Employers Worried About Critical Thinking Skills

Type44Q Re:Here's one reason (406 comments)

Republicans reject teaching critical thinking skills...

And it stands to reason that they would; seriously, what's the point of returning society to feudalism if the rest of us aren't willing to play along and act like retarded peasants and serfs??

Will the Google Car Turn Out To Be the Apple Newton of Automobiles?

Type44Q Re:Rain and snow? (283 comments)

Your totally Aspie-ish inability to spot humor notwithstanding, I actually agree with your idealism... but it's quite clear that you've never gotten to enjoy the "pleasure" of living amongst the wonderful [and admittedly all-too-human] folks in question! ;)

Will the Google Car Turn Out To Be the Apple Newton of Automobiles?

Type44Q Re:Rain and snow? (283 comments)

Sure performance will be degraded in bad weather, and the car will have to slow down to compensate. Which is exactly what humans do.

Considering that Texans and Okies tend to speed up when the streets are slippery and visibility's been reduced, I suspect this confirms my suspicion: hicks aren't human! :p

Michigan Latest State To Ban Direct Tesla Sales

Type44Q Re:Tesla wasn't the target, it was China (254 comments)

it has to be able to drive 1000 miles in a day

That's perfectly reasonable; you'd only need to drive at 65mph for nearly fifteen and a half fucking hours without ever stopping to get gas or take a piss. :p

Type44Q Re:After whast happened to Odroid-w, why? (80 comments)

Isn't it more important to do cool and interesting things with a computer rather than everything obsessedly being open source?

You simply don't get it: in the long run, those two ideals are anything but mutually exclusive.

Type44Q Re:Why (521 comments)

So basically we should give up all our civil liberties, and live in a police state with harsher restrictions than sharia law WITH high tech tools to enforce it.

Lockheed Claims Breakthrough On Fusion Energy Project

Type44Q Re:credibility of article is doubtful (566 comments)

It is amazing that reporters seem to lack even an 8th grade level of science education

Indeed, they seem to lack an 8th grade level of science education. However, I have it on good authority that they actually lack even a kindergarten level; they're just good at faking it. ;)

The CDC Is Carefully Controlling How Scared You Are About Ebola

Type44Q Re:Ebola threat (478 comments)

...customs like washing the body of the deceased, then having the wife drink the water to prove she didn't try to kill him. Once again, that is not the kind of tradition you want to have...

Come on, how else is she supposed to prove she didn't kill him??

Type44Q Too complicated... (364 comments)

Too complicated with too many ways to circumvent the restrictions. Suspend their fucking license for thirty days (first offense) if caught using anything but GPS or MP3 apps while driving, six months for the second offense, two years for the third offense, five years for the fourth and permanent revocation for the fifth.

Type44Q Type44Q writes  |  about 2 years ago

Type44Q (1233630) writes "Well, the latest edition of Mint is finally here (the release candidate, anyway); according to The Linux Mint Blog, "For the first time since Linux Mint 11, the development team was able to capitalize on upstream technology which works and fits its goals. After 6 months of incremental development, Linux Mint 14 features an impressive list of improvements, increased stability and a refined desktop experience. We’re very proud of MATE, Cinnamon, MDM and all the components used in this release, and we’re very excited to show you how they all fit together in Linux Mint 14.""
