Fuck all the shitty languages and "new" platforms. Now that you've actually grown up and stopped being a fucking fanboy,

Yes. Eventually you realize it's the programmers that make the difference, not the language.

Any time you hear someone say, "we're going to rewrite this because the new language will make things better" you know that their new product will be even worse.

I don't think we are quite there yet... China still only has enough nukes to ward off any hawks.

Well, how many nukes does it take, exactly, to destroy a country? Realistically, all anyone has is enough nukes to ensure's not like the US is able to bomb Russia without retribution. Estimates of China's stockpile vary, up to 3000 warheads. China is secretive and everyone is just guessing what they actually have. Any number you see is just a guess.

In any case, it's pointless to talk about arms-reduction without being aware that one important country is aiming for arms-increase.

I dunno. I know there are brilliant doctors and scientists in Atlanta who handle highly-communicable diseases,

I don't know anything about Atlanta's medical scene, but the reality is, that sometimes there are boneheaded doctors who make boneheaded decisions.
