Gonna be a good day, gentlemen.
Slashdot used to be a safe site to visit, it never made noise when you didn't want it to, making it the go-to site for quiet, in-office news aggregation.
Not anymore. I just had to mute my laptop due to a slashdot auto-playing video advert.
Seriously, doesn't anyone give a shit about irresponsible gun owners?
neighbor Larry Simpson said of the family. "It's a shame this had to happen."
Apparently not. If this "had to happen" then apparently we have to have irresponsible gun owners, whose irresponsibilities lead to the deaths of innocent people.
Now, I don't have a whole ton of sympathy for some of the victims, but this could have been prevented. If ICANN was actually concerned about the coherence of the internet - rather than just the depth of their own bank accounts - they would have realized that selling gTLDs is a terrible idea.
He forgot to talk up another similarity between them - they both spent years running for president only to crash and burn. I'll predict now that the Kevlar Kandidate will be the first to bow out after the Iowa caucuses. It will be fun to watch, though.
Unfortunately Wisconsin will still be stuck with him for a while after, as he will still be "governor" after losing the GOP nomination.
You got admire the sack on this bimbo:
After Wisconsinites vote to amend the state constitution to change how the state supreme court's chief justice is selected, Shirley Abrahamson sues in federal court to keep her position under the old provision.
I'm old enough to remember a day when the fiction that government works for the people was semi-maintained.
I know many XP machines still chugging around peacefully without problems: No XPcalypse happened. This entirely fits my predictions.
XP was a (had become) a mature operating system. I abhor the fetish of "newer is better" that reigns in our industry.

The legal impossibility of a Christian polity in America is formally declared in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The so-called 'free speech' and 'free exercise' clauses of the First Amendment are purely secular mandates. They are a rejection of the Catholic notion of the common good, mandating that there be no restraint whatsoever on things that damage souls and ultimately destroy the State itself. They grant as lawful precisely what many popes have called unlawful: unconditional freedom of thought, of speech, of writing, and of worship -- as if these were so many rights given by nature to man. The language of the First Amendment reflects the Protestant-borne, Enlightenment-bred faith of the deistic Framers in the ability of unaided human reason to define and sustain liberty apart from Trinitarian Truth; that is, without a cooperative effort by the Church and the State. Thus, all manner of violations of natural and divine law, including the "right" to murder children in the womb, and the coming "right" to "marry" someone of the same sex, are found lurking in the secular mandates of the First Amendment. The true Church foresees these errors. Oddly enough, the Secular State itself will not be able to endure its own mandates.
In any case: Happy birthday, nettin_pure. I hope the day has been a very good one. LÃ breithe sona duit!
Now, I'm just dirt. Some may want to accuse me of feeling superior, but that, too is vanity. Other on here I could name, though. . .
I was just asked, on a comment, to prove that I was human.
