The 18th amendment made life seem longer by depriving people of alcohol. It's already been abolished.
Statistically speaking even if your body can live forever, some kind of accident will almost certainly kill you in that ten thousand year timeframe.
Wouldn't people get more risk-averse and change the probabilities? You've driven behind 70-year-old-guys. Now imagine 7000-year-old-guy is driving the car in front of you!
"What health problems? My health is probably better than yours."
Is "Internet Healthy Guy" a new variation on "Internet Tough Guy"?
"My blood pressure could kick your blood pressure's ass!"
Let me guess, you are under the age of 30, yes? Probably under the age of 25?
This is location-dependent, not age-dependent. Singular "they" is perfectly OK in Britain, and I think it's something that Americans could find useful too, once they get over their grammar doubts.
Comcast have been rolling out IPv6, and I can now get all of Google/YouTube, Facebook, and Wikipedia. Slashdot is still only IPv4, of course.
TWC's installed equipment may delay a roll out right now, but a long term commitment to IPv6 would be good.
Most of the Internet is built this way already. The Internet backbone is mostly idle and under-utilized. About 80% of the fiber that was installed for the backbone has gone unused as technology keeps pushing data transfers faster and faster.
Let's take round numbers - 100 fiber pairs between a pair of major cities, with 80 of them unused, and (say) 1Tbit/s on the other 20 pairs. That's 20Tbit/s of backbone capacity, and you might think of it as 80Tbit/s "unused". However, to bring those fibers into use, you need to sink the capital costs for the routers, optics for the 10 or 100Gbit/s ports, and the DWDM equipment. That's not a trivial cost, and people will need a business case for turning up new capacity.
It's a lot easier to upgrade the core than the edge, but the core router ports certainly aren't sitting there at some low utilization all the time.
Yep. 100% sure. I've even researched how so many people can believe this is an actual quote when it isn't (which is a strange phenomenon). I'm also a huge Simpsons geek.
The actual quote is: Wiggum: Well that's some good work, Lou. You'll make sergeant for this.
But almost universally people say and believe it to be "That's some (mighty) fine detective work, Lou"
people have far more faith in the value of the U.S. Dollar and the Euro than they do even in Jesus of Nazareth
There's a wedding coming up. I'll try to use some dollars to get food for the guests. Any thoughts about how to get the wine?
My driving instructor used to lean across to blow the horn and wave when he saw one of his former students. I noticed that a high proportion of his former students seemed to be pedestrians.
We both used to confuse "left" and "right" too, which sometimes worked out fine.
