I skimmed the blog post but nothing jumped out as being offensive. Girl and boy took turns having difficulties. BFD.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Highly doubtful, based on history.
Without regulation, your body wouldn't function properly: Breathing, blood sugar level, metabolism, sleep, etc. Not all regulation is bad.
Traditional, majority sexual orientation is now a "stereotype"? And the solution is to disproportionately represent alternative lifestyles?
What else would be interesting: let this "worm" mate and see how it offspring adapt to their new body.
If you can't see the difference between the two situations and the social/privacy problems involved, you're not thinking hard enough.
This one sticks out in my mind: I was exploring a strange planet and noticed a shiny object on the sand. Should I leave it or pick it up? I chose to pick it up. The result was: you have found a [something] solar collector that has been lying in the desert for 50 years. You are instantly vaporized.
I used to love those Choose Your Own Adventure books when I was in grade school! Though I have to admit, I kept a finger or two between previous pages just in case I died.
Find a bunch of open source projects you're interested on Github (or whatever) and download them to your laptop. Then take some time to study the code.
Agreed. I would definitely bring something "just in case". Doesn't mean you _have_ to read it, but sure is nice to have if you get bored or need some extra mental stimulation.
Congratulations on getting a +5 mod on a completely content-free post.
I haven't had Firefox crash on MacOS or Linux in ages, and I use it all day every day. For me, it seems a lot more reliable than it used to be.
I'm not going to say I agree with all of Mozilla's decisions, but implying they lack "adult supervision" shows you know nothing about how they work. They are a very dedicated - if sometimes misguided - group. As for Mozilla Foundation, I couldn't tell you.
We got lucky with the last meteor strike in Russia. It came from one direction we weren't looking in - the direction of the Sun. Had the asteroid been of extinction-level size, we'd be history since we had no idea it was coming.
You need to balance the odds of something happening against the impact if it does happen: A miniscule chance of an extinction event matched against the annihilation of all life on Earth means it should be a high priority for our species to take steps to avoid that disaster. If we fail, we won't get a second chance.
I agree that defending Earth against an asteroid is a reasonable idea, but that will only help against objects small enough for us to handle with our current technology and also those we can detect in time to take action against.
If it was imperative that we leave Earth within 5 or 10 years, how would we begin? Let's do that. There is no certainty that we have more time.
At least, that's one way of thinking.
We need to stop taking sand for granted and think of it as an endangered natural resource
And all the animals and trees said: back of the line, buddy!
