If the rate of radioactive decay can vary, how would this affect things like carbon 14 dating? Very interesting.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Not a bad idea, except that the main source of security for a slot machine comes from the fact that it is under 24/7 surveillance. Give someone unsupervised physical access to the machine though, and all "security" is lost.
I think this point is completely missed by most people, and I wish it were talked about more in the news/media. We can't have our cake and eat it too. Either we pay for our own healthcare or we all bow to the tyranny of the majority "for the common good". I prefer the former.
Is this really that bad? Selling a limited resource as "unlimited" is not sustainable. I'd rather have the smaller proportion of folks who use a larger proportion of data pay more for it. So what?
I'm confused as to how a book "lacking in foundational knowledge and often foregoing explanation of research" can present "a comprehensive and well-referenced view of modern evolutionary research".
Don't get me wrong, the book might be terrific, but what an oxymoronic summary (there's some jargon for ya)!
Do you really think there's anything about being on the Moon that is going to change human nature? Will the Moon colonists share everything and unite in a Moon-wide kum-bah-yah?
Of course there's going to be weapons up there, and of course the US will want to "hog" all the glory. Better than China or Russia at least...
is that China can hold the rest of the world hostage once they are able to nudge the largest WMD ever either towards or away from the Earth.
I would counter that water is always wet. Ice is a solid and steam is a gas. Would you ask for extra Frozen-Water-In-A-Solid-Form cubes in your water?
This is actually a good thing. Selling a limited "resource" as unlimited is not a sustainable system. Just ask AT&T...
Simply put, if someone is making over $200,000 (or any other amount for that matter) it's nobody's business how they spend their money. Take your silly class warfare elsewhere.
The govt should not be as involved in price fixing, nor does their insistence upon doing so grant them any extra rights.
