I agree that no content from a public repo can be trusted, but at the moment I only use Git to pull from trusted private repos (which is probably a significant use case for people who are using Git in the workplace). That means yes, I need to update my Git client, but I don't need to sweat that I might already have been compromised by this vulnerability.

My defence against Americans criticising British coffee always used to be that the worst coffee I ever had was in a cafe in St. Petes, FLA. Then I had a coffee in a Starbucks at London Heathrow, and I was forced to concede to Americans that the worst coffee I ever had was indeed in Britain. :(

I, for one, will NEVER ride in or own a vehicle that does not have a steering wheel, foot-actuated throttle pedal, foot-actuated brake pedal, foot-actuated clutch pedal (where applicable), gear selector lever, etc. and I know I'm not alone in this

You never ride the subway, then? I don't think trains have steering wheels...

Driving too slow(eg the speed limit) in the passing lane or left most lane is extremely dangerous.

If you're going to drive slowly, the left lane is just the place to do it. You did notice that the article is about the UK, right?

(And I hope they do follow the rules of the road. That will include not pulling out at 65 mph into the path of a car doing 75 mph.)

What has any of this got to do with the ontological argument? Or cosmology? And neither dualism nor (most forms of) idealism have anything to do with solipsism. Are you actually reading what I'm writing? Or just responding to what you wish I'd written? You said "materialism is based on physics". Ok, where's the empirical evidence that favours materialism over rival metaphysical positions, and how would materialism be scientifically falsifiable?

The absent ones are always at fault.
