There are several slide rule apps available on Apple App Store - probably some Android apps out there too. Just saying they exist.
Try out Don't Starve. Nice Indie Game. Steam or Chrome App. Like a crossover between Legend of Zelda and Minecraft.
No, they should have put cocaine at the other end. Then we'd know for sure if Oreos are as addictive as cocaine. A simple test made complex by lack of the right resources.

That word doesn't mean what you think it means.
Jesus existence is pretty much a fact - everything else about him, not so much. The comparison with Snowden in terms of what we actually know may be apt. It's unlikely that we will ever know all of the facts about Snowden and many details that are filled in later will be questionable.
FairPlay is what the parent was thinking of. It's the DRM that limits you to 5 device authorizations but with unlimited lossy "burns" and 10 playlists with unlimited "burns".
It actually wasn't that burdensome - some might say "fair" but the reality was/is that people are happy with lossy lower quality mp3s so the unlimited part was a loophole that voided the DRM in practice. Apple abandoned it ASAP and opted to simply make buying tracks easier than pirating them. Worked pretty well.
In Soviet Russia it collapses you!
The US has ~316 Million people. 5% have a net worth of 1M or more. ~20% are below the poverty line w no assets and less than 28k annual income, 1.2% live on less than $2 per day. 20% are working poor (no assets), 40% are working/middle class and 15% are upper middle class.
So you have 20% (rich and upper middle class) that have a quality education or personal drive aka self educated. Let's add in 10% to account for the top of the middle class, educated but lacking in opportunity or ambition or just not there yet.
30% of 300 Million, so 100 Million people with a 16 Million buffer. Let's take out the children and elderly, so we're left with 60% of that number (under 20 is ~28% and over 85 is ~12%) or 60 Million.
Unemployment is at 7.5% so we're at 45 Million.
I can't find a good source of jobs by industry at the moment (should be on bureau of labor site somewhere), so I'll just throw out 10% as a rough percentage of people who might be involved in something technical or scientific where they could be innovative in some way.
4.5 Million. Let's cut that in half to 2.25 Million for no good reason and then let's take 2% of that = 45k. That's 45 thousand people who could be starting up the next Apple, Google, etc. It really only takes a few people at the top to provide leadership.
What's my point? I don't know, but whatever it was I showed my work.
The AAC is already funded, hence the attempts to de-fund it.
The parent post is highly overrated.
I could be wrong but he's likely talking about the 39% of the welfare recipients who are white (and clearly poor).
You are correct but you're still an idiot. Now that you are unemployed and have no healthcare and potentially have pre-existing conditions, you better hope and pray for a change in attitude from the remainder of the House majority. A few days of slow business didn't get you layed off - it was going to happen anyways, this just happened to be a convenient time to do so.
So where does that leave you? COBRA for a few months if you're lucky under existing law and then you get to be a single person (or family) negotiating with a multinational insurance corporation. Have you done that before? If not I'll tell you a trick, lube up real good before you go begging, cause you're going to need it.
OTOH come Jan 1st, you'll get to join up with millions of others just like you and with your combined negotiating power you will be able to get a much much better deal, better in fact than any Corporate plan. Better because you will be paying less than what you plus the Corp would pay (yes they pay for some percentage of the policy, the individual typically pays less than 50%, depending on the size of the group).
Don't be an idiot. Realize that economies of scale are real and that group plans are better than individual plans, regardless of who manages the group enrollment policy.
So you plan to ignore all books written in the future? 65k sounds like a lot but really unless you have no preferences and read simply to kill time, there are maybe 2k titles in there (and a lot of stuff you won't like but someone else will). Good luck with that.
They both make sense in that there is redundancy. Add the Soyuz with its human transport and escape pod and you've got a pretty good justification for keeping the ISS going. Without all three the ISS becomes a liability rather than an asset.
Sounds like a thesis. Go get a grant.
