Good answer. "Settled" isn't a good word because it implies the end of a process that results in the end of all motion or change. "Well-established" or "well-proven" are more accurate terms but sound like severe understatements in some cases...
It's nothing compared to the comic strip in TFA 8-(
Came here to post this (although I don't see anything wrong with a new game of the same style).
The visuals in this video remind me of the visualizations in the GiTS series.
Anyone who likes this might also like Retrovirus, a Descent-like game in a Tron-like world...it has LAN co-op and is sold DRM-free BTW.
Haha yeah right, this story brought them lots of page views and reminded people that Newsweek is still in business, she'll likely get a bonus! Journalism is a thing for the history books at this point. Capitalism killed it. It wasn't as profitable as running what used to be called a "gossip rag."
A great quote I remember (paraphrasing), it was from some university professor, in an article on what Jesus may have really looked like: "Many Americans would be nervous to fly on a plane with Jesus."
An average rich person isn't in danger.
A middle-class guy living an average life with no private security, 20ft barbed wire wall, or expanse of ocean or sky between him and the rest of us plebes, with half a billion dollars of relatively easily stealable assets to his name is in danger.
Maybe become a gigolo who specializes in masochism. If you like setting up Exchange servers, you'll love it the first time a woman steps on your balls.
Fact checker? Even for the stuffy old companies who have such a person on staff, some stories are Too Good To Fact Check!
It's not a racism on Slashdot problem, it's heavily euro-centric view of history in the Western world problem. It's very unlikely that the GP perpetuated it intentionally...especially since he was making a joke.
Definition of "discover," according to history:
Discover (verb): To be found by a white person
Some of the supercar manufacturers come close to 100% (Ferrari is probably the closest by a big margin)...but for most it's just the engine and chassis, and everything else is built to spec by outside companies or are just "off the shelf" parts.
The opposite end of the spectrum is also populated with high-end companies, like Gumpert and Lotus who don't do much more than design and assemble in-house and heavily use OTS components.
Inertia and Legacy. See how much it sucks to be on the receiving end, MS?
I want Microsoft dead. I want them to have a hilariously incompetent CEO, OS prices that rival an entire gaming console or low-end laptop, and copy protection that annoys paying users. A free version of Windows ould make Microsoft the most powerful corporation in computing again and pull the rug out from under home-use of Linux. This is seriously bad news.
There are certainly stupid poor people but I'd say they're a small minority. And I've never seen a person who is "disadvantaged" by such gross stupidity as you describe being defended by anyone. So for now the "stupid poor" problem appears overblown and the "leftist defender of morons" appears to be a strawman.
Just thought I'd add, I once aggressively overheard a conversation between some Albertan oil zillionaires, and they thought this was a great idea...
