That's the Presidential Galaxy. It ages faster than normal due to stress.
They've gone to plaid!
I wish physicists would stop using the word "measurement" when talking about quantum mechanics. To detect fundamental particles we have to interact with them in an intrusive or destructive way.
Hmmm, strangely like the Middle East.
Airplanes that can travel around the galaxy? Wow! Fast progress. How about a Galactic Boat now. And where's my flying car!

While the early search engines indexed largely based on content, Google primarily used hyperlinks to index. And most found it better, making Google the king. It's how they Won the West. Now they are going back to content-centric indexing?
Simple reason: they cook your balls, you have less children, less stress, and live longer.
Technology creates new fields
Yes, I realize that, but will it always be enough to offset the losses? I don't see enough "new fields" to replace lost factory jobs. Retail? That seems like a stretch, but the web and self-checkout technologies are eating into that also. Plus, retail pays lower than factory work.
Road construction, gas stations, repair shops, car factories, etc. clearly offset any loss in the "horse and coach" business. I don't see the equivalent in quantity these days.
It used to be that new technologies created new jobs as it destroyed old ones. But that's merely a historical pattern, not necessarily a law of nature, and it may end.
It's kind of like Moore's Law: it's held so far, but nobody knows if it will keep.
Many conservatives feel that if the gov't doesn't meddle, new jobs will come from somewhere. However, they are slow to name specifics. The few they could name are also ripe for offshoring.
If the Chinese gov't cant find jobs for that many people, bleep will happen. Rioting will likely happen based recent history just after the mortgage crash. They may have to dust off the socialism.
At some point, having a server (like Linode) becomes well worth it. As long as you have a network connection, you can connect to your one development box.
As far as I'm concerned, if it's gravitation is enough to pull it into a sphere, it's a planet
Then we'd have hundreds of "planets".
One could argue that since the definition is arbitrary, including that of "sufficiently round", we might as well stick with the "classic 9".
