I find this comment somewhat scary.
If the reason people are pronouncing etc "ett-see" is because they don't know, here's the deal: etc is an abbreviation for "Et cetera", which means "and so on". You're supposed to pronounce it "Et centera" for the same reason that if I wrote "Brocolli w/ carrots" you'd read it and pronounce it as "Brocolli with carrots", not "Brocolli double-ewe carrots."
I've never had a CFL fail. I've been replacing incandescents with CFLs whenever a bulb burns out. My oldest CFL is 7 years old and my newest is a little under 1 year old.
Many of us are still living! Just a bit dispersed here and there.
It's a happening place. There are upwards of 3, maybe 4 posts a day!
You should join us, if you like.

You're asking a community a large minority of which think "etc" is pronounced "Ett See" how to pronounce "CentOS"?
Not to mention you'll be able to tell the time when you're outside with eInk...
My dream smartphone has an eInk display too, but alas, that's not the way things are going right now...
No, it doesn't.
Even if we reject religion, and, say, go for a "World is actually The Matrix" hypothesis (which, similarly, has human bodies controlled by observers external to the observed world", the best we can genuinely say about this region of the brain is that activating it disables "whatever controls the brain" (internal or external.) Unless the observers have an seperate memory (and why would they?), everything is consistent with that observation link being severed. The observers (be they souls or Matrix hook-ups) are no longer able to modify the brain's memory, to move the body, or in any other way interact with it. When that part of the brain is allowed to operate again, they can do so.
If we at least assume memory is local, which it has to be, there's no incompatability. If memory is not local, it's still possible there's no incompatability because the lack of communications between observer and avatar will result in no memory data being written.
On the other hand, the good news is that as you haven't proven the non-existence of God, you will be unable to prove that black is white, and thus will not be killed on the next Zebra crossing.
No, his argument is that driving should be allowed because driving is mandatory in most of the country. It is, with planners deliberately designing development areas to be impractical for foot traffic and uneconomic for public transport. If someone sucks at driving but they can't go to a job or store without driving, then however insane it is, it'd be inhuman to ban them altogether.
If you want this to change, start lobbying your county and State to allow more high density development. That's the real solution.
Mine doesn't resolve this morning (a free noip.me subdomain) FWIW.
I suspect, FWIW, the complete works of Byron are in the public domain and can be downloaded for free anyway...
(That said I'm aware that it doesn't matter. If I had a complete copy of the works of Asimov, signed by the good Doctor himself, I wouldn't want to vandalize it either.)
If this were a certain other high end phone manufacturer, the media would be falling over itself to explain how these improvements mark a new era in phone technology.
The improvements seem reasonable and unless they add excessively to the cost there's no reason to criticize them.
You're right, it's an obvious dog whistle. I'd challenge the GP to come up with a case where any previous Democratic President or Presidential candidate had a Welfare-related term associated with him by a Republican.
I'm not sure what it is but I've seen a real increase in what might be called the resentment movement here, an assumption that white males have it bad because groups that, as groups, have historically faced socially (including legal, financial, etc) hurdles are finally being given a helping hand. If these attempts to bring equality were being seen as overwhelmingly successful, to the point that women were outnumbering men in high paying respected professions, I'd see the point. But Google's doing this precisely because women make up such a tiny proportion of its own workforce - and not because of any apparent discrimination at the hiring or supervision level.
