It means Hack The Auto in Deutsch.
Test tracks rarely allow for what happens in the real world when snow, rain, and fog combine with small kids and pets playing.
How many billions in lawsuits for their lifetime (a kid lives 100 years, and becomes a CEO that means $40 billion each kid) will these Steel Death Automatons rack up before they are outlawed except in retirement communities without kids or pets?
Next thing you know, you'll tell me that the modern smartphone has more processing power and data storage than all the spacecraft we've sent to other planets combined, and all the computers we built up to the year 2000.
And the international Data Treaties the Senate confirmed with the EU and Canada that make such actions illegal and unconstitutional.
Get a warrant! A specific individual warrant!
The defining feature of a technological civilization is the capacity to intensively “harvest” energy. But the basic physics of energy, heat and work known as thermodynamics tell us that waste, or what we physicists call entropy, must be generated and dumped back into the environment in the process. Human civilization currently harvests around 100 billion megawatt hours of energy each year and dumps 36 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the planetary system, which is why the atmosphere is holding more heat and the oceans are acidifying.
All forms of intensive energy-harvesting will have feedbacks, even if some are more powerful than others. A study by scientists at the Max Planck Institute in Jena, Germany, found that extracting energy from wind power on a huge scale can cause its own global climate consequences. When it comes to building world-girdling civilizations, there are no planetary free lunches.
By studying these nearby planets, we’ve discovered general rules for both climate and climate change (PDF). These rules, based in physics and chemistry, must apply to any species, anywhere, taking up energy-harvesting and civilization-building in a big way. For example, any species climbing up the technological ladder by harvesting energy through combustion must alter the chemical makeup of its atmosphere to some degree. Combustion always produces chemical byproducts, and those byproducts can’t just disappear
chemicals my friend
wouldn't take much of the right kind. nice aerosolizer already provided by the craft
biologic if you're exotic
nuclear just plain stupider
but for maximum shits and giggles and no loss of life, i'd load a degaussing coil on a drone and fly it through a target office. do a little tap over all the workstations to get the hard drives
oh shit, am i on some list now?
Pfft, I'm getting 1.1mbps over DSL on a good day where I am. And my 4g phone, when I can get a signal, pulls maybe 600kbps. A 1/4 mile down the road our neighbor has cable at 30mbps, but he pays roughly 4 times as much as we do. Even with that price tag though, they end their line at the corner he's on, there is no service for us.
the topic is
Anonymous Asks Activists To Fight Pedophiles In 'Operation Deatheaters'
do you have anything useful to say on the topic?
that's what i tried to do, and i got many even tempered, thoughtful replies, on topic (except for yours)
but for me to speak on topic, eliciting on topic responses... that's "trolling" according to you
meanwhile, all you seem to do is talk about *me*. why? how is that useful? how is that helpful to the topic? i'm not the topic douchebag
if you desire some sort of interpersonal friction, you might want to try a dating site. otherwise, shut the fuck up, and stay on topic, or you're a useless troll
i've commented on the topic. you've commented on me. who is not contributing substantively here exactly? therefore who is the troll?
In the past the oil industry was a much bigger part of the Texas economy than it is now. It's still a large part, but there is a ton of high-tech stuff all around Texas - Apple is building all of its Mac Pro units in Texas, for example...
They also have a lot of international trade, including a major airport and shipping port too. All of that adds to economic diversity.
they simply found pak'ma'ra toilet habits to be utterly repulsive
Ah, so the pak'ma'ra used German toilets then.
Sliders started the best, but then fell apart. If it could have continued and ended as strong as it started, I would have voted for it over the others.
and who are you? why would you have a strong opinion about me. do i know you? otherwise, to go after me personally, anonymously, this is what we call a troll
