Do charlatans have a right to stir up fear to enrich themselves via books and useless substitutes, with no evidence of a problem whatsoever and tons of evidence in safety?

Pardon me, I have to go buy gluten-free cheeseburger buns. It must be a valid concern, right? Also, I am getting a vaccine without thimerosol or adjuvants, whew!

I'm sorry but when your entire facebook feed consists of anti-Obama trolling, that isn't being judgmental. That's making a conscious decision you don't want horrid people like that working at your company.

But if this happened...

The goal of being able to solve NP-hard or NP-Complete problems with quantum computers is similar to being able to travel to the moon, mars or deeper into space with rockets.

That's mechanical use of keyboard, but you're also gonna need a phrase anyzer and commonizer. Grammar and phrases used by writers should be unique enough to identify the same anonymous writers on different sites, at least over the long run.

If you can tie a controversial anon to a known account like facebook, you can then go all SJW on him, outing them to their employer and getting them fired.

I am less concerned about racist assholes than more general political opinions and so on.

This forum, in spite of the leftward shift in recent years ("What in god's name does this or that story have to do witb News for Nerds???") is somewhat balanced.

On another I read, the vast majority are walking around with EFB, Erections For Bernie, so long lasting and firm they're well past the point they "should seek medical care".

This tech exists already and only needs polishing. Auto-tracking and aiming. That will continue to be developed regardless. Slap it on a mobile Google car bought at the dealer, give it a route, and let 'er go!

Having humans decide who gets killed by the robot, as opposed to the robot deciding, is an added feature, and thus disposable to core dancing bear functionality.

For it to work it has to be banned by international law so rogue states can be punished. But it is trivial with soon-to-exist pieces.

The reward of a thing well done is to have done it. -- Emerson
