I'm curious, what is the language du jour these days? C#. Java, etc are all still relevant in the industry.

U.S. Students/Grads Carrying Over $1 Trillion In Debt

PmanAce Tell me again... (538 comments)

Tell me again why college in the US costs sooooo much? It's not like you are getting a super special top notch education that is not comparable to top Canadian universities for example.

Nice try with google translate. First of all, you wouldn't put an accent on the last "e" of the first word.

Visual Studio 2013 Released

PmanAce Re:Who cares? (198 comments)

How so? I'm using 2012 at work and feels just as good as any version so far. Debugging unit tests couldn't be easier, resharper helps a ton, etc. What bloat are you talking about that is preventing you from actually working?

Canadian Scientists Protest Political Sandbagging of Evidence-Based Policy

PmanAce Re:Sounds familiar... (216 comments)

If you are referring to Obama and the democrats as being on the left side of the political spectrum then you are grossly mistaken. The democrats are more like center-right...it's just that you don't see it like that in your duality "democracy". Being non-American and an outside observer, this is very evident.

More users should do what you just did, and catch yourself and apologize. Well done.

The Man Who Convinced Us We Needed Vitamin Supplements

PmanAce Re:Diet and laziness (707 comments)

The context here is getting bigger/stronger, not memory performance. The way to grow muscles is to recruit and wipe out as many fibers as possible when someone trains. If you take something that allows us to recruit fewer fibers (like creatine, which reduces the lactate acid threshold. It does this by increasing the muscles contractile strength and this in turn allows the body to use fewer fibers to do the same amount of work) then it doesn't take a degree to realize that this is not good news for muscle growth... If you want to bloat up and store water with creatine, go right ahead.

The Man Who Convinced Us We Needed Vitamin Supplements

PmanAce Re:Diet and laziness (707 comments)

I wasn't just talking about creatine, suppliments, whey, etc. What will happen when you stop taking creatine? You won't be as strong or are you going to take it for the rest of your life?

The Man Who Convinced Us We Needed Vitamin Supplements

PmanAce Re:Diet and laziness (707 comments)

Concentrate on lifting harder/better/improving your technique instead of taking a shortcut through creatine to improve your lifts. Taking supplements and such for lifting is a non-sustainable effort that your body won't tolerate in the long run. Once you do stop taking supplements and creatine your body will adjust and become much weaker...good luck dealing with that once that happens.

Scientists Silence Extra Chromosome In Down Syndrome Cells

PmanAce Re:Practicality? (230 comments)

A human is considered a human when their brains form in my opinion at the end of the first trimester I believe. In the case of rape, the "illegal" act of abortion is the consequence of the "illegal" act of being raped...therefore the woman should have a choice of what to do to her body. Remember, in the early stages, we just have a collection of cells dividing, akin to a tumor...
