Hungary To Tax Internet Traffic

andydouble07 Re:A Serious Deficit, You Say? (324 comments)

Alright, what would you like to cut, then? Cutting the entire military should do it. Or taking away health care from the old folks, that would be another winner. That's about 2/3s of the budget between those two. The stuff you're talking about is a drop in the bucket, so if you're really serious about cutting spending let's talk about what you'd cut.

He's talking about Windsor, Canada. The city on the other side of the bridge. Nothing is being said about what Canada the country is doing.

Bioethicist At National Institutes of Health: "Why I Hope To Die At 75"

andydouble07 Re:The WHO (478 comments)

He's clearly not talking about relatively healthy people like your parents. I'm sure you'd be spouting a different story in a year if they suddenly came down with Alzheimer's.

Should programming be a required curriculum in public schools?

andydouble07 Re:Obvious missing option -- ELECTIVES! (313 comments)

This isn't a very useful option because it doesn't describe WHY it should be an elective. Elective programming courses are already the status quo, so when the question asks "should it be a required curriculum", your answer is saying "No, because it isn't". Maybe there are other good reasons why it shouldn't be a required course, but "it should be elective" isn't one of them.

I use spinning-drive storage media ...

andydouble07 Re:"More"? (232 comments)

I'm counting this as "More bits read/written per day", which would definitely favor the SSD even though I have 10x the capacity on disk drives.

US and Israel Test Missile As Syria War Tensions Rise

andydouble07 Re:Wait, what? (227 comments)

People have some serious amnesia about the early 2000's. Barely anyone spoke out about the wars at the time, and NONE of the media did. Of course everyone claims to have been against it retrospectively, but at the time you (and I) were too scared to speak up about it.

NSA Broke Privacy Rules Thousands of Times Per Year, Audit Finds

andydouble07 Re:so basically, what we knew (312 comments)

This type of tax-exempt status is only for non-political organizations, and the organizations which were applying were unequivocally political. They were doing their damn jobs (for once), I only wish they'd done better at it.
