Even if they don't... this causes an extra 1.5 seconds per user to aim at and then click the "FREE PREVIEW" link. Multiply this by millions of views, and you're talking about hundreds of extra hours of viewing. Google Analytics can measure the average time spent on a page (as well as page views, thus total cumulative time), which can, in theory, translate into varying advertising rates.
If everyone would use ad-blocker, every website would have to enable paywalls on their sites. I'm refusing to use ad-blockers by principle.
The only impression I get is that Slashdot tries to get more page views by forcing users to click the "FREE PREVIEW" link to RTFS, and thus get more advertising dollars. Very lame attempt to monetize April Fool's and doesn't bring me a hint of a smile. Slashdot, I expected better from you.
Clearly, it must have been aliens!
Calm down, you sensitive sprout. In that case, you stand in from of A screen, and also stand in front of another one.
It didn't ask how much time did you stand in front of ONE screen.
That's like if someone asked you: Do you have a car?
I HAVE TWO CARS, you insensitive clod!
They are estimating, not claiming a precise number. I know people don't RTFA on Slashdot, sometimes not even RTFS (read the fucking summary), but it's gotten to the point that they don't even RTFT now? (read the fucking title)
Am I the only one who is suddenly stuck with a Dr. Robotnik / Metal Sonic from Sonic the Hedgehog song stuck in my head now?
If his mom couldn't buy the guns legally, he might have had a harder time getting guns, since his mom's supply might not be an option anymore. It doesn't make it impossible, but that small chance that he would have stopped might have made it worthwhile to the 20+ dead.
The U.S. government has better legal things to worry about than a few potheads getting high legally. Perhaps like, for instance, mentally-unstable individuals able to obtain semi-automatic assault riffle, also legally, and killing 28 individuals at a public school. Just sayin'.
No, it's Cowboy Neal's mom. She's so big, she can't even stay into orbit.
^ if I had mod points I'd +1 you insightful.
Does anyone else recall Felix Baumgartner telling mission control he felt no heating from his helmet?
At that point, the audio was cut from the live stream while we could see the mission control discussing it.
When audio came back about 30 seconds later, neither mission control nor the commentator even mentioned the incident.
Just now, the commentator mentioned that they're "troubleshooting" the issue, not knowing if it was the senor not working or the heating actually not working.
It's around 12C in the capsule, but outside it would be -45C plus wind factor of several hundred km/h. If the heat in his helmet is really not working, I guess they probably will abort the jump?
Most liberals have iphones? since when?
I'm pretty sure most liberals have androids.
Just like most conservatives have androids.
In fact I'll just say that most people have android phones.
