Lucky for us, astrophysicists don't run or operate the grid. 10 years? Are you kidding me? How the hell is that credible? If that was true then it would have taken 1000 years to build the current grid. Only it didn't and most of the grid was built very very recently (Hint we use more power every year).

GP is a well known troll on this sort of topic. Mostly just makes up facts. For example he/she once posted that Three Mile Island killed tens of thousands of people. When it comes to his/her beloved Germany. Well shesh, the solar panels will need to work at peek power even in the middle of the night to even close to a angle o sphere claim.

Which isn't to say IQ is worthless, it still measures of ability.

Only in the US. Where it is mostly just a self fulfilling prophecy.

I would argue not only is that IQ as it is currently measured is worthless as it does not measure what it set out to. But also that the fundamental assumption behind it is also flawed.

I have worked with this data. Its very short fragments and are far from complete. Hell even modern genomes are far from complete. We know that DNA is simply not long term stable unless preserved at very cold temperatures. Temperatures that just have not been around on earth for that long in a single location.

Most public domain software is free, at least at first glance.
