If take the Bible literally, you have to accept an enormous amount of logical contradictions and cognitive dissonance. Evolution is where they start to have a problem? Any time there's discrepancy between the Bible and common sense the answer is always "magic"(God). Why can't evolution fall under that too for these people? Would a literal interpretation of the Bible really be that much more absurd if in addition to talking snakes and magic apples that the universe is 14 billion years and simultaneously 6 thousand years old?
I've been trying to figure that out myself. So far here's what I've seen:
You can't click on 'parent' to see what that comment was a response to. So if you want to get some content on the conversation you have to keep moving your threshold until it appears.
There's quite a bit of whitespace to the right.
They seem like issues that shouldn't be too hard to resolve so I don't understand what the vitriol is all about but then again I don't understand why Slashdot wouldn't just fix it.
Feel free to point out what else is actually wrong. It's kind of hard to get a good summary of what's broke in between all the OMGG!!!!!!! FUCK BETA!!!! AHHHHH
On Comedy Central. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B.... One of the most effective designs, the wedge was also the most painfully uninteresting to watch.
Take heart. If the FAA makes kindles on takeoffs and landings legal then anything is possible.
So the American public are the enemy of the state now?
Ahh that brings back fond memories of FF13, the finest hallway simulator ever made. And it also taught me a valuable lesson, video game reviews are absolutely worthless. It has a metacritic score of 83 while most reviews admit that you have to wait 20 hours to get to the part that isn't a long corridor. Yep 20 hours of pushing up on the control stick, mashing 'A' randomly when a random encounter is hit and hearing that great banter between the characters which is like a conversation between Jar Jar Binks and the goth kids on South Park.
I don't understand the logic of people like you. What if you find out you have a serious that you can treat? Suppose you have an incurable illness but it won't hit for 60 years? 60 years is a long time in medical research. Suppose it' incurable but you can live your life in such a way as to reduce the chances of it?
Do you also drive to work with a blind fold on because other drivers make you nervous?
Sigh... I remember a time when white heterosexuals males had all the power instead of most of it.
I'm not sure if you're joking or not but just in case you aren't, we don't have a completely solid understanding of where exactly the solar system ends. That's why this comes up like this. Well that and slashdot dupes.
Nasa launches this probe, about the same year that I was born, to study Saturn and Jupiter. Everything goes beautifully so it just keeps on flying. On Valentine's day 1990 just as it's about to leave the solar system they spin the camera around to take the "family portrait". Today it exits the solar system(I know for the 12th time or whatever). Now it just wanders off into the darkness while it's reactor runs down and it's systems shut off one at a time. Who knows, in a few billion years when the sun bakes this planet the golden record might be all that's left of us. Kind of like "The Inner Light" episode of Star Trek, but with less flute.
Star Trek level technology pops up and this is where your mind goes first?
I'm thinking you're a sippy cup is half empty kind of guy.
What is slashdots obsession with the surface rt? A sale from Dell? Has there ever been a time when everything Dell offers hasn't been on sale? This is starting to seem like Slashdot's version of the royal baby.
Right because a laggy game totally justifies you to threaten to butcher the developers family and vivisect their children.
Is Eeyore the OP? Asshole employers exist therefore we should assume the worst and act like asshole employees? Much like the dating world this kind of attitude won't get you far in the business world.
It's probably a bunch of meaningless gibberish but I don't think we can afford to take any chances. I'm going to accept it as my new religion and id suggest you all do the same.
