A: My corp sees that stooge's empire tower has shiny labs, we want the blueprints inside. So we declare war, and lay siege to his tower.
B: Stooge removes blueprints JUST in time, but doesn't manage to rescue anything else. We grab the valuables and leave.
C: I log on mining alt with no history or affiliation with my corp. I then fly to the system (in a mining barge), act like a total noob and proceed to "sympathize" with the stooge about griefers. After a short bit of communication, I offer to help move what gear he has left (mining barges have a large cargo hold).
D: I tell my corpmate to log back in. I grab the most valuable remaining gear, stealing the loot flags my alt hostile to my corp. I tell stooge I am being attacked by 1 hostile and need assistance. As soon as stooge tells me his is en route, I leave, head for a different system, drop off the loot, and leave the mining barge and switch out to a free "insurance" ship.
E: Corpmate kills Stooge's shiny fit ship, and loots it's corpse, fills up with what little remains of the tower and splits the profits with me 50/50
F: I tell Stooge that my alt was killed by my corpmate. Stooge buys me a replacement mining barge, which I sell. Then Stooge offers my alt a position in his corporation.
G: After 3 months I convince Stooge and Stooge's few other corpmates that I am well skilled for production now. They give me access to lots of resources and the blueprints we didn't get to steal earlier. I empty the corp wallet, transfer all the resources to my personal hanger, and safely tuck the blueprints in my cargohold.
H: I leave the corp, sending everyone in it a note of apology. Stooge puts a massive bounty on my alt's head. I kill my alt with my main (which means I get the monetary reward) sell all the booty, and proceed to waste the small fortune on suiciding into much larger groups.
Seriously. I want no fucking part of this. Every tedious bit of hero worship I get plastered with is only used by Reddit-at-large to "hold me to a higher standard" (which basically means "I want you to only do things that I agree with so that when you do things I disagree with I can hate-stalk you and chide you for not being a better person"). Know what's worse then half of Reddit wanting to suck your dick? A quarter of reddit wringing their hands with furrowed brow because you said something that upset their delicate sensibilities and since they wanted to suck your dick before but now they're not so sure their self-doubt turns into self-loathing and we can't have that mama would be sad so BURN THE WITCH
Let's get one thing straight:
There are genuinely good people on Reddit. People who help others every day. There have been genuinely good acts performed on Reddit. People helping anonymous strangers and hard-luck cases because they are fundamentally kind. With any luck, this post will fill up with them - we're off to a good start already.
But I am not one of those people.
I'm here for three things:
1) to openly mock rape victims
2) to troll and frustrate film aficionados
3) to get admitted narcotics traffickers back on the streets sooner
The last fucking thing I need is one of my bottomless army of concern-trolls saying "a true Reddit Hero would never have used the f-word, you horrible, horrible man." So I'll take my poop and grin and that will be that.
Well this will be tough to top. I accidentally burned down my parents house. No one was in the house thank god, but the guilt I feel is pretty intense. It was about 10 years ago and it still makes me queasy still to just write that. Yeah yeah, it was an accident, but it is pretty much the worst accident ever. I left a candle burning in my room too close to the shelf it was sitting on, left the room for awhile, and it caught the whole shelf on fire, which spread unbelievably fast. The smoke alarm went off and I ran upstairs, but it had literally spread to the wall already. I tried to get a bucket of water, but by the time I did that it had consumed the whole room. So, it was basically time to just get the F out of the house and that was it.
Insurance basically made my parents financially whole, but things have never really been the same. They totally forgived me and were so understanding, but even though they quickly recovered and have a really nice home now, they just never quite seem to me like they are "home." Every time I think that it makes me want to curl into a ball.
Anyway, good luck topping that one.
Chomsky has been saying this for a long time, and now there is proof: Israel (and therefore the US) is punishing the Palestinians for voting the wrong way.
I knew it! I said in the original thread that something seemed fishy (why would he hide the tub in his own closet? He's supposed to be a thief, not an idiot.)
Looks like your step sister was making some plans. I mean, why the f would she put the tub in her... (step-nephew who's the same age????)'s closet? The container full of money was under a bunch of junk? Why did she put it under a bunch of junk????
Kid was planning to steal the fuck out of that, but wanted to test the security standards first. You need to lay some fucking smack down with your step-mom. That little shit tried to steal the money and pin it on your son, and that's BULLSHIT.
Do not let this drop.
I highly doubt it has anything to do with cost.
A couple things first the proprietary standards, yes MS is finally learning that corps dont want a standard for their docs that is owned by another corp that might go out of business and leave them with docs they cant open.
More importantly I think, the world has seen over the past few years that american corps will do absolutely anything the government asks of them with little complaint legality be damned.
The FEAR IS NSA BACKDOORS.
Even our allies, the brits and the israelis, replace the software we give them in our military equipment with open source. They arent trying to save money, they dont want the US to be able to shut down the plane they bought, mid flight.
Though in many cases, YOU CAN SAVE A SHIT TON with open source.
just replacing office with open office in a small office can save you a ton. And yes MS office is nicer, but they both get the job done
some source, ISrael, brits and australians want the software for our f-35s
>Access to the F-35’s software source code remains a live issue for the Israelis, as it has been with the Australians [PDF], British, and others.
the russians on the other hand, sell the source code with their mig sales.
Sous vide cooked meats are deceptive. First of all, cooked to the same temperature they will tend to look redder that meat cooked with a more traditional method.
Second, pathogen destruction begins at 130°F, which would be just on the upper end of rare for beef. A piece of meat held at 130°F for a little under two hours is considered pasteurized by the FDA and (IIRC) safe for consumption by individuals with compromised immune systems. At 135°F the required time drops to 36 minutes.
That piece of meat, cooked sous vide, would look as red or redder than the burger the OP posted. I've cooked beef and lamb at 135°F that looked uncooked on the inside, but had great texture and taste.
It's pretty cool stuff.
Original study citation: Patterns of widespread decline in North American
bumble bees; Sydney A. Camerona, Jeffrey D. Loziera, James P. Strange, Jonathan B. Koch, Nils Cordesa, Leellen F. Solterd, and Terry L. Griswold; November 2010 PNAS.
It was only 4 cherry picked species, and only those with high Nosema bombi infections + low genetic diversity within their populations. Already we have a problem because populations at risk of decline from ongoing high rates of infection are inherently genetically slim.
The study and model are so complex that we (a small, admittedly self-righteous group of entomologists, climate modelers and ecologists) spent over 2 hours today trying to understand how they had "corrected" 100-year-old data with unknown sampling methods and how they constructed their model from the historical data.
Hysteria about native bee decline pays my stipend and does generate interest in their conservation, so I'll keep my criticisms brief. There is little conclusive cause for alarm at this point, and this study is not conclusive or even reliable at this point.
These are going to be an interesting read in 2 years time...
Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, and arguably George W. Bush (had a grenade thrown at him, but it was a dud). Just because they survived the attempts doesn't mean that they are exempt from the intentions of your list
If we want to get technical, Lee Harvey Oswald was a socialist, which is left-wing not right-wing, so we can add John F. Kennedy to the list on the other side of this ridiculous left vs. right dichotomy we are trying to create.
Headline is just a little misleading:
"And while some parts of the world get to celebrate Public Domain Day this year with the freeing of works by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Paul Klee, Leon Trotsky, Walter Benjamin and others, here in the US, we come up empty yet again."
So works did enter the public domain, just not in the US.

