Re: Israelian raid on Gaza-bound aid ship kills 10+ people

It was very hostile, and not very understanding to other viewpoints. I know, being in the center of the issue, its a lot more personal to you - but I've talked to other Israeli's (sorry for the typo, like writing "improbably" instead of "improbably " "Improbably" (godd...

Re: Israelian raid on Gaza-bound aid ship kills 10+ people

Well, I'm pretty sure that sort of attitude is exactly pretty much the attitude that makes people dislike you, you know. The fact is, the world knows there are bad people. Israel is a grown-up country and the people of Israel need to learn to start taking some responsibility. The comic is slightly ...

Re: Israelian raid on Gaza-bound aid ship kills 10+ people

This is a great summary of what's happening in Israel. Link It's in comic form, but it's true. Gaza has been sending hundreds of rockets every month to Israel (aimed specifically at civilians), and Israel doesn't do anything about it for months at a time! Can you even imagine the sort of public upro...

Re: Striving for Mediocrity

Who would you imagine have more contact and more respect in the eyes of a teacher? The student who writes down everything, asks tons of questions during class, and aces everything, or the one who sleeps in class, doesn't write down anything at all in class, almost fails most classes and pays no rea...

Re: Striving for Mediocrity

You just described one of the major problems of the school system in perfect detail. This is just it. The school system aims for mediocrity, because that's what standardized tests are all about. It still is weird to me that one day I talked to the girl who always gets 90+ on every test, and it was a...

Re: Smart ways to solve an equation in C++

For pretty much all number theory, you want to avoid floats like the plague... stick to integer types. What about decimal, e.g. C#'s implementation of it? C#'s decimal is 128 bits, which means it's twice as accurate compared to double (which has 64 bits), you can still get rounding errors, but it's...

Re: Malcom Reynolds vs Han solo

Mal vs Han is irrelevant.
I want to see Luke vs River.
There's that comic about "River Tam beats up EVERYONE", right?
Well, this would be similar, but ten times better.
