"Ten to 20 years out, driving your car will be viewed as equivalently immoral as smoking cigarettes around other people is today."

Therefore, “focus on the deficit” more accurately states the most important key to weight loss than “exercise more and eat less.” Make sure you understand this distinction and then follow this advice.

Love this line from Jeff Atwood at Stack Overflow.
I've been told many times that Google isn't a monopoly, but they apparently play one on the internet. You are perfectly free to switch to whichever non-viable alternative web search engine you want at any time. Just breathe in that sweet freedom, folks.Read more at www.codinghorror.com
