  • Re: bad casting choice

    [quote user="arh"][quote user="morbiuswilters"]Sadly, we will be seeing WTFs like this into the 2060s because C will never just die already.[/quote] This, so very very much. With all the security issues, memory leaks etc you would think by now most modern software would be written using managed code or something that makes ...

  • Re: Am I TRWTF?

    [quote user="slavdude"]I'll be the first to admit that I suck at asking for help, but one would think that the higher-ups would begin to notice that the project schedule was slipping.[/quote] The above sentence is worrying. To me, it sounds like the situation escalated out of control, you didn't inform the relevant people, like ...

  • Re: Government Shutdown

    [quote user="boomzilla"]Especially making it legal for a doctor to murder a patient.[/quote]It's legal for your governments (both state and federal) to murder inmates, although they use a different phrase for that. So the idea that one person can legally kill another person, under specific circumstances, is not at all far-fetched. ...

  • Re: Government Shutdown

    [quote user="boomzilla"]I'm not sure of a significant political party in other parts of the world that is even as tepidly pro-freedom as the Republican party (which is only most, but not all of the American Right).[/quote]The freedom as a same-sex couple to get married? The freedom to have your life ended in a dignified manner by a ...

    Quoting myself... always a bad sign... [quote user="Severity One"]On the other hand, such a deadlock as the USA experiences is practically impossible.

  • Re: Government Shutdown

    [quote user="El_Heffe"]There are things about other countires that I find equally baffling and absurd. Like "Belgium didn't have a government for months". WTF? You elected people, therefore you have a government. If they leave office for some reason, you replace them. To "not have a government" makes no sense to ...
