I will repeat, nothing in this "study" can logically be attributed to age discrimination.

There's a term for that....Willful Blindness.

Normally i would just end it there but I'm bored.

Not bored. Trolling. The sole purpose of H1B is to lower prevailing wages. Combine that with Google's preference for 20 somethings and you're out of excuses.

Friday night, go out to bars and talk up a bunch of girls. Tell them you work at McDonalds and that your goal for the next ten years is to pay off your car. Your used car that you bought with 100,000 miles on it.

Then, on Saturday night, go out to a different set of bars and talk up an equal number of girls. Tell them you work at Google and your ten year goal is to have your five bedroom house paid in full.

Then let us know what the response rate is.

In the US, vaccinations are available to everybody and general health and supportive care is so good that your risk of dying from measles is negligible even if you don't get vaccinated.

Because being rendered deaf or blind is no big deal as long as you don't die? How about the anti-vax trolls piss up a rope instead.

Android has been announced before the iPhone came out.

Moving the goalpost from announcement to release in less than ten words, impressive.

The iPhone was an evolution

A mere evolution that merely drove the largest players in the phone market, Nokia and Blackberry, into single digits within just a few years.

You're missing the point.

No, he understood the Hatorade just fine.

The point is that rushed first-gen devices with a long list of crippling "features" is Apple SOP.

Hateboi tautology. Maybe they should just do what Google does, and call their product "beta" for the better part of a decade, and all "sins" are forgiven.

yes, he's a nonviolent person, but we don't know that

Of course we knew that. If he had nefarious intentions, he wouldn't have warned your beloved authorities in advance or flown a 200 lbs capacity gyrocopter.

It's time to put away the plastic sheets and stop wetting the bed on command for the national insecurity state, the greatest pork project in the history of the world. Your couch is more likely to kill you than a terrorist, so stop hiding under the bed and throwing your rights away anytime someone knocks on the door.

he could have chosen a better way to make his point. but he'll be prosecuted, and the corruption will continue

Like drop those same letters in a mailbox? Those were 100 to 1 against telecom immunity....D's and R's DGAF. This was a harmless stunt that got him worldwide press - doubt you could come up with something that would have got him more attention, as one man, peacefully.
