The blatant crypto racism is exhibited in most of these posts... Guess what, your reaction is what proves the racism, not your quasi logical statements explaining your reaction...
No one bother to read the opposing views, or the reason why this was brought it.. just an immediate.. " Those women and brownies always want to be included... reverse racism"
To quote a SPEAKER that realized this after the fact
So I started asking around. I thought of all the prominent non-white-dude Ruby conference speakers I could in the space of a couple minutes. Just people who came easily to mind, nobody too obscure. I wanted to know if they had been invited to be part of that initial group of 15, and had said no.
Sandi Metz. Bryan Liles. Reg Braithwaite. Angela Harms. Sarah Mei. Katrina Owen (Norway). Keavy McMinn (Scotland). None of these people were invited to be part of the initial line-up. In fact, I couldn’t find a single woman or minority Rubyist who had been invited to be part of that 15.
Oh.. that changes the picture... doesn't it?
This whole "the world isnt racist anymore so just get over it" is a bunch of BULLSHIT. It's been barely a generation in most areas.. heck, we have people in the south holding to grudges and behaviors 6-9 generations deep. But someone, racist behaviour is supposed to be completely expunged in one generation, and well, any mention of it just shows reverse racism... bleh.. most of the above posters disgust me.
I grew up on a farm, we never had to wear helmets even when on the motor bikes, I mostly wore one seeing it was bought for me, I never had a serious accident and nothing that a helmet would have protected me against.
Eventually I moved to the city and ended up riding through northern and central Sydney. I was always quite conservative and always wore a helmet and a UV vest. Mainly wore a helmet to avoid the fine of not wearing one.
I made a dash through a an amber light, the bus driver coming the other way turning right didn't see me and clipped me. I went down pretty quick. I remember thinking this is really going to suck slamming my head into the road... Oh the sweet, sweet feeling of having your head slam into the ground wearing a helmet. There is no better feeling in the world!!! I then jumped up, got off the road and started patting things down to see what was broken/bleeding. A slightly grazed cheek, knee and hand, no concussion and back riding to work in 10 mins. Someone saw it all, chased down the bus and we exchanged details, hence why it took 10 mins to go back riding.
I really like our mandatory helmet laws. I don't care so much for our our healthcare and compulsory third party car insurance... yet
Oh nice.. another ( i'm hollier than though morality ) comment

I can keep going.
go with your BS somewhere else..
I couldn't agree more. The current economic system isn't ready for what will ( not would ) happen when the service and manufacturing industries are fully automated. ( which is my main gripe against free market types )
Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Toys R Us have all cut the price of the Wii from $200 to $170. Previous rumors were that the announcement of a price cut would not come until May 15, making today's premature by a month. According to the initial rumors, however, Nintendo plans to officially reduce the price of the Wii to $150, $20 less than the recent reductions by vendors.
The price cuts could indicate that Nintendo is moving towards a new console, or at least a new iteration of the Wii."

If you steal your own wallet back from a pickpocket, you're not going to jail.
Tell that to O.J. Simpson... he's in jail for trying to steal back his own stuff
"uh... HELL NO!!!!"
You are not zapping my #@&$ with sperm death ray!
The iphone still rules the "total experience dept". Even after trying two android phones, I came back running.
Not just that but think about it for a second
- carried out repairs to the Millennium Falcon, did he have a electrical engineering degree?

Surely this makes Chewy equal to or of high intelligence then a Genius.
Sure communication skills are lacking but I've met humans who are unable to put sentence together as well as Chewy could.
He also had the solution, "use a bigger hammer" or "hit it harder" down pat which has helped me out numerous times!
