    I just barely signed up for it after I visited a doctor 2 days ago... it cost me $75 just to have a doctor look at my foot for no longer than 2 seconds (I have an infected ingrown toenail). He said he couldn't touch it and I'll have to come back in a couple days after some antibiotics. The next visit will be another $75. That's only for him to LOOK at it... NOT including the actually surgery which will be around $300+. It's a fucking joke when you're living paycheck to paycheck and cannot afford such things. Looks like nothing but Top Ramen for the next 2 weeks...

    EDIT: This could be in the wrong category.. not CURRENTLY covered but will be soon :)

    :< This really pains me to hear. At least BenzaClin worked for you some, but yeah, the cost is frustrating. Yeah, I think some people do have much more serious cases of acne... The only thing I can say is, whatever medications/soap you choose to use, I do think it might still be helpful to ensure that you sleep on something entirely clean each night for maybe 7 days or something, just to see if it causes at least some improvement. Because imagine how hard you're trying to get rid of your acne, and then imagine how much cancellation of your efforts you might be doing if you let your face rest against... what was a bacteria breeding ground for me... for six to eight to even ten straight hours every night.

    Whatever happens, I wish the best luck to you, and congrats on being a mom. :)

    Ah I see - yes, the way I had read it was that feralkitten said that he carried a .22 in his laptop bag, and the_answer_is_42 asked him where he lived so as to understand why he felt he should carry a gun around for protection.

    I was curious about this myself, and wondered whether it was a quiet town, or the middle of a city, or a dodgy neighbourhood (just for clarification/scope) and was honestly shocked that he had gotten downvoted for asking the question. I thought the question was, as you said, the very center of the discussion.

    > Yes, we do pay health care cost for poor people some of the time.

    Still not getting it. You pay for it _all_ of the time. It gets cycled back into the economy.

    > But the way it is now, these people have to jump through some hoops to get service. You will really take it up a notch when you make them card-carrying members of a health plan, and send the bill to Uncle Sam.

    I think you don't quite understand the details of how medicaid, medicare and proposed changes to health care legislation will work. There is no plan under which someone could get a magic "charge it to the government card" and walk into any hospital and get all the free coverage they want.

    In the end, you can pay for public health indirectly and have very little way to control the costs, or you can put together programs to directly handle the issue and hope to control costs that way.

    > And why wouldn't you rather save two lives for one? Seems like an easy decision especially if you are not personally vested.

    No. The reason is that we do not have a single "global economy". If an American saves some Africans, there will be no Africans who will then pay taxes to save the American back. If an American saves another American, that second American will contribute tax dollars back to the healthcare system - or at least there is a very high chance he will. See how it works?

    After 30 years, who gives a fuck. This sex thing America is obsessed with is ridiculous. Do you know that mankind for thousands of years saw nothing wrong in a 13 year old getting married and having sex. And in our own country, the USA, it used to be legal to marry your 13 year old cousin. Do you know that Romeo and Juliet were underage, children by today's standards? Do people understand that this too young for sex thing is all in their heads and that the only natural determination recognized down through the ages for sex and marriage was 1st menstrual period?

    I had sex at 16 and so did many of my contemporaries. Some started earlier at the age of 14 or 15. Some start later. None of us ended up in jail back then. Today, they want to send high-school kids to jail for sex. How ridiculous.

    What is really irritating is how young women willingly or intentionally have sex and then testify against a man. The woman had pleasurable sex and the man goes to jail. How fair is that?

    It's okay. I've never had a girlfriend either.

    Then again, I'm a (primarily) heterosexual woman.

    EDIT: No, wait, I guess I did have a girlfriend, my ex turned out to be trans. But he was physically male when we dated.

    EDIT2: You know, I'm guessing that this isn't helping at all. Oh well, I can have an off night once in a while, can't I? Also my space key is borked so my usual long posts are no longer fun to type as I must slam the spacebar with the force of 10,000 suicide bombers to separate my words.

