Yeah, board games was the domain I thought of - though I was thinking of something more like Ogre.
How is that wierd?
People throw money at things like "ALS research" with literally zero chance of financial reward.
And I'm sure someone somewhere has managed to ebay something they got on kickstarter for more than they paid for it. So though amazingly small there's probably a non-zero chance of financial reward.
But then someone has to judge on whether phase X has been completed or not.
Venture capitalists have legal contracts and the all important lawyers for when the two sides disagree on whether the requirements for a phase have been met. Kickstarter is not going to spend that sort of money and effort on each and every project.
"People just starting out" and "skilled" tend to be opposites which was the point you are so vehemently disagreeing with.
Maybe try reading the words?
That $5 wrench doesn't do anything in making entity A decrypt something that only entity B knows the key for.
In 1953 the percentage of GDP from manufacturing was 28%. In 2012 it was at 12%. I'd call that a drop.
Then you're an idiot. Since 28% of 2.54 trillion is significantly smaller than 12% of 15.43 trillion. So the opposite of a drop.
And no "The manufacturing capacity of the US has never dropped decade-over-decade" could never be referring to as a percentage of GDP, capacity is the raw amount and some other amount increasing doesn't matter in the slightest.
Sure but that CL415 only dumps 1600 gallons at a time, meaning it as to do 7 or 8 of those "fly to a body of water, scoop, fly back to the fire" reloads for every one the drop te DC-10 does.
There's most likely situations in which the DC-10 is better, and other situations in which the CL415 is better.
You left out western australia. I mean it's only a third of the damn continent
Right. I guess if your white and middle class (or better).
Otherwise the trifecta was your most likely result of interacting with the police.
Which university did Al Gore get his climatology degree from again?
Oh, you mean he's just a spokesperson? Like Bill Cosby was for JELL-O? Why would you give a shit what he said?
Of course if you have the reference for the prediction he was just repeating that might be from a slightly more believable source than Mr "I have a nobel peace prize, and an Oscar!". Though chances are pretty good that actual source says something like "X% chance" making it less of a slam dunk.
Also north != south, but that doesn't invalidate the claim, you could be going off topic on purpose.
Amazing, when you are competing with thousands of other projects for people's money you actually have to let people know you exist before you'll get any of that money.
Who would have thunk it!
Right, so in your country they just makes the "some conditions" work exactly the same way (it's probably how they do it in Nevada too for that matter).
Just like when you are required to advertize a job position but already know who you want to employ - and so the job advertisement becomes amazingly specific on a bizarre mix of required experience.
Why should people hand over money because you have a "great idea". A track record or a prototype seems a perfectly reasonable thing to ask for - and of course the person paying they money is the one who determines what qualifies as "track record".
Which is why those payments have an explicit exemption in FCPA - making it completely different from a cash business owner committing tax evasion.
