Comment Re:Islam is a Problem (Score 0) 1011

When 40% of Muslims living in Britain want Sharia Law (Sharia Law includes death for those who insult Islam)

and the 60% that don't, what happens to them?

When 25% of all Muslims living in Britain support the 7/7 attacks

and the 75% that don't, what about them?

Then it is obvious that Islam has a real problem and is a real threat to the civilized world.

Obviously why? because percentages? Here's one for you: Muslims make up 23% of the worlds population. That's 1.6 BILLION. And here you are condemning them all because of statistics from a country that houses 64 million of the world's population.
It's ludicrous.

Liberty U is very tolerant of other views - as are most Christian Schools - being a core element of their beliefs.

From every job listing for Liberty

Disclaimer Statement: Liberty University's hiring practices and EEO Statement are fully in compliance with both federal and state law. Federal law creates an exception to the "religion" component of the employment discrimination laws for religious organizations (including educational institutions), and permits them to give employment preference to members of their own religion. Liberty University is in that category.

That particular entry I pulled out at random was for a Network Engineering job. If you aren't a Baptist you can't even plug in network cables there. I've personally known people who have lied about their religion to get a job there, and people who got rejected for being Catholic. Employees sign a "Way of Life" contract.

Tolerant my left nut.

Comment See! Some people DO read ToS/EULAs (Score 2) 57

I once put the following into a ToS on our branded Internet Explorer CDs for a dialup ISP I worked at:

By accepting this agreement you agree to pay $1,000,000 US Dollars. Please submit payment in full immediately. If you read this, please email me at and let me know you actually read this. You are one in a million.

Never saw a dollar nor an email. :(

In case you are also wondering, MST3k stands for Mystery Science Theater 3000, an American comedy science fiction television series (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mystery_Science_Theater_3000).

It would have been good to see the acronym expanded at least once in TFS...

well THAT made me feel old, but WELCOME to my lawn!