The animator, Anthony F. Schepperd, has another music video titled Wail To God for the band Ape School. The animation is similar at times and is NSFW (literally mountains and mountains of breasts).
Did you know that The Great Gatsby was written in 1925 by F. Scott Fitzgerald? It's considered one of the best American novels ever written and is on Time's greatest 100 novels list.
It's still boring though.

r/suicidewatch can pretty much be summed up in its entirety, because every single post elicits nearly the same array of responses from different people.
A. People who tell the poster that its not too late and give other general sentimental messages
B. People with experience of suicidal thoughts who argue based on their experience that its not too late.
C. People with experience and who are still considering suicide relating to the poster's feelings point blank.
D. People with or without experience offering philosophical advice in an attempt to appeal to the posters reason.
E. People with or without experience advising the poster to seek professional help.
F. People with or without experience advising the poster to engage themselves in some specific activity, be it exercise, socialization, or some other activity to relieve depression.
G. People with or without experience who ask the poster a question in an attempt to engage them in an extended conversation, or offer to talk with them.
The sad part is, even the entire spectrum of advice one can possibly offer is often not enough. How could that be? How could the efforts of tens, if not hundreds of people at a time, to help one individual, be ineffective? It is a mystery. Perhaps it is because none of us truly has any non-emotional, non-self-supported reason for living. Equally so, none of us has any non-emotional, non-self-supported reason for dying. Here we are, attempting to support another person, but no matter how much effort, it will fail if they are not, eventually, the one who comes to support themselves.
He knew what he was doing the whole time, too. He probably could have forded the thing if I really wanted to, notice the snorkel.
This is Chad from Austin's Pizza Call Center. I'm glad you enjoyed my doodle enough to post it on Reddit.
I was having a bad day at work last night, but the request on your online order made my night. Figured I should oblige such a creative request the best I could. I posted the doodle on my FaceBook account (www.facebook.com/groundxero) shortly before e-mailing it to you. I figured I might get an e-mail back from you and a few comments on my post. Little did I realize by the time I came in to work tonight the thing would literally have gone viral.
I want to assure naysayers that this was REAL, not a faked occurrence, nor was it some elaborate marketing ploy by Austin's Pizza. (Although upper management, I'm sure, is appreciative of the publicity.)
I would, however, like to take this opportunity to capitalize on this unforeseen event with a little shameless self-promotion of my art through our website, www.SCABFARM.com.
I literally just signed up for this account tonight when I learned about all the buzz about this, so I hope I'm not violating any Reddit rules by self promoting.
Thanks again, John, for making my night at work a little more entertaining, and keep those requests coming!

