Worst. Karma. Whore. Ever.
You actually replied, to the reply to a post, with exactly the same statement and quoted text? Wow, that must take some brass neck!

Oh wait... I thought you were joking!
The SHA1 of "badg3r5" really is "78a7ecf065324604540ad3c41c3bb8fe1d084c50".
HP used "badgers" in leet-speak for an NSA backdoor? Smells like they wanted people to know, to me. Maybe they didn't like what they were supposed to be doing, and stuck their tongue firmly in cheek at the implementation stage? "Screw the NSA - we'll give them a back door if they want it so much - and we'll make it so that researchers find it easily, so our business isn't damaged in the long term ("If we wanted you data so much, we'd have done a better job of hiding it - blame your government")
Unfortunately, I held out on actually registering, and have a rubbish UID as a result. I still see logical, rational and funny discourse, and I've got quite a loose leash when I post silly things to cause trouble - things could be a lot worse for me here, with the things I post sometimes!
I got the username I would have chosen though, I was webmistressrachel at Excite dot com while it was still going!
1,4Gb downloaded already, and only 11 Comments? What's wrong with this place?
Do you pray that one day, just one day, your program will compile and it will happen on the same day, or are you praying for someone else to do it?
You do realise that praying won't help you one bit, right?
What, 23 is cold??? You Yankee wimps, 23 degrees Celsius is warm for us Brits...
Fair points, and well argued, indeed.
Ritalin being speed - your post, followed by Wikipedia, just trumped all the people I ever met who were on Ritalin and told me it was chemically equivalent to amphetamine. I stand corrected.
Scientific basis - again, you are correct to ask, and again, only personal experience of both illegal speed users and their families, and people and their families of those taking Ritalin.
Thank you. Accepting that one has been misinformed or that one's statement does not constitute proof of something is the very basis of scientific discipline and rigour, and I can see now how I tripped up and pushed my opinion and those particular experiences a little too hard! Thanks.
Karma Bonus forfeited for obvious reasons, this post deserves nothing.
You missed the mark a few times.
Amphetamine is in the same Class ("A") as Cocaine because it's highly addictive.itself, therefore using it get off heroin is a mistake.
Second, I didn't take Ritalin as a kid - I'd rather be the person I am now, having been through what I did and grown strong and proud as a result. Ritalin (speed) literally numbs your emotions - which is why it's used as a "solution" for situations like the one above. Except, it's not. Solving systemic problems like bullying in schools and actually encouraging traits like intelligence a solution. Numbing that kid's pain in the short term, isn't. Thanks for listening, though.
because we all know the benefits of being addicted to amphetamines, don't we? Oh, we don't? I take it this means that no-one but me knows why "hyper-active" children are prescribed this stimulant.
Put it this way, the other kids took great pleasure in making me bleed (discreetly, quietly - a pencil in the hand, perhaps?) and laughing as I kick off and demand justice, only to be thrown out of class (again).
It may be simple, but it works, and I can take my SQL (pardon the pun) anywhere from there.
Don't underestimate simple, reliable data formats and methods. Look where all this commercially-driven proprietary crap, and the attitudes that have come with it which now prevail in other industries, I.e. software patents, waste, the environment is taking us...
