The people who do that have conflated proof with faith. We absolutely should not have faith in science, we should demand proof. Science is Faith's eternal enemy!
You weren't giving them any money, so why does it matter if you do or do not play their game in protest?
They're inventing and improving the robots as they clean up the site. "Necessity is the mother of invention" and all that. Without a site to clean up, there's no way to build better robots to clean up nuclear sites.
Ratman was pretty confident that the cake was, indeed, a lie.
It's not only people who live there, but if my estranged cousin from Sri Lanka (who are well-known for their ignorance of US law) is visiting and invites the cops in, they can come in and there's no longer any legal grounds to fight the resulting arrest on the basis of illegal search.
Any occupant at all. I wonder if my dog could consent...
And is it really for the greater good that we actually kill them? We sink more money into killing a person than we do keeping them alive, incarcerated.
The only real result of the death penalty seems to be deterrence and revenge catharsis.
Sometimes it's getting tasked to do something that teaches you how to do it. If you appear incompetent to the eyes of the taskmaster, you won't get the chance to even try.
In an old retail job, a boss of mine told me he got where he was by saying "Yes, I know how to do that" to everything that was ever asked of him, and basically learning how to do it on the spot (driving a forklift, for example).
If you can do a passable job while learning, you can do it better next time.
Agreed. I wish I had a nickle for every "idea person" who applied to my indie video game company. Then I could actually afford more coders and get more work done...
That's rather Amero-centric of you. Would you go to an Arabic language website? If so, you probably have a way to type Arabic characters. Would you go to a Japanese language website? If so, you probably have a way to type Japanese characters. These characters have been allowed in certain parts of the URL for a long time, but never the TLD. What, largely, has changed?
This is a step towards more globalization, which is a good thing for everyone except the people who are on top but unable to take full advantage of being on top (the American middle and lower classes).
I'll be ready with waves and waves of my own men!
So we, as a species, should stop looking towards the stars and keep our noses to the ground and dig, dig until we build utopia on planet Earth? Somehow I do not think that is a long-term survival prospect for our species.

I think the Gnutella network (Limewire), Kazaa, or Skype are more appropriate. They're more decentralized than BitTorrent (though BitTorrent has some redundancy).
I vote to put a bell on him! Who's with me?!
Lucifer, the Light-Bringer, the Morning Star, also known as The Fallen One, Satan, and the Devil.
"The unexamined life is not worth living", so I'm going to thoroughly examine every aspect of my own life! How much time can one really spend on things like this? I've tried keeping calorie counts every day, but now I just weigh myself every morning and approximate calories on every new meal I add to the repertoire. If I spend too much time trying to optimize everything in my life, what time do I have left to live it?
