Can I find a decent software engineering job there?
Then both Bernie and Hillary could both claim to have won . . . and lost . . . at the same time. Now looking over at the Republican corner . . . I think that the folks who have lost, are the American citizens.
Wouldn't it be cool, if some guy managed to crawl out of the Washington political poop, and declare himself as "socially liberal, fiscally conservative", and get people emotionally enthused about this election? The way I see it now, folks are just looking for the "least worse candidate".
That is a rather insightful thought . . . I have seen some code, and thought, "I wouldn't serve this to starving buzzards!"
Some folks shouldn't try to cook . . . and they shouldn't try to program either.
I work for a large international IT services provider. At the beginning of each year, we are required to take an IT security course. One of the topics, is "no private email servers!". I'll take a wild guess, and think that US government employees need to do the same thing. But I'll further guess, that Hilliary thinks that she is too important, for these rules apply to her, and she let one of her underlings take the course for her.
Except... turns out she lied.
No . . . really . . . she's always been a resident of New York . . . even though she never lived there . . . until the prominent Democrat Senator Patrick Moynihan retired, and there was a Democrat seat open in the Senate.
In New York, you could run a house plant on the election platform . . . and it would get elected.
Well, let's see how the US general electorate decides . . . but with Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump on the ballot . . . of course . . . America loses . . .
"news for nerds"
I think this site needs more porn . . . "Nudes for Nerds!" . . .
All joking aside, this site has incredible value. I don't come here to read the news; I can do that elsewhere. I come here to read what other nerds think about the news. You could post a story about Kim Kardashian's butt . . . one Slashdotter will post that he is working on his Ph.D. on celebrity posterior geometry. Another seismic expert will compare Kim's crack to the San Andreas fault.
The real value here, is from all these folks, who take their time to post their wisdom. When I buy anything . . . the first thing that I do, is to google through Slashdot. Slashdotters have bought everything, tried everything, and are not afraid to say, "This is cool!" or "This sucks!"
I wish you the best of luck with your new endeavor, and hope that the Slashdot community will continue to produce valuable information on the Internet!
Having said that, I would be really interested in their explanation of how it can be noon in Hawaii at the same time as it's the middle of the night in Paris.
That's easy it's a combination of turtles with mirrors and sun blocker discs on their backs . . .
. . . all the way down.
Obviously, science needs more diversity.
I guess this makes Niel deGrasse Tyson a racist.
Now that might attract an audience . . . two drones trying to knock each other out of the sky.
Sponsored by DARPA . . .
. . . they call it a "business plan" .
How likely are you to die today?
"Today is the last day of your life . . . so far."
The 95% of the world living outside of the USA have absolutely no recourse to your Congress.
That is not true . . . US Congress will accept bribes from anyone in the world, independent of where they live.
