All the more reason to let robots/A.I. handle government.
Look to advertising to be on the cutting edge of what you're describing. They are the best financed and have the most to gain from such deep manipulative techniques.

I call that 'Golden Sonic' immortality.
I'm not disagreeing with your premise at all. Not even with the original shaky evidence of the models. To some degree the more dramatic statements were more from the media reporting than the research itself. Or a university press release.
For every new bit of information we get the models get better. To assume they're perfect to start is silly. To assume that if it slightly wrong it must be completely thrown out is also silly. Incremental improvements!
I offer no evidence to my claims. I don't even claim them as claims, just idle speculation. Personally, I don't care who or what did it or why it's going to happen, but that it will eventually happen.
Could it be possible that the lack of increases in droughts, hurricanes, etc are due to an unforseen buffering effect (or underestimated buffering capacity)? Once the buffer is overwhelmed a whole cascade of 'bad things' could happen in relatively quick succession.
Exactly! I was going to say something along these lines. I truly think it's less about sound quality and more about the experience and tangibility of the records. In this digital age tangible products have a much higher value. You can have 30k mp3s and not really feel a huge attachment to them (and they can all disappear in the blink of an eye). The album art is also actually visible (compared to CD cases). The social experience of dropping the needle and hanging out with friends is also a lot of fun. A stack of records to go through on a Friday evening is great.
Record stores are also a great place to find new music as many have listening stations where you can listen to the actual record you intend to buy. None of that kiosk 30 sec sample of the middle of the song garbage.
I have a windows 7 three monitor setup with one of them in portrait mode and the other two in landscape. Maybe it's a graphics card issue?
Good point. Can you please translate into a car analogy though?

I hope TPB does come back though. It's inability to stay down for long gives me hope wrt the freedom of the internet.
I take that back...looks sketch...
Works for me!

I'm holding out for some GM firefly butts to be inserted into my arm and hooked into my nervous system. When I flex or get threatened it'll light up! Maybe electric eel glands in my hands too for some extra oomph?
I look forward to our genetic engineering future.
haha, you think Clinton is extreme left wing? You need to recalibrate, she's moderate right wing if anything!
As much as I love fission, it is FAR away from being an solved problem from an engineering standpoint.
There are some serious material science problems that still need to be addressed for any of the fast/thorium reactors to be ready for production. All the current coolant technologies have serious downsides. Sodium doesn't play nice with water or air, and liquid lead doesn't play nice with pretty much anything.
I think these problems could be solved if we approached the problem as a whole as another Manhattan project.
