I agree, that is what im getting at, we need to expose the immune sysem to "aliens" to train it.
So by not living in a hyper clean environment as kids and by developing a proper immune system that is capable of fighting off allergies, bacteria and viruses we might be healthier as adults! This is radical, I can't believe no one put two and two together until now. That isn't to say you should live in a biohazard but honestly it's pretty obvious that we need to introduce children the real world so they can develop a proper immune system to being with.
1) Ban guns or at least implement proper gun control.
The problem is that most people won't see this for the what the issue actually is. The issue is that a religious symbol was place on public property and hence violated several key ideals, one of which is the separation between church and state. That alone isn't a big issue as long as you allow the any religious or non religious group to display a symbol representing their viewpoints and their beliefs. For instance if you show the 10 commandments ( most of which are pretty bad over all rules ) then fairly you must also allow atheists, The FSM, Satanists, The Church of Heavy Metal or etc... to display what they want. This isn't a case about which religion is right or even if religion makes sense, this is purely a case of unfair representation that must be equalized or taken away. After all if you flip this entire deal around and allow the Satanists to put a display and disallow Christians, what would happen?
Unity might be the worst graphical interface I've ever used, it is a bad excuse at best for a high school level GUI project. Now Canonical want's to go further and decide to write a control centre? If history is any guide to how this will turn out, the control centre will be almost unusable, it will have a layout that will make you scratch your head and wonder who laid it out and overall it make more Ubuntu users jump over to gnome 3.
Open Source took off with RMS in the 80's.
There is 100% no link between autism and vaccinations, every single study that has been done has proven this. The one study which falsely promoted evidence that autism is linked to vaccinations was shot down in review and retracted.
If you're a parent who is anti vaccination and your child ends up getting infected with a disease they could of easily fought off with a vaccination then I think you should go to jail for abuse. 99% of the parents who deicde they know better or are better qualifed to make the vaccination choice are simple unaware and dangerous morons who think they should be allowed to play doctor and medical expert based on incorrect reports and very poor evidence. If you play doctor professionally and don't have license you can go to jail, so why should we not subject these parents to the same and worse? If you don't vaccinate and your child gets sick because of not being vaccinated then you abused the child and hence should suffer for that.
If the original authors didn't put that feature in and never intended to then just show the different in code revisions from version a -> b. Once the court sees the authors didn't do it they are ( or should be ) off the hook.
The desktop isn't dead, the desktop is very much alive and well. Try doing FPGA design / VHDL design without a laptop or a desktop. Try doing intensive computing in Matlab / Octave without a desktop / laptop. I can keep going but there is no point, the desktop / laptop is very much needed in many cases, let alone servers.
My girl friend is Asian and she agrees that North America has an education system that is about as "good" as toilet paper. By the time my girl friend was in grade 3 she was doing grade 8 level north american math. She was only allowed to eat dinner when all her homework was done and she had HOURS of homework a night. She didn't get a lot of time off school and if her marks weren't in the high 80's and 90's she got punished. When she came to Canada in grade 4 she was shocked. She told me that until grade 10 she wasn't even challenged and frankly that even high school was easier then her grade 3. So don't be surprised.
I put an ad on craigslist or Kijiji and just wait. I've had emails that literally say "I haven't gone to college or university but I know how code in these 10 languages and I've written these projects", the reply is usually, "Awesome! come on in for an interview". Sometimes I use job boards and frequently word of mouth, employee X knows Y who knows Z, well lets get Z in here and see how I like there work.
Actually it would of turned out better, it's so far been the biggest failure in website history.
This after Oracle came out explaining how Open Source is not only dangerous but a cancer to development. I'm so glad Oracle has shown with out a shadow of a doubt that Open Source software leads to broken systems, I would hate to not know this, good work Oracle, from now on I'll always pick the closed source guys
That is a hilarious episode! However it does bring up a good point, grades and marks are toilet paper in general. I've seen programmers who are on the honour roll, who have great theoretical code, follow all "best" practices and at the end of the day suck at programming. I've had to throw out code at the end of the day because it wasn't unusable. I had one guy to come to me with no post secondary schooling and simply asked for a job, I asked him to sit down for a day and write code! At the end of the day his code was awesome, better then the post secondary guys. I have 1/3 of my staff with out a college / university education that are wicked programmers and that frankly out program the college / university guys.
