Nigh infinite duration.
Poor review with an unfunded regulation body.
A crippling, life-destroying penalties structure.
Fair use? Son? What do you think this is? You're dreaming. Now go to jail! Because we have the patent on that and don't want you using it.
Nigh infinite duration.
Earth is 12,742 km in diameter. The moon is 363,104 km, 28.5 diameters, away at perigee, and 405,696 km, 31.8 diameters, at apogee.
In round numbers the moon is 30 Earth diameters away.
I'd be more inclined to trust the article if they hadn't claimed the moon is 40 earth diameters away from the earth...
Meh. A simple error in the writeup, which I'm sure is not present in the scientific papers.
Eating people alive? Where's that get fun?
The screams... it's all about the screams. And dinner. Think of it as the psychotic version of dine-in movie theaters.
The Earth was Young and Hot. But later, Earth got into drugs and became like Lindsey Lohan.
Yeah, she's in the middle bingeing on a nasty piece of candy called Homo Sapiens right now. It's not pretty and could fuck her up for a few centuries to come.
You might want to look in the mirror.
Scripting languages usually feature dynamic, strong typing. (The runtime always knows exactly what type its dealing with.)
Most compiled languages have static, strong typing. C is somewhat of an exception, being relatively weakly typed. (It's easy to make all sorts of bizarre type casts, sometimes implicitely.)
A few languages are very weakly typed, such as Forth.
The West Antarctic Ice Shelf has already begun its collapse, guaranteeing us 10-12ft of sea level rise over the next 50-200 years (only the timeframe, not the result, remains in question). We have officially lost our "shot at preventing devastating climate change".
We do, however, still have a shot at preventing the necessary abandonment of every major coastal city on the planet, by avoiding another 200ft of sea level rise that would result from the rest of Antarctica melting.
At this point, we need to stop asking how we can go green, and start planning for our new seaside vacation homes in Arizona.
We need to make them stop polluting out galaxy!
We must put an end to these dirty dirty aliens once and for all! Who's with me!
Bring your pitchforks!
I got my pitchfork right here. Let's go!
How are we going to get there, again?
It amazes me that this needs to be pointed out. Using a deity's name in a secular and preferably angry context is one of the fundaments of swearing, by deus.
And one that is generally frowned upon by religious people. The names are essentially anti-religious, not religious, in nature.
other particles we find similar to it could be given normal names like UHE particles, or super high energy rays but that doesnt secure grant funding in the theocratic Mormon state of Utah.
If the state of Utah is theocratic and makes funding decisions based on particle names, choosing blasphemous ones is not the path to big research bucks. Mormons take the prohibition against taking the name of deity in vain pretty seriously.
Or are we going to have to put up with an idiotically asynchronous connection like we already do with DSL (768K) now?
I mean, the smallpox was there, why not the plutonium?
try that defense if you ever get charged with murder.
The mistake I was referring to was smallpox's occasional error in failing to leave a few survivors.
I know, right? We had it so much easier back when we could just write our own interrupt handler (and pray we didn't step on DRAM refresh or vice-versa) to pull bytes directly off the 8250 - And once we had those bytes, mwa-hahaha! We could write our own TCP stack and get the actual data the sender intended, and then do... something... with it that fit on a 40x25 monochrome text screen (yeah, I started late in the game, those bastards working with punchcards spoiled all the really easy stuff for me!).
And now look where we've gone: Anyone using just about any major platform today can fire up a text editor and write a complete moderately sophisticated web app in under an hour. Those poor, poor bastards. I don't know how I can sleep at night, knowing what my brethren have done to the poor wannabe-coders of today. Say, do I hear violins?
Because it has become a meaningless buzzword used to describe every introverted snowflake on the planet?
The GP responded more-or-less appropriately to the TFA's nonsense. You have simply said "nuh-uh!". Substantiate, please.
