Comment Fine (Score 1, Insightful) 663

With the recent *cough* revelations that sodium and dietary fat aren't has harmful as we've heard for the past 40+ years, more research into nutrition is probably a good thing. Granted, this "research" will most likely be heavily biased toward specific conclusions, but maybe (fingers crossed) there's, at least, some new information to be gained. Obviously, nutrition is one area where 20th century "science" failed us.

We talked about this ad naseum back when Chromebooks were about to hit the market. A better question is, why don't keypads (the 10 key-like group of buttons on the right of a PC keyboard) have TAB, SHIFT+TAB and Backspace keys. This would make it much easier to navigate and enter data in web forms and spreadsheets with only one hand. Idunno -- just a thought.

Comment Re:Salad? (Score 1) 4

Nope. Never worked at a restaurant. But, I've shopped at a grocery store. And, do you know what they have at grocery stores. *cough* fucking bags of salad.

Also, rather than placing the ingredients to a salad in this robot's hoppers, do you know another way you could combine them into a fully assembled and ready to eat salad? Hand them to a THREE YEAR OLD and have him mix them. Or, you could toss them into a bowl and... do nothing, because BINGO! There's a salad.

Yep, you're welcome.

Yes, of course. I was talking about my personal role in the matter. If you're one of the people with the telescopes and nukes then, by all means, pay attention. But, outside of that, if there's ever a "deep impact", we're all going to end up in Heaven, Hell, Sto-vo-kor or oblivion anyway. Why concern yourself with that over which you cannot ever hope to have influence? Strife cannot stem the unavoidable.

The nicest thing about the Alto is that it doesn't run faster at night.
