Comment How about spreading knowledge of how to murder? (Score 3, Interesting) 244

Crime shows and heist films are educating bank robbers and future murderers, teaching them how to plan bank robberies and how to hide murders. They even show the process of how the police typically catch other bank robbers and murderers, further educating them on how to avoid police detection. The entire cast of CSI needs to report to the local precinct ASAP.

Comment Re:At $363/month per person, not sustainable (Score 1) 397

I've seen worse. Knew a guy who'd hit up Starbucks on the way to work in the morning, then again at morning break, lunch, afternoon and usually one or 2 in the evening. Always with an extra shot or two added. This is EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK.

I figured out he had to be spending $600-900 a month on his insane coffee habit.

Comment Homebrew makes a lot of sense (Score 1) 79

At first I wasn't sure if it was the OS X package manager or the Vagrant VM... okay it's the package manager.

That makes a LOT of sense. Many of those package install scripts are handled by someone dedicated to that project who wants it working on their Mac. So there's hundreds of different build scripts with a large variety of project maintainers. In this case they'd probably be better off separating the build script authors from the main project authors, that would probably drop the track factor of Homebrew by a lot. Being able to make a build script for top for example doesn't mean you can maintain the homebrew project itself.
