Lots of people with high IQ are far from brilliant. It's only a test result, it doesn't tap into your brain. The supposed verification of an IQ test is actual academic achievement; when high IQ people have low academic achievement, it might just as well mean the test is flawed.
Wow, "2, interesting" for this childish nonsense. Slashdot really is failing hard these days.
England imposed hefty student fees quite recently. There were riots, of course, but they led to nothing (except the arrest of a number of looters).
Few adults can hear sounds above 18kHz. I remember making tone generators in Pascal as a kid, beeping out audible 22kHz notes that my older brother and my dad couldn't hear. Later on, I'd try similar programs on my mobile phone, but the damn device couldn't generate tones above 16.5kHz. Poor hardware, I thought, until I tried it on my 16 years old nephew.
Grasshoppers aren't nearly that high pitched.
And in this case a right wing think tank also claim they should cut down forests for a laugh and be unwilling to do the right thing even when forced by the government.
I remember reading Junkscience.com's own 'global temperatures'. They had marked temperature differences between summer and winter. Someone ought to tell them the globe is, well, globe-shaped.
It's not exactly a trustworthy source of anything.
The quote doesn't support your claim, dude. Lurn 2 reed.
You're right. Nothing ever is Apple's fault.
The thing is, a normal 1080p 22" screen or 2560x1440 27" screen sucks at text rendering. Just look at any modern phone, and see how beautifully text is rendered. Now look back at your monitor. Even with all sorts of anti-aliasing magic, whether you're on Windows, OS X or X11, it just does not look good. 2560x1440 on a 13" monitor is just about acceptable. Sadly, the industry has been pushing multi-media and 1080p instead of pushing the boundaries, which is why any old computer can run all the new games today, and no one needs to buy a new PC for anything.
Also, what you're looking for is a tiling window manager.
Probably, but since Norway imports both meat and vegetables, it just doesn't matter.
Yes, if local sheep were the realistic alternative, but they're not. The infrastructure for transporting sheep is the same as for vegetables. The army doesn't do sheep farming.
No. Most Norwegian military bases are located in the outer parts of nowhere, and regular soldier pay is worse than lousy (military service being semi-compulsory for men, still). Even if there are restaurants nearby, it's unlikely they could serve most of the soldiers stationed there, and if they could, most of the soldiers wouldn't be able to pay.
Also, the food tends to suck anyway, so a day of vegetables shouldn't make matters much worse.
Are you implying we live in the worst of all possible universes?
So what you're saying is that bread is fear? or circuses are fear, and bread is consumption? Or that nothing is something, which has changed?
In any modern browser: mark a word or phrase, right click it, choose 'search in Google|Bing' in the context menu. Even if you type 400 WPM, you just wasted several times as much time on your stupid comments than you would on doing 'research'. Not only are you a proud idiot, you're also a time waster.
