As the old saying goes "We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias..."

But that's not true anymore is it? These "women" now exist on the internet, and as long as they keep trying to be "women" on the internet, people will call them out for it. People call "women" skanks because they fill their profiles with pictures of themselves looking like skanks. People harass "women" because they keep pointing out how unfairly they're being treated because they're "women".

There are now "women" in gaming, "women" in business, "women" fighting for "women" and more power to the "women". Why? If these "women" would just stop trying so damn hard, then there would be room for everyone.

But that'd mean having to compete with everyone else on equal terms, wouldn't it? The "women" wouldn't be able to rely on their pretty looks and the empowerment of other "women", and they'd receive no special attention from all the nerds on the internet. We'd all be equals, each anonymous entity carrying its own weight, relying on words to enforce their ideas. But we can't have that. Only "women" can be equal.

I hate hardware and for all intents and purposes it can go shove itself up its own ass. As a result I very much love the cloud, no matter how much of a buzzword it is. Let someone else worry about the tedious busywork it is to get one piece of hardware to talk to another. Oh what's that? A disk died? I don't give a damn because I don't have to drive 30 minutes each direction just to change it. Ha!

But why use a redundant unit of measurement that is, or is not, literally derived from the meter, depending on in which archaeic country you're in?

"Psah! The mile was first!" -You, in the future.

Yes, but your very own government decided in the 1950s to make an international standard, to which I might add only your government and country adheres, which defines a yard as exactly 0.9144 meters, and one yard gives three feet, and 5600-something feet give a mile (who the hell even bothers to remember such irrelevant details? Make it base-10 already). So your mediocre, confusing and derivative unit of measurement stinks. Go fuck yourself.

Yes and no. We may not be able to see the aliens right now, but you can't argue that we aren't getting more and more details. 2045 is still quite a while away, technologically speaking, and it's not unreasonable to think we'll have even better telescopes and measuring equipment by then.

It is wrong always, everywhere and for everyone to believe anything upon insufficient evidence. - W. K. Clifford, British philosopher, circa 1876