I think you're overlooking quite a lot of people here. Mainly Wesley Snipes: A) He refers to himself in the third person B) He has a long "magical" hair growing from his ear that he refuses to cut and that has to be digitally removed from his movies C) While filming Blade, he stayed in character ON AND OFF set and would make his wife and kids refer to him by his character name D) He's a believer in that bullshit Egyptian "I am god" religion E) Refuses to pay taxes F) He once beat Halle Berry so badly that she is almost deaf in one ear G) Just fucking look at him.
It's too bad. He was certainly a good programmer. I'm not too surprised, though. He probably had no idea how reliant everybody would become on his mod, combined with the crazy amount of pressure he received over the holidays, the fact that he's 15, how hard it is to stay on top of such a volatile environment like Minecraft is. All we can hope is that bukkit will turn out to be all it is advertised to be.
My god! They're everywhere! How long have you known about this??? [NSFW if you can't figure it out]
I see your Bill Hicks and raise you a George Carlin:
"Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don't fall out of the sky. They don't pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It's what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain't going to do any good; you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it's not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here... like, the public. Yeah, the public sucks. There's a nice campaign slogan for somebody: 'The Public Sucks. F*ck Hope.'"
To those who are inevitably going to come in here and say "OMG WHEN DID MINECRAFT GET UNICORNS‽", this is not in the game normally. It's the result of a mod called Mo' Creatures.
I'll leave this up because I'd be interested if anyone has anything to say about it, but a little more inspection has me thinking this is actually unlikely: Pine Bluff is 70 miles from Beebe and is most definitely down river.
ctrl+f "fake".. yeah look at how different the font of the "funny stuff" is from the headings and such. Also, if they didn't try to pack it in with all kinds of hivemind jerkoff shit i may not have noticed but a real report of an incident like that would read like this:
Came to work drunk/on drugs. Rude to customers and speaking in gibberish. Terminated on the spot.
Sorry, but Managers of Dominos Pizza don't write these reports for the entertainment of the internet. Just the facts. Reciting Pi is where it jumped the shark.
People, there are a lot of ignorant posts here.
First - What goes into Medical costs is determined by Health and Human Services.
Second - Very few (if any) health care companies have an MLR below 80%. Most operate around 83-87% across all their products.
Third - Profits for health care companies are in the 3-8% range.
When you look at the profits of for-profit hospitals and drug companies, you all might start to get the picture of why our healthcare costs are so high. Oh, and quit smoking, drinking, and eat a f*cking salad. That alone could reduce our premiums by above 50% (80% of costs in the US are caused by 5 conditions which are primarily lifestyle driven).
Yeah, bring on the down votes. But most of you here are just as uninformed as the right wing people you bitch about.
I work for the 9-1-1. I received calls for people driving recklessly because
A) They were drunk
B) They were old
C) They were tired
D) They were using their cell phone
E) They were putting on make-up
F) They were handicapped
G) They were speeding
H) They were having a heart attack
I) They had just swallowed a whole bottle of pills in an attempted suicide and decided to ran away with their car because their spouse had called 9-1-1
I never, not once, ever received a call for someone driving recklessly because their were high on weed.
So in conclusion: dont drive stoned; but also don't drive if your old, tired, gonna use your cell phone, have heart problems, are handicapped, need to put on make-up, think you are a F1 driver or just attempted suicide by swallowing a whole bottle of medication.
Fuck it, just take the bus.
I would say most of the weight issues were achived by cutting your carbohydrates. I don't believe cutting out red meat had anything to do with it. If so very little.
Looking at your list (simplified):
-red meat = -protein -fat
-soda = -carbs -water
-white bread = -carbs
-white pasta = -carbs
-white rice = -carbs
+whole grain = +carbs +vitamin complexes
+veggies = +water +carbs +vitamin complexes +mineral complexes
+lean meat = +protein
+fish = +protein +fats
+water = +water

I love the marine thing. An over hyped marine lived near us and came after myself and my brother, 12 and 13 because our football went near his house. My dad who had a stroke, not much use of his left side, came out and invited him over to "discuss" the problem at hand. The punk had veins sticking out of his neck and was screaming at my dad.
Pops, leaning on a stick, leg swept the marine dork, shifted his weight onto his bad leg and stick, stomped the guys solar plexus in what had to be three seconds. The hooya was left writhing and crying and gasping for air. We were too blown away to even cheer. Pops casually turned and limped back into our house. Before we get all marine-y here my daughter (dad rolling over in grave) was a corpsman in Iraq and Afghanistan.
God bless all the tough dedicated Marines out there who shut the F*#k up and fight the fight. In a recent interview another leather jacket wearing feauxstud, Bush, with a simpleton's smirk on his Alfred E. Newman, said "it was real hard for him to make the "deshishon" to go "agin" his "free market" principals(?) and do the TARP thing. So, that and the two wars Bush initiated along with the free market "thing" has left us as a financial colony of China and emptied the coffers...Obviously this blowhard needs to learn how to read.
Like my dad used to say The army does the fighting, the marines get the credit and the navy gets the pay. One caveat, the old man was a staff sergeant under Patton during WWII.
Hey Sure_Ill_Draw_That, I know you're busy but can you draw me a picture of a marmot smoking a cigar and holding a katana? I need it for a class project.
This is a picture of Rowes Furniture in Toowoomba. A friend of mine sent it to me just a few hours ago. The flooding there is ridiculous right now. This is her dads car as of a few hours ago.
I wish I could say it gets better at the higher end establishments for cooks, but it really doesn't. I work in a four star hotel, and I can tell you it's not much better here. Along with the crappy hours and chaos of the kitchen there is also the ego of the executive chef. If your lucky enough to end up in banquets, or prep then it's not that bad, but the guys on the line get the short end. I no longer work F&B, but when I did at the hotel I can tell you I was always polite to the kitchen even in the craziest of times.
Note to all servers:
Spend a few minutes learning the names of the kitchen staff.
Greet them everyday by name, and ask how their doing.
Be polite despite how badly you want to yell at someone.
Never tell the kitchen how much you make.
To all those still waiting tables keep up the good work. I still tip 20% or more unless they really fucked up bad.

