Today I stumbled across the weirdest thing. I was comparing the performance of MyLisp to L# and MyLisp was terribly slow in comparison. (Running the exact same Fibonacci code) So I checked the code...

I've used both firefox and chrome for years now. I was using chrome for a bunch of things because it was less of a memory hog and had fewer issues when I had a bazillion tabs open. Well, as of a few weeks ago, I switched back to firefox full time because, get this, when chrome gobbled all the memory in sight, it didn't just crash the browser, it hung my entire machine, and I had to power cycle it.

Sorry, when you start screwing around with my OS and starving it of RAM, you have to go. Thanks for the memories, chrome.
Remember when we all switched from Firefox to Chrome? Chrome was stripped down, simple but fast as hell. It was like browsing the web on a whole new computer. These days Chrome is bloated, slow, and constantly crashing on me. I've finally reached the breaking point.

"Gun rights for felons: if you're not for it, you obviously don't actually care about gun rights." - a comment on original.
 
Currently, the logic on the Second Amendment is that gun rights are most protected when the gun is for self-defense. My question is this: who else but people with prior felonies is more in need, statistically, of a weapon for self-defense? Who else, but a man reformed, has more to fear from his former fellows?

A junior college basketball player was recently challenged to what seemed to be a "friendly" pickup basketball game by two Philadelphia police officers.

Remember that Mitt Romney made a pile of money for his investor and partners at Bain, not so much for the companies they took over. This is a feature, not a bug.

You know something +Happy Jack said which bothered me and I didn't google it to in-depth but was "the NRA doesn't defend criminals" [at least nationally] and he might be correct. You look at all major cases and the NRA only supported preemptive law challenges whereas all the major cases which involved challenges to actual convictions (Lopez. Stewart, etc.) they are notoriously silent on or, in some sad cases, pro-conviction even if it undermined gun rights. God I despise the NRA more and more.

The DEA likes to borrow stuff. It's just not very good about returning borrowed items in the same shape it got them. Like a woman's Facebook account. Or a businessman's semi truck. And his employee's life. Craig Patty...

I've been opposed to the DEA for many years, but when I saw this article I decided "terrorist cell" is an apt description of them.

Introduction
If you're adding me to a circle because you know me, send me a message so I can add you back (preferably via email or just post a message with the distribution set to "+Peter da Silva") because I can't keep track of notifications well enough to be sure I haven't missed someone... especially those of you who I know by an uncommon name.

If you're sending me a notification or an invitation to a community, and you don't know me, I *will* report you for spam. If you're sending me an invitation to a community and I do know you, I will just take this as permission to get sarcastic about it. This includes game notifications. I don't play games in Google Plus. I don't want to play games in Google Plus.
