IIRC, science says algae are (to use your expression) the planet's lungs, not trees.
Honesty and ethics was probably not much of a concern.
As it isn't for the majority of politicians. Money is all that matters. I'm not American, but if I were, I would surely join these guys: http://www.wolf-pac.com/
Getting money out of politics should be your (you, citizens) top priority.
Sure, I just quoted the summary. And unfortunately people usually don't grasp the difference between determinism and predictability, as most of the comments here shows. What these fluctuations etc. do is just increase the chaotic behavior.
The same set of inputs will generate the same set of outputs every time.
Yep, that's how humans work. Anybody that had the chance to observe a patient with long-term memory impairment knows that.
From the wikipedia:
[...] self-defense allows a person to use reasonable force in his or her own defense or the defense of others [...]
Please, enumerate the situations where this would be allowed, and the reasonable uses of force as well.
All the hard sciences use math as a tool because they go to the core of the problems, where simplifications that disregard higher order interactions still produce useful and meaningful models. Law is based on rules which describe patterns on systems of any order, mostly higher order social systems. What you're suggesting is to replace the pattern recognition for an enumeration of the possibilities, or how else would you remove the ambiguity? That's not practical.
They're already written in a 'sort of pseudo-code', legalese. Problem is it is very hard to debug and really easy to insert malicious code. But if what you really meant was a language without ambiguity, that seems to be impractical.
Can I ask you what are the algorithms behind this secure voting method? When I watched this presentation I thought he was talking about homomorphic encryption, but after I read about it I realized it couldn't be, since the computation required for processing millions of ballots would be far too much.
The only incompetence is your understanding.
Thank you for the ad hominen.
[...] and you have a second set of plans called As-Builts
Exactly, and it is incompetence to not keep them.
The city also has to pay about $500,000 to a civil engineering firm to determine exactly where the fiber optic cables are buried...
Wtf, don't they have the installation project plans in the first place? This is the kind of incompetence that really pisses me off.
Just start fracking, so all these sewage contamination problems will be minimized. At least in a relative way...
Here's a clue, fella. Decent people think removing a dictator is a good thing, but don't bitch at people who won't do it for them.
And decent people think installing a dictator is a bad thing. Perhaps you are not aware of the influence of the US on the establishment of dictatorial regimes on South America and Asia, go check it out.
The internet is a better place without the smellz. And I would not recommend googling for this post's title.
Nice, so it is a 3 factor authentication! The password, the phone, and if you are using Microsoft products, you are certainly _________. Feel free to fill the blank as you wish.
Clearly what you need is glasses!
