Have you heard about the Mayflower Accord?
It might not be an "American" (meaning: the government of the United States of America) idea, but it's definitely an American (the occupants of North America) idea.
Not to mention that the American Revolution started in 1776 and the French Revolution was from 1789–1799. The words "All men are created equal" was penned and signed in the Declaration of Independence 13 years before the French Revolution even began, making his arguement completely retarded.
And seemingly 100% of the local news crews, who like to create huge banners reading "SNOWSTORM '10!" with cute animated backgrounds. As if snowing is an actual event.) Fucking Californians.
"I even heard one guy on CNN talk about a "rain event". I swear to God, he said, "Louisiana is expecting a rain event." And I thought, "Holy shit, I hope I can get tickets to that!""
TRWTF is that

He's got like 47lbs of furry porn comics to read. They sell them by the pound, you know.
I thought they came in 50lb bags? You know, like dog food.
In my day we played MUDs over telnet on 2400 baud modems. An 8086/88 XT was sufficicient. For example Infinity at the Virtual World Club of New Mexico, or later Dutch Mountains which we ran ourselves on an printer server because the lag from Europe to the USA was sometimes enormous, while on our server there was only a problem in the rare case someone printed something.
We still chose a class and a race, levelled to level 60, did quests for the Infinity Gauntlet or the Dark Sword and slew monsters like the Purple Snorklewhacker, Puff the Fractal Dragon and Tiamat the Dragon God. These required groups with at least two tanks, preferably an anti-paladin, three healers and 6 damage dealers with complex tactics for the more advanced bosses. We often had up to 80 people online. A fresh level 60 would have around 1300 hitpoints and/or mana, but if you had the best gear and achiements, top players could have up to 5-6k HP if you were a tank, or 4k mana if you were a caster. For the damage dealers the top was if you could generate bug messages in the server log. My Half-giant Monk didn't get further then damage messages in capitals.
Ahh yes, I remember my first BBS too. 2400 baud rate modem connecting to the Wizards Realm BBS. Can't remember the name of that MUD though that they had, something about taking on the four elements: earth air water fire. There was some sphinx that would fuck you up. It was some local (at the time) BBS, a lot of the people would meet up on Friday nights. I'm from New Mexico and I never heard of the Virtual World Club though.
Found their info surprisingly.

i know its from 2005 and that much has changed since then, but the cards in the industry have already been dealt. c/c++ got real-time/embedded/efficient and java got enterprise.
or do you really think that an average Java programmer cares about cpu cycles or ram?
hell if you'd googled memory problems and java, i'm sure the most common response would be setting the -Xm... flags and not "optimizing the code".
Not a very compelling article. While I did like the Doom series, Carmack is hardly the expert on what is the best language. He has made his living on developing rendering engines and video games in C. This is sort of like asking a UNIX fenatic to give a fair evaluation of Windows 7.
The reason most Java developers don't worry about cpu cycles is because they don't have to. For the last time: JAVE IS NOT A LOW LEVEL LANGUAGE! It is not designed to mess with memory address registries. Get over it. It is designed to remove this burdon from the programmer so that they can focus on design rather than low level "did I allocate enough memory?"
So it doesn't perform as fast as native C, boo fucking hoo. If I was writing code for the CIA that needed to be lightning fast or Al Queda would swoop down and bomb the capitol I might go with something else, but if I'm developing some stupid little web app I'm gonna use Spring MVC, get it done in a couple of days and move on with my life in the knowledge that I did not have to suffer through one fucking segmentation fault.
