Of course most people hate him.
By the way, "lack of distance" has been considered a feature, not a bug, for decades. The current US FM band (87.5-107.9 mHz) was chosen* to minimize "skip" transmission on the earlier, lower, band. This prevents stations from interfering as easily, and thus increases the number of stations permissible in a particular local listening area. There are still "clear channel" 50,000 watt AM stations that occupy exclusive frequencies for the entire country - they were trying to avoid that.
*partly - the other part was marginally a conspiracy to put Howard Armstrong's nascent FM network out of business by making the frequencies it operated on illegal. However, in fact, the lower frequency 42-49 mHz band *did* have the tendency to skip sometimes, and with the superior signal to noise ratio of wideband FM, could sometimes be clearly be heard at remarkable distances - or interfere with local stations at remarkable distances.
Right. Just let people die of curable disases to avoid antibiotic resistance.
I think he is saying the field is shit and should be disregarded.
It might be an ocean of liquid hydrogen. Hydrogen freezes at about -430F (around -260 C for foreigners), which sounds like it could be about in the ballpark.
This appears to be an internet show, not a TV show, right?
But of course, if you dismiss climate models, there is *no evidence at all* for global warming. Just say it a religious or political movement and be done with it.
Right, maybe we should burn him at the stake for heresy!
You true believers have absolutely no idea how foolish you come across.
Oh, sure, who doesn't like to hear this?Between this, and "metric system is better lectures" makes me feel small. Almost makes me overlook that fact that none of these wise-asses would exist, except for us.
In fact, many cases of Hitler references trivialize the almost inconceivable magnitude of the evil of the 3rd reich. But some cases - the Khmer Rouge or ISIS, for example - it really is appropriate. Yet Godwin is used to stifle the discussion. I think in that sense it has been a disservice.
If I was hiring programmers, I would be very inclined to hire real engineers (of any stripe) than degreed "computer scientists"
I have used Macs since they existed, and I never once saw the Sad Mac, aside from looking it up, or seeing it in documentation. The spinning beach ball was also exceptionally rare until OS X came along, now you do see that one occasionally.
On "IBM machines" AKA DOS machines , I have seen xxx failed, Abort, Retry, Fail? almost incessantly. Not artistic, not particular memorable, aside from being drilled into one's head like "Polly Want a Cracker?" is for parrots.
"He got so wasted he SHORTED OUT!!. I want to party with that dude!"
"SPRING BREAK, YEAH!!!!"[/frat boy]
What are you talking about? Pseudo-scientific bullshit it what
I thought it was really cool in 1970 when I saw it in Popular Mechanics.
