...how is this news?
P'haps they wanna fix it till it's broke...
That's not how you do online marketing. Try this:
The first 26 pages of Neal Stephenson's new bestseller were *leaked* to the internet!
That's work much better...
Create a watertight storage safe with - say - a Raspberry Pi and a bunch of USB disks. Connect it with power and ethernet wiring. Bury it six feet deep in your crawl space. Hope that the Raspberry SD card doesn't get corrupted.
It's really quite simple. Everything that distinguishes a man from a woman and a woman from a man is sexualized. Women have breasts, men don't so breasts are sexualized and men tend to prefer larger breasts (within reason).
Men tend to be taller than women so tallness has become part of the male sexualization. It is considered more attractive (again, within reason).
When with a few tiny changes you open up whole avenues of functionality that hadn't been conceived before. Sometimes you get that and it gives me immense pleasure. It opens up potential your code didn't have earlier.
Am I babbling or does that ring a bell for anyone?
There's another one:
A cargo plane, and the crew were able to overcome the suicidal maniac.
He could, but it's quite possibly harder to stab someone you know while looking him in the eye than it is to lock a door and point the nose of the plane down. Who knows what a suicidal person thinks?
You're missing the point. The value in the lottery ticket is that it opens up possibilities for daydreaming. You just made that daydream even more entertaining. Ever seen the TV series Fargo? Guy finds a bag of money, builds a grocery imperium and gets visited by a crook. Seems like you could even make lots of money by turning it into a TV series!
I thought of that decades ago. In fact I even thought one step further. I figure I could also fantasize about finding a bag full of money on the street. Or finding a lottery ticket that would win the lottery. That's about as unlikely as buying a ticket and winning the lottery and it's free!
Gladstone Gander does it all the time.
They push the buttons of everyone, hence the lack of reaction from Marine Le Pen. The Le Pen family has been the target of their cartoons more than anyone. So has the catholic church (hardly a minority).
This is freedom of speech paired with freedom of religion *and* freedom from persecution rolled in one issue.
Your Obama cartoon is just plain old racism.
"He could perhaps be proud of coming out if it took some courage or there was some barrier to overcome,"
Don't underestimate how hard it is for a child to come out with their homosexuality. I imagine every homosexual (even in my famously enlightened country - Holland) goes through a seriously difficult phase of self acceptation.
I recently had a high school reunion. I noticed that all the gay kids had not come out until after they left school. They must have known they were gay, but they all kept it quiet. Puberty is hard enough as it is, having to come to terms with your own being different must be pretty hard. Probably reason enough to turn your shame into pride.
Pride, also in the face of all those who still feel you should be ashamed.
Great, you just invented hoverbait!
So it's a hype?
Who would have thought that!
