Trust Chicky [another poster] to believe in something as outdated as heliocentrism.

Oh yeah? Just try to calculate (accurately!) the future position of planets, stars and comets under geocentrism.

You're right. The universe doesn't orbit around out sun.

What this planet needs is a good herd-culling.

Cosmocentrificationism isn't a real word either, but I like it more better.

Some weeks ago I got into a flamewar with that particularly pretentious form of Apple fanboy known as a "MacBook Air" supporter. He argued that it was a step forward to make a laptop that was meant as an adjunct to a desktop -- in other words, what laptops were up until about ten years ago, before they became powerful enough to operate as solo systems. The fact that he was capable of believing this with an evident straight face reminded me that while still a Mac fanboy, I gave up the Koolaid years ago.
This guy. This guy is like that guy. Only even dumber.

Brian X, I simply must comment (a year later). ^_^ We're moving toward a society with one computer per household to a society with one computer (often more than one, if you count things like Xboxes and iPhones) per
When there's two or more computers in a household they don't both need optical drives or large hard drives; hence the meteoric rise of the netbook, which is obviously not designed to be one's sole computer.
So in that respect, that Mac fanboy might have been correct, although the MacBook Air isn't a very good example (it's a more traditional "premium" ultraportable, and those have been around for a while). However, it is things like home servers, not the traditional desktop, that these "truly personal computers" (and set top boxes, and stereos, and game consoles) will work with. As the amount of connected devices in the average household grows, it will become increasingly convenient (and cost-effective) to have one device storing all the data and serving it to all the devices. Apple is betting that "hub" will be an iMac, Microsoft is betting it will be a Windows Home Server, and others are betting that we'll simply store all of our data on the internet instead (the "cloud"). It'll be an interesting next few years. ^_^

Yeah! Next thing you know, he'll believe in trully outdated stuff like gravity and fluid dinamics...

@Clown: Or even that the earth is round! Honestly, Chicky, get with the times.

Yeah, that's stupid, we've know for ages that our solar system is not the center of the universe.

Yeah, Chicky is a clown. Next thing he'll be telling us unicorns don't exist.
