Comment No. Fund homeopathy properly. (Score 1) 668

This is a horrible idea. Government needs to fund homeopathy as much as possible.

By my understanding of these things, that should mean the tiniest fraction of a cent's worth of funding to cover the next 50,000 years. With that sort of money behind them, homeopaths should be the richest people in the world!

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.

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.

The world is coming to an end--save your buffers!
