It's easy to understand. A laptop is a crippled tablet. No touchscreen, you control a pointer indirectly through a track pad instead. Not portable, you can't hold it like a book. Keyboard stupidly attached to the screen by a hinge, meaning you can only set it down on a desk or on your lap. A tablet is much more versatile than a laptop. The laptop is an awful design and will disappear completely within the next few years.
I watched the one this thread is about, one where the chick got to lez it up with a bunch of chicks and the guy got sucked off by a chick who was getting fucked by another guy, and one with an Asian couple where the chick freaked out when the guy touched another woman and locked herself in her room and cried. I want to see one where the guy fucks a chick while his wife/girlfriend has to sit at the side and watch.
You're basically rejecting any part of religion that could be of value (the community, scholarship, lineage, etc) and just keeping around basest, most shoddily interpreted beliefs. Fundies are "spiritual but not religious" types who fell into literal interpretations of their holy books because they rejected the institutional and interpretive framework that had been built around them.
Susan Lamey, of State College, looked on, visibly upset. She said Paterno did not deserve to be the scapegoat of the Sandusky scandal. "It's just another crime being committed," Lamey said of the statue's removal.
The other view, more common amongst long-time Googlers, is that Mayer is a publicity-craving, lucky early Googler, whose public persona outstripped her actual authority and power at the company, where she was once a rising star--thanks to a bullying managerial style--but had become marginalized over the past couple of years.
Yesterday we spoke at length on the phone with a former Google executive who worked with Mayer and says she and others like her have this view.
She told us twice: "This is a great day for Google, and a nail in the coffin for Yahoo."
This source described an executive who "will work harder than anyone" and "is smarter than 99 percent of the people," but "can't scale herself" and "doesn't understand managing any other way than intimidation or humiliation."
This source says that when she worked with Mayer at Google, Mayer "was just a nightmare"-someone who had her own publicist, forced underlings to sign customized NDAs, and maintained "a shadow HR staff and a shadow recruiting staff just for her team."
"No one understood why she had the power that she had, except that she will literally work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
"She used to make people line up outside of her office, sit on couches and sign up with office hours with her. Then everybody had to publicly sit outside her office and she would see people in five minute increments. She would make VPs at Google wait for her. It's like you've got to be kidding."
I've posted about this before. I saw a big display on it at a university in London. The students had been slaves for the day and they had photos and the chains in a display cabinet. It looked too ridiculous to be real.
Here's irrefutable proof that Brosnan was the worst:
Here we see him surfing into North Korea. Watch it. This shit is worse than even the most hokey stuff in the old Bond movies, yet it was made in 2002.
Before you give me that "Brosnan was a great Bond but the movies sucked" bullshit, consider... Brosnan was a miscast, campy Bond and the movies were built around the fact that: (a) Brosnan is incapable of acting in action sequences, he can't even run convincingly, that's why there isn't any good action in the Brosnan movies; (b) Brosnan is not suave, but smarmy and looks way too old for the part, that's why in the Brosnan movies Bond comes across as an ageing, bumbling drunk rather than a capable secret agent; (c) Brosnan's acting is incredibly bad and campy and the movies became more and more camp and ridiculous to accommodate his style; and (d) Brosnan has a very dated look and that's why the Brosnan movies look more like spoofs of old James Bond movies rather than movies that were made in the 90s/00s.
In short, Brosnan is, by far, the worst James Bond, EVER.
The obvious outcome of a sexually permissive society is that nobody will be having sex. Right now it's a fad for young women to go out, get drunk and find themselves in near-rape situations with predatory men, but that will pass. The novelty of it will wear off. The next generation won't be able to rationalise it by claiming they're strong and independent and doing what society considers acceptable for men. When sex becomes just another form of entertainment, people will pass it over for easier forms of entertainment, the kind that don't involve dressing up or leaving the house. Masturbation is easier, video games are easier. The next generation will be the last generation of whites.
There's obviously very strong ties between the UK and India. India is basically run by British-educated Indians and Indians are everywhere in the UK. But I think there's also something going on with the UK and US trying to encourage Indian economic growth as a counterweight to China.
