11:37 I tracked down the supposed "obama with hijackers" photo, I see no evidence that they are hijackers. It would be fun to search their faces and try to get identities but I don't know how to do that shit.

several physicists were working on the same principles

Yeah, I think some Italian beat him to it and published by 2 or 3 years even.

I'd say no, but I can learn, but only to a certain extent. Certainly not to an Einstein extent, but you and I and most people with an ideal environment could learn geometry and trig well enough to teach it at a college or high school or something. A working level math education.

Maybe math isn't the best example, but that's part of my point here too, we were talking about how to install some software. It's not AI programming or climate change model engineering and it doesn't involve math or science at all. Sometimes it's just about having the experience and things look complicated from the outside.

having a grasp on complex matters is just a matter of learning a trade craft?

I guess my argument is that it's not a complex matter. There are complex things going on in tech, so my broad generalization there isn't all that accurate. I guess I think there's been an irrational worship of all things and people in tech with the internet boom that rubs me wrong sometimes.

What about the people flunking trade craft educations?

I imagine that the vast majority had lots of factors stacked against them and chaos in their lives rather than they studied adequately and still failed to grasp the material and get in. But I do accept that some people are too dumb to do certain things.

Nah, I'm trying to say that me having a grasp on it doesn't make me smarter than OP. It's just a trade skill, not wisdom or general intelligence.

I'd like a default switch to change to be notified about all conversations I've participated on.

Duuude bravo, that's totally a missing reddit feature. So I guess this means if you are person A and person B replies to you, and then person C replies to person B, you want a notificiation? Aka all comments that are a child of your comment should notify you if you opt-in to it.

I like one up from the bottom right, and 3 up from the bottom right, I guess the boring less styled ones. And the one magnora likes.

What if having this stuff legal and public leads to a decrease in crimes against kids? The ethics and legality of minors donating are beyond me, but for young adults this also provides a way to earn some money. The libertarian in me says yes even though the rest of me thinks creepy and weird.

Agreed. I like your A it reminds me of Arch Linux. The D is nice and easily recognizable.

I agree with the lighter .net part unless it is supposed to look like an exclamation point, like SaidIt! in which case bigger and darker might be better.

Also maybe the community wants to vote on switching logos, it could be fun.

What, are you cheating on your CFR Newt, or just stirring the partisan shit? Feinstein also caught the CIA hacking her but nothing came of it of course.

This advice has a huge tech bias, but it's solid otherwise and I'm impressed with how many advices were presented. "wealth" should be "passive income" in the first one.

Libertarian always appealed to me as a middle ground between the two parties- economically (and foreign policy) conservative and socially liberal. I don't like the extreme versions though and like our constitution, so I've been considering myself a "democratic libertarian" like how Bernie qualifies his socialism.

I guess I just want an alternative history fiction of Bernie doing the right thing. "My fellow Americans, I'm taking this opportunity to discuss the deeply troubling DNC emails which were recently leaked..." "Unfortunately due to these circumstances I cannot endorse Mrs. Clinton". "I demand a full recount of primary votes in California..."

Oh that's cool that you played Cyberpunk. I know you don't video game, but a well respected company is using that game as inspiration and a foundation for a new video game Cyberpunk 2077. Maybe you'd enjoy the trailer and seeing it brought to life.

You contribute great just by being here and sharing all of your links.

Too bad this doesn't address her CFR membership or the funds which got her into office- an anti-gay cult with lots of power in Hawaii which she is still affiliated with.

I guess the question is is she a progressive or a neo-con playing progressive?
