Oh that is just a pile of crap. If it is sound it can be copied! We did not talk about resolution because most devices might not have the resolution needed to fool the human being. This is what one calls going forward in time. You talk about how your devices are the "pure" thing, I call BS! For if you went back say 200 years or even 300 years did your piano sound like they do now? This is the entire crux of the argument in that instruments have advanced, and changed with the passing of time. Sounds change, and what sounds appropriate changes as well. No what I hear are people who yell, "get off my lawn I don't want an friggen change because it is not right."
That is the cynicism that gives Americans what they have now. If every American actually felt there was a problem it would stop. The problem is that Americans condone this behavior as a general populace. So you get what you vote for. It is like the stat, "oh I hate Congress, but my guy is doing just fine, the others are the problem." RIGHT!!! It is always the OTHER...
Actually, let me give you a stat.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-24998497
Kids today are slower than their parents. Let me give you another thought, when did video games become popular? Interestingly the heyday of tv did not cause kids to become slower or fatter. Driving a car? Well that has been a grand American tradition since the 50's. There is only one thing left... Video games! I am not putting all of the blame on it, but it is too much of a coincidence. And please don't start quoting Correlation does not imply causation, kids are not moving around enough today largely due video games!
Now about older people being fat? Actually yeah that is how it always has been. Look at this stat: http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/statistics_explained/index.php/Overweight_and_obesity_-_BMI_statistics
See the interesting trend? As you get older you get fatter. Now here is the problem, young kids are fat, and they are only going to get fatter as they get older.
No, no, and again no...
Gasoline tanks are buried in the car and surronded by other crap. If you hit something then you will hit other parts of the car first. THink of the dynamics needed to incite a gasoline tank explosion.
The problem with a tesla is that it has batteries EVERYWHERE along the bottom of the car. So the probability of you hitting the battery is very high. Simply put this is not good because it shows a flaw in the design.
That is not high speed. Let me tell you about high speed... 155 MPH is what I drive on the autobahn. THAT's high speed. 70 is chugging along on the highway at normal speeds.
IMO and I will probably get downgraded because of this comment... WOOOPEEE DOOOO! So you did a nice job, like you said. However, a UI is only a detail. The backend and getting that work is often much more difficult. I get really annoyed by some Silicon Valley types that think I can rewrite an entire enterprise system over a weekend. It involves a bit more than just fancy UI and greenfield database storage.
My guess what went wrong of the the original healthcare website is that it was designed with enterprise in mind and became bogged down in enterprise details. Would not be the first time, and will not be the last time something like this happens.
Wow you have a really inefficient car... I regularly drive the Zurich - Frankfurt route, and can get from point A to point B in one tank driving REALLY fast! Sure there are spots where I am limited to 150 KPH, but other times I drive 250 if I can.
Really? You know, how so? I have driven those types of stretches and at that speed can get that mileage. And yes I live in Europe and yes I lived in Germany.
I call BS! I know I have. I drive a Mercedes and I can get 300 miles, or about 450 KM (regularly drive Frankfurt - Zurich), I have also drive a Fiat Coupe from Kiel to Cannes in one sitting (not one tank of gas)! Yes cars can get that mileage...
You are making a major failure in your logic. You are thinking that if we all hold back and be nice all will work out. You see human mentality is not like that. If there is a chance to fart in your face somebody will do it, whether you like it or not. This is part of a civil civilization. Here is a really simple example. Germany and the EU. Economists have shown time and time again, domestic consumption needs to be increased in Germany. And time and time again Germany says "no we build better products and it is up to others to catch up." This is a pile or shit! Yes Germany has many advantages, but they are taking major advantage of the Euro, for under normal circumstances the DM would have shot up like the CHF.
You see, we should be civilized enough to have Germany cooperate. (BTW if all were exporters who would consume? That point is lost on the Germans.)
Thank-you! I wish you were modded much higher!
How many Americans actually listen to what Alaskans do and want? Oh yeah nobody...
That is bs! The reason why California wakes up with New York is because those who have to do. Those that don't, don't wake up. For example, what are the store hours or a best buy in California and in New York? http://stores.bestbuy.com/428/ and http://stores.bestbuy.com/187/. See that? Same hours! So in other words the best buy in California does not give a rats arse on when stores open in New York. They open according to the local timezone. Switch that into two timezones and things become confusing because those on either end of the zone will not appreciate the lack of sun.
The idea of two time zones is absolutely insane. I lived in Vienna while my wife lived in Zurich and there was an hour difference in sunrise and sunset. It was not nice to have to live and work in Vienna as it meant very early to rise and early to bed. I like the notion of time zones, and like the notion of switching because it really does make a difference. If it were up to me I would add a few more time zones because some cities at either side of a zone have really odd sunrise and sunset.
Good for you comparing Obamacare to what the NSA is doing! The topic is NSA and not Obamacare. If Americans cared so much about their rights like they cared for their hate of Obamacare MAYBE, just MAYBE the NSA would not be doing what it is doing. But hey you are exactly the reason why the NSA is doing what it is, and thinking the real problem is Obamacare!
Oh give me a break!
Let's play devils advocate...
Obama: "NSA stop everything no more spying! I am cutting off your funds."
Reaction from the pundits: "Obama likes the evil guys and supports terrorists!" That is exactly what the pundits will say. Simply put Obama is dammed if he does, and dammed if he does not. The problem here is that this is not a president issue, but a security system that has gotten out of control!
