Yeah, but "living in a large aluminum ball in his parents' basement" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.
Science has not proved and cannot prove that Quantum Entanglement is a real phenomenon, because it cannot be measured: as soon as one measures the particles, the entanglement is destroyed.
Furthermore, science has not proved that quantum entanglement is particles linked or particles created symmetrically. For all we know, entangled particles may be born in symmetrical state and not be linked at all.
Thirdly, we haven't even proved that a single photon is a wave. We have shown that a stream of light particles acts as a wave, through the double slit experiment, but not an individual photon.
We also have not proved that the interference pattern we are seeing in the double slit experiment is not due to spacetime ripples that create certain paths for photons to travel to instead of photons being waves.
In the double slit experiment, if the slits are turned sideways or become circular or rectangular, the interference pattern on the projector changes accordingly.
However, if the slits are enlarged, the interference pattern ceases.
This means that what actually happens is that there is a collision of photons with the slits, when the slits are small enough. When the slits are enlarged, there is no collision, and therefore no interference pattern.
When we put a detector between the electron/photon gun and the slits, the electron/photon emitted by the gun is absorbed by the detector and reemmited from the other side of the detector in a straight line, because the detector and the slits form a straight geodesic line, and thus the emitted electron/photon goes straight through the slit and does not collide with the slit walls.
I bet that if the detector is placed right where the opening hole of the electron/photon gun is, and the slits are moved slowly away from the detector, the interference pattern will reemerge, showing that there is no wave function to collapse, and thus proving that QM is the best error mankind ever did.
That still does not answer the question of measuring the value or harm of the content and whether it is worth protecting at public expense, nor paying the cost of that fair and reasonable test. Copyprivilege should not be automatic but must pass a public test and pay the cost of that test, to ensure that the cost to society of that artificial unjust protection is measured as being of true value to that society.
Have you tried looking at it without pushing your face into the screen yet?
What needs to be carefully looked at is interpretive laws and the way they actually work in application. The rich basically use their wealth and lawyers to abuse the poor. Not only can the rich most abusively annoy the poor and get away it, they can also claim any imaginable action of the poor is annoying and ensure the poor are punished for it.
Just to be clear about an understanding of annoyance. A criminal runs up and shoots people in a bank and takes the money. Now don't you think that criminal finds in annoying when police investigate the matter, find out who did it, hunts the criminal down and arrests them. Don't you think the criminal finds the prosecution, judge and jury annoying when the evidence in presented and the criminal is successfully prosecuted. Now don't you think the criminal is extremely annoyed by the correctional services people who will not let the criminal run free to able to commit more crimes.
Be very, very careful of the legal dance with the idea of annoyance because the most glaring example, don't you think investors find it annoying when unions demand better wages and conditions for their workers, extremely annoying, let alone an actual strike. Don't corrupt politicians find protesters to be extremely annoying and look those corrupt politicians actually do seek to prosecute those people expressing their political rights under what are basically annoyance laws under another name.
That's more or less what West Germany has been founded on since the late '40s. Germany traded its sovereignty for an end to denazification. The deal was: 1) a bunch of ex-Nazis would be allowed to remain in the FRG government; but 2) in return, they would work for the USA.
Don't you get it, it works the American way. Eye for an Eye. One person from a country attacks me, then I am allowed to attack anyone from that country for any reason and in any way, as well as attack all those from that country who would try to stop be attacking some one in that country.
So in computer parlance, let's all play the electromagnetic pulse game because that is really going to work so well for everyone.
Here is a question and what point does a countries espionage agents cease to be their agents and become more accurately double agents working for another country. So did German intelligence do this or did German nationals working as American espionage agents do this. The law would say, that they were not German Agents but American agents who happened to be German nationals working in German intelligence services. The exact same thing applies to most of the others in one eyed, eight blind mice group.
Those double agents are not working in the interests of their country, they are working in the interests of the corrupt US corporations that control the US government. Imagine nine countries intelligence services all managing the global fuck up that has been the 'WAR ON TERROR'. Now how many of them were actually treasonously 'in the know'.
The most noticeable thing about abusive law enforcement actions in the US, only the law enforcement (let's be clear the US does not have police it has law en-FORCE-ment). Not really US law enforcements fault, not really. Some one else is selecting the people to become law enforcers, somebody is training to poor selections to be law enforcers, somebody is setting policy for those poorly selected and badly trained law enforcers, to ensure they act as revenue generating law enforcers. Take a long hard look at the difference between law enforcers in Conservative Government zones and police in Progressive zones. Not just locally but globally, yep, the people you select to run government are smooth talking, self serving, idiotic fuck ups, who are only capable of knee jerk simplistic thinking and voila you get the results you would expect.
The American reaction is like blaming all dogs for some dogs being bad. There is a huge difference in selection and training for a guide dog for the blind and a junk yard guard dog. Conservative American politicians in their ignorance and stupidity are putting junk yard dogs out on the street and getting the results you would expect.
Amongst the over 55s American Exceptiolism runs rife. Their viewpoint, who gives a shit what the NSA were doing to foreigners, foreigners are all sub human only Americans, well, certain Americans are actually human and should get human rights. This extends to foreign countries, only Americans have rights in foreign countries and those foreigners, 'er', 'um', it is up to their government to provide them rights 'AGAINST' the actions of the American government or American Corporations (with tiny defence forces and no nukes, snark, snark, if they try we will kill all that resist and they do exactly that and then fucking celebrate it). Regardless of anything they will say when answering a survey. That is the reality of American exceptional and America has no allies as far as those Americans are concerned, no country whose citizens have rights within their own country if those rights would in any way infringe about Americans in any way shape or form, no matter how much those actions are against the law in American (only when applied to American citizens, well, most citizens of course, exceptions being pretty bloody obvious). Thanks to the internet, America is pretty much advertising exactly this to the rest of the world, winning hearts and minds, not so much.
So, if popular culture approves of and encourages it, can't blame the cops too much for doing it despite it being merely illegal...
Let us know how well that "can't blame me, I saw it in a movie" defense works out for you.
Somebody at work told me he heard that Apple is refusing to accept Apple Watch apps from developers who sell the same apps for Pebble
Did he also tell you to charge your phone in the microwave? Maybe invest in some oceanfront property in Kansas?
You don't have to get an iWatch anymore than you need a FitBit. Asking why anyone would want to use either, though, is "so lacking in originality as to be obvious and boring.".
Obligatory Head of Vecna story. They didn't think about the meaning of the location of the brain....
In Spock's Brain, they could have taken Spock's entire head. Or, why not just kidnap Spock? Grab first, then take brain out. Or, or, if they have the technology to remove a brain intact, and reprogram it to serve their purposes, wouldn't that imply the ability to just copy it or make up their own brain? Oh well, that episode is unfixably bad anyway.
