Comment There will come a point... (Score 0, Flamebait) 801

...Shortly after Clinton gets elected, where she will basically throw up her hands and say,

"You know what? I am sick and tired of Republicans coming after me all these years. I'm sick of it. Time for a taste of your own medicine. Turnabout is fair play."

And I hope she encourages the DOJ, the FBI and others to go HARD after Republicans, Fox News, and other groups that have been going after her all these years. I really hope she does. Take em to court. Sue em. Open useless investigations that wastes taxpayer's money.

You go Hillary. Take it to em HARD.

Did the interviewers know the interviewee was a woman, just that she had a deep sounding voice? That may not be discrimination against women in general, but rather a discrimination against women with deep-sounding voiced, which is something else altogether.

"Interviewee technical score wasn't faring that well either -- men on the platform had an average technical score of 3 out of 4, as compared to a 2.5 out of 4 for women."

So is the implication here just that it's harder to find highly competent women in technical fields rather than men?

I need my iPhone to have a headphone jack. I love making DJ mixes on my phone. I use an app called dJay, which allows me to mix using my itunes library. I've gotten quite good, to the point where I will occasionally sit on the bus or at a bar making a mix, and I don't need a monitor, as I can tell where to start the mix using the waveforms of the song.

Anyway, this only works if the sound and screen animation of the song beats are perfectly in sync; if theres ANY delay, I can't mix. I have tried doing this by using a bluetooth speaker instead of headphones, and it never works. It's always off by some delayed amount.

If Apple actually does this, this is the one thing that will make me never want to upgrade. I know they would make dongles, but that adds other issues, such as what if I need to mix while having the phone plugged in because I'm running out of battery power? Anyway, don't do it, apple.

And if anyone wants to hear my mixes made on an iPhone with no monitor and just a pair of headphones, here ya go:

But you might care about the excellent sub-sires operated by Gawker, including,,, and others. These sites are actually high quality, but their existence is predicated on the fact that itself gets many more views. So it would truly be a shame if these other sites disappeared. Although I suspect many of the commentariat here would shed no tears if went out of business.

I've never heard much about the opinions of elderly Japanese on the necessity of the Americans dropping the bombs. Any sources for this? I'm genuinely curious.
It wouldn't surprise me, but it would strike me as odd to hear an elderly Japanese say the equivalent of "well, I *guess* they had to do it, but still..."
