Nothing wipes out humiliation of a country that no longer exists like going to the moon 60 years later with a rocket that - still on paper - is 1/6 as capable.
It works at three levels:
Wow - that is a really cool observation. Atwood just went way up in my estimation for expressing this.
Atwood: Sorting a conversation by votes is a pretty effective way to destroy conversation. How can you follow the logical flow of back and forth, chronological dialog when the ground is constantly shifting underneath you as posts get voted up or down? You can't.
I have done it here for years.
Any non-alphabetic language is basically emoji. Think of unicode emojis as a kind of universal Chinese if it makes you feel any better.
Can we ban leaf blowers while we're at this?
Zig Ziglar used to say that the only thing worse than training an employee and having him leave, is NOT training him and having him stay!
Employers only care about today's bottom line and don't think about the consequences of not cultivating talent and loyalty.
Personally, I think the anonymity of people in massive cities is the source of many of the problems of city life.
A lot of urbanites poo-pooh the closed-minded clannishness of small town life, but part of the VALUE of this life (I live in a MN town of 1500) is that people know each other. They know each others' families, they know their histories.
If you're an asshole, people know it and will remember it. So you make SURE you don't act like an asshole. Cities? You'll likely never see that person again, so who gives a shit?
I read the freaking summary and it mentioned Israeli soldiers executing people, so I'm not sure how that's not the topic of the OP.

Oh, good, so maybe we have a few extra years before before the west falls to barbarians.
If you ever want to slum it, I've found myself quite happy with Sennheiser CX-150s (2 for $30 special on Newegg). Those are my most expensive set. My others are neon-green Panasonic RPHJE120G, $6 each. When sitting at work listening to music or podcasts, the Sennheisers are slightly better than the cheap Panasonics. When mowing the lawn or working outside, it really doesn't matter except that the seal with the ear needs to be tight.
I'm happy to report that I don't have golden ears
Standby time on larger devices will be excellent. There is plenty of room for a battery and the non-screen electronics draw the same amount as the smaller phones. My problem is that I don't like phones with 5" screens, let alone phablets or tablets. I want something that I can stick in my rear jeans pocket and sit on like a wallet.
You don't think they'll adopt the new USB connector?
All programmers are playwrights and all computers are lousy actors.
