Curing cancer won't make you live longer. Hell, researching medical immortality has a slim chance of producing any measurable results in your own life.

Game on.

p.s. mediocrity is killing us

Dingo there's no need to be a fucking pedant about something that is so plain. Neutering is NOT "an unnecessary surgery that is not widely practiced". Neutering is highly effective at REDUCING aggression. As you suggested, if you are not breeding then you do not need an intact dog for a PET.

Why do you need the extra aggression? Why would you recommend that people not neuter? These are powerful breeds who can do great damage. All dogs need skill AND DEDICATION to keep under control. Neutering is an effective and absolutely necessary tool in maintaining control over a powerful breed.

@1 Rachael Maddow did a run-down of the NBC broadcaster's comments on Weir. That's where I saw it and I think you're right.

I expected liberal use of Amen Breaks. And lo' it was delivered.

A young black man was basically race-baited into a fight. There's no pleasure in that.

Yea I'm glad the old guy was able to defend himself (albeit robbed), but not encouraged by him being a typical old man jackass (confrontational, "what's your problem", unsympathetic).

@19 I think you mean to say they aren't Software Engineers.

You can bang out some great algorithms or a couple thousands of lines of code, but getting your requirements and seeing your risks ahead of time is a separate discipline.

So Apple refusing Flash (or Flash Light) on the iPad isn't about their control over the platform or AT&T's control over the content delivered on their network... it's about making sure the iPad is simple enough for the Internet dunces to use.

Holy shit that's the biggest logical leap I've read so far this year.

My 13-yo self wants to cut you.

@13 I was under the impression that the liquor stores I go to are franchisees operating under govt. license. It's not a fucking public service like a library.

I'm glad the big G finally filled in all the social networking problems with reader. Can't wait until they give me access... right now I feel snubbed ;)
