voting for a criminal in a twelve thousand dollar potato sack
No that wasn't a potato sack, it was the bag for my vacuum
But by voting third party, means that Trump will be favored, therefore you are actually helping him thus contradicting your purpose.
Not in Minnesota. If enough people voted for Johnson over Hillary so that this state went for Trump it would mean that the Libertarians would no longer be a minor party. Since everyone likes to say that the Libertarians take away from the Republicans more than the Democrats this would truly be a huge swing. If instead we assume that enough people vote for Stein in Minnesota that it turns the state to Trump it would again likely mean that they are not a minor party and would be granted automatic ballot access as well as matching funds in the next election cycle.
If I lived in a swing state I would likely have a very hard decision this year but as I don't I can say fuck off to the giant turds in the major parties and instead vote with a clean conscious for president. For those in swing states you will get to pick which authoritarian statist ass hole will be our leader, but at least you get to choose which rights get trampled on.
It will cost you significantly more to find a Linux PC with your desired specs, compared to buying a Windows PC and installing Linux on it.
Not really unless you are running some really strange hardware. For example my most recent main machine I just went and picked out the hardware I wanted based off of the specs and dual boot into windows or linux. The oddest thing in it was the combination PATA/SATA card that I bought because it was cheaper than getting a new DVD-RW drive and now that I have a bunch of hard drives in that box the extra SATA 3.0 ports are nice. The other slightly odd thing is that I have a 4 port serial card. I had more issues getting windows on that machine than getting linux on it and the Linux distro I am running is Slackware (13.37 at the time). That said the issue getting windows on it was I had to load the driver for the PATA/SATA card from USB during the install process. It was rather bizarre given that the windows install process had started from the drive that was connected to that card.
Even the most recent computer I bought doesn't care what OS I put on it. It was a Zotac Cl323 bare bones machine that I put a 120GB SSD and 8GB RAM into to make a beefy little pfSense firewall as it is a dual nic box. With the current version of pfSense the wireless in the thing doesn't work but it sounds like that will be fixed as the wireless works in the most current version of FreeBSD and pfSense is a version behind. Even there I don't care that the WiFi doesn't work because I won't use it on that machine and just disconnected the weird little card (it isn't a standard connection) as it saves a little on power consumption.
Now that just sounds way too fun to play with.
After all, American ideologues are still amateurs compared to the Soviet ones.
Of all the day to not have mod points.
That said the American education system is also rather good at making learning suck. Things like science, history, math, are all taught in the most boring way possible. I have frequently seen this with the kids in my son's scout den. Thankfully myself and the other den leader try to make learning a lot more fun and actually do things. For example in class the kids learned about the 3 different types of rocks and how they were made. In scouts we went and spent a couple of weeks on geology and found a bunch of rocks, examined them to see which of the 3 types they were, broke them open to see some of the structure, looked at them under magnifying glasses, put some in a rock polisher, etc. The thing the kids got the biggest kick out of was making our own rocks from ones we found. We melted them in my forge and poured it into some crucibles to cool at different rates. The next week we broke those new rocks open to see what effect the rate of cooling had on them with the grain size. We have done similar things for other topics in science, math and history so that they get to have lots of hands learning that also goes into more depth.
There was a CNN panel (yes, admittedly absurd sampling)
I remember seeing either an XKCD or SMBC comic on this subject where the punch line was basically:
