Sharks eat mammals with lots of blubber and North Carolinians are as tasty as a big seal.
"I rode on the back on an elephant in the san antonio zoo back in the 1970s...that elephant had long red hair on it...the hair is still there,..."
The hair still is there? What about the elephant?
"To revive a dead species, that you don't have complete DNA for: Start with the closest living relative. Change the major parts, that you know of. See how the results look. "
Who cares how they look, you have to check if they're tasty.
"You are all cows. Cows say moo. MOOOOOOOOO! MOOOOOOOOO! Mooooo cows MOOOOOOO! Mooo say the cows. YOU COWS!!"
You're way off, man, this is slashot not usenet's newsgroup alt.cows.moo.moo.moo
Check response time?
I'd rather think that one crew cuts the cable at some place and during that time a second crew installs a listening/delay device in a secondary location, that will be finished before the first cut can be repaired.
That man has obviously no idea how the series of tubes work.
"You are not aware iOS is a major OS?"
That may be, but just as myself on my 5 family iOS gadgets, everybody I know uses Chrome, most of them with Google Encrypted (Verbatim) as search engine, the only way to get non-trivial results.
OTOH 20 million 12 year old girls might very well use Safari, but they also actually _pay_ for Taylor Swift songs, so their opinion doesn't really count.

Decades ago I paid 12.000$ for a Postscript Laserprinter and a bit later almost 1500$ for the first color Deskjet HP500C, because I _needed_ them.

"They have a proud tradition of protecting pedophiles and rapists."
And lots of black US civil rights fighters in the sixties.
They'll give him the French Citizenship for extraordinary services rendered and presto they won't extradite him anywhere.
He'll get sentenced to 6 months 'jail time' in St. Tropez like the french secret service people, who killed a photographer when sinking the Greenpeace boat.
Then they'll make him a commander of the Legion of Honour and give him a lifetime pension.
"It's so ridiculous how companies apparently think that it's ok to send unsolicited email just because my address shows up on google play for an android app."
If you use your real email address for something you don't want any email from, you should be on Digg instead of here.
"But delay will still make it useless for telephony, streaming, and a range of other purposes."
Ah that's why we can't phone farther than 500 miles on land lines.
But seriously, telephony and streaming works fine, I can stream flawlessly from an ASTRA Internet satellite on a geostationary orbit, heck they even 'stream' Television to a billion people from there.
Now if you're talking First person shooters, that's another story.
"ecologist Marcel Dicke of Wageningen University in the Netherlands says. “You have a plant crying wolf all the time, and the bugs won’t listen to it any longer.”
It's the Netherlands goddamit, use the appropriate 'the dike leaks' metaphor instead of the wolf.
"this outburst will help them understand how such systems evolve and change over time"
I can tell you right now. Sometimes something falls in, sometimes it doesn't.
