I know that was a joke, but juniper trees can easily live over 500 years and 1,000 year old trees have been found. It's easy to find 200 year old juniper trees.
A theory that's been around since the 1800s is still around!
At best it's a couple of dozen people working in the back office and some techs to walk around and monitor the automated plant.
A quick look at Wikipedia says Tesla had 10,000 employees in November of 2014 and SpaceX had 3,500 employees in April of 2015.
You didn't even bother with that much fact checking about what you 'know', though, did you. Your entire post is a demonstration of idiocy in action.
If people making $30,000 a year knew they paid over $1000 a month in taxes
They don't. A single person making $30,000 with no deductions beyond the standard deduction would pay $2,520 for 2014. That's $210 a month, not $1,000.
But hey... don't let facts get in the way of your ideology, right?
Most 11 year olds lack the cognitive functions to write novels, too, but that doesn't mean we don't teach them to write.
The point of teaching computer programming is not to make every child a computer programmer any more than the point of a biology class is to make every child into a biologist.
WHAT?! What a corruption of the traditions of our country's musical heritage. Give me the organic groups-- the Monkees, Menudo, One Direction, O-Town, the Backstreet Boys, NKOB, the Spice Girls.. you know, talented musicians who found each other and came together through the music.
You might notice that most of the artists you named here were from long ago.
You might notice that all of the artists named were bands put together by music companies.
You might also notice a whooshing sound.
Because there's absolutely no chance that the NSA would ever think to hijack a connection to any other source of apps beyond Google's store?
They have 6 million customers and revenue of about 8 billion dollars a year.
You have quite an odd definition of "small".
And he's talking about an IT person who updates firmware on pumps at a gas station. Who are the users who are using those pumps? The customers buying gas.
The only problem here is your lack of comprehension.
The first comment in this thread:
OP said "day to day" activities. He's updating one pump at a time. What are the other pumps doing? Dispensing gasoline. To update all 16 pumps at once would render all 16 pumps out of service for half an hour. That is simply unacceptable for the station. They would not want to just shut everything down and eliminate a half-hour's worth of revenue from 15 pumps just so OP is not inconvenienced.
The IT is the guy updating the pumps. The users are the customers using the pumps to get gas.
Somebody either didn't read or didn't comprehend the previous posts in the thread they're posting in.
And somebody doesn't understand that the 'users' in this case are customers who will leave and go elsewhere to fill up if all the pumps are shut down. Explaining to management that they're losing revenue because you don't want to upgrade the pumps one at a time is sure to go over well.
Only a chicken can make an egg. Your move.
Incorrect. The first egg that produced a chicken was laid by the evolutionary ancestor of the chicken.
No, the Film Consortium guy is the one implying that by suggesting that every download should have gotten a CAS notice. The goal is, as always, to misconstrue the numbers to suggest that piracy is a huge problem (20% of the US population pirating movies is scarier than 0.8% of the global population).
The person you responded to is simply reacting with disbelief that at the Film Consortium guy's idiotic statement.