If you still have the computer then I would do almost exactly what Liar_tuck suggested (minus the f-bomb). I wouldn't argue, I would simply smile, say "ok", uninstall everything and hand them back the computer. Simply say, "I'm sorry you to feel this way" No explanation. Nothing. You stated you run a business and customers (acquaintances in your case) change their minds often, especially when it comes to prices.
Almost a year ago, she defended Limbaugh for saying it.
> Rush Limbaugh was using satire ... . I didn't hear Rush Limbaugh calling a group of people whom he did not agree with 'f-ing retards,' and we did know that Rahm Emanuel, as has been reported, did say that. There is a big difference there.
I have watched quite a few episodes, but the part they never seem to show (unless I missed that episode) is HOW DO THEY MAKE ALL THE MACHINES THAT MAKE THE REST OF THE STUFF? Those automated factories are f**king amazing!
After reading through the comments here, it's pretty evident that a lot of people here don't have the slightest idea what happened during the Vietnam War. The only thing exceptional about the My Lai Massacre is the extraordinary amount of U.S. media attention it received—mostly thanks to Life magazine.
The My Lai Massacre was a minor footnote in Operation Wheeler/Wallowa. In fact, four kilometers down the road from My Lai was a virtually identical massacre going on in My Khe. The operation methodically plotted out targets right on top of villages, which would be followed up by search and destroy operations on the ground. I know the media like to make Colonel Calley look like some kind of lone madman, but plotting bombing coordinates takes coordination with someone in Washington D.C. It was part of a deliberate operation managed by the 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division.
The media didn't even make an issue of My Lai Massacre until a year and a half after it actually happened. Corporate America wanted to ratchet down the war for various reasons, and suddenly, a year and a half later, there's an outrage about My Lai since it's politically useful, but it was known about among the compliant press all along.

Most companies who buy forestry in the coming sale will only be granted permission to fell if the trees are replanted in a sustainable manner.
There are 600 acres of privately owned woodland at the back of my house. It gets felled in 2-3 acre blocks with each block being replanted shortly after felling.
Example. It's really not that big a deal.
it's a turn. it's a fast embellishment, where you play the note above, the note itself, the note below, and then the note itself again. in this example, you would play F-A-D-B-A-F GFEF (the last 4 denote the symbol in question). In this example you would probably play them as fast as 32nd notes, so that you play all 4 notes in the time span of an 8th note holding of course the F for the final 8th note.
according to the link I posted (ctrl-f "gloves"):
You have the right to ask a Security Officer to change her/his gloves during the physical inspection of your accessible property, before performing a physical search (pat-down,) or any time a Security Officer handles your footwear. So thats a total of 3 possible glove changes, I believe.

Here is what an amino acid looks like.
The 'N' group is converted to urea and excreted.
Everything else undergoes gluconeogenesis and turns into glucose. (And that R can be f-ing huge on some amino acids)
Getting glucose from protein is going to be better than getting straight glucose in the diet since protein has a higher Thermic Effect of Food (so more calories needed to digest it) and even so, it seems to have less of a correlation with body fat levels than the other two macronutrients in excess, but it can still contribute to body fat levels.
Honestly, putting the ridiculous amount of retard that is expressed in your post, let me give u a fucking explanation. Air cools as it rises. At a cruising altitude for a jet - 39,000 feet - air temperature is maybe -40C/F. At that temperature, the air can hold maybe a gram or two of water vapor. When the air coming out of jet engine, at around 1000F hits it, a lot of weird shit happens. The air coming out of the engine has been immensely compressed and heated up. The first thing that happens when it comes out is that it cools at an extreme rate. When this air cools, the compressed water vapor cannot be held in it anymore (look up what relative humidity is). Thus, the water vapor condenses as there is not enough room in the air for it to float around. there are your fucking contrails, twat.
>(12:54:47 PM) Adrian: What sort of content?
>(12:59:41 PM) bradass87: uhm… crazy, almost criminal political backdealings… the non-PR-versions of world events and crises… uhm… all kinds of stuff like everything from the buildup to the Iraq War during Powell, to what the actual content of “aid packages” is: for instance, PR that the US is sending aid to pakistan includes funding for water/food/clothing… that much is true, it includes that, but the other 85% of it is for F-16 fighters and munitions to aid in the Afghanistan effort, so the US can call in Pakistanis to do aerial bombing instead of americans potentially killing civilians and creating a PR crisis

