Comment Phew, I was worried there for a second. (Score 5, Insightful) 161

Thank God my Credit Card numbers weren't breached, because those are impossible to cancel and replace. I'm so thankful it was only my Passport number, Driver's License number, social security number, full legal name, birth date, and address that were stolen, because those are a snap to cancel and replace.

Comment Clarification? (Score 1) 106

Is the bug in TrueCrypt, or is the bug in Windows? It seems to me that Windows should be able to stop a limited user from gaining administrative privileges, regardless of the software that is being used to attempt it.

Why is it the responsibility of TrueCrypt to prevent user rights elevation in Windows? It thought that was Windows' responsibility.

Comment What About Nutrition? (Score 5, Insightful) 122

The article (or shall I say shameless advertisement) goes out of its way to talk about how much they shower the growing plants with "nutrients," but says not one iota about the nutritional content of the final product and how it compares to organic or conventionally grown produce.

Except "being necessary ... militia ..." is not an operative clause, it is a prefatory clause. The operative clause is "the right of the people ... shall not be infringed."

Prefatory clauses are used to give some reasoning or approach, but not a binding condition.

You could rearrange the second amendment in today's parlance as such:

"The Right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed for reasons including, but not limited to, that a functioning and ready militia is necessary to the security of a free state."

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
