Without being able to blow your foot off at times, you'll never learn not to point your gun at your foot. You'll also never write extremely fast code.
Passing around objects isn't very efficient. Raw pointers is very helpful for say any console running a risc processor. (load/store) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reduced_instruction_set_computing
Especially when you have broken services/daemons sitting in the open running vital public services, you should definitely use multiple layers.
For general users, going beyond the standard windows firewall really isn't that necessary if you have a decent NAT (which I assume most everyone does these days still on ipv4)
Only rely on trust when you need access to things. Don't leave your fly open.
I agree, we should reform education. Example: Take all the money for Physical Education and force people to run outside and get fit normally. Use the surplus in funds and apply it to actual learning classes.
I still don't understand why people think they don't need classes even if they were to become some sort of athlete star. Too bad they didn't take classes to know how slim the odds are of that happening.
Ugh! CSI != science. If you'd said Nova or something to do with PBS I might have agreed. CSI is drama with a side of drama-whoring.
That'd work if the question was: How to start the biggest flame war ever?
For public school situations take that damn football money and use it for science classes.
2nd Hire decent teachers that actually enjoy learning and teaching.
3rd Encourage questions. Ask the students questions, and then wait for a response. Let them actually think! Have some actual communication.
Optional: go places! Take students to new environments to get them to think outside of the box. Science is awesome, you don't have to dress it up to make it fun!
All else fails: Blow shit up! Then explain why it blew up!
Exactly the question that should be asked.
People try to sell skin as adspace, I think similar arrangements could be made here.

Dude Jack, stay the hell out of Utah. I don't want you polluting our pool of already somewhat interesting people. You've already been disbarred, and no one should ever take you seriously. However, most people don't recognize this and they need to know that you're full of shit. Seriously, Stop trying to ruin everything for everyone. It only takes one, and you're approaching infinity of retardation. Please just go live in some communist nation.
(They probably wont post it because I used the words hell and shit)
I emailed the editor citing that issue. Hopefully, someone is awake?
Small retailers in the Canadian market have had to make innovative changes to stay alive: slashing staff, paying for assembly by the piece, negotiating bulk orders from vendors, and emphasizing customs orders for the geek market — but still its a struggle. Is the loss of the local neighbourhood computer store the inevitable outcome of the market, or will something valuable be lost if they all go down the tubes?"
