How the Lessons of Columbine Saved Lives At Arapahoe High School

Helge9210 Re:Rule #1 (894 comments)

In Israel, ... they don't have school shootings.

In US school is part time prison where if someone beats you and you don't resist it's OK. If you complain, nobody cares, and if you resist, both sides of conflict are considered equally guilty. The only way out is to suffer through these years or get a gun and shoot everyone. In Israel they seem to care and to control the psychological state of students, and bullies get their ass full of Ritalin in no-time.

kitchen knives

It's actually illegal to carry a kitchen knife out of your house in Israel. Even in the trunk of your own car going to barbecue. And you know, how most people get criminal injuries on the streets? They get stabbed with a knife. Limiting the right to own a lethal weapon limits only the law abiding citizens. Criminals will have what they need anyway.

Soviet Image Editing Tool From 1987

Helge9210 Re:In fact it is French PERICOLOR-1000 Software (146 comments)

Most of the new development was carried in Kyiv, Ukraine. But Moscow had a technology to grind x86 chips slice by slice to reverse engineer Intel technology. So they send a committee from Moscow to Kyiv to choose a path for the industry for the next decade. Due to enmity between russians and ukrainians committee chose to continue with grinding and reverse engineering and the development of own technologies was canceled. Some years later Intel launched 80386 with 3D chip structure and russians were unable to guess its schematics like it was with 8086/88 and 80286.

No wonder he succeded. He had a roommate with 4-digit ID on /. And that must count for something.

Helge9210 Ukraine (180 comments)
