#2829579 Five cities you recommend when foreigners to visit the U.S.

Posted by Inimicus on 25 June 2014 - 05:19 AM

I'm pretty surprised to not see New Orleans anywhere in these responses.

 

All NFCS hate aside its a pretty fuging awesome city with a flare and flavor unlike anywhere else Ive ever been.




#2819994 Would you want this much Science and Technology in Football?

Posted by Inimicus on 14 June 2014 - 11:01 PM

Can you give me a reason why it should stay in the human realm? I kinda want to know for a fact if he crossed the goal line on 4th and goal. 

 

Because I can point out countless examples of where software made a system more accurate and at the same time worse.

 

 

 

The history of this great game is written in the gray spaces between one fans interpretations of a play and the opposing fans interpretation of the same course of events.

 

Adding the idea of a ball that can be tracked to the millimeter adds nothing to the game.  In point of fact it removes the human element and part of what makes this game so much fun to watch,

 

With a chip in the ball would the Music City Miracle be such a wonderful point of discussion?

As a professional technologist (two plus decades in IT)...

 

 

Hell fuging No!

 

 

 

Tech is not the answer. 

 

The game needs to remain in the "human realm" and not be reduced to a series of digital calculations.




#2807970 In flight movies; How censored?

Posted by Inimicus on 03 June 2014 - 05:19 PM

Ive flown on Delta internationally a few times and my experience was that the movies were free and they were completely uncensored.

 

On one flight I got pretty embarrassed watching Get Him to the Greek because of the little old lady sitting beside me.

#2794344 Has anyone else been having a terrible year?

Posted by Inimicus on 20 May 2014 - 02:47 PM

In 2009 I had 7 family members get their clocks punched.

 

And not a bunch of distant once a year relatives but people I saw 2,3,5 times a month.  People who I told the that I loved them on a regular basis.

 

 

After 2009 no year is a bad year...




#2787820 Would The US Constitution be signed today?

Posted by Inimicus on 15 May 2014 - 06:43 AM

No

 

Or society (not just our elected officials) is far to polarized to even agree on the fact that they needed to form a country.




#2754324 The Purpose for Going to College

Posted by Inimicus on 28 April 2014 - 12:53 PM

I have had more visibility to the business and finance fields....where good students with good grades have been able to pretty easily find jobs.  Did not realize the engineering field was getting hit hard like that.

 

But, these are extreme economic times...an anomily.  To use them as a basis for saying that getting a college eduation is not worth it is still a ridiculous statement.  We are in a time where technological advancements are making menial and manual labor almost obsolete.  It is only going to get worse for those who do not get training and an education.

 

I hear ya dude.  And a few years ago I was right there with you.

 

But I think that opinion assumes that the education is going to be of a certain quality and Im not sure that quality exists at the Bachelors level.

 

Take my experience for example.  As I stated earlier Ive interviewed 3 or 4 dozen people over the last couple of years for programmers jobs.  Most with relevant degrees and some with masters or higher.  They go on and on about polymorphism and interface inheritance and Alan Turing and user interface design.  They know all about Chain of Responsibility and Facade Patterns and probably wrote a paper or two on the Agile Method and know the difference in Scrum and RUP.

 

 

But they troubleshoot problems like a superstitious 4th grader.  Conflating unrelated events and items into this solution that sounds like "If I wear a red shirt and pass more than 5 Cadillacs on my morning commute then I need to build my solution before 9 or it will corrupt the memory of whichever web server I'm remoted in to.  BUT only if I had a dish with cheese in it last night."

 

And these are not imbeciles from the local Community College, these are top 20% students from NCSU, Ga Tech, And Va Tech among others.  They are taught the terms but not how to think almost like high school.

 

There absolutely is a place and a need for higher education, but it isn't for everyone and its not even necessary for success in many fields.

#2729701 Jukebox go-to song

Posted by Inimicus on 07 April 2014 - 07:57 AM

Jukeboxes bring out the asshole in me.  I tend to play the most obscure and inappropriate things I can find in the jukebox.

 

If I can find some Isis Ill pay to play an entire album.  Its all post/sludge-metal, experimental, 15 minute compositions that can really kill the mood in a bar.

But seriously, gtfo of the left lane if there are cars on your bumper.


You can pretty clearly see there are vehicles in the left lane that the driver is passing. Just not fast enough for the idiot in the truck. And before there is a safe distance in front of the vehicles they passed dickhead has shoved his truck into that space.


#2718355 unions coming to college ball

Posted by Inimicus on 27 March 2014 - 12:39 PM

You're joking, right?

 

Star athletes can get free room and board in a dorm, free meals, the best training facility to use for free, a free education, free trips all over the country, free publicity, free access to the team doctor, a free rise in popularity on campus, etc. Just what the hell do they need any money for? Beer? Condoms? If you mean the athletes on the golf team, the swim team, the track stars, etc. then yes ... they don't get the same swag. Which is why paying them all can't work, because they'll want just as much as a star basketball player gets.

 

What about a genius who gets a free ride in the physics department? What if his work gives the school grants and attracts other genius students to the school which can give them more money. It can bring it better professors if the school gets a rep as the place to learn. Those kids study their ASS off. Should they get some money?

 

They already do get money.

 

 

Colleges and Universities regularly give out stipends to their "5 star" students to help with living expenses.

 

From Stanford's web site:

http://studentaffair...rviews-stipends

 

Stipends are funds given to students who meet strict eligibility requirements. Stipends are not loans. Stipends are approved and issued by academic departments and/or financial aid offices.

  • Stipends may go directly to the student or be applied to pay certain educational expenses on the University bill.
  • Stipends are only processed to student accounts. Exceptions are made for Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS Loans).
  • Stipends are available on or after the first day of classes for students who are enrolled.

For eligibility requirements, students should contact their academic department advisor or Financial Aid Office.
