Comment They do exist (Score 1) 453

There are computer "nerds" who aren't stereotypical. I agree, more needs to be done to encourage these people to emerge, but there certainly are some cool nerds out there....Infact I skydive regularly and as a part time job I do fashion photography for various commercial sectors. So we do exist, but there's nowhere near enough of us!

Are you kidding?

Many European cars fail American crash safety standards.

Are YOU kidding? Its more like many US cars fair EUROPEAN safety standards. You don't even have ncap safety ratings for your cars. Tests performed a few years ago showed that the avarage european drives a car thats almost twice as safe in a carsh as an american car! Just because your cars are bigger, dose not make them better.

Freedom of the press is a vital tennet of our society

It is, but yet again we see the nanny state that is our UK government grovelling to shutdown servers that they deem 'innapropriate'. I for one am sick of wasting my tax on causes like this. Why can't the UK do something productive, get up off its arse and spend my tax on the economy, or maybe on catching REAL criminals!

This is one of the reasons I'm leaving the UK in favour of Switzerland or such like once I graduate. I'm sick of this big brother, overprotective, nanny state!
