I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon these principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

— William Tyler Page, The American's Creed

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its {just} laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies {who have done us direct harm}.


Don’t know that it is or should be a duty to love it, as that seems like blind patriotism and nationalism, and respect the flag also seems more of the same. I perfectly understand if others disagree.

Something like:

Sudo, S-U-D-O, is a computer command that originally stood for "superuser do". When you type it in, it gives another command full access to the system. So it's like a master key, only administrators have it.

Discord is a voice communication and chat room application more like ventrillo and teamspeak than skype.

It allows users to setup "servers" which are their own group of voice and chat channels.

The biggest difference between discord or other applications in its competition field are that all discord "servers" are hosted on discord servers an as far as I know are free. This means there is no need for peer to peer connections or renting a hosting server at the cost of being reliant on the up time of discord servers (which I have personally found to be quite good).

Additionally discord also has a webapp (browser application for those unfamiliar with the term webapp) allowing a user to join a discord server and use both voice and text chat without ever having to download and install a standalone application.

So it’s IRC with voice chat?

I was in Germany in April on my spring break. I wore shorts one day (it was 65 degrees F). Several Germans approached me telling me to go home and change because it was too cold and I was risking getting sick (I don't speak German so my friend had to translate this to me). It was surprising how many strangers were concerned about my health.

Man I go out for a smoke in shorts and a T-shirt sometimes in single digit temperatures with snow on the ground.

I remember a post like this a while ago where a lot of the comments were people who genuinely didn't know the left lane is for passing only. It's not the "fast" lane. It's not just for cruising in. It's for passing. That's it. Pass and then get back to the right. If everyone on the road followed this simple formula, the roads would be way easier to get around on.

RobertAPetersen 13 points

That might be because that’s not true everywhere.

Some states don’t signify that the left lane is a passing lane or for passing only.

Granted if someone is driving faster you should get over to allow them to pass, but there’s no restriction that the left lane is only for passing purposes.

No, he cheated on his wife with the hooker/porn Star.

I think.

It’s hard to keep track of which wife at the time and which sex worker. I mean it gets to the point where it might be more accurate to say he cheated on the hooker by getting a wife.

It was a perfectly decent film, some bits were even great, and I’m sure as shit not a Disney shill.

Although if Disney is reading this, I gladly accept payment in bitcoin.

Remember when Obama wanted to get us into a war in Syria and depose Assad and was only stopped by the overwhelming response from the people?

Any FTL travel would just be time travel in my opinion. As someone wrote above, you are going to run into causality issues as soon as you reach c, no matter how you do it. If you are reaching c in normal space, or somehow going through a dimension or wormhole or whatever, you are going to end up farther away than the light (and information) that you left behind.

RobertAPetersen 5 points

And now I’m trying to remember the name of a sci-fi book that dealt with this. I seem to recall very specific rules being adhered to when using FTL travel as to not intentionality break causality as far as things like economics / insider trading and such. Really bothering me that I can’t remember the name or author.

Corporations, Apple is by no means the only one that does this, go out of their way to pay as little taxes as possible. For example, thy locate their headquarters in Ireland or Isle of Man where taxes are lowest.

Technically they pay their taxes, but if they didn't do everything in their power to lower their tax obligations, those obligations would easily double.

RobertAPetersen 11 points

If they also didn’t do everything in their power (legally) to lower their obligations the shareholders would have a field day and ask for the boards heads.

Everything within their power legally - including changing the laws to benefit themselves and hiring lobbyists to prevent accidental loopholes from being closed?

RobertAPetersen 2 points

Well I mean yes. That’s s all within the scope of the law. Not saying I like it but it’s perfectly legal and expected.

Twin Galaxies is more than weird. All you need to see to know this is how they've pussyfooted around accepting 5.57 as the best possible time in the game (and instead holding up the no-evidence 5.51 as the record) to know how lousy an organization they are.

RobertAPetersen 2 points

The guy that claims the 5.51 was on the Ben Heck Show and they tried recreating the time with computers and perfect timing. They couldn’t.

Part I:

Part II:

The guy comes off to me as completely full of shit. Oh, they did manage 5.57, which is the legit fastest time.

Oh man! Another Trump joke! You should be a comedian, you are so original...

According to South Korean leadership, President Trump’s very public responses to North Korea’s threats were a major factor in the recent communications between the two nations. Their leadership went on to praise the US President for the way he handled the situation, as they believe that his statements kickstarted talks between the Koreas that haven’t taken place in years.

You can Google it if you haven’t already read it. You can also downvote me for stating a fact. I already know which avenue most of you will choose. Please prove me right.

RobertAPetersen 8 points

You’re overreacting.

Also OP stated a fact. Trump literally made the comparison so take it up with the President.
