SJWs who last year were using the issue as a way to self-promote by creating a "fog of war.")
Nobody likes to be treated in a paternalistic fashion, and more and more this is what this has become. It reinforces the very stereotypes that have contributed to the problem in the first place. ("oh, girls can't do math, so we'll make a Barbie Girl version of a computer course").

I haven't seen predestination yet, but if it's anything like the short story it was based on, I will definitely like it. It's a real mind-bender.(hum "I'm my own grandpa
Nobody likes this hijacking crap, but it is what it is
