In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

It's not easy, but it is simple. It's not a choice between two equals.


I remember being told "all men are equals" but I guess that was bullshit, eh?. it's interesting to note that at some point in time some would have made the same argument ("they're not equals") when choosing between a white man and a black man or, hey, a straight man and a gay man. I bet Turing himself would have been less than happy with your argument.

Also, you don't know what that other guy could accomplish later in life if you let him in the boat.

You know... people that build great companies and give millions of people jobs are total cold hearted assholes, because they can count.


That's because they're quite often sociopaths.
