Re: Proof of Creationism?

Just to clarify guys, I don't support his views. The whole YouTube-commentators-supporting-him thing just took me by surprise because usually they're bickering. Also, since I'm not a science guru, can someone explain to me how something can possible be infinite? In my opinion, something is made, and...

Proof of Creationism?

Video Link This person claims to have proof that *a creator* (not neccessarily the Christian god, 'God') must have created us, he is actually using science to try prove this. In the comments he seems to get people universally agreeing with him, bar one person. His theory goes like this: God is eter...

Re: Visual Studio Crashes

Wouldn't they allow old .NET editions with the new editions? I guess it's about giving us power or Microsoft pushing everyone forward.

Re: Visual Studio Crashes

It says I don't have the permission to delete the folders.

So basically it is now IMPOSSIBLE to uninstall Visual Studio 2005.

Edit: I'm going to try the repair option in Add/Remove programs. Wish me luck!

Re: Telling kids about Santa Claus?

I'd say not. It just seems unnecessary to me, I think morals and discipline can bring upon to children whatever Santa could. But I'd ask them to respect how it is a part of the culture and to not argue with other kids about it.

Re: XKCD - on your Xbox 360

I don't think it should be entirely black and white. Some special effects should have some colour, just to make them more noticeable. For instance, an explosion.

I just think constant black and white will grow bland.

Again, emphasising *some* special effects.
