Re: Now they know how it feels.
@Jim, those drugs you took--much as they made your style impressive back in the day--are showing now.

Nope, Newton wasn't a conceited prick who looked down on people who looked upwards in their own way--as that is what he was doing anyway. If you can't look at the sky without being able to resist the thoughts of what others think--fueling your self-conceit by the fact that some thoughts are wrong and yet unify the thinkers of them--then you truly belong with those who never do look up.
The thing that really struck me is the association of 0.1% with the word 'tiny'. Design-by-telemetry will make 'advanced technology' a big fucking joke, and we'll be wondering why we gave up the simple life of cattle, spears, a warm fire--no stupid decency laws requiring us to bow down to Gucci and the likes--and periodic wars when the good life increased our numbers excessively (where we can die a soldiers death instead of being subjected to mental examination because we haven't elbow room to enjoy the fruits of nature), before the year 2030.
Someone who needs a better alias
Governments that control their media and create stories to show the leadership in glowing colours are allergic to the term 'Fake News', surprisingly enough. But we'll go along and believe that it is even possible to increase censorship when it is already total, and throw mud at a bland term for government curated media.
I beg to differ... SSD's need defragging just as much as a spinning platter drive--just that the order of magnitude of access means you don't notice the fragmentation. Also the writes required would deteriorate the life.
Have you never heard of memory fragmentation?

Unless you're one of those who pick recyclable cardboard and plastic from my rubbish bin--and I take my hat off to them--I'm willing to bet (a small amount... according to my means) you're middle class like the rest of El Reg commentards. Which suggests you're somewhat naive when your reading steers you to see the members of the modern pseudo-nobility as one of 'us'.
And 'white' isn't a race. Englishmen are saxon mongrels--the lot of us (I could equally call myself a Nordic mongrel).
You probably have a better education than me, judging by your posts. I've been playing catch-up over the last decade or so with gutenberg, archive.org and wikipedia. One thing is certainly plain to me--Britain is in a cleft stick.
Having climbed to the peak, it is a jump to certain death either way. Have another referendum and you can never take your Parliament at their word again--unless the referendum was as plainly stated as ‘Did you vote in the last referendum and do you believe you were misguided when doing so?' And if yes, what else than to sack parliament?
Instability lies in your future. Instability lies in my present though (former colony which cut off its nose to spite its face). Our Parliament have never followed through, and we all just wait for the next step down the ladder of anarchy. You're welcome to come here, but Englishmen are not much liked (word of mouth, you know).

Amen to that! And if you are not going after all other potential platforms for those holding extreme views, you're simply displaying a pantomime. And if you are ... (*).
* Are we allowed to debate this here El Reg? I'm only about 6 years from getting my badge so wouldn't want to risk it based simply on a hypothetical debate which might offend someone.
I'm tempted to hit that down-arrow... but:
