So... you're in favor of this sort of thing? I can't quite figure out what you're upset about. Do you even know?
Maybe I'm a simpleton, but the one page letter linked to seems to suggest fairly explicitly that NASA was selling the fuel at "full cost" not at any kind of loss, and therefore the claim in the article that tax payers are somehow out of pocket is a load of crap. Please do correct me if I'm wrong.
Star Trek's Data is poor planning. Why make it want to be something it isn't? Don't we have enough body issues of our own without giving them tour computers?
I'm no expert on Star Trek so I may well get crucified for this, but I thought the story went that the first attempt - Lore - was fully aware that he was superior to humans in every way, and turned out to be a complete and utter bastard. So, they went back to the drawing board and made a new android - Data - that believed being human was awesome (and by extension that he was ultimately inferior).
In other words, you better make damn sure your hyper-intelligent robot has some sort of hardwired mental failsafe in place before you turn it on, or it'll take about 0.01 nanoseconds to figure out it doesn't need us and it sure as hell doesn't need to do what you tell it.
Or perhaps he could predict that his next prediction would not come true and we'd all vanish in a puff of logic.
An innovative mod.
I'm not sure you know what the word 'culmination' means.
Even if you accept the dubious notion that breedig is a good idea, your polluting of the gene pool with aggressive nutcases certainly won't improve things.
Depends on your point of view. The GOP needs those votes.
No, it isn't. IANAL, however I believe defamation is legally defined as untrue statements that harm public perception of a person or business. If your statements are true, they are therefore by definition not libelous.
Laws affect everyone.
Ha! Good one.
If you don't like what people say on Twitter. Don't go on Twitter. Simple as that.
I'm going to stand outside your house, then when you leave, I'm going to punch you in the face. Then, as you lie bleeding on the pavement, I'm going to say, "Well, if you don't like what people do out here, stay indoors. Simple as that."
I suggest you refer those pedants to Carlin; he'll certainly listen to criticism.
I doubt it, he's been dead for five years.
Nobody is really competent in this game.
Certainly not comprehensively so. EVE is just too big and too complex, and even the various roles that divide PvP combat are diverse enough that skill at one doesn't necessarily mean skill at another. Then you've got trading, industry, wormhole exploration, lowsec piracy, the list is massive. It is definitely possible to become competent in some things, it isn't really feasible to be good at everything.
In EVE you're the captain, not the helmsman. If you're looking to wiggle your joystick, I'd recommend the Freespace series.
Honestly, with this latest policy one has to wonder what in the world the UK is cumming to.
