Comment: Re:... creates two gaps in evolution (Score -1) 56

I don't think that's it. The problem starts when scientists start calling themselves "Doctors of Philosophy" - PhD. (Although many admit it stands for Piled higher and Deeper.) Most are not that good at it.
The problem ends with fairly ignorant Slashdot scientists, who disregard exhaustive declarations by the Pope that evolution and the Big Bang theory does not conflict with Catholic teaching. and instead create controversies with the 1%'ers of young earthers.
In a similar vein, but perhaps more telling is the Global warming/Climate change/Change the name-Change the argument crowd who are absolutely ignorant of the fact that another ice age is coming.
When you fanatics start talking about how to prevent another ice age, I'll get on board. Till then, try to understand that an understanding of God evolves, and has evolved, much the same as our understanding of the atom.

Sure. If your superconducting power transmission corridors consist of about 100,000 Lithium 6 atoms, your there.
The good news is that some Physicists are working on real physics, and Slashdot is reporting on it. I'll take that over the next 3 global warming filler pieces.

Comment: Pray the Lord's prayer with her (Score -1) 698

If you can get her to not hate god for taking you way too soon, that prayer will pretty much cover whatever life throws at her.
p.s. don't overburden your wife with instructions and details either. Just hug her the way that you do and tell her you love her. Sorry to be my typical contrary self, but I'm sure it might have occurred to you - dieing is the easy part.

I thought he was ranting about the people behind the counter! Yeah showing up early might be worth a try, but in any case it sounds like the guy knows full well what happened to the Apache Indians once they allowed immigrants to become pervasive. - But that was the Spanish you should be crying about. By the time the U.S got involved, It was an internationally recognized government with which the Apache had absolutely nothing to do with.
Now, somewhere there is a valid argument against attempting to wipe out entire tribes of people, but you haven't made it. Hence the subject line. The sad truth is most liberals are really good and intelligent people. They just choose to argue about the most trivial, inconsequential claptrap that makes their entire message nonsense.

Typical asshole mods are out in force today. Parent is spot on with his observation. I suggest a Systemd port over to IOS to prevent the data issue. But as far as my permanent terrible karma, I guess we'll all have to live with it since their is really no nice way to tell a clueless apple user what he is doing wrong.

Comment: The good thing about BSD. (Score 0) 105

You have to really want BSD on your computer for it to stay there, so it's in no danger of suffering from Linux's fate. Linux started out similarly, but slowly got dumbed down to the point where any corporation could get away with using it as a cheap (as in beer) alternative.
I'm not trying to offer a lame excuse for BSD, but BSD will recover from this in short order. Linux will never regain its roots as a nuts and bolts OS and it will never shed its Communist roots of forced misappropriation of copyright. Linux, quite honestly, is badly aged wine that has turned to vinegar.

Wrong. If you are poor and starving it is because you are stupid and lazy. Greed usually results in being rich and fat while having a serf mentality tends to make you Chinese. There are nuances to the rule, like Africa, Greece, and pretty much any country that is too close to the equator. Then of course, there is the great equalizer - Liberalism, which allows for stupid, starving, lazy people to sieze wealth from others. So, it's all good.

Turbo buttons are for desktops.
Looks like that nasty frequency wall is hitting us a little sooner than we planned. The marketing folks have taken to advertising turbo speeds on their processors and the average guy doesn't realize that half your cores are shutting down and your non ecc memory is getting amnesia. It seems like a lot of trouble to make the 8 cuda cores in my 8300 GS execute NOP faster than is necessary. But then again, parallel programming is hard and AMD needs a break.
Sounds like a job for Systemd.
