Yes, I think lasers are a necessary component.
Only where sharks are involved.
Agreed, which is why I get really annoyed with Python bigots. My main exposures to python have been trash piles like Anaconda and cowboy crap that is seven layers of libraries to implement and process check that has such poor syntax that it can't even fail, no matter how screwed the process.
Give me "unsophisticated" and/or heavily commented code, thank you.
Personally I can write legible perl, but with vbscript you have the choice of putting 'on error resume next' at the beginning and hoping for the best, or a crapload of error handling code for every function turning a fairly simple program into a steaming pile of spaghetti with shitballs. I am sooooo thankful that Powershell against all odds happened to escape from Microsoft Labs (AKA Where Good Ideas Go To Die) giving us a proper native scripting environment for Windows.
The principle reason to put 2560x1440 pixels on a phone is to further the embarrassment of monitor manufacturers who can only manage to get 1/4 of the pixels into a 19" screen.
Monitor manufacturers like, LG?
It seems that for a long time (say, up to 90s or 00s) it was believed that Gates said that 640KB thing. Then people did some research and didn't find any solid evidence of him saying that. So for some years people were reminded that "Gates never actually said that". But during the recent 5 years or so, talks about it being true after all have been coming back. I personally haven't followed the research much to know what's the current opinion. Hmm.
At the time he is alleged to have made that statement, most versions of the then-dominant desktop OS, CP/M, were limited to a maximum of 64 KB. Weather or not he actually made that statement, at the time it would have been true.
It's called Autoconfig
Or, alternately, 'Plug and P[l|r]ay'.
How about something that can read an IR sensor such that: 1. approach woman at bar, place phone on bar next to drink 2. phone takes baseline body temps of said woman 3. chat with woman for 5 minutes 4. phone takes update body temps to see where the blood is flowing 5. pick up phone and get 1 to 10 scale on how "excited" the woman was with me could work on men too just have to look for different "hot spots"
Easy, when started just print "1".
We can drop nukes in tornadoes too for much less, not that I'm advocating that either.
But we should probably keep this in mind in case of Sharknado.
However once you combine incompetence with malice, then you have a solid foundation to create a government department.
No, you need a huge budget and lack of oversight as well.
If you think that there isn't a file somewhere in the depths of the Manned Flight Operations Manual (or whatever idiot acronym that NASA gives it) detailing exactly what you are supposed to do with a dead body, you're crazy.
They've thought of things you haven't thought of to think of.
Death is a pretty obvious one.
Ground Control to Major Tom,
Your circuit's dead. Is something wrong?
Can you hear me Major Tom?
