Wonder if they will have a "Warrant Canary" posting.
Found a way to connect to gmail, but that has issue (gmail doesn't sort right)
Might need to break down and pay to get my data.
Time to move out of Yahoo... (adding another buzz kill!)
2. As the ship will be generational, the new children will do as taught, as it is all they will know since birth.
3. Labor? Prefab houses, meals ready to go. What is left?
(Wow, just realized: for hundreds of years, no one will have seen a male!)
Let's try again. Say you take 150 people to run the ship, and figure to get your 10k population level with these embryos after they arrive. You can incubate them (if you brought the equipment) but then you get 10k squalling infants and only 150 people to provide food shelter education and attention for them for the next decade plus before they start carrying their own weight. It just doesnt work that way.
They wouldn't need to all be born at the same time. Also, the initial population should be all female (obvious reasons). Time the release of new-born to allow for the most genetic diversity. (They may not be happy hatching others eggs but... hey, they've got a new planet to populate!) After the first ~10 births per woman (assuming 150 to start with, starting at age '18') working they 'norm' mortality (adult/child) after about 30-35 years you are looking at a population of about 10K, which could be sustainable.
After arrival 150...
Year 1: 150 woman give birth to 150 children. Population 299.
Year 2: 150 woman give birth to 150 children. Population 447.
Year 3: 150 woman give birth to 150 children. Population 595... (you get the point)
(side note: tweaking the spreadsheet for this is interesting.)
The point being: If someone is not paying attention - and walks into the street, engine noise (or lack of it) is not going to make a lot of difference, only an excuse for lawyers after the fact. (He knew his car was quite -- he should have watched out for that pedestrian!)
-- If my gas powered car would let me walk away after this type of incident -- I would buy that car again. Oh, wait...
In Short: If you try to stop harassment / vandalism on your web site; a TRO can be placed against YOU (the owner of the web site) by the perpetrator for reading their their message of hate?!?
Note: I must leave out a lot of key details in public forum; I don't want to go to jail before I can finish my appeal. Also — when it comes to a TRO, the other party can continue it for the rest of your life. (Oh, you want a job??)"
