> Do remember that, theoretically, Uber/Lyft types aren't doing this full time, but more a matter of "I'm heading out to Walmart, anyone want to come along?".
Theoretically yes, in reality that's about as far from the truth as you can get for Uber drivers.
To be honest, most of the politics tab trolls (GaryPDX, HellBentForLeather, Bevets) have up and left or been banned and a lot of the former right-wing true believers with a shred of integrity (Weaver95, HubieStewart) of now have pinned some form of "I'm not a republican, I'm a libertarian" badge on in its place. Fark's Politics tab is mostly moderates and left-of-center types condemning republican talking points and making fun of the obvious trolls. That MIGHT change as we move closer to election season, but I think those with truly opposing viewpoints have scuttled off to Reddit or Freeperland.
> In the whole history of people being psychologically manipulated and abused, they *all* could have stopped it simply by saying no, and walking away.
Yes, maybe in the real world, face to face interaction where you can't click block and they're gone.
I read the article. I'm just claiming bullshit on the argument that somehow this physics professor is such a master psychological manipulator that he coerced dozens of women halfway across the world to send him nudes over the internet for no good reason.
If you're *that* emotionally troubled with abandonment issues that you're sending a guy over the internet that has no leverage over you nudes, I dont see how you can deal with offline interactions period.
And they could have stopped it immediately by blocking him on FB and/or just stopped the course they paid a whole $0 for.
But how exactly did he force them to do what they did *Over the internet*
You might be able to find a Geforce 750 for $125 or so. They're adequate but definitely not ideal for 1920x1080 in most PC games. They're also ridiculously efficient; they don't even need an extra PCIe power connection.
If anyone tells me they want to game on a PC and don't immediately mention a game with a more serious demand, that's the hardware I use.
I generally prefer ATI hardware because I think nVidia's stock cooling kills graphics cards and I'd rather deal with crappy drivers, but the current ATI hardware is a complete non-starter. There's really no level at all where it can be justified.
GG never made sense. projecting data onto your visor for real-time augmented reality? that's cool.
Onto or into? That makes a huge difference here.
They won't, because they'll be dead.
And that's exactly the point.
It's not quite as short-sighted as business managers only looking after the next quarter, but when people are being asked to sacrifice now for a payoff that is beyond a human lifetime, that's a very hard thing to sell. Especially when no one believes that other major countries such as the BRICs will sacrifice as well.
"Device" has always meant the motherboard.
More proof that this debate is political and not scientific.
It has been political all along. Regardless of the scientific basis, the consensus view of the American public is that they do not want to sacrifice their lifestyles for the environment, especially in this case since the benefits are non-tangible. All of the political debate is simply an extension of that.