Imho the most useful comment on that page:
> I know this has been said a thousand times before, but it seems that those that have a problem with this change don’t understand the difference between gender and sex.
> Gender is identity, how you or society identifies you by preconceived notions of what role your sex plays in that society. (male, female, transgendered, lesbian, gay, x, alien)
> Sex is biological. (male, female, unknown/other)
> Working in the medical field, specifically as a programmer that works on a EMR system for a large medical center, we have both sex and gender fields in many places. As the ISO 5218 standard states for SEX, not GENDER, we use MALE, FEMALE, OTHER/UNKNOWN and send only M,F, or U out to downstreams including government databases for SEX. For our gender field, there is a free text field.
There is a bijective map between the natural numbers and the rational numbers, but this map is not a homomorphism. That is, we may have f : Q -> N, but we won't have f(p*q) = f(p)*f(q) and f(p + q) = f(p) + f(q), where the first operations are in Q and the second are in N.
It occurs to me that maybe you mean, "forget about the operations in N and just use whatever they are from Q to force it into a field." Well, you could do that sure, but that's a little silly because then all you have is the rationals where every element has a different name. There's not really any point to it.
When people say the naturals don't form a field, they mean the naturals with the operations they've been endowed with, not some arbitrary operations you give them.
There are, however, jokes about Brits, Canadians, and Americans, and while they're obviously not entirely white nations, the stereotypes associated with them tend to be applied to white people within those countries.
I mean, picture a tea-sipping english gentleman with terrible teeth, a poutine-eating french-canadian lumberjack and a guy driving a jacked up ford f-350 with a gun rack. I would bet money that the images in your mind are of white guys.
Never, ever, burn bridges and always leave with class.
Agreed.. Rinse, wash, repeat.. walk away, move on if you have to, but that is still time invested in a company... Lifes a rough bitch and no one will blame you if you tell the guy to F himself, but been there and it didn't do a damn thing for me 4 years later.. however leaving with class has gotten me new opportunities every time
Glad to see the other side on this issue. My g/f had one (before I met her) and she doesn't regret it for a second, and said she'd do it again. Her only problem was that the asshole she was with at the time didn't go with her, so she had to ask a friend for a ride home. Makes me wish I'd have known her long ago.

I always thoughts it was gamefacks, like gamefacts, because it contains facts (walkthroughs) about games. You've got to realize, this was in the .com bubble, when rushing to get any domain, legible or not, was a race where a lot of big sites had names with little rhyme or reason, so gamefacts spelled gamefaqs made a lot of sense to me. Their logo didn't really help to distinguish this difference too, since the lettering was all uppercase and the same height.
Then one day a friend says, "You know it's Game-F-A-Qs, right?". Oh boy, did I feel dumb.

What? Just me? Seriously guys, It's a 3 and a 1/2 minute continuous shot that sets the tone for the film. I heartily recommend you to check out the whole film.
Knowing what key center(s) the chords create is a good start. It does not always tell you exactly what scales or notes to use because of stylistic variations.
E A F Em
There is no single key that fits all these chords. There are at least two keys.
First let's look at E and A. You can fit both into one key.
E and A can be the "I" and "IV" in the key of E major.
E and A can also be the "V" and "I" in the key of A major.
Depending on the style you could start with either the E or A major scale or the E or A major pentatonic scale.
E major: E F# G# A B C# D#
E major pentatonic: E F# G# B C#
A major: A B C# D E F# G#
A major pentatonic: A B C# E F#
I like the second choice (A major or A major pentatonic) because the upcoming F chord does not fit as easily with an E tonal center, even though that's the first chord. E as the tonal center would require a modal approach in the next two bars, which is not the first thing you want to learn. (It'll be the second thing!)
Now to the chords F and Em.
These may be the "vi" and "V" chords in A minor.
So to get a really simple solid approach to playing in a non-jazzy way over the progression, try just playing:
A major or major pentatonic for the first two chords, then A minor or minor pentatonic for the second two chords.
There are many other ways to do it, but this is a good start that lets you concentrate on your phrasing rather than jumping through lots of scales in your head.
The source of this thinking is knowing how to find all the chords in a key center. This is done by harmonizing the scale.
You create the chords I-vii by stacking 3rds above each note.
If the scale is A major: A B C# D E F# G#
it produces these chords:
I A C# E (A)
ii B D F# (Bm)
iii C# E G# (C#m)
IV D F# A (D)
V E G# B (E)
vi F# A C# (F#m)
vii G# B D (G#dim)
You're right. They tore it down in 1992. This is what it looks like now.
The Fox News story is just an AP repost. They don't have anything to do with the content of it.
There is nothing embarrassing here. =)
