If you want to learn about history, don't bother taking a class, unless you like biased, propaganda ridden trash.
While I understand the concern behind your comment, please enlighten me on how I should learn about events 200 years in the past.

Ever seen the movie Idiocracy?
Actually, I tried -- but it was too over the top for me. I don't find "stupid" as funny as so many others seem to. I understand the point though.

I won't lie -- I didn't read a lot of this and frankly I don't particularly care. I just wanted to stop by and say, it has to be better than talking about SC reaching their latest funding goal.

Stories like this just make me so tired. I realize people have been saying the end of the world is coming for hundreds if not thousands of years -- but reading stories make me wonder if we can survive the next few decades. Assuming we survive until then, I'd love to take a history class on the first half of this century a couple of hundred years from now.

A girlfriend of mine shared that article with me and said 'I think this is the woman of your dreams.' And she's right. I always said I'd never get married, but I'd marry that chick in a heartbeat! What a champ!
"A girlfriend" -- you have more than one? It would be a much more impressive story if she had boarded the plane afterwards instead of getting carted off to a "convalescence room" to sleep it off.

I liked Prometheus! There. I said it! And I know I'm the only one in the world. That's ok.

I don't know if I could say I liked it, but I certainly didn't dislike it as much as so many others seemed to. It was "okay".

Ah, exactly right, it is a percentile score, not a percentage.

ie.. His score compared against all the entries in the ESPN's Pigskin Pick'em.

Congrats to Verno last year. With a pretty amazing 99.3%.
Congrats Verno... there is something funky going on with the math there though. Verno scored 170 correct picks. 32 teams playing 16 games each should be 256 games, which is more like 67%.

I have to agree with the author, I dislike the forced updates. More than anything because I know at some point they're are going to make a feature update I can't disable and can't live with. Like that horrid new bookmarking they came out with not too long ago. For now you can force that away, but the day they change it so you can't will be the day I change browsers.

Jordan died trying to finish his 'epic' and Martin will probably follow in his footsteps. So pacing...yeah..hmm...not sure I agree with you there.

Precisely why I refuse to start reading the books until either he finishes or dies. If he dies first, I either won't read them, or will wait to see if he left enough notes for someone to finish them up...

This is the point where I drag out my line about "a hobby is a hobby - how much does a new hunting rifle cost? Or a new set of golf clubs?".
Nin hit the nail on the head.

Wasn't there a "limited release" ship they charged $1,200 for? $400 must be a deal! Give me two! (not)

also, it would have to be digital because violent options are impossible. but if you shut down enough infrastructures and backbones and so forth, it would be much more difficult for them to respond to it... regardless of the military aspect, the idea of wiping debts and account records and so forth etc would be the main goal
Thank you, Tyler Durden. You can return to the basement now.

If the problem is electing the same people over and over, how is not voting at all solving the problem? Maybe if everyone who thought that way had gotten up and voted for Ross Perot, Ron Paul or Ralph Nader maybe something would have gotten changed. Don't misunderstand, you have it mostly right. There isn't much difference between the Rs and the Ds. But non-participation would seem to be more like a surrender than anything.

There are no easy answers. Term limits? Sounds good, until you realize that writing laws is complex -- and if the legislature is getting over turned all the time it just means the non-elected staffers will end up being the ones writing the laws. New parties? The system is effectively rigged against it.

I would very much like to be able to jump ahead a couple of hundred years and see how it all turns out...
