    The government did orchestrate the construction of highways...at the expense of public transit. See the progressive documentary "Taken for a Ride" which talks about how automobile and oil lobbyist actions pretty much led directly to the destruction of railroads and buses. The result? America has a pretty sub par public transit system when compared to other "top tier" industrialized Western countries. It is not so different from the government "mandating" in 1973 that employers with large amounts of employees must give health insurance. The result? Health insurance companies now dominate, healthcare prices are skyrocketing, and our overall health not ranked very high when compared to other nations. Keep in mind that the government allowed health insurance companies to be exempt from antitrust laws, thus making the health industry much less competitive than it should be.

    Also, I don't know anything about economics; all I know is that many modern economists were "surprised" at the recent collapse, while certain individuals (Peter Schiff, for instance) saw it coming from miles away. I think this speaks to the inadequacies of current economic dogma.

    Finally, I hope that in future posts you will be more civil. Thank you.

    I'm not receiving any help from my parents, so I'll probably be about 150k in debt once I'm out which isn't too bad. I'm up for moving anywhere except California where the cost of living is high and the residency pay is actually on the low side of residency pay. On the issue of debt, it kind of bums me out how I'll take out more loans to start my own practice which will be like running a business. It's pretty much debt slavery, but at least I'll be improving lives. If I were doing this for the money, I would have done private equity.

    Eh, they're alot like Microsoft, Sony, and Adobe. A lotta things right, a lotta things wrong. They certainly could do a lot better, but I'm not going to write them off just yet. They have some gems. Anderson Cooper is great. Jack Cafferty has already been pointed out -- he and Lewis Black would be talk show dream team. Rick Sanchez is Twitter obsessed, but at least he has balls, and stands up for himself a lot of the time -- and often also catches some of those overlooked stories that reddit talks about quite often.

    They're certainly doing a lot better than the days of Bob Novak, Tucker Carlson, and Glenn Beck. Though I'd still love to see Lou Dobbs and Nancy Grace get the boot.

    You mean you haven't heard? Orly, that Orly, has been engaging in relationship with Glenn Beck.

    I hesitate to call it truly sexual in the traditional sense, since the only credible information has Mrs. Taitz pegging Glenny with a 14" black strap on whilst dressed in a mans two piece conservatively cut suit and wearing an Obama mask.

    It's been reported that she sings the Allman brothers hit "tied to a whippin' post" in Russian accented Moldavian. I believe the original song is over 23 minutes long, and Beck asks for repeated encores.

    That's whats up.

    I'll post the website as soon as I can find it again, I thought I had bookmarked it, but it looks like I forgot in my haste to post to reddit.

    This is heading towards "Teach The Controversy" bullshit. Believe it or not but there are some topics and issues that has one side that is correct and another side that it utterly wrong. And I do mean utterly. Not "it's a matter of opinion". Not "well, that's what I think". One side is right, the other side is wrong.

    Creationists use this kind of baiting to draw attention to their idiotic opinion. Engage in the debate. Have the conversation. Convince me with sound logic.

    There is a point where you say NO. No you will not engage fools and liars in debate. No, you will not make lists of for and against.

    Look outside America. The universal healthcare debate has been settled in every other modern society.

    Saint Somewhere is also in Florida. They only make two beers that get any distribution, Lectio Divina and Saison Athene, but they're both quite good. They seem to be entirely focused on Belgian styles, but I don't really know much about them beyond that.

    How about one of the top really small breweries for Cigar City? I don't know their exact production, but, according to their website, they only have a 15 bbl brewhouse and six fermenters, which is pretty damn small (I think). Their beers are among the most coveted in the country, anyway. Over all of their beers, they probably have one of the highest average review scores on BA and RB.

    I'll admit that it's hard to call them a top brewery when they produce so little and haven't produced all that many styles so far, but the beers that I've had from them have been outstanding (I really want more of that 110K+OT) and I've heard pretty much nothing but raves from others, a pretty rare feat given the highly fickle nature of the beer geek community. What brewery of that size would you put ahead of them?