I'm certain his g/f is wonderful - and I have a great deal of respect for her for being able to keep up with him. You seem to be stuck in the notion that my life somehow revolves around this guy.
Nah. All I did was share a story. Nothing violating going on here.
Anyone looking to see this guy, he stands on the southbound exit ramp #112 Hudson Street. He tends to stand on the left side so you'd have to be ready to turn left to talk to him. There's not really any good places to park if you want to have him do anything longer than a few seconds and you're not prepared for it. I'm attaching a link to the location for anyone trying to find him: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=columbus+ohio&sll=37.055177,-95.668945&sspn=1.529944,1.972046&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Columbus,+Franklin,+Ohio&ll=40.014984,-82.994839&spn=0.000717,0...
Shit like this makes me sad for all those that don't see this as a possible choice in their lives. My g/f and I would happily build something like this together and both enjoy it quite a bit. Neither of us are fat, ugly or any of those stereo types. There are woman out there that love this shit as much as we do guys but they're usually hiding the same way we all are.
I can't be the only one. I'll save some people a little googling
Here is some food for thought from Dan Savage. Depending on the girl, you may want to watch it with her or not. You could certainly use some of his talking points in your discussions.
I'd suggest starting with a small finger vibe or one built into a soft plastic cock ring (like they sell at the drug store) that you use on her. Getting something small and non-threatening is the idea here. If you spring the monster that is the Hitachi Magic Wand on her out of the blue, she may freak out.
I once had my hair cutting shears in my carryon (had driven to my destination and was flying home), and the TSA guy took them out and said right to my face "Oh, my girlfriend will love these, she just graduated from beauty school." And he was dead serious. At that time (and maybe still) they had self-service machines where you could mail the items to yourself instead of having them confiscated. It cost me $35, but there was no way I was going to let that little f-er have my shears for his girlfriend.
Someone posted something like this showing 800gb and a bunch of asslickers were claiming it was 'illigitimate' use.
I have a friend who was using a cellular data service as her primary internet and she had a 50 gigabyte cap. But she still managed to hit it just watching youtube videos. 25 sounds horrible.
The other day I calculated that it works out to about 76kbits per second, barely faster then a 56k modem over time -- so the amount you could download is only a little bit more then what you could download with a regular modem going 24/7, if you didn't want to hit your cap.
I also calculated that Rogers (who I think had sent the other letter) Gave about 30% of it's annual income back to investors as dividends, instead of investing and updating it's infrastructure. With a cap that low, they're probably wanting to use the same infrastructure they setup during the modem days.
I looked up Primus Canada's wikipedia page and apparently they went bankrupt a few years ago. Oh, and:
> As of June 2010, the Better Business Bureau has given Primus Canada's Nova Scotia office an "F" rating for a number of issues including failure to respond adequately to customer complaints initiated through their service. The "F" rating is the lowest possible rating given by the BBB and refers to customer service over the past 36 months.
YAY FOR LOCAL MONOPOLIES!!!!
Probably because it's an exact repost of the AP's story... talk about preconceived notions!
With C# experience, you might want to look into XNA. I've heard good things about it, and it'll help you narrow down your google search, giving you much straighter answers.
Do I ever! Everyone knows that Meyer was a Washington DC socialite, painter, former wife of CIA official Cord Meyer and close friend of US president John F. Kennedy who was noted for her great beauty and social skills.
Heavier objects feel more gravitational force, according to F=m x g, where m is mass and g is the gravitational field strength. But we also know that heavier objects accelerate more slowly under a given force, according to Newton's second law: a=F/m. So if you take both of those into account, you'll find that the acceleration is always just g. This is called the equivalence principle.
I'm not sure what you're talking about with the spinning objects.
The Youth On Fire drop-in center was established in the fall of 2000 to provide a welcoming and non-judgmental environment for homeless and street-involved youth. YOF is open five days a week and serves young people between the ages of 14 and 24. YOF serves the physical and mental needs of these youth.
The center offers basic necessities. YOF has onsite hot meals, clothing, showers, and laundry facilities, as well as weekly medical care, mental health counseling, and referrals to community resources. The ultimate goal of YOF is to help as many youth as possible to have a healthy lifestyle, and seek greater stability through permanent housing, employment, or school.
Youth On Fire is located at 1555 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge. P (617) 661-2508 F (617) 661-2805
Monday: 11:00 AM to 8 PM
Tuesday: 1:00 PM to 6 PM
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday: 11:00 AM to 6 PM
(hot meals are served between 2:30 and 5:30 PM)

