So, you are saying that if disagrees with the age of consent then he should join a street gang and kill someone?
Here you go, pal. You'll find free and fair elections as a central principle.
Also, doesn't Apple have a duty to shareholders to cough up as little in taxes as legally possible?
You should trying asking that to Tim Cook at a shareholders meeting and see what kind of response you get. Last time he was described as "visibly angry".
One that is clear, however, is that most mathematicians have no fscking clue what the word "obvious" means. There are some brilliant, dead authors that I would love to punch in the face.
I think that they know exactly what it means, but that you are confusing it with the non-technical meaning. In maths it generally means "I have managed to work this out, and I suspect that you will be able to (eventually) without my help. If you cannot, that I presume that you are an idiot and that you do not deserve my help". Contrast the meaning with the technical use of non-obvious: "Oh fuck, we're boned".
In general you should treat obvious things with care, and only skip past the trivial.
It's not particularly hard to fix: spin the viewpoint around the country. For the southern forecast a view from across the channel (pretty much what it is now). For Scotland spin round to viewing from the north, Wales from the west etc. This then has the benefit that whatever region is being discussed takes up most of the screen and the rest of the UK drops away in perspective.
Whoever they outsourced to is not just less smart that they think they are. They have gone full-retard.
And so the point of maintaining the blockchain with a record of where each coin goes is....
I think the summary was actually saying that Apple did NOT clearly spell out its support schedules like many other software companies DO. Rough quote - "this would not be noteworthy if Apple, like other software vendors, DID...."
So it's saying other software vendors DO do that, but Apple does not. Which is what you're saying. Can't we all just get along...
For all of Microsoft's failures, bad business practices (particularly in the past), etc., they seem to be doing some things right these days. I'm not too big of a fan of the new start screen (easily fixed)
Not exactly. Speed is of the essence.
I'm not sure if Science is phrenology by another name, but they certainly look similar at your level of detail:
a) Part of the task under study is definitely linguistic
b) No effort has been made to separate this linguistic part from the rest of the task
c) The study has not produced evidence because of a validity threat: namely the confounding factor that the task has been presented in a linguistic form.
I wouldn't want the terminology to get in the way of the original point: the task has been phrased in textual form, areas of the brain used in text recognition lit up, the researchers concluded that programming was the same as language skills. Their conclusion was bogus because presenting a non-programming task to the participants would have provoked the same response if it was done in written form. Obviously this would be impossible to fix in the study design.... without replicating the results on a non-textual experiment, such as a graphical language.
But on the bright side, it is unlikely that your negative views on continuing the human race will be passed onto another generation.