    "I think it is very, very unhealthy for her to pander to these Internet perverts" you mean yourself included?

    sorry i couldn't help it, anyway it's really up to you

    option #1- DONT tell your parents or friends, bc that wont help anything, but do talk to her like dove4med says

    possible consequences-- she freaks out for you seeing it and for thinking that its any of your business and hates you for months or years (likely) no matter how sensitive you are (which depends on your relationship with her)

    OR she is open about it (depending on relationship) and you help maintain her innocence and sense of self-esteem/respect

    option #2 dont talk to her or anyone else

    possible consequences--

    she dives deeper and deeper into a world of sexual perversion, losing all self respect/esteem, eventually turning to drugs and/or prostitution, which in turn causes a rift in your family leading to divorce, depression, and possible suicides (OK a lil over the top)

    OR nothing happens at all and she grows up and out of this harmless and typical phase

    Like i said, it's really up to you and ultimately we cant help you decide because you know her better than we. some girls would grow out of this and for others its only the start

    my advice? sounds like you have a solid family and if things got worse or really out of hand your whole family would come to the rescue

    This is a good method. I was also agonising on what to buy to treat myself. I made a list of a couple of things and then calculated the $/hr cost of enjoyment. I compared it to things I already enjoy and do occasionally.

    My car: $16.50 /hr

    New Computer: 50c/hr

    Telescope: $11/hr

    Going to a movie: $5.50 /hr

    A steak dinner: $10.20 /hr

    Clearly, the new computer gave me the most enjoyment for the least cost, and I never bought the telescope. I was already spending so much per hour 'enjoying' my car each day and I had no problem buying that. So this calculation really put the purchase into perspective.

    >The two concepts seem don't seem to connected beyond certain irresponsible assholes with psychological problems rationalizing harassment via private property.

    >Blaming an external concept such as private property takes away the issue of individual responsibility, methinks.

    I don't think so at all. While of course individuals have responsibility for their actions it is the social system which "naturally selects" the kind of personality people will develop. So in a system where outright psychopathy can be beneficial in accumulating wealth (and thus social status), it is no wonder that elements such as greed or disregard for human suffering prosper as memes.

    Blaming a concept such as private property then is not simply redirecting the issue but actually trying to find the causes of the sickness rather than fighting the symptoms.

    I don't see what the big deal is here. It sounds like the article refers to people somehow using Nvidia drivers on non-Nvidia hardware for the purpose of GPGPU-accelerating the PhysX library. It also sounds like they are still leaving the door open for ATI and other vendors to write PhysX support into their own video drivers.

    From a technical standpoint, it should be pretty obvious why Nvidia doesn't want to expend Q&A and R&D to support hardware they don't even sell.

    Correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't it each vendor's responsibility to support only their own hardware?

    Nah, he just writes down your name to see if that name comes up again anytime soon.. then he will remember who you are.. etc.. You got labeled as a troublemaker in his book, so troublemakers have one thing in common- they can't help but fuck up again sometime real soon- so you may as well get their license information *now* while they are not running away from you. Repeat offenders realize after a while that cops know their routine and when they are bored they can just sit and wait for a behavior modification opportunity- it's a good way to blow off some steam- take a punk you know is a punk and scare him a bit in the hopes he gets some sense between his ears before he does something *really* stupid that winds up making his ass the playground of several large men in a tiny locked cell.

    > Chile's unemployment is worse than most of South America.

    That is a quite misleading picture, unemployment is measured in completely different ways in different countries, and Chile is considerably more honest about its number than places like Argentina that pretty much make them up completely from thin air, plus those measurements were done at different times, neither of this huge issues affect any of the indicators I posted (that obviously doesn't mean they don't have flaws, but they are much more useful in comparing countries).

    Income inequality is totally worthless, it says nothing, and just looking at how many totally wrecked African countries have such incredibly low 'income inequality' index should be more than enough.

    > A couple of pictures either way doesn't prove anything.

    A couple of pictures, or even a thousand statistics, don't prove anything, that is precisely why I put 'proof' in quotes.

