that would be true and I would fully agree if you would write the year before the month. I would immediately change my mind about this if everyone would write dates year, then month, then day, or just month, then day or just day.
it matters in all contexts where it is not clear from the outset if the date was written following the dumb US convention or how nearly everyone else on this world does it.
Although, personally I would actually even prefer the MM-DD convention when it would only be used with the ISO way to write dates: YYYY-MM-DD which should really be the only way how anyone writes down dates.
I guess that is also why you write down "seventeen" as 710? oh wait
even more idiotic than using absurd units like F, inches, miles and ounces.
You are embarrassing yourself, US.
How can secretly accessing the private information of the people accessing the web site NOT be illegal? Where are you living? You need some decent laws over there, if it really is not illegal to do this.
Well in all the countries I have lived and worked so far (not the US) this would clearly be illegal. How is it not illegal in your country? Did you inform the police?
paper? you are kidding, right?
Why should I get excited about something written by a journalist where there must be something writeen by scientists? Where is the PDF of the scientific paper to download?
they are totally within their rights of being that lame, of course, but they chose to be totally lame here.
Ah well, good for BitBucket.
As soon as those chimpanzees apply for their rights by themselves I am all for it.
In the meantime, could somebody provide some psychiatric help to those members of the Nonhuman Rights Project?
and what the exact plan to neutralize or destroy them is?
Without that information, it is completely useless to discuss the issue of whre it will be done.
that you will have to pay a lot of money to use it?
What I never inderstand about articles that talk about very distant objects: they always use "are" as if this large structure would be there now, when, if at all and we interpret the data correctly, it was there billions of years ago. Something that "stretches" over 4 billion ligth years may also (depending on in which direction it stretches) also stretch over a time span of at least 4 billion years.
It is weird to think that what we see is not our universe at all: it is a picture that is a collage of times of what the universe was.
But what does it mean about our understanding of the universe now? Obviously we have no idea if Quasars "exist" -- the ones we observed so far are at least 600 million years away and thus have existed 600 million years ago.
600 Million years is a very long time. But 10 billion years is much closer to the beginning of the universe than to now. Does this make the violation of that "principle" then even more or qutie less significant?
"so where needed we will always start a dialogue to ensure the trademarks are used properly to avoid confusion."
Yes - fuck you too.
Somebody is getting way too much money that could get spend on useful work for this shit.
Somebody should tell them about computers.
