e.g. zydeco, Appalachian, Mongolian throat warbling. Or if you take a truer definition of "classical music", then medieval, baroque, renaissance, early and late romantic, contemporary, etc.
The questionnaire is flawed because it asks questions about involuntary reactions. I'm a classically-trained violinist, and if I started fidgeting or humming or dancing, I'd be out on my ear. That clamped my scores down a touch.
It also places a monetary value on obtaining new recordings. The study fails to account for cost-free music, whether that's from YouTube, the wireless, borrowed from the library or a friend, or downloaded for free (legally or illegally). I can get all the music recordings I want for free just by trawling YouTube. I'm thankful for this since otherwise I would only listen to music I've bought previously (which I still do anyway). My failure to devote a portion of my income to music products meant I returned low scores on that count too.
And then there's emotional involvement. For reacting emotionally to music it asks about "certain music": the peak involvement; but for social connections, it is seeking an average, which can only really be interpreted as a median. When I listen to something someone else posted on YouTube, then no, I do not feel any social connection with those gazillions of others who've thumbed it up or plussed it, nor with the man with funny hair who pushed the "go" button on his fancy sequencer software. Again, this limited my score.
So, as one of the most involved musicians in my circle of musician friends, I scored less than 30% for most, and less than 40% on the rest.
Which goes to show people who make survey questionnaires are a bunch of knobends.
What, and where. Just in case you can't find it.
He might want to check his heart. It only flashed once. So did all the others. A better title for that comic might be "period".

Instead, people tend nowadays to think of an uprising as the Rapture.
I think you can read his words as "it sure feels like Bitcoin is being unravelled". Boom boom.
Popular and sensationalist ("bottom feeders") are not mutually exclusive.
I suspect the reason why the Washington Post is saying it's a suicide is the same reason the British press reported David Kelly's death as a suicide.
I wouldn't have thought so before but this does now seem to be a concerted effort to discredit virtual currencies.
Windows CE was a solid OS, and instead of farming out the hardware production to PC makers who didn't have the foggiest (HP I'm looking at you), they should have bitten the bullet and made their own PDAs, then later phones.
I started using a PDA with the Psion Series 3a, then the 5, then the 5mx. That was the standard against which I judged my numerous HP iPaqs, and they were very good. HP didn't know what it had though, and let the product line slip, or I'd still be using a Windows pocket computer (with a telephone and camera and GPS unit in it).
Mac on the desktop though. Linux at work. I cannot get along with the shoddy UI problems of Windows on the desktop. It just isn't ready for that role.
Correct. It may resemble a MITM attack, but it's a proxy for pete's sake! To those like the OP who don't quite get this, refer to the agreement you signed for acceptable use of company resources before they allowed you on site.
Your regulations did what, exactly, for the rest of us?
This is a good point, but not for the reason you think it is.
We should consider Bitcoin's repeated failures due to its unregulated nature a warning against deregulating the banks.
Popular my arse. Government care about trillions, not a few hundred thou. Paranoid much?
