Hence it would probably be a good idea to establish some sort of colony off-planet.
You'll have to forgive me if I don't take the survival of the human race as flippantly as you do...
The number that survives an ELE is irrelevant, as long as they are able to form a stable reproductive pool.
Were going to be around for a couple billion years and the race will adapt to whatever is thrown at it.
Two words: Extinction-level Event. Hence why we need to be able to get off the planet. Even assuming that doesn't happen for billions of years (wasn't there that hypothetical big asteroid that killed the dinosaurs? How many billion years ago was that?), you're assuming we won't have comprehensively fucked the environment in the next couple hundred years.
Take care of the shit going on first, then worry about space.
So basically, we're never ever going into space again. Okay then.
The summary also completely fails to mention what the hell kind of software he was looking for.
The general rule everywhere else I've driven is that traffic going straight has right-of-way, and those turning yield, which I suppose is why I was so surprised.
You're talking illegal civilian murders vs. government-sanctioned military operations. Conflating the two is a particularly strained argument.
Wait...you're saying that gun control *caused* World War II? How is that? Yes, there was the Washington Naval Treaty, but I'm not grasping your logic here.
Dammit. The preview showed "victims" highlighted but it vanished on submission?
Optimistically interpreted, he's saying it's unfortunate that the segment of gun violence that has attention drawn to it in the media isn't a larger chunk of the overall problem, the drawing of attention to which would be more effective comparatively.
I ran across a T-junction with a yield sign at the base of the T not too long ago. As there was also gravel in the intersection, I believe it may have been very slightly uphill, and night, I didn't immediately realize it was a T-junction and very nearly had a heart attack.
Only in the rural Midwest...
Good point. I suppose it depends whether we define 'emulator' and 'simulator' as being on the same continuum. If the emulator itself circumvents the security, I suppose I would indeed call it an emulator. But of course that makes it even harder to legally distribute...
Admittedly, some of those are Windows vs. Linux considerations which I've since discovered the reason for (auto-selecting the whole address kills the X Selection under Linux).
Heh--actually got the number right off the top of my head.
