Comment cameras and physical privacy (Score 1) 111

When I read the title I was thinking of cameras and such - until I read all the cyberprivacy stuff.
It seems to apply to that too.
Since poor people need to go through public places to get to food stores, private, they need to go through 2 sets of cameras.
"You have no expection of privacy in public," and, "It's private so they can do whatever they want," statements are used.

A poor person can't hire someone else and must go themselves and hence be caught on camera.

Now first I do agree that Booth was a patriot; I mean he was a good actor.
I also agree with him, and appearently you, that Lincoln was a tyrant.
I even think that he was one of the worst presidents.
Everything he did was either immoral or illegal.
IMHO it would be better if there were 2 Americas.

Now why do you ignore ALL opinions of anyone who disagrees with you on one idea.

Comment why homework (Score 1) 278

Why do we need homework anyways?
Is it because the teachers are lazy?
Because the school day is not long enough?

What, other than school, needs some sort of homework?
Most jobs don't.

Like most /.ers I am smarter than more.
I often, even in elementary, did it the following morning.
Once I even waited 'til studyhall a few hours before class to do it; how did that particular HW help me?
I liked that I overheard someone else saying they didn't even collect it.

Comment geneforge (Score 2) 669

I just played Geneforge 1 again, this time with a guardian, though only on tricky diff - 3/4. :(
I play "mini games" from a guy named Simon Tatham.
He just reprogrammed older games he didn't invent.

I don't play MMPORGS or whatever.
I have installed Civ4 but didn't play it for a few months.
I also got Braid and Witcher from Steam.

I am not playing as much since I am programming as well.

Personally I think that the sheriff there is one of the most evil people in America.
If you take his power into consideration then he is more evil than everyone else by far, even putting Bush into the lot.
I feel sorry for you for being in the area of the hating, bigoted person and especially for begin unusally punished by him.
