Comment Re:In my opinion (Score 1) 346

i first learned HTML + CSS (which arguably isn't programming) Then I moved onto PHP and MySQL And finally JavaScript Learning C++ first in my opinion was a pain I tried looking it at it before I started programming at all and I was utterly confused (I was only 14 :D) But now I can easily grasp C++ thanks to all my experience with PHP and JavaScript

Not only you. The whole human species would be extinct by then. We have global warming, pollution, fuel shortage, wars, corruption. These are enough to finish us by 2100. What happens in 2182 is irrelevant.

Not really. The human race started off as a primitive ape like species. We managed to survive living in jungles, deserts and caves. How is "global warming, pollution, fuel shortage, wars, corruption" going to kill ~7bn people. Sure it might kill 3 billion or even 4 billion at the very worst (which is still unlikely) But there is no way any of the things you mentioned will kill every single human being.

I think he is referring to the USA rather than his own company. His excuse for using offshore labour is that he needs to do it to remain competitive. When are people going to realise that countries don't matter that much any more in the 21st century. We are all part of the same community and we all benefit from advanced in technology wherever they happen.

Is that the best you can do? ;P Islam is a vengeful and bloodthirsty religion (like most other religions) You get your arm amputated for thieving making islam brutal, barbaric and stupid. If somebody was poor enough to steal by amputating their arm you are not going to improve the situation. You get buried to your waist while your family and other locals throw stones at you, if you have pre-martial sex making islam brutal and barbaric. You get hanged for blasphemy which is stupid. You get hanged for apostasy (leaving islam), which contradicts the idea of free will, making islam hypocritical. Women are treated as second class citizens making islam a sexist religion.
