Anybody who ever served on active duty and handled classified information is just a bit hacked off at Her Majesty's cavalier attitude about, well, everything.

That's true, but comparing Hillary's sending and receiving emails that weren't marked as classified over a non-government server is absolutely NOTHING compared to Petraus' knowingly giving top secret information to someone with neither a need to know nor a security clearance. Remember Mata Hari? (I probably spelled that wrong)

Plus, his adultery is strictly against the USMJ code; people have gotten dishonorable discharges for that alone, and anyone else would have gotten time in Leavenworth for spilling secrets. Petraus got off not with a slap on the wrist, but a stern talking to.

Journal Journal: Gimpy text and Mars

I use the Gnu Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) to design book covers. It's an excellent free open source program that has three weaknesses -- its menu structure is completely illogical (but can be gotten used to), I can't find a full spectrum palette, and its text handling is so poor as to be useless.

The People really don't want one either. People don't really want to know what is being done in their name by politicians, or else they would be pissed off. Plausible deniability. It is how many Germans ignored the Nazis.

To know, would require a person of any amount of conscience to act.

Racist Xenophobic conversations would be something I would engage in, not because I was either. It is more interesting to troll the stupid idiots spewing crap, than it is listening to conversations about LeBron or Kardashians.

I could have a shit ton of fun with that.

The CM Micromax Deal was dreadfully short sighted. While they gained Micromax, they pissed off a whole bunch of people. I would be on ColorOS if it weren't for a missing single feature I use regularly, single button screenshot. If they add that, I'll be off CM for good.

Analysis Reveals Almost No Real Women On Ashley Madison 437

gurps_npc writes: Ashley Madison claimed to have about 31 million men and 5.5 million woman enrolled. Those odds are not good for the men, 6:1. But unfortunately, most of those 'women' were fake. This researcher analyzed the data and found only 12,000 actual, real women using Ashley Madison. That means for every 7750 men, there were 3 women. There are reports that Ashley Madison paid people to create fake female profiles. Their website admits that 'some of the users may be there for "entertainment purposes."' The article itself is well written, including a description of the analysis. A charitable person would say that Ashley Madison was selling a fantasy, not reality. But a realist would say Ashley Madison is just a thief stealing money from lonely, unhappy men.

" he was fired from his job at Harts"

I've never worked for Hart's in my life.

" fired from his job at Papa Johns..."

Incorrect, I quit and filed suit with CA DLSE.

"fired from his job at a porn shop"

Yep. HR policy is entirely too strict. Your third late, EVER, is termination. Even for managers.

"drug addicted, alcoholic Homosexual"

I'm a medical cannabis user because I can't use opiates. Not even Immodium-AD. Alcoholic? Not even. Homosexual? Not entirely. AC's hating because I get laid more than they'll ever achieve in their life.

"High School Drop-out"

Yup, and went right to taking the college classes I felt like taking instead. My GED scores still place me in the top 2% national percentile of traditional high school graduates.

" He can't even hold down a job delivering Pizza!"

This idiot apparently doesn't know of the multiple lawsuits against Papa John's going on in multiple states for everything from refusal to pay mileage to improper classification of employees. Again, I wasn't fired, I quit and SUED.

"we researched his ass (he's not a "Research Director")"

There are multiple videos and pictures of me in the UK performing my duties as research director. I've got the contract, the passport stamps to the UK, and more.

"and arrived at the only sound and 'logical' conclusion: a Complete, Utter and Total Looser!"

Can you trust someone that can't even spell 'loser' properly, let alone utilize proper capitalization?

20:1 it's APK and his furfag pals, since he's got such an obvious hard-on for me.

Wouldn't be any accidents with all automated cars. For that matter, if a light's out, it won't matter to an automated car. Once they're all automated, lights would just be a visual indicator to the car's passengers that they're stopping. And central traffic control should have to stop cars a lot less than cars currently have to stop.

Could be overridden from a central location and commanded to drive to the nearest police station, far less risky to the public and police officers in the field than pulling them over in some random location. Once it's at the local police station it could be directed to the high security suspect holding spot / car crusher out back, where the occupants could be safely extracted before or after being crushed with their car.

Hey everyone, I have an ASHLEY MADISON ACCOUNT - discretion needed.

It isn't the bank cards, those can be canceled, it isn't the other details, it is the fact that you're on a website looking to cheat or find cheaters. It says a lot about your morals. We don't have to impose our morals on anyone. I don't trust people searching for cheating lovers.
