Coming from a government that does unconstitutional things against the people, hiding behind force and threat of force against innocents. Fuck off, Obama administration, you are not American, not legitimate, and not a government of a free people operating under the rule of law

that's not how it goes, sadly. Instead hyper-intelligent twats with no engineering ability nor common sense nor understanding of end user needs squat and crap in the open source and closed source pools and either render existing good software nearly useless, or displace the good with their diseased bloated wares that have shit for UI. E.g. GNOME3, Unity, systemd, Windows 8.x etc. and etc.

You are very wrong, any competent physicist would tell you so. You have made a religion in your mind about science.

We already know our models such as quantum theory and general relativity are incorrect; they break down in certain situations.

We already know the useful "laws" we use are just approximations, e.g. ohm's law, hooke's law, boyle's law, etc.
