Well... It's leaning in the same sense that I did when I accidentally hit my thumb with a hammer and my grandfather said that I should try and not do that again - and that he had learned that solution himself in his younger days. Grandfathers are often helpful like that.
Leon should have kept his cool, like Rachael did later, as it turns out the Voight-Kampff test is checking whether someone is a Lesbian, not a Replicant.
It uses a built-in microphone to amplify a parent's voice through speakers in the back seats.
Made me think of the "Better Off Ted" episode, "Bioshuffle" (Season 1, Episode 9):
- Ted: So, what is it?
- Phil: We call it "The Voice of God."
- Ted: No, we don't.
- Phil: No, we don't.
- Linda: Field testing shows that the subject, or "victim," as I like to call people "helped" by Veridian Technology, can be hundreds of feet away and will hear the message as though it's being whispered only to them.
- Phil: It's highly persuasive. Advertising companies are very excited because it will allow them to burrow even deeper into the human brain.
- Phil: At full power, the sound wave is so intense it can cause vomiting.
- Ted: A machine that causes vomiting. Well, that could have all kinds of applications for the military... and fashion modeling.
I mean, at least they didn't ink a deal with the guys in charge of the Fifth Element. We would all be required to carry a MULTI-PASS!
That's "Mul-Ti-Pass" and, yes, they know it's a Multipass.
[ One of my favorite movies BTW. Anyone know if it's a significantly better experience on Bluray than on DVD (or even Superbit DVD)? ]
... but no one has ever followed through on making open systems look and behave like an IBM mainframe,
But I'll need a punch-card station and reader, build out my server room with a glass service window, hire a disinterested, snarky guy to retrieve printouts
Is there any form of math for which no match to anything in reality exists? Not for a specif application of math (which may not fit), but a specific field of math or a theorem, which has no application to reality?
He can't. Jeff Sessions is a Republican in the Senate. Harry Reid is single handedly deciding on what gets to the Senate floor for a vote and what does not. Until Reid chooses to do something about it, nothing can be done in the Senate. Sessions is attempting to shame everyone who is preventing something from being done.
With Reid as Senate Majority leader there will be no free market. A free market might allow people to not be dependent on government hand outs and he can't allow that to happen.
Similar arguments (about this and other things) can be made about Speaker of the House John Boehner and the House Republicans. Obstinate, obstructive, short-sighted, selfish, petty people can be found many places in Congress.
Companies get their resources where they are cheapest, regardless if this is parts or people.
But, but, but... Every company I've ever worked for has touted how their employees are their most valuable asset. Were they fibbing to me? Sigh. Now I'm sad.
I would prefer a third hand, with one more hand you can do much more than with just two additional fingers.
That's what she said.
I completely agree. My point was simply that many companies, and, from my experience, Verizon in particular, don't care one bit about their customers, especially when profits/bonuses are concerned - doubly true with regard to their employees. Despite what nay-sayers think, government has a role to play in the operation of the free market.
A better way of thinking of it is that Verizon should be representing the interests of its customers,
Nice sentiment, but, unfortunately, a public corporation's responsibility is to its shareholders and their interests - which is simply $$$. (and probably executives and cushy bonuses, etc...)
Systemd definitely solves a problem that exists. Unfortunately, it solves it in the same way that a nuclear warhead solves the problem of rat infestation.
To be fair, systemd have never irradiated anyone, like Godzilla - yet.
(Though, we should all fear the day it does...)
... physicists have always still wondered what really gives particles mass
< Insert "yo mama" joke here. >
It'd be even better if we could put them into 'Senior Citizen' mode, where they randomly speed up and slow down, and change lanes without signalling.
Or, more accurately, stay in the same lane with the blinker on for miles and miles...
What you can do is write a review that is so incredible positive, that the irony is so obvious that nobody will miss it.
Ya, nobody will miss the irony, humor, etc... 'cause that always works *so* well with
