By that logic, we could send half of Washington D.C. up there.
Another proof that privatization isn't the catch-all cure for all ailments. There are some thing that must never ever be privatized.
The justice system is one of them.
The question is "is it here to stay".
Take Ruby on Rails. Was the craze not even half a decade ago. Everyone was on Rails. Too bad they led to the chasm and nobody bothered to build a bridge over it.
So learning a language because some startups are crazy about it isn't worth it. But what is? How can you tell whether a language "gets big" or is a tempest in a teapot?
Easy. It ain't the language, it's the people using it. It's the movers and shakers of an industry that decide what will grow and what will perish. If Bruce Schneier started writing his code snippets in Splfurt (I sincerely hope there is no such language, I just made that word up) and if people from Metasploit pick it up and code their stuff in Splfurt, Splfurt is the new big thing in IT security and every framework, scanner, tool and whatnot will have to have Splfurt plugin support and new exploit PoCs will come written in Splfurt.
It's not the language. It's the people using it.
That makes little sense. If money is what you're after, the very LAST thing you should do it try to dig into climate change. Let alone finding proof for it. If money is what you want, you should slap together some research in a field that is under less scrutiny and where there are bigger stakeholders willing to pump money your way as long as you prove them right. Genetically altered crops, and how safe they are would be a great field. Less controversy and big players with deep pockets that would certainly love to have "scientifically proven" how their stuff is great for you and your health.
You mean sanity and logic in politics? Laws that make sense and are rooted in reality instead of panic?
No, we can't have that! That could be sensible, and we can't have that in our legislative.
It's the same kind of self-censorship going on that we have here. With the difference that here you're just being inconvenienced 'til you go out of business or bend over instead of being shot, of course. So, yes, we're still "more free" than them.
But it's also a reminder that "more" is not necessarily more than "much"...
As if that was any different here. Even if dressed more nicely, the US justice system is still built on revenge.
72 virgins... sounds like a LAN party of the late 90s.
Well, 50 shades of green.
No. Of course not. Religious madness will not stop as long as religion exists.
The fortunate part of suicide missions is that there is a very small percentage of repeat offenders.
Well, when all you have to convince people that they should work for you is promises of eternal bliss after death without any kind of proof, you can't really expect nobel prize material to flock to you...
They're a bit like religion. Yes, there are some good aspects, but in total, it's more of a hassle than the benefits warrant.
If you want to wage war, do it. Go grab a gun and go to war. But do it yourself. If the assholes who want a war would have to fight it, they'd not only be far shorter, there would also be far fewer of them.
And why about the rich ones?
