  •  So humans aren't programmable? (0+ / 0-)

    What do you think school is? It's programming, perhaps not in the way that you program a silicon based computer; yet the process of teaching is a kind of programming. Isn't that one of the oft repeated memes about modern American schools: they're programming our kids to be good little unquestioning serfs?

    Sure, some people giggle when they see or hear the phrase "I'm so happy and gay!" given the more modern use of gay. Yet they still understand the original meaning. Assuming that people will only understand a more modern use of a word leads to confusion, confusion leads to misunderstandings, misunderstandings leads to anger, anger leads to the Dark Side! ;)
