@Darren, thanks.  Religion kills, over and over again.  Churches exist as echo chambers of illogic and ill founded faith.  If you can find me a magical elf, I have a list of projects for him.

Bloody grrr. UNLESS YOU ARE A MAGICAL ELF WISHING DOESN'T WORK!!!! Why are churches allowed to even comment on anything? They want to get involved with science and ethics then do things like this!! Grrr.

A little late.  The "gay soldier" part is about 2/3 through.  Dunlap is so adorable  :-)

Nice work spreading the news Sentient. Turing is on this a great list:

Maybe an urban legend.  Way back when, I did presentations on LGBT people of note in history, and the tragic story of Turing was popular.  

 

I imagine for every Turing there were hundreds of people who underwent similar treatment, whose names will never be known because they are not war heros.  Those are the times that religionists and sanctimonious politicians pine for.

Okay so upon further research apparently the apple part of the story is not 100% confirmable. But I like it.

Did you guys know the last sentence?  

 

16. Alan Turing (1912-54), British scientist, cryptanalyst, logician, mathematician. highly influential in the development of computer science, providing a formalization of the concept of the algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which played a significant role in the creation of the modern computer. He devised a number of techniques for interpreting German ciphers in World War II, and broke the Enigma machine’s code, saving tens of thousands of lives in the process. Turing’s homosexuality resulted in a criminal prosecution in 1952-homosexual acts were illegal in the United Kingdom at the time. He was chemically castrated as an alternative to prison. He is said to have committed suicide by eating cyanide in an apple. In 2009, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown made an official public apology on behalf of the British government for the way in which Turing was mistreated after the war, a left-handed “thank you” for all the good work he had done for his country. The partially bitten apple on Steve Jobs’ computers is a silent tribute to his advances in computer science.

George, you are right.  He's at least as clever as....  I don't know.  If we could  assign him to alphabetize a package of M&Ms, we wouldn't hear from him for a couple of months.

@ Sentient Biped:  Clever isn' the?  His phone "accidentally" rings with the ringtone "Kill That Faggot".  It's a song by the rapper Styles P on an album called Ghost in the Shell.  

His wikipedia page makes no mention of the song - perhaps it's just as well he doesn't have publicity.
