Comment Just don't (Score 1) 312

Most likely if you haven't got the urge by your 20s to try and control your computer you just aren't going to like it.
Because basically, *any* computer language learnt will be a complement to your skills, albeit only fun or frustration.
You see, the language is only the tool, assignments, loops, statements and conditionals is pretty much all you need to start.
GOTO is considered evil, but then again it's not.
Why haven't you tried anything?

I don't want to proclaim holiness on developers, the mythical art of programming or anything, it's just that I've seen too many people blindly jumping a career opportunity ending up in disappointment.

Windows 8 was alright for anything but the desktop (mobile, home theater).
Windows 10 is more polished and suitable for desktop, and price/quality wise a good choice without the telemetry.
Anyhow, I don't see me going back to OSX in the future with Jobs gone, Linux for development because that's where the server's at,
not because Linux was ahead, as it used to be.
Despite the achievements Linux Desktop is still feels like kludges.

Voting for someone on the basis of their sex is just as stupid as voting for someone on the basis of their race/skin-colour. You should be voting on the basis of their policies — far more complex than some genetic attribute.

Not stupid, logical.

Politicians are perceived to lie and break promises on a regular base, you don't know what to expect.
Then it is logical to vote on persistent attributes.
In any case, would Clinton have won your vote on Clinton would have the most political impact itself, women as president.

Just because there may not be a genetic component to homosexuality doesn't mean that it isn't fixed or is somehow a choice.

Not relevant. Homosexuality is and has been for ages, a fact of life.
Nothing wrong, it's personal.
The problems start when sexuality of any kind are suppressed (e.g. religion, cultural). Male rejection usually stems from sexual uncertainty or fear of being hunted. Most get over it,bullying is a choice.
