Your definition of "professional" doesn't match everyone else's.
In 1997, theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed that an audacious model of the Universe in which gravity arises from infinitesimally thin, vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physics. The mathematically intricate world of strings, which exist in nine dimensions of space plus one of time, would be merely a hologram: the real action would play out in a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.
Maldacena's idea thrilled physicists because it offered a way to put the popular but still unproven theory of strings on solid footing — and because it solved apparent inconsistencies between quantum physics and Einstein's theory of gravity. It provided physicists with a mathematical Rosetta stone, a 'duality', that allowed them to translate back and forth between the two languages, and solve problems in one model that seemed intractable in the other and vice versa. But although the validity of Maldacena's ideas has pretty much been taken for granted ever since, a rigorous proof has been elusive.
In two papers posted on the arXiv repository, Yoshifumi Hyakutake of Ibaraki University in Japan and his colleagues now provide, if not an actual proof, at least compelling evidence that Maldacena’s conjecture is true."

I wholeheartedly agree and if I had anything to say on the matter, planting a flag on each planet would become part of the elementary physics curriculum.
No, they are not. Poverty is an artificial construct that depends on a previous one, which is property.
An ape can't be rich nor poor, as he has no property. The first thug, whore, shaman or slaver, did the "job" in exchange for something other than property. Be it protection, food or pleasure.
Poverty is the oldest profession...
I disagree. Poverty is very unnatural. Many natural professions predate even the possibility of poverty: Hired muscle, Prostitute, Priest, Slaver.
Is there any space travel at all in gattaca?
I vaguely remember many shots of rockets leaving but no space.
And if KSP has taught me anything it's that having a nice and pretty rocket in the first stage doesn't mean in second stage you won't become a large ball of fire an debris.
Anyone can live on 50c/day, as long as they are there.
It's common for backpackers to discover after a while in Thailand that they can live for 1€/day and decide that their plan to stay as long as money allowed made no sense, as a simple call to their parents for a tiny bit of money would pay them another year there.
"One of this year's winners of the Nobel Peace prize"
Taking into account that only about 1/4 of peace prices are shared and that this year's was not, that sentence makes the post wrong from the first one or two words.
I just wanted to point out that this might be a record. A feat deserving 2013's "Fastest Error Award", also called Nobel Peace Price by some.
all without any sort of court order."
Have you recently read of anything done by anyone WITH a court order? I wonder if the courts still remember how to write one.
The template must have been used for the last time with WordPerfect 4.2.
Well, at least you cracked the neighbor's wife.
In case someone is humor impaired, I feel the need to say that the previous post was a joke.
Obviously you shouldn't crack your neighbor's wifi.
You need to drive around the city cracking a different wifi for each tweet.
I have a genuine question. Assuming one uses Twitter from the phone, how does one prevent the Twitter app on the phone to scan the browsing history ? If they cannot scan my browsing history they cannot give me ads.
1 - Set up a vnc connection from your phone to your home computer.
2 - At home, run Twitter on a virtual machine with no other app installed. (The virtual machine has its own wifi through an usb dongle never used for anything else)
3 - Crack a neighbor wifi and connect to the internet through it.
4 - Connect the virtual machine to one paid and one free vpn services. (passing through your neighbor's AP).
5 - Once you've got that set up, connect to your contact in a country with no extradition treaty with your own country and send him a plain message with what you want to tweet. Your contact shall then write the message in twitter and send you any related message or reply, by ordinary postal service to a numbered nameless po-box, far away from your home. (a different one every two weeks).
"It's the [Windows] with the lowest additional value"
That sentence scares me.
There are dark places in the universe. Depths of irrationality where mathematics are just rituals and sorcery. A chaos where what should never be is fighting to escape. In that place there's a pit that even the horrors avoid. A tear where the tapestry of reality is at its weakest point.
That's where they store "the Windows with the lowest additional value". And that's where it should stay. Watching us. Hungry.
Why is Ferrari selling its cars for so much more than Ford? For most uses it's not significantly better.......
Actually. I can't think of an example of item that's sold most because of it being significantly better instead of because of a better marketing.
