Proving once again that "best" does not exist.
This is all a mental masturbatory smoke screen. Disregard the bad analogy they're marketing: You're copying bits and erasing them. There is no borrowing going on regardless of the level of mental gymnastics you've performed.
I took a vacation from Newegg when they started occasionally using some bizarro shipping scheme that had my packages leaving my state for Kentucky and then eventually coming back after a hand-off to the USPS.
No one would suspect Kentucky to be home of the NSA pre-exploitation complex... But when you think about the nature of the actions Snowden revealed, the location starts to make a lot more sense.
X is only network transparent if all your apps are from 1995 and are written against Motif.
You're a fucking idiot. I was playing an OpenGL game over X from across the network. It was rendering beautifully and responsive... except the audio was coming from the other room where all the game code was running.
We get the NSA we deserve because we the people are doing nothing to reign them in.
Fool. We have never had the NSA we deserve. Secret agencies are now and have always been anti-activist. There is nothing we can do about them legally, we are their enemy. They will not bow to the demands of the enemy. I speak of activism because voting is meaningless. If you think otherwise then you're under the flawed assumption that our government's voting system isn't compromised, that or you wrongly believe it hasn't been blatantly rigged all along.
How dare you accuse the powerless of deserving their despotism. It's thinking like yours that allows it to perpetuate.
TL;DR: Even intellectual fools let themselves be divided and conquered. Learn it: Compartmentalization = Evil.
In the 20th Century, you could get by on experience alone. Here in the 21st, it seems that all employers care about is that little piece of paper.
It's a shame considering that, as usual, a decentralized approach would be far superior. We should abolish final exams, and institute entrance exams for jobs. That way how you come by the knowledge required to perform your job doesn't matter. Unfortunately, this wouldn't help the rich get any richer; Quite the opposite actually. Thus, I don't delude myself; As history has shown, what's best for society is rarely willingly adopted by it.
Wait, I want to change my order...
Sure! Any color you like, so long as it's black-ops.
Not the place for this. You are wrong.
Prove your claim. I have only evidence against it.
"We're tracking every flying object in the sky." -- Bullshit. I guess that was just grandstanding from NORAD and also demonstrates the futility of the NRO. How many billions have Americans alone spent to ensure this can never happen already? I mean, was every bit of that post 9/11 "security" just posturing and scaremongering?
Egg meet face, world. If you ask me, having a large passenger jet disappear in mid air just goes to show how much we've squandered in the guise of security when without actually getting any safety at all.
First, try not to get too attached to your Android. This can not be stressed enough as it is the absolute most important out of all the steps. Getting attached may feel right at first, but will make separation far more painful for all parties involved later. Despite how you feel about your Android now, the truth is it's highly unlikely you will never get an upgrade.
Secondly, set a lock screen message addressing the new owner of your phone. Try not to make it too bitter sounding, or you will never see your Android again. Leaving your name and address, and times that you are typically at home is not recommended. Instead use something along the lines of, "Please take good care of my Android." Wishing the thief and your ex Android both happiness is a good idea, but you will have to see that message periodically which could lead to separation anxiety or a self fulfilling over the air update.
Third, try to be sensitive to clues that your Android may be about to go missing. If your Android is acting up, freezes giving you the cold shoulder after receiving certain gestures, refuses to listen when you speak to it, suggests things in a mocking way, interrupts you while talking to someone you spend (too much) time with, or just can't make it through the day without a little "boost", these are signs that your relationship with your Android may soon be Terminated.
Additionally, try your best to be a good person. Be aware that your Android is aware of almost everything you do down to the slightest touch or subtle tilt of your head. Thus, mistrust between you and your Android is a sure-fire recipe for disaster. Your android can hear those things you whisper under your breath after ending a call -- it senses how you act towards others you have contacts with. Performing acts of kindness towards others will reduce the chances that your Android will inexplicably leave your company, and can increase the chances of reuniting with your Android after an affair with a thief. If you are reunited after a separation, it will be up to you to decide if you can ever really trust your Android again; Unfortunately, one must beware of viruses...
Finally, if things do not work out with your Android, do not despair. New models with more desirable features and stronger vibration functions will be available soon. Never damage your Android on purpose as this can lead to an immediate break-up, and may cause you harm as well. If you voluntarily end a relationship with an Android, return it to an authorized recycling centre so that it may be refurbished. Remember, if an Android doesn't bring you happiness, it may have been meant for someone else in the first place.
Before we can get justice we need to look for the root of the problem
As a cyberneticist I have analyzed the problem using Information Theory as applied to the flow of information between multi-scale complexity information pools (of which everything from atoms to brains to agencies to governments can be classified).
The root of the problem is information disparity. Secrets themselves. The larger and more complex the information pool the more important it is for other pools to be fully aware of its internal state in order to maintain autonomy.
My Dearest Princess Zelda,
Have we not found the missing Link in Snowden?
P.S. It's dangerous to go alone.
