Arkanoid had an actual backstory, for $DIETY's sake. That puts it about 1,000,000 miles ahead of Tetris.
And more accurate, for very little more typing, for GPP to have typed "I don't know anything about Ebola, but I'm scared and loud!"
Right. It's April 1st Old Style*.
They recoilled away from Soviet Communism so hard they overshot back into Tsarist Imperial Russia.
*No, not really. Don't be whoosed by a feeble calendar joke. The bit about 21st Century Tsarist Russia, though, that was serious.
Maybe an immigrant traveling back to the home country for a visit.
Maybe to attend a funeral.
Meanwhile, typos and poor editing still done by a drunk marmoset.
No, wait. A drunk marmoset would actually be a significant upgrade. Give it a chance!.
It's approaching troll event horizon, with trolls trolling trolls who troll trolls trolling other trolls. Ridiculous.
On one hand, I'd welcome empirical evidence that black holes actually exist, even if it requires every troll on Earth to do it. OTOH, 4chan has spewed forth many notable elements of on-line culture, so its loss would be lamentable. Sorta.
The fluid then squirts out through a rear-facing nozzle as the membrane contracts. To the team's surprise, the robot reached speeds of 10 body lengths per second with a peak acceleration of 14 body lengths per second squared. That's unprecedented in an underwater vehicle of this kind. What's more, the peak force experienced by the robot was 30 per cent greater than the thrust generated by the jet. The team think they know why and say the new technique could be used to design bigger subs capable of even more impressive octopus-like feats.
Probably. Funerary practices in that part of the world are very home-centered, generally administered by the grieving family. That's a major current transmission route, and its emotional and traditional base gives it resistance to quarantine pressures. No one is just going to pile corpses outside waiting for the body cart, if they've spent weeks locked away caring for their dying loved one.
Dealing with the dead is a big part of epidemic management, and "doing it right" (to minimize infectiousness) is expensive, as well as insensitive to the survivors. So yeah, the dead will continue to infect the living, until it burns itself out, or until someone imposes draconian responses.
Corollary: Anything done late by Apple wasn't cool until Apple did it.
Corollary corollary: Unless Apple claims it was never done before Apple did it, objective reality notwithstanding. Because it didn't count, or the RDF makes the faithful forget, or "No true Scotsman", or whatever.
Harvest their organs for the long organ donor list and they'll have contributed to society for once in their now terminated life.
Certain intelligent people have already explored where that idea ends up.
Executive summary: you better never get caught jaywalking, because there are dozens of people who think they have a claim on your vital organs thay you do.
Their DNS root and primary router will be KREMVAX.
The US Air Force is contemplating retiring the KC-10 as it takes on the new KC-46 (tankerized cargo Boeing 767) so that they can continue to maintain only two tanker types in the fleet.
If you think like a cell in a Corporate Person, it's a critical distinction.
It's why you can't sentence a corporation to death, as much as it might be deserved.
So, yes. It's a distinction that makes no difference to the user, but every difference to the corporation.
And, at the end of the day, we all know whose interests the corporation is looking out for.
