I do single out Islam as uniquely bad. No, you can't just replace "Muslims" with "Catholics". Catholics have a core text that can at least be invoked to "love your fellow man", "turn the other cheek", and "render to Caesar that which is Caesar's". Nor is it meant to be the perfect word of God so it can be heavily cherrypicked.

That doesn't apply to Islam.

There is plenty of room available to build new houses, it's just that we don't

Are you talking about the UK? If so, bullshit. We build 100k new houses a year. Also take a look at a satellite map of the UK. See all those big grey scars over the green area? That's fucking huge towns and cities that are rapidly expanding. Believe it or not, some people value having a countryside rather than covering all the land in fugly concrete jungles like London.

I've had quite a few people ask me about this new Windows 10 they're hearing about, and I proceed to show them chapter/verse of just how insidious it is.

I explained that to my brother too. He agreed with it, and I offered to install a new SSD in his slow laptop and reinstall Windows 7 on that. A few weeks later he went out and bought a new laptop with Windows 10 on it. I think we're screwed.

I now have his old laptop with a new SSD and a fresh Windows 7 install. Runs fine.

Also, the world should probably always have a few, even if they're locked in a drawer somewhere. Because aliens.

How's that gonna work then? Nukes are designed to land on Earth. Even if you found a way to launch them at a space target the nuclear fallout would probably fuck over everybody on Earth anyway, doing the aliens' job for them.

Comment What's wrong with subtitles? (Score 1, Insightful) 24

I hate that the BBC are so obsessed with voiceovers. Just use subtitles for God's sake, and that way we can actually hear the original language. Some of us prefer that to a voiceover.

Yeah yeah it's prejudiced against blind people... and voiceovers are prejudiced against deaf people.
