Why are we spending money finding planets we'll never see when there are kids starving to death?

Just don't bother doing any business in the US if you can happily avoid it..
This is true.. But look at this headline:
BLACK MEN RAPE YOUNG GIRLS
Now, it may be true that they are black. Its also likely that other people who were not black were also involved, but bringing out one attribute such as ethnicity or a technical aptitude really does not describe the whole situation. What the headline should be is:
Which, instead of attributing *ALL* hackers or *ALL* black men to a certain criminal activity, makes the distinction that not all people with that attribute are criminals, only a certain minotiry who engage in the mentioned criminal activity.
So whatever way you look at it, it is sloppy.
Errm, nobody seems to have noticed the headline of this story..
"Hackers Respond To Help Wanted Ads With Malware"
FFS Slashdot, these are not Hackers they are Criminals.
Really, if they are going to be any good, they will most likely ALREADY know what Linux is and how it works.
If they don't, really, don't bother them with it. It'll just confuse them.
An excellent summary..
Really, the West should concentrate on not giving the Chinese everything we have.
This is how it is working:
1) We have the ideas and make East Asian people make them cheap.
2) They profit we do not.
3) They buy everything we have.
4) They have the ideas and since we have all gone bankrupt we make it cheap.
And yeah, dump NASA and get yourself a working healthcare system at least! Then ban guns (yeah HOW MANY PEOPLE DIE OF GUN CRIME IN THE US?)
You just dont take jobs hundreds of miles away from your family...
It's great for a bit of extra consultancy work when you have been made redundant too.. Walk out and guess what, a week later things break and you're on $1000 a day fixing it
But really, the best thing to do is to treat your IT staff properly in the first place.
In the UK we have a special law when we're 'made' to give up encryption keys when asked by whoever arrested you. But what if the encryption keys have been destroyed, can they still make you give up what you do not have?

Because I am not in a-marry-car you insensitive clod!
Yeah but he is not a troll, he is just telling the truth. In the US you have kids with leukemia with parents unable to afford the best treatment, but hey you it's OK because you can go to the moon! In the UK we have our kids looked after and getting the treatment they need but no moon..
guess what I would rather have.
Looks like nobody took you seriously
Quite. I was walking past Pizza Hut the other day and they were trying to send their bluetooth shite to my phone. Not being happy with their crap spamming my phone and noticing the little bluetooth ad box plugged in by the window, I popped in and turned it off.
NO I DONT WANT A BLOODY PIZZA HUT SPECIAL OFFER.
