Well, is he using metric skies?
I am embarrassed to say that I stared at the screen for some minutes before realizing that "Eveready Rabbit" was not some cutsie release name for the latest Slackware release.
We casually accept tyranny from our employer that we would never accept from our government. And in this economy, it is not practical to abandon an employer over our rights because (a) other employers are just as bad, and (b) they ain't hiring.
Of course it runs netBSD.
Leave programming to the programmers. If you want to get science done, use LabView.
Living in Houston is like living in a dog's mouth. Hot, wet, and smelly.
It is the armpit of Texas.
This one never gets old
Wake up pspahn. The matrix has you.
And that makes it better? Sounds like more rent seeking.
By inspection, Ft. Worth is above and to the left of the centroid of the state. Therefore Northeast Texas.
Okay. I'll bite. Where is the inflation?
. The key here is not to fight fracking, but to fight to keep all the processes associated with well drilling within the rules of existing environmental regulations.
Fine. Except fracking has been specifically excluded from the current EPA regulations regarding drilling and contaminated groundwater (thanks, Cheney!).
The way I see it, we just need to shave one of those neutrons off. Like, say, with another neutron. What could possibly go wrong?
The owners will profit even more.
Unless we move to more consolidation and monopoly, I don't see why this would be the case. Robotic equipment doesn't magically remove competition - why should profit margins go up? If COGS go down, so will prices - not profits. Walmart will only be a single-digit percentage point profitable no matter what they do with robots.
You are missing the point. With increased automation, the cost of production is moving from a labor cost to a capital cost. So the profits going to the owner said capital are not necessarily increasing, but they are definitely increasing when compared to the falling profit going to labor. Which is pretty cool if you happen to be capital. And kinda sucks if you happen to be labor.
Is it simply cascading chemical reactions?
