Will this nonsense ever cease?  I can't even begin to imagine the amount of hate that fills their every-day existence.  Are these people actually happy to be alive, or has their hate of others consumed them beyond despair?

In a move that will surprise no one, the Mississippi legislature passed their license to discriminate bill.  And the gov signed it.

Senate Bill 2681, the Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act, would allow businesses and individuals to deny services to anyone, if serving that person or organization would "substantially burden" the individual's "religious exercise." It also adds the words "In God We Trust" to the official state seal.

I sent the link to a friend who used to be a Russian translator ...for the US Army, but he wrote back that can't really hear/understand what she's saying.  He did say it's highly probable that it's a hoax.

He is also taking George Takei's high road, and not gloating over Falconsbane's death.

That video, of outtakes of a Russian newsreader being unable to keep a straight face while supposedly reporting on the death of Fred Phelps, seems like a hoax -- but it makes for a funny piece of entertainment!

Cat, I just bookmarked that site.  Thank you SO much for finding that!  I love this, and wish it could happen in my lifetime:

"What I want to create is software that is as easy to use as the CAT was but with the power of today's broad range of applications. I know how to do it, I just haven't found a company where I can build it."  Jef Raskin

Spider didn't mention it by name, but Jef Raskin is a very good friend of his, actually something of a hero, so they probably did discuss it.  He did mention that it was a step or two past the time when they were still called "word processors."  (That's all a professional writer would have been interested in back then.)  Yeah, I don't see a 10-key pad anywhere on that keyboard.

I like the name, too.  Meeeyow! 

I still have that Macbook Leopard laptop that I don't know how to use (and my lack of learning skills caused the bust-up of a good friendship.  Or at least I thought it was a friendship.)

sk8eycat, was that computer with "instant boot-up", and where you turn it on and just type, the Canon Cat? (Appropriate that we're bringing it up! :-) I found an intriguing set of help screens, and some thoughts from designer Jef Raskin about what computers and user interfaces could be.

Comment by sk8eycat on March 26, 2014 at 11:52pm

Okay, Spider Robinson (a writer that I love dearly) wrote an article for the Toronto Globe & Mail a while back about a computer that was made by Canon that had instant boot-up.  You turned on the power and went to work.  Period..  No waiting for the desktop to rebuild itself, or any of that nonsense.

Then Canon was bought by a larger company, and the computer was discontinued immediately.

I also remember 1930's cars, we had one all during WW2, and for several years after (my toddler thru at least 2nd grade years).  Dad absolutely loved that car....I remember it had a starter that you had to step on to the right of the gas pedal...I think.

OK as I am from that era before time began, The early 30s cars were quite a challenge but they have now managed to come into their own. Computers are still in the Model T era.  So far computers have not got up to the point of needing a starting handle but they are near.  I can remember the days when my car, when meeting a steep hill you had to turn around and go up backwards because first gear was not low enough to do the job.  You not only had to have a spare tyre but also a repair kit with patches and glue and tyre irons because you were fortunate to cover more than 30 miles without a puncture. 

I don't expect to live long enough for computers to get up to the age equivalent to the starting handle phase.  By, say 2060, they may reach the stage where we can turn on that reliable computer box and it will do just as we expected.  Rest assured by that time something else will have come on the scene to drive humankind huts.  Cars will only exist in museums and they will have presentations about the toxic fluid that made them go.  By that time the law may allow mixed marriage of men and women even though some say it will cause unrest among traditional marriage of males to males or females to females, oh well, life goes on.
