10,000 yrs later and all of a sudden society has this absurd calorie counting obsession.
We have to have calories. Otherwise the Food industry couldn't say that the chemical sludge they sell is just as good for you as the stuff a farmer produces.

Part of the problem is the way healthcare is billed in this country.
If I go in and see a doctor, I'm billed for an office visit. If I get a flu shot, which I'm supposed to do every year given my underlying medical conditions, it's a separate billable expense. Take a test, that's another bill. Xray? Another bill.

This is so completely and utterly backwards.
Aren't we all supposed to have quality insurance now? Why hasn't this problem gone away? Why are patients still being refused treatment because of economic circumstance?

So someone comes up with a list of things that might be planets, then someone does further analysis and finds out that some aren't. Even (gasp) 52% of them! Science must therefore be useless.
Just for clarification from TFA, they did not disqualify over 1,000 candidates. What they found was: 67 Binary Stars and 3 Brown Dwarfs out of the 129 candidates they actually looked at.
That seems like an awfully small sample size to me, but hey I'm not a scientist.
How does someone clearly too stupid to be a judge get appointed as one? Or is he merely on the payroll of the media companies?
What a fucking useless asshat.
Well, he was appointed by George W. Bush.
There is quite a culture clash with the established programmers. New ones want IDEs, old ones still put DISPLAY statements in their code to debug.
DISPLAY only works for the simple stuff.
Most old programmers use Xpediter, like god intended.
Define "codemonkey". What is the bare minimum a code monkey must know so that he can do professional code monkeying?
Just off the top of my head.
A code monkey must be able to:
Another megabytes the dust.
