...if its goal was to prevent drug usage.
It's been a rousing success for the law enforcement and prison industries though!
But I took nothing past Calculus (and have never professionally used even Trigonometry), and I'm a successful programmer, so I think math is unnecessary.
What sort of programming do you do? You can write code without doing any trig or calc, but I don't think you can do anything REALLY interesting without *some* math.
Ask for $8 million, get $1 million.
Maybe The Oatmeal should take a cue from the guy who started a $10 campaign for potato salad on Kickstarter. He seems to get a pretty good return on his requests.
Yes Slashdot, I even left your gclid in the URL so you get another ad credit for each click.
I'm a C++ programmer by trade but there's no way I'd wish that language on a student
Agreed. Its not a learning language.
I learned to program with C++, you insensitive clod! And we had to write our own stacks, heaps and vectors without using the standard library, and that's the way we liked it!
Meanhile, the end result doesn't look THAT much better than the PS3, with its measly GeForce 7900 series.
I actually bought it for my PS3, and the graphic quality seems pretty good to me. Of course, I'm more about the game play than anything else.
It's pretty fun, but a lot more driving & gunplay than I was expecting, and there's no real feeling of consequence.
It's easy to get good karma simply by catching criminals, and if you accidentally kill a bystander, it's a minor hit to your karma. I'd expect it to tank, but it doesn't. Hacking people's bank accounts seems to not have any effect, which seems like it should. It would be nice if they had offered a white hat/black hat path that you could take.
Also, if you want, it's pretty easy to level up right away by simply doing the criminal detections and hacking everyone in site in order to buy 5-star weapons from the get go. There doesn't seem to be an XP cap on the criminal investigations, and they're always worth the same.
Something seems really, really off kilter if so many of us see the federal government's law enforcement agencies as the enemy.
Floods can help to irrigate land and forest fires clear away deadfalls, but I don't think many would say the positives outweigh the negatives.
Because the law of conservation of power shows that taking power away from the government won't make the power disappear, it will just end up directly in the hands of the rich.
And that's different from the way it is now? Majority In Congress Are Millionaires
Yes, yes it was. It was an accident of circumstance and genetics.
Guess what? ABG's right, you're wrong. I'm fat, and it's my fault. I'm a victim of my own decisions, not a victim of circumstance and genetics. I drink too much pop/energy drinks, eat too much fast food, and don't exercise enough. But that's my fault, not anybody else's.
No matter what your genetics -OR- your circumstances are, you are ultimately in control of what kinds of food you shovel into your mouth and what kinds of activities you do. Making obesity a disability is only going to encourage more people to become fat so they can get on the gravy train. If you want to truly see an obesity epidemic, this is a great way to cause one.
