Because the world is perfect and none of our code ever had bugs or design flaws? And people never hype their crap, actively mislead and deceive us?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!

Wikipedia has a list of games based on ASCII art graphics, hope it helps.
And why would Journal Peer... review her?
Pretty sure if you look at a map you will see that the vast majority of our discoveries were ON THE WAY to China, haha, or entirely in the opposite direction, across the Atlantic Ocean
Like, you know, the entirety of Africa, India, and Brazil?
We certainly didn't discover the Bering Strait or anything up north. Beyond China, we went to Japan and Indonesia and that's about it.
Also, a corrupt leadership sets an example.
Or just use a Privacy Mode in your favorite browser.
If your electricity still largely comes from fossil fuels you must not live in a very progressive country... or maybe you're not up-to-date on the latest statistics.
There will be no point to having a "youthful" old age if we will still become more conservative as we grow old, and in our misguided attempts to stay relevant, end up preventing the world from changing, just to keep things familiar.
On making people slightly less miserable for the 99% of their lifespan that's actually worth living. And providing palliative care to people who are dying, so they won't suffer needlessly. Or simply legalizing euthanasia so people can have the freedom to choose to die with dignity.
What could i possibly print that I don't already have?
Most people in developed countries already have enough crap lying around.
I have a publicly accessible timeline (you do know that privacy settings are per-post, right?), where I post things like inspirational quotes, and write about the value of hard work, and things that I believe a prospective employer might be interested in. I do post stuff as "friends-only" and designate some people as "acquaintances". In general, on or off the internet, I do not traffic in subjectivity. I have better things to do than pontificate about politics or the controversy du jour. Idle coffee shop philosophizing is for those without the trained mind of a scientist. The truth is knowable, stop speculating and look it up
I have been contacted by prospective employers via Facebook, actually. The highest-paid job I ever had was from an old Facebook friend who started his own business.
He made something that a lot of people like. If you make something that a billion people like, and charge them a dollar each, you become a billionaire. Accepting a fixed salary at zero risk is entirely your choice.
You have no guarantee of deriving any value from a payment made in stock. As per TFA Schmidt's stock vests in 4 years. In 4 years, he might not even be alive. Google's stock value could drop 1000% (dot com bust, anyone?). And you can certainly not sell immense amounts of stock in one go, or you'll drive the price down.
Bacon-wrapped back bacon is still bacon-wrapped bacon. Does this mean that by repeating "bacon" too many times I have rendered the sentence invalid? Please. You can never have too much bacon.
Nooo! Radioactive waste is warm, it would melt the ice
You could pump the water out and allow it to freeze on the surface. Cover the damn thing with solar panels - less sun to reach the surface and melt the ice.
Water usually falls through cracks and lubricates the ground beneath the glaciers.
If we can remove the water maybe they won't slide into the ocean, and won't raise sea levels?