It's nice to see one huge circlejerk once in a while, but it should be kept fun, posts like this just spam my frontpage with BS I don't want to see.
You could've salvaged this by drawing an outrageously funny and over the top response, but instead you actually felt hurt at this shit.
WTF, why would you even give a fuck when somebody calls out your novelty account on the internet? Why don't you just ignore that shit and keep on drawing/animating good stuff? It's not like people don't want to see this anymore.
Instead you bore everyone with this whiny post. You'll get an A for effort and F for actually knowing what a novelty account is about.
Now go, Hivemind, downvote me because you DISAGREE.
> Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Wendy's, and Burger King, sell coffee at a similar or higher temperature.
This link doesn't really prove what you say it does, or if it does, I can't find it. Even at lower temperatures it's possible to get burns, it just doesn't happen anywhere near as quickly or as badly.
None of the links there show an actual temperature, they just say "burns happened, so obviously their temperature was just as high and it was equally dangerous". Faulty logic.
> The National Coffee Association of U.S.A. recommend that coffee is brewed at 195-205°F and maintained at 180-185°F.
That's a bit of a misquote. Let me get the actual quote:
> If it will be a few minutes before it will be served, the temperature should be maintained at 180 - 185 degrees Fahrenheit
They don't at any point say what the temperature it should be served at is.
You could also (reasonably, I think) claim there's a difference between coffee that seconds ago was brewed at home by hand then placed in a ceramic coffee mug and put on the table next to you, and coffee that is served for immediate consumption in a styrofoam cup to someone driving. Namely, the second one should probably be a lot cooler than the first one.
I.T. as well here, got laid off last year.
They tried to do it sneakily by asking other I.T. how much time it would take to fully lock me out, knowing that not only do I have access to everything, I also designed and implemented the whole rig. Turns out I'm a rather friendly guy and getting along really well with the employee I was managing at the time, so he told me what they were planning...
I sent an email to the CEO that night, probably about 2 pages long, explaining how I knew I was to be laid off, why I was ok with it, what went wrong with the company itself (downsizing for various reasons) and requesting to meet the next day.
He replied. We met, it was cordial and honest. I never really spoke much in the 4 years I worked there, so I told him everything about everything. I think it humbled him a little; He didn't seem like he expected to have a friendly and honest chat with somebody who didn't seem to give a flying F about getting laid off.
Couple of months later I contracted for them at 3 times my former employee hourly rate, yet we both got our money worth.
China does not see US Air Force as a threat - any war would require basing in Korea or Japan, Guam is too far away for fighter battles. Korea and Japan are not going to go to the mat over Taiwan. The US Navy is the threat, and they don't have F-22's and the F-35's they one day may get aren't made for playing at Mach 1.6 and 60K feet (not to say the Navy doesn't have SAMs).
This is all about pride and pushing the carriers far enough from the mainland to render them afraid to risk.
*depending on refueling and the 'legs' of the J-20, it could be a threat to AF bombers in Guam. TBD.
Disagree. The scene in the car-shop is easily the funniest scene in that film. "Well, we got your car back, ya it looks like it was left in a park overnight and some homeless dudes had an orgy in it. Also we think a mother racoon birthed a litter in the back, ya, her placenta blew out all over the back window. We also got this letter from the homeless guys 'Thanks for the F-Shack, Dirty Rob and the Gang' - Frankly we've never seen so much bodily and seminal fluid deposited into one location"
I never had a gf, so I'm not the one who you should listen to, but this is my view on game theory: They are not step-by-step instructions, they are just a general guide.
It's more like:
At least 10 (members of congress) were killed:
Sen. David Colbreth Broderick (D-Calif.) was killed on Sept. 16, 1859, in a duel.
Sen. Edward Dickinson Baker (R-Ore.) was killed on Oct. 21, 1861, in a Civil war battle.
Rep. Johnathan Cilley (D-Maine) was killed on Feb. 24, 1838, in a duel.
Rep. Cornelius Springer Hamilton (R-Ohio) was killed on Dec. 22, 1867, by an insane son.
Rep. James Hinds (R-Ark.) was assassinated on Oct. 22, 1868.
Sen. Robert F. Kennedy (D-N.Y.) was assassinated on June 6, 1968.
Sen. Huey Long (D-La.) was assassinated and died on Sept. 10, 1935.
Rep. Spencer Darwin Pettis (D-Mo.) was killed on Aug. 28, 1831, in a duel.
Rep. John McPherson Pinckney (D-Texas) was assaulted and killed on April 24, 1905.
Rep. Leo J. Ryan (D-Calif.) died from gunshot wounds received while visiting an American religious commune in Guyana on Nov. 18, 1978.
There's always going to be SOMEBODY out there who doesn't think ________ (in your case not giving oral) is a dealbreaker.
I, however, am a 25/f who thinks it's a dealbreaker if a guy doesn't perform oral. I ended things with a guy a couple months ago because he won't go down on girls. It's not that I couldn't live without oral, but as someone said above it's more a red flag of a general closed-minded attitude toward sex that I don't want to deal with. I want to find someone I can spend the better portion of my life with without getting tired of sex with each other, and if he's not even willing to explore oral I can't imagine what other things he'd refuse to explore and how quickly our sex life would dwindle.
>"It always frustrates me a bit when women don't keep track of their cycles, then suddenly there's a problem and they have no idea when their last period was," laments Gerald F. Joseph Jr., M.D., medical director for women's services at St. John's Regional Health Center in Springfield, Mo. "That information can be so important -- for a missed period, pregnancy, tubal pregnancy -- having a good menstrual history can start the doctor thinking in the right realm."
>I can't believe you skipped Linear Algebra!
Well it wasn't like "fuck this! I ain't takin' Linear Algebra!" It was more like I wanted to take the Wavelets and Fourier Analysis class (it was at the right time, and no Linear Algebra class was), and Linear Algebra was a prerequisite, so I was like "okay, I'll study that in preparation." By the way, Fourier Analysis is a really cool class with applications in a ton of fields. I would suggest taking it, especially if you like Linear Algebra.
>every function can be written as the sum of an even and and odd function
Hmm.... so the even function is (f(x)+f(-x))/2 and the odd function is (f(x)-f(-x))/2? That's kind of similar to wavelet analysis, where you break a function into its high frequency components and low frequency components (and do a lot of other cool stuff).
88 bucks for it on e-bay
it looks like he's using actual properties of the transistor for math at some point in the process, rather than just for logic. I wish I could see the details of the design
> I believe one of the reasons is that practice of the ideas is limited to a very small set of people: those select electrical engineers, who do chip design, in the analog domain, primarily using sub-threshold CMOS circuits.
The statement about chip design in the analog domain suggests that at some point he's using non max or ground outputs from transistors