    I had to deal with verbal and physical abuse everyday in a math class(the teacher would always stroll in 1 minute after the incident) and I basically played the psycho card. After maybe three weeks of crap, right as the guy was coming toward me as I sat at my desk I jumped up, grabbed him by the neck and shoved him up against the chalkboard and told him "Leave me the fuck alone." It worked. Your antagonist is dominating you. You just have to show him you're not going to take his shit and he will back off. Chicken yard hierarchy.

    >It's not dormant anymore, but we aren't racing anyone, they're just playing catch up. At least until this recent development.

    China and Russia both have IBMs, and have nuclear weapon technology. It's not how many nukes you have, five is enough to devastate even the largest countries.

    >You can say we had no business being there, or you can say Russia secretly funding overthrows of democratic nations is a threat.

    The US was doing the same thing. It wasn't the "communist threat," it was about limiting the already weakening influence that the USSR had. WWII had devastated the USSR and the country was economically weak after it. They knew then they couldn't compete with the US in an arms race, and their internal documents show that.

    >But Afghanistan based Al Queada, Osama Bin Laden and the organizations that made 9/11 happen.

    bin Laden was also in and out of Pakistan (an ally but a weak govt.) and Saudi Arabia. There are terrorist organizations in all of them because they vehemently oppose US intervention.

    I'm sorry but you do not define what is normal. Humans have existed for millenia and puberty evolved for a reason. The social constructs created may define child pornography as it wishes, but they do not represent abnormal or immoral behavior since the variousness of the human species ensures that millions of teenagers are in fact, perfectly capable or more capable and ready for relationships than those above the arbitrary lines drawn by society.

    According to your viewpoint, for example, there are many foreigners whose countries are populated by "pedophiles" and they are Western European countries. Some countries might define child pornography as anything up to 25 years old. And what would you say to that?

    As I said, you do not define what is normal. You define what social constructs and laws are placed upon younger people. If you lived in a country where 20-25 year olds were "children" you would be here spreading your ignorance and stupidity in a similar manner.

    > But an adult who wants to fuck kids is beyond wrong. There is no equality in that kind of act. It is an abuse of power.

    "Wrong?" You don't even know what you are talking about. Saying something is "wrong", without explanation shows how shallow and dependant your bigotry is on your local domestic laws and social environment. You've already contradicted yourself by pretending that youth does not have power roles over one another and pretending they can't exploit one another. And youth can exploit and manipulate older people too, quite easily in fact.

    > Putting them in the same sentence is pretty damn sneaky, but they have nothing to do with each other. It's almost as though you're saying that abolishing lobbyists means people won't be able to express their opinions to their representatives directly. You aren't that dishonest are you? Are you a lobbyist?

    I am not a lobbyists. I am not even American. I just lack so much democracy in my country that I wish I could be heard like Americans get heard frequently. You have a Congress were people's ideas are actually heard, even if not passed. The sentiment of Congress sometimes emulates the sentiment of the people (even if the actions of congress diverge from that sentiment). That is a lot more than I can say for my own government.

    Lobbies and getting heard have a lot to do with each other. In a nation of millions, with few representatives, there is, simply, no logistics or technology in existance that will allow representantives and other elected officials to hear every one of their constitutents individually. Lobbies exists to streamline this process. It may not be their original intent, or even what they are used for now, but they can certainly be used that way.

    I am not advocating the status quo. I am simply saying that outlawing something we don't understand / fear / randomly attribute blame to, may be dangerous. We can reform so that things get used as they are supposed to. The "legalese reason" for lobbies is that they are mechanisms for people to get heard. I say "fine, then let's reform so that they are actually used this way".

    > Most other developed democratic counties prohibit them, and most of them are doing a heck of a lot better than we are on almost every metric

    I guess it depends on how you chose the metrics... Also, consider that no other developed democratic nation has a population of more than 300 million, like the US has. Also, Japan, not a democracy.

