sugar: 50% fructose, 50% glucose HFCS: 55% fructose, 45% glucose
zomg, clearly hfcs is the reason people are getting so much fatter.

It's not that simple.
Do a little reading about it. Your body has to expend energy/effort to break sugar into fructose + glucose, whereas with HFCS, the fructose and glucose are already separated and your body has immediate use of them. This is the kicker, and why HFCS is worse than sugar. Of course, even worse than HFCS is fruit juice that's high in fructose.

It'd only be nice if you have a filing fetish. It's not useful. Any minor pleasure it might bring filing fetishists would be vastly outweighed by those ordinary phone users who lose applications.

That's a rather naive thing of you to say. Some of us have a hundred apps installed, and it's very useful to have them organized and be able to select them quickly with just a couple or three taps, rather than scrolling through dozens of pages of grids.

More to the point, when people use, "Google," as a verb, they mean to actually use Google, as opposed to using any brand of facial tissue available when saying, "Kleenex."

Exactly! You can't google something using Bing, for example. Not that you'd want to anyway. You can only google something using Google.

(Now I feel like I need to go wash my hands after mentioning Bing. Eww.)

Don't feel bad. It's tricky wording. I wasn't sure how to word it to be clear (and to be fair, I don't think it was really clear). "Opposites" to me would imply 180 opposing... so I wrote "mirror-opposites" to imply a vertical mirror, but of course that's pretty subtle and not very unambiguous.

I'm pretty sure, though, that even any class that requires you to use equals(), you can still use == as a fast-precheck. That is, a==b implies a.equals(b) for all objects a,b in all classes. The converse, of course, is not the case: a.equals(b) does not imply a==b. And the inverse is not true: a!=b does not imply !a.equals(b). But the contra-positive is true: !a.equals(b) does imply a!=b.

Wasn't there something about a PASCAL programmer knowing the value of everything and the Wirth of nothing?
