It past the spell choker.
I'm really curious how a bra will stop me (a man) from over eating.
It interfaces with Google Glass. Whenever she looks at a fat guy, a little sign pops up from between her boobs that says, "I don't date fat guys".
I'm using Chrome with NotScript and Flash Blocker. Even when I permitted the scripts and Flash, that 3d frogger thing was bogged down and unworkable.
That's OK though. All they have to do is go to their own web site and learn how to code.
OK, B+C can be evaluated once when you assign A, or it can be evaluated every time you evaluate A. Sometimes you know that A will not change after you calculate it, or that a fresh value of A is required, and sometimes you don't.
Evaluating A every time is not only slow, it might not even be correct. Let's say you pull in some weather data and then render a map. The frontal zone should be a smooth line. If you pull in new frontal boundary data while rendering the map... you'll render a broken front.
Sorry. It looks like the programmer still has to think. Re-calculating A every time the symbol A occurs may or may not be required.
I hope this silver bullet is better than the last one.
"I'm not too worried about that" said every vampire on the planet.
That's my thought. If I've got time and money to burn, and I'm going to fire up the soldering iron, I want a wall full of blinking lights that signify... ummm... that the FUTURE has arrived. Yes, see? That green one there? It means we're in the future. The red one? When it starts blinking, you're time is running out...
It's funny that this should come up because just now I was in a fast food Chinese place by myself. I was watching people, and there were these two middle-school aged kids with smart phone splaying games or something. I was thinking, these kids have never known a time when tiny little computers were not everywhere. When I was a kid, we thought a home computer would be a wall full of blinking lights.
To Manela's credit, while he advocated for nationalizing of banks, gold production, other mining, and the abolition of private property, he didn't enact these policies when he eventually took control of the government. He was smart enough to understand that SA badly needed foreign investment, and nationalizing industry and destroying property doesn't get you investors.
So he was smart enough to use communist rhetoric as a first stage, and then jettison it to fire stage 2 and insert South Africa into a successful orbit.
Would that all communists were that smart. We could have avoided a lot of problems.
When I see a bag of radioactive or biologically hazardous material being stored improperly, I call the authorities.
He where's Dan? I dunno. Some guys from Homeland Security took him away shortly after lunch.
True story--in order to get my California driver's license I needed a birth cert. A copy would not do. I had to go back to my place of birth and get a copy with a raised seal on it. This was not easy to do directly or quickly. An expediting service was the most reasonable way to do it. The expediting service used security questions to assure that it was really me. There were several questions. Most of them were easy. Then I came to... "which one of these is a phone number you used in the past 10 years". Oh crap. I don't know anybody's phone number now. It's "open list, select Jerry, dial". Jerry's number? Couldn't tell you to save my life. MY number? I never dial it of course. It used to be staring me in the face on my bill all those many years ago... until the bills became an automatic charge on my credit card... and I moved several times... into different area codes.
I stared at the numbers. One looked familiar. I went with my gut. I was right; but I was sweating bullets.
Actions that will ruin my entire life do not "incent" me to act worse, they in fact very much incent me not to ruin my life.
What happens when your life is ruined whether you act or not? For some people life is becoming a choice between ruin in anonymity, or ruin with some notoriety and a chance to strike a blow for justice. If enough people feel that way, we're ripe for revolution.
I'm the first to admit that anything quantum blows a wormhole through my head. I struggle to find anything that will allow me to grasp it. I'm a programmer, dammit.
"God doesn't play dice with the Universe"
Maybe, just maybe, "God doesn't waste CPU cycles rendering windows that are trivially culled from the scene graph".
So. When you observe the particle its window comes to the top and The Program has to do all the rendering calculations.
Cue attempt by actual physicists to explain why this attempt to grasp the concept is totally inadequate or the more enjoyable funny bits about how the Universe is written in either Lisp or Perl.
Don't forget, we're dealing with wholesale ignorance on the part of the media.
Having recalled stories from back when the Carrera GT was introduced there weren't many reports that the car was particularly dangerous. This is a track-oriented high end sports car. Most cars in that performance category are challenging to drive near the limits. I do have to admit a caveat; most in the automotive press gush over every new model that comes along, saving criticisms for when the car is well past it's prime. But the fact remains that there are a multitude of performance cars out there that are notorious for being difficult to drive.
Just because a car handles well doesn't mean it does the driving for you. Unfortunately, this is where the vast majority of people display massive ignorance, because they do believe that a car will save you from mistakes and incompetence. And they're convinced that the better it performs the better it will do the job.
The two guys in that Carrera GT were supposed to be more competent than most given that they have race cars. But given that they weren't career racers doesn't mean they were actually competitive, let alone any good at it. There are gentleman races all over the country where rich men bring high priced toys to the track and many show an embarrassing lack of skill.
But let's assume these guys were decent. That still doesn't change the fact that they were on an unpredictable public road, engaged in a dangerous activity. These guys crash all the time at tracks, even when they're good; they aren't pushing hard enough to win if they aren't risking a crash. So take that mentality to the open road and problems ensue. There's a reason why car insurance rates are higher for race car drivers.
All this doesn't consider the possibility that the Carrera GT might have been modified by Paul Walker's shop. I don't think that's particularly relevant, because the stock car was fast enough. But if it were the car would likely have been even more difficult to control.
Unfortunately, we've got all this ridiculous analysis when the reality is actually quite simple. A couple of guys went out for a joyride, wrecked and died. It's no different than when some kid does the same in a Honda Civic.
People have to **USE** Bitcoin or Bitcoin dies..
It "dies" in the sense that it fails as currency. That doesn't necessarily mean that it loses value. Many things have value but are not used as currency.
For example, any given art collection at a major museum is a financial success in terms of wealth preservation; but a failure as currency. Nobody trades fractional Metropolitans. Any sales to or from the museum are converted into currency first. Auctions are conducted in currency, etc.
You might say that comparing bits to art is ridiculous, since one has aesthetic value and can draw tourists and the other doesn't. Art, however, is a matter of taste. All value apart from bare essentials like food, shelter and clothing is somewhat of a collective delusion. There's nothing to bar one BitCoin from beating the Mona Lisa, except taste.
I learned to code simple things in basic, use a compiler, and run a program around age 11. But I did not learn programming until two years later using FORTRAN
I learned BASIC and then assembly when I was 14. I'm not sure when I learned programming. Arguably, none of us have.
If the Commodore 64 taught us anything it's that the language shipped with the system is crap and you have to dig deeper. Maybe yesterday's PEEK and POKE assembly programmers are reflected in the next generations. Maybe there are "screw these web apps, let's hack the browser" kids in grade-school today. That will lead them into C, C++ and even assembly if they're curious enough.
we spend more money on HC in america than any other country
We spend more money on bullshit that calls itself "health care" in America than any other country. FTFY.
Insurance administration. Byzantine pricing and "network relationships". Malpractice insurance. Fake cures. Over-the-counter tomfoolery: herbs -- may or may not have medicinal value, and may or may not be used properly. Homeopathy -- placebo value only. Vitamins -- not needed unless you have a specific deficiency, which you probably don't.
