It's a sad state of affairs that pretty much any post requires disclaimers that should be self-evident. Too many pedantic assholes out there on the Internet.
I have never liked the Catholic church. Still don't. That said, Pope Francis is a completely awesome guy.
You don't have to like an institution to like specific people within that institution. That's something fundies don't understand (though they are obviously not the only ones unable to understand that very important distinction).
Well, of God and Satan, only one lied to Eve. The liar wasn't Satan.
"Article IV, Section 1:
Full faith and credit shall be given in each state to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state. And the Congress may by general laws prescribe the manner in which such acts, records, and proceedings shall be proved, and the effect thereof."
Because it brings up the same counter-forces to an issue of rights. Fundamentalists are opposed to anything that is not fundamentalist, and they deserve to be legally bludgeoned with their own shoe.
Fundamentalists are diametrically opposed to equality. The law is supposed to work for them, and nobody with whom they disagree (being almost everyone but another like-minded fundamentalist). They deserve to be bludgeoned with the same club they use on others.
To be fair, seat belts on jets are more for identification of corpses than safety (though they can help in the case of explosive decompression).
Well, if they have outbreaks of mumps, it'll definitely curtail the familial spread of this sort of ignorance. I'm all for that sort of Darwinian solution.
Sure they can. Nobody has to specify the reason for asking a patron to leave.
Numerous companies have claimed it's their work, and have claimed that it's ended up in the hands of other companies who are now claiming it's their work.
If true, that's textbook plagiarism, just at a corporate level. It's also fraud, but plagiarism has always been a form of fraud.
Hand-lacing is definitely the way to go if you want good-looking cable runs. A proper fully-laced cable ladder can be awe-inspiring.
I fail completely to understand what is patronizing about TapeCutter's comment. Can you elaborate?
Trans people must all be bards.
So did you stop believing in Intel after their bugged Pentiums rolled off the line? ARM only from now on, until they screw something up?
Just because a company has a product that flopped doesn't mean they won't ever produce anything good again. While it's fine to not be excited until it's actually hit shelves, writing them off for the end of time seems a bit premature.
The second part seems to be what is happening (and it incorporates the entire first paragraph, plus the missing bits to qualify as plagiarism). They're taking IP wholesale, delivering it to another company, and that company claims it's their own work.
