No one is required to cast a vote for everything on the ballot. Not voting for a certain office/question/proposition/etc is called an "undervote". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Scratch that. Looks like most states have restrictions.
OK, it turns out that it's only some, not most, jurisdictions that restrict write-ins. Here's an informative page:
Note that there are seven states which do not allow write-ins for president at all.
> In the US you can always write in a candidate of your choosing. Now, some people like to protest vote for Mickey Mouse, or various other inanimate objects. However if you were to vote for someone who was eligible to run who was not on the ballot, and they pulled in more votes than anyone else, they would be the winner.
YMMV. In many jurisdictions (if not most) there is a list of pre-qualified write in candidates. I shit you not. Google "qualified write-in list" (with the quotes) for a bunch of examples. Sure, you can write in anyone you want, but if they are not on the list, it will not get counted.
Here is one example, from San Francisco: (http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2012/11/05/18725142.php)
For voters who wish to cast their vote for candidates other than the ones printed on the ballot in San Francisco-- they need to know that they are still limited to a few official write-in candidate names if their vote is to be counted.

I have no doubt you actually believe that horseshit. That statement makes some of the more hilarious proclaimations Christians are so fond of saying seem rational and reasonable in comparison.

Below the line are languages that are more popular on GitHub. Above the line are languages that are more popular on Sewer Overflow. There's a distinct difference. The "GH" languages tend to be systems languages (Go/Rust/D) and CS favorites (Haskell/OCaml/Erlang). The "SO" languages tend to be more lightweight and application-specific - Visual Basic, Matlab, ColdFusion. "Assembly" seems to be an outlier, but other than that the pattern seems pretty consistent. Conclusions about the audiences for the two sites are best left as an exercise for the reader.
I hear that. I have 1mb/s myself, although it is not shared. If I see one more nimrod here bitching about "ridiclously absurd upload speeds of 25mbs" or some such, I think I'm going to have to shoot somebody.
TFA article says nothing of the sort, actually. It's TF submitter. Slashdot, of course, simply copy-pastes anything Hugh says.
If you think weather forecasting is easy, let's see some of your forecasts. A forecast which has been substantially correct for New England and merely didn't extend as far south as had been expected only underscores the difficulty of the exercise. Occam's Razor suggests that no cause beyond "honest mistake" need be posited. I know some people like to take every opportunity to prattle on about government overreach, but you're *really* stretching that fabric too thin this time. Get a grip.
Beyond the fact that I was obviously referring to Slashdot calling it a "mini-internet", the article said no such thing. They said that they can't keep it secret. Not that they "do not wish" to keep it secret.
AP Headline: "Cuban youth build secret computer network despite Wi-Fi ban "
Slashdot: "Young Cubans Set Up Mini-Internet".
"Mini-Internet" huh, Slashdot. My how far this site has degraded, when the mass media's headline are more accurate and less pandering.
So, from "this isn't to say that we should throw intelligence out" you conclude that they want to throw intelligence out? Truly, you have a dizzying intellect. I can see that you enjoy playing "devil's advocate" (to use the more polite term) but when you have to try so hard that you make yourself look ridiculous maybe it's time to find a new game.
