Sorry but you must take the transcendent into account, like you have to take the result of a division by zero into account, if only to say it is something that does not belong to the set of numbers. Unfortunately current atheism is about attributing qualities to the transcendent like all religions do and then pretending they are more rational than them. And nobody bats an eye, and calls sheep the churchgoers, LOL!
The simple choice of not believing is sufficient, without attempting proofs that fail the first time they attribute something to the transcendent (out of scope error, nothing of this universe is necessarily defined outside of it, not even the most basic principles, without introducing assumptions, which means you build a new religion).

Besides, that guy doesn't know ANYTHING.

Mining asteroids!

You see, when you hit an asteroid it fragments in many little ones that begin spreading around, so you have to hit all of them too and escape from them at the same time, and every now and then an alien ship comes around and start shooting creating even more chaos.

> The reason you don't see more available from the likes of HP, Dell, Acer, and others is because it creates a support nightmare.

I don't doubt your word but I can't understand. If I sell you a tire I am not liable if the gearbox breaks down. If I sell you a laptop with no OS I should bundle a diagnostic cd rom and if the hardware passes the test I should have no obligation supporting whatever stuff you installed on it, it is not my problem.

In fact I'd be happy buying a pc like that, all my support questions have been like "The restore dvd is ruined or somehow failed, I have the original OS serial number and want to reinstall, wat do?" and the answer, *crickets*.

Insurance companies will no longer need to profile all people, they will simply ask their pals in the health sector to lock the heart rate for life insurance ("No no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'!") and put it in HNGGGGGGGG mode if their pension funds customers don't obey the proper life expectancy :)

Your thesis is substantiated by another dramatic close encounter with a missile happened more than 3 decades ago in Italy, and to this day we don't know who killed all those people, source, and if the trail of suicides-bad luck that oppressed the witnesses is entirely casual.

Wars have ended when a single system enveloped all the world. We now have destruction as an excuse to rebuild infrastructure and reset economic systems so that they cannot be proved as broken by design.

Now this is merely a theory, but it explains more things than the many flags theory.

I too would be wary of whatever comes out the likes of the pulseaudio guy, but this is an ad hominem. Systemd has already many questionable aspects without having to bring in Lennart's previous artwork.

As of now, knoppix works on all my hardware, boots as fast as systemd distro (if not faster), so I plan to wait 'till systemd does the damage it was designed for (I know, others call it "innovation", by the fruit...), before NOT switching to it :)
