This could be any of us. We have no choice but to entrust companies with our intimate conversations: on email, on Facebook, by text and so on. We have no choice but to entrust the retailers that we use with our financial details. And we have little choice but to use cloud services such as iCloud and Google Docs.
Bullshit. There's always a choice. It's often less convenient, but that's a far cry from not having one.
It looked like a middling movie, but now it's the most talked about picture of the year. I bet they'll clean up on DVD sales.
Except that Sony has claimed they will not distribute it in any form.
On a dedicated path it is very slow, but with a dozen traffic lights to obey you can easily lose 15-20 minutes waiting at intersection.
But from what I've seen only 1 in 10 bicyclists in the city pays any attention to the traffic signals anyway, so does it really count?
...Not having any particular stake in this argument, are we quite sure that's Tyrell's intended meaning, something so mundane? I think Tyrell is more taking about stuff like this:
I have seen things you people wouldn't believe Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like [small cough] tears in rain. Time to die
...i.e., Roy's greatness and accomplishment as a person. At that point, Tyrell wants to sooth Roy and make him accept his place by calling him amazing. Simply saying "well, that's the cost of bein' so darn strong" conflicts with his next line: "And you have burned so very, very brightly, Roy."
These days, I write only for myself. But everyone I do a reading for says "Boy, that's interesting! Why don't you publish?". Then I explain.
There are so many alternative ways to publish today that you shouldn't let this stop you. Get your work out there and let the readers decide!
How do you write dialog, for example, between beings with digital RF implants instead of speech?
That one's easy. Everyone knows that you use italics!
I am glad you posted that. I am putting together a little project I call Distributed Integrated Scalable Array Database, DISArray. It will be a shardable web scale instantly consistent DB engine which will have kick ass performance and a Heisenberg query engine support by a look ahead design I have code named "Schroedinger".
This is going into my next system proposal to management.
But...but...where will we get future cops and politicians from, if there are no more government-indoctrinated violent and aggressive brain-damaged.individuals being turned out by schools?
The kids who were given the choice of jail or the marines are a likely source.
While soccer (football to the rest of the world) probably has less of a problem, it is still a potentially serious issue. Better suggest golf next time. Or Dungeon and Dragons.
You've obviously never seen me try to golf then. The only safe place is the middle of the fairway.
I just don't see why our elected officials should assist them at our expense.
Because reelection campaigns cost a lot of money these days.
Nope. Common carriers can be held repsonsible for turning a blind eye to illegal traffic.
Indictment != Conviction
