Yep, those civilians were totally to blame for Pearl Harbor. They deserved to die.
Just like those idiots in the World Trade Center. Damn fools just HAD to go to work that day.
I think Chinese is the only language we need, it's already the most spoken language in the world.
Only in head count, not by region. If the world was populated only by the Chinese, which seems to be their goal, then yes, Chinese is the most spoken language in the world. However, if you break that fact down by dialect, your statement is really weak. Mao's goal to have the entire PRC speak Mandarin really failed.
It's a democratic language that will draw from other languages where necessary and useful.
Not really. Mao tried to force all Chinese to speak Mandarin, and he failed miserably. Kinda the exact opposite of "Democratic". But of course that's not the fault of the language per se...
It's a language that has proven it can adapt to changing circumstances.
Chinese may be, but if Japanese is an example, and Japanese is adapted from Chinese by Han explorers to Japan in the Iron Age; its not very adaptable at all. The Japanese have developer THREE different writing systems to cope with with some shortcomings of the language (only two tenses, underdeveloped pronoun system, etc). That may be a shortcoming of Japanese, but Japanese is just a symptom of a language root that isn't very forgiving. I will say however that a language that can be nuanced such that 9 different meanings from changing the tone of one word may be more flexible than I give it credit for,
California is the 5th largest economy in the world, and grows most of the food in the country. But yeah, your right, we're water pigs. I hope you don't mind paying $10 for a small basket of strawberries.
What a racket.
How typical of a politician...to insist that everyone, everywhere has to shoulder the responsibility for everything that ever goes wrong.
Not everything, just the things that prevent the 1% from making money.
...English is "stupid" because there's no consistency to it.
English is a living language, and that's its strength. The debate among French speakers for French language purity is still going on becuase Frnech is an old, arcane one. They have great difficulty coming up with new words to describe new technology terms becuase they try very hard to stay within the rules of French. Coming with with new words for new ideas using old roots is destined for failure.
I think Debian's, or any distro's strength, comes from the maintainer's willingness to try new things. Sure, the swtich to systemd may have been a little heavy handed, maybe they should have forked rather than forced. But lets face it, many of the popular distros have code older than God. Ubuntu knew this when they started the Wayland effort. They blew it but they are right about X. An occasional house cleaning is sometimes in order.
