They might not find any so we'll be left alone... Joking aside, they might have something akin to a Prime Directive, and we're not advanced enough in technology to be worth contacting, or not civilized enough (we're still trying to extinct ourselves)
No, seriously, what's different about 45-year old women? Sorry, but sounds chauvinistic to me.
Wow. Kinda harsh, I like you
I'm just not attracted as much to white women, but if I meet the right person I won't even care about skin color or hair color or anything else.
Sure, even if I prefer some types, I wouldn't kick one out of bed because of eye or hair color...
"it's possible to just not like anything but light skin, but in practice it's almost always just racism."
Not true. I'm caucasian and mostly date black women, asians and latinas. I don't care much for white girls. Does that make me racist?
" if it's just skin colour, that's terrible."
Huh? How is it different than hair or eye color?
1- No, the share still has a password.
2- They'll have to get through the firewall, IDS, VPN, you know the rest of the story...
3- It's not even on the same VLAN. (it's on BLUE, my LAN is on GREEN, and that machine is only accessible from authorized MACs/IPs). Yes, I have to authorize them one by one. (hint: the router is an appliance, not a dlink toy from Walmart). The only devices that are allowed to access that share are my phone, tablet and main computer, and only by VPN.
not all users are complete morons...
Depends on what you're using it for. The only reason my Media Center machine has a password is to enable media shares on it. It auto logins. The only things on it are recorded TV shows and movies, so no big deal if it gets stolen/p0wned.
Sure, there's a more direct correlation, but it's not perfect either. Some people might be unable to stand up at
I'm not saying reaction time won't be slower, but an experienced drinker might be able to hide it more. Besides, a good driver (even if slightly impaired) will be safer than a sober bad driver.
" A white suburban woman in a late model SUV doing 11 MPH over the limit will need a dashboard bong to get tested, a black man in a 15 year old Cadillac pulled over for the same offense will get tested."
Amen to that. Ex girlfriend driving her bimmer? driving while black. Me driving the *exact same* car? no problem whatsoever, she's just the dude's GF.
I dunno how it compares in other major cities, but in Montreal there IS such a thing as racial profiling...
"there are an awful lot of just plain bad drivers out there, and I'd suspect that most average and better drivers are still more competent mildly stoned than a lot of unimpaired drivers with poor skills."
Or cellphone using drivers, but those get a free pass here...
A friend of mine tested positive during preselection for clinical tests. very small amount, but still tested positive. All because he was at a party where people smoked the week before. What about if my downstairs neighbors smoke on their balcony? I'm gonna have traces too. There are no ways (yet) to measure the inability to drive based on THC in bloodstream. One could argue the same for alcohol, as me drinking 8 beers won't have the same effect as someone else drinking 8 beers, even if same BAC, but Ethanol won't stay in the body for weeks like THC. Besides, kinda hard to inhale second-hand beer compared to someone smoking next to you.

Last time I tried that in Simcity it didn't end that well
You know machines were shipped with only 512 RAM? I wouldn't even try that on my eeePC. First thing I did when I bought it was to swap in 2GB...
I know about Myth TV, but Media Center does everything I need it to do, even drives my VFD display using Media Center Magic, Been using it since MCE 2005. Yes I blocked every updates, but for Joe Six Pack it's gonna be a downgrade. GWX control panel can help, but not everyone knows about it.
Unless Microsoft gives me a way to use my tuners in win 10, I'm not upgrading.
