In the case of anything but the most limited of exchanges, my house wasn't going to be worrying about ionizing radiation, it was going to _be_ physics dust settling in a glassy crater. The "watching the mushroom clouds" line was purely for show; there wasn't going to be anyone around to watch.
I'm not sure that a poncho would help.
I grew up in the middle of Silicon Valley - a major techno-industrial center wedged between a fairly major military base and two major population centers. As part of my Boy Scouts Disaster Preparedness merit badge, we had to explain our plan in case of a nuclear war being declared. I told them "kick back on the roof in a lounge chair and watch the mushroom clouds go up."
There was a brief pause, and the instructor said "Fair enough."

I think Amarok has a fantastic user interface and helps me manage my files well. My only complaint is that it crashes about 50% of the time if I ask it to actually play music. Apart from that its great.
Strangely, the interface that Apple designed for Windows-based systems is orders of magnitude stupider than the one they designed for MacOS. Its almost like they didn't like Microsoft or something. I'm sure its a coincidence.
Of course their interface for Linux is "use our crappy window manager or die", so I guess I shouldn't complain.

That was the quote that grabbed my eye too. And while I agree with your interpretation, I can't help but also note that this is scientiffic evidence that achievement in our education system is not highly correlated with understanding of the subject materials...
...because he is as dumb as a box of hammers.
What? We didn't say we'd tell you _how_ he was wrong, just _why_.
Truth (but alas, no mod points.) Though the close correspondence between the two in the research would seem to initially imply that there are a minimal number of confounding factors. If you tell me there is a statistically significant link between scores on test A and trait B, the simplest conclusion is that test A tests for trait B. Doesn't make it true; just the simplest answer. Any longer train of logic requires more assumptions and/or discrepancies to explain away. Case in point; if we assume IQ tests measure pattern matching and noise filtering and X, then we have to explain why we don't (if we don't) have a bunch of people who are lousy at pattern matching, but score high on IQ tests anyways (because they're good at X). There are lots of perfectly sensible answers for that, but we'd better go find one.
Of course, if we _do_ have a bunch of people like that that need explaining, then its good evidence for the existence of one or more X's...
That's a high 6 3/8ths, Imperial.
The goal of a user interface is to make it easy for a user to do _what they want_. If the thing you made it easy to do is what they wanted done, then it isn't possible for it to be too good. If you made it easy for them to do something they didn't want done by mistake, then its not "too good", its not good enough.
'The relationship between IQ and motion suppression points to the fundamental cognitive processes that underlie intelligence'
Or, IQ tests don't test anything but pattern matching / the ability to filter noise in the first place.
UUnfortunately the site was crashed 20 minutes later by illiterate 16-year-olds shouting "For the Emperor!"... and then served by lawyers from GW 20 minutes after that.
Nah; smart people are generally mad.
(The voices in my head told me so.)
