The summary puts me in mind of Tolkien's essay How Like a Leaf (and the companion short story "Leaf by Niggle"), wherein he explored the act of "subcreation" (i.e. creating fiction, whether literary, imaginary, visual, etc.) as part of what "in god's image" means: acting in a smaller capacity as a creator was for Tolkien inseparable from his spiritual beliefs as a christian trying to live in the image of god. Caveats: I am not christian, nor am I asserting that "in god's image" is universal among deistic religions, or that it does not have other interpretations, yadda yadda yadda...
How in the world can the StackExchange formun StackOverflow be responsible for such anomolous acceleration events? I mean praise reddit or IRC alternatives to stackoverflow.com all you want, but tone down the rhetoric willya? Sheesh.
Hahahaha! You've never worked in the non-profit world, huh? I certainly paid income tax, social security, etc. when working in the non-profit world.
Just like if one's personal faith entails, say, pacifism (of the no support for institutional violence variety), that does not mean that one gets to opt out of, say, taxes that support the military, the police, or the prison system.

There must also be 'illegitimate rape,' right? Send that clown packing back to the anti-woman nut house he escaped from.

The Kyoto Protocol's emissions targets were woefully inadequate to avert the worst of greenhouse gas (GHG) related climate change. However, the Kyoto Protocol was the ONLY international framework for negotiating multilaterally on curbing emissions of greenhouse gasses. The Bush/Obama administration in the US and China sure did a good job destroying that framework putting multilateral efforts to ameliorate climate change on an even more glacially slow path. To quote Stephen Colbert "Enjoy that metaphor, by the way, because your grandchildren will have no idea what a glacier is."

The strategies of recruiting out-of-state and foreign students reflects decades of disinvestment in public education by the state government. Where I teach the state legislature retains 100% of the control over our budget despite contributing only 1/8th of that same budget. This pattern exists in state throughout the U.S.. If you want a quality public university system get on the phone, write letters and organize to pressure your state government to fund it.
terrorists could use that model to plan attacks!
Regenerative breaking for people!
the thing about pictures and video is that (a) they aren't memories, they're recordings, and (b) their production seriously colors the kinds of actual memories you are forming of your wife's last moments (e.g. 'ah yes, i fondly remember looking for battery charger and inserting new sd cards whilst my beloved was passing away.')
