Comment We have no idea how westerners handle quarantine (Score 1) 359

Furthermore, people in 1st world countries are also less inclined to break people out of quarantine...

Do you have any evidence of this? There hasn't been a major contagious outbreak in most of the west for decades. I predict people well break themselves and their families out of quarantine in an attempt to "save them".

Comment Do Raspberry Pi or Arduino single purpose ? (Score 1) 391

Do Raspberry Pi with add on boards count as computers? If so then I built one last year.

The answer is different if we're talking about desktop class machines. All my "windows" machines are dell outlet specials.

Of course the Raspberry Pi is the same speed as "desktop class" of 15 years ago.

Not to mention another senator from Nevada calling his own citizens "domestic terrorists" for basically trespassing.

You're talking about the situation where government agents backed down from confronting a person who was trespassing and stealing government resources and his armed thug friends? They backed down because of a fear of violence not because they revised their policies. The senator was right.

How did this get mod'd up. Its less coherent and more of a rant than the parent.

Right, because who needs to pass a law requiring a gun registry when we can just ask the NSA for a list on demand?

Oh, wait, maybe this is a BAD thing.

You gun nutjobs would probably be a lot more successful at making your case if you could string together at least 140 characters that make sense. Right now, people like you are actively keeping the phrase "gun nutjob" alive, and you're turning off people like me who actually support your position. I know it's asking a lot of someone with a room temperature IQ, but could you at least try to think before you click "post"?
