Scorpius (when did the name change?) is quite visible from Europe. It's easy to spot as it's the only constellation that actually looks like what it's supposed to be.
Dogfight? Did we get transported back to 1942?
I got in just long enough to see #lahar is trending.
The thing is, you find that as nations get more free and accepting of men and women to do what they please, gender parity isn't something that develops. In fact, some careers stratify even more. This isn't a bad thing, this is because men and women tend to have different interests. When things are fair and equal and you can pursue the career you wish, what they wish on average is different. That doesn't mean there aren't outliers, of course, but that you will find some careers are "gendered" in that one gender prefers them more than the other.
We shouldn't try and stop that. We should just make sure that the reason someone chooses a career is because they want it, not because they have been prevented from entering another field and this is their second choice, and also not because they were pressured in to it. We want people to be truly free to do what they desire, without artificial barriers to that.
There are always limits to what they can take. Depending on the state you live in various assets are protected, and only so much of your income can be taken for payment. They don't get to just take everything you own and demand all your money. You will find it is usually things like your primary residence, primary vehicle, and so on are protected, and the limit of monthly payment is a certain percentage of after tax income.
So while a big judgement sucks and can effect you in various ways, it isn't a life ending "you are forever in debt and can never keep a dollar" event.
That's an interesting take on the idea. There may be, almost certainly is an "optimal" point of view where the balance of future carrying cost, productive potential, experience and future work expectancy.
If you value experience the highest, then older people are the most valuable. Children have highest carrying cost, least experience, but the highest adaptability and future earning potential.
Now you could take a *market* approach to valuing lives by holding an auction to see how much people will contribute to save a life. In that case I have no doubt that children would win hands down. In a sense we do this already; charities which rescue children have a distinct advantage over those that target adults or the elderly.
StartSSL offers completely free-of-cost certificates that are widely recognized by browsers to individuals and non-commercial sites.
Sure, as long as you don't try to change the key on your pre-heartbleed webserver. They charge money for that, as far as I understand it.
StartSSL.com gives free Class1 and is preinstalled in every modern browser
Great. And what does somebody do if they have a pre-heartbleed certificate from startssl? Last time I checked they charged to revoke a certificate, and as I understand it they won't let you issue a new certificate for a domain you already have one for. Thus, I imagine that MANY startssl sites are using potentially-compromised private keys.
Wrong. One of these is happenstance. One of them is not.
I see titties nearly every night and morning. If that's warping me in some horrid fashion, I say "Bring it on".
I actually dug out my old Model M last year. Aside from the fact that the rubber.insulation had flaked off the keyboard cord, it still worked perfectly. And it was every bit as good as I remembered it being for typing, and if I replace the cord it will last forever.
There's only one problem with the thing: it's so damn loud. Every damn keypress is accompanied by a loud "POK!" Forget about annoying other people, *I* was annoyed. Years of typing on pretty good Thinkpad "scissor switch" keyboards had accustomed me to a low, pleasant sussuration.
Cherry makes a "brown" switch that is not quite as loud as the classic buckling spring. I have a cheap nixeus keyboard that uses "brown" knock-offs. They're pretty good and not so loud as to be annoying. I wouldn't use this keyboard in public, at a Starbucks or in the library, but it's fine in my home office.
What's the value of an asshole that spends his evening judging the value of others he has never met?
You mean, like you're doing right now? Good question.
