No, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna kvetcha every time I see something about this tax (which I voted against, thanks, and I'm more commie-leaning than most). Especially since most of the ars this tax is gonna fund is the "snooty white people" kind that already has all the money it needs.
I wonder what happens if you don't pay the tax. Just give 'em the fucking finger. Does the Hales Administration have the stones to send one of its decorated officers to shoot me in the back like a mentally ill person, or is this all a big bluff?
I went and looked at the original article - since the quoted bits were suspiciously out of order - and found it puerile. I'm well aware that nerd culture stoops to discussing which imaginary cartoon girl is the most fuckable, and even so - really, nerd culture? Really?
At the same time, I'm dismayed by the way that the feminist gestapo has managed to singlehandedly dictate the terms of the nerd vs. sexism debate - here as in every other instance. There is another side to all this, but it can't seem to find its voice for all the shrieking harpies and yes-men that inevitably descend on anyone daring to speak for it.
Todd, Googling "smallest time quantum" got me this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck_time
So, according to that article, the universe's frame rate is about 10^43 fps.
Obviously, we still have some ways to go in PC graphics card development.
I'm confused by this article's implication that Romney has been revealed to be, as it says, "a changeling", and that his supporters will drop him now that they've found out.
Because, honestly, it's been obvious for months. Romney has made an entire campaign out of saying whatever he thinks it is he's supposed to say, regardless of whether it contradicts what he said the day before. The only time he's being genuine are the times when he makes an ass of himself - and even some of those are probably just misjudged attempts at pretending to have a actual position. And despite this, he still has supporters. Millions of 'em, in fact.
The only thing that can explain this is identity politics. I mean, Obama is no peach; hell, I think he should be IMpeached. (I'm voting for Jill Stein.) But it's not possible for millions of people who successfully learned how don pants to believe that Romney is actually a good choice for President on his merits - because he doesn't have any. Millions of people voting for him because they want to see the other team lose, and inventing merits for him as a rationalization? Now THAT'S plausible.
Oh hey, Obama. Isn't that the guy who took the so-called "public option" off the table before it was even seriously considered, and wouldn't even talk about single payer healthcare, and instead signed a deal that - while it does have some real benefits - also sold us all out to for-profit insurance companies?
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
Jill Stein 2012, and fuck the rest.
And to add to the notion that the 40-hour week is an arbitrary assumption: that standard was established roughly 100 years ago, when we still had elevator attendants, for fuck's sake. Thanks to technological advancement, American productivity has exploded since then, which the dullest wits this side of a brick have written off for decades as "automation killing jobs" - instead recognizing that it's a golden opportunity for people to work less hours (thereby employing more of them) and still earn a decent living.
No thanks, of course, to capitalism's insatiable hunger for slave labor, stolen wages, and the self-perpetuating spousal-abuse-like social conditions that sustain the big lie we're all living.
