Uh oh. Peter Jackson has a new movie in development.
Perhaps my setup was more power draining than yours, but I had a keyboard, mouse and wifi dongle plugged in and the B+ didn't have enough juice to run them all. After switching to a powered hub it started working.
Imagine a 3D printer that can print a 3D printer half it's size, then use until you achieve nanotechnology.
as a full-time programmer I haven't cracked a single book or magazine related to programming in over a year. My extensive library collects extensive dust.
I'd suggest you read something, perhaps something outside of your professional area. Reading up on things outside of your area of focus can help you develop as a programmer, see things in a different light, etc...
The Republican nut jobs are a very small portion.

I agree with you that science would be better than just being a coder, but I think coding could help if it contributes to a person's ability to think logically and consistently.
President Obama identifies himself as a black man. I can't find the exact quote, but he once described himself as "a black man of mixed background". Another time he said “If I’m outside your building trying to catch a cab, they’re not saying, ‘Oh, there’s a mixed-race guy.’” The point is part of the reason he probably identifies as black is because that is how other people see him. Most people think in terms of simple race categories. (I myself am of mixed-race and I know it is a pain to have to explain this, often multiple times to the same people.)
If you look up the definition of abnormal in a dictionary, such as this one or this one. You get definitions like: ": different from what is normal or average : unusual especially in a way that causes problems" or "Not typical, usual, or regular; not normal; deviant. odd in behaviour or appearance; strange". So even if the word has a sense as you indicate, other senses of the word are pejorative.
Now dat just Cray.
Video of the Orbital Sciences Explosion at Wallops from a Cessna flying at 3000ft. Note that the video is pretty noisy so you'll want to turn your sound down.

I was wondering when the ugly racist interpretation was going to raise its head. So, far a long time Neanderthals were thought of as more primitive than humans, but now that it is known that most Europeans have Neanderthal DNA (and most Africans don't), they are being re-interpreted as being the origin of the master race.
