Thank you for your correction. Any help with learning this language is appreciated.
From my experience in the software industry, good managers are worth their weight in gold.
What you propose is impossible. We sill never have a perfect terrestrial civilization.
However, overall when you average out all the global situations, things have never been this good. Where do you draw the line before you say "Good enough. Lets set our goals higher"?
I love games and finished a computer science degree. Afterwards I could of went into game development, but after hearing how apalling working conditions are, avoided the industry.
Well, we can always redirect a couple of water ice commets to crash into Mars. That should provide enough O to the surface.
Isn't it nice not to have any locals complaining about extinction-size impacts?!
I stand corrected. US Military spending is indeed closely behind welfare and not insignificant. Thank you.
Moon's gravity is much less than that of Earth. However, it is sufficiently large that a maniac will have to throw the rock at a velocity of 2 km/s. Not to mention that orbital mechanics is sufficiently counter-intuitive, to make calculation of a trajectory quite non-trivial.
Long story short, that maniac would need to involve quite a significant amount of other similarly-minded maniacs to be successful. And considering how Earth would be a source of quite a few necessities of living on the Moon, that is rather unlikely.
In summary, it is unfortunately not (yet) the time for panicking and end-of-the-world sex. You are better off worrying about more mundane catastrophes: Like slipping in a shower.
Unfortunately it is not that easy. Plants require oxygen as well. Not as much as animals, but still not negligible.
Also plants require nutrients in the soil and water: Neither is readily available even if you have Earth-level atmosphere pressure of carbon dioxide.
Majority of the tax dollars is being spent on welfare. Military spending is minor in comparison.
I heard chicken eggs being reffered to in another delicious way:
Do you want it blown again?
It is object-oriented now!
Good to see that I am not alone in my admiration of Advantage series. Love the keyboard, except for those horrible rubber function keys.
If you are not a touch-typist do not get an Advantage keyboard. You will suffer gretly as that keyboard angles and layout will make your hunt-and-peck extraordinarily more difficult. Also Advantage is quite an expensive options with $300 pricetag. Adaptation period is at least two weeks as well. Also it is only manufactured in the USA and Kinesis does not provide shipping to other countries, so you may pay even more to get one from a reseller (Here in Australia I paid $400 for mine).
I would reccomend Microsoft Natural series if you want a split layout without the extremety and not breaking the budget.
All that negativity being said, once you get comfortable with Kinesis Advantage, it is just a pure joy to use (Except function keys
I would love to have a Kinesis Advantage with durability and buckling springs of Model M.
Advantage got such a good layout, but the rubber function keys are just garbage!!!
The humans are dumb nonsense comes from the fact that animals are smart enough to achieve equilibrium with their environment while humans pave a path of destruction anymore they go.
Why is it so many people see humans as not part of nature?
If we build a dam, we are damaging the ecology. If a family of beavers build a dam, it is all natural. If we grow a cow and slaughter it in a slaughterhouse, it is barbaric and unnatural. Yet when a lioness brings down a buffalo that is all fine and part of the circle of life. Why is a piece of plastic artificial, but a piece of wood carved by a beaver is not?
In my opinion humans are animals that change their environment around them to suit their needs. Just like a bird that makes a nest to care and protect its young. A city is much more comfortable for us than a forest. An airplane is a tool to get around just like a spider that builds a sail out of a web to use wind to get across a river.
Yes, we are VERY good at what we do. With our usurpassed intelligence and social hierarchies we have tames the most hostile of environments. All this "destruction" you accuse humanity of is just nature rearanging itself to another state.
I am very happy with rectangular shape of the screen. It is very intuitive and practical. GUI windows are rectangular after all.
What shape would you like your screen if you had a chance to customize?
