13% of Proton launches (46 of 355) have ended in failure - it's not a very impressive record.
Because if there's one thing Russia is famous for, it's QA
Absolutely true. Soyuz too has had tons of third stage failures. It's something that just keeps biting them.
Considering the joke that the legal system of the US has evolved into, I have a hard time making an informed decision whether this is the right or the wrong thing to do.
Or you're "too big to fail". Too bad his drug cartel didn't fund weapons deals with terror groups that "we" like, then he'd probably be celebrated as a true American hero instead.
If you follow that logic to its end, I guess a couple of gun manufacturers should now be sweating into their boots.
I think it's because of the freedoms that still exist.
He didn't use the money he made selling drugs to fund weapons deals to destabilize a few countries, and I think if you don't do that dealing drugs is illegal. Or something like that.
Next time if you want to rip off people, swindle them out of their money, flaunt your condescendence towards the law and be a scourge of society, run a bank. Not only is it far more efficient than some petty drug dealing, it's also safer. The worst that can happen if things go wrong is that you get bailed out.
I did. I told him about it and he asked me to stop talking, he has a sensitive stomach.
I stopped caring a while ago. Why should I? Most idiots don't care that they're being lied to. Those that do already noticed the same I did: It doesn't matter that you notice it. It's not like you can do anything about it.
Right now, I'm just sitting here, waiting for our economy to collapse in the vain hope that something better might emerge. I just don't really think there will be anything better. Different maybe, but better, hardly. Human won't change. And whether this or that asshole rules us, and this or that asshole lies to us, where's the difference? In the end it's like voting, you may only choose the person, group or entity that is given the right to fill their pockets at your expense. The option that you'd get someone who doesn't do it simply does not exist.
So apologies if I just sit here, relax and watch the world burn. Fighting windmills is more a pastime of the younger generations.
I mean, PowerPC OS X Apps didn't run that slow on Intel when using Roesetta.....how did FX!32 get it so wrong?
Emulating RISC instructions on an x86 is typically much easier than emulating x86 instructions on RISC. Particularly if you have to emulate the clunky, convoluted PC hardware, too.
are called shills.
This is wrong. As is the use of the word "troll" in the summary/article. Trolls and shills are distinct, and the difference isn't whether they get paid. You can be a paid or unpaid troll and a paid or unpaid shill.
Trolls post messages written specifically to generate responses. The term derives from fishing where trolling means to drag something through the water to catch fish. Internet trolls post baiting comments trying to get people to respond to them. Flamebaiting is a subset of trolling, where the aim is to generate angry responses.
Shills post messages to talk up some product, service, etc., trying to make it look good and its competition look bad.
Both categories also assume that the writer likely doesn't fully agree with what he or she is writing. If two people write the same words but one believes them while the other doesn't, the former is not a troll or shill, but the latter may be.
Note that paid trolls are pretty common on the Internet, but they tend to write the articles (or, on
Except here, where the rule is "Don't Read The Article".
But really should be "Don't Read the Summary", since the summaries frequently get edited into incomprehensible trollishness.
