look, if you want to act like wesley snipes and put your faith in some completely made up bullshit, have fun. but stop trying to sell insane here, nobody is buying it
i am no friend of the idea of intellectual property, but it doesn't help to be delusional about how law works
The point is that the relationship between sleep and the strength of the immune system has been well know and tested for years...
For a certain value of "well-known" and "tested". You could actually read the paper abstract and see what was novel about this particular study.
Jesus, we wouldn't get anywhere if the world were full of people like you.
Knowing it in principle and knowing when to put that knowledge to work are two different things.
I used to catch *everything* that was going around, including some things most other people didn't. I got sick three, maybe four times a year. I always put it down to having a lousy immune system, until in one checkup I mentioned to my doctor that I'm a pretty loud snorer. "Better have you checked for sleep apnea," he said, and sure enough I had it, although only a relatively mild case. He prescribed sleeping on a CPAP machine, and since I've been doing that I almost never get sick. Maybe once in four years.
Anecdotal evidence, I know, but my point is this. Now that there's research demonstrating the impact of sleep on immune system performance it makes sense to make questions about sleep quantity and quality a routine part of health surveillance. I just happened to mention snoring to my doctor on one visit; if I'd been asked twenty years earlier it would have saved my employers a lot of sick time and me a lot of misery.
A win-win game is not the only kind of non-zero-sum game there is. Suppose I set up a game in which the amount I win is 1/10 of what everyone else loses. I win $100; everyone else loses $1000. If I add up the net gains in the whole game, what we have as a net loss of $900 for all players. It's not fair; it's not reasonable for the community of players to favor such rules, but nonetheless I'm still up $100.
Broken windows may not be a net good thing for the community as a whole, but it certainly is a good thing for the glaziers.
and yet here you are, arguing with me
unconfirmed anecdote by random asshole with questionable opinion is worth exactly what you think it is worth
anyways, i'm glad you enjoyed somalia
what makes you think that there would be no incentive to confirm a blockchain in a system besides bitcoin?
the reward can be almost anything, of which plenty of people would partake, depending upon this alternative blockchain application
I'll bet a lot of people love the fact that all this "free speech" will be taking place hundreds of miles out in the desert...
You don't know people very well then. As Lord Macaulay observed in his The History of England from the Accession of James the Second,
“The Puritans hated bear-baiting, not because it gave pain to the bear, but because it gave pleasure to the spectators.”
You see it is not enough for prigs and busybodies that they're not involved in any way in the things you do that give you pleasure; their problem is with you enjoying something they don't enjoy, or perhaps understand.
There's no such thing as a disaster that's a disaster for everyone. War is a disaster for people in general, but it's great for munitions makers. Hurricanes are no good for the people who live through them, but very good for companies that sell them building materials.
Every catastrophe is a windfall for someone. If the public saves tens of trillions of dollars by slowing down climate change then that's tens of billions of dollars of revenue somebody won't be making.
most of the early bitcoin adopters want the government to prosecute fraud and theft but not regulate finance beyond that
is it you and these other morons believe govt likes to regulate finance in stupid ways just because it is a evil goon from a bad cartoon? "we like to abuse rights only because we have to fulfill the cartoon villain role in the minds of morons"
finance is regulated for many reasons. all of them in ways you want finance regulated! nobody regulates finance just because it's a simple minded villain in a bad hollywood movie. what is the *reason* for the existence of a regulation you dislike. then maybe you fucking need to adjust your dislike, because you clearly don't understand the reason
show me one form of financial regulation which is wrong, somehow. not an example of a regulator fucking up or committing crimes themselves that needs to be punished. "oh, the simple fact they can fuck means the regulation shouldn't exist"... yeah, like because there's bad cops we need to abolish all police. no downside there. how about we actually punish the bad cops and bad regulators? too complicated a concept for you?
give me an example of an actual regulation that is without good reason. at least to give me something to laugh at
i'll put some stock into these magic early adopters you refer to when you show me they understand actual fucking finance, which by your own words you obviously sorely lack an understanding of
you're a gullible airhead fool who doesn't even understand the fucking subject matter
I'm not disputing that China has undercut us, but I'm saying that's in part because they're not a democracy and they don't care what their citizens think as long as they don't express those feelings or act upon them.
thank you, found the one non-idiot in this thread
when writing media was rare and expensive, it was common to remove the original text and write over the pages with new text. the original pages can be decades even centuries older than when they were used to write the quran on them
in fact, in the modern study of ancient texts, it is *common* to find another text hidden underneath, and to use various methods to reveal that second, or even third text, because of writing media reuse
wouldn't it be hilarious if further inspection reveal the original use for the pages of this quran was some ancient christian writings that contradict christian dogma?
LOL. hard religious trolling
Help me, I'm a prisoner in a Fortune cookie file!
