So drop more. How could it be any worse than what we're doing now?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
And yet, the photograph shows both!
The "it's neither, not both" argument is sophistry, an attempt to rescue the law of non-contradiction from its clear empirical violation.
" It doesn't make sense to ask which one it is - a "puff" of light is neither a particle, nor a wave, but a different kind of stuff which has some properties of each."
But this is like the Academie Francaise outlawing certain words. It is an academic exercise. Nature, and language, is far more expressive than (some) physicists, and academicians, would have you believe.
Outside the wire, the effect is on the ether.
Yves Couder provides a macroscopic experiment that duplicates the diffraction patterns of photons self-interfering: Single Particle Diffraction and Interference at a Macroscopic Scale.
The reason he won't go so far as to say that's what's happening on a quantum level is, that it requires an ether. And we all know that Einstein disproved the ether (actually he just came up with a, supposedly, simpler model).
Scapegoat the Greeks, and double down on austerity.
What if he just dropped money, and the terrorists bought TVs and sat around getting high on all that good hash, watching cartoons, instead of terrorizing.
And then the "Laws" turn out to be more like suggestions. Fluctuation theorem...
Remember the assumptions of Thermodynamics?
The System is continuous. There are no scale, quantum, or relativistic effects.
The laws of thermodynamics are relevant only within a narrow range of physical phenomena, which we have gotten out of.
At some point, having a server (like Linode) becomes well worth it. As long as you have a network connection, you can connect to your one development box.
So you welcome
"Unless they ask the IRS to make you accountable to them"
There is a better way: make taxes voluntary, fund the government at zero cost through the Fed. The private sector creates at least an order of magnitude more money than government, so there is plenty of room to expand the public money supply.
Indexation of everything (including savings, salaries, transfer payments) eliminates any potential "inflation tax".
Then let's fix society. Start with a basic income, so that no one has to worry about being on the streets if they lose a job (but you could still live on the streets if you wanted, the basic income should be opt-in). We produce enough surplus to support everyone at a certain minimum standard of living.
Then when people are freed from the fear of starving if they lose their job, they can work on changing societal attitudes, about naked pictures for example. Screw the hypocritical prudes who think the naked body is something shameful, to ridicule. Societal attitudes can turn on a dime; consider that Kerry lost the 2004 election because of anti-gay marriage sentiment. Things have changed.
Solution: use the technology of money creation to fund a basic income, so people can pursue their happiness, and explore their natural creativity and wonder.
Why are ppl so afraid of being seen naked? This is some kind of weird social hysteria.
Yes of course you should have the choice to take a Basic Income. We produce so much surplus, we can guarantee everyone a decent minimum standard of living.
