Comment Re:School bus (Score 2) 240


I routinely walked the 2.5km to grade school or the 5.5 kms to high school, i even walked the 10.8km to cegep. When you're poor and you want an education you do what you have to.

I did live right in front of the municipal library, but being quebec i exhausted the english section by the time i was about 10. Well, not true, i didn't read all the charlie brown and garfield books they had, never really wasted much time on comics.

I think the distances of my schools is pretty interesting, and of course, my university is apparently 21.8km away, though by that time i moved to housing right beside university.

and about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a great voice, saying, 'Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?' that is, 'My God, my God, why didst Thou forsake(forget) me?'

My God! my God! to what sort of persons hast thou left me?

Ad quid dereliquisti me? "To what hast thou abandoned me?

Take your pick. Jesus only choose to follow god, it was god's plan though.

The Bible says that no sinner will enter the kingdom of heaven/God. In order to qualify for that, we would have to be perfect... literally.

Obviously there is no one that qualifies for that. But that's where Jesus comes in, because he lived out the law of the scriptures and torah *perfectly* to the very period. Every aspect, every trait, every characteristic, every element, every little tiny thing possibly imaginable about his life was lived *perfectly*.

Except that Jesus didn't follow the law perfectly. If he was without sin, why did he not pick up stones and stone the person as the law demanded?

The purpose of the Law is to remind of us of our sin, ignorance, arrogance, stubbornness, hate, lust, etcetera. That is the only purpose the Law serves now. It is important to realize that ONLY through Jesus' we are free and perfect (no, not our bodies as they are merely vessels in this world that God has given us to use for His glory, but our spiritual-side) and that we can do and are NOTHING.

Verily, verily, I say to you, he who is believing in me, the works that I do -- that one also shall do, and greater than these he shall do, because I go on to my Father

Follow the Tao you become the Tao.

Wasn't it pretty much the custom almost everywhere that marrying age was puberty? Besides, the younger a person is when they conceive the longer the telomeres. Although i don't know anything about the mormons except they're a bit more wacky then usual.

Why so much vehemence in your arguments?

The bible never says Jesus is a god, rather it says that everyone on earth are the sons and daughters of God.

I don't know why i'm responding, because obviously you've been indoctrinated by somebody who has never read the bible and neither have you. The trinity is an invention by the Catholic church which not all churchs agree with.

Right, virtual desktops. Personally never liked those things and don't use them, hence the reason for writing my own :) My view manager has workspaces which are a collection of tasks. Tasks can have different views on different workspaces, e.g. media player only displays scrolling song title/tags on most workspaces but shows albums, lyrics, equalizer, etc... on media workspace which can also be accessed just by clicking/touching a media view on any workspace

Well, minimize buttons could be added in my framework, but i know i won't do it, i don't even like title bars stealing my real estate. :) I kinda of like alt-tab to switch between workspaces (internet, coding, media, etc...) or just swiping the screen when in tablet mode to flip through them.

Just out of curiousity, do you actually use the minimize icon? Or do you use one of the key-combinations? Remember we're talking about the icons here, you can still hide windows. Second, why do you use minimize?

Personally, i'm all about choice which is why i'm writing my own window manager that can be customized however anybody want's it, using whatever keystrokes, mouse event, or gesture, which is why i'd be interested in why you use minimize.

Spoken like a true AC, drivel based on nothing.

What i said has nothing to do with Gnome, but how to use any windowmanager. You do know they are there to actually MANAGE windows right? If you don't know how to set it up so windows start where you want them and in the state you want them, then you're probably a windows user no? Why minimize something (except to look at the pretty graphics) when you can more quickly alt-tab it away? If it's a problem because you have multiple windows occupying the screen, learn how to organize your information into desktops. This is just complaining by people that haven't learned how to use the new abstractions and are caught in windows 3.1 stage.

but this won't happen because then we'll get to see what cops do.

From someone being on the receiving end of their activities and seeing it occur to my coloured friends, take my word they won't ever let this happen.

P.S. it doesn't matter that the police in my area discriminated using ethnicity and language, there is always something to discriminate upon.