Minimum wage? Ha, not even. Likely an unpaid intern. That said getting no reply generally means you are doing something wrong.
Best practices for getting a reply, A) write to your rep. It is amazing the number of people confused about this B) be registered, and registered at the right address, unless you are in k-12 they don't care about unregistered people. C) Be polite D) write to the local office, this is key, a lot less people write to the local, and the people there are much more used to actually doing something E) Write to the lowest level that has power to handle your issue. Your congressman is much more accountable to you than your senator (most of the time) F) Write, don't email, don't phone, don't fax G) Never ever send a form letter even in part. It gets you put on lists. H) Do your research, a note that they are on a particular committee, or acknowledgement that they aren't, will get you far. The people sorting your letters are almost all policy wonks, they intimately know committees, past actions, and friendships. Yet, they constantly have a stream of invective over stuff that is insane, not even their bosses problem, and arguing what is already the congresscritter's position. Showing that you follow politics enough to know your elected representative outside of what TV says is by far the best thing you can ever do (hell it is almost exactly what lobbyists do, and they are viciously effective)

YES. Goodness gracious people. I always explain it like this:
"Oh, you say you're not sure if Obama's an American citizen or not? Fine, I can clear this up for you in two seconds. First, do you believe that the United States government probably has an office somewhere of people whose jobs are to determine whether or not a Presidential candidate is valid as an American citizen?" (They answer, "Yes," or "I guess so," etc.) "Alright, now; is Obama the President of the United States?" (They answer, "Yes.") "THEN I GUESS HE'S A F***ING AMERICAN CITIZEN."
Tell that to her bank account. I think she's totally being reasonable. She has assets, her hands, that are worth literally millions of dollars. You and I can do just about anything with our hands, but if she were to do anything,that changed the shape, or texture or color of her hands she stands to lose millions of dollars.
I can totally understand her odd nature. She's been told time and time again that her hands are unique, perfect, desired, wanted, needed. It's got to F with your mind.
ohh... children pornography!

From your link, here is the madmans favourite video:
At 5:10 he puts the American flag on fire. Does this sound like something a teaparty/Palin fan would do?
Reading will help. Any genre, but someone with a bit of flair. F Scott Fitzgerald, George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, Douglas Adams, Andrea Camilleri etc. You don't want to rip them off, but it's a good start
Much better things than happened to me. Looking him up on facebook, he's married and owns a website. He had parents that always encouraged him to be successful (and were relatively successful themselves), and bought him whatever he wanted for his hobbies/education. He wasn't incredibly smart, but he took himself seriously and did everything well. Whereas I was always interested in learning just for the curiosity and saw no reason to work for an A when a B would do.
There was actually some amount of conflict between our parents, because his parents saw me and my parents as losers. I think he always had that viewpoint as well, but I was convenient for him because I was relatively tolerant and agreeable. I remember one car ride together when he listed all the different things that his parents had that mine didn't (i.e. big screen TV, 386 when all I had was C-64, etc.). At one point during this conversation I identified some logical fallacy that he made, and his mom at this point said, "yeah, you really slipped up there." Like, you know, she really wanted him to be good at putting people down.
He was my only friend from 3rd to 7th grade, though. TMI, I'm sure.
EDIT: This might be the best place to link to my favorite short story about random penis display.
I can't remember the name of the town, I think it started with a Y, so it might have been Young, Yass or Yamba (NSW) but we stopped for petrol, and there were three little Aboriginal kids, couldn't have been older than 5 or 6, riding around on their little bikes, swearing at each other like wharfies.
"Where are you goin', ya f*@in' little c*#t?" "Ahhh, ya f*@kin' c*#t."
I had the eerie feeling this is how others spoke to them, as well as how they spoke to each other. Couldn't get out of there soon enough.
Edit: It wasn't a Y, it was a W. It's Wilcannia. I remembered after reading a comment further down about Wilcannia. Sorry Young, Yass and Yamba!
...no?! watching those glorious clowns of Pubmasters might be the best homage the game may ever know!

It was built by me, my g/f at the time, and a good friend
I think most people underestimate how much work is required to run a site like this. Building it isn't enough. You need to be resourceful, clever, and a little bit ballsy to get it into the right hands and have it spread like crazy (at least at first). It has very little to do with the quality of the site or the code or the polish. Look at craigslist, for example.
Adding to johnflux and other's discussion:
Momentum can be mathematically shown to be conserved if the physical laws have translational symmetry in space. E.g., the fundamental laws of the universe are the same (F=m a, p=m v, etc.) if I define the origin of my coordinates to be my current location, or if I describe it to be the location 1 m to my left or any other place in the universe, or equivalently an experiment done at one location in space would be exactly identical if I moved the experiment 1 m to the left (also moving all the relevant parts of the experiment; which may or may not include the Earth). Similarly symmetry of translation in time in physical laws leads to conservation of energy (where I define t=0). The mathematics are explained with Noether's first theorem, though really should be introduced in the context of a proper mechanics course going into Lagrangians.
Or to look at it relativistically, symmetry of translation in space-time leads to conservation of four-momentum (which is a four-vector with Energy/c as the time component, and linear momentum as the three-vector).
Its worth nothing that physical laws do not immediately satisfy this translational symmetries. E.g., if you constructed the laws relative to a rotating reference frame (such as the surface of the Earth), you would find that physical laws are different depending upon your location on Earth and would measure centrifugal and Coriolis forces that would be location dependent. An experiment shooting a cannonball at the equator and at the 45 latitude would produce different results. (Only when you take into account the Earth and its rotation, do we find out the fundamental laws are symmetric.)
Why the physical laws of the universe are such that there is no preferred coordinate system for starting time or starting position is completely unknown, though there is a beauty and elegance in having simple symmetries in our equations.
As far as monster-dropped recipes, would it be terribly difficult to add in an "(A)nalyze item" option?
(At which point, you have the ingredients to make an Axe of Gimli, but you will have to take some turns to put it back together.)
I like the idea of experimenting with recipes, too -- if I have leather gloves and Gems of Mightiness, I ought to be able to divine the recipe for Gauntlets of Power -- but there are certainly drawbacks to that.
