I'm not sure why you were modded Troll. I tend to agree. Types are no good if they are not enforced. Either use a language that doesn't enforce typing or use one that does. This in between approach is indeed lazy.
I wouldn't resort to it right away but I'm happy knowing I can, and have, live off the land. First I'd start with my vegan and vegetarian neighbors though. They are more likely to not be armed and are grass/grain fed.
Except that the franchise used to have depth and technobabble. Serious social issues were explored in an entertaining way. The current reboot is basically devoid of that depth.
I still use Lynx, etc. I also use Firefox, Chrome, and IE. I haven't abandoned things so much as I've added things. It's not an all or nothing proposition. I love my Asus Transformer Prime, but I also love my old Linux box that doesn't even have a graphical display. Both have their place.
Or care about ongoing oppression.
It is on Slashdot because it falls under the 'stuff that matters' category.
I'll bet she'd still look good petrified.
I didn't say some people were not opposed to Obama out of racism. My point was that ad hominem and baseless claims of racism are immediately made just about anytime someone criticizes him, and that is true. I'm not the one being stupid here.
Didn't you get the memo? Anyone who doesn't agree with every single thing President Obama says and does has to be racist. There is no other explanation. Nothing else matters.
That depends on the beer. While 25 or 30 years would be extreme, a high gravity barleywine for example can benefit from five or ten years of aging. It will become a lot more port or sherry-like. I have bottles of a very strong barleywine I made about 12 years ago and it's still incredible. It's changed quite a bit but it is fantastic. I don't know what it would be like after a couple of decades but I'm pretty sure it will still be drinkable. Sealing the caps with wax helps as it keeps oxygen from creeping in. Oxidation is the primary reason why older bottles of beer taste bad.
It says a relatively young cluster of stars. That doesn't mean that some members of the cluster aren't old enough to have gone nova. Also, larger hotter stars (than the Sun) don't stay in the main sequence nearly as long, so it's possible that some were just under the threshold to become neutron stars. There is no contradiction there.
Most beer shouldn't be ice cold to begin with. Good beer at least. I agree with your sentiments about the mass market fizzy piss they call beer though.
Because encouraging kids to lie to their parents is a good thing. Causing family stress is a good thing. What a stupid idea. Kids lie enough and cause enough stress as it is.
I use Linux, Windows, OS X, Solaris, etc. I've run OS/2, BeOS, and more as well. The only time I 'migrate' anything is if I am re-purposing a box, usually because I'm replacing its primary function with something newer.
I've been doing things this way for 20 years and there has been no problems. I know what I am doing. Stop wasting my time kid.

That almost never happens, partially because I'm not a kid (late 40's) and partially because their employer is paying gobs of money for my time as a security engineer/consultant.