    In my humble opinion, how the socialist governments that replaced the (insanely abusive) dictatorship continued exactly the same economic policies (and in some cases even pushing them even further) is a pretty good indicator that they were quite successful and popular.

    Yes, as far as joining a gang. They will use you for their own ends. It can be anything from keeping contraband in your cell to assaulting another inmate for them. Get caught doing any of that and you will just add years onto your sentence, along with loss of privileges. They appear to offer protection to some people, but they will turn on their own at the drop of a hat if you screw up or don't toe the line with their stupid gang rules. Then you have to worry about getting stabbed by one of the gang you originally joined for protection. Hiding contraband for higher up members goes on all the time, and people got busted all the time.

    Not that many people take advantage of the educational programs they offer. To be honest many of these people have severe mental issues. Some of them didn't even belong in prison, they belonged in a mental hospital and were in need of serious help. Our prison system seems to be a net that catches all of rejects of society, whether they belong there or not.

    Most inmates pass the time doing 3 things, watching TV, exercising, or reading. I really didn't notice anyone make a huge turn around for the better, infact, I would see someone get out and 6 months later they would be back again. You see many many repeats (especially thieves and drug related offenders).

    >I think that some kind of Q&A session involving the jury and the counsels would be handy. Consisting of issues relevant to the case, but maybe not considered important by either side.

    i'm sad that I laughed when I read this... I laughed because that that concept is WAY too logical to even be considered. The justice system has become more like a game.. it is more about the attorneys, judges and police than it is about the defendants and evidence.

    It sounds like you are suggesting he may not be innocent, but the prosecution didn't do a good enough job to prove anything one way or another. Sad again.. this time without a chuckle.

    His whole counterargument is: "Oh my, you've offended my delicate sensibilities. (Fans air towards face) I'm about to be overcome by the vapors. Oh me oh my."

    The sickening part is that the whole group on that show treat the debate like sixth grade girls, discussing in endless detail which of their peers has crossed which arbitrary social boundary. They're at the same high level of debate as "Did you hear what Janey said at recess about Rebecca?"

    Meanwhile, in the real world, people are getting shafted by out of control medical bills faster than ever.

    I know a lot of you immediately blame the democrats for being spineless, and they are, a little bit. But when you've got the shiftless and juvenile media twisting everything you do into a false scandal, I can see why a lot of democrats became pussies. Hopefully Grayson is the first of many to buck the trend.

    Once upon a time, I was fired under similar circumstances (Read:Yeah, I generally deserved it, but if my boss had liked me, they probably would have kept me.) I was still awarded unemployment although my former employer fought it. I don't think quitting wil help the situation at all.

    Follow through on the mental health checkup, by any means necessary. A diagnosis of ADD revolutionized my life, even if I still don't "believe" in it. Many cities have free mental health services. Check with your government and local churches as well.

    >And I fail to see how PP leads to sexual harassment, when the superseding aspect of any anarcho-capitalist, libertarian or classical liberal is something approximating the maxim I set forward.

    Because they rationalize the act as not being a "cost" as I explained in my blog. It's not that they try to justify sexual harassment, it's that they don't consider it harassment at all.

    >Yes, sexual harassment may occur if, through some strange series of events, the woman is unable to leave her job.

    There is no strange series of events required. This is the standard reality in a capitalist system where the alternative for many people leaving their jobs is starvation or destitution.

    What worked for me was to have a set amount of time to deal with new requests. I'd have an hour in the morning to deal with requests and updates, and after that, every interruption was met with a strict "e-mail it to me."

    Of course, people tried to get around it at first. "It will only take a minute." But I was extremely strict. Then, at the end of the day, I'd take an hour to wade through e-mails, list things out, and prioritize. If someone wasn't specific enough in their e-mail (I'd get a lot of "That thing I told you about yesterday." e-mails) I'd respond with a simple "Need details."

    And, when it came to prioritizing, I would make them do the work for me. "Speak with [boss1] about [request3] re: priority."

