Tendency? I have yet to see something like that.

i have found a few dependency problems using unstable, like 1 every 1-2 years, and most of the time it could be avoided by investing some 10 seconds reading what would be installed/removed with the current try, but a circular dependency, Im pretty sure apt has enough validations to avoid that automagically

I had a childhood surrounded by quite a few addicts, everything from alcohol to coke , crack and heroin...

It is not funny, and even the less harmfull weed destroys a lot, nobody can tell me it is fun to do drugs, I had to pay a lot just by being witness of the shit a lot of family members did to themselves, drugs are not fun, at all.

Im usually worried enough by the freakyn stuff we have to see in these days, worrign a little more about my kids doing drugs or even selling them will not help me in any way.

I prank my girls with pretty obvious things, like "let me think if we can go to movie theatre, I will tell you tomorrow", and they smile right away, not after I need to explain them that I was joking.

If the joke need any explaining it is not a good joke, period.

Just remember how much money Gates spent on a self declared failed education project....

They might be damn good at making money, but they are not as good or dont even care wellbeing for the majority... After all they are represent the best of what is making the world be as it is, socially speaking.

At least with a lot of immigrants from .mx, they may have been living worst that the 8-10 rented house, but they would not work around here! No wonder the could not achieve enough food, but for some reason migrating changes their mind and sudenly they can work, and hard... That is kind of weird for most of those who wouldn't go to USA easily.
