    [–] This actually happened jbp12 1 points ago in HistoryMemes

    Again, what? You said that adopting racial laws were a requirement from Hitler for military aid in Albania and Greece, both of which happened after the first Racial Laws were passed in 1938. And while Mussolini and others may have spoken against antisemitism early on, actions speak much louder than words. Robespierre originally spoke out against guillotining people en masse, but he was responsible for the Reign of Terror in France and that's what people remember him for, and for good reason. Similarly, Mussolini's passing of Italy's Racial Laws put him in the history books as an antisemite and racist, and for good reason.

    Actually try to read your sources before posting them

    No need for the condescending attitude, especially on a topic that's been settled for decades.

    What? Mussolini, the founder of fascism, started passing Italy's Racial Laws (Leggi razziali) in 1938, before WWII even started...

    [–] SGA Seeking Signatures for New Dining Resolution jbp12 9 points ago in gatech

    Apparently Sodexo and Aramark (and other private dining services) provide high quality food for clients that pay a lot for the high quality stuff. GT, of course, is stingy when it comes to basic student services like food, so we end up with shitty quality food.

    [–] Decatur Reps Sponsor Bill Outlawing Confederate Symbols jbp12 1 points ago in Atlanta

    The bill actually doesn't prevent displaying the Confederate flag on private property. It does ban displaying privately owned flags/monuments on public land, but that's a different matter. I think the author of this article was too lazy to read the whole bill.

    Her LinkedIn profile says she still works at Panasonic North America, and her name doesn't appear in the GT directory. How long has she been at GT?

    [–] Concept question jbp12 1 points ago in LinearAlgebra

    Yes. A specific example would be Span{(1, 0, 0), (0, 1, 0), (1, 1, 0)} and Span{(1, 0,0), (0, 1, 0), (1, 2, 0)}.

    [–] Concept question jbp12 1 points ago in LinearAlgebra

    Ah, you're right. I forgot about that definition.

    In that case, you can absolutely have two sets of vectors - one linearly independent and the other linearly dependent - with the same span. For example, if x and y are linearly independent vectors, then Span{x, y} is the same as Span{x, y, x+y}.

    [–] Concept question jbp12 1 points ago in LinearAlgebra

    Linear independence refers to the vectors themselves, not the sets of vectors. What exactly do you mean in your question?

    From the GTPD Non-Crime Logs, it looks like it was a "suspicious person".

    [–] Romanticizing Slavery jbp12 5 points ago in HistoryMemes

    American Civil War, Nigerian Civil War, Yugoslavian Civil War, Uruguayan Civil War, and plenty others. You can find a list of Civil Wars on Wikipedia, which very prominently mentions the American Civil War as a civil war.

    [–] Romanticizing Slavery jbp12 9 points ago in HistoryMemes

    The party platforms of today aren't remotely comparable to their platforms 150 years ago. Not to mention the membership of the Southern states changed from mostly Democrat to mostly Republican in this time period...

    [–] Romanticizing Slavery jbp12 6 points ago in HistoryMemes

    Lots of civil wars are attempts by one part of a country to leave. They're still civil wars.

    At the University of Georgia there's a sign that mentions how most of its students fought for the Confederacy during the "Southern War of Independence"
