Designer Jeabyun Yeon has created something great. Essentially it turns humans into fish.
Sounds very sciencey. I can't wait until I can get turned into a fish, essentially.
But since she is not in the middle of a similar personal crisis, there is little to no excuse for her publicly calling him out on those comments. A graceful, caring person would have thought "I disagree with his overall position and I understand that he's hurting. I shouldn't make a deal about this."
But instead, she has no qualms rushing to the presses to alert the world to what a hateful person she can make him out to be. Her whole article wasn't about the morality of euthanasia, it was about what a terrible person Scott Adams must be. Instead of interpreting his comments the sensible way: ("He wants everybody who disagrees with him to understand the pain of that type of situation"), she makes him out to be a Hitler-esque angry guy who literally wants to kill everyone who disagrees with him.
The part that absolutely floored me was this:
When Adams returned my call...
She called him?!?! She invaded his personal space in his darkest moments of grief to get all political on his ass? What a bitch. I'm sure she didn't do much to change his mind.
The error code it gives apparently has something to do with either a driver problem or an issue with a startup program (but I tried disabling all startup programs). Windows Update says I'm all up to date on everything, so there's nothing I can really do, unless there's some driver update in the next few weeks, or if MS releases an updated updater (not likely).
Also, this doesn't have much to do with the gripes I listed above, but since Windows Update has been the place to go for service packs and updates to Windows, why don't they just make the 8.1 update available there, instead of in the stupid Windows App store? Most of the time when I've gone to the app store, I can't find anything about the 8.1 update, so instead I have to go to the MS website, where I can click a link to the update in the app store. I get that OS X does their updates through the OS X app store, and MS is trying to gradually turn Windows into a touch-based iOS/Windows Phone-style interface, but it seems like the app store is a stupid place for an update to the entire OS, since other OS-level updates happen through Windows Update.
Not so much a gripe about Ubuntu Phone (since it's not a released product) as it is about TFA,
And also, there is at least some anecdotal evidence that progressives do indeed support IRS bullying of political speech so long as it isn't their speech.
Seriously? Do you not realize that people on either side do indeed support government "bullying of political speech so long as it isn't their speech?" As much as people like Glenn Beck like to say "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to my death your right to say it," the truth is, those same people would (and do) hang their opposition by their words at the first opportunity. If they had the government on their side, they would be happy to do it more.
I always think it's funny when people on either side of the aisle pretend that their own side is the moral side, and would always stand up for values regardless of the situation. There are people on all sides who would do that. And then there are plenty on both sides who do the opposite.
Most of the 23 items are about making existing background checks more effective by encouraging (not ordering) government entities to share information better. Many are clarifying what rights and authority different agencies or individuals (such as doctors) already have.
But who needs rational discussion at a time like this?
I don't really think that caps are really something to fight against via legislation... not in the name of net neutrality anyway. I think caps are something that really have to be fought through customer demand. On the other hand, the actual issues that net neutrality is supposed to address are more about how data from certain applications, devices, or content sources gets lower priority than data from the applications, devices of content sources that are "friends" with the ISP.
So, assuming you already have it up and running on your server, all you need on your friends' computers is the web browser.
I remember being super-excited to fly as a kid, but my parents didn't seem to think it was nearly as amazing... they seemed to dread it. Now that I'm in my 30's and I fly 2-5 times per year (usually one trans-oceanic trip per year) there are a lot of parts I dread, but I still get a little bit excited about getting to the airport, seeing the planes, boarding (even if I do feel like a part of the herd in the process), and taking off/landing. There's something about a giant aluminum tube with wings lifting off the ground that still gives me a little thrill. Hopefully the 787 can take some of the edge off of the more uncomfortable parts of air travel.
