And why eggs? TheyÃ(TM)re not very sustainable
IÃ(TM)m sorry, what are the nutritional benefits of mayonnaises made with eggs?

One of the most tedious things about posting to Slashdot is that cut and paste does not work. You can waste far to much time editing even the most trivial of quotations to make sure that they are readable. A little extra help with English grammar and spelling wouldn't hurt.

What the EU court has set in motion here leads, eventually, to either a Great Firewall of Europe, or the EU getting to perform global censorship against everyone. Neither outcome seems plausible, so, what next?

Why do you think that neither outcome is plausible? Did you also think that It wasnt plausible for the U.S. government to go around seizing domain names? What do you think now that they do it? Did they totally get away with it because of your short attention span?

Maybe you didnt think it plausible that the U.K. would have set up a firewall? What do you think now that they have one? did you already forget that they have one? Did they totally get away with it because of your short attention span?

There is no reason to believe that the E.U. setting up a firewall is not plausible. There is every reason to believe that its plausible, and good reason to believe that its inevitable.

I learned to write C code by writing code, sitting in an office between two experts, one of whom later sat on the original ANSI C committee that defined the standard. I made mistakes, they told me what I did wrong, and I learned. Based on what I've seen from kids coming out of college, their instructors appear to have been people who couldn't make it as software developers.

There is a long, sordid, history of abuses associated with taxi and limousine services, tour buses and so on.

Of course there is. They can do that because government protects them from competition. In a free market, they'd have to clean up their act, or their competition would eat their lunch.

except Natalie, of Natalie's Cakes N More bakery, is African American.

I notice that a bunch of rich white conservatives though got together to support her:

The only thing faster than the rioting, is this GoFundMe account, in which she's not only got back the $20,000 needed to rebuild her bakery, but a good year's salary in the bank besides.

The reason that every major university maintains a department of mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
