That's actually not the case with obese patients. It's only true for people who are, shall we say, chubby at most.
You also said it was a "small risk" when it's actually a massive risk. Get Gmail password, look for signups to other sites (invariably will contain username), notice Gmail password is XYZ123gmail, WOLOG say there was a Slashdot signup, go to slashdot.org and attempt login with username listed in Slashdot email + XYZ123slashdot, repeat for any other email with "registration" in the subject.
I was puzzle by this (as I know that Musk is a smart guy), but just now Bruce Perens made a comment below [slashdot.org] that made my head spin bit. Basically his comment is that Musk is somehow conspiring to kill high speed rail, with the implication that the hyper loop is just a tool for this purpose.
It may come as a shock to you, but being an expert in one field doesn't make you an expert in every field. There is nothing that makes Bruce Perens's opinion on this conspiracy theory any more valuable than, say, mine.
brute force attacks are a small risk as is guessing based on intimate knowledge of me
Well, if I get one of your passwords and know you visit a second site, then I immediately know the password to that second site. Not terribly secure.
prosecutors are gleefully suing anyway for bs offenses
If you're going to act haughty about your opinion on legal issues, you should at least know that prosecutors don't sue.
We would open all the windows and by the morning the house would be around 65 degrees.
Oh, would that Texas weren't so humid, I'd be doing this, too. But nothing like waking up to a raincloud in your house in August in Texas! The front doors in Houston sweat.
I would do something that modern constructors have forgotten to do: have all your big windows (or, at minimum, master bedroom) on the side of the house that faces the equator. This means in the winter you get sunlight as heating, and in the summer you get less direct sunlight, meaning a cooler house.
The house I live in currently, built a scant twenty years ago, has the MBR windows facing west, which means crazy AC costs in the summer (Texas!) just to get the MBR under 80 degrees F when it's time to go to sleep. It's unbearable, but boy was the house cheap.
Netflix has already established that the price for a streaming package is around 8$ per month.
Ah, but as of a couple days ago, Netflix is actually planning to roll out commercials . Showtime does not have commercials, so they could charge more.
The musical adaptaion of The Lion King had a ten year run in London.
Not just that - you'd be hard pressed to find more than a couple popular musicals on Broadway right now that isn't one of three things: (1) revival; (2) jukebox musical [i.e., one that is a thinly-written story wrapped around a Greatest Hits album]; or (3) big Disney production.
How would the West feel about the release . . .
Well, the US didn't hack England when a subsidiary of a quasi-UK government entity released this film less than a decade ago: Death of a President (about the fictional assassination of George W. Bush).
Correct. The US hacked a hostile nation's government, one we're technically at war with, that has repeatedly declared it will attack the US and has fired weapons at our allies, and that kidnaps our allies' citizens.
North Korea hacked a private corporation's network to disclose random people's private information and to engage in artistic censorship.
Totally equivalent, yup.
The crash transcript would be some guy...PC LOAD LETTER?! What the fuck does that--radio silence------
WRT54G is, as you might assume from the "G" at the end, a G router. In the United States, G is faster than the connection to the house. An order of magnitude faster, actually.
Picture a cube if you lived in 2-dimensional space. You might see it as a square, or as an oblique slice through a cube.
Actually you'd see it as something like a line. To see a square, you'd have to be "above" the sheet of paper that is your two dimensional world, which necessitates a third dimension.
We do that in the US, too. It's a tax levied on gasoline/petrol.
