WARNING - SNUFF (Like TFA but from Texas)
So much so that dwindling fossil fuels can still compete economically with kinetic energy that costs nothing.
Ignoring or ridiculing an observable phenomenon because you have no explanation. Even though that ridicule has precluded any sort of mainstream scientific study. Is pretty unscientific IMO.
Superposition or the simultaneous wave/particle properties of light sound pretty batshit to the layman. But im glad they are being investigated enough to at least present hypotheses to test.
I was an temp admin-monkey for 6 months after things went to shit in 2008/9, in what we called the 'Ministry of Paperwork'. The HR offices for the MoJ. Holders of 60k+ complete records of everyone who ever applied to work in the UK courts. Right up to the top judges and bigwigs.
At this point we were using WinNT on boxes with XP CoAs and paying meeeelions for the privilege. All to run a bespoke Oracle client that topped out NTs user profile limits with excessive caching and borkt the windows session. All built and supported by one of the most predatory firms in the UK, affectionately known as Twatos.
The decision-makers were in another city and were clueless about the day to day running of a computerised office. Let alone data protection.
This sort of incompetence runs to the core of the Civil Service and they get fleeced at every turn. Including by the recruitment agency supplying staff to the HR department.
The idea of the government fining itself is preposterous. Terry Gilliam must be laughing in his grave.
