If there is, and if I was Satan, I'd be worried to be evicted when that guy croaks.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Someone started a single player game and decided to hand over control of his civilization to the adviser?
Facts mattered? Must've been a long time ago.
Money matters. And I don't even want to solve whether the money from those industries that don't want to face expenses to deal with stricter environment laws matters more than that from industries that want to sell the stuff that makes the former compliant with stricter environment laws.
In the old days there may have been some scientific process to determine who's right. You know, with thesis, antithesis and discussion. Today it's way easier: Whoever contributes the most campaign money is right.
Yes, and we're hell bent at making sure no matter what they'd try they won't get out.
You know how to not only kill a joke but bury it and hold the funeral speech...
That has to be one of the worst xkcd comics I've seen in a long time. The left picture shows a white and gold dress against a blue backdrop, and the right picture shows a blue and gold dress against a yellow backdrop. In neither picture does the "gold" look remotely like anything that could be called black.
I think a lot of this confusion is coming from the fact that the white balance of the picture is such that the blue fabric looks like evening light scattering off a white surface (a very light blue), so our eyes are interpreting that as the "white" point, and correcting everything else in the picture to match. So we have a way overexposed very dark object made to look like a slightly underexposed light object.
Why not? Honestly, why would a motivated enough studio not do such a thing? Remember the BMG rootkit fiasco. The only problem for them was that they were caught.
Does anyone else just want to sit down with the genius who decided to put a Java runtime into a standard for home video and have a long, fireside chat?
Possibly involving the poker and some of the larger blocks of firewood?
The Great Extinction, caused by Siberia becoming one gigantic lava bed (probably after an asteroid strike), was a bit further back in time. Geologically, Siberia is old. You might be confusing the vestiges of Ice Age dessication (which was 10,000 years ago) but which involves the organics on the surface with the geology (aka rocks).
Regardless, though, of how the craters are forming, the fact remains that an awful lot of greenhouse gas is being pumped into the air, an awful lot of information on early civilization is being blasted out of existence, and a lot of locals are finding that the land has suddenly become deadly.
Yet still our best telescopes can barely make out its shape.
Damn right, with a silly name like that. Like Hades already said, "what do they wanna call me in Rome? Pluto? I wouldn't even call my dog Pluto!"
That is a good question. The last time the courts ruled on this, the ruling was that the FCC had ceded power and couldn't claim it back without the will of god. Or Congress, or something.
Personally, I'm all in favour of Thor turning up to the Supreme Court, but he probably wouldn't be allowed in on account of not having a visa.
Myth: Anyone gives a damn about factually dubious rants.
As far as I know, Systemd has no capacity to think and therefore has no opinion on net neutrality.
Twitter was a notorious Slashdot sockpuppetry ring. It has since become a microblog service.
