I am writing this story because, if it could happen to me, it could happen to you, and I feel the need to do something to help prevent this brutality from propagating."

Am I really the only one who permanently blacklists any website that has "video" news? Video requires 100% of my attention, and probably headphones, to avoid distracting all those around me. It also occurs at your speed. I can read faster than you can talk, and it does not distract anyone around me.
If i want to *SEE* what happened i'll go to youtube
On a news site I want to *READ* about it!

This. It will hurt. A lot. This means that 64x64 -> 64 multiply (what gcc will do if you multiply two uint64_t values) will now need 10 multiplies, at least 20 shifts (16 to cut off tops 16 bits of intermediates, 5 for result alignment), and 9 additions, instead of just 2 long multiplies and one long multiply accumulate. Ouch...
