Ruby, Clojure, Ceylon: Same Goal, Different Results

lucian1900 Re:Ruby's Principle of Least Surprise (138 comments)

lucian1900 Re:I always thought (138 comments)

You may be confusing strong typing with static typing. C is statically, weakly typed and Python is strongly, dynamically typed. PHP is weakly, dynamically typed.

The Avengers: Why Pirates Failed To Prevent a Box Office Record

lucian1900 Re:Here's why the priates din't hurt revenues. (663 comments)

Some of us simply don't like theaters and prefer to watch films at home. I pay for Netflix even though it has a tiny selection. The morons are figthing to keep more things out of netflix instead of putting everything there.

Heartland Institute Learning To Troll On Billboards

lucian1900 Re:Last I knew (735 comments)

Seeing as how global warming is a fact and it's quite possible that it is largely human-caused, wouldn't it be prudent to take steps to reduce activity that might have caused it?

UK Man Jailed For 'Offensive Tweets'

lucian1900 Re:Not the United States (922 comments)

X Server Now Available For Android

lucian1900 Re:Reinveting the Wheel, Backwards (131 comments)

lucian1900 Re:It shouldn't be mandatory (273 comments)

But kids have mandatory arts for example (at least in other countries), to get them exposed to it. They don't yet know what they like.
