I was afraid we would have skylake ultrabook chips before broadwell desktop. This was a close call.
64 bits should be enough for anybody
Yes, and 80bit floating point gives you exactly 64 significant bits
Eventually, it all must end.
Prove it. What's to say we don't figure out a way to harness cosmic expansion or the other 90% of the universe's energy in the vacuum and create a pocket dimension that traverses a Kerr black hole so that we wave to ourselves leaving before we enter the event horizon in an infinite loop?
Prove (mem)Brane theory is wrong, and we don't discover that dark matter is simply the universe next-door some number of us will be able to hop to, perhaps by constructing duplicates in the neighboring universes, and thus propagating across the megaverse (or true universe, since the brane world would then be considered the universal encapsulation medium).
For fuck's sake we haven't even figured out what happens at the event horizon of a black hole, let alone the singularity. For all we know every single galaxy has a super massive gateway to another universe at its center.
I'm not saying that the heat death won't end all intelligent life in this universe, just that it might not.
You prove any of your makebelieve theories, or find any shred of evidence for them. This is science not religion, you can't just make up your own bullshit and then expect people to take it serious. You need evidence for your theories, otherwise they are just fiction.
Schadenfreude is the best freude.
Certainly, and if you believe anything printed in the Bild (not a newspaper btw. but a picture-book/tabloid), you deserve nothing but Schadenfreude.
and sounds based along the same lines of an individual can't ignore a law even if they think it will (at some point) be deemed unconstitutional. So Cisco should have moved to have the patent revoked prior to making use of it rather than infringe and then try after (if at all).
Yes you can, and you have to. If there are two laws that contradict each other you have to decide which one to follow. If one of the two laws happens to be the constitution, that is an easy choice. Beware though that a lot of people thinks the constitution says a lot more specific things than it really does.
IMO, this shouldn't be up to governments. They should act as a source of trusted advice, at best. The idea that the FDA might have killed more people than it's saved (by delaying the use of medicines that were later found to be safe and effective) is an interesting one, though I can't remember if it's ever actually been proven or is just some libertarian meme.
In other words, you are completely insane!
Saying it shouldn't be up to the goverment is saying anything should be allowed, so let in the lead paint. Surely the free market would never feed our children poison. It is not like they haven't done in numerous times before and continues to do so in counties with less regulation.
Well. Good luck with running a test feeding suspected toxics to human test subjects. While the scientific way it is not how we do medical research since Mengele.
So you are advocating allowing untested chemicals in our food, and only ban it once people are dying?
Well. Fuck you!
"Soverign debt is not like personal debt!"
As Dick Cheney famously said on the eve of the Iraq War, "Deficits don't matter".
He said that because sovereign debt really isn't like personal debt when the sovereign debt is in a convertible fiat currency. Because the difference between you and a nation is the power to issue currency. Do you know how many countries have ever actually paid off their debt? Take a guess.
The IMF is like a loan shark. They don't want countries to pay off their debts. They want countries to service their debts until such time as they can burn it down for the insurance (CDO) money.
What you are using a Dick quote as something other than a joke? What are you, a moron?
