    Oh Mormans.

    My first interaction with them was a girl in my elementary school (this was 1st grade, so we were about 6ish) who wouldn't participate in singing Halloween songs in music class. I asked her why, and she responded that it was the Devil's holiday. From a very young age I have realized Mormans to be batshit insane.

    Rap pioneer KRS-One has bigger plans for Hip-Hop as he's announced that he will soon release The Gospel of Hip Hop: The First Instrument, a 600-page book that examines the spirituality of the culture.

    The Boogie Down Production’s “Teacha” said his new spiritual book will help form a new Hip-Hop religion on earth.

    Seriously J not only are you a monumentally umpleasant person when you start uttering the nonsense that passes for philosophy in your mind (shame on whatever institution you graduated in, and shame on your tutors for creating such a monster), but your sense of humor, such as it is, is awful.

    Also, _J_, this should not be suprising. The level of cognitive dissonance involved in getting around some kind of Bigamy in the Aferlife clause is quite trivial as far as these things go.

    Consider the fact that in the Gospels Jesus speaks more clearly (no parables, direct commandments) and more forcefully on the subject of Divorce than just about any other. Dude was absolutely against divorce for any reason. St. Paul even took him to task a bit in his letters for being too strict.

    So we have a subject on which The Man himself is recorded in multiple gospels in a clear and completely unambigious way (no allegory, no metaphores, no parables) saying DO NOT GET DIVORCED MOTHERFUCKERS. And yet millions of self-identifying Christians have absolutely no trouble in working around that.

    Yeah, that’s fine.

    I’d just say it’s unfair to judge the software based on your attempts to do something it’s specifically not meant to do. :P

    No, it's not the operating system's fault. I think Apple should be more receptive towards this sort of thing, though. They could release a more expensive "developer's" version that wasn't so restrictive. I mean if Windows can boot up and install on all different kinds of hardware then Apple should be able to figure it out too, but they don't want to lose hardware sales.

    It's not about figuring it out. 3rd parties write drivers for Microsoft, so it's not like Microsoft figures this shit out either.

    OS X won't boot on most PCs because of a combination of

    a) No drivers for particular bits of hardware.

    and

    b) No support for legacy BIOS-based mobos. Which honestly is healthy call considering they don't manufacture computers that use a BIOS and BIOSes are way past their best-before date

    I used to live like 2 miles from a Jehovah's Witnesses meeting hall

    They would come to my lower-middle class neighborhood to talk to people

    They skipped my one neighbor altogether and I would just stand near an open window and sing happy birthday really loudly from out of sight and yeah I did not like them (this was partly because the ones who always came down my street were assholes)