    Sorry no, police officers have one of the hardest most stressful jobs with a myriad range of saleries from actually decent to poverty level low.

    Show me a cheap, reliable camera/sound recording device under a pound and im down for it.

    And the review board could be free of police influence as long as they have no acutal authority and just advise and offer their opinion as to what the outcome should be but then have the elected and appointed officials.....wait I just realized that the governing body that does review all these actions is a publicly elected government, be it local, state or federal, why not hold our elected officials more accountable for our police forces? Isn't that part of their duties?

    Are you serious? Do you know how statistical sampling works? Picking and choosing? This is a perfect example of why trying to bring science into a highly politicized discussion area is well nigh impossible. Confirmation bias is what's for dinner.

    Let's recap - you take a study by epidemologists with PhD's working as researchers at a major university who got a paper about this stuff published in a presumably peer reviewed journal and dismiss it with 'in my opinion these are nothing more than scare tactics...their figures are far too small.'

    At the same time when arguing for your position you cite a website that cites 'a study in Texas' done by someone questionably within his field, not peer reviewed, nor published, and which is about crime among ccw holders, when the issue in question is the effectiveness of carry for self-defense!

    Good luck to you. Religion isn't for everybody--I'd say that those of us who actively need a deity of some nature in our lives are the vast minority (and I'll freely admit that every one of us in that minority is incredibly fucked up). There are more that *want* a deity but don't need it, possibly representing a plurality of the population at this time (less fucked up than my group, but still a group with major issues).

    I would see about moving away and getting a clean start. Yes, this may mean separating yourself from the rest of your family (hopefully you can relocate with your wife). There are a few cities that I'd suggest, first and foremost being Austin, Texas. It's an inexpensive city, and there are jobs to be had there. Also, with the University of Texas's flagship campus in town, there is a vibrant atheist community. Check Craigslist for job postings in your industry.

    I must ask how your wife feels about your apostasy (the technical term for turning away from any belief system, but foremost applied to religion). If she's in a similar boat, that's great. Run away together and escape the hell that is the Mormon idea of Heaven on Earth\*. If she's tied to the faith, you may need to get a divorce. If you do find you need to do so, for the love of all that is good in the world, move to Texas and file in our courts. She may wind up with half of your current assets, but that's it--we have no alimony here.

    I sincerely hope that you may soon find happiness. I may be a religious sort, but if happiness for you is a life without a deity, live that life to its fullest.

    \*I find it amusing how one man's heaven can be his son's hell.

    Due to the doctrine of MAD, it's very arguable that nuclear weapons actually benefit the world in some way--hence the relative 'peace' of the Cold War.

    That being said, not having blood on one's hands doesn't rid him or her of guilt. That means that the politicians who order the wars are just as guilty of the outcomes of those wars as the soldiers thrusting the bayonets are. Do you disagree? Of course you do because you're a fucking delusional, war-profiteering idiot helping to maintain a brutal occupation of a downtrodden people for corporate oil interests.

    No, I'm not fucking related to TurdFurgeson, I just hate war profiteers and think our soldiers are mercenaries. That whole 'fighting for our freedom' propaganda is just that: propaganda perpetuated by the guvment.

    Feel free to disagree with me and make a counter-argument regarding the ethics of my worldview, or whether or not soldiers are fighting for my freedom.

    what mental damage? well geez i dunno.. how about waiting 23 years to finally have sex with a girl i actually love then finding out i cant even feel anything... that's pretty hard on the ego... if a girl thinks an uncut dick is repulsive, chances are she's a dirty whore anyways, so who cares?

    Just because its seen as "normal" to be cut in the US doesnt make it OK. It should be more than obvious that they use propaganda to make us think circumcision is normal and useful.

