Comment: Re:Iran is not trying to save money (Score 1) 375 375

I don't exactly believe they *aren't* working for a bomb. I'm just saying your "evidence" is pretty thin for an accusation that they *are* working for a bomb. 20% isn't anywhere near what you need for a bomb. Maybe it's more than what they otherwise would need, but we could speculate all day as to what that implies. Maybe the centrifuges they made were just really good and happened to give them more yield than they needed. Maybe they didn't dispose of the centrifuges that did more than necessary because they're just expensive and a waste to throw away. I don't know. You don't know either.

I work for a tech company in engineering as well (electrical). My company prides itself on being "picky" in terms of who it hires, but honestly they reject a lot of people who I think would work out just fine. We get hundreds of resumes at career fairs, and pick about 10 to even contact at all. Then, if we're lucky, just one will accept our offer. It's ridiculous. Maybe what Google needs is similar to what my company needs: to not be so pretentious about their requirements.

The problem with Grooveshark is that it wasn't sending the ad revenue to the copyright owners. You were already pirating. As you explained though, it's kind of hard not to if you want reliability. The best thing to do is make sure to see the artists you like in concert whenever possible. Songkick is great at facilitating that.

I don't know why this got modded up.

That's the price all of us have to pay when we, the majority, cannot and/or dare not to, control the action of the few

That's called tyrany. Our country was founded on the "few" having protections from the majority.

No matter if it's USA or France of Belgium or the Netherlands or Germany, as long as our society can not (and/or dare not to) confront those Islamists and get them to ditch their barbaric behavior, all of us will suffer

Define "confront".

You guys saw what happened in Garland Texas just days before

Yeah, some retards got shot by the police without inflicting any serious harm.

You guys saw the length the government of Germany has to go --- including canceling at least two public events --- just to prevent the events becoming a bloodbath by the hands of the Islamists

That's debatable and begs for citation. Even if they did cancel events due to terrorist threats, it doesn't imply that there would definitely have been a bloodbath had they not.

And that's not all ... the Madrid train station bombing, the Boston Marathon bombing, the London Tube bombing, what happened to the World Trade Center of New York City, and so on

There have been significant acts of terrorism well before Islamic terrorism was all the rage. Oklahoma city, University of Texas, and so on.

they better behave like the Western people do ... they can go back to where they came from

Sure you're from China and not Arizona?

they get to do whatever they like in the wide sand fields of Saudi Arabia, I don't care

Your previous statements make it sound like you do.

The world at large has been very tolerant with them

I wouldn't go that far, but there is an effort to hold back full on racism in the interest of not marginalizing innocent Muslims.

When all else fails, read the instructions.
