    Sigh. The comments on the food price spike article make it very very clear that the poster is an absolute idiot. You do yourself no favors by linking again to this type of trivially refuted alarmism.

  2. I think the quotes in the “computer” article are intended to emphasize that the word is being used in a manner that most people aren’t familiar with. Not many people today realize that “typewriter”, “calculator”, and “computer” used to refer to professions rather than devices.
