Which MAC are you talking about? It's an acronym for more things than you may know.
If you're referring to the shortened nick for Macintosh, spell it as so. As for MAC, well you're just feeding the bad habit that people on the internet somehow created. I personally read it as Media Access Control initially (when people type MAC, referring to anything). Anyways. It's a simple name. Learn how to type it right.
I find it upsetting that my online access to my bank account has a password limit of 10 characters which are also limited to letters and numbers. I've called and complained, but of course the silly stupid customer doesn't know anything about anything. Here's the exact limits according to their website:
Password must be between 7 and 10 alpha-numeric characters. Acceptable characters for passwords include combinations of any of the following characters: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, or )
I hate retarded security.
can we please get back to arguing now?
Yeah, right after I finish beating Doom III by "I.D." software running on my "MAC".
I wouldn't be surprised if the poster pronounces daemon as "daymon" either. The geek ego sure seems to get in the way of learning how to pronounce things. It looks like devs these days will have to provide audio files to show how to pronounce their work.
*shakes his head at correct pronunciation deniers*
The claim that most people are not dehydrated has never been proven in any credible manner, why do you believe it to be true.
This is "prove that God doesn't exist" all over again. You are making the claim that it does. You provide the evidence.
The Darwin kernel is, the userland isn't.
You mean the xnu kernel? Look at the open source page http://opensource.apple.com/release/mac-os-x-1064/ and you'll find more than enough userspace software to show that you're wrong. Also, http://www.puredarwin.org/
My little brother is a Boy Scout, so I've attended some of the ceremonies. One thing that's always struck me is there's usually a period in which the leader of the ceremony says something along the lines of "We now ask that you join us in a moment of silence/prayer (I don't remember which), each in your own way." followed by the moment of silence. Why couldn't the schools take the same attitude? It's not that acknowledging religion is illegal/unconstitutional, it's that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" (although that, of course, only applies to Congress, not the states).
I was kicked out of Boy Scouts when I was 15 when I became confident in the lack of a god, a Christian god to be specific of what I was taught as a child.
The reason I got kicked out was because I didn't want to remain silent of my lack of such a belief.
You can believe that those silences lack specific meaning all you want, I know for a fact that you need to bow down and be reverent to a higher power, or if you don't you need to keep your mouth shut in order to be and remain a Boy Scout, and that prayer was quite regular in ceremonies. Really really bad example you gave.

As for having silences in school, I personally would have a big issue in practicing these "silences" as a standard for all students in a tax funded school. No one needs to announce and practice a silence time at all, you have the right to have your personal silence time all you want, just don't practice it on my child, no matter how broad you define it.
Does it still come with the OS in the current Mac OS?
Did some have weapons? YES. Kills authorized? YES. It's the people in the van helping the wounded that are the crime. You never shoot wounded, ever, ever, ever.
Though I mentioned this before I'll mention it again - Iraqi law under Saddam and was continued by Paul Bremmer allows civilians to carry ak-47s.
Imagine the military wiping out a bunch of American civilians because someone was carrying a rifle, and had the right to carry that rifle in public! That's what the situation was here. And of course if you watched the video it was a camera, not RPG.
WikiLeaks commented that there was a possibility that at least one person had a weapon.
Just to note, police officers, military and citizens - every Iraqi man is allowed to personally own an ak-47. It was Iraqi law under Saddam and was continued by Paul Bremmer.
Someone carrying around an ak-47 is doing it because they have the right to do it, especially out in public like that.
