Comment Re:1st programming. self taught basic in 1976 (Score 1) 515

Oh yeah? Back in my day, we didn't have any of that fancy modem stuff. I had to punch holes in cards and wait in line to run a program. When our school finally got a computer with a screen, it was always snowing. I remember...programming was uphill. Both ways...but we were happy back then. Kids these days don't know how good they've got it.

Yes, I agree. If a country increases in size, it should be able to increase the size of its capitol. Bigger country, bigger building. Abolishing capitol gains would eventually result in mismatched building/country ratios, forcing leaders to compensate by inciting wars or worse yet, taxing capital gains.
