So, in the year 2014, long after the subversion of source control, and submissive UIs all jokes about man/woman or more/less are still so hot that a core process of a unix like system needs to be called "useless"? Erm, I typoed: uselessd ...
Lucky that I no longer have to convince managers to use 'subversion' (eeeek, what that?) but can propose git.

There are plenty of disk drive makers left. Not only in names but also in actual distinct companies.
However you are right with your conclusion.
Founding a new disk drive company right now is pointless, you only can get into that by buying some.
On the other hand: drivers are soon dead anyway, except for NAS and SAN ... but that as well is only a question of a few more years.

The guys who modded this funny did not read to the end.

Form is the most important thing if you would do something 'really' interesting. And bottom line such a form is most of the time considered really beautiful. A sword comes to mind, or a bow, or a simple arrow even. Or a hang glider ...

The idea that stuff only needs to work, has to be cheap and can otherwise be as awkward to use and as ugly to handle is utter nonsense.

As well you can say: your dick has no eyes (sorry girls, I assume you have a similar proverb)

So I mixed up the two countries over the discussion ...
Sorry, but that was not the point.
The point was 'button less'.
But I figured now that misinterpreted 'button less'. I assumed the shirt was 'open at the front' and lacked (for whatever reason) buttons to close it. And the parents post indicated the cravat or tie was the solution to it.
However I figured now that with 'button less' a shirt was meant, that is closed at the front and does not need buttons :D
However that makes the original sentence not more clear. On the other hand, I would not know how to describe such a shirt properly in english.
Interesting: Croatia is catholic and not orthodox, besides it is slavic and surrounded by orthodox countries and Romania is orthodox besides it is surrounded by catholic countries?

ROFL did you actually read the link you posted?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M...
Yes, the first few lines claim, it is a fertilizer.
But when it comes to the specifics: "Mineral dust is mainly constituted of the oxides (SiO2, Al2O3, FeO, Fe2O3, CaO, and others) and carbonates (CaCO3, MgCO3) that constitute the Earth's crust." it is obvious: it is not a fertilizer.
No idea why wikipedia writers insist on that or why 'dumb asses' like you ( muhuhua +4 informative) repeat that nonsense.
A source of minerals? Perhaps. Fertilizers? Nope.
Regions like the Amazonas are closed systems anyway ... except for smoke from forest fires not much escapes the system. So already the claim 'important fertilizers for e.g the Amazonas' region is nonsense in itself, regardless from where the fertilizers might come.

My point is (and sorry, that I missed the 'they have not to hear') stuff like this is not happening anyway.
So your 'advice' is rather mood.
No one who lives in a sane world and has 'sane' mind is 'proposing' anything to a woman he never has talked to before.
Ofc it is perfectly fine to become acquainted to a girl, e.g at the bar in the hotel, and ask her in the elevator what 'her plans' are. And ofc it might be more 'secure' to ask her in the hotel reception on the way to the elevator instead.
Nevertheless your first two posts I answered to look completely 'out of context'.

And your further answers - half accusing me to be a moldster - make your previous posts not look better!

For a non native english speaker a 'license' and a 'permit' is the exact same thing.
But be my guest and explain me the difference.

What you explain about CH, I don't see any difference to DE ... so my standpoint has not changed. In fact you emphasize that I was right :) you get 'buying' and 'carrying' 'permits' easy in the US and not so easy, if at all in CH. That was the point ... if you want to call it permit when I call it license ... sorry, no idea what the difference should be.

I mean seriously!
For fuck sake read what you have posted two posts back.
What has my answer to do with the bullshit you wrote in the post parent to this?
Who in his sane mind asks a random women he never has met before about 'sex'?
So what is your nonsense post/accusion about?

You have serious problems! Don't interpret bullshit into other peoples posts!

You did suggest that.
Do you think walking up to strange women when they are alone with no prospect of immediate help around and propositioning them for sex is polite?
Why would anyone do that, oh yes ... certainly in your experience this happens.
Something 'like' this happened to my GF, she wrecked his face. A drunk fucktard lingering in her street and 'waiting for girls' passing by. The other girls inly yelled 'fuck your self'.

A year later for other reasons she told that a random police officer, who immediately asked for a description and encouraged her to call the police next time: regardless how she handled the situation.

Anyway .. got distracted :) perhaps I misunderstood your previous post.

I have never been in a country where it would not be considered unbelievable rude if you asked a girl in front of witnesses to your room.
I mean, if I would do that in certain European countries or regions and the brother or father is around (assuming I'm not already married to the girl in question) that would be close to a death sentence aka suicide.
In what retarded world do you live that you consider to ask a girl in public: "you wanna fuck me?" is okey?
Ah, well, you only wanted to ask her to come (and stay?) to your room ... drinking a coffee, sorry, my misinterpretation.
