Yes stuff mutate. That is how we got from bacteria to human over billion of year. The key here is that function of protein evolved too, and sometime mutation are deleterious, and sometime function changes. But if both are sufficiently different, the probability to go from one to the other over statistically human relevant time (e.g. hundreds of year) is trending toward zero. In some case like when researcher inserted fish gene into tomatoe, that probability becomes even low over geological time.
Don't get me wrong, I agree with your assessment that the probability we make something catastrophic is relatively low, but stating that the result could be gotten by random mutation in the wild, or even breeding is overstating it , downright to a lie in many case.
Please just don't. Refrain in future. You are just making it more difficult for us to convince the GMO fearing when you spread such obvious bad comparison.
Alternatively there has been dumb people publishing their attempt on twitter or whatnot. Now , a lone snipper or gunman or bomb maker, which do not publish what they will do beforehand, that would be something else. Especially with drone which can hold enough weight to have a gun or a bomb. Also remember , some people landed and there were drone on the white house zone. Which leads me to think, the secret service might not be that incredible either, but enough to catch the most dumb and less likely to reach their goal.
The only things pretty much they would be detecting are intentional signal sent by ET "we are here!". But here is the food for thought : beside that 2 or 4 broadcast totaling about 1 hour or so, we would not be able to detect ourselves.
pretty much the only advertising I see are the rare panels on the side road, 99% of which are for product which I will never use. In fact I would be unable to tell you what current ad runs at the moment anywhere.
For the better or the worst, I am cut off from advertising. As for taking decision subconsciously , it is highly overrated. Sure you may influence overall people , like the infamous butt distance limit (forgot the name : in supermarket if you pack product too much each and make the alley between product not wide enough people buy less of *all* products, because our natural propension of keeping distance and feeling privately invaded when too near each others. But a wider alley and people buy on average a little more from all product in the alley). But most of the stuff is subttle - as in it only has a Limited influence and can only be checked over mass statistic. In other word you won't force people subconsciously against their will to buy a product by advertising changing color and fonts, but over the mass you may change your market share a bit.
"You've probably made thousands of decisions that have been very subtly manipulated by corporations" you amy done thousand decision which were subtely or even much less ubtely influence by everybody. When was the last time your peer, your significant other, your family, your friend did NOT influence your decision ? Saying corp influenced our decision a way or another is as bland and as empty as saying we are influenced by our peer. No shit sherlock. But the difference is that our peer are allowed to influence us directly (like the oh no so subtle reminder from my girlfriend that our 5 year anniversary is coming) whereas for some reason people get uneasy when corp do it. So they have to go for the subtle. But frankly, their influence is vastly more limited than your peer's.

"I would just like climatologists to admit that most of their prior models have had their faults and this one may as well
all climatologist admit that, and this in addition to existing error bars. This is why climatology is a science , because if it finds a better way to model, it drops the old model and take a new one. That is why we can speak of prior model: because better one came up.
but that doesn't give us the right to jump down everyone's throat that has a differing opinion.
No sorry indeed it does. Opinion are WORTHLESS sorry for the caps emphasis but it needs to be told. If you have a concurrent model which better model the data make a paper. Then we can talk. But opinion have no say in a science discussion. You may as well speaks about the opinion of 40+% of the american which have the opinion the theory of natural selection is bunk. That is why opinion are not worth anything whatsoever, and what claims can be advanced without evidence (deniers opinion) can be dismissed without hassle.
besides, most of which should be "forgotten" shouldn't be forgotten at all: your douchebag financial or criminal history for example
Wrong. 95% of the request are actually found to be perfectely normal member of the public. Less than 5% are about prison, and financial stuff.
and most importantly: if you don't want it to be public, don't make it fucking public in the first place.
And what do you do when a 3rd aprty publish information on you ? Well good luck with that. And outdated information ? And many country prefer rehabilitation versus revenge. that women for example which made a tweeter PR faux pas ? If it follows her forever then her life is ruined. She will be unemployable for the rest of her life.
if you're looking to make a hiring decision or a dating decision, search on the person using a proxy from another country. 30 seconds extra effort and well within the technical abilities of even the barely computer literate
Most people do not bother with the US google they use their own language google. And that is enough to be forgotten.
heck, some euro should write an app for the purpose: "find out what the loser is hiding from you! search their history from another country!"
Some "euro" yeah nice spelling. You realize that such app would imemdiately be ilelgal and the person attacked in justice if it sell/offer this app made especialyl to skirt the law ?
"And while there is some evidence that they reduced the employment of low skilled workers, and, to a lesser extent, middle skilled workers, industrial robots had no significant effect on total hours worked"
There is a chance that overall the numbers of hours stayed the same but as indicated here the reduced employment on low skilled worker is the problem. Up to recently there was always a way for such to go into a different branch with low requirement. It isn't possible anymore. And this is the huge problem the study misses. And this is the doom and gloom issue that not only some people on slashdot but on economics forums foresee. Furthermore the study does not seem to make a difference between part time hours and full hours as it aggregate the overall time.
