Comment As someone from Oklahoma... (Score -1) 561

I will say this is pretty much the norm. The place is pretty much overrun with following:
  • meth addicts
  • Pew jumping pentecostal meth addicts
  • Baptist meth addicts
  • Jehova's Witness meth addicts
  • Hippy newage christian rock meth addicts
  • 15yr old pregnant girls sleeping for meth favors
  • Farm fires caused by meth
  • Several Native Americans waving dreamcatchers and staying in $1mo government housing so they can afford meth and fire water

I remember my mother's church condemning "Magic Eye" books as a subliminal message medium. I lost a lot of cool books that day. :(

It's not a useless or inane comment. I visit Slashdot to read tech news, not to read how Joe Blow should deal with a huge chunk of keys. Someone needs to point out that a lot of us don't care about junk articles like this and that they shouldn't even grace the front page. If anything stick it in Idle.

Comment Re:Agism rears its ugly head again (Score 2, Insightful) 359

I agree that not all discrimination is bad; however, the original poster is clearly referring to agism by young programmers as a bad thing, then following up with sweeping statement that all young programmers are worthless right after graduating.

I am not trying to argue that experience has no worth or that older workers have don't issues getting jobs due to age; however, I am stating that the original poster is spewing as much crap about young programmers as the young programmers he is referring to spew about old programmers.

Agism: Discrimination based on age.

Opening line on the post referencing agism: "Young programmers always say things like..."

More: "Once they work for a while, get bitten a few times by their own crappy code, learn a few things, and realize just how worthless they actually were right after they graduated...they change their tune. It never fails."

Hypocrite much? You sound just as bad as the young programmers you are condemning.
