What do you think the anal probes are for that the Greys use when they abduct us?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Our closest cousins among the great apes sure do as well:
Truly spoken by someone with a seven digit ID. Anything about dinosaurs or related kin is definitely News for Nerds and as such is Stuff that Matters to many of us who wouldn't have seen it otherwise. Now, get off my lawn.
You're probably better off. Working for the big Silicon vendors is over rated. You can make a six figure income working for a small firm, as well, without the hype and hyperbole.
Actually the main purpose is to wound as many enemies as you can. Each wounded soldier takes 2-3 support people to care for them. The purpose of engaging in battle is to gain the specific objective (hill, town, city) as described by the mission objectives. A lot of killing takes place, yes, but it's actually the wounded that count the most from a tactical standpoint.
Helping makers of internal combustion engines create more efficiencies certainly does help direct competitors of Musk's.
Tell that to the failed Mars Climate Orbiter. If we'd settled on one set of units (either would be fine) it probably wouldn't have been lost.
I'm not sure where you got that one. The only credible theory related to it is the Chicxulub crater, which is on the Southern edge of the Gulf, near the Yucatan Peninsula. That's what's left by the impact that many believe killed most of the dinosaurs, as well as many other species. It's not even close to the size of the whole Gulf. What theories are you talking about?
It is just another example of shoddy tech/science journalism, to use the latter term loosely. Sensationalism gets people to click.
He just described it incorrectly. You don't have to be a douche about it. It ionizes a small area of the air, creating a 'plasma field' (their words) that disrupts the shock wave.
Grumpy? Not at all. You wouldn't want to see that; nobody does
It's just an example of a solution looking for a problem and thus opening the doors to more potential problems.
I'd rather make my own security decisions. I don't need the 'AI' in my phone deciding if it's me or not.
I didn't do anything of the sort. It 'doesn't necessarily' disqualify an applicant is all I said. It does not. The converse of that is it also often does.
It is not illegal to deny employment on the basis of criminal background. That's the very reason so many employers do background checks. It doesn't necessarily disqualify a person but it certain can be used in the decision making process.
Few if any corporations have ethics. They generally (not always) do what is legal, but not necessarily what is ethical, and almost never what is morally correct. They exist for one purpose and that is to make a profit.
