Of course we'll have to repackage them in red, white, and blue so that our more jingoistic (read: Southern) citizens can stomach the idea. I'd happily trade the "free" market for subsidized education and healthcare, and at this point will even more gladly trade our system of crony capitalism for anything else. Even bronie capitalism.

This is pretty much why Linux has never broken through on the desktop. Who wants to develop for a system that people like you use? I've got a mortgage to pay and I'd prefer not to starve to death. I'd rather develop on Windows and get paid actual money than develop for ungrateful Marxist pricks like you on Linux. Enjoy your lentil soup.

4/10 for effort, 1/10 for content. Sorry, but I expect far better trolling.

Hell, most of my servers spend so much time in their boot process initializing RAID controllers, mem testing, etc. that the performance gain with systemd vs init is really not going to make that much of a difference. Add to that the fact that most of us have servers whose uptimes are measured in years, boot performance is pretty much the last thing I give a damn about.

Most Custiomer service calls says they are recording the conversation for training purpose (Surprise! talk on the phone now needs training), So when they do so It is usually implied that you can. In any case, the point is not to use the recording to sue them (so in case it may not be legally obtained) but to release it to public to drive their PR to the ground.

It's their customer service that's driving their PR to the ground, the recorded calls are just a vehicle for that.

I love going out with my climate scientist friends! We hit the town at about 9:00, pop open the Dom Perignon and hit the clubs. We usually roll up in a stretch Hummer while they scream out the window "We're climatoligists, bitches!" At the strip club they'll usually make it precipitate with hundred dollar bills, much to the enjoyment of the strippers. After a few well-meaning puns (let me show you my hockey stick graph), we'll head back to the champagne room for cocaine and asthma inhalers. These scientists are rolling in so much money, fame, and 'tang that it's not surprising that 97% of them are so out of it that they reach a consensus on climate change.
