    The sex of the second child is not affected at all by the sex of the first child; knowing that one of the children is a girl is irrelevant in detemining the sex of the other.

    Well, unless they are monozygotic twins, then the sex of the second is determined by the sex of the first and the probability of the second being a girl is, for all practical purposes, 100% Smiley

  • Building My Own Media App

    Hey guys,

    I would like to start developing a small .net application that can output video identified as a webcam stream, and originating from a directory or list of files. That being said, I'm not sure where to begin. Is it natively possible to mimic a webcam with .net, or do I need to go and seek 3rd party projects to allow this?

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Heck if I know. I would say do what America did and leave, but it certainly didn't make any real difference - America is equally pissing on our rights as the UK is yours. Screw all organized government. You put people in office, pay them ridiculous salaries, and watch as they crap all over the nation - and then the next term, we do it again. People are considerably retarded, but the condition is so wide-spread nobody notices.
    Meanwhile, in America.

    What do you suggest we do?

    • Write to your MP?
      • I already do that and get fobbed off with excuses or a fake air of concern
    • Government petition?
      • Hard to find 1000 people to care enough or can comprehend the implications. Most people just espouse whatever their blacktop tabloids tell them to think
    • Demonstrations
      • Almost always get ignored. See the protests against the Iraq war for example
    • Exercise my right to bear arms? (assuming we had that right)
      • How will shooting anyone help my movement?

    Bwahaha! It works!


    P.S.
    Thanks Jonathan Sampson!
    No problem, man. Thank you for caring enough to do something for these people - need more acts of selflessness like this in the world.

  • Can You Help a Guy Out?

    Just donated. Sorry I couldn't give more to this cause - I supported Siskin's Children Institute in Tennessee for months - it's awesome to see the Children enjoy events like this. God bless you and your efforts, and I hope that many lives are affected by your hard work in helping these men, women, and children.

    WTF. Why do people sit by and let their governments piss all over freedom and privacy? It's astounding how apathetic and stupid people really are.

    You're right, let's go build a campfire, gather around it and sing kum-by-ah (sp?) while we toast marshmallows. Afterwards we can build free housing for the homeless and tend a few farming co-ops to provide free food to the homeless.

    Oh wait, those are unnecessary, since apparently the great cumulative liberal minds have decided that those that are unwilling to do for themselves should be subsidized by those of us that have made enormous sacrifices and efforts for our success.

    I like your point of raising the level of political discourse, I'm glad you pointed it out.

    What exactly has Obama done to raise the level of political discourse again? It's ok, I'll wait while you think ....




    You know what baffles me - Barack raised a lot more money than McCain did...shouldn't he have given some of it to McCain - you know, spread the wealth around?
