Thank God someone posted a car analogy! Now it's all so clear!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Is this true?
Yes it's true. This man has no dick.
Why, I very nearly dropped my monocle when I heard that the rascals might be cahoots! Perhaps they have some sort of network (a system of tubes, perhaps?) that allows them to share their diabolical plans! Fiendishly clever!
We must safeguard our computing engines! I say we must find these these rogues and hang them from the highest scaffold in the land!
the thought of a heart, fresh from my enemy's chest, still beating in my fist while I enjoy the first bytes.
While listening to the lamentations of their women?
Would that be called the "O Face" gesture?
Interesting. The site is legit, but.... you would think McAfee would provide these links from a page on their main mcafee.com domain, instead of vil.nai.com (although whois confirms that McAfee does indeed own this domain).
Also, I find it disturbing that McAfee doesn't provide a SSL certificate for this page to confirm the site's identity. Seems to me that this page would be a high-profile target for hijacking, especially considering that most people will blindly download and run the executables that it contains.
Also Soylent Green. And hot dogs.
Questionable accuracy and stilted, archaic language aside, can an employer legally require a (potential) employee to take this kind of test?
Many of the questions dwell on the applicant's state of health ("I have had no difficulty in starting or holding my bowel movement"), sexuality ("I am very strongly attracted by members of my own sex") or religious beliefs ("Everything is turning out just like the prophets of the Bible said it would"). Seems to me that this thing is a veritable minefield of discrimination lawsuits.
You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
Granted, this kind of thing has been done before, but that doesn't diminish the fact that this is simply a really cool project, particularly for a group of high school kids.
They have a flickr page with more photos of the balloon and the results (note that much of the captions are in Spanish). I'm impressed; in fact, I'd love to try this myself.
That's brilliant - it will stop them dead in their tracks! Clearly nobody would EVER think of simply fashioning a point on a blunt knife using a hacksaw or a file.
Just awesome. Seems like I never have mod points when I really need them.
If it looks, waddles and quacks like a duck...
So, logically, it's made of wood.
And, therefore, a witch.
The issue is that this ignorant view may be perpetuated in America. I have never heard anyone in Europe utter such crap.
Then let me introduce you to another American invention: Google
Despite the past eight years, stupidity is still alive and well in places other than America.
After all, the American Idol TV show did originate in Britain.
