. . so people cant wear skirts anymore? Sharia Law is over there . . .
What about windy days? Can we outlaw them, too.
And escalators. They often give people an eyeful of thigh (and not all of it is pretty, ew!)
Many upskirts will show less than a miniskirt or booty shorts. How will that factor in to the new law? Will the length of the skirt be taken into account?
So many questions....
DirectX11 was back ported to Vista.
The reason DirectX 10/11 was not backported to XP was not because of mean old bad microsoft but rather WinXP is such an obsolete archaic OS that is fundamentally different.
Weird that the system requirements for DX11 suddenly changed later on - to allow XP!
Some people might think that it was mean old bad microsoft after all...that the "obsolete archaic OS" thing was just a lie.
Don't forget that DX11.1 mysteriously started working on Windows XP when Microsoft decided it could:
( System requirements: Windows XP Service Pack 2 )
It was necessary evil to be able to publish new video driver model architecture with neat features, get over it.
People managed to make DX10 run on XP without official support from MS/NVIDIA/AMD: https://www.google.es/search?q...
Later on...guess what? Microsoft decided to allow DX11 to run as well: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us...
There's no relation between an operating system and the feature set exposed by the video driver. It's just another API.
LOL! You must be new here....
Every release of DirectX has been used as a tool to try to get people to upgrade their version of Windows. This will be no different.
Sometimes it's better to move.
The age of consent is pretty far down the list of things that need fixing. If the age of consent is keeping you awake at night then western society as a whole must be absolutely intolerable.
I suspect the real number is a secret but you can safely bet he owns quite a few of them....
Different species can often interbreed:
The offspring aren't always sterile, either. Mules are usually sterile but ligers can often be fertile: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
Bengal cats are an artificially created crossbreed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
The original ("rather stupid") answer assumed the parent was simply a troll who was trying a variant of the creationist's "Irreducible complexity" argument.
There are religions where one of the central tenets is that the beliefs must adapt to advances in science.
They really do it, too. It's not just lip service.
What if the children are homosexuals and their parents believe that all homosexuals should be stoned to death?
Who should we think of, the children or the parents? Who is the future?
Is it acceptable for a third party to tell the kids that homosexuality is part of being human and that their parents are religious bigots?
If Apple can't plan for a common contingency like this in their security model, then they shouldn't choose to be in control of other people's property.
They HAVE planned for it (duh!)
Their plan was to require a court order, ie. a judge looks at their paperwork and signs off on it as "genuine".
No, you're the only one who thinks those numbers are based on some form of objective criteria rather than made up by men wearing silly hats
I object. Some of those hats are quite nice.
What's makes that difference from 17 years, 364 days of age to 18 years of age so magical that it changes the rules completely 180 degrees?
That's why I said "a bit arbitrary" above.
In some cultures a boy has to do something worthy for his people to consider him a man. Others have special rites of passage that a boy has to complete (hunt/kill a wildebeest). Street gangs have their initiation ceremonies (kill a member of another gang). etc.
In our society we chose "number of days since they popped out of their mother". Not the best way? I agree. Don't like it? Go and join one of those others.
