Я хочу купить huuuuge водометы и взять велосипед на спину в то время как мой второй пилот стреляет невинных прохожих!

A very important topic in South Africa is to do with firearms and our rights to our personal безопасность. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not in the belief that everyone should have the right to bear a bazooka, M82, или AK-47 * – not unless you have to defend yourself against an army **.

Однако, I do believe that I have the right to own a weapon of some sort for the purpose of self defense. I doubt I’d ever purchase a firearm however, not even a small pistol, but I’d prefer to think that should the need arise, I still have the right.

Есть 2 opposing teams. There’s the pro-gun team and the anti-gun team (pro-control). I once thought that it would be okay for, say, the pro-control team to win all the battles until we get down to where only small firearms are allowed, or perhaps larger firearms under very strict circumstances. Recently, my thinking has shifted. If the pro-control team wins all the legal battles up to that point, what’s to say they won’t win the next battle as well and outlaw firearms completely?

I’m on the pro-gun team simply because I believe that I should have the right to own, possibly, that small pistolwhich in a way is silly because I’ll вероятно never exercise the right. Its most definitely not pointless however. Снова, I’d rather have the right and not need it.

Picture this highly unlikely scenario: You want to protect your right to own a small pistol; personal bazookas and gatling cannons are legal; legislation is in place to start making bazookas and gatling cannons illegal. Assuming you’re pro-pistol, should you stand aside and let the opposing team (pro-control) win that legal battle? Its an important moral dilemma to think aboutand one that you should probably apply to all your other political beliefs.

Here is some food for thought:

  • South Africa has the highest (or second-highest, depending on who you ask) crime rate in the world.
  • 98% of gun-related crime in South Africa involve the use of illegal (unlicensed) firearms (т.е., gun control laws do not adequately curb gun-related crime).
  • Due to relatively recent changes in firearms laws requiring the re-licensing of all previously-licensed firearms, the CFR (Central Firearms Register) has been tasked, for the period of 2006 к 2009, to process more than four times the number of license applications each year than ever previously processed in an individual year.
  • It now takes between 12 и 24 months to get a firearms license.

To be honest, I’m still of two minds on this one. I’m very much in favour of being responsible for our country’s firearmsbut I certainly don’t want the pro-control group to make any moreprogress”.

Maybe the world could learn a thing or 2 from the Swiss. Their citizenry has been armed to the teeth since the 19th centuryand they’re also the only country to have stayed out of both World Wars.

* For those who do own firearms, Я sincerely hope you’re not delusional about the dangers. I hope you have the ammunition stored in a safe separate from your firearm’s own safe, and that everyone in the household understands and respects how dangerous firearms really are.

** Not likely.

Как кто-то может быть так зол и так порочный, подтолкнуть кого-то, чтобы подтолкнуть их далеко за пределы, где они уже говорил вам, что они не готовы рисковать. И когда доллар получает остановился, чтобы потом просто упасть, что человек и обвиняют их в худшее.

Больно, кто вы должны быть забота о. Жизнь отстой иногда. Вы не всегда получаете то, что вы хотите, но это не значит, что вы должны сделать другие народы’ живет несчастным.

To fail at failing. I recently came across a discussion where a user was advised to run a fail command. The result was, luckily, as follows:

[user@user-desktop ~]$ cd ~/.Trash; sudo rm -rfv *
колотить: кд: /home/user/.Trash: No such file or directory
bash: юг: command not found
[user@user-desktop ~]$

The command кд ~/.Trash Сhanges the directory (или present working directory) to the /home/user/.Trash folder. В этом случае, this folder doesn’t exist and so the pwd stays as /home/user/, the folder where все the user’s files and settings are saved.

The command rm -rfv * гиmoves all files in the pwd. Thevpart indicates that it must show verbose output indicating what is being done during this removal process. The prefixed command юг (сubstitute user из) has the command run as корень. Таким образом, had the юг command been functional, пользователь would have deleted every document he had ever saved in his home folder.

Word of advice from a backup admin: backup often. 😉

Sometimes I think I shouldn’t let Пиджин try to make me Jedi.
