"I just don't 'get' the ambiguous sexuality of apple products."
What? Oh, I get it. It's a joke. OK!
"...when they depreciated OpenSSL..."
I don't think you can claim OpenSSL as a write off on your tax form.
"...they can't touch me?"
Yes, they can. But only from left to right.
'However disgusting, "revenge porn" ought to remain legal...'
It's not about free speech. It's about not respecting someone else's privacy. It's about breaking an implicit trust.
Tell you what, if it's OK to post the pictures I say it should be mandatory that the real name of the person submitting them should be posted right alongside the image, in order that women everywhere could know who to avoid.
'Ah, because the metric for "spherieness" isn't at all subjective.'
That's true. It's not really subjective. Here's a neat little illustration/calculator to help you with the concept.
"...affects your biological health and circadian rhythm"

The future of airship transport looks pretty interesting to me:
"The point being that ditching gender stereotypes in mass media can have a very big financial payoff."
It's just too bad if that's what it takes to change attitudes. No one should have to give a "logical" reason to show people that they shouldn't behave like jackasses. It's about being a decent human being.
And where does this misogyny come from anyway? The fathers being bad roles models? Mainstream media perpetuating it? Do misogynists put their mothers and sisters in the same category when they're talking about women and girls in a negative way?
Ooops. I'm going to have to get a smaller hat.
"Natural is not a synonym for healthy."
Unless, of course, you are the tiger.
"He puts an entire nation in jeopardy."
Actually, he put an entire nation on the alert to very real abuses by our government.
I've heard the NSA complain that a journalist is not qualified to determine what is and what is not too sensitive for publication. However, I would like to submit that the NSA and like institutions are not qualified to determine what is in the best interests of a democracy.
