Yep but what people do understand is that anti-semitism was not abnormal for the time. It was very common for hotels, country clubs, and so on to be "restricted". Would he have supported the extermination camps? I really doubt it. As I said you need to look at everything he did. A lot of them were good and others are bad. but to throw out the good is just as wrong as ignoring the bad. What would Henry Ford be like if he was born in the 1960s instead of the 1860s? He might have been Elon Musk or Steve Jobs or maybe even better.
Actually history is not all that simple. Henry Ford also started paying his employees a living wage long before it was popular. In fact other industrialists hated him for raising wages.
Ford hated unions but actually paid his workers very well for the day. It was in 1935 that the problems with the Unions happened and Ford was getting up in years. It is a lot more complicated than you think http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H...
Of course Auto Workers Union revises their own history and has removed a lot of the influence of radical communists from the official history.
He also "interfered" with his workers lives and offered programs to help with "heavy drinking", gambling, and dead-beat dads. He got a lot of flack for these programs in the day as being too intrusive.
Henry Ford in the end was a great man but also a product of his day. Today he would be seen as racist and anti-semitic. In the early 1900s he was seen are a radical progressive. No man is all good or all bad.
Think about the word degrees. You have 360 degrees in a circle.
For practical use the unit is about half the size of the unit in celsius which give you finer granularity but not a ridiculous amount so the need for a decimal place is less common.
1 Everybody changes the world. Some good and some bad.
2. Musk is right now building a super expensive electric car for the rich. He is right now Mr. Royce he is not yet Henry Ford.
3. He is build rockets but so are several other companies. He is doing well at it but it is not like he has made spaceflight cost $10 a kilo yet.
Everyone can and should politely question things like this. What kind of almost religious zeal causes you to result to insults at such a simple statement. I happen to think that Musk is doing a lot of good things. Mars may be over ambitious but their is a very wise saying. If you never fail you never tried hard enough. You on the other hand have resorted to worship and adoration for the man. You attacked the none believers with insults and I doubt that you brought any light on the subject. You most certainly did not inform anyone. In other words you have failed to take an opportunity to make the world a better place.
No he is just dreaming big. I do question his statement that their would be no oil or natural gas. If mars had life it might be possible that oil and other hydrocarbons did form.
It is unlikely that they are around but impossible. If so we just need a lot of 02 and then burn baby burn! Mars needs CO2.
It is simply hard to get ride of a few centuries worth of knowledge.
In Britain you order a pint of beer.
If you give an inch they will take a mile.
In the US liters and quarts are still fighting it out. Soda is in liters milk in is quarts.
"I have a feeling any "conversion" would be about as difficult to handle as your cable company changing the channel lineup around. Perhaps a few weeks of grumbling, but eventually you get used to it."
No you are wrong.
I was in school in the 1970s when they made a big push for metric and it is still a pain. You have generations of people that are used to cups, quarts, pounds, ounces, miles, feet, inches, and yards. Just in the UK it would take decades if not longer to make people comfortable with those measurements. Even then they will keep using the old systems forever. An American football field will always be 100 yards. You have at least a century of cookbooks that use ounces and cups. You have homees full of 2x4s. The change would require every lumberyard to have both traditional as well as metric wood sizes. And so on.
Finally when you get to temperature Fahrenheit is the one that is more mathematically correct. 180 degrees between freezing and boiling makes a lot more sense than 100 degrees. The one issue with Fahrenheit is the zero point was set at the lowest temp they could generate at the time. Just change that to the freezing point of water and it would be very close to perfect. The units in C are just too big for common use IMHO.
I think you are going too far the other way. GIMP on windows and Linux are not bad at all. GIMP on OS/X is really hard to use probably because GTK for OSX really lags GTK for windows.
GIMP is good enough for a lot of people and it is much more powerful than photoshop elements.
If you need Photoshop then you need Photoshop. Gimp is a really powerful program and not terrible to use but it is not Photoshop.
"without Google exerting legally questionable pressure on OEMs."
What? That has got to be the dumbest statement I have ever heard.
Google says you can use all of the Google services or none. You can use Android with no google services as at all like.... Amazon does.
Google allows the user to put on other search engines, It allows other browsers. It allows other nav.....
There is nothing questionably legal about it. Frankly it is about 1000% more permissive than IOS, WP8, or Blackberry.
Sorry but no you are wrong.
My wife has spent a lot of time learning GIMP, Photoshop, and Photoshop elements.
GIMP is much better than elements but is not as good as Photoshop.
She still uses GIMP for some projects and recommends it to people that are just starting out or do not have the money to spend on Photoshop but GIMP is not a good replacement for photoshop.
GIMP is actually a good tool and a great value for the price but it is not a replacement for photoshop. Your comments about lemmings is a good example of what is wrong with the FOSS community.
Of course it is a Honey Pot people .
Actually I expected this level of FanBoi response it is a real shame that people don't bother to read anymore.
"He said Tesla will remain a "fringe brand" until it launches its next generation of vehicles and the smaller, less expensive Model 3. "
Just how right can anyone be. The current Tesla is in the same price range as the Audi A8, MB S Class, and BMW 7 series. In other words a lot more than the average annual income in the US.
When it launches the Model 3 and if it can for a good price it will be moving into the mainstream.
So exactly how is this in anyway ignoring them or even fighting them. Sounds like simple facts and observation to me.
What I don't understand is why you think the story about NBC editing the Zimmerman call was right wing fud?
They did edit it in a way to make Zimmerman seem like he was a racist. Editing that call was wrong no matter what side you are on.
Samzenpus posts lots of extreme anti nuclear stuff all the time as well. Maybe he just likes to troll both sides?
Humm. The problem that Google is trying to solve is that some companies "Verizon" sold a phone with Bing as the default and locked in search engine.
Most Android users really did not like that.
And you do not have to install any Google apps to use Android but if you want to load any of the Google Apps you have to install all of the apps.
So they do not believe in science?
Over 16 thousand people died from the tsunami.
According to the World health organisation report the expected deaths from radiation are below the statistical limits of detection.
In other words water is far more deadly than a worst case nuclear disaster.
You mean the same Germans that are building more coal fired power plants?
Yeah Solar supplements natural gas peaking power. It does not compete with Coal...
Yeah you have just proved my point.
