That's not necessary! If it's important enough, they'll post it twice!

See what I did there? All of the facts, none of the bias!
It's east of chili, duh.
Don't pretend that getting rid of Saddam was a good thing when you put him there in the first place.
And let's not forget the last time you tried to "help" Iran you ousted an elected leader, eventually leading to the current situation in Iran.
It's the "world policing" that got us here in the first place, so maybe it's finally time to step back and let things run their course.
I had forgotten about Neverending Story 3. Thanks a lot, asshole!
It's awfully close to the estimated world population.

How can this not have been diagnosed?
Hey, either way you should give him a break. At least he actually quoted it right... well, except the fungus part.
I don't disagree that Microsoft has cleaned up their act or that they're products have fewer vulnerabilities, but I wanted to clarify something.
The numbers you are quoting are discovered vulnerabilities, not vulnerabilities.
