DID GERMANY PARTICIPATE IN THE DESTRUCTION OF LYBIA WITH NATO AND THE VARIOUS LIBERVENTIONIST SICKOS AND GAYLORDS (among which frankly sinister types like Obama, Rice, Howard, Berlusconi, Sarkozy and Hillary) THAT LOUDLY TOOK TO THE MIKE AND BLOVIATED ABOUT "RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT"?

NO.

But how am I getting "trapped" in tools that I couldn't have had before, in which I can accumulate skills and know-how to move OFF the so-called trap?

On a similar tack, during the industrial revolution, starving peasants had the "choice" to stay put in the countryside or move into the "trap" of large cities and join the throngs working in industry. And so it went...

An article of the Onion, with additional Amurrika Fcuk Year!!

*** WE MUST PROTECT THE THINGS WE VALUE MOST ***

Freedom (We gave it up for a bit of convenience)

Liberty (We gave it up for a bit of safety by a guy in blue who is wont to choke you to death)

Prosperity (We gave it up by letting them go off the Gold Standard to pay for bombing Vietnamese peasants, then perform QE/Monetary Diarreha for the mansions of the few)

Intellectual Property (We pledge allegiance to the flag of Mickey Mouse and crack-sniffing MPAAers)

Personal Information (What is this I don't even)

I guess even George Orwell could not have imagined the cravenness. The title itself fits right into MiniLove sloganeering.

DAT EXCEPTIONALISM!

Same attitude as for FATCA and AIR PASSENGER REPORTING really. It's all owned by US!

The counter from the US government's lawyers was that withholding the data would let criminals and fraudsters evade American prosecutors by sending their data offshore.

America has less than total jurisdiction over the globe! What did the Empire of Bases buy then? Can't something be done??

But where is the commonsense reasoning at?

Required reading for the newfangled data scientist: Old problems still persist as problems: Commonsense Reasoning and Commonsense Knowledge in Artificial Intelligence

Who is taller, Prince William or his baby son Prince George? Can you make a salad out of a polyester shirt? If you stick a pin into a carrot, does it make a hole in the carrot or in the pin? These types of questions may seem silly, but many intelligent tasks, such as understanding texts, computer vision, planning, and scientific reasoning require the same kinds of real-world knowledge and reasoning abilities.

This means things like paying your credit card bill or doing some other non-work related item should be avoided. People can and do use company IT to access their email.

Yes they do. Because when you get out of work, shops are closed, state employees have left about 6 hours earlier and with luck you can get a sammich at the petrol station...

Re: About Time

So far the only way to do this I've found is to train in Assembler.

Absolutely. But you have to do it in winter, using only vi and going uphills both ways. And no ordering books at amazon, you have to PERSONALLY drive to a shop 120 miles away and demand that their ordering process take three months and that they lose the package in transit. Did I mention bank switching?

How else can you make the children learn?

Re: The world is not Java, nor even the JVM.

Erlang was also a town in Germanysome weird-ass country in a prolonged post-war-crispy-bacon scenario, but then again Java was some Island that could be found in the Pacific, Oracle was a professional occupation held by crazy, drugged-up females from ancient Greece while Sun was a big yellow ball in the sky. Later, we also had Plan 9 (a movie) and Limbo (something an Italian once wrote a book on). Penguins were found in Antarctica only etc.

I may agree on the core, but this is an article by the contrarian A - so how much drama and thin threads of rhetoric (including the required seguing into the "won't anybody think of the copyrights" paragraph, where did that come from) am I looking at?

Yes, Wikipedia is very mass of good, bad and ugly as well as the useless and seems to think it should also be a righteous whistleblower site. But so what?

Re: Don't rely on this so called "report"

Just another undeclared ad, then?

Why should the new TLD be particularly prone to exploitation anyway? More than, say .cc, .cx or any other fast domains? Is it just because the total numbers of users is very low and the scammers move in first?
