p.s. the current win 8 experience has both testicles being torn from your body, or so my father said when he received a win 8 machine as an x-mas gift..

If you're a linux prophet, how do you know about windows and upgrading?

I ask this because pert damn near everyone I've worked with over the past 15 years knows that when you move to a new Microsoft release, it's a wipe and reinstall.

And just like Star Trek Movies, every second windows release sucks. XP was great, Vista sucked balls, win 7was ok, win 8 ran for goatse .

(p.s. - never upgrade until the second service pack for the release)

I can actually preserve food by canning, smoking, pickling and curing as well as hunt. I also have mason jars stockpiled.

So I'll raise the farming by one and have the shotgun ready for defense against soldier boy.

P.S. Be sure you want to be tough and steal, cause if there's a jar or two not prepped well, you'll just die from botulism when you run across it. It's called "insurance". :)

Seatbelts. another pet peeve.

You live in texas.

I live in Illinois.

In illinois, I can hop on my touring bike or street bike with a set of glasses on and no helmet.

Am I safer riding like that or am I safer in My Jeep Wrangler without a seatbelt on?

If I am safer in my Jeep Wrangler without a seatbelt on, why the hell is there a law making me put a seatbelt on on but not blocking me from riding a motorcycle?

Are you going to support removing motorcycles from the streets since they are less safe than a car?

If this post makes you think, why can't you support personal choice when it comes to the way they live their lives?

I illustrated your absurdity by being absurd, and it paid off.

You favor a damaging cost to society by not embracing the idea of extreme safety. You are willing to let people die so that you are not in a state of discomfort.

Yet, you ignore my desire to make my own choices in life.

Game/set/match. Let me know when there is a Jewish Pope.

No, they don't.

These "safety rules" are nothing more than special interest groups (to increase their profits) pushing an agenda that is popular with the mindless sheep that are happy to graze at a particular voting place, as long as they get their shiny toys paid for by the rest of the populace.

You are a substandard driver and expect everyone around you to have the same skills, and to avoid having to pay up for actual cost of the technology that is required to keep you as a safe driver, you need others to pay for it.

Again, It should be the purchasers choice to up their safety.

Otherwise, screw all choices - everyone's car should be speed limited to 15 mph, with solid steel frames and roll cages, crash bumpers that are engineered to 100 mph crash standards, and require a nerf suit and DOT helmet to operate.

Otherwise, how dare you speak against it - think of the people that could be saved.

Also, as a programmer, I assure you that the code running your systems in the cockpit still has bugs. They usually won't show up until certain conditions are met - the old "Q:Why didn't you catch this in testing? A: Because it worked fine on my machine".

One good suit is worth a thousand resumes.
