Good point, the federal government should have nothing to do with either.
So if we put them in charge of making sure everyone plays fair on the internet you don't think they'd abuse it? lol. Here when they have no such authority, are already abusing it.
how would they enforce net neutrality exactly?
This thought keeps popping into my head. Think about all this crap that has been uncovered. And you want to put these people in charge of net neutrality?
Probably the best developer I ever worked with graduated from DeVry.
lol i'm not sure if i just haven't been browsing bsd sotries, there haven't been as many of them or this old slashdot comment hasn't been around for awhile.
brings back fond memories of bsd stories spammed with the exact same thing, more than any other comments.
Swing is one of the few things I've seen leave programmers speechless with frustration.
umm what? as much as a pain as layouts can be to get things to do what you want, swing was still really well done and is incredibly flexible and versatile. I'd hardly call swing something form planet weird. And having worked with solaris/sunos some, it's really well done as well. Honestly, saying sun was from planet weird is just... weird to me
Do you understand why they added protection in the first place? It's the same with all those stupid macho arguments about football players wearing all that protection while rugby players don't and therefore are manly.
here's the spoiler. it's because people died. Football is a collision sport, that is different from rugby and hockey, even though they certainly have some high speed collisions, it is not as constant.
if you get shot, chances are you will live. 6 out of 7 people shot, live.
haha sure buddy. You take 20+ people dead I'll take the other odds any day.
and your reply would be just as wrong.
you stated that there are people who say, immediately following an attack like this, You then imply that it's mostly only people who are pro gun(using a stupid john wayne reference)
Your second implication is false.
yes. and it's a point that gets made over and over that people don't want kids to kill themselves playing with the a gun. It does not happen often enough to warrant any concern. As for actual homocide, it's true we liek to kill each other way to often. It's also true that number, even when counting suicides is less than people killed by cars. I hear a fuck ton more about gun control than car control. It's also true when you take away people with a criminal background that homocide number drops way down. So basically unless you're a criminal guns are an insignificant threat to your life. That morning commute though...
I'd like taht number too. But since you can't get an accurate number on how many lives, you can only estimate... in any case the various estimates range from millions to hundreds of thousands of injuris/deaths. Good lucky finding an unbiased source on that.
Regardless 121 people a year.. you have a better chance of being struck by lightning.
