a "surprising organic brew" containing "volatile gases, water vapour, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, as well as organic materials"

I think Enceladus is full of shit.

The Finnish language

is incredibly difficult to comprend grammarwise if your native tounge is of Latin/German origin. Like Swedish and German, it is an extremely descriptive language; it creates new words as they are needed. For instance:

In Swedish: Kernel -> Kärna. Linux kernel is therefore 'Linuxkärna'. A brand new word, unlike English where the two words are kept separate.

On top of that, and this is the really difficult bit, new words appear depending on what you are doing to the Linux kernel and who's doing it; one word for someone compiling the kernel, another word for debugging the kernel, robbing the kernel, eating the kernel ..

Swedish is easier.

An explorer from a distant world

might, many eons from now, discover signs of a previous civilization on this planet, gone extinct by a huge meteor blast, and conclude that the dumbasses spent their resources on building expensive weaponry aimed at each rather than focusing on getting off their rock and into space. - "What a stupid excuse for intelligent life! Serves them right."

Re: Good riddance?

> Surely the Holy book of K&R should still be revered? - even if you do use C++

Indeed. That is the old testament though. When I first joined the order of the Jedi, Bjarne Stroustrup made me place my hand in The C++ Language, by himself, and swear that I would delete everything created with new, as free releases the mallocs of old.

Good riddance?

In most countries in the civilized world discriminating against religion would incur law suits and recompense. Fuck that! I work for a medium sized software company. What we do requires a certain level of intelligence. A person showing up at a job interview and stating that he believes that a book written quite some time ago is the words of God, simply does not qualify as intelligent. Therefor he is unhireable. He should seek happiness and fulfillment elswhere.

Am I right or am I right?
