Sensitivity is more important than truth.
Feelings are more important than facts.
Children are more important than adults.
Safety is more important than fun.
Back in the day when vast swages of humanity followed the Christian way of life the the last words in those sentences were always more important than the first! But then, people used to get burned at the cross too!
Average life expectancy for humans in Zimbabwe is 34 years for females and 37 years for males yet us westerners care more about a Lion getting killed?!?!
I'm confused (that's not hard to do when it comes to politics). For almost a decade Osama bin laden was the most wanted man on the planet, wanted for arrange acts of terrorism. In the end he caught and killed (allegedly).
Julien Blanc - the pick up artist - was barred from entering the UK because [ed quote] "allowing this man into the UK legitimises sexual assault and predation, and sends a message that women are playthings or objects without agency."
Today I read that 3 members of Osama bin laden's family have been killed in a plane crash in Blackbushe, Surrey.

When you eliminate the risk from bad behaviour people tend to behave badly!
The teenage keyboard warrior springs to mind, he sits on his laptop that mummy and daddy bought him and responds to anyone that dares to question him with a barrage of abuse and harsh language (this is not just limited to teenagers, adults do it too).
The risk is removed because the people he is abusing don't know who or where he is. Put that same person in a bar or public setting where he can be physically held accountable for his abuse and you get a different person!
To live with out sorrow is to live without happiness. To live with out happiness is to live without sorrow. Happiness and sorrow are mutual, you can't have one without the other anymore than you can have dark without light.
Judging people by their individual merits and ability is the only way to be a fair person. If you believe the man or the woman is better because they are a man or a woman you will never find equality.
Seek to be successful, not to avoid failure. By trying to avoid failure you are denying yourself a fundamental part of the learning process. Indeed, if you try to avoid failure above all else and deny it when it happens you will never learn!
Yes, you heard it people, the extreminists are suggesting that sexual consent can be withdrawn after the act.
Oh my word, what is the world coming to? Take out a loan then the lender changes their mind and you become a thief.. Have sex with one of these extreminists and they change their mind, you become a rapist! I have pity on you guys out there these days trying to score your self a goal!
I've been doing some math today and I though I dump some of the conversions I used for future reference both mine and yours!
FPS = MPH / 0.681818
MPH = FPS * 0.681818
Speed of Sound = 1,126 FPS
We've all been there, working for or with someone for a few months or years. You get to know them, regard them as a friend and they hold you in the same light! We talk about how much we've learned form each other, we talk about things we've found difficult both project based and in life, we talk about hobbies, tech and life in general. We talk about the exciting aspect of life and retort anecdotal situations we have been part of or shared. We share experiences AND experience (the most important part of friendship for me). Then the job or project finishes, maybe on good terms, maybe on bad. This is the point when you realise it was not friendship you were experiencing, it was convenience!
This person was you friend because you were there, nothing more nothing less!
After being an adult on this planet for over 20 years I am noticing this situation is becoming more prevalent as time goes by. Is it me, am I the kind of person people don't want to be friends with. Or is it them, are they a new breed of narcissistic, self centred humans that only see people for what they can take from them. Either way I don't like it!
I am disgusted.. The government are proposing and increase in the maximum sentence for copyright infringement.
"Ministers have launched a consultation on increasing it to 10 years - bringing it into line with copyright infringement of physical goods.
The government said tougher sentences would act as a 'significant deterrent'."
Ever wanted to get 2 Debian system with the same packages installed on both. I came across this situation just this very day. Trying to install perl-blead on the
and the tests kept failing on POSIX math. It worked fine on the
so I had to assume there was a package missing that caused the problem because prove -t ../ext/POSIX/t/math.t told me so.
I digress! To match the packages do:
dpkg --get-selections > /tmp/packagelist.txt
scp /tmp/packagelist user@host:filelocation
