As somebody from South Africa (and who even takes the train through Salt River), I have to say I was also a bit confused. I'm assuming they meant a fence, although a fence isn't really "oblivious" as OP said. Perhaps they mean a customer who just happens to find a 'great deal' on a refurbished phone at their local pawn shop...

If you're male and reading /. you won't be seeking an abortion for a significant other because you're single.

Thus, since you are addressing a /. audience, your logic can be simplified to :

Texas legislature is no problem as long as you are male or not seeking an abortion.

But 2/5 for effort.

It exponentially increases the amount of code that would have to be reviewed for proprietary secrets and patent infringement. On the other hand, just releasing the drivers wouldn't be as much of an issue, since they just target an interface that doesn't reveal what happens on the other side.

No, from the very papers you referenced, it has been found that *a single* GMO crop didn't have higher yields than classical crops. You can't extrapolate that to others.

Your generalization is like saying the inline assembler optimizations one programmer performed didn't speed up a program, so inline assembler optimizations can't speed up programs. Which is clearly BS.
