    There it is again: there's no article on snopes.com refuting the controversy, therefore it must be true.

    Interesting logic, yessiree...

    Oh, the irony. I postulate the existence of an article based on the fact that I am looking at it in black and white in possibly the world's most reliable reference, and its existence is argued against based on its absence from Wikipedia. I suppose the real solution would be to enrich Wikipedia by typing this section in word-by-word. I'm pretty sure that's plagiarism, though.
    Funny, I'm not sure that a single word in your reply related in any way to the point I was making.

    That is, unless you consider that you just identified the exact logical fallacy that you yourself keep making (Hint: when you said something must be accurate because it isn't refuted on snopes.com; can you really not see how this is the same thing?). I suppose that is ironic.

    Ignore the imposter.

    I don't see what's so hard for you to understand. I am not the one arguing from ignorance, it is the one who says, "This must be one of the first results of a Google search or it didn't happen." There a whole culture whose point of reference is "I'm feeling lucky" searches and answers to questions posted on Facebook. This moron claims that no such event occurred based solely on this absence of evidence whereas I say it did occur, not because I remember reading it in the papers, but because I have a fabulous reference that I paid plenty for in my study. Does this establish the authenticity of the cloth? No, but following the thread to the beginning, it says that it has not been proven to be "medieval" using any sort of rigorous analysis.

    The problem is that we have no evidence other then your own words to verify that what you say about your reference source is correct. And it's more then just not appearing in the first page, or in the "I'm Feeling Lucky" results. It's that no results are found for "Daimon Clairton" at all (both Bing and Google have the same result). Nor are any relevant results found for the Clairton Controversy. If a subject was important enough to warrant inclusion in the Encyclopedia Britannica, then it should be important enough to have at least one relevant hit on either Bing or Google (and I checked through 6 pages of results on both sites).

    TRWTF is that none of these handles the example of a true whitespace character, which is sometimes "\n", "\t", "w". The bigger WTF is that this is the third time I've pointed it out, but the idiot mods keep deleting it.
    I onder here you got the idea that these characters are equal to hitespace?

    At least "primary sources", so that we can check who really made the claim.

    But no, we get "Encyclopedia Britannica" here, "Encyclopedia Britannica" there.

    Is that some kind of holy book that we must believe every word of?

    Epic Solution:

    while(string.contains(" ")) { string = string.replace(" ", " ") }

    or why not give the correct solution

    string = string.re_replace("[ ]{2,}", " ")

    edit from above, replace a single space with 2 spaces where necessary...

    I am amazed by the fact that most Java developers dont know (or dont care) about commons-lang (or apache commons in general)

    Apache commons? How about the runtime.

    We have a fellow here who decided to implement a huge class to encode (or "encrypt" as he likes to call it) a string as utf8. Yes. Really.

    I've actually used/seen C code with //eof on the last line of every file in a project.

    It's actually useful in some cases. If there's a bad sector on the hard disk and a file was truncated and recovered, then you can quickly see that the file is not complete and needs to be restored from a recent backup. Admittedly, this made more sense when I carried all my source code in a toolbox full of diskettes, but it's still true.

    Does it handle 'w'?

    $ cat wspace.c
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <ctype.h>
    
    int main(){
        printf("'w' is %sa space character.\n",isspace('w')?"":"not ");
        return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }
    $ gcc wspace.c && ./a.out
    'w' is not a space character.
    

    Yup. Handles 'w'.

    not a programmer, i don't even pretend(does raw html count?), but i can see a better way to fix multiple spaces(but not how to exclude text blocks(since writers put two spaces between sentences)). probably still a messy kludge, but search and replace two spaces with one space would fix code, if the compiler doesn't pay attention to multiple white spaces.

  • Heretic (unregistered) in reply to boog

    Actually there is nothing wrong with this logic. This is derived from the ever popular "creationist" / "intelligent design proponent" argumentation that whatever doesn't disprove the existance of god, proves it. And if something cannot currently be explained is must be designed by god. And this is the only form of argumentation religious fanatics know.

    And what's this about 287 pages of falsified information? Is The Book of Genesis really that long?
