When your country has a GDP of $14.5 trillion a year, and you've got $15 trillion in debt, You need to raise taxes and you need to reduce spending on things you can limp by without, and pay off that national debt
Blockland is a non-competitive multiplayer online sandbox game where players can build with interconnecting plastic bricks which are similar to, but legally distinct from, legos.
"I've asked [Jobs why he didn't get an operation then] and he said, "I didn't want my body to be opened...I didn't want to be violated in that way," Isaacson recalls. So he waited nine months, while his wife and others urged him to do it, before getting the operation, reveals Isaacson. Asked by Kroft how such an intelligent man could make such a seemingly stupid decision, Isaacson replies, "I think that he kind of felt that if you ignore something, if you don't want something to exist, you can have magical thinking...we talked about this a lot," he tells Kroft. "He wanted to talk about it, how he regretted it....I think he felt he should have been operated on sooner."
Which means that the Steve Jobs Reality Distortion Field ultimately claimed the life of it's creator.
Of course, another way would be to bootstrap by writing yourself an assembler in machine code, then a compiler for the source language of that compiler in assembly (using your self-written assembler), and then use that to compile the compiler you got in source (and to get an optimized compiler, compile the compiler with that compiler again). But again, few people have the resources to do so.
I challenge that this is as hard as it sounds. The bootstrapping homebrew compiler doesn't have to be fast or efficient, and doesn't have to produce fast or efficient code, it only has to be *correct* the one time you use it. You'd then use it to compile gcc, which to my understanding is implemented using only C (not c++) features.
So time to bootstrap a correct C-compliant compiler? In my arrogance, I bet it could be done in 6 months by a few dudes in a garage. Which if you're in a field that needs bulletproof compiler trust, is a small investment.
I'm talking about something important to me here, and I'm not eager to be attacked and labeled because of it. I seriously considered posting AC because the comments so far look like a roving lynch mob...prove me wrong.
As an aside, I believe strongly that the first amendment is a good idea. I do not agree with the law which was pushed by California. I play lots of video games.
I'm not trying to talk about that, though, I'm trying to give my insight about the repeated comments of 'How can you complain about sex when clearly you don't care about violence'.
There is a gap between the person that I want to be and the person that I am. I absolutely believe that everything you see and think and do is slowly turning you into a different person. I try to choose entertainment that doesn't move me further from the person that I want to be.
Encountering profanity makes me want to swear more. I do not appreciate this.
Sexual depictions makes me want to have sex with someone, even if they are not my wife. I do not appreciate this.
Violent depictions currently do not make me want to go kill something. I therefore don't account it as particularly damaging...perhaps I am wrong.
The idea that my discomforts should change what you get to have is one that I'm unclear on my opinions towards. For the purposes of this post I'm only trying to demonstrate that people can put different weights on different types of content and not be stupid.
Please stop acting like everyone who does so is stupid.
