They were actually mobile kitchens, and, given the rather poor nutritional status of the Iraqi military, it is not unreasonable to assume they represented WMDs.
Somebody has to say it
Of course, how you automatically judge merit is another matter....
You find me someone who will actually pay the $$$ that the journalists say vinyl is worth, and I'll flick on my 100 or so records. In the meantime, they're in boxes waiting for my daughter to sort out when I end up six foot under.
Back to 'Eat less and exercise', everyone. That's probably safer, anyhow.
Since then, picked up some goodies - "Republic of Rome', 'Pax Brittanica'.... hard to find face-to-face opponents these days so PBEM or video games.
But then there's the solitaires.. 'RAF', 'Carrier'...
What a shame that your glorious robots would never get to taste, touch, see, hear, or actually experience anything.
Good one - I'm here for you. Susan Blackmore's book on consciousness quotes the appreciation of qualia as a mark of consciousness. I can't see any machine ever enjoying a ham sandwich, or a beer. They can be programmed to respond as if they did, though.
We are completely and totally fucked as a species if we do not figure out how to live independently of Earth. That means manned spaceflights. That means colonization of the Moon, Mars, and possibly elsewhere. The sooner we begin this work the better chance our species has for survival. The trouble is getting our current anti-science government to believe it.
Totally agree. I can't comment on whether the government is anti-science - it's not my government - but I would also like to subscribe to your newsletter.
And, of course, good luck to the ground crew with Orion. May you be rewarded with success!
A catastrophic health problem can change your plans overnight, at any age. Throw in that the older you get, the more likely it is to happen
Faulty logic there. You might as well say "Youngsters are well known to do high-risk sports and hobbies, such as base-jumping, or swimming with sharks: employers can do the maths and will hire older staff that have survived these self-destructive years".
I've smoked one on a Weber charcoal grill. I used a smokenator, a piece of steel that acts as a shield between the meat and the hot coals used for indirect cooking. Turkey was very flavorful and moist. Between the weber grill and the smokenator, it's a minimum investment to try it out. Nowadays I just dry brine and spatchcock the bird. Good flavor, moist bird, minimum fuss.
I did one on my Weber once - a monster, wrapped in bacon, stuffed, etc...No smokenator (how can anyone do that to the English language...) but indirect cooking. End result was a good bird, but it cooked a helluva lot faster than the veggies we had to go alongside. Damn bbq...everything is either over or under.
you're right, that is a crazy dream because the ebola outbreak tracker shows that the number of new cases has been relatively stable (albeit noisy) for the last couple weeks. contrary to the summary, however, the tracker shows that ebola cases are doubling every 46 days, not 2-3 weeks.
Source is 'Wikipedia'. Hmmm. Be more inclined to take it seriously if it was sourced from WHO, or MSF, etc...
Side-effect of a UPS is that it smooths all these things out... oh, and surge protection too.
Too often these things just look like dick measuring contests. A childish waste of time. I don't really care if the chinese have the fastest machine so long as our systems are able to keep up with our needs.
Damn right, Who cares? You USans are good at some things, top in some, bad in others, crap at a few. Much like the rest of the world.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - the world owes you a debt for getting humans on the moon.
(On the other side of the coin... never understood why you folks have so many guns...)
This is 2014. The majority of nerds have more than one computer.
Heck, that's a prerequisite of membership.
But look on the bright side - nerddom also requires more than one operating system
Kittenman's law is fine. Pat pending.
