The fire department could be improved by privatizing it, and making it only available to those who purchase their services, sort of like fire insurance.

The public library is a waste of tax money. It hurts book publishers. If you want to learn something, pay those who worked hard to create the book. This is no better than stealing music and movies on the internet.

Public schools should be eliminated and replaced with a voucher system so kids can get a quality, Christian education. Finally kids would be allowed to pray in school and actually say the pledge of allegiance, because these atheist nut jobs don't want to say "under god". I have news for you atheists, you will all be "under god" as you are burning in hell.

Facebook Master Password Was "Chuck Norris" 319 319

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes "A Facebook employee has given a tell-all interview with some very interesting things about Facebook's internals. Especially interesting are all the things relating to Facebook privacy. Basically, you don't have any. Nearly everything you've ever done on the site is recorded into a database. While they fire employees for snooping, more than a few have done it. There's an internal system to let them log into anyone's profile, though they have to be able to defend their reason for doing so. And they used to have a master password that could log into any Facebook profile: 'Chuck Norris.' Bruce Schneier might be jealous of that one."

Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 2 vs. Early Fedora 13 Benchmarks 157 157

Given that early benchmarks of the Lucid Lynx were less than encouraging, Phoronix decided to take the latest alpha out for a spin and has set it side-by-side with an early look at Fedora 13. "Overall, there are both positive and negative performance changes for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 2 in relation to Ubuntu 9.10. Most of the negative regressions are attributed to the EXT4 file-system losing some of its performance charm. With using a pre-alpha snapshot of Fedora 13 and the benchmark results just being provided for reference purposes, we will hold off on looking into greater detail at this next Red Hat Linux update until it matures."
