We could go and loot a few coffee shops and leave foam darwinians at the scene? Free television coverage for introversion!

And that explains why, I just got a notification that the appengine datastore is experiencing problems. So it' a problem with appengine not just NP. Once it clears up you'll be able to see here:

Out of sheer curiosity, what things are some other guns designed to do which doesn't involve killing, maiming or seriously injuring? Most .22's, for example, are designed and built with "plinking" in mind. A good chunk of the rifles, and nearly all shotguns, as well are made specifically ...

Someone has to get within 5 feet for it to be dangerous though, that's somewhat harder then getting within 100ft with a gun. And of course running away from a gun isn't terribly useful! Also, the potential for large scale damage with a gun is so much higher than with any kind of melee weapon. To tak...

The exception may be when moving from one paradigm to another---after spending 20 years working with languages like BASIC, C/C++, php, and python, I tried to learn Haskell. That was difficult. Rewarding, but difficult. I had the same experience with Haskell, when I started it I hated it because it ...

This discussion came up on another forum, where the guy already knew some programming basics and I recommended taking the 7 languages in 7 weeks approach - throw yourself really rapidly at a load of very different concepts/languages and you'll learn the basic concepts each is trying to teach without...

I'm also with Jordy... on this one. As a free citizen I have a right to privacy which includes the right to be let alone.
