Where a human driver will estimate where the road is, and blaze a new trail.
No, excluded implies that steps or barriers were put in place to prevent them from participation. That is not the case here.
It may be news to you, but in many countries the population is far more homogenous than where you may be, and in some of them, black people are few and far between. That no black volunteer students participated is not due to exclusion but because of there being none to exclude.
Can you point at just one "black participant that was removed from consideration"?

Your dad said the same thing about flying cars.
Linux certification, not Linux skill.
The two may have a correlation larger than zero, but not much larger.
Um, no. First of all, there is no indications that they excluded anyone. The study was done with volunteers, and presumably with the students they had available at the Italian university.

I'm sure Jimmy Hoffa will be happy to hear that.
Better yet, go to Ukraine. Less Putin, more cute women. Sorta like Russia-Lite.
... and soon enough, Russia proper?
If you put an infected executable on my machine and gave it a TXT file extension it's totally harmless. So it tries to open the file in notepad....no harm there.
But how do you know that it will open it in notepad? Do you examine the registry?
How do you know that an app you tried a year ago and quickly uninstalled didn't change the extension association for
It doesn't have to be a trojan you ran either - it could have been done through an IE/Flash exploit a long time ago too.
You cannot tryst the extension to be what the file actually is. But you CAN trust the extension to determine what Windows will do with it. That
