You're one in a million.  That means there's seven thousand people exactly like you.


That's quite an assumption, that there aren't more, there are plenty planets and universes out there.

Well they wouldn't exactly be human unless somehow they went through the same evolutionary steps.

From Roquen's Dictionary of Computer Science:

interface (java): A type definition designed to allow multiple inheritance of type to address cross-cutting concerns in some set of two or more otherwise distinct types.  In practice however it is most often used to address the fact that java doesn't support C/C++ header files.  Another unintended usage includes design-by-composition, without using, ya know, the composition part.

And I'm -so- glad this is the case. Everything relating to a class in one source file, not two or more that are scattered all over the place. Absolutely loving it.

@gimbal: Ah, but you (currently) can't break one type into two using interfaces...you have to use at least three.  If you're only breaking into two, then the size of one doesn't decrease.

(Oh, add added more to my definition)

So do I!  However, they do scatter code around a bit more, which @gimbal said he doesn't like - worth it in my opinion.

Defender methods sounds weird. If we can get defender methods, why not let us extend multiple classes too? I don't see how adding executable code to interfaces (indirectly at least) is any different.

The self folks did that and look what happened:  class-based kids come up with 40-ish lego block to try to pretend it's not there and prototype-based kids are afraid of the infinite space around them and set about pretending like they're class-based.

American Diet guidelines:

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is the United States' largest organization of food and nutrition professionals:

http://www.eatright.org/Media/content.aspx?id=6442474717

Quote
It is the position of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that the total diet or overall pattern of food eaten is the most important focus of healthy eating. All foods can fit within this pattern, if consumed in moderation with appropriate portion size and combined with physical activity. The Academy strives to communicate healthy eating messages that emphasize a balance of food and beverages within energy needs, rather than any one food or meal.

Funny:

"All foods can fit within this pattern, if consumed in moderation ..."

That is actually true.
Nutritionists nowadays are brainwashed people who can only say: "EAT MORE FIBERS, DON'T EAT RED MEAT, DON'T EAT PROCESSED FOOD". Also, they hate the food industry so much that it would disappear if they could make it happen.

Well, some can agree with them, but what they say about stuff like bottled sterile milk? over9000-grain bread? integral/organic morning cereal? They are all processed food, which are also healthy.
Then you have some said "unhealthy" food. Coca-cola? It has a 0 calories version. worried about the sodium? Some fruits have more than an entire bottle. Chocolate? it has a lot of beneficial stuff, but ONLY if you choose poorly, will also have a lot of sugar.

The food industry is not the enemy. It's the habits.

I don't know where you guys are from, but the obesity epidemic in America has got way out of hand in where everything is under the target scope. They are forcing calorie labels on all fast food and vending machine entities. There was even some reports stating that sodium and sugar need to be drastically minimized in a proper diet. In all respect to these reporters, I think people should just exhibit a little more self control.

I attribute it to just pure laziness, because it actually takes a bit of effort to live a healthy lifestyle. I think a major part of it is just that people don't feel responsible for what happens to their own bodies. They believe that if they eat unhealthy one day, that a quick diet can thin them out again. Rinse and repeat.

I had an old teacher that pretty much sums this entire problem up.

"Our bodies have not undergone any massive changes in the last 3000 years. So guess what, the same foods that allowed our ancestors to live a healthy lifestyle, is going to be the same foods that will allow us to live a healthy lifestyle."

I think we all just need to wise up on our eating habits in general.

I think it's addiction to food, and modern health care. It's actually so good, that people expect their bodies to be fixed a decade before the abuse is about to kill 'em.

If we wouldn't have modern health care, people would think twice about stuffing everything in reach in their mouth. As they'd see everybody around them that did that to die horrible deaths after years of agony, where extremities would be dieing and people going blind due to diabetes or some other obesity related desease. There also wouldn't be skaters, but that's another story.

The food industry is not the enemy. It's the habits.

The industry spends BILLIONS, with a B, every year, in trying to ingrain the habits and nutrition policy of nations.  If it didn't work, they wouldn't spend it.
