Like, I was over in England. You ever been to England, anyone, been to England? No one has handguns in England, not even the cops. True or false? True. Now-in England last year, they had fourteen deaths from handguns. FFFFFourteen. Now-the United States, and I think you know how we feel about handguns-woooo, I'm getting a warm tingly feeling just saying the fucking word, to be honest with you. I swear to you, I am hard. Twenty-three thousand deaths from handguns. Now let's go through those numbers again, because they're a little baffling at first glance. England, where no one has guns, fffffffourteen deaths. United States, and I think you know how we feel about guns-woooo, I'm getting a stiffy-twenty-three thousand deaths from handguns. But there's no connection, and you'd be a fool and a Communist to make one. There's no connection between having a gun and shooting someone with it, and not having a gun and not shooting someone. There have been studies made and there is no connection at all there. Yes. That's absolute proof. You know, fourteen deaths from handguns. Probably American tourists, too.
I applied this back in the early days of Java development, when the giant list of terms and conditions for the SDK download was displayed in a text field.
An editable text field.
This has two main effects that I can see:
1. I, unlike most people, am allowed to use old versions of Java to run nuclear power stations.
2. Sun owes me $1m for each JDK I downloaded back in the day.
To date I haven't received payment.
I find that highly unlikely. No true Scotsman would be narcissistic.
Hardly. Risk is a terrible game for friends - with some players being eliminated from the game long before the slow and tedious endgame, it's a bad choice for friendly gaming. There are plenty of far superior boardgames for such an environment - Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico, Agricola spring to mind as strong choices.
That would make sense, but for 4 dimensions, experience suggests that a four-sided cube works well. It's certainly not trivial.
I believe the term you're looking for is 'centre hand opponent'...
So a poor man's Bridge, then?
3D is for pussies. The only way to play tic tac toe is on a 4x4x4x4 hypercube. A straight line of four in any direction wins.
Seriously, try it.
Yes, it does. Because that's part of the Java Language Specification; any compiler that doesn't give a compile-time error in that situation isn't compliant with the JLS and thus isn't really a Java compiler.
14.21. Unreachable Statements
It is a compile-time error if a statement cannot be executed because it is unreachable.
Open justice means the people can see what the tabloid papers want us to think the people who are supposed to bring justice are doing.
It's disgusting that things like that happen. When I go to the Apple store, they find out what I intend to use my device for and then recommend an Android, iPhone, Windows phone device based on what's best for me.
So, Americans fail at maths and geography.
I'd feel smugly self-satisfied about that if it weren't for the fact that they clearly win in the impending zombie apocalypse.
Or maybe they're smarter than you think:
