Every element in the universe was created through fusion. It just starts with hydrogen and works its way up. I think hydrogen is also the easiest to get to fuse, but I'm not sure on that one.
I never thought I would ever have to say this but...
It needs to be so cheap and easy that there is no good reason not to have it done.
Yes, yes. It could be abused. But so can machetties (sp?).
While I agree that fighting malaria and other diseases is a worthy cause, if all those saved babies and children grow up to have 3-5 babies, which will likely also need to be saved, then the population will continue to skyrocket.
I have done research on this. The overall birthrate is actually steady, until some new medical advance reduces child mortality. Then it takes a couple of generations for people to stop having as many babies as their forebears did and all those, now not dead, people increase the birth rate. So, paradoxically, population rise is almost directly caused by medical advances. Therefore, we need a cheap and easy way for people to choose to stop having babies sooner rather than later.
And yes, we need to reduce the planet's population down to about one-billion if we have any hope of surviving as a species.
They need to rename the "Delete" button to "Memory Hole."
OneNote. Without it, I might as well just not have a computer at home.
Anyone who suggests Evernote has never actually used OneNote. It is the killer app that no one knows about.
I thought the whole point of Dr. Who was that the writers get to just make stuff up, no matter how implausible, and the fans get to spend the whole week finding ways to rationalize it all away. Then, next week, something implausible, compared to the previous implausibilities, occurs and the fans get to work even harder, rationalizing all that away and trying to force it all into some semblance of a continuous discontiguous narrative.
This gets repeated over and over in an exponentially increasing swirl of cognitive dissonance and rationalization until either: A) Said fan's head explodes, or B) Said fan becomes delusional, believing themselves to be a genius because he/she, and only he/she TRULY understands the hidden meaning of the show.
You guessed it. Not a fan.
It doesn't even have to be an ideological stance. It's a matter of processing costs. Let the "forgetees" pay a nominal processing cost, and I wouldn't have as much of a problem.
Believe me, I know Google has gone "Full Microsoft" but I still think the idea of forcing a search engine COMPANY to filter out undesireable results is the start of a very slippery slope.
This is ridiculous. If the content is still out there, then Google, and all other search engines should index it. I can see asking them to not cache it, but to use stro,g-arm tactics to FORCE them to actively filter it out of results is, to my mind, a violation of their freedom of speech. Which SHOULD trump the freedom to F up and then hide it from the public.
Google and MS and all the other search engines should just threaten to pull out of the EU en mass rather than abide by this rediculous law.
No. They built the planet to find out the question, to which the answer is 42.
It wouldn't surprise me if these forum members were just a few people hired by the education industrial complex (Pearson, et al) to intentionally spoil the experience for others.
So, I hope they aren't trying to patent too much of this idea. It's been prior art for 10 years. Here is a link to an archived version of my post: http://www.derkeiler.com/Newsg.... It is all I could find from my phone.
I don't mind them using the idea. I posted it publicly hoping someone would. But they can't claim to own the idea or prevent others from using it.
