Re: "Why not include critical thinking as well?"
yes, but I mean.

Sorry AC, I was just asking - can I use GIMP? Many of Photoshop's functions _are_ available in GIMP, but not having Photoshop (license/OS nor experience) I was wondering if I can use GIMP instead (?).
The article does not explicitly say so - so can you be more helpful please?
Let's be skeptical, but not cynical. Cynicism is a feedstock of the antivaxers.
So here's to all the efforts of the epistemologists, data modellers and clinicians who are doing their best at this time. Have a beer to keep your spirits up (but not too many just yet).
Er - sorry, I forgot to mention the politicians....
"....hearing stories of younger users hogging the family television with their latest and greatest software creations."
Lovely to hear, but I reduce such problems by running a Pi 4x4 behind both of our TV's (kitchen and lounge) and politely moving aside when live TV is in demand and just quietly carry on doing what I was doing by VNCing into the Pi from my Chromebook.
Super flexible, maintains domestic harmony and leaves my desktop PC quietly gathering dust [quiet as it's mostly 'off' these days].
And, btw, running the /root partition from a USB3 240GB SSD makes it even more able to sideline my PC ;-)
I mentioned my friend's views on vaccines (!) to my daughter who is a research nurse at a prestigious UK hospital and she earnestly told me:
"But the statistics clearly show that people who have been vaccinated are more likely to get Alzheimer's."
"Because they didn't die from Cholera, Diphtheria, Hepatitis. Malaria, Measles, Polio, Rabies, Tuberculosis......."
I have a friend who is bothering himself, and everybody nearby, about the dangers of the 5G role out.
Recently he sent me a link to a company (rfsafe.com) headlining "5G Network Uses Nearly Same Frequency as Weaponized Crowd Control Systems" and pages of stuff showing we are all doomed....
The clue in the article is about the power, not the frequency, surely? After all the water in the tea he was drinking was virtually the same water used by Weaponized Water Canons isn't it.
BTW how's Harry's health these days?

I used to use (and teach) M$ Office until 2008 when I left my college job. I chose never to use any M$, or other closed proprietary product, ever again and haven't.
Later I moved from OpenOffice to LibreOffice seamlessly (at no cost) and things just keep getting better. Whilst I still run LO on a decent PC for heavy stuff (eg editing a 30+ page community magazine), most tasks I can now do on my cheap Chromebook (running LO under Linux Apps for ChromeOS (beta)), or even on my 24/7 Raspberry Pi behind the kitchen telly.
Cheap, flexible and reliable <glances at M$ in the rear-view mirror and smiles.> :-)
I was sober and still seeing double.
A couple of pints and it was all clear again. A nice view of a distant relative.
A few more and the Imperial Death Star was clearly visible.
Thanks Kewl for the tip. BTW I found it easier by saving the image in a new tab [right click]. That way there is no web page to distract.
All good and well done to the boffins who pulled it off!!
Now a few more and it might be animated in full Technicolor...........
Well done Reg. I was surprised by the number of headlines I saw from others such as:
"Hubble and Gaia accurately weigh the Milky Way" [https://www.spacetelescope.org/] reported verbatim by the Guardian, Phys.org et al.
Shirley this should be - as you put it - about Mass. A Massive mistake maybe?
> Falcon 9 is but a mere stepping stone to Elon's mighty Starship,
Final design is already on the drawing board..... here. (image c/o Haynes Publishing)
I won't mention I have just ordered one for my birthday (the manual, not the starship sadly) in case it is construed as a advertising, but I have. My handle might explain.
Just before I go..... I'm _so_ glad I don't use it. But how many of my family, our kids, their kids etc do I have no idea but I am sure that FB will have me well and truly triangulated via address book contacts, family photos etc etc etc
So I'm heading for the hills with a barrel of beer under my arm, a pencil, writing pad, a box of matches and no phone charger. [next post will be by pigeon]
Personal Computer World magazine 1978 (Volume 1, Issue 1) published 'The Elegant Minmon' as a printed Z80 assembly code listing. After two years of soldering, typing it all in and adding a video driver (c/o Wieless World) it all sat in 1k bytes of Eprom.
By 1981 I would have killed for a floppy disk drive and any DOS (CPM?) to move beyond the tape cassette at 1200 baud, but I couldn't afford one - and/or feed the kids.
<grumble> Huh. People these days just don't know how lucky they are!!! </grumble>
> Windows 10 support adds native printing - an alternative to jumping through hoops with Google’s cloud printing service or an OEM equivalent - and management capabilities to the humble Chromebook.
I just VNC or FTP into my humble Raspberry Pi (with CUPS etc installed) and I can network print, scan and do loads of cool stuff with no probs - apart from being a bit slow sometimes.
M$? - no thank you.
