Sure, but then what corporate abuse can you not justify with the above argument? Slave wages? Rampant pollution? Heroin? Just because someone, somewhere might do things differently is no reason to abandon all attempts to reign in our emissions.
I think we should just make the existing grades go up to "11"
If the difference is that striking, then why is there so small a market for developing the film? Truth is 98% of of photos taken only have to have enough resolution to allow a lolcat macro. People are blind, I can't believe it's not butter eating philistines.
Lines of equations and code and whatnot are cool, but fractals are where it's at. I imagine it'd be fairly involved as far as detail goes, but people have done it. It's about as visually appealing as mathematics gets.
You realize that if they wrest control of our thermostat from us we'll just start leaving the freezer door open right?
Speaking as a desert rat, comparing the AC needs of Maryland and Arizona is like comparing the electrical usage of an Amish community to LA. Not that your point isn't valid, but I'm sitting in the dark and it's well over 80 degrees in here.

Ok, I've had my fun, you may return to the matter at hand.
What if you were remaking the story 'Flatworld'? Maybe we just haven't started thinking about stories that occupy the extra dimensions. Also, as the Piranha 3d trailer pointed out, albeit somewhat clumsily: we have the power to make 3d breasts. Seriously. Inverse nippomatics.
not as much as if he breaks that ground barrier *padumpsshhh*
Glenn Beck freaked out at a behavior in others that could be called his trademark style. Unless he's upset that they're moving in on his action, that's irony. I laughed just reading the summary, who made you the arbiter of funny?
So last week it was "We're bombing the moon!" and this week it's "there's a big hole in the moon!"? hmmm
Actually... it's not clear that it would be profitable at all http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Do_cities_lose_money_hosting_the_Olympics You could also check out Democracy Now, they talked about it a little. As for more substantial citations, well that's for you to research - as I am a very lazy devil's advocate.
OOooh... Sorry sir, that'd be me, we'll take our mortars and shuffle off your lawn now. (C'mon you have 364 days out of the year where I'm not blowing up your neighborhood.)
