An interesting read even though I have to admit I understand but half of it. What I didn't get is if there's a treatment path without medicine, something like the proper food, excercise regime, etc. -- because I find it hard to believe that the proper conditions cannot be created by the proper lifestyle.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Some films don't end, they just stop.
We don't need internet trolls. The natural polarising effect of the internet echo chamber works. Just go to any fringe news site, ideally a political one - far-left or far-right, works either way - and look at the comments.
My favorite right now, on the subject of same-sex marriage: "The plan is to depopulate the world by 2050 to about 1 billion. Encouraging same sex attraction and indoctrinating the young to accept such as normal behaviour is just one of the many methods being used to accomplish this."
The difference between the Internet on April Fool's Day and on other days is on the one it is packed with false stories full of pandering nonsense written by charlatans to gain page views, and on the other it is the first day of April.
There's a very socially-conservative American news site I read for entertainment - it's quite funny. They are currently running stories like "EPA boss under fire for admitting Keystone will not destroy mankind," "Amid accusations of 'discrimination,' Indiana may toss out religious freedom," and "Obama continues 'game of revenge' on Israel" It's not satire, just politically biased. The comments are the funniest part - a lot of conspiracy theorists there, most of them insisting that Obama is secretly a Muslim or that the 'gay agenda' is a plot to legalise raping children.
It's not the same joke. It's ten jokes all following the same theme.
I don't think we are in disagreement. I explained that accountability is a good thing in practice, but that it creates serious problems with corruption when the organisation supposed to enforce accountability is itsself unaccountable and subject to both corruption and political bias.
Works historically, too. You don't have to compare just cultures of today, but cultures of the past too. There were periods in both England and America where 'the right thing' was to kill witches. They were not only intrinsically evil, they were a threat to the welfare of others and of the community.
Most people's perception of how airships should behave from holes is wrong, and it's based on their experience with party balloons. The reason for the differences are:
* Party balloons are pressurized - the skin is stretched taught. The skin on airships are loose.
* Skin area (and thus leak rate) scales proportional to the radius squared, while the volume scales proportional to the radius cubed. Airships are many, many orders of magnitude larger than party balloons. Consequently the rate in which gas can leak out of a hope is drastically lower.
Even large holes in airships don't take them down quickly. Even a moderate sized airship can generally continue flying to its destination and then fix the damage and refill there.
Have any police departments actually been prosecuted though? I rather doubt it.
DTRT isn't universal at all. If it seems universal, then you are not considering a broad enough array of cultures.
There's nothing wrong with an accountability system in principle - we want politicians to follow the law and avoid corruption, after all. The problem is bias in enforcement. If you get the NSA to spy on politicians, they are sure to find more than a few who are taking bribes (Or as we put it today, violating what few rules on campaign finance remain). That much is fine - but you can also expect them to take a much longer, harder look at any politicians who propose cutting the NSA budget, and deliberately not investigating too hard those that seek to increase the agency's influence. The personal political views of the agency management would also be an influence on who gets the most enforcement effort.
Get him to delete anything personal, because chances are his co-workers are going to be asking for access to his files and emails so they can continue whatever work he was in the middle of.
