Comment Re: Translation: More H-1Bs (Score 3, Insightful) 118

Hold on a second. A corporation is saying it can not find skilled local workers, so why the fuck do they not train some. So when anyone, has to go for that training, they have to take on a massive debt to pay for the skill corporations want to exploit. So why the fuck do the corporations get that skill for fucking free. Why are not the corporations paying for training, why are those cheap arse bastards, demanding that the government pays, or the individual pays. Whilst those self same corporations refuse to pay for training and to top it all off, what to pay lower wages to those individuals who pay for that training and in addition those self same corporations cheap on their taxes by offshoring profits in tax havens. The should take the D out of DNC and just have changed it to the CNC the Corporate National Convention.

Comment This is why we shouldn't work with women (Score 1, Troll) 388

The fact that women can and do tear down entire, functional and productive organizations and destroy mens careers like this with some tears and stories is why they shouldn't be allowed to participate in the first place.

If he assaulted you, you should be down at the police station with wounds you received defending yourself. If you didn't defend yourself, then quit asking us to take your claims of assault seriously.

This shit has to stop. These bitches need to start being publicly identified and shunned, along with the organizations that coddle them.

Might as well ask if they'd like to lose their pilot's license. They're required by law (and ethics) to always be prepared to take control away from the Autopilot, in a fraction of a second.

So what is the purpose of autopilot then? Specifically, what is the purpose of autopilot when it doesn't prevent you from running broadside into a truck?

it should die. just end. it has its long run, it faded from what it was supposed to be about and now its a facade, at best.

just end it. boycott it, interfere with them, cause them annoyance. they need to learn they don't own concepts so wide as they claim.

but please, just end this. risking world health so more advertising can be sold? just nuke us all from orbit, if we can't seem to end this absurdity.

too much BS. I hope you don't believe that. we don't (and I'm sure I speak for a lot more than myself).

what do you mean "IF he lied". he's a published known on-the-fucking-books liar. time and time again. he has more holes in his stories than swiss cheese. (this guy is quoting comey to me. wow. and he thinks that's a defense of some sort. double wow.)

I see no reason to trust apple on their word. and what they SAY - who cares. at the end of the say, they con us, many of us believe them, they have whatever agreements with full 'we will make your life a living hell' NDA they all signed (not literally, I hope) and no one is allowed to know. they make more money than god and their story is working for them. god bless them, I guess! but I don't believe one word of anything any of those guys say. I have no reason to believe that HONESTLY is in anyone's vocabulary - who is at that level, at least. simply not something they even care to practice. they say things to get things done and to get what they want. this is the personality that we put in charge, all the fucking time! don't you understand?

believe what you want, but too much is at stake to just trust talking heads who make billions of dollars on their story. life has many levels and black/white thinking is not helpful in most cases.

Forgot to mention. The car instructions say AutoPilot is not to be used where there are crossroads. In the Florida instance in question there were crossroads.

"Not to be used where there are crossroads, trucks painted a light color or other vehicles of any kind."

This is Elon Musk's "You're holding it wrong!" moment.

Comment Re:It's not money... not unlike US green back (Score 1) 150

Your delusion levels are high.

Tell you what: pull out $100 US anywhere in the world and see if you find any takers. THAT'S how much credibility the US treasury and the Federal Reserve have. I've got a 500,000,000 dinar note from when Serbia was in hyperinflation (Nicola Tesla's picture!) and people were burning them for fuel. That's never happened, and will never happen, in the US (with a particular caveat mentioned below).

Right now, Euro bonds are paying negative interest. At least at the moment, the dollar is still king worldwide.

Now, if a certain vulgar talking yam becomes president, that might change, but for now, everybody wants dollars. Even the silly fuckers at Infowars are putting money into US treasuries. Alex Jones will blow you for $20 US.

Comment Typos (Score 1) 15

If you're referring to the book, I took great pains to leave the stories as close to how they were presented in the magazines as possible, leaving typos in. One story I got from Gutenberg had typos edited out, I re-inserted them. Five of them were printed in the bound versions of the book and PDF from cleaned-up scans of the original stories. I saw three in Leinster's story.
