Limiting the Teaching of the Scientific Process In Ohio

thaylin Re:That's not in the bill, and he didn't say that (522 comments)

I like how you left off the next sentence of his response "That’s legitimate.". When speaking about the bill what saying it is legitimate is at the very least implying it is ok under the bill.

Limiting the Teaching of the Scientific Process In Ohio

thaylin Re:Sharia is religion, prohibited under this bill (522 comments)

Cite it or you're a liar, cuntbag.

“In many districts, they may have a different perspective on that, and we want to provide them the flexibility to consider all perspectives, not just on matters of faith or how the Earth came into existence, but also global warming and other topics that are controversial,” Thompson said. Asked if intelligent design — the idea that a higher authority is responsible for life — should be taught alongside evolution, Thompson said, “I think it would be good for them to consider the perspectives of people of faith. That’s legitimate.

Besides what causeby stated there was also Bruno. There was also Galileo, but he was forced to recant.

Or you could be forgetting that a lot of them pretended to be that way, or they lost their head for blasphemy.

Time Warner Cable Experiences Nationwide Internet Outage

thaylin Re:Earthlink over TWC cable here (133 comments)

And even then some host names would translate, just not others. Hulu was fine for example.

Time Warner Cable Experiences Nationwide Internet Outage

thaylin Re:Can't wait to hear what happened (133 comments)

It was not just DNS, you could not ping by IP address either. Oddly their DNS would not resolve names other than hulu.com and their own name servers. Wonder if hulu is hosted in their network.

In at least some cases the change as made because they have a dependency and that dependency will now only support systemd. Fedora/RHEL have a personal bias as they were the ones who developed systemd

Munich Council Say Talk of LiMux Demise Is Greatly Exaggerated

I believe there was a recent patch Tuesday that caused massive BSODs, so not sure your point really sticks.

Airbnb To Hand Over Data On 124 Hosts To New York Attorney General

thaylin Re:Bad actors? (149 comments)

The hotel industry in NYC is a 10billion a year industry. Preventing 1% of competition means approximately 100million in additional income, therefore unless they paid a whole lot for those lobbyists I would say they were worth their money.

For Microsoft, $93B Abroad Means Avoiding $30B Tax Hit

thaylin Re:Okay... and? (316 comments)

Fail.

They are paying taxes on them. In the domiciles abroad. Near the end of TFA is:

The report also found that “28 these corporations reveal that they have paid an income tax rate of 10 percent or less to the governments of the countries where these profits are officially held, indicating that most of these profits are likely in offshore tax havens.”

It is conveniently politically correct to refer to other countries with lower tax rates as "tax havens". The reality is if the US tax rates were at (or at least near) the foreign rates than funds which could be repatriated would be. Note the word could. No company would bring home 100% as they are operating businesses overseas and need to invest there too.

0 is 10% or less

33 Months In Prison For Recording a Movie In a Theater

thaylin Re:The real crime here (461 comments)

The employer cannot refuse if they are employing him in the US. It does not matter if they have a bank account. If they are paying him when they take out the rest of his taxes they have to garnish that amount and send it to the government. If they are paying him under the table that is a different matter.

I dont think it is a matter of it being wrong for white collar, but copyright infringement should never be anything other than civil.

Comcast Training Materials Leaked

thaylin Re:Just doin' business (251 comments)

Wait so this is similar because when you go to a store, whose employees sole job to sell you something, it is like when you go to technical support, expecting someone whose sole job is to support your issue? They are 2 distinct types of employees. When I go to a store I expect to be upsold. When I contact customer service for a problem I do not expect to be sold something.

Comcast Training Materials Leaked

thaylin Re:Just don't deal with Americans (251 comments)

Only so many areas that are covered by fios, and only so many houses in those areas, or good jobs in those areas.. Even then we would be dealing with Verizon which is just as bad.... I mean when you have 2 of the lowest rated it is not hard to beat them...

Comcast Training Materials Leaked

thaylin Re:McDonallds should sue ... (251 comments)

Mc Donalds cashiers are there to sell stuff.. That is different from the people in the back making the food. How fast would they start losing customers if the cooks started coming up and tried to pressure you into buying stuff before they would make the food you already ordered and paid for... Or if you came to the manager with a mistake and instead of fixing the mistake they tried to sell you more stuff...
