>Socialists and capitalists are not opposites. Stop it, stop being stupid.

Maybe you buy that a state sector combined with a welfare state constitutes some kind of "socialism". Fine, the word has meant many things in its long history. But it's always been defined by its opposition to capitalism. Socialism is nothing if not the opposite of capitalism.

A few people are trying to exploit it without really believing in it (the government of Mexico

I don't see any evidence of that. They're merely trying to capitalize on a big (meaningless) event in the calender of their pre-Columbian ancestors. Slashdot and its linked article seem to be just assuming that Mexico's ad campaign is trying to attract doomsday nuts -- but if doomsday nuts are attracted by it, so what?

The *only* bit of evidence the article has is this:

The tourism board acknowledges its promotional doomsday motives and says “Whatever your beliefs may be, come and be part off a very historic experience.”

which is, at most, open to interpretation.

It's an open standard and will be needed by a lot of developers who want or must write standard compliant code. This is EXACTLY the thing RMS means when he is shouting his song.

Yeah, speaking of that... what criteria is it meeting to be called an "open standard"?

I've been quite willing from the very beginning. There's no apparent problem with my environment. "Need" is a pretty strong word and I don't think I can answer that question for sure, but I have no desire to go off my medication.

Well, since you asked...

1. bupropion (Wellbutrin)
2. gabapentin
3. methylphenidate (Ritalin)
4. lamotrigine (Lamictal)
5. trazodone

Gabapentin and lamotrigine are classed as mood stabilizers (gabapentin is also great for anxiety, especially social anxiety), bupropion and trazodone are classed as antidepressants but I take trazodone (every night before bed) because it's also a sedative, and methylphenidate is a stimulant.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
