What is the best way to improve the average IQ of the human race ? {Don't tell me I have to kill myself. I have heard that one several times already. It's a stale old joke now}. I think the source of all conflict and misery on earth is caused by the 'dumbass factor'. So if we can find a way to neutralise all dumbasses (by making them more intelligent) we may have solved all of mankind's problems. Any idea's anyone?

The IT industry is to blame for making programming tasks easy enough for the end user to tackle. Don't you wish the good old machine code and assembler days were here again ?

Do it now before you are too old to make the switch. The current difficulty in getting a job is due to the saturated market. New industry trends will also have a role in shrinking the IT job market further. One of the trends that may play a major role in the coming years is the growing number of self sufficient end users.
I can cite my customers as an example. Most of them are industrial engineers, MBA types , marketing analysts and various other kinds of fauna called "industry experts". They are capable of setting up a data source (Oracle or SQL server) and dishing out data (to those who consume the data they produce) through ASP or JSP (That's how I get so much spare time on my hands ) . Dozens of them can code decent C++ and Java. When you allow these kind of life forms to multiply it makes the corporate developer redundant.
That means the middle ground is vanishing. So you need to make a choice if you want to go that way and become an end user (after you get your MBA , CIMA, DIMA, LLM, MD, FRCS & MRCP of course) or go the other way and enter what is known as hard core programming. What is hard core programming? Hard core programming is doing what an end user cannot do .

And those who still think that Gandhi's ways were useless, I ask you one question. Would it have been better if Gandhi did what Yassar Arafat is doing? or would it be better if Arafat followed Gandhi's path of ego-less, non-violence, non-cooperation, education and self-reliance?

I agree with that. While I do not have sufficient data to form an opinion on the merits of the greivances held by the Palestinians and other allied groups against the United States and her allies, I think it would have helped their cause tremendously if they had adopted a non-violent approach. Humane people can be moved by non-violence. To deny this, is to deny that America is a humane nation.

I presume you are referring to people like this.,6903,866254,00.html
I think you are making a mistake about their perspective. They are not planning to use nonviolence as a weapon against Saddam. They are planning to use nonviolence as a weapon against the government of the United States.

The effect he hopes to achieve is to shame the (percieved) tyrant and make him see the error of his ways.
There are three actors in this process. The victim of nonviolence, the benficiary of nonviolence and the perpetrator of nonviolence.
The action you are recommending is to be performed by the beneficiary of nonviolence against the perpetrator. The victim of nonviolence has to remain unmoved by the perpetrator's sacrifice if he wishes to take an aggressive stance against the perpetrator.
You got it more or less right. You just got the roles mixed up . Unless if you are an Iraqi

I have no opinion in this matter. My interest in this, is purely academic. But then, you probably subscribe to the view "You are either with us or against us".
P.S. I remember seeing the phrase "you are either with me or against me" used before. It was in Mario Puzo's novel "The Godfather".

In English this "more concrete" is space. Time is often understood as a container, in which events happen, or a place "at" which they happen.

A year is a container. It contains a collection of months and days, hence "in 1999". 29 January 2003 is a single object of it's type (day) hence "on 29 th January". Similar rules apply to hours, minutes etc.

Frankly, I am tired of these anonymous postings. Should we force people to register and then, after they failed to take responsibility for their action, disable their accounts? They can register another account of course, but this will be another, hopefully better account.

I dont think that will work. However I will do my bit to clear the confusion. I herebey confess to using the following accounts. Jason Menard , Ravish Kumar, Thinku Mama , Slob Hercombe, Tintin Herge, Nanhesru Ningyakyak, Pavam Payyan , Jim Yingst, Balaji Logarithmnathan, Don Liu, Stevie Kaligis etc etc. In short there is only two of us here. One of them is is me. The others are all Mapraputa Isayeva.

By the way, the poster's IP address points to the Netherlands, for those keeping score on who is anti-American.

I wouldnt trust these IP addresses too much.

Check out this article..How much americans love peace and are non-racist.