    Take for example the studies in kenya where they said that it reduced HIV by 60% after a 2 year study... yet if you look at the last 30 years of US history in circumcision vs HIV, it was at it's highest right after circumcision was its highest... circs were basicly forced on every boy in late 60s early 70s and the HIV rate was at its highest about 15 years later, as in, those young boys grew up and contracted HIV.

    To look down at my penis every day and see that it has been cut and torn apart without my consent and with no real regards to my well being (i had lung problems as a child and it wasnt taken in consideration it could have easily killed me) is pretty fucked up. And to know that I'll never really be able to know what it is to make love with my girlfriend is even more fucked.

    I've been working IT since I was 18. I have just worked my way up. I have worked for 3 companies, probably 7 or 8 different positions. There is no real secret to it, just hard and long work. I try to do the best job I can and try not to complain to much. I am always trying to learn new things.

    The only advice I would have in regards to IT career is that some companies reward better then others and are joy to work at. Others are not. It's better to take a low level shitty position at a good company then a good position at a crappy company.

    If you are at a crappy company, work on your self (self study, college, etc) till you are in a position that makes you attractive to hire at one of the good companies.

    I started on help desk. During my downtime I was reading system admin and programming books. Most everyone else there was just surfing the web or playing flash games, etc.

    I also started volunteering for things to help the local system admin out. Stuff I could do, but stuff that was a burden to him. Swapping tapes, changing cables, running auto-installers, etc. I never got paid extra for that stuff, but eventually I was helping him out so much that they promoted to do it full time as assistant [to the :)] system admin.

    Investments - The secret here, is not what you invest in; but the frequency. Try to save/invest every month, even if it's $10. Every little bit counts. Do it every month without fail. Try to find ways to maximize the amount you can invest every month.

    Any interest, earnings or dividends should be re-invested on themselves. Get low load, low fee funds (like vanguard index trackers). Don't go with those fancy funds that your broker suggestions (most have huge fees and loads).

    Something like sharebuilder, vanguard, treasury direct and ing savings/cds should get you started.

    Books I would suggestion are a Random Walk Down Wall Street, the intelligent investor and any college level text on Personal Finance (get an actual text book used for a college course). Stay away from all those "Get Rich Quick" books and all this "Dave Ramsey and Sue Oreman" junk. Learn math, learn basic financial math. Learn self-discipline.

    Go to community college for the math and finance classes if you have to, it's well worth the investment. Stay far away anything that tries to "simplify" or "make you rich".

    Study it to learn. Study it to understand. Do it regularly.

    Building a bank account is like building muscles. You don't build nice biceps in one "lucky" workout... or whatever... You build nice biceps by working them regularly.

    I agree with all three of you except I'm thinking what if gangnet is too much of a "standard" used to label gang members thus taking the "eye" off of ones that have been able to slip out of this database. I mean they have the database, great, but what do you do with it to actually make an impact on gang activity more than just "list" people. Its just like websites that label pedophiles. Great too, they should be shamed and ruined for life on a website, however the point isn't to just "document" people and hope that does something!

    Absolutely. For seven years, I was horribly addicted to chewing tobacco (Skoal Cherry), and would go through a tin or so a day. I tried quitting several times, but kept going back (dip has a lot more nicotine than cigarettes, so the withdrawal is even more brutal).

    Anyway, I decided to try to quit again, and just vape up whenever I felt the craving. I spent the first 3 or so days vaping regularly, and then tapered it off as the cravings subsided (about 2 weeks total). It was a minor miracle... The weed made my withdrawal entirely tolerable. In fact, I'd honestly say it was easy. One of the great shames of marijuana prohibition is that it's preventing tobacco users from using a no-pain approach to quitting that nasty habit.

    If you have the mj available, I can't recommend this enough. I've been off tobacco for two years. Obviously, you'll also want to drink lots of water during the process -- it's important to flush out your system.

    Best of luck!

    In VA the class for carrying is sort of silly. It's one hour. Then you get fingerprinted(!) and 40 days later they send you the card, which you laminate yourself.

