Have you got a link to that post, youi made me curious.
It's not black & white. I understand that most dotters aren't very good in discussing shades of gray and which shade is still acceptable and which isn't.
Slashdot used to be a place to get away from this kind of 'discussion'. Where something with an inflammatory title like 'Draw The Pedophile' gets marked as insightful...
There are muslim nerds too...
The problem is that it draws a certain kind of crowd and the bashing soon spreads to unrelated topics.
Now I personally love a good religion bashing, but do we really want this kind of discussion on Slashdot? There's lots of other forums to discuss this kind of thing.
...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!