I find your comments equally obnoxious. If Bapu was here now he would be amused by "Maxim�s Kick-Ass Workout". Your comments would really put him to the test. I will wager a months wages that if you said something like this in his presence he would probably forget himself and bean you with his walking stick

Originally posted by Jason Menard:
I read the whole message, and posted it. So his prejudices are our fault? Such a statement is similar to saying "I liked black people until I actually met one".

So you think I have never seen a live American before ? . Reports of Laloo sighting a live American are given as much credibility as UFO sightings in the Mexican desert. Why do you think this is an impossibility ?
As for your theories about Indians being US haters. What is the motivation for this alleged hatred ? Oh! yes, I remember envy. So what kind of envy is it ? Is it some kind of national envy based on GDP , per capita income etc ? If so, countries like Japan , Luxembourg , Denmark , Singapore are also possible candidates for hatred.

Originally posted by Jason Menard:
Yes, envy and an inferiority complex can have that effect sometimes.

This seems to imply personal envy. I don't know about the others, for me, a bigger bank balance is not sufficient grounds for hatred. If that were the case, why should you give me a bigger inferiority complex than Masayashi Son (Japan), Thomas Hoffa (Germany) or the Sultan of Brunei ? They have more money in the bank than you do Jason.

My attitide towards the US isn't significantly different from my attitude to most other countries of the world. Korea (both north and south) is a notable exception. Their duck rights record is appalling.

You mentioned the use of multiple identities. When the message content makes no conscious effort to mask the real identity of the poster, it can hardly be called wearing of disguises. That is mostly done for comic effect (I know most people dont find it funny, but it amuses me, that is a good enough reason). As for the "history polishing", I was probably reacting to something, nevertheless in hindsight those comments seem insensitive at best , hence they have been purged.

You seem to have some weird ideas about the lifestyle of those who live outiside the US. This gives me an idea for a new thread . Coming soon : The story of Mowgli Prasad Yadav , Baloo Yoginathan , Colonel R.K. Haathi and miscellaneous fauna

Jason, Jason , Jason,
Where is all that hate coming from ? If I really enjoyed baiting people , I would go to someplace like this
and enquire about the prospects of mongrelising the nation .
But what good will it do ? These people are beyond redemption.
Pardon me for posting this here, but let me quote from something posted by someone called 'Breaker of White Chains'

Hitler was the greatest man in History. His legacy lives on through the awake Aryans who will rise again to give hell to the evil anti-aryans who steal their pride.

The "they are against us" concept is what really sustains them. I wouldnt use that as a staple diet Jason. If you dont watch it you will soon end up being like them.
P.S. In hindsight some of the things I said in the old post seem to be in bad taste. Hence they have been deleted. Map once referred to this kind of thing as "polishing history"

Yourself and the others have made your attitudes towards us clear in this thread and in previous threads, so quite frankly I'm not seeing anything new or unexpected.

If my memory serves me right, you started all this. The only difference now is that you are on the defensive most of time (remember your attempt to share the patent on ones and zeroes with the Indians? ) . Most of these people are not anti American. They are just expressing a political opinion. If some Indian criticises Hugo Chavez it should not be construed as an anti Venezuelan feeling among Indians in general. As Donne said "No man is an island, entire of itself. Any man's death diminishes me, Because I am involved in mankind" people tend to have opinions on political developments that do not affect them directly. Perhaps what you see here as anti American feelings is merely an anti Jason Menard , anti Thomas Paul thing. Many of the people who post messages here which you misinterpret as anti American have a lot of American friends. Some of them are related to Americans. Or they could be Americans posting with Indian sounding names (with the sole intention of annoying you) . If the rest of you don't consider it presumptuous I shall speak on behalf of all the Indians here. We are not interested in bashing the US our only interest is the suppression of the Jason Menards and the Thomas Pauls. What America needs is fewer and better Jason Menards. I wish you a Merry Christmas Jason and hope we will hear less from you in the coming year.
