The abrupt lack of sky does.
The problem isnt advertising. The problem is F***ing obnoxious advertising! FLASHFLASHFLASH HEY THING ITS HEY THING! Or, adservers that lag and wont let the site load. And when they do load, see above. So many flash adds that they crash a browser, or make it unworkable. obnoxious, grating, irritating ads. Id happily unblock adds..Its just when I do, I get ALL THAT again. No matter how long its been. Its like its 2000 still.
We'll be able to breed cows that give bacon.
...I wonder if someone following a kosher diet could eat that...
I often notice they seem to be going out of their way to go after this guy. Thats not in itself wrong, (though the "essentially a terrorist" part is wrong.) because thats kinda a big crime. But what gets to me, is that they do so much to get this guy...while completely ignoring the problems that were revealed in the leaks.
So getting violently slammed into the ground repeatedly by very large people can cause brain damage? The hell you say!
Bio weapons have been used for a long time too. Im not certain of the authenticity of the account, but I remember reading many times about mongols in the medieval era catapulted their plague-dead into a besieged city.
They are rather terrifying arent they? Know whats fun? When the anti-vacciners go all nuts and start talking about how its all done for profit, ask them their solutions. See how long it takes before you can get them to admit they directly profit from "alternative medicine" (quackery.) Its a shame they have scared idiots so heavily that they will ignore any of that. But if you can keep an idiot from slipping to thier side, at least we've achieved something. Every year the child-sized coffin industry stays down is a good year.
The problems are bigger than that. Theres no easy source of issue. For instance, we are overusing antibiotics. There is no quesiton there. But our bigger problems are with viral agents. And of course, prions. And good luck trying to explain to someone why Archaea are different from Bacteria. Theres also things people dont even realise theyre doing. Like, anti-bacterial hand gel. That is one of the worst ideas (at a consumer level) ever. Anything it doesnt kill is now immune to the damn gel and has no competition in its enviornment -- your skin. Have you been to a doctor in recent years? The last one i was at had "do not ask for antibiotics for your viral disease" posters. There are actually posters about this. Why a doctor cant just tell someone "no" is beyond me but... And we arent actively changing anything, I dont even know what you mean by that. When I got my (thankfully not antibiotic resistant) staph infection a year ago, no one told me it wasnt a big deal. But then, 40 skin ulcers (there were more; thats how many scars I have from them. not all formed scars.) in a 24 year old tends to be a big deal. So yes, these things will occur. And it will be bad. But will it be "300,000,000 dead in less than a century" bad, as is the case with smallpox? No. You know we have destroyed two viral agents thanks to our efforts. Thats two more than ever went away on their own...even if one is rinderpest. We either fight or die. And in a world with less than a days travel to anywhere on the globe, "Die" is easy.
I dont know why, but the image of the silly aliens making the translators say silly things as they attacked people came into my head. I mean, imagine if someone got access to it. They could replace Jupiter's definition with a series of cat pictures with oddly worded phrases attached. Or they could remove or change some number in some equaiton, or a couple of words, in a way that would be much harder to detect. Oh, sure right now its not that big a deal cause we still do have phyiscal copies... I dunno, I'm probably just paranoid. Its not like the corporations or any aspect of a government has ever just accidently lost very important information or forgot to ever set a password or literally lost computers full of sensitive information many many times now. Because if that were true, I'd be terrified.
Being a prodigy is not always a good thing. I'd be easily in those numbers, at least based on my ridiculously high standardized testing scores. But the world makes sense to me. Things have always worked in a way that is logical and fits together. So I got lazy. Whats the point of ever trying when you know you'll succeed before you even start? The complete destruction of our education system and pandering to the lowest, while taking advanced stuff from those hwo could use it is breaking everything.
Because theres nothing I like than waking up in the morning to see a new update which immediatly bricks my car. We all know its gonna happen. Its just a matter of time.
I wish more of them became 'nancies' as the OP wrote. Maybe once more in the US started doing it, those of us who actively enjoy it (mostly in the gay community) wont be stigmatized as much...although we do have that problem of being unassertive so your guess is as good as mine.
I play Pokemon Black and am dangerously in love with it. As anyone who plays this knows, theres a feature called the Dream World and Game Sync. If you change the time on your DS, OR play the game in another DS, it forces you to wait 24 hours before you can use game sync (and thus, Dream World) again. This literally caused a minor panic attack...
...Keep in mind, I have a major panic disorder. Things like the sun ("Its millions of miles away and is hot enough to BURN ME WTF!") can cause significant panic. So its not as pathetic as it may initially seem.
For some reason, god only knows what it is, ATI cards hated Simcity 3000. I cant even really explain this. the fastest mode, the one where you go because yuo dont want to watch each building construct peice by peice, is easily 100x slower than on an Nvidia card. of course, i wont be buying any new ones based on this. it just pisses me off.
Yeah thats a bit far dotn you think? I certainly dont recall Bush trying to repeal dont ask dont tell. Im not completely happy with Obama, of course not.. But I also havent been letting the 24/7 rightwing propaganda machine get to me. Clearly, some have. You. You have. Theres a LOT wrong, and a lot i dont agree with. But heres what I do agree with: Obama got Russia to agree to the biggest nuclear non-proliferation treaty in the history of nuclear weapons. He pushed for the repeal of DADT so people who wanted to serve could do so without fear, without having to effectively abandon their loved ones. That means more than you have recognized. Clearly. Because you see, if any group, anywhere, can be subject to blanket attacks simply because they are part of a group, then anyone can. Even you. As long as "rights" are something 'on the table' it may be yours next time. It may be you whos being told you better keep your head down or risk getting it cut off. Do I agree with Obama all the time? No. Still voted for him. Still gonna vote for him again. Because you see, the democratic party is the oldest and longest lasting political party in the US, for a reason: We dont immediatly take our ball and go home and demand purification when we disagree. From an outsiders perspective, it may look pointless. From our perspective? If everyone agreed all the time, youd just have another Bush. See what I did there? Stop pretending this is black and white. Even Pokemon Black and White was less Black and White than the world you seem to think exists. And that game is pretty damn black and white. Come back when you want to be a responsible member of society. Unlike the hatred constant directed at us, we will continue extending the olive branch, we want to forgive you. Even if you insist on smacking it down.
