I'm stumpted to find any more than one meaning for "fuck you" that would ever be used in conversation. But that is besides the point. I can say anything in a disrespectful tone. In that case, it is the tone that is the issue, not the words. Working in Southern California, just about everyone will ask about where you are from because the vast majority of people I have worked with are from somewhere else, whether in the country or the world.

Interesting. In the rural united States, you are most likely going to get a specially trained nurse when a helicopter is called to the scene, but not otherwise. That nurse can treat a lot more than cardiac arrest when they are in the air, such as draining fluid buildup in the chest cavity from severe trauma.

I did read the article and I don't see where the researchers accounted for socio-economic background. Additionaly, they point to "nine general groups of traits that were all highly hereditary" but fail to mention what traits these are. This is not listed in the abstract either.

Also why is it that WP should do more to appeal to females but FB doesn't need to do more to appeal to males?

Uhh, because 64/36 female/male user ratio isn't that far out of line. That aside, I'm sure there are top men in Facebook working to pull in a greater number of men while not pushing out their female user base. Top men.

Wikimedia Foundation doesn't neccessarily need to do more to appeal to women and they are not suggesting that they do. But it is certainly in their interest to understand why such an extreme gap exists.

If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.
