...2...1...Takedown! Corporations are totally out of touch with the streets. Nintendo is taking down all kinds of free fan marketing. They swatted one of Happy Console Gamer's videos that was basically a love-letter to the new Nintendo games: It's ironic and infuriating. I hate all of the big three for these reasons. They'll pay for this stance in the long term. They're already going down the drain fast now, and soon they'll probably just be another poorly maintained IP for some other shit company to purchase.

Comment: The dad did it... (Score 3, Interesting) 276

Before accepting that a 5 year old not only passed the exam, but could read and comprehend at a fully adult level, I have another hypothesis: the dad did it... He obviously made the kid's website, so why would it surprise anyone if he "helped" the kid through the test. It's the same way that kids used to win slot-racing competitions.

I'm going to make a guess here. No academic would leave that line right in the middle of their paper, and there is no way that the fire-breathing peer reviewers would let it slip. It was probably a comment left in one version of the document that was incorrectly transferred into the text of the final copy. When you have a million versions of closed-source MS Office files floating around, this shit happens. Another reason to use open formats.

Every program is a part of some other program, and rarely fits.
