WOW..talk about a massive over-reaction gone wrong!
you just turned a witty one line quip into something it wasn't!
that popping noise must've been you spitting your dummy out!
let's look at what I typed again shall we?
"some people have a short memory , eh fanboy? ;P"
now, from what i gather when you put the ";P" at the end it indicates a joke,a witty quip.. you get the gist!.. now why don't you remove the pompous, wilful misinterpretation hast off and stick your dummy(comforter) back in that you spat out, looks like you need it buddy!

Yes, it is true that people that use their system's default browser tend to be dumb. These people are statistically poorly performing employees, and some companies avoid hiring them. So even if you use MSIE or Edge as your browser, you should use something else when submitting your resume.

Fascinating. Sounds exactly like the kind of positive reinforcement I would love to believe.

"A study of 20,000 workers showed that more honest people tend to perform better and stay at the job longer. For some reason, however, they make less effective salespeople."

So where is the study? Who did it? Was it the author with ants?

I hate these things, they never work as stated. All it means is they can save money by buffering ahead even less. Days past if you had a poor connection you could load a video and pause it and it would buffer through. Now if you pause it buffers what it seems to think is all you actually need. It never is.

You are presuming the unlikely case that her claims are accurate just because she made them. That is foolish.

Nope, let me say again that on individual cases such as this, I have no input.
I am talking about the Culture Of 'Pervasive Harassment' being proudly displayed in the comments on this thread.

MY father always said.. If you want to go anywhere and take money from people then it's only polite to speak the language
you MUST be able to communicate on a basic level and Uber are just being sphincters as usual...
My father learned the language from scratch when he came here , those who come now should do the same or quite frankly bugger off!

there is a shitton of evidence

Blog posts are not evidence. If you are aware of any actual evidence point it out.

Evidence on individual cases? I don't know, but it's really easy to believe when you just scroll up and read the AC comments here, denying it all with spite and bile, ironically undermining their own arguments. It would be funny if only the hate filled bilge wasn't so sad.

French revolution, which the article surprisingly glosses over, had a number of factors, one of which was inequality. I suspect that's the case in all these examples. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

I call bs on anything that uses words like 'The only thing....'
This isn't a TV show, so simplification becomes an exercise in cherry picking to prove your point.

So this is nothing I need to bother with ever really as i doubt I will have a reason to travel to any country not on the feel at home list.

I'd argue that RT is about as bad as the others but generally uses higher register language than the far right press. A big mistake may be to read all believing the truth lies somewhere in the aggregate, when frequently they are all just not true.

And yes, I am aware of the irony of citing a news source.

Comment Re:Still Not AI (Score 1) 62

That really depends on how you define AI. If you want to define AI as purely something that can hold a realistic conversation with you then no, it's not. However if you agree that a machine that demonstrating the ability to learn from examples then I'm sure many would argue this is a form of AI, but that's why why careful people describe it as machine learning instead. Just like intelligent search was often called AI in the past by the press.
