At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was "homogenized" (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century."

My wish is simple, that I had the foreknowledge to see that this once art form would become the lowest level in the IT universe. Programmers are the only people who can produce the product and they make is seem easy - therefore everyone who cannot program thinks it's easy and expect everything to be done in 20 minutes.
We were once the masters of the black arts of computing. Bending this strange hardware to our will with nothing more than a few commands (or a few thousand), and now we are nothing more than cattle being forced to rapidly spew out hack upon hack in order to push the next bullshit feature into a product that is held together with sticky tape and a bunch of #ifdefs. We are never given time to craft a response to the problem given to us, it's all just hack it up and we'll fix it next time. It's always next time. When will next time finally become this time?
If I knew how shit it would be, I would have thrown away my c64 and my VZ-300 and played in the garden with friends.
We have no fucking idea, but keep giving us money. Thanks
If they want a congressman they're heading in the wrong direction. As this stuff may be able to think for itself.
Everyone's ass looks different to their face (well for most people this is true)
Let's just fuck with the environment a bit more - nothing bad can happen. Why doesn't he attempt to stop tidal flows eroding our coastlines with 1000 foot walls. In fact why not stop the planet from spinning all together.
Snowden isn't the problem, the US government's insistence it is under attack from everyone and its belief that it needs to monitor everyone is the problem.

I've never used it personally as I don't have any android devices, but I know others who do.
Android also has a hidden permission called "Permission to fuck over the user". The reason nobody knows its existence is that it is on by default and cannot be turned off.
If two planets collided which resulted in the Earth and the Moon, could it be theorised that both planets would have been pretty much fscked and the resulting formations contain bits of both planets?
Scientists say that most of the Moon is made mostly from the same material the Earth is made from, perhaps this material is simply what you get when you smash two planets together and the rock found was simply a piece of Theia that had not been completely destroyed during the collision. I'm sure there are pieces of the original Earth to be found as well.
