The non-clickbait title should read, "But you almost certainly don't need to, and are equally unlikely to be able to do so if you do need to".

ASLR is only bugged in EMET mode; a cluster Elephant | [mastadon] of system lock downs that make guns firing bullets in 2 directions at once seem like extra safe nursery toys. Unless you're the sysadmin whose full time job is dealing with all the ways it blows up in your users faces you're not going to be able to touch any of the settings required because you've been locked out for your own good. (Or someone's paranoid power trip anyway.)
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
