Start using a democratic system where every vote is equal, it's called Proportional Representation and works very well.

It would also be the end of the two party systems.

he referred to all the black people in the room as 'African Americans'.

Stupidity is not reserved for one nation alone.

Years ago I was in Florida, and was chatting with the hotel clerk when an English guy came in and started chatting as well. After a few moments the clerk said "I can't tell you two apart", meaning our accents.

The english guy and I just look at each other and burst out laughing, due to the fact that I'm white and the he was black.

The 68008 was discontinued 20 years ago, so this isn't really all that useful even as an educational exercise. Why not pick a current breadboardable, cheap microprocessor and get Linux to run on that? That way, other people can benefit.

Why even bother with hardware. Why not just emulate it?

But then again .. why emulate it when you can buy time on a virtual system?

Then again why do all that when you could just be watching TV?
