We proudly present the unveiling of our first collaboration with Pininfarina, one of the most traditional names in design: the BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupé. In other words: Consummate elegance.

So I was looking online for a comparison in between C and C++ and I came upon this hilarious comparison"


C is the crotchety old man who lives in the engine room. He is perpetually tinkering, occasionally mumbling words that make no sense to anyone, but might be old Norse ("scanfing vastart, strtok div frexping calloc! Err, no."). When he's not mumbling, he's waving his little antique pistol in the air and ranting about how real men take out their own garbage. Despite this, he's a pretty chill teacher; he hands you the tools, points you in the right direction, and gets out of your way. But he'll just sit back and cackle when, as inevitably happens, you turn a wrench the wrong way and scalding steam erupts into your face.


C++ is the mad professor who's had this machine for sale in SkyMall catalogues for years now – it takes up an entire room and provides thirty-seven hundred different methods of producing delicious home-cooked meals in just three minutes flat! Really, most of the people buying this contraption just put it in a back room and limit their use to the juicer attachment and maybe just maybe the pasta maker. But you're sure you can do better! You buy the service manual from the professor and go to figure the thing out, only to discover that the person who designed the thing is none other than the crotchety old man who lives in the engine room.


In terms of power:
C is a chainsaw.

C++ is a 50-foot tall earthmover that mows down everything in its path, and has giant chainsaws sticking out of its wheel hubs to boot.

Sure, both can clear trees out of your way, but...

In terms of special:
C is a rockstar.

C++ is a narco-syndicate collective of superheroes.
I hope this clarifies.

Oddly, and disturbingly enough - makes sense to me!

Politeness and Psychological Distance: A Construal Level Perspective

Politeness is an integral part of life in any human society. Whenever we address a person, we choose how polite to be, ranging from polite forms such as “dear Professor Friedman” to the more colloquial “hey, Ron.” How polite we choose to be not only reflects how close we feel to a person but also helps to create or maintain the feeling of closeness or distance. Goffman's (1959) symbolic interactionism theory describes the many ways people use to communicate, create, and maintain social roles. In this theory, social distance is a prime characteristic of social roles, and politeness serves to regulate social distance. More recent theories of politeness (P. Brown & Levinson, 1987) share the view that politeness serves to both signify and create social distance.

Take a leap

Self discovery starts with you.....no one can take this journey for you or tell you how it will go or where it will take you. So what are you waiting for? #philosophy #karmaexperiment

Are You a Tiger Or A Sheep

There sure are lots who just follow the words of others in this day and age... Even more so on the Internet. Think for yourself... keep on with the keeping on.. and avoid those who do everything they can to steal your sunshine      Raaaawrrrr....

Tomb

Tomb is 100% free and open source software to make strong encryption easy to use. A tomb is like a locked folder that can be safely transported and hidden in a filesystem. Keys can be kept separate: for instance the tomb on your computer and the key on a USB stick.

You know the feeling--you're walking to the coffee machine, and you feel a tingle of knowledge-needing excitement. You pull out your phone to check Twitter, and promptly walk into a wall... The same thing is happening to your creative mind.
