Comment I Looked at System76 (Score 4, Interesting) 126

...when I sent my daughter off to college last Fall. Figured it might be nice for her to have someone beside Dear Ol' Dad to call if she had some complicated Linux problems (she can handle the simple and medium problems). Then I saw how much they were charging! Could not justify the expense, even with whatever phonecall time it might save me. Bought a Lenovo and had her roll her own OS into it. She, and my wallet, are both way better for it...

You're right. Instead of putting his name in the press release, Elon should reference the idea as having come from Pakit Cherniabiyia, the lead developer at the third-party firm overseas who is handling Tesla's AI research. That's sure to result in lots more press interviews and investments. Good thinking...!

I am.

But you're apparently not familiar with basic Christian theology. See, the Old Testament is only part of the Christian bible as it provides the prologue on what is a millennials-long story arc. Mosaic Law (which over-wrote the Code of Hammurabi etc.) is itself over-written by Christ's "Mosaic Anti-theses:" "Love your neighbor as yourself," "Do unto others..." "Let he without sin cast the first stone," etc. No Christian sect (again, outside the 40 people in the Westboro Baptist Church) follow OT writings as canon when they are specifically over-written by NT writings. That's sort of the whole focus of Christianity.

You Leviticus-citing anti-Christian Internet "theologians" are even more pathetic than the Internet "tough guys."

It's actually Sharia law -- Islam -- with the edicts that require gays to be stoned to death. The Westboro Baptist Church (membership: 40, per Wikipedia) is the only Christian sect that I know of that "wants to kill" homosexuals.

For the complete set of stats re which barbaric and medieval Islamic laws are still practiced today and where, see this link. Hopefully you are open to being educated and are not just a woefully ignorant bigot.
