In one exchange, she noticed the man’s password, “Ilovejason,” and was startled by the painful irony.
If she could see a users password, doesn't that mean that FB stores passwords in clear text? Or at least did so a few years ago. Is there any other explanation?
4. Why does Islam prohibit the consumption of pork? Does the holy Q'uran consider that cannibalism?
The general rule is basically that only herbivores may be eaten. Not that bad an idea if you consider the larger risk of diseases and parasites as well as the energy gone to waste if there are additional steps in the food chain.
Chickens are omnivores, just like pigs. The other day I saw a chicken eat a dead mouse (in a TV program where some English guy investigates behavior and intelligence of farm animals).
"The plutonium was in an oxide form about one-tenth of a millimeter in diameter contained in fuel capsule, which itself was inside a graphite and ceramic fuel cask." - Leonard Dudzinski, a NASA program executive.
Is this another example of a NASA guy who doesn't understand metric units, or is the plutonium RTG really just a sphere not much wider than a hair?
The F-35 is a strike fighter. Its job is to blow up various ground targets, and it does this better than the F-22. Again, that is its mission and what it was built to do.
And yet the F-35 is supposed to replace the F-16 on the export market. So many of America's allies are supposed to use this extremely expensive, dedicated bomber/strike-aircraft, as their primary self defense/air defense assert?
I've always thought that the WMD story was an excuse that nobody actually believed in. (To clarify: In 2003 some people may have believed that Saddam had a few WMDs, but nobody believed that those weapons were the real reason we invaded.)
Personally, I agree with that sentiment. Because a lot of people, including me, are sloppy, lazy coders...
Also, I think that PHK distinctly says that he doesn't blame anyone for the giant one-byte mistake.
Yes, but Kepler is a relatively small and cheap telescope that's scheduled to die later next year. And it hasn't found anything really interesting yet (interesting in the context of an ET biology discovery).
In my opinion, attempts to find biological life on a planet outside our solar system. Is much more important than all the other research that NASA does. The robot cars that drive around on Mars are cute, and the pictures that the Cassini–Huygens send back from Saturn are pretty. But a space telescope finding ET life (even if it's just some spectral lines that has to be interpreted by astronomists), would shake the world. So my point is: huge, complicated, difficult, expensive space telescopes, should be the main focus of NASA's efforts. (my 2 cents, anyway. does 2 cents help?)
