Social Media’s Looks Inside Outlanders’ Shot At Independence?

September 18th, 2014

The Jacobites wanted to unseat George II of the Hanover family to replace with Bonnie Prince Charles of the Stuart Family -which if successful would have been the first step in disengaging from the existing British Crown!

Social Media’s Looks Inside Outlanders’ Shot At Independence?

September 18th, 2014

The Jacobites weren't fighting to disengage themselves from the British crown. The Rebellion wasn't fought for "freedom" or "independence" from Britain AT ALL. It was fought simply to exchange Charlie for Geordie--the Stuart dynasty for the Hanoverian dynasty. That's all.

Undercover Colors Nail Polish: Why Detecting Date Rape Drugs Isn't That Easy

September 1st, 2014

Am I missing something?
How is this any different from arguing that you shouldn't have to lock your doors because thieves should know better?

Yes. They should know better. Yes, the blame for getting robbed lies exclusively with the person who took my stuff.
Yes, I am going to lock my door, because I don't want to make a statement about how it's on thieves not to steal from me, or argue in a court about how it was the thieves fault that he stole from me (an argument that puzzlingly will not be an open and close case regardless of if I had my door unlocked).

Yes, men should be taught from a young age that no means no. That you shouldn't coerce someone with drugs or the threat of violence to have sex with you, or force them to have sex with you.
But to think one shouldn't take any precautions because the world shouldn't be a bad place doesn't mean you're taking a stand. It means you're deliberately ignoring the dangers that women face because there are some guys out there who aren't nice and don't give a shit.
Crikey. Education and prevention. Until we live in an idyllic society, we need both. Not one over the other.

'Internet of Everything' Now Hiring

August 29th, 2014

I have the same concern - the jobs are going to be there, but it seems that our legacy educational system is stuck in the previous century. This is going to take some serious reform, and some teachers and professors with different skills.
