Doubtful. However irrelevant because Inman is the biggest Douchebag since Edison.
Tesla didn't invent AC.
Tesla Sued Marconi over the patents, which is the opposit of letting him use them
Heinrich Hertz invented radar,
Alexander Popov implemented it first.
XRays where being observed and manipulated by dozens of inventor around the world. in 1887 pulyie was creating xrays, a decade before Tesla. Tesla did invent a unique way to create them, and he should get credit for that, but he did NOT discover them.
Tesla warned about the dangers, and didn't use them for medical purposes. So, he was completely shorted sight on that front.
FitzGerald came of with the earth frequency.
Tesla never mentioned ball lightning in any of his writing or speaking There is no record from his time is known to exist stating that he created, or even knew about anything that could reasonably be called ball lightning
Tesla didn't invent anything the can rain down electricity.
The Oatmeal is just a reiteration of pop culture myth.
And the Oatmeal comply ignores is actual important inventions.
And when someone calls him on it, Inman turns into a insufferable prick.
That's not, how it works, dear. You make a statement, you provide proof.
I don't care what you think. It's up to you if you want to learn something. I already did my intro economics course.
That most of the academics are erring on the side of the bigger government is a known fact
Yep, all that learning and study, and trying to figures stuff out leads to a well known liberal bias.
If sanctions are not effective, why are they used so avidly against Iran?
Well...there you go again, bringing up inconvenient questions.
I think the answer is, sanctions work in Iran because it's just a bunch of muslims getting hurt, but they don't work in South Africa because some rich white racists lost money.
Mandela pleaded with the world to keep the sanctions in place against the apartheid South African government. He pleaded with Thatcher and Reagan to support those sanctions, and for his troubles they labeled him a "terrorist" and did everything they could to thwart the end of apartheid.
Before he passed, he also stated a preference for the PS4 over the Xbone.
I distinctly remember a bad ass sniper on the Battlefield 3 servers with the gamer tag, "M4ND1BA69". You don't think...
The bill actually does touch on the style of patent litigation used by big tech companies:
But a number of voices, most with vested interests, have been scrambling to protect the trolls even with the concerns of the big trolls taken into account with the reduction of the bill's impact on "covered business methods." This part of patent law is used more by large corporate patent holders and thus opposed by the likes of IBM, Microsoft, General Electric, and Adobe.
If a single pellet leaves you property, are you prepared to take full responsibility?
Man bites dog is news, dog bites man is not.
No, it will just harm people who don't have money to quickly get their patent into the market. It's another FU to small inventor, just like the last patent reform.
Of course, no one has actually made any good reasoning why getting licensing for someone to use a patent is some how bad.
So, when Thatcher and Reagan participate in "bombing campaigns" it's "fighting for liberty" but when Mandela does it, they call it terrorism. Yes, that sounds like what you're saying.
Thatcher was "resorting" to her own campaign of violence in Ireland, and Reagan, disappointed that he didn't have a real war to fight, sent the marines to invade, uh, Grenada.
South Africa was enormously helped by the influence of Nelson Mandela. Both the UK and the US were left worse off by the influence of Thatcher and Reagan, (may they burn in Hell).
Reagan & Thatcher opposed "sanctions". They didn't support apartheid.
They supported the apartheid government, which is the same thing. It's like saying you support the German government in 1939, but you don't support Nazis.
Both Reagan and Thatcher called Mandela "terrorist" well after the world could see the truth. They were trying to hold on to the last vestiges of white colonial Africa. May their names be erased from the Book of Life.
Wow, you slid right down that slope into crazyville.
Why do you assume they need to be used for all deliveries in all environments?
I can think of many specialized delivery systems as well as Amazons.
no, they can't. A few of them can.
Except skills set doesn't mean more jobs for people when robots can be built with the skill set.
Automation has been creating a market where fewer worker get more done.
This is going to happen, we, as society, need to deal with that, and we will have, in simple terms, two options. People work to get money in a world where fewer and fewer people needed to do the work and 50 million fewer jobs for humans, of we create a Communist society where the robots are the workers.
