Floating at sea nuke plants? Fukushima came pretty damn close, eh? Not to mention all those nuke subs and carriers. Maglev trains are out there. Some of them even run through tubes (and/or chunnels). And synthetic meet? Kids these days just call it "social networking."
There were hovering bikes in ET. Those were very similar to the Omicronians' hovering bikes in Futurama - powered by love. Don't think that would work for the US Military.
The sponge may have been removed from market before this daughter was conceived. Sadly, it's probably also too late for "get an abortion."
Since you mentioned PETA, I'll toss in the idea that your local no-kill shelter and animal rescue groups are often worthy recipients, as well. Full of volunteer opportunities, too, for us soft hearts with more time than money.
"We're also seeing initiatives to support Docker containers on Windows"
Not exactly. What you're seeing is an initiative to support docker-for-windows containers on windows. They're fragmenting docker, not seeking interoperability.
I think it will be the MS cli interface helper, sshclippy. "It looks like you're trying to ssh into a remote server. Wouldn't you like to use RDP instead?"
jump into a mulcher to become perlite.
They don't like us oldsters in this biz.
"How many of them have actually licked a cray?"
I don't know if that's a typo or some old-fashioned slang for what people used to do with HPCs. But unless I had stumbled into a job involving cluster computing, I probably never would have seen (licked?) any ridiculously expensive Mellanox infiniband gear, so I'm not sure that the nameplates on the hardware you work with is such a good metric of one's capabilities.
K-12 means kindergarten through the end of high school (12th grade) in the US.
This program is just another example of "who cares about the boys who are lagging behind in most other aspects of education, the girls are lagging behind in this one area and THAT INJUSTICE MUST BE FIXED NOW!"
Parents of boys would do well to home school, or move to a country where a student's worth is not measured solely by the structure of their chromosomes.
So this is what passes for self-flaggelation these days?
"Assad would be no less cruel if he were atheist or christian"
Religion does not factor into Assad's cruelty - he's a DENTIST!
Simple solution to thwart those who would emotionalize the debate in the manner you suggest - hold the debate on a cross-country flight to Orlando.
Shimon Peres and Arafat should have split an award. They both (ultimately) worked towards peace in a situation where peace was (and remains) a pipe dream.
Gandhi clearly should have gotten a peace prize.
This underscores the fact that there is a flaw in the decision process.
While I share your exasperation at the pervasive feminSJW tilt slashdot has undergone recently, I have to point out that in the US, usage of the name "Kim" still skews heavily to the female gender.
Obama's ludicrous Peace prize was more jarring to your conscience than Henry Kissinger's? Something isn't right here. You're either very young and unaware of the dubious history of this prize, or you have personal issues that cloud your judgment of the inanity of obviously stupid Nobel awards.
