What facebook needs to do is add a dislike button like youtube has.

Youtube changed their comment system so that if you click dislike, nothing happens. It doesn't decrement the number of thumbs up anymore.

If I want to comment on my local government's facebook page to complain about something why the fuck do I have to LIKE them first.

I've commented on FB pages without liking them. Not sure if they changed that recently.

no different than female circumcision

Um, no, it is hugely different. Circumcising a guy against their will is still wrong, but comparing male circumcision to female circumcision is like comparing an M-80 to an atom bomb. They can both cause destruction, but one is a much larger destruction.

There are actually different types of female circumcision. Some types are worse than male circumcision, but other types are very minor compared to male circumcision (e.g. Type IV - the nicking of the clitoris: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F...). Yet ALL types of female circumcision are banned. That means male circumcision should be banned too.

Comment: Has the defect actually been fixed? (Score 1) 99

Has Apple actually fixed the defect? Or are they just going to replace people's logic boards with logic boards that still have the design flaw and will fail within a few weeks/months? That's what Apple has been doing already for people with Apple Care or people who were willing to pay to have the problem fixed - they just replaced the logic board with a refurbed logic board, and the refurb would inevitably fail with the same problem. A lot of people went back to Apple 3 or 4 times to get the logic board replaced because the replacement boards all suffer from the same problem.

You have a point, but it was either Stuxnet or a nuclear strike by Israel. Given those two options, I think we're all better off with Stuxnet.

Iran is close enough to Israel that they couldn't be sure the radiation from a nuclear strike wouldn't spread back to Israel.
