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).
Of course it "helped". Its a "theatrical placebo". The more theatrical the placebo, the stronger the effect. Trials have shown that sticking pins in the accepted "acupuncture points" is as effective as sticking them any old place. So all the mumbo-jumbo about "chi" energies is just that.
Surely if it "helped tremendously" you wouldn't be still going after ten years. And TCM was invented by Chairman Mao anyway
Anyone who has bad reactions to vaccines should be *promoting* the use of vaccines (alongside research into how to predict/prevent bad reactions). Then if you can't be vaccinated because of bad reactions, you benefit from herd immunity and the decreased amount of disease floating around that might kill you because you can't be vaccinated.
One day someone will try to return a faulty printer to a company that insist they print the return label...
It'll be Java on the server to replace the PHP on the server. Nobody writes Java applets any more. If they do it will be the end - do Java applets even run on phones? I've not seen one (by which I mean a "You need a Java Applet Plugin" placeholder) for years.
I just take issue at the "Most Importantly". How is that most important? Because the end-user shouldn't care. The only people to whom its most important are the Java devs getting the gig. I suspect the PHP devs getting their final wages might be a bit upset. But then again, maybe Y! don't bother maintaining the code and retaining any PHP expertise.
The best publicity for this gun would be for the designer to program it for someone else, then load it, point it at his own head and pull the trigger. Several times. Live. On television. Then give it to the guy it's programmed for and get him to shoot (at a target).
Computer, sudo end program.
The problem with concrete is that it doesn't get enough love and attention, and dirty concrete does look terrible. Maybe in countries with less grime and rain its less of a problem than in the UK. Good clean concrete architecture is amazing though. Why do so many modern buildings hide their concrete and steel behind a skin of brick?
Anyway, get a load of F**k Yeah Brutalism for the best of it. Although a lot of it doesn't exist any more.
Why watch one per year when you can cram that into 23 days or less if you watch via some ad-free on-demand service. 200 hours?
No kid is going to wait a week to see an old episode of a show...
I can't hear the phrase "wide receiver" without thinking of goatse...
A Pedant Writes: A learning curve is a plot of amount of stuff learnt on the y-axis against time on the x-axis. A steep learning curve means you learn quickly. I avoid using "steep learning curve" which I know in common usage is often taken to mean the opposite of its original meaning and use "slow learning curve", since "slow learning" is less ambiguous, hopefully..
You'll thank me later.
Even a watch with a sticker on it saying "You have unread emails and new tweets" is right several times a day.
I do wonder what Bobby Charlton could have done with a modern ball considering he did this with a ball made of inch-thick cowhide with a concrete core that absorbed half its weight in water on a typical English match day.
Its clearly not news, because it happens on a regular basis it seems.
