Bullshit. I tried installing the latest Ubuntu on my machine the other day and it doesn't seem to like my motherboard. At least I think it's my motherboard. Or my BIOS. Or something. Anyway you are clearly lying. Oh and if you do manage to get it installed, you are left to search for drivers and utilities and to edit conf files for even the most basic functions like say multi-monitor support whereas with windows this is maybe 3 mouse clicks away.
"Linux works out of the box in the same way that MacOS or Windows does."
"Luekemia is not cancer of white blood cells, it's cancer of red blood cells. Lymphoma is cancer of white blood cells." ROFL. Look it up. There are 7 types of leukemia, only one of them has to do with the red blood cell line. Lymphoma is another kettle of fish altogether.
But that's great news because you don't want to outlive your money anyway. Anyway they mention the telomeres in white blood cells. Would be nice to see a corresponding increase in leukemia. As for 4.6 years of "biological aging" I take it they arrived at this number by extrapolating data from lab results - not necessarily true.
So you mean the rich get richer because since they own the capital, labor and production and there's less of it to go around, then people will pay more for it. And the poor get poorer because since there are plenty of poor offering exactly the same man hours, the cost of labor is relatively less? How is this different from the status quo? If I was in charge why the hell would I want to grow production at exactly the same rate (or more) than population growth? I want my things to be scarce. I think real economics might not work exactly the way you think it does, when government and special interests get involved in the market.
Public image or greed? I'm betting on greed. I mean it's "cheap" at $500 now, it was at over $1000 a few weeks ago. I'll go all in and I'll double my money again soon... any day now. Guys?
"This time it's different!"
And we need growth because? Growth is sustainable forever right? How about you think about things instead of just parroting them? Those who benefit from growth are governments and monopolies, because then they can increase their budgets or offset future losses without having to do anything at all. It's the low hanging fruit and that is all it is. One day, you run out of easy fruit and have to do work. Debauching the entire system in order to fool yourself that there is more easy fruit will soon bring the whole tree down on top of you. We are fast approaching population sizes and technological levels where exponential growth is no longer possible (or even desired). Why should our economics not reflect this?
Should review the meaning of the word. A re-release is hardly a "debut".
That's not what I mean - I mean about the fact that nothing changes (people pool their resources into 3rd parties giving them power when they really don't have to). Look at google. Google probably isn't the best search engine anymore. It certainly isn't the only one. But absolutely everyone uses Google because they're too lazy to stay on top of research and search engine trends. And when Google brings out a new service, it is instantly adopted (good or bad), because, well, it's google. For example why the hell do I keep coming back to slashdot? Inertia. It's the same shit.
Because the problem never was the currency, the problem is with human beings and their behavior.
He obviously thinks a "currency" whose actual value against other currencies regularly swings 100% or more in a day is useful. Frankly I want to hear about the guy who sank money into Bitcoin ATMs and how he's doing at the moment...
Both safe and anonymous! lol
How about you review what ad hominem actually means and then get back to us? I'll be glad to teach you but we first need a formal agreement as my daily rates are quite expensive.
I use it to keep in touch with my daughters overseas - free SMS. That's all going to change now though Zuckerberg can go fuck himself.
Why should I respect stupidity and willful ignorance? Because that is what religion is. ALL religion.
