Is it a 20"? I need another one of those so that I'll have three matching monitors. I have a 25.5" IPS at 1920x1200 that I'm willing to let go of. It's very very old so it has ghosting f'reals, but otherwise it's awesome. My two 20" 1680x1050 displays are at different color temps, but I have an i1 Display LT so I can mitigate that problem.
Are you trolling, or just stuck in 1995?
To be fair, he funds the Machine Intelligence Research Institute, which is devoted to mitigating existential risk from AI, and is surely getting very detailed reports from them, making him a highly knowledgeable layperson at worst (a direct expert at best).
Just playing the devil's advocate here, funding the creationism museum doesn't make you an expert on god
I don't want hear [I]anyone[/I] chiming in on "fat, stupid, lazy" until [b]they[/b] can say they spent ten-plus years in Oklahoma...
Takes one to know one, huh?
I'd take a single Titan-exploring tiltrotor VTOL craft over a hundred new lunar rovers.
You'll pay for the whole spacesuit but you'll only use the pants! BE THERE (by telepresence) OR BE SQUARE. etc.
It's Planetary Resources that wants the U.S. to break the treaty. Remember that name. No doubt it will become the Wal-Mart of outer space.
If that's the price of actually developing space industry to the point of having a Wal-Mart of outer space, so be it. Then I can buy me a space ship and fly... past the sky.
But things like the Rolling Stone UVA rape hoax, global warming, GamerGate, &c have blown the lid off what a bunch of cheap hucksters the Grievance Industrial Complex are
What? I don't even. How did you get modded up for equating global warming and a rape hoax? How many sockpuppets do you have?
No, it's something slashdot did, since I never had the scroll before and didn't change any settings.
It's worse than that; this is something that has been done again and again by researchers of various sorts. google with terms like "robot toy emotion study" and you'll get more variety along those lines than you can read through before you get bored.
I really want to like libressl. But it pretends to be openssl badly. They refused a patch that would have mitigated this whole RAND_egd problem by simply returning that it doesn't work when someone tries to use it, which means that you commonly need a patch to use it at all. If it's not going to work like openssl, then it shouldn't occupy the same space in the filesystem.
And that's why we can't have nice things: because that's the best you can do when you see someone in need.
I've seen no plan that is remotely practical that would allow pre-identification of those allowed,
If you can carry a DNR in your pocket and it's considered practicable, then you can carry a list of persons permitted to contact you in a medical emergency on the same basis.
Even if homosexuality were a disease, I still wouldn't trust the CDC to tell me what percentage of the population had it. And it isn't one.
I recall reading about this experiment. Kids were left free to play with any toys they wanted... and, surprise, they still chose the traditional ones.
The majority of them do, yes. That's fine for them to do. Some of them don't. It's not fine for the majority to force them to do so. It's not fine for the parents to force them to do so. They may be ignorant and out of control tiny little humans, but many adult humans are also ignorant and out of control and we still let them dress how they want and in most states and countries, even fuck who they want given consensuality.
OK nutter, but reduce the argument to a reasonable one — you should be able to designate someone to come see you in the hospital whether you're married or related or not — and we return to there being absolutely no valid reason to not permit you to define the small pool of people who are permitted to see you if you are in the hospital. Speaking for myself, I vehemently do not want my mother permitted into my hospital room for any reason.
