Weirly, I was thinking about that comic entry just a couple of days ago. "It's simple math that shows that Munroe's method is better for creating stronger password" - is it, though? What about dictionary attacks? Attackers could just join 3 or 4 English words together in an attempt to brute force such passwords. This drastically reduces that kind of "passphrase"'s entropy.

Politics.

Women can vote too. Apparently they're voting for men. Or maybe not as many women are willing to put in the time and effort to be high-ranking politicians. Either way I don't see any "power imbalance". Women have equal opportunity.

The only ones of which I am aware are Maternity leave (more common that Paternity leave) and alimony.

Yeah quite. Rather unfair to men, isn't it? Especially alimony, which as I understand it in the US is basically a free monthly payment to a woman when she decides she wants to end the marriage.

For example, I acknowledge there is a power imbalance between women and men, favouring men.

That smells like a crock of shit to me. Please list examples in Western societies today where there is a power imbalance between the genders. Including ones where women are given preferential treatment.

Actually, I should've said a net increase of 250,000 population through immigration per year. It's actually more like 500,000 immigrants per year.

To put that in perspective, the USA currently seems to get about 1 million immigrants per year. The land mass of England is 130,395 km2. The land mass of the USA is 9,629,091 km2. ~500,000 coming into England every year is like ~37 million immigrants entering the USA every year.

far right rhetoric, nationalism anti-immigrant and anti-EU whargarbl that UKIP is putting out

I'm sorry, but Utter Crap.

The reason many people are voting for UKIP is because they're the only party willing to properly address the issues of the EU and border control. Right now the UK has 250,000 immigrants a year, almost all of which go into England. England is the 2nd most densely populated region of Europe, behind the Netherlands. This is an *insane* level of immigration that is completely unsustainable. To raise this point is not far right or racist or any other such nonsense that has been flung at UKIP.

Yeah, the metric martyrs thing was dumb, but bear in mind even UKIP only wanted traders to have the *option* of selling in pounds and ounces. AFAIK they haven't said they want children to be downgraded to retarded imperial measurements in school. If they did they'd probably lose my vote. This seems to be unique Cameron stupidiy.

Yeah I really hate the UKIP obsession with imperial measurements. It's one of their fuckwitty policies (though still not a dealbreaker policy IMHO, unlike the Greens' rejection of nuclear power). However I suspect even UKIP would be more about choice as to which system to use rather than forcing us back to fucking imperial again.

I'd argue that it might be able possible to build peer-to-peer systems instead of centralized ones that use our desktops (because making phones part of the peer-to-peer network is a drain on battery power) and end-to-end encryption, but it would be very hard and there's very little funding or interest in it.

Freenet?

Any given program, when running, is obsolete.
