I wouldn't either. Mostly because "amoral" doesn't mean what you think it means.
How can you have 40% of a user?
In Canada I never pass up the chance to give my postal code as H0H0H0, which is a real code that belongs to Santa, of course.
Insert before "nuke the safe from orbit":
"make sure your targeting is more accurate than +- a couple of miles".
Yeah, because a whole watt of power is completely irrelevant when you're running on a battery.
Submitter was in such a rush to bash MS he just sounded like an idiot (along with half the posters). I enjoy some good old fashioned Slashdot MS bashing, but let's make it good old fashioned MS bashing, okay?
You could say the same thing about motion. Yet we think about things moving in a classical way all the time.
The classical idea of spin works very well so long as you're talking about a reasonable number of particles. If you're not, you have to keep in mind that spin is quantized. In magnetic resonance imaging, for example, unless you're doing something obscure, classical spin is just fine, and it's what everyone uses. It's certainly good enough for a popular science article.
Lots of people don't like it. Nevertheless, that's the usual interpretation of quantum field theory. All the other interpretations are at least as weird.
Imagine rotating a globe around the N-S axis AND the E-W axis at the same time, but only half as fast on the E-W axis. After a 360 degree rotation around the N-S axis you'll be looking at the same hemisphere you started with, but it will be upside down. Only after a 720 degree rotation around the N-S axis will it look the same as when you started.
What do you mean by "physically spin"? They have angular momentum and behave in a way that is almost always consistent with them physically spinning. The classical description of nuclear spin is as useful as the Newtonian description of motion.
If you want to be pedantic, go all the way. There aren't really atoms, particularly not in a Bose-Einstein condensate, just excitations of particular fields.
Sure there is. Steve Jobs was such a visionary he could see the future!
The brain culls more connections than it makes during childhood and adolescence. But long range axons do increase in calibre, which takes up space and accounts for some of the growth of the brain. It probably accounts for some of the behavioural development as well because bigger axons carry signals long distances more effectively (even more so when they're myelinated).
Very little is known about the functional development, as it relates to the physical development, but we know quite a bit about both behavioural development AND physical development of the brain. Both of them you can, you know, watch.
Storing memories is adequately explained by reconfiguring existing connections. That doesn't mean that's all that's going on, but there doesn't have to be something else happening. The poster I replied to said that obviously the brain is growing new neurons because it develops after birth and we're able to learn. Neither of those things need to involve new neurons.
"Prices are the same for food and clothing are the same across euroland."
Unless things have changed drastically in the last couple of years, that's not even close to true. A few euros that buys you lunch and a beer in rural Greece or Spain doesn't even get you a bottle of water in downtown Berlin.
I suppose the summary doesn't actually lie because it's incoherent.
The majority of the development of the brain after birth is myelination and growth of axons, not new neurons. In fact, neurons are drastically pruned in young children so their numbers decrease.
Storing memories can also be adequately explained by existing neurons growing new and reconfiguring existing connections among themselves.
That must be fairly new. They certainly didn't last time I talked to them. Ditto with Rogers. Last time I tried to negotiate a plan without a contract I had the option of about four incredibly crappy (and expensive) plans. The others were contract only.
It has been a few years since I've looked into plans. I made a complaint to the telecommunications commissioner and Rogers/Fido coughed up a "special" plan.
