Why not just take a little piece of paper, and write "see other side" on both sides?
The latest Scientific American has an article about a newish bayesianized quantum theory. To the limited extent that I understand it, the wave function is just the bayesian priors - what you think before you collect the evidence. The only thing that collapses when you measure something is your ignorance about the state of the universe.
Not edgy, like the previous thread?
I think Mother Theresa would choose not to print anything.
She was a friend of poverty, not of the poor, and considered suffering to be a state of grace.
She was a rather nasty piece of work, who kept the poor in poverty, and prevented many dying people from getting access to medicine.
So you're saying she was a Republican?
Mother Theresa would print a Plastic Jesus for the Popemobile, and Gandhi would print a dildo for Mother Theresa.
The two causes are not mutually exclusive, and I say this as a gun enthusiast who would not fire a 3D-printed gun with his own 2 hands.
I shoot with my 3D printed hand. You should see the looks on peoples' faces when I have my hands in the air, and suddenly the 3D printed hand whips out a 3D printed gun and shoots them right between the eyes.
At least 90% of the results I see from government-funded 'science' look to be a total waste of my tax dollars.
Given a randomly selected tax-funded scientific research project, 99% of us aren't qualified to say whether it is or isn't a waste of tax dollars.
You would have been more persuasive if you'd used all-caps on more words.
Perhaps you mean that you'd "guess that already 95% of people working in the IT field are autistic".
(or is that observation too obsessively detail oriented?) (you have no idea how long I struggled with where to put "already"... )
You're confusing "autistic" with "anal retentive".
Thank you for that.
"So IBM announces a 25 gig hard drive... does the world need this yet? Unless this is in a RAID, would you really want to trust 25 gigs on a single drive? What would you use this for?"
Fly-by-wire isn't your best example. Ask a few dozen early F-16 pilots how that system worked.
Yes, it was improved with time. It also killed a lot of people.
How many mass shootings have there been in the history of gun shows in America?
Ever been to a gun show? There's thousands of guns all over tables, in display cases, being carried by people, and the entire place is filled with what most people would describe (either half-jokingly or not) as gun nuts.
Hundreds of gun nuts, thousands of guns. How many mass shootings?
As to your point about suicides, less guns won't help that either. A person truly intent on taking their own life will do so. We're fragile creatures and we have many known weaknesses. This is why the suicide rate in the US is no different from any other place in the world.
More bullets flying around a school?
Who do you think gets called when there's a school shooting? The police.
What do you think the police bring to the school where there's an active shooter? Guns.
What do you think the police do when they encounter an active shooter? They shoot back.
Every single one of you who criticized the NRA's suggestion of armed guards/police at schools is a complete idiot. The only thing their suggestion would change from what we have today is the response time. Bad guy starts shooting, police respond (currently 3 - 5 minutes in good cases), police shoot bad guy, shooting stops. The NRA suggested having them already there to shoot the bad guy right away and it was met with furious anger from idiots who think that a cop driving to the school is somehow more capable of stopping the bad guy and less likely to hurt an innocent bystander than a cop who was already at the school when the shooting began.
Guns aren't just needed at home anymore than airbags are only needed on the highway.
Until you can prove that no innocent people will die because they didn't have a firearm that they wanted/needed, and until you can prove that the US government will always and forever remain fair, kind, peaceful, and benevolent, the Second Amendment stays.
Funny thing about gun-grabbers: they don't have guns. Therefore, they can't take others' guns. The only thing they can do is try and convince the government to try taking the guns. Let's hope that never works, 'cause that'll be one bloody day.
