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).
Statistically of course it was a tie. But elections aren't decided statistically. It takes 50% plus 1 vote to win.
Except in the US of A, where you can be President with less than 50% of the total votes, of course, due to a meaningless system (to the rest of the world, at least) of delegates.
I believe you. Basically women want to able to know they'll have someone by their side in case they get pregnant, while men just would like to impregnate as many women as possible. Even if both fully know that won't gonna happen due to birth control techniques, but we ACT like that.
That said, there are a fair amount of women that act more like the average men - as you said, sluttier. Society (including men with the exact same behaviour) usually despise them. I'd say, if we as a society didn't look down on slutty women, there would be a lot more of them.
1. Skype shouldn't have the ability to install an extension without explicit user agreement. I believe this is Mozilla's fault, it has been abused by others as well. Fix the extension installation process.
2. There shouldn't be a kill switch to an extension. It may be used in a benign form today, but tomorrow perhaps it will be used to kill an extension that allows users to see Facebook pictures, or whatever. I don't wan't that in my browser.
Basically, let me decide what I install in my browser (as well as my computer). It's simple.
At least down here in Brasil people are already obliged to leave their cellphones during the tests, just common sense really. Also, any eletronic device like PMPs, earpieces, even wristwatches.
The real problem with statistical approaches is that they don't prove one has cheated. So unless it is only used as a way to start an investigation to gather proofs - such as, contacting the cellphone operator and seeing if there was any calls to/from the cellphone during the test, AND if they can also prove the cellphone was in the test area - there is no legal way someone should be punished for being a point outside the line.
