If North Korea got this information and threatened to reveal it, that would definitely explain why Sony caved quicker than the Iraqian army when first attacked by Isis.
The Republican Party has become a simple Rural Party. They protect rural interests, because they found a way to gerrymander rural districts into a majority of congressional districts, despite the majority of the population living in urban areas.
Car dealers are more rural than car manufacturers - as rural areas need more dealers per person than urban dealers, while car manufacturers in a single urban environment can supply the entire country.
As such, the GOP will support the car dealers at the expense of the car manufacturers.
When applying for actual jobs pick the entry level ones and push your passion.
That way you can get into actual space industry.
Before you fly, you can glide. Before you can glide, you can slow your fall. Before you can slow your fall, you can use it to warm/cool your body. Spread the partial wing in the shade when hot and you increase surface area, cooling yourself down. Do the same in the sun and you get more warmth
Basically, if the effect is really mostly useless than that also means it is not particularly bad - such as being born an albino. Albinos live fine lives, with just a few problems. Having a minor problem does not stop you from living OR breeding.
The problem is you are not smart enough (no one is - except perhaps god) to understand all the intervening steps.
You don't 'give up' teeth, you get a mutation and are stuck with it. They are not making conscious decisions to evolve, that is just plain ignorance. If you can find a way to survive without the teeth, you continue on. Eventually you get another mutation, and maybe it evolves to take the place of something you lost.
Birds found a way to survive without teeth before they gained a beak. Possibly it was those rocks some birds swallow and use to grind up large chunks of food (I don't know when or if all do this).
Maybe teeth became a liability. People used to die from a rotten tooth, maybe there was an epidemic of bird tooth infecting microbes. It doesn't matter.
As for gender based on-single cell organism, you have that wrong also. Sex evolved from eating - the victim's genes survived inside the single cell that tried to eat it, and it's grew from there. At that point all those single celled life forms were hermaphrodite - they could eat or be eaten and their DNA would survive in the eater. Eventually, the hermaphroditic single celled life forms developed into two varieties - one that could eat and absorb the DNA (female) and the other that could be eaten and pass on their DNA (male).
Also there was no clear line between single celled life forms and multicelluar life forms. First came colonies that learned to cooperate but could also survive on their own.
I want to suggest a better method. I want to go with a two factor system — either token based or phone based (LaunchKey, Clef, Nok Nok). Does anyone have any advice on specific systems — or points I should bring up? Or alternatives such as graphical based passwords?"
If we didn't have a Van Allen belt, some bright scientist would say no life could survive on earth, because of the radiation.
Life as we know it evolved to deal with earth. It evolved to live with at atmosphere, with a van allen belt protecting it, with limited meteors strikes (because Jupiter protected us), with our sun, with tides, etc. etc. etc. etc.
Just because we can't deal with a series of Gamma Ray burst does not mean living creatures living under an ice ocean, feeding on volcanic energy can't survive it.
Basically, what's going on here is some one asked a Physicist a question about biology. You get an answer that makes about as much sense as if you ask Stephen Hawking if the tumor in your kidney is benign or malignant.
The value of gold is only high for people. Cows don't care about gold.
All valuation assumes that there are people in that same location. If they are not there, then the value is always $0.
Worth is dependent upon location. Gold buried under 600 tons of radioactive lava is worthless.
Water in a desert is priceless.
Water and high purity plutonium located in outer space are worth far more than gold in that same location.
Every single car executive knows that is what happens and there is no way they are going to make the same mistake that American car companies made in the 70's and 80's all over again.
We screwed up the ozone layer but are already well along the way to fix it. reference
We can create conditions favorable for earthquakes (fracking) and we can redirect lava flows. reference
The reason why people think climate can not be engineered is ignorance.
The differences are more along the lines of:
1) You often don't know code is bad - or how to write good code - until after you have done the work once. So effectively it can take twice as long to write the good code - once to write it badly, then again to write it well.
2) Good code usually requires a good working environment. You can never write good code while your boss is demanding you hurry up and finish the project.
