Lenses are wonderful things. You can have a display inches from your eye, with a focal point hundreds of meters away.
I'm sure he was thinking of a stationary or synchronous orbit anyway, which is a bit more specific than areocentric
It would be like me telling you that you can buy drugs from random people in a certain area of the city.
Well, don't hold out. Where can I get some weed already?
The PB is, by definition, for PIRATES.
Are you saying that everyone who uses The Pirate Bay is also hijacking ships in the Indian Ocean and holding the crews for ransom? I had no idea.
I thought they were just downloading porn and Transformers movies.
What's the counterexample again? That Apple users are renegades who know a thing or two?
This is the kind of failure that dead tree media warned us about.
They feared that it could be used to suppress protest or support unpopular rule.
Your sig is eerily appropriate here...
But who will bother with wallets anymore, once paradise is fully legislated? Private property is so capitalist.
And you can always explain away any attacks of conscience by claiming you simply want everyone to be personally responsible for themselves, even as your policies take away the means to do so from the majority of people.
I wish I'd written that.
It's sort of like claiming your view represents the majority while trying to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of legal voters.
Are you saying Apple users are not sheep?
For a flight that doesn't reach orbit and stay there with the environment in 0G for at least a few orbits, I wouldn't pay anything. Heck, I won't pay a commercial airline to fly because the ratio of inconvenience to convenience+enjoyment is too high between the (id|patr)iot act's enforced paranoia and the seating designed by one-legged, one-armed engineers. Now an oceangoing cruise liner, that's something else again. I loves me a nice cruise. It's even worth going first class, which it definitely isn't in a commercial airliner.
However, for a flight that *does* go to orbit and stays a few turns, and doesn't require a spacesuit, and for which I could have a very private cubby with a view for two for the orbital duration, I might part with as much as five thousand for two seats, just for those few hours. They'd have to let me take my camera, though.
Which means I'm not going to get to go.
Well, despite all that, I'm curious why they cannot simply open a satellite office in virtual space and employ their foreign workers remotely. What exactly is so unique about working for an internet site that you have to ignore the entire premise of the internet and be somewhere in person?
