I mention this because what if we went to another planet in search of intelligent life and found something like an octopus? How would we communicate with them? My guess is by cooking them, and then eating them.
this is natures way of making sure the world doesn't get overcrowded. It's a sad fact but people NEED to die.
Then how do you explain the fact that some of the countries with the highest life expectancies, and almost no severe endemic diseases, are also the ones with the slowest-growing (or even shrinking) populations?
Because they don't spit out 5-10 kids each?
Because their 1.9 children will survive long enough to support them after retirement, and since life is not just a struggle to survive, they are productive enough that they can afford to support their parents.
If one wants to put emphasis on a non-established term, then maybe the <em> tag is more suitable than quotes. One might even link to an explanation of the word.
Not only Germans. Have you seen the function named after Englishman Oliver Heaviside, which has one light and one heavy side?
Notability is important for preventing a potentially slippery slope towards Wikipedia being expected to have an article on every shop, every street, every apartment complex, every popular teacher, and every creative work ever appreciated by more than 10 people.
What is wrong with that?
Sources. There are no secondary, independent sources about every shop, street, apartment complex, popular teacher, creative work, or the fact that there is a pencil lying on my desk right now. No matter how true it is, it is not verifiable in any reasonable sense of the word.
This is what people don't understand when they complain that things are deleted from Wikipedia. If Wikipedia's ambition is to create a credible encyclopaedia of all human knowledge, then it cannot be filled with speculation and half-truths. Even primary sources are suspect. I could easily create a blog or web site that claims something, then create a Wikipedia article that uses my web page as the main source. THAT is the slippery slope that is so often talked about.
How about this then? From http://www.scorpioncomputerservices.com/whoweare.html:

That's production quality.
Unicode seems pretty backwards compatible; have any of the the newer versions overwritten or changed the meaning of older versions (e.g. caused damage)?
Yes. Version 2.0 completely changed the Hangul character set. Korean texts written with Unicode 1.1 were not readable in Unicode 2.0, and vice versa. This was 17 years ago, but note that it was after ISO had accepted version 1.1 as an ISO/IEC standard.
You do not RC. The real Rubik's cube has always used stickers. Only recently have Rubik's started manufacturing cubes with coloured plastic sides.
Actually, C does not try to handle pointers at all. It treats them just like a long int (with the appropriate cast) [...].
That's not actually true. First of all, there is no direct connection between the size of pointers and the size of long int. That is platform and implementation dependent. Secondly, at compile-time, pointer arithmetic differs a lot from that of integers. You cannot add two pointers. You can subtract two pointers to the same type (except void); that will give you the number of elements between them, in the ptrdiff_t type. (In theory, that's only possible if the pointers point to the same array, but the compiler can't know if that's true in the general case.) You can add an integer to a non-void pointer. Adding N to a pointer p is the same as &p[N], i.e. you get a pointer to the Nth element.
A simpler solution would be to just let all the genetically engineered, glow-in-the-dark lab animals out in the wild. The roadkill will light up the roads.
Excuse my ignorance, but wouldn't a 20kHz sine wave sound less harsh or loud compared to a 20kHz square wave?
It would not. The "harshness" is the overtones (40 kHz, 60 kHz, etc.), which you cannot hear. From a mechanical point of view, no matter how quickly the signal switches from low to high, the hairs in your cochlea are bound by their individual resonant frequencies, which limit their respective frequency ranges.
I can refute this trivially within my own household.
Haha! Good one
No, this is getting the cook fired by claiming there is hair in your food, because you spotted an Obama sticker on his car in the parking lot.
Not even close. Eich was not the cook with the power to choose a different amount of pepper; he was the chief executive officer with the power to make the rules that affect all employees, contributors, customers, and possibly even the world's web sites. Eich did not get fired, he was urged by a lot of people to step down, which he finally did.
Odd considering their (Wines) last copyright cockup was entirely due to an internal contributor committing decompiles of Microsoft binaries as contributed code...
The word you are looking for is the opposite of odd.
