Everyone should be required to take a single class, if for no better reason than to teach them A) some basic logic, and B) what's going on behind the scenes in the technology they use every day. And there's should be electives available every year, similar to band/orchestra/wood shop.
Or do what I do, and skip them all together. Yuck.
Man, oh man, if only I had mod points. Insightful, people!
You know how many people DHMO kills every year? Won't someone think of the children?
Bullets are detectable, right? Good luck making plastic casings for those. Oh, and plastic slugs of course.
Yes, I know you can click the transcript, but making us wade through a 2 minute video ad (with horribly choppy sound for me) seems pretty obnoxious. I doubt anybody from Slashdot or Dice is actually in here reading these comments, but if you are, I thought you should know that I'll be avoiding these kinds of articles from now on.
Agreed. 50ms is long enough to get from Chicago to NY, TWICE, on fiber (and not using the special low-latency routes). I don't need it to be exactly like sitting at the workstation, I'm just looking for it to be USABLE, unlike Citrix connections that drop anytime someone sneezes at a NOC somewhere.
Perhaps with a picture of the goatse.cx guy on the front.
Man, do I wish for mod points. I was thinking the exact same thing about our star wandering. If the spiral arms are hostile to life, that could *significantly* cut down on the number of stars capable of supporting life.
You forgot the unwritten (until just now) rule that all analogies on Slashdot must be car analogies. This is like if he bought a Jaguar that he thought was going to be a fun, sexy ride, but instead is terribly high maintenance and broken most of the time.
If only I had mod points. That's an insightful comment if ever I heard one.
I had never heard of this. Fascinating, and a little frightening.
Actually, I think his argument was the opposite, saying that because horses are not that intelligent either, he's not worried about eating them.
