With enough morphine, it feels really good.
We all contemplated suicide
We hoped for euthanasia
We were lulled into believing
Morphine dispelled pain
Rather than making it tangible
Like a mad Disney cartoon
Transforming itself into
Every conceivable nightmare
Derek Jarman, Blue
I guess it's good to have two systems. This can provide redundancy and improve reliability.
The difference in accuracy between just using GPS and a combination of GPS and GLONASS is gigantic, especially on places with limited view on the sky (canyons, but also cities). I used an Garmin etrex on a hike this summer, and I can clearly see in the recorded path were I switched from GPS + GLONASS to GPS and back again (I did this to save the batteries before I found spare batteries). It is the difference between right-on-track and wrong-side-of-the-valley.
I set it to "classic" which goes a significant way to fixing the problem (gets rid of the giant images), but the title text is still gigantic and there's a lot of unnecessary white space and margins.
And all the body text - where all the frikkin content is - is smaller and thinner, and thus harder to read. Helloooooo designers, even heard about legibility? You do know that that is something you can actually measure, and not just an opinion?
And at least Putin is honest about his intentions, instead of saying one thing to get elected and doing the exact opposite afterwards.
It's pretty sad when the American government makes likes of Vladimir Putin look like a "good guy".
No matter how you dislike the American government, at least American lawyers do not die in Prison, and journalists do not get shot. If you complain about having your basics rights violated within the USA, you have evidently never travelled abroad.
One thing I've noticed since switching to a Windows tablet is how lousy the onscreen keyboard is. [...snip...] The Windows onscreen keyboards have none of that. What's more, they seem wildly inaccurate
You may find it comforting that the keyboard on an iPad sucks too. Even with my short stubby fingers I have less problems typing on an iPhone than on an iPad. As soon as typing on the iPad reaches a certain speed, characters get dropped out (characters that, frustratingly, gave visual feedback on on the onscreen keyboard). And I *hate* having to dive 2 keyboards deep to reach the common math symbols.
This, here, is why Athiests [sic] are the least liked segment of America. You seem incapable of discussing your lack of faith without insulting those of us with faith in the Divine. You tell us that belief in God (or Gods) is foolishness.
So it is worse to call somebody a fool than to threaten them with eternal damnation, or torture in hell? Or reincarnation as a dog? Most religions I know of do not speak to kindly of non-believers. And some even follow that up with actions.
I am not a fool, nor do I insult you for your lack of faith.
Just as me, you _think_ you're not a fool (Please keep reading to the last paragraph - more explanation there). And I am sorry if you feel insulted, but I *really* can't take the belief in god any more serious than the belief in gnomes.
I look at the complex interplay of the physical laws of our universe and the infinitismal chance that they would all align with the requisite exactitude to create the necessary conditions for the devlopment of intelligent life and see that as evidence of some Divinity which has, at the very least, set this all in motion.
Elementary probability theory: the change of something happening is always 1 after it happened. The chance of my mom meeting my dad is 1, because if they hadn't, I wouldn't be here to calculate the chance. The chance of having rolled any series of dice is 1, but the chance of rolling the same series again is 1/6 * 1/6 etc.
If that makes me a fool, then a good number of humanities best and brightest are also fools.
I totally agree! There a lot people a lot smarter and better than me that are fools. That is because a certain level of foolishness is needed to operate properly, to motivate yourself and others, etc. The Dutch writer Matthijs van Boxsel turned the need for foolishness (or as he calls it, stupidity) into a lifelong study. An English translation of his magnum opus is available on Amazon.
