heck look at what we did to the wolf: all those weird mutant dog shapes, sizes, and coats

We did a similar thing with the wild boar, by selectively breeding from the ones that were fatter, less aggressive, and with smaller tusks.

But if we tried till the end of time we couldn't get one to fuck a jellyfish.

Not the same thing at all.


MakerBot Lays Off 20 Percent of Its Employees 163

Jason Koebler writes MakerBot fired roughly 20 percent of its staff Friday. Figures from 2014 placed the company's ranks at 500, meaning the cuts could equate to roughly 100 employees. The orders came from new CEO Jonathan Jaglom, Motherboard was told. Employees are apparently being led out of the company's Brooklyn office by security today. "It's about 20 percent of staff," a MakerBot representative, who asked not to be identified because she had not received approval to speak to the press, told Motherboard. "Everyone suspected that something would be coming with the new CEO, and that there would be restructuring coming."

When support for XP ended I tried various flavours of Kali linux plus most of the "spice rack". KDE wouldn't let me change anything, for some unknown reason, and most of the others were pretty restrictive in one way or another. I did keep brief notes, but I can't find them right now.

In the end I went with mate; it works by default pretty much like gnome 2, which I was used to from CentOS 5 & 6.
