TIL that 'Williams Syndrome' is considered to be the 'opposite' of Autism - sufferers combine cognitive impairment with high verbal skills, empathy, and extroversion submitted by elkanahaon to TIL

Bastou 1 points 17 points (+18|-1) ago

There's a (French) Canadian movie about a girl with Williams Syndrome, played by an actress who actually has it. It's called Gabrielle after both the actress and character (they kept her real name to make the shooting easier and less confusing for her). It was Canada's entry for the best foreign language Oscar in 2013, but it didn't make it into the final 5 nominees (eliminated at the last step before the official selection).

I recommend it.

[Question] Will there be a mass migration from Windows to Linux ? submitted by fuckthisshitagain to technology

Bastou 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago

I think what really prevents a mass migration is not the lack of a user friendly desktop, but the simple fact that it doesn't come pre-installed on new computers. Many casual users don't even know what OS they run on (it's always Windows), and they wouldn't do anything to install a new one if it required them to push a button.

The day computer makers/sellers will offer computers with Linux already installed is the day we can hope casuals may start to consider it.

Anyone else feel like Google as a search engine fucking sucks now? I cannot believe they allow spam/fake/malicious pages to get first page results.... submitted by ElspethTirel to technology

Bastou 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago

That's why I can't find anything anymore with Google. I've noticed it but don't search all that often so I was wondering what I did wrong. It seems it's Google that has been doing things wrong the whole time. Fuck them!

Nah, I just don't care as much as you'd like me to care, and that infuriates you somehow...

But realy though, insulting both homosexuals and people with mental disabilities is really lame. People tend to attack weaker people than themselves and those they fear or don't understand, so I wonder what that makes you.

Personally, I'm neither one or the other, but it doesn't change anything about my perception that anyone deserves respect. Even the most moronic dimwits such as yourself who can't think of positive ways to elevate themselves and have to resort to unimaginative insults towards the weaker people in society who can't or won't defend themselves.

In case you wouldn't understand what I said (I wouldn't blame you, you seem to lack some cognitive faculties), the way you try to insult me actually tells way more about you than it does about me. It shows how judgmental you are about things you don't understand and how you have to resort to name calling because you can't formulate articulate and sensible arguments.

Congrats on the mature and witty reply. I can see you'll go far in life. Or maybe not...
