agreed, ddg is my default as well. i also like the bangs feature, so I can type into my browser's search bar "alexander hamilton !w" and it takes me immediately to the wikipedia page for alexander hamilton without needing to deal with any annoying click throughs.
I don't need ddg for that, firefox keywords work just fine. Dunno about other browsers, though.
The truth probably lays somewhere in between
Eggs? Bricks? Or what exactly does truth lay in that "between" place?
We need a "Wow, that sounds impressive although I didn't understand a single word" mod option.
We pretend we do, but it was actually re-created yesterday after the reboot of God's Second Life server farm.
We should have a "-1, repetitive" mod option.
Obligatory HHG: "Presidents don't have power, their purpose is to draw attention away from it."
Jeez, I'd really like to meet this Cmdrtaco guy who carried out the strike on Iraq, arrested Saddam Hussein and won the presidency for Obama!
No. Children are underdeveloped and require a considerable amount of investment before they create value. Compared to adults where the investment has already been made and who now cannot pay it back, children are worth less.
So unless a child holds the promise of creating 'value' in the future, it is worthless to you? How about children with disabilities? Or old people who have spent all their 'value'? Or adults without any particular skill?
It is a great misfortune of modern Western civilization that power is concentrated in the hands of people like you - those who think economic value is the only value.
No need to feel inferior; it turns out twelve inches is more than enough to satisfy Dame Nature.
There are quite a lot of people, myself included, who released software while GPLv2 was current and feel that FSF went a little bit evil with v3. Even to the extent that I agree with Stallman regarding bad patents, I don't think it's right to retroactively pull that into a copyright license. To me, that's precisely the same as if he'd added "you lose your license if you vote Democrat". Democrats may or may not be a bad thing, but Stallman doesn't have a moral right to impose his views regarding political affiliation upon my software. I chose the license because I agreed with what it was - the position it took regarding copyright and secrecy. I allowed for "any later version" to allow for _revisions_, adjustments, to the wording. I didn't do that to allow Stallman and friends to attach their unrelated personal preferences to my work.
So don't release under GPL V3, and continue with V2. No one's forcing you to upgrade your license, so what imposition are you talking about?
So yes, some of the "rising 3rd world countries" like india and guatemala have some credit available but nothing close to the US where someone can buy a house on credit or get credit cards with limits that grossly exceed their annual income.
Wrong. Loans for purchasing homes have been available in India since forever. I live in Kolkata, India, in an apartment bought with money borrowed from one of the largest banks. The borrowed amount was about 6 times my annual income when I took it, about 5 years ago.
There was even one guy who had amnesia whenever you took it.
Hey, do you happen to know of any way to make this kind of spooky action at a distance work for exercising?
