Just to clarify about the lock, it was welded to the bike's frame. It might have been possible to get extra copies of the key made though, but that seems like insurance fraud. (IANAL)
I'm afraid I don't understand what your point is. That people should realize medicine isn't perfect? Most folks probably do realize it, but like the feeling of hopefulness. Or are you calling for increased public funding?
I don't think there's anything wrong with being a slut either. I do think making promises of faithfulness to one's partner(s) and then breaking them is wrong (mutually renegotiating the rules is fine of course).
I agree with the moral bit, but what about insurance? My stolen bike wouldn't have been covered if I hadn't presented all three keys as rudimentary proof that the bike was locked. (The key wouldn't come out while the lock was open.)
Is it wrong to cite the bad choices that a rape victim may have made, in a specific circumstance, like getting blackout-drunk in a semi-private party while surrounded by people that the victim might not know very well, when the nature gathering itself has helped whip up those in attendance into a higher state of sexual interest?
I think it's definitely wrong when talking to or about a specific victim. They feel horrible enough already.
On the other hand, such talk probably has a useful place in rape (or violence in general) prevention education, for example. The advice can do good only when given in advance.
I'm a dreamer too, but absolutely secure yet seamlessly usable remote storage seems as likely as peace on Earth and goodwill towards everyone.
I suppose you don't mean to imply that the fact he was there because of his job makes any difference? Would you shift the blame in other circumstances? Or am I misunderstanding you?
I wonder where the victim blaming comes from; I admit it's often my first thought until just a moment later a more rational part of the brain catches up and tells me I'm being unfair and wrong. Luckily I don't open my mouth in between.
What's the rest of your hardware like? GTX 660 doesn't need anywhere close to 1 kW, I'm doing fine with a 450 W PSU (also powering an i5-2500 CPU and one hard drive). Seems more likely that your previous PSU was just a very low quality one.

I don't browse at -1 either, but doesn't it mean we both choose to allow moderators to censor what we see in order to not be offended by a post's content?
This will sound like the "nobody cares about Jews" joke, but how does leftist fit in there? Desire for increased social equality seems Christian to me.
If you've upgraded in the last ten years you very likely have a 64-bit CPU. Athlon 64 machines probably can be had for free. From a quick search it also seems that Windows license allows you to choose either 32 or 64 bit version. I realise 64-bit computing wouldn't benefit your parents, but it doesn't require you to hop on an upgrade treadmill.
Considering that half of the world's population has to live on a mere few dollars per day, you're right most people can't afford the bandwidth.
I'd like to hear from someone who knows their stuff better than I do. Is this sanians_imaginary_ptr feasible in C and how would it technically work? Without sacrificing optimisations C allows, low-level access and things like that.
There's no reason to think he killed anybody. That's also why you or I aren't involved in a murder investigation right now. The police can't know for sure we didn't kill anyone. That doesn't mean they don't care. You think what he wrote is a reason to think he killed somebody; I don't.
