He didn't mean that "some" rapists are crossing the border. He meant that generically the Mexicans crossing the border are rapists, but "some" are good people. This is textbook hate speech

"Some" is a very fuzzy quantity--more than "several", less than "most." Some + some = all.

Or for example, "Some U.S. citizens are murderers." Completely true. But pointing that out isn't hate speech because they're in the majority, apparently.

I have 16GB and when clamscan automatically kicked on (Linux anti-virus scan)

Why are you running a virus scanner on Linux?

it ran out of memory and was logging out of memory errors as fast as the hard drive could take it. The same message over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over. Took me four hours to track it down because all your programs start crashing when they can't write their little temp files and it wasn't using a lot of CPU. I didn't want to restart because I had something open I needed to save.

Ran out of memory, or ran out of storage?

Running out of actual memory is fun, too--the handful of times it's happened to me on Linux, nothing actually crashes; it just stops. I could still switch between different open windows, although the screen started painting. Could still run terminal commands but trying to tab-complete would just spit out a bash error :) Trying to recall from memory how to call up a list of processes and kill them via the terminal (because no memory to open task manager) without autocomplete was fun the first time.

Good thing nobody has ever complained about them legislating from the bench before, then. If we want our judges to just create the laws we could save a lot of money by firing all those redundant legislators.

Their rulings might be legally binding. They may also be wrong.

The Supreme Court gave its opinion on the matter. We still don't have anything written in our founding documents or laws on the book saying the same thing as far as I'm aware, i.e. there's no given procedure for seceding but there's also no explicit prohibition on doing so.
