Submission + - Naomi Klein finally admits Climate Change has never been about science. (

bricko writes: Liberal writer Naomi Klein’s new book on the environment, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate. The mask of Marxism is off. Klein admits progressive policies on the environment are really about what Marx and Lenin said the communist revolution desired 100 years ago — the overthrow of capitalism. This is not about science, or health, at all. “Our economic model is at war with the Earth,” writes Klein. “We cannot change the laws of nature. But we can change our economy. Climate change is our best chance to demand and build a better world.” Climate change has never been about science, only another attempt at Marxist upheaval.

Pumpkin Pie increases Male Sex Drive 173

Dr. Alan Hirsch, Director of Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center, says the key to a man's heart, and other parts, is pumpkin pie. Out of the 40 odors tested in Hirsch's study, a mixture of lavender and pumpkin pie got the biggest rise out of men ages 18 to 64.

I find it very interesting to note that mentions of so-called "Christians" killing one or two mass-murdering abortion doctors gets a higher score on slashdot than the mention of the mass murder of Christians in India. It really shows where peoples loyalties lie on this site, and their prejudices. With the exception of this and a few other articles, I usually will never even read the comments on slashdot articles because of the bigotry, prejudice, and general lack of many slashdotters. It is painstaking to get through the everyday garbage that any uninformed idiot can post here.

How can you have a monopoly in your market if you're not even the largest player?

I'd ask for a refund on whatever it was you spent on your "education."

Just as an aside, does anyone remember the old legal battles with Microsoft, simply because entwined IE with Windows. That sort of thing, low as it was, is nothing compared to what Apple is trying to do (I say trying because they will not benefit from this in the long-run)

Actually, developers do have the right to write in whatever code they like, they just can't ever sign the Development Tools agreement, and thus can't ever use Apple's tools. Would be like Windows programming without Visual Studio, but if that's the road you want to take, you can.
