Not all that well in Python's case, but if 2.6 sucked as bad as PHP does now, there might be more urgency. And Perl 6 might get a bit more traction when and if it starts existing.
Not sure if they are connected but they used to send real mail to try and trap people into renewing/transferring with them. So it only takes 14+ years for ICANN to do something?
I know, motherfuckers act like they forgot about DRA.
You're right of course. I took the AC to mean that negative quantities don't exist objectively, which is a different issue. I may have misunderstood.
Uh, yeah, we can measure -1. The charge of an electron. The distance along the x-axis that I travel when I walk one meter west. The effect on a wave when it encounters an identical one 180 degrees out of phase.
And if negative numbers worry you, this will blow your mind: by all indications, the way things really work, at the quantum level, is unavoidably governed by complex numbers. Don't let that "imaginary" label fool you...those bastards are really real, too. Sorry.
Put down the Left Behind novels and step slowly away.
In all the ways that really matter (fiscal policy, economic policy, regulation, law enforcement, etc...), the candidates are identical.
I think you've taken a valid point and stretched it a little far here. If we'd had eight years of Gore starting in 2000, do you think Iraq would have played out exactly the same? If we were on our way to eight years of McCain starting in 2008, do you think the trends in health insurance would be what they are?
Whether you approve or disapprove, you have to agree they'd have been different.
in fact some are trying to say that no cooking is allowed to make me go out and blow all my dough on restaurants
Are you sure this isn't total bullshit?
I can't take anything seriously after that.
I think you can fit at least two more commas in there.
It's still a shitty comparison. The whole point is to give the reader an intuitive sense of an otherwise unimaginable quantity. It should be a red flag when you've replaced the number 500 with 40,000.
I was unsure about this, too, but now I know it's about 1/40,000 of a 500 mile road trip. Thanks, Slashdot!
I don't think the text of the Aereo ruling was "nobody is allowed to use loopholes anymore."
Me too. I hope it hurts.
I did. Happiest thought I've had all year.
they have used a cheap, well-known material to create the most heat-hungry thermoelectric so far
Did they do it with one weird trick discovered by a mom?
