Comment It is code; the clue is in the name. (Score 2) 49

I program by writing in text files too, but that's just important for interoperability with other tools, it's not the definition of coding. Everyone knows that our CPUs don't execute ASCII, right? If it's Turing-complete, then it can be interpreted or compiled (i.e. "decoded") to do anything you want to execute.

Not really. You are "looking", but you don't have to move the eye to look. In fact there doesn't need to be "letters" at all. You are just "looking at" light/dark patterns and measuring the pupil response. No thinking required, which makes it perfect for people like me who don't like to think.

This is perfect. We now don't even need to move our arms to watch netflix. The peak of civilization has now been achieved.

Oh, by the way, this type of system has already been deployed for paraplegics for many years. And no, you aren't "literally thinking" about letters, you are "looking" at letters. Learn what "literally" means.

Um, no. I'll hate on the people making the calls too. Sprint Telemarkers are legal, so it isn't a problem. They don't call me. The ones that call me when I am on the do not call list are not legal. They are doing illegal things, and they know it, and they don't care. Sociopathic. There are plenty of ways to make money without doing illegal things.
