Comment Re:Senator Obama on raising the debt ceiling (Score 2, Informative) 305

However, when Obama was a senator, the administration had turned a budget surplus into a budget deficit. That was the result of reckless spending on tax cuts and wars.

That contrasts with the current administration which was given a large deficit to start with (made worse by declining tax revenues due to the recession) that has cut government spending.

1/16th isn't a standard fraction of an inch.

That may be, if you've never owned a ruler with inches.

In reality, a typical ruler has 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16, and those are what people will use when denoting length. No one uses "mils" in the real world.

At first glance I saw the big top thing with all the useless links and "topics" and thought "Wow look at that waste of space". Then I looked at the current slashdot and realized all that stuff is essentially there and takes up the same amount of vertical space. Maybe it's just the relative waste of vertical real estate while they limited the horizontal size, but it seems much more obtrusive.
