True but the ISP are trying to deny equal opputunrity by charging three times for the same data. By creating fast lanes they are saying those with money are better no matter what. Which isn't true. The next google, Facebook or twitter will never be born with fast lanes.

Which is why kids long ago frequently committed suicide and hide the truth from their parents. That is why sucicde rates have dropped off dramatically. The other point is we stop to listen now as opposed to saying suck it up or die. Like they did before

I can understand mandatory voting, however I will only accept it if there is a non of the above option. Should non of the above receive the most votes then a new election has to be held and none of those candidates can run in the second election.

I figure it will take one or two run off elections and the hardliners on either side will disappear for more moderate people.

Damn straight every state should have their own currency and military and if the Feds any to attack someone they have to beg the go snouts for permission to use those troops. That way the southern states can create the theocracy that they desire so badly and we can watch jobs return to the north east in re ore time.

The computer isn't learning from experience it is being programmed by a different method. basically they are copying other drivers reactions to a set of obstacles so that the programmers don't have to create all those rules themselves.

Think of it this way instead of manually programming a replacement robot arm on an assembly line they are copying the program code over directly to save time. This isn't a bad thing. However it is far from learning.

Or maybe the fact that there are more scientists publishing today than there were 20 years ago.

The article not the study, completely ignores one fact. The world population has tripled in 70 years. More papers being published is a result of more people existing. While not the sole reason, it is something to remember.

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
