As opposed to paying $13 in the theater? Those bastards!
30 years was about right for the paleolithic. Neolithic though, our best guess is around 20.
Susan Schneider, a professor of philosophy at the University of Connecticut, joins a handful of astronomers, including Seth Shostak, director of NASA’s Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, NASA Astrobiologist Paul Davies, and Library of Congress Chair in Astrobiology Stephen Dick in espousing the view that the dominant intelligence in the cosmos is probably artificial. In her paper “Alien Minds," written for a forthcoming NASA publication, Schneider describes why alien life forms are likely to be synthetic, and how such creatures might think."
How would you bring them back to earth if they said they wanted to be a racing driver, pop-star, footballer, celebrity, etc.
As a parent it is your job to set realistic goals and expectations not pander to childish nonsense.
Here's a nice surprise: quantum physics is less complicated than we thought. An international team of researchers has proved that two peculiar features of the quantum world previously considered distinct are different manifestations of the same thing. The result is published 19 December in Nature Communications.
Patrick Coles, Jedrzej Kaniewski, and Stephanie Wehner made the breakthrough while at the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore. They found that 'wave-particle duality' is simply the quantum 'uncertainty principle' in disguise, reducing two mysteries to one."

Right. A more accurate headline would be
Until you get charged with "Going equipped for stealing" an offence under the Theft Act. Since blocking RFID will block most shop security devices. Perhaps Blazers will become the new uniform for shop lifters.
If we look at jet aircraft, wear depends on the airframe and the engines, and the airframe seems to be the number of pressurize/depressurize cycles as well as the running hours. Engines get swapped out routinely but when the airframe has enough stress it's time to retire the aircraft lest it suffer catastrophic failure. Rockets are different in scale (much greater stresses) but we can expect the failure points due to age to be those two, with the addition of one main rocket-specific failure point: cryogenic tanks.
How long each will be reliable can be established using ground-based environmental testing. Nobody has the numbers for Falcon 9R yet.
Weight vs. reusable life will become a design decision in rocket design.
Well, it goes many ways to Sunday, but long story short this has potential uses. Just imagine if an extra on Stupid Franchise That Needs To Die VII could get it yanked if "I didn't expect a certain character to make any appearances" could be a valid argument. (Though I joke, misrepresentation of contract is legally dishonest but should have been a tort with the production team, not a DMCA claim with hosts. She should have taken it one rung up the ladder, so to speak - Google is "too late" in that process.)
This exactly. Its not that the actress doesn't have rights here, it's that the court affirmed the wrong rights. If the filmmaker materially misrepresented the film or the role in writing, that should be a fairly straightforward lawsuit.
Not a computer failure as such, according to my source.
These edit do appear to be legitimate corrections
The report is called '''Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Study of the Central Intelligence Agency's Detention and Interrogation Program''' yet the wiki editor has miss named it
"Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture"
Also under Wikipedia's own rules the articles should be NPV and controversial terms backed by legitimate quotes and citations.
Does any body really need any more evidence the entire Wikileaks project has been food for Assange's ego?
His behaviour has done more damage to Wikileaks than anything else including the US government.
Yes. Of all the plans floated so far (by either of the major parties over the past decade or more) this is the least worst.
