While it could happen (technically almost anything can happen in an infinite universe), it is far more likely that the Swedish Women's Volleyball team will burst into your room in the next five seconds and give you death by snu-snu.
It's called 'Ask Slashdot' for a reason. What better group of people to ask than a group of geeks with diverse backgrounds? It's attitudes like yours that keep people from asking for help when they need it.
You say all that almost as if you're proud that you abuse the hell out of your heart.
Technology doesn't just magically appear. It is worthwhile research that if it pans out could have some really wide ranging medical applications.
If you would bother to read before shooting off your mouth you'd see that there are plenty of potential applications. It's not just being done for the 'cool' factor.
Because if you're sitting sedentary writing code and your heart rate is 90+ you're going to have a rather short life of writing code. That's why you should care.
Mate selection is just one reason. Controlling resources is another.
I think the wording is just off. The 'basal Europeans' are most likely descendants of the Cro Magnon with a sprinkling of Neaderthal. The original stock most likely was from an earlier migration out of Africa.
As much as I detest the man, Harry Reid has nothing to do with the State Legislature, other than perhaps some back channel clout with certain lawmakers. This is a State thing, not a Federal thing.
Slashdot cracks me up
Red faced and angry about the coming Surveillance State
Damned happy to have every cop be a walking surveillance unit
Anybody else see the irony?
Riiiight, because it's better to leave it as is. The word of the police vs the word of the citizen. They are already surveilling us. Cameras on cops is a means to at least attempt to keep them honest and provide a record when abuses of power occur.
Electronics? Really? Those are just things. They can be replaced. My data is backed up and can be restored. The things to worry about are food, medical supplies, and water. We always have about a month's worth of food and water stored away in the event of some sort of disaster. I don't give a fuck about my electronic devices. I care about the life and well being of myself and my wife, and like I said data can be restored.
I somewhat agree, but it could help tell us where to focus other search efforts.
Anyone who thought that Germany's protests over surveillance was anything other than hypocritical bullshit is an idiot. All countries spy on all other countries. They always have and they always will.
Humans in general have been greedy and hate riddled since before written history.
I love my Transformer for a number of reasons. It's really a tiny laptop, for one. I don't do a lot of document editing on it but I can and have. I can plug a USB->Serial cable into it and console into firewalls, routers, etc. I can VPN in to either work or home then use RDP to do real work if I have to. The gaming part is just icing on the cake. I sometimes travel a lot and having a lightweight Netflix/Gaming device is a huge boon to me.
