... invented a product that will prevent electrical related fires ...

I think you have either:

A very large ego
A very poor understanding of electrical engineering
Poor language skills (and thus haven't described your invention well)

Regardless of which is true, all paths lead to most certain disappointment.

No, it's not. Your understanding of what "theory" mean is the problem.

Evolutionary "theory" has been proven, over, and over again. We can even demonstrate it very, very well with computer programs. We rely upon it for our daily lives when we eat meats, vegetables, grains, and fruits that have been anthropomorphically coerced to evolve to their present states. We see it happen in viruses, and fruit flies (to name but a few species) in our own very short life spans.

Sorry, there is Zero debate about whether the theory of evolution is correct - at least among people with a brain.

Comment Re:Give me a raise (Score 1) 327

The idea of getting a raise is what's wrong.

When you want to earn more money, you look for another job - internal or external - that pays more.

Pay raises are - for the vast majority - little more than cost of living increases, which is a fairly trivial thing to include in any culture like this one.

loading all this crap was tolerated by Microsoft because it was the main impetus for people buying new PCs.

Now that Android is taking over the personal OS landscape, and PC sales are dropping, MS doesn't gain as much as they used to, and now actually feels the pain from allowing this to happen, they decide to remove them.

You forgot about the recent elections where Greece elected a government who ran on an anti-austerity (pro-communist) platform, just at the time when austerity was starting to actually work for their economy. The Greek people's propensity to turn to communism whenever they have a financial problem is a bit worrisome, since it shows how clearly deluded they are with respect to how well communistic economies have (and still do) behave.