    The secret was to be very short, and strict. Don't explain why they need to do something, just tell them what they need to do. Don't apologize for being unavailable, just make it clear that you don't have time to dilly-dally. Don't be a bully, but be like a brick wall. Your time is valuable, so they need to spend more to get it.

    This article is from the standpoint of a programmer and serves to a) tell people to stop using md5 to hash passwords; and b) offer a really sound alternative.

    Normally I would agree with you, but we're talking about well publicized hashing algo's. You knew, didn't you? Most programmers probably haven't heard of pbkdf, though... However, ITNewb still needs that material and at some point (based on how itnewb works) another author will step up and provide a breakdown of hashing, the algo's available and the pro's and con's of those algo's that this article can link to.

    As a general rule, any remotely attractive woman gets tons of messages on personals sites (especially when messaging is free), so they'll usually only respond to the ones that are fairly unique and pique their interest in some way, and they tend to have several things that put you instantly in the 'don't/stop replying' pile. So if you never got replies, you should look into how you were writing those messages and see if:

    * You tried to get/give outside contact information too early (seen as desperation/only wanting sex)

    * Your messages look like any asshole could have written them and/or have been written for any chick on the site "hey baby your hot and you like movies that's awesome wanna go out?" (because many other people have done exactly this, even if you didn't)

    * In an effort to show vulnerability and seem like an honest regular guy and not an asshole, you show too much vulnerability or are too open and honest too soon (women crave the confidence more than the honesty they claim to want it seems)

    * The message is long (especially if you list how close you two match by listing everything she likes that you like too and try to show proof of your interest for each). Don't make it so short it's not personalized, but the longer the message you send, the less likely you'll get a reply. I obviously have trouble with this, especially after the first reply of theirs, because I want to respond to every thought they have and basically do a brain dump of my own in response (like this reply :P).

    * Show you have a sense of humor, somehow. Don't overdo it though.

    * Don't bother replying to girls who have profiles are basically just: "I don't know what to write here. I hate writing these things. But my friend found someone so I maybe I can too! I like to watch movies and have fun! LOL!" (for one, how can you write something personalized for this? but two, this girl obviously has no idea what she wants, but whatever it is, it's probably not you).

    I'm a fat nerd, and yet I've dated several people through OkCupid, and quite a few more women, or even most if you target who you message, will at least reply for a message or three. Replies aren't really that hard to get on there once you understand how it works.

    Of course its a valid point, and it means you're nothing but a troll.

    "Ignorant" because as a non-American you (self-admittedly) don't know the first thing about the situation here concerning health-care, insurance, what government or charity assistance is or is not available, under what conditions or to whom -- ergo "ignorant".

    "BS" because despite the fact that you are completely ignorant, you make presentations that you DO know -- ergo you are a BS'er.

    Add them all together and we have an "ignorant, BS'ing troll" -- which sums up your entire "contribution" to this and any other similar thread.

    But hey, have fun with that.

    "My Trustees and I have set up the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science – RDFRS, or RDF. It is actually two sister foundations of the same name, one legally constituted in Britain and the other legally incorporated in the United States. It has an American trustee based in America (Karen Owens), an American trustee based in Britain (Claire Enders) and a British trustee based in Britain (me). The idea of having two linked charities, with the same aims and trustees, is that donors on either side of the Atlantic can give money to charities on the other side, either RDF itself, or other charities with similar aims, that the donor can specify. RDF will, therefore provide a service to all secular and freethinking charities."

    2\. Education. Within the limits imposed by the charity laws of the respective countries, we would seek to support rational and scientific education at all ages, and to oppose the subversion of scientific education, for example by the well-financed efforts to teach creationism in science classes. Depending on how much money we raise, we would hope to subsidize the publication of books, pamphlets, DVDs and other educational materials.

    11\. Conferences. RDF may from time to time organize conferences on scientific or rationalistic matters, or may donate money to assist other organizations with similar aims with their conferences.
