The funny part is how much more earned media/bandwidth consumption the Cruz campaign got out of casting a "woman of ill repute" for the video than if the advertisement had simply run.
Where the Cruz campaign failed to go with it is casting a transgender immigrant minority Muslim recovering addict; all of your bunched panties on the Left would have been even more preposterous than usual. Which is saying a lot indeed.

Comment Less than zero is a valid timestamp (Score 0) 153

The thing that bothers me about all of the summaries I've read, is that a timestamp less than zero (which is Jan 1 1970) is still valid - otherwise how would you represent dates before 1970???

I don't know what is going on but a timestamp being merely "less than zero" seems alone to not be a problem, it's how some other part of the system is dealing with this timestamp. Perhaps someone somewhere in the system frameworks shifted from a timestamp (which is really a double internally in iOS) to some kind of large unsigned int?
