your friend is lazy as fuck, i regurally do that shit, a house framing and foundation is 1 week(2 days for framing), coming from an architect
Don't be a dick. If you're really in the construction business you know that speed of construction is a function of design complexity, the amount of talent and resources thrown at the build, the ability to organize those resources, timing of material delivery and a random "luck" factor. Have 20 talented construction people working full time on a 500 square no-feature efficiency and yea, it's done quick. Put a couple software engineers with limited experience and a mom with 3 kids to work finishing a 2500 square house, part-time, and it will take longer.
The only website I have this problem with is Slashdot, which wants to cover the top 3rd of my web browser with an ad.
It happens to me all the time on Ars when viewed with Chrome on an Android. The cause is not the initial load; it's the carousel advertisements "above" the current view. When they change size everything adjusts it's position. I get completely lost. Which, in my case, is like selling coal to Newcastle.
And don't get me started on the CPU cycles needed by all the advert videos playing somewhere "off screen". My S7 starts to feel more like an S zero point five. The does not help my browsing experience nor does it entice me to support the advertisers -- the opposite in fact.

I'm not sure about this. You seem to be suggesting that he should have yielded to authoritarianism without being able to state his case. I kinda get it -- he who runs away lives to fight another day. Maybe. Yield to the dictator du'jour. Acquiesce to those in charge simply because they are "in charge". The people have no power. I don't particularly like where this is heading.
I'm trying to imagine the response if it had been an elderly black woman or a man wearing a ghutrah.
... there are no immediate plans to offer similar protections to families of ordinary means, despite a recent survey by the firm Accenture that found as many as 1 in 4 Americans has been the victim of data theft...
I think they mean because a recent survey... Etc. It doesn't do the shareholders any good to be paying claims to 25% of your clients.
It is much harder to find a job than to keep one.
