In colIege, I knew a girl who had TWO of these! Woo, mama! She helped me with my Calculus, alright....
I know someone who works on this kind of stuff.
He works on theme parks, recently getting hired (within his company) to fix mistakes and problems with them, in Dubai and the surrounding area. His take is repeatedly that they don't know how to do quality-control there. Their projects SOUND amazing, but they skimp on the essentials and end up with disastrous results much of the time. He believes this is a mess waiting to happen, given the area's track record, but isn't involved in the project.
No, really, what the heck is their deal? If I get only 7 hours of sleep for more than 2-3 days, I start turning into an ornery, unfocused, weak, idiot zombie who's as likely to pour a cup of coffee into his lap as into the mug!
I don't understand how people do it.
I knew Sting concert tickets had gotten expensive, but this?
So they want to turn all social media into an even more passive-aggressive wasteland than much of it already is?
Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom hasn't come up yet?
Coming to terms with what it might be to actually be human... printing ourselves and transferring a back-up to that body...
what does that mean? will consciousness go with it?
To me, consciousness is probably just an electronic current that holds us to our memory. The terrifying moment, even if I could replicate myself elsewhere, is,"What happens when I sever that connection and transfer over/" will I just die and a perfect copy keeps living on just as I was a moment ago, or do I go with it? *could anyone tell*? It is the stuff not just of the fear of death, but no one ever knowing that makes it a nightmare.
Sorry to post so dark... nice weather, huh?
yeah, but this is the internet. how much that you actually read really happens?
people are anonymous, they tend to exaggerate.
For what reasons will it fail, then, would you say?
I was a very wee lad and only remember part of the Hoth scene in the theater... when I promptly became sick and threw up, missing the rest of the movie
Let's stop calling them that long, euphemistic word: Super rich.
Let's call them what they are: Nobility.
Frame the language, frame the debate.
Really? ARE people voting for tax cuts for the rich?
Please, show me where they are doing this. Evidence.
Yes, it's kind of rhetorical. People are not voting for this. It is not the People's fault, that is the point of the article. The point is that the rich are voting for tax cuts on the rich.
Also, they aren't. Here in California the rich just got shit-smacked with a nice extra tax if they make over 250K a year (fairly common here).
This is going to be the downfall of netflix. Now that comcast knows they can extract money from Netflix they're going to keep squeezing them harder and harder.
Or ants and cricket, or plants, or politicians...
It's a lost word in our language, basically, but they call the rebound "contrecoup"
