Hence, my claim that you are glorifying drugs is correct
You seem to think that's a bad thing. Why?
Perhaps you can read up on the definition and meaning of "Spiritual" while brushing up on basic logic.
Fun fact: I've never seen anyone who goes on and on about "logical fallacies" who has any background in logic. (Though many who are under the mistaken impression that they do! Like programmers who fancy themselves mathematicians, it's just self-delusion.)
Google "EEG computer mouse" or "Star Wars Force Trainer". If you can't stand Google, find anyone with an EE undergrad degree. Chances are, they or one of their former classmates has done something similar.
Yes, this technology is with us today, and has been with us for ages.
No, it's not reading your mind. That's just what marketing wants you to believe.
Good for you. Now try to do what I said you should try to do.
What about JS is harder to write, debug, and deploy?
This is the only point with any detail:
deployment seems to be more or less identical, just copy the file where you need it.
That's not how it works. Try this: Set up two different php applications on the same server, then do the same for node. You'll see what I mean.
it's a variant of Forth
People who barely know the language and are learning by Googling are in for a world of hurt.
Indeed. Look at what that did to you.
"Stockholm syndrome"? Ridiculous.
I've used Java for more than 20 years. I loved it at first, I even advocated it. I can't stand it today, and hate it more the longer I use it.
C, which I've used longer than either language, I'm still pretty neutral about. I feel about the same way about it now that I did when I first started using it.
Now, had you bothered learning the language before declaring it unsuitable for any purpose then you'd be able to offer legitimate insight in to the languages design, rather than pointless platitudes and allusions to amorous pigs.
Because being easy to use is a bad thing?
If harder is better, why don't we all switch to whitespace or brainfuck? All systems development will be in raw machine code and we'll use base 3 for added complexity.
We'll also start calling loops 'cycles' in honor of your great insight...
PHP is and was popular, because it was better than the alternatives. Imagine a world where JSP or ColdFusion came out on top...
Whatever warts the language might have, it's trivial to write, debug, and deploy. Those three things are more important than ideological purity or whatever it is that informs your opinion on the language when it comes to adoption and longevity.
To replace PHP, you need a language that is at least as trivial to write, debug, and deploy.
NodeJS, while it's the hot new trend, isn't likely to replace PHP as it's more difficult to write, debug, and deploy. Whatever benefits it might have, without those three factors, it's not likely to knock PHP out of it's little niche.
What an odd thing to say. I'm guessing you're not very familiar with the language.
It's unusual in that the language seems to get better the more you learn about it. Contrast this with Java, which seems to get worse the longer you use it.
Firefox added a warning a while ago. It's no surprise Google would follow suit.
Chrome is really turning in to a slow, bloated, spyware-ridden Firefox clone.

Print is cheaper than ever, thanks to countless print-on-demand services. You don't need to worry about over or under production, managing stock, or even fulfilling orders.
You could start your own monthly print journal, say The New World Journal of Slashdotic Trolldontia, and produce it for less than the cost of a domain and hosting. IIRC, with Amazon, it won't cost you a penny to have print copies of your journal (including an ISBN) available for purchase.
Junk, super-low-cost, hosting and domain will set you back $45/year.
what do the costs of a print journal work out to per paper carried? Now compare the cost of online publication.
Looking only at distribution costs, not production costs (which should be identical), that works out to $0.00 vs $45.00, for any reasonable number of articles per journal.
While readers would pay more for the print version, they could still get the entire journal, in print, for less than the cost of a single article, in PDF, from SpringerLink.
That's a matter of perspective, isn't it?
If we say that the system detects fraud, a false positive would be the system detecting a real result as fraudulent.
