That is what I think every time I hear this idiot speak. 95% should do nicely.
A Lunar Space Elevator would be the biggest structure ever made in much the same way as the Great Wall of China is bigger than a kiddie sandbox. The current prototype design (scaled for a deployment in a single SLS launch) would involve 270,000+ km of tether material, stretching from Sinus Medii, past the Lagrange point, deep into cis-lunar space. With all of that string, the prototype payload mass is only 128 kg, but you have to start somewhere, and it could be (and, if it works, would be) built up over time.
The goal is to open the Moon up to mining. Let the games begin!"

The appropriate response is to tax them properly. I would recommend the 65% top bracket that JFK thought was "sensible."
I thought Dark Matter existed as asteroids ?
In asteroids. (Maybe.)
RTFA... it sounds plausible.
It may sound plausible, but it doesn't look plausible, at least to me.
If you believe Figure 5 in this paper, I have a bitcoin exchange I would like to sell you.
'If the government wants this information they're going to get it, no matter what we do with our gaming consoles.
More pernicious BS I have never heard. By the same token, there is no reason to use either door-locks or condoms.
BTW, I do not have a Kinect and have covers on all web-enabled cameras, including the one in my laptop.
I really dislike both Whole Foods and the politics and pseudo-science of its founder, and basically avoid it entirely.
Besides, they don't call it "Whole Paycheck" for nothing.
Sudo Mastery: User Access Control For Real People
I really need this. Whenever I say
sudo make me a sandwich
I never get any food. And using it in bed! Let's just draw a curtain over that!
So, I am convinced I need help with using access control on real people. Maybe this book would be just the thing
Actually, from the evidence, I think our economy is run by monkeys. It would explain a lot.
I wonder how soon until ISP's tiered pricing packages will become indistinguishable from those for cable TV, with grouped together services that vary not just in throughput or quality guarantees, but in what sites you can reach at each service level, or which sports teams are subject to a local blackout order.
Not long. The cable guys are, in this way, just like the Bellheads. They see their real moneymaker as these blasted tiered services (never mind their historical roots in equipment limitations). Soon you will probably have to buy the Disney package to be able to get the Google package to be able to get slashdot.
What I think of the judges that thought this was a good idea is not fit for slashdot, much less polite company.
For those puzzled by the description here, this is a software contest, with a 300 Euro prize
An award of 300 euros for the best performing approach to author profiling (age and gender identification) is sponsored by Atribus (Corex).
Another word JOBS.
Even if you hate Apple look what happened to Apple since 1997 when Steve Jobs came back who is considered one of the best CEOs? CEO's get paid a lot because they have a HUGE impact on stock price and company performance.
Steve Jobs had a salary of $ 1 per year. He shared in the success of the company because he owned a good chunk of it.
That, I have no problem with.
DavidHumus notes "Maybe the bigger question is why is CEO pay so entirely disconnected from company performance?"
Because ownership has been replaced by control, and leadership has been replaced by management.
Shocking! Who would have ever guessed before the advent of complicated math models that food riots tend to occur when food prices go up !
Next up, complicated fluid dynamics models that show that when it rains, you may get wet.
