YourLanguageSucks – TheoryOrg.

Nerd alert! Someone at work showed me this page because we were bitching about problems in different coding languages. My favorite is ActionScript, but for some reason everyone is hating on Flash right now as we transition to HTML5. I have almost entirely transitioned my career away from Flash and into JavaScript now, but every day I fight with JavaScript and wish oh so hard that it had been designed as cleanly and intelligently as ActionScript.

So anyway, read through the 34 problems this page lists about JavaScript, then go down to the ActionScript section. They list a total of 2 problems, one of which is also a JavaScript problem.

And I’m an anarchist, so this makes it extra ironic that I miss ActionScript so much as it’s basically owned by Adobe while JavaScript is totally open, but most programmers just don’t realize how amazingly quick and easy it is to develop Flash, or particularly Flex, projects in comparison to using other development environments.

Flash and ActionScript have such a big list of advantages over HTML5, but unfortunately the few drawbacks are pretty significant for just about anything other than graphics-based online gaming.

It just makes me sad that so many people want Flash dead when the actual development of Flash is so clearly superior to similar technologies. I feel like the internet is taking a step backward.

Why Marijuana is not a Crime in America

This is a page I copied from my old, defunct website, Get to Know a Marijuana Dealer. I think it still holds true.

Article 10 – “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or the people.”

This is the tenth amendment in the US Bill Of Rights. This states that the power should be reserved to the states or to the people.

Surveys by the US Department of Health and Human Services have found that 30% of the adult population have “used” marijuana. (The term “used” also implies that the person put the drug to some sort of use, as opposed to merely trying it once.) Some surveys claim that half the population or more has tried an illegal drug of some kind.

The tenth amendment makes it clear that the power needs to be in the hands of the people, and that when the government oversteps its bounds and violates the constitution, and makes criminals out of a third of the population, We The People have not only a right but an obligation to stand up for what we know is right.

The tenth amendment legally and ethically justifies this web site and marijuana distribution in general.

Drug dealers are not criminals. The cops, judges and politicians who uphold unconstitutional laws are the true criminals.
