Look at the very title of this submission. The "Missing Millions" are a reference to money, not Bitcoin.
That pretty much sums up Bitcoin and how it doesn't stand on its own.
I guess it would depend on the reason for showing it. I think parents should show and explain porn to their children before they inevitably get hold of it with no-one to explain. I'd rather them know that they're not to expect the monster penises they see in porn, and nor do most women really want said monster penises jammed up their rectum, and that it's perfectly fine to not act like the women in porn.
But showing porn to children in order to turn them or yourself on seems wrong.
You can paint it yellow, but it's still a really-short bus. That might make sense for very low-density areas, but I was surprised when I needed to hire a school bus for a Scout event last year that the newer full-sized buses actually get pretty amazing mileage. At 10-15 MPG, it's terrible for a car, but when you're carrying 60+ people, that's fantastic. Especially considering you can still buy a pickup truck that gets similar mileage. I was expecting the answer to come back at "7MPG highway" or something more proportional to automotive mileage.
Kudos to the anonymous mechanical engineers who design these things. I suspect it would be really hard to build a full-sized EV bus that used less total fuel, considering the transmission and charging losses, and the fuel equivalence for the additional wealth needed to purchase such a thing.
When it comes to cases of moral, juries are worse than worthless. No one will stand up defending the rights of a potential sexual predator, even if probably innocent. Whether there's actual guilt or not, the jurors are under a tremendous social pressure to not appear to defend child pornography.
I am fairly certain that lawyers strongly recommend that defendants should do pretty much anything to avoid a jury trial, even if innocent. Because they will be found guilty.
Bitcoin can't and won't survive without regulation, and all (most) countries have said they won't, so... Many a fool and his money shall soon part. ; ) it'll be interesting to watch. 500 million dollars go missing, and the funny thing is governments don't really seem to care that anti-government investors lost their ass. LOL
What's important to realize is that the dollars won't go missing. They're still around - they have just changed hands. And that seems to be the real purpose of Bitcoin - have real money change hand, and mostly to the early adopters and those who get out in time.
In itself, bitcoins have no value. The only value comes from what other values people exchange bitcoins for. It's a parasite economy that depends on non-bitcoin money for backing.
And it's irrelevant. Can we forget it soon, like we've forgotten other ponzi/pyramid/tulip schemes? It's not worth mentioning - let fools and crooks shift real money around between themselves. The losers will deserve it, and while the winners don't, they're not worth losing sleep over.
Do I need a NOTAM to throw a frisbee, or fly a kite? And what magically happens to turn a 5 foot wide foam glider from an unregulated toy into a regulated "aircraft" because it was used commercially. Did it suddenly become more dangerous because the footage was going to be sold commercially, and if so... how did it know?/I
Because money, so you don't have any right to self-determination or a making a living.
Often the audience gets the slides to read on their own later, as reference.
That would be an acceptable reason for cramming lots of text onto a slide. But in the 20 or so times that I've had the misfortune to be in a PowerPoint audience, and we didn't have time to read all the text, we never got a copy of the slides.
The audience should, in a good presentation, be listening and not reading.
Agreed -- which is a reason to keep the amount of text in your slides to a minimum.
Fair point - I guess I should have said "the general area where Menlo Park and EPA are, that's there's not a great name for collectively" is mid-gentrification. Maybe we should call the area "Ravenswood", mostly because it sounds cool.
Okay... fine... but that's entirely theoretical.
Right, like all of science.
No one has actually found dark matter... as in put it under a microscope or touched it
Right, like all of cosmology.
There's solid evidence for the existence of dark matter - it's composition remains a mystery as early hypotheses aren't panning out.
What I don't get is why anyone would think Dark Matter would form layers above and below the galactic disk. Hard to see why the distribution about the galaxy would be anything but spherical.
Sure, all you have to do is make numerically accurate predictions of future observations, how hard can that be? Or failing that, just be a String Theorist
Everything is science is "theoretical", that doesn't mean it's unlikely to be true.
Dark matter explains both galaxy rotation and the behavior of the early universe quite well. Until the CMBR data, dark matter was just one hypothesis among many for galaxy rotation, but only dark matter explained the observed pattern of mass distribution when the universe cooled enough to become transparent for the first time. And the numbers matched to a couple of significant digits, not in some hand-wavey way.
What dark matter is made of is still an open question, but it's pretty clear that about 4/5ths of the matter in the universe is dark.
Yeah, but it's about moving the Overton window. As the democratic state becomes weaker, private businesses take over a governing role. Before you had to bribe - now you just pay directly for cops.
That's the real story here. And Menlo Park used to be quite the bad neighborhood, so with Cali government falling apart it would be a disturbing development if this meant that you have to hire your own police officer if you want police protection. But I think that's sensationalized - Menlo Park is already mid-gentrification, already has a very high police presence. It's just not the case here that Facebook needed to pay the cops just to do their job.
There's more here than meets the eye. FB certainly could have hired off-duty police officers as security guards for cheaper. It's either some stunt by FB, or a blatant shakedown by the local PD (nice campus you've got there
