Random Thoughts: Time and Computers

Just because another religion has a holiday near Christmas doesn’t mean it’s as culturally significant as Christmas.

I know a way to end the controversy: Let’s agree to only torture terrorists.

Exactly how hard do you have to punch someone to make his head explode?

This British guy going on about how Americans shouldn’t have guns seems like one of those Best of the Web “News from 1775″ things.

Let’s just go over the cliff; it could be fun. Cliff! Cliff!

If you’re for banning semi-automatic guns, then you’re for a complete ban on guns or have no idea what a semi-automatic is.

The most logical order is year, month, day, b/c when written as a single number (e.g. 20121221), as a computer will automatically sort those dates in order. That will still be true even if the year eventually goes to five digits.

I’m a programmer. These things are very important to me.

BTW, if we could get rid of daylights saving and timezones and all go by Greenwich Mean Time, that would be awesome.

If I owned a gun store, I’d have a sign over the main display saying, “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.”

I’d also heavily charge anyone who burnt down my door.

I saw some Mayans walking about today and they looked unconcerned.

You have an option of armed teachers and unarmed teachers. You don’t have the option of unarmed murders versus armed murderers.

Seeing my scores compared to others online is already far too social from how I like my video game experience.

Lesson learned for when we need to rebuild a new government: Give the government an extremely strict budget and rethink the idea of taxes.

In a just world, Nancy Pelosi would be thrown in prison for treason and her assets confiscated and redistributed to taxpayers.

It is not a just world.

If you want to save lives, rather than making it harder to get an assault weapons should you be making it harder to get a driver’s license?

Thought of a great name for a handgun marketed to women: Rape Whistle. Comes with a “I Just Killed a Rapist” whistle.

    Then I’d be eating breakfast at noon. That’s crazy – who wants to wait until noon for breakfast?

    I’ve been saying this for years. Not because I want to save lives, but because I hate *(&@^#$ing bad drivers! Seriously, who decides to give these morons licenses?

    Make that part of your presidential platform, you will get all the programmer’s votes including the ones who program the voting machines = landslide.

    Okay, the world is still here – but I have to admit I’m still hoping for a giant meteor to hit D.C. some time today. Hey, a guy can hope.

    I thought a semi-automatic was a truck transmission?

    Why do programmers confuse Halloween and Christmas? Because OCT 31 = DEC 25. I get lots of ladies with that joke.

    What’s that sound? * me, starting a slow clap *

    I don’t know. This requires more research. Send Paul Krugman and Chris Matthews over to my house and I’ll figure it out.

    As for your comment about writing dates as yyyymmdd so you can still sort them when the year goes to five digits: that is incorrect, at least in Java and C#.

    I was told the government made a profit loaning money to AIG. perhaps instead of levying taxes they could just loan money to banks.

    Since we’re dealing in profundities…

    Great chefs say, ‘you eat with your eyes.’ If true, the blind must be starving.
