Lets be honest there are a few other parts of that quote wasn't true for a very long time.

TheITGuy  ·  3226 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Anyone like using the rowing machine?

"I haven't run in about a month and I'm signed up to run a four mile thing tomorrow night. should be interesting."

Sounds like me I did a 15k once, my training max was about 3 miles. I told myself 15k is basically running 3 miles 3 times easy... Then I would go to the local bar for post workout beer.

Makes me wonder if a show like Married with Children would survive with today's SJW environment. I also hear many comedians are avoiding performing at colleges because kids today can't take a joke.

I'm sorry... On the plus side you're smarter than 45% of the population.

TheITGuy  ·  3232 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski, where do you want to live?

I just want to live in a cabin on a mountain. The simple life for me; I lived in D.C., & L.A. I can honestly say the city life is overrate simply because of the cost of living.

It's great I love the layout, did you design it yourself or use a template? If you used a template can you share the source? I'm helping a friend put together a website for his non-profit, I think this would be a nice layout for his charity.

Wow this is great! Awhile back I was going to put together something similar to this but life happen. Your site elegant its present with such beauty. Thank you for sharing.

I have no idea what I just saw...

TheITGuy  ·  3235 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: How Climate Scientists Feel About Climate Change Deniers .

The politician, "The climate is changing' but we don't know who's to Blame..." Lets just keep kicking this policy down the road, and let the next generation deal with it. It's mind-blowing how so many people so arrogant can become so powerful...

TheITGuy  ·  3237 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Bernie Sanders Raised $1.5 Million in 24 Hours, More Than Any Republican

Socialist countries today: Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Canada, China, New Zealand, and Belgium all doing well for themselves. But on the other hand most of the social-democratic Nordic nations have the highest wealth inequality in Europe as the top 10% owns 65-69% of the nations' wealth.

Found this: http://www.businessinsider.com/why-socialist-scandinavia-has-some-of-the-highest-inequality-in-europe-2014-10

"Strong social security programs, good public pensions, free higher education or generous student loans, unemployment and health insurance can greatly reduce the need for personal financial assets. Public housing programs can do the same for real assets. This is one explanation for the high level of wealth inequality we identify in Denmark, Norway and Sweden: the top groups continue to accumulate for business and investment purposes, while the middle and lower classes have no pressing need for personal saving."

Its nice to see with a well run government you don't have to focus all your energy on creating wealth, you can actual enjoy your life and its meaning.

I feel this is common for the 60+ crowd, I remember my mom called me excited that AOL was giving her 4 months free. Thankfully, she took it well when I broke the bad news to her when I had to explain to her what a web browser was.

TheITGuy  ·  3237 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A World Without Work

Sadly, most of our representatives just don't understand the power of technology and the dramatic change it can bring to our landscape. Increasing wages will only push the need for corporations to invest more into artificial intelligence. The roll out for A.I. will be slow, maybe even too slow to raise any red flags. I worry not for me, but for my daughter generation. There future will be the one effected my this change in the workforce landscape. I better start teaching her a program language now to prepare her for the difficult future.

TheITGuy  ·  3238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What album has had the most influence in your life?

These would be my choice too. I could listen to these albums anytime anywhere.

Sad thing is with most of today's media being digtal I can't really think of a newer album I completely listened to.

Thank you.

TheITGuy  ·  3238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Dear America, get your head out of your ass about Bernie Sanders

Article is gone... Subject should read: Dear Media, get your head out of Hillary and Jeb's ass.

For every article I see about Bernie, I see 4-5 about Hillary. The republican are all just racing for second place at this point. I'm not sure the republican will win a presidential election for awhile. W really hurt the overall population idea of what a republican is.

TheITGuy  ·  3238 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What upcoming video games are you looking forward to?

The new Rainbow Six game, probably my favorite franchise of all time. I just love how you can only take 2-3 shots Before dying. The game makes you play it safe, hugging the walls,and perking around corners; it just adds that extra element of strategy I'm looking for in a shooting game.

I dislike the volume of it's upvotes and downvotes system. The majority of Reddit is very liberal young people and people upvote things that confirm their biases while downvoting anything they disagree with so you're left with only one point of view.

Reddit showed me a lot of interesting things, but I feel most of my time is wasted on it. I'm glad to be free from it now, I would rather be part of smaller quality networks. Where my comments or input may be seen by more than a few eyes before downvoted or lost into the abyss.
