Comment Re:One thing still wrong... (Score 1) 259

Hell, its getting worse and worse today, as that it is getting to where a majority of modern females not only are overweight and obese, but we are NOW actually telling everyone "this is ok"

In West Africa and much of the Pacific Islands, men have a preference for obese women. In fact, the oldest beauty standard statue we have is a fairly obese woman.

Personally, I'm attracted more to less obese women, but I don't pretend that it's some product of millions of years of evolution so I can feel superior about it.

Comment Re:For the US, not for a political party (Score 2) 895

I voted for Trump, because I can't stand the Clintons. I'm not for Trump, or for the Republican party. I'm for the US - I want good government.

You want good government, so you voted for someone who has no idea how to run a government and who has all the subtlety and diplomatic skills of an angry rhino in a china shop; and all because you have some childish dislike for the Clintons.

Perhaps you should rethink your strategy next time.

Sure. Now you just have to get everyone to agree on a version number scheme and get all the vendors to coordinate with Microsoft to make sure their version numbers are in sync.

(The problem is, what happens if the Microsoft driver version number is 4.6.13 and the vendor's version number for their newer revision of the same driver is 2.9?)

conservative parts of America tolerate Silicon Valley "because people there just don't have that much sex. They're not having that much fun"
which translates to
Peter Thiel Thinks There's Not Enough Sex In Silicon Valley
Total non-sequitar. That aside, this is the single dumbest article I've not read on /. since Bennett Haselton was an "editor".

How are the anti-Milo demonstrators any different than the anti-Westboro baptist church demonstrators that follow them around? Counterprotests are part of free speech too. And aside from black bloc, those Berkeley protesters was peaceful.

We never did figure out a way to make sure no one beat up Westboro Baptist Church, but if you've got an idea, I'm open to it. Just remember, you can't control the people who show up to protest with you -- that's part of freedom too.

Comment Hard Numbers and Facts about STEM wages (Score 2) 660

According to ECON101, when demand outstrips supply, the price of a good goes up.

In this case, that means wages so I decided to take a look. According to the Federal Bureau of lagor statistics, STEM salaries grew at ~2% a year from 2013-2015 nationally. Meanwhile wages for "Computer Systems Design and Related Services" grew at ~2.3 a year. Inflation last year was 2.1% so if there is a STEM shortage, it must be very small.

In comparison if you are part of the ownership class, your NASDAQ index fund grew by 50%.

Anyone else have any good numbers to back up the anecdotes?

- Except those 7 countries haven't done anything to us, while other countries, such as Saudi Arabia (where most of the 9/11 hijackers were from) were not included. Funny, that
- Obama didn't ban current visa holders either, and just because Obama did something doesn't mean it's OK for the tiny-handed one to go further.

Were you present to call it a "Muslim ban" and throw shit at Obama when he did this?

Because what Obama did wasn't even remotely comparable. Try harder
