Don't you know Patrick Henry was a terrorist. If he was alive today he'd definitely be on the no fly list.

Exactly how many Londoners died from Patrick Henry's (or George Washington's for that matter) legions of suicide bombers? Sometimes "freedom fighters" are terrorists, sometimes they're fighting to take the place of the current nobility, sometimes they're fighting for freedoms.

You need a mobile with data plan to be in job search now. Recruiters don't wait, and neither do employers

Do you realize what the target demographic is in question? Recruiters don't recruit for McDonalds; all you do is as for an application over the counter and after you fill it out the shift manager will spend 10 minutes determining if you don't outright drool on yourself.

if Americans vote for trump it'll be simultaneously the saddest thing and the most fucking funny thing that has ever happened.

It will probably be more like when Ventura was elected governor of Minnesota except on a national level. Endless complaining by the establishment on both sides but not much coming of it by the end.

Copyright assumes some degree of intellectual effort, "something" created by an author or artist - with the focus on CREATED

Copyright law in terms of photographs, painting, drawings, etc, is long settled in favor of the person clicking the shutter or holding the pen, etc. Clearly what is in question is the images, not the actual cat's actual face. One if someone tried to put the actual cat's actual face on a bag of coffee, then your rant about a cat's face not being art might be relevant.

Canon puts the stabilization in the lens for a good reason. Sensor-based stabilization is only useful on point-and-shoot cameras or mirrorless cameras with electronic viewfinders

Well, I think the folks at Sony, who make fine DSLR cameras with sensor based stabilization, would disagree with you on this point. I suspect the GP is a Sony fan. I prefer Canon myself but I also stand by my assertion that either way is a legit method with different trade offs

how Canon manage to sell small megapixel non-stabilized sensors with low ISO today

Canon puts the stabilization in the lens instead of the sensor and that's a legit design trade off; I'm sure they're sad you don't agree. My Canon's ISO goes to 25600 in normal modes and 102400 in emergencies, how high do you want?
