The point is that Wikipedia is rapidly being adopted as a first point of reference for information worldwide, and research has demonstrated that the bias in contributors has led to a bias in the actual content of the encylopedia.

Ok, I'm throughly confused. I thought Apple's terms restricted being able to transfer code in and out of an interpreter on iOS. If that's the case, how can you use this as a development environment in any reasonable way?
My mid-year 2007 iMac is on its third logic board. And I ain't the only one:
Apple replaced it twice under AppleCare, but that has run out. Seems likely it will blow again in less than a year. I highly doubt I'll be buying another Mac. I didn't pay "the Apple premium" for hardware to die this quickly, this often.
Windows 3.1 called, and it wants Program Manager back... despite the apparent name change to LaunchPad...
Negatives: I got to touch base with high school friends, It was impossible to sort though all the crap that came in, I was constantly ignoring this and that, I started unfriending people who posted too much shit to get shit from them for unfriending them. It started arguments with my family when I didn't want to friend them or I friended them and ignored them. I lost real life friends because facebook allowed me to learn more about their personalities then I ever really wanted to know. I got into real life arguments because I didn't check or respond to a facebook status.
I wish I had moderation points... the experience the parent describes is identical to mine, and the precise reason I got off Facebook. It is so much easier to tell people "I'm not on Facebook" than it was to deal with the drama.
No first person shooters? Are the scouts aware that they actually offer a merit badge in SHOOTING.
I'm the last person to depend Scouting (they've really gone off the deep end in recent years), but I should at least point out that the Rifle Shooting merit badge significantly emphasizes gun safety and appropriate use. I remember my own experiences from scout camp as a kid where they were hyper-vigilant about safety, only using guns for target practice, and so on. Again, I'm not defending Scouting in general or guns in particular, but there is a big difference between learning how to shoot targets with a rifle (with a high emphasis placed on safety and understanding of the dangers) and shooting up aliens in a first-person shooter.
