Exactly which is why the GP's point is just as valid as any in base 10 or base 2. Its an arbitrary point of reference.
Despite that being a hoax, biblical pi is about the same as pi itself once you realize the wall of the bowl had thickness to it
Maybe they're just fucking idiots, with an IT department that either is utterly inept or had been so marginalized by MBA morons and sociopaths.
Governor Christie is just concerned about the changes in traffic patterns that would be triggered by allowing electric cars to enter the state's vehicle markets unimpeded. Christie has a vision for the future of New Jersey and it is deeply important to him that municipal leaders across the state share his enthusiasm and goals. Enforcement along these lines would be impeded. Specifically, if the governor were to block off lanes to a bridge within a mayor's district, and everyone was driving electric cars, the smog wouldn't be as good for intimidating or disciplining the mayor. Clearly the traffic issues need more study.
Only if you ignore all the computers and calculators from befor electronics. Yes, i mean the people that used to fill calculation rooms and compute complexed math problems for sales drones, business processes, and loan officers.
Its not like the term computer was born in the 70s.
Not really. It would be common to say on march 3rd 1980 something happened. Its more condensed then saying on the 3rd of march, 1980 something happened.
Liar, you don't have a girlfriend and even if you did, i specifically heard you say "if i cannot fry it, i aint eating it" just the other day.
Most phones except for the American Company Apple uses a Micro USB.
Oh, please -- put down the flag.
As an American Apple user, I hate the fact that Apple doesn't use the same charger / data cable as everyone else and that, worse, my iPhone 5 isn't even compatible with my iPhone 3 charger. It's an overpriced, short POS that has a pointless chip in it to prevent third party cables from working properly. It's also not water-resistant (which is great in case you accidentally drop the end of it into a glass of water on your desk). All in all, Apple's new charger has significantly worsened my enjoyment of the phone.
So, I'm all for standardization on something nearly everyone else has agreed is sane. Apple gets no free pass for being American with me.
Why do they think this is a matter for governments to decide?
Same reason each country has a standard railroad track, a standard power outlet, etc. Letting industries decide on mutually incompatible standards largely serves to lock in consumers and also creates great inefficiencies in the economy due to incompatbility. Standardization would allow business like cafes & airports to offer charging solutions that fit all their customers, and it would produce less physical waste.
You mean like when NYC cops "professionally" trash the 4th Amendment rights of hundreds of thousands of people by feeling them up for no reason?
Who do you guys even think you're kidding here? When was the last time you heard of a LEO held in contempt of court for perjury or falsifying evidence, much less charged by a DA, much less convicted? The cops that murdered Kelly Thomas by bashing his head in as he screamed for help from his father were just let off scott free. You have to have something as egregious as a cop shooting a handcuffed man lying facedown on the pavement, on fucking video, before they serve time. And even then, they serve less time than a football player who shot himself in the leg.
So again, who do you even think you're kidding here, Slick? Try and tell us with a straight face that if you give a group of people a huge amount of authority, with next to zero accountability, that their authority wont be abused on a constant basis.
Where do Zuckerberg and Ellison fit into this Lucasian demonology?
I'll ignore your "all cops are perjurers" tirade.
You mean you're going to ignore anything that interferes with your worship of authority. When cops dare to actually enforce the law against fellow cops, they get stalked and harassed.
It's almost like both sides benefit from there being a camera on them.
It's almost like you don't know that Cops has been on the air for 25 years. Whether the person is innocent and being hassled by power tripping cops, or an actual "bad guy" worrying about going to jail for the meth stashed in his trunk, the very last thing on their minds is whether or not they're on video.
For various medical reasons, not every child can have particular vaccines, so these children are put at risk when herd immunity is compromised.
