There will be mass denials. A very sizable section of the population will simply not be able to comprehend it, therefore will deny it. Even if they were presented face-to-face, they still wouldn't believe it.
If I had points, I'd definitely mod you up. This is exactly what he means. Not programming.
"Although, most of the cost of buying a house has more to do with procuring the land then it does with the actual cost of building it."
In the US, in 99% of the country, this is not the case. The land is fairly cheap. I've owned homes in NJ and FL. NJ is the most densely populated state. In both cases, the land was valued at about 5%-10% of the total value of the home. Even in the case where the property was on a pond on the 18th hole of a golf course.
"Might make sense in some places where cost of land is quite low. Although in many of those places, the infrastructure for building the "house factory" and transporting the house to the site would be the major problem to solve."
Also in the US, there are a good number of "pre-manufactured" home companies that already transport homes in sections to their final location. My sister has one.
And I'm not talking about "mobile homes". http://www.allamericanhomes.co...
Does it run on Lemons?
There is this software called iTunes. It lets you put a CD into a computer and rip it and store it on this thing called an iPad or iPod or iPhone. I think this has already been established as acceptable use.
I was watching Star Wars with my nephew one day and his mom heard the line "Lock S-Foils in attack position" although, that's not what she heard. What she heard was "Cock, Ass, Balls in attack position". That was 17 years ago. We still laugh about it today.
They can't afford real CEO's. They can't afford real tech people. They need smart, analytically minded people that can perform a bunch of tasks. IT people are already well versed in begging for money, so you have that base covered.
Clint Eastwood already did that back in the 80's
You just disproved your own point. What Pascal's experiment showed was that it wasn't a vacuum that created the siphon ( a vacuum would be a difference in air pressure), but when one beaker was placed higher, gravity caused the mercury to flow from the higher beaker to the lower beaker. Even without the vacuum normally associated with a siphon.
Nah, Apple and Coke pay to have their brands seen in movies and TV.
memcached and some better indexing will fix that.
They were able to go through both the Code Monster and Code Maven programs successfully and they had fun.
Cisco lays off about 5% of its workforce every year. They have always done this. It is the corporate culture. 5%ers are generally people that are there for a year to get Cisco on their resume and then they are off to someplace else. A decent percentage of new hires only last one year. They simply aren't re-hired after their probationary period. So if you are constantly hiring 5% and you lose 3% every year to this process, they are only laying off 2% of their poor performers.
They announce these layoffs every year to get a little jump on the stock price from people that thing they are streamlining.
