Michael Bloomberg: You Can't Teach a Coal Miner To Code

slapyslapslap Re:no one would HIRE them, either (581 comments)

Stop sending resumes with more than 2 pages of resume experience....Just send the last 3-4 jobs. Hardly anyone cares about anything older than 15 years anyway. Tailor your resume for the job you are applying for. Besides that, resumes that are too long make you look like you are either a job hopper or a bullshit artist, or both.

Dinosaur Brains Flight-Ready Long Before They Took To the Air

slapyslapslap Re:Dinosaur couldn't fly (49 comments)

I seem to remember being taught there weren't any flying dinosaurs. Pterodactyl, Pteranodon, etc, weren't dinosaurs, they were reptiles.

Never studied it intensely, so it could be a matter of details though.

There were flying dinosaurs. In fact, there still are flying dinosaurs. The ones that still exist are commonly referred to as "birds". They are theropods.

3-D Printable Food Gets Funding From NASA

slapyslapslap Right. (242 comments)

Because today's food made from powder sucks because of the method of reconstitution, and not the fact that it was made into a fucking powder in the first place.

US Doctors Back Circumcision

slapyslapslap Re:I call BS (1264 comments)

We were made this way for very good reasons, even if we don't understand them. Imagine if somebody proposed the same thing for female infants. What would be the reaction? Leave all minors alone. Let them decide when they turn 18.

Except maybe there isn't a very good reason to have one. At least one that's better than the reason to remove it. There is likely a very good reason ancient cultures with a huge emphasis on cleanliness adopted the practice and codified it into their religions...probably much of the same reasons these doctors are touting.

US Doctors Back Circumcision

slapyslapslap US women prefer circumcised penises (1264 comments)

US women greatly prefer circumcised penises over non circumcised penises. That's reason enough for me!

Why Bad Jobs (or No Jobs) Happen To Good Workers

slapyslapslap Re: O RLY? (1201 comments)

Leave the valley. Seriously. You will make a bit less money elsewhere, but the cost of living will be much, much lower, which is a net gain. You'll also have recruiters banging down your door trying to get you to interview. You might not have the chance to work at the next hot Silicon Valley startup, but I'm guessing that at over 50, that's probably not too high on your priority list.

This is already being done, but in reverse. Google doesn't like it much either. Get caught, and you are de-listed.
