Oh i thought i remembered them as being rational, and that irrational ones were invalid. But i was wrong.

Yes, a fraction is a rational number. The rational numbers are the set Q such that for all x in Q, x = a/b for some integer a and b (b != 0).

Decimal notation is just a different way to write a rational number.

Since Q is closed under division meaning that a rational divided by a rational is guaranteed to return a rational number (except for division by zero), then having a fraction with a decimal in it is valid.

If you're running it then it wouldn't be unauthorized, so it'd be legal I'd think. If you are running an AWS or whatever then it's up to the cloud provider what they let you do.

I just read a Washington Post article about her and it's really pissing me off.

The center and the right have found that smearing her in the same way as corbyn is really effective, so now anyone who says "hey how about we stop supporting a regime that blows off protester's kneecaps with snipers" is actually an antisemite.

It's immensely frustrating. And it's especially dangerous because if you conflate those two things what you're doing is reinforcing the idea that israel and Judaism are the same thing. So whatever evil Israel does you're imputing onto jews at large.

Not to mention the conflation of "nation" with "ethnicity" plays strongly into ethnonationalistic rhetoric. If "Israel" and "Judaism" are the same then "saudi arabia" and "arabs" are more closely aligned. Same goes for whiteness and western countries.

The whole thing fucking sucks at every fucking level. And we all now they're just doing it because of lobbying and foreign policy agendas. They don't actually have sincere beliefs on this, these op ed writers and politicians who are after ilhan omar and corbyn.
