The differences between programming languages made very clear
C was the great all-arounder: compact, powerful, goes everywhere, and reliable in situations where your life depends on it. C++ is the new C — twice the power, twice the size, works in hostile environments, and if you try to use it without care and special training you will probably crash.

I would add to the description of C, "However, it is very unforgiving. If you signal a left turn but you turn right, the vehicle explodes. C practitioners consider this a 'feature'." ;)

Kick Ass 2: Best superhero movie I have ever seen!

I will clarify further (without spoilers) as it seems rotten tomatoes disagrees with me. It seems to me that many of those critics have seen this and the previous Kick-Ass as simply being an opportunity for the shock of explicit violence mixed with some fun comedy. Evaluated as such, it makes sense that they didn't like this one as much as the first one since it is not really focused on giving the audience that (though it is still there to a more minor level).

What I see, however, in the first film that made me enjoy it so much was an analysis on what it wold be like in the real world if someone tried (without really knowing what he was doing) to be a masked hero. The explicit violence was a good way to demonstrate how those fights would have a level of ugliness that is stylized away in most renditions of superheroes. We do get the interplay of Big Daddy and Hit Girl who do know what they are doing added in and a mob boss whose schemes they find themselves in, but for the most part the first film is an analysis on the romanticism we put into superheroes fighting crime vs. what it would actually be like if we tried it ourselves.

I really like that the second film doesn't try to copy the first film, but extends it. It focuses on continuing with the questions of how would becoming a superhero affect your life? How would others actually react to this? What would you be forcing into your life and the lives of those around you? Are you actually making the world better or just complicating things?

I felt this film dealt with these and other questions in such an honest and appropriate manner that it made me feel a much richer connection. This film has bridged the gap that I generally feel with superhero films; it did not request a strong suspension of disbelief that sometimes undermines the issues at play. I felt I could better relate and accept the characters, especially because there was a strong attempt to humanize them. this is why it was my favorite superhero movie I have ever seen and why I am now attempting to find and purchase some really awesome posters for my room.

smh I feel like I should have somehow figured something like this was soon to come from Google

Dear Google users—

You may be aware of press reports alleging that Internet companies have joined a secret U.S. government program called PRISM to give the National Security Agency direct access to our servers. As Google’s CEO and Chief Legal Officer, we wanted you to have the facts.

First, we have not joined any program that would give the U.S. government—or any other government—direct access to our servers. Indeed, the U.S. government does not have direct access or a “back door” to the information stored in our data centers. We had not heard of a program called PRISM until yesterday.

Second, we provide user data to governments only in accordance with the law. Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process. Press reports that suggest that Google is providing open-ended access to our users’ data are false, period. Until this week’s reports, we had never heard of the broad type of order that Verizon received—an order that appears to have required them to hand over millions of users’ call records. We were very surprised to learn that such broad orders exist. Any suggestion that Google is disclosing information about our users’ Internet activity on such a scale is completely false. 

Finally, this episode confirms what we have long believed—there needs to be a more transparent approach. Google has worked hard, within the confines of the current laws, to be open about the data requests we receive. We post this information on our Transparency Report whenever possible. We were the first company to do this. And, of course, we understand that the U.S. and other governments need to take action to protect their citizens’ safety—including sometimes by using surveillance. But the level of secrecy around the current legal procedures undermines the freedoms we all cherish.
