And yes, I know that this opinion is not popular on a site as conservative as slashdot. That is why we see this as a front page story bashing the person proposing the re-examination of the second amendment.

I'm not sure Slashdot's commentators are all that conservative. I'd say they're 45% libertarian, 40% liberal, and 10% conservative.

My college geometry course was probably the most enjoyable of all my math courses, and in particular the part about non-Euclidean geometry. It was a wonderful period of growth for me, where I was forced on using rigorous logic without any hope of appealing to physical-world analogs / intuitions for my inspiration.

I wonder how many people were using laptops on their laps with a blanket or pillow or something that helps obstruct the vents on the bottom. It's fun to blame Sony but some times it really does come down to user error. Those vents on the bottom aren't there just for show...

I think it's reasonable to expect these laptops to contain thermometers and to automatically shutdown with there's a risk of fire. They're designed to be used in domestic environments with little to no training of the user.

The issue isn't his beliefs, it's his active attempt to limit the rights of others for no reason except for either religion or he thinks it's icky (I haven't heard any other excuses from anybody, but perhaps he has a different reason).

Any time you advocate the passage of a law, you're trying to force your will on others.

Your problem appears to be that you disapprove of his religion, and want him silenced. You, sir, are a bigot and a hypocrit.

Your fault -- core dumped
