no link because code in it actually looks like ass and is hard to read

Agree. Modifying the 'i' look like an 'l' was a neat trick. I would never have thought of doing that.

Still, it looks like it was designed for people who think white-on-black is a good color scheme for text. You can't expect too much.

PS: And how would "low contrast" be seen as a good thing? Beats me.

I think what is missing from most parents is the follow through


I hear constant streams of "if you don't do XXXX then I'm going to YYYY" from parents but they never actually seem to do it. If they actually do try to follow up the kid will scream for 0.0005 seconds and the parent instantly gets all apologetic.

Don't be afraid to let kids scream a couple of times. Totally ignore them when they do it. They'll soon figure out it doesn't work.

Pet hate #2 is parents who constantly ask kids what they want to do today, what they want to eat, or whatever. You don't ask kids what they want, you tell them. You put whatever it is everybody else is eating on a plate in front of them and tell them to eat it. If they don't eat it, they go hungry.

Be the boss.

The People really don't want one either. People don't really want to know what is being done in their name by politicians, or else they would be pissed off. Plausible deniability. It is how many Germans ignored the Nazis.

To know, would require a person of any amount of conscience to act.

Racist Xenophobic conversations would be something I would engage in, not because I was either. It is more interesting to troll the stupid idiots spewing crap, than it is listening to conversations about LeBron or Kardashians.

I could have a shit ton of fun with that.

The CM Micromax Deal was dreadfully short sighted. While they gained Micromax, they pissed off a whole bunch of people. I would be on ColorOS if it weren't for a missing single feature I use regularly, single button screenshot. If they add that, I'll be off CM for good.

You're absolutely not getting the point.

Hey everyone, I have an ASHLEY MADISON ACCOUNT - discretion needed.

It isn't the bank cards, those can be canceled, it isn't the other details, it is the fact that you're on a website looking to cheat or find cheaters. It says a lot about your morals. We don't have to impose our morals on anyone. I don't trust people searching for cheating lovers.