    I only started carrying after a psycho husband threatened me (and I never even touched his wife, he was crazy.) But it scared me pretty bad. So I bought a very good ankle holster. I carried every day for about 5 months. It's kind of cool, it actually feels normal to have the gun against you, and when you stop you feel naked. I was wearing a 38 with a holster under scrubs. you cant even tell it's there.

    we don't date fossils with carbon-14 dating. That is reserved for organic material aged between a few hundred years old and up to 70000 years old (by which time we can no longer detect measurable amounts of the isotope). Fossils by the way have all material replaced by minerals (hence no organic matter).

    Other radiometric methods are available for ages greater than 70kya and overlap. These are used on volcanic rocks (but not sedimentary rocks where fossils are found). We can form a map of the entire geological column using this and work out the approximate age of fossils in sedimentary rocks this way (by dating volcanic rocks on either side).

    This is obviously a very simplified description of dating. If you want better resources I can provide you with links..

He also ordered individual investors are to be paid before institutions in distributing any eventual assets."

    After his 25 year prison time, which yes, could be potentially shortened, how is the guy going to come up with the money to pay for it? How does anyone who perpetrates a crime like this? Do they just bounce back up on their feet and start making millions to pay back?

    You could make a basic economic argument:

    Health care is a scare resource. There isn't an unlimited amount of doctors and facilities in the US(or anywhere for that matter). So the core of the argument is how do you ration it. "Rationed" health care is a loaded term, because it brings up images of huge lines, etc. But it's just a term used to distribute a scarce(in economic terms) resource.

    The way it is rationed now is about money. Not everyone is willing and able to enter the healthcare market. This makes the resources available to those who value them the most(pay the most money for them).

    The reason why the GOP is so against reform, because they are run by rich, who are in the best position in the market. They don't see a problem, because when it comes to getting healthcare, they are getting all they need. A public option, or any kind of government system designed to take their share of the healthcare resources and give it to those that can't enter the market is seen by them--and rightfully so--as taking healthcare away from them.

    Note I don't actually believe healthcare should be run solely on economics, but that's about as sound an argument I could make for the status quo at 1AM.

    They still tend to do a fair bit of swapping on your OS drive, but in your case it probably more comes down to heat/weight/battery life.

    I haven't used any of the newer SSD's so I can't vouch for them but the older ones seemed fairly equal in battery drain under fair load, they did seem to use less in light usage (I always figured it was probably to do with HD spin down timers so it's probably situation dependent anyway). I'm told the new ones are fairly light on the power and physically noticeably lighter but YMMV.

    Heat is the big winner in my experience - a friends ball-frying laptop became a lot more tolerable after he stuck an SSD in it.

    As I said, the reason why it's not watered down is because it isn't as popular as other martial arts. When martial arts had a boom of popularity in the 60s-70s, tons of people who weren't qualified decided to capitalize by opening their own schools. Yes, there were legit people with schools as well but amidst all of these others.

    So students go, get trained by these sham people and know no better, and some of them open up their own schools, so on and so forth. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is experiencing a popularity boom in this past decade and I have in fact heard of a couple of sham instructors, but it's just not at that level yet.

    Part of what keeps things like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo harder to BS is that they're quite often focused around competitions/tournaments which are full contact. Not to mention there's always full contact rolling in class, so if you're instructor wasn't any good he'd get exposed pretty fast.

    Edit: To point out how much I think the full contact matters: Kyoshokin Karate is one of the styles left thats very martially effective because they too practice full contact.

    Before you take your next job, make it a point to talk to the person you will be reporting to if you were to take that position (assuming they made you an offer). The quality of your time at the workplace depends a lot on your relationship with the boss and on how good the boss is. I have worked with totally useless nuts and with a really inspiring boss (he's a famous person in the Graphics industry). I know the difference it makes.

    Also when you are speaking to a potential boss, if you see someone who thinks long term, seems like a sensible person to talk to etc., you may want to pursue those avenues further.
