Comment: Re:alogrithms aren't racist (Score 1) 350 350

We agree to disagree,your ignoring my point by making one that could never be done as apposed to one that can or could be done. YOU might not know how that doesn't mean someone else cant or wouldn't. btw i don't believe as i said the algorithm that was talked about in the article was racist as scientist say we have evolved from apes. I don't agree with that either but that's another thing all together.

Algorithms are comprised only of math?This says no

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a self-contained step-by-step set of operations to be performed. Algorithms exist that perform calculation, data processing, and automated reasoning.

if im mistake please explain why.

I think life will be long gone or very few alive. I'm no scientist but i would think getting closer to the sun by a hundred thousand miles would be more then enough to over heat the earth. Im sure someone here is smart enough to figure just how much it needs to expand im betting not very much at all. At any rate i will be long dead unless an asteroid hits before i die lol

In this day and age there are more houses empty of Fathers because of how easy it is to get a divorce. There is no healthy sexuality at the age of 17 and below.

Comment: The gaming industry (Score 1) 223 223

The gaming industry should have to face fines for releasing games this badly coded. And its very clear the gamers are a bunch of cowards, afraid to miss out on a preorder special gun that is no more powerful they any in the game released on opening day. But even still thats not the problem the problem is fix it later created by the whole software industry, Linux included. No one has clean hands IMO for this problem but for gamers as serious as they take themselves to not stick together is ..sad and funny. that's my 3 cents worth

Comment: How can we block the share button (Score 2) 112 112

How can we block the share button i use Ublock Ive tried may different options to block every social button i am not a member of twitter,fartboox so they are 10000%useless to me. Ublock is ..a pain. but the only AB i have found that lets me decide what i want to block by right click block. Ad blocker plus once allowed it now that feature is gone. and no learning to be a web coder isn't in the books ever lol Is there a site i can go to to learn how and what to block?

and yes i do use duckduckgo its not as good as google but anything past the first page on all the search engines is useless garbage IMO and for my search that's the only opinion that matters :}
