If everybody thinks it is true then it must be true. After all, that is how we proved Global Warming and Climate Change. Worked for witch burning too back in Salem.
I fail to see any problem provided that the information is accurate and that is ensured by the very nature of Wikipedia's open editing. If someone puts up false information someone else quickly corrects it.
Wiki is beautiful.
There are plenty of resources on the land of planet Earth to sustainably support 50,000,000,000 (50 Billion) people with ease. Live frugally, not just financially but in the resources you use and you will make room for many more people. We need a lot more people to solve the big problems.
The real issue with living longer is people's unrealistic expectation at at 65 years old all of a sudden they deserve a free ride and can retire. That's the fantasy that is unsustainable.
"The circle you associate in perhaps?"
No, I'm taking about out on the street. I just don't see Androids out there. Or maybe they're all hiding...
Despite this claim to large number shipped I just am not seeing Android tablets out in the hands of users. I've seen a couple (count them, two) Kindles in the real world.
Meanwhile I've seen many hundreds of Apple's iPad's and thousands of iPhones, iPodTouches, etc.
Something's not right with the statistics given in the article. It just doesn't match the real world. So is this a Shipped vs Sales confusion?
Or maybe the Androids are being hidden away in 'smart' devices like toasters and washing machines. That would certainly inflate the Android numbers.
Well, it doesn't really matter. Our family has six iPodTouches, an iPad and five MacBooks. How many Androids are being claimed to be sold is completely irrelevant. What matters is we can do the things we want to do from content creation to communications to consumption with the devices we have.
So the government is telling us that it is illegal to over charge for an illegal service provided. Hmm...
"It's all pseudoscience"
Over generalization. I would vote this entire article down and the original poster who submitted it.
It's a start but we really don't need to be the police of the world. We can cut our military spending by 90% and still have plenty of power to destroy any other country, terrorist group, protect our borders, etc.
Then that $500Billion could be put to long term infrastructure improvement and other productive developments.
I used to use a simple indexed array for remembering passwords but as the OP noted the number gets too large (thousands) so I switched over to a formula combined with an indexed array. Low security passwords get the least protection under this system and the high security passwords get stored in the array which is much harder to crack.
Dogs have a lot more language than most people realize. We have a many generational large pack of livestock working dogs on our farm. Admittedly these dogs are more intelligent than a typical companion dog because they are selected for intelligence and spend their life doing herding, guarding and other tasks which stimulates their minds.
They typically know 300 words that is in a shared pidgin that we use which is a combination of signs, vocals (our language and theirs) and body language which describe objects (nouns), actions (verbs), variation (adverbs and adjectives) which they use in multi-word sentences. They both understand us, understand each other and speak back to us.
Some of the dogs understand and use as many as twice that and they actively make new signs to describe new things. This has previously been shown in other species. Dogs do it too.
Their biggest problem is their lives are so short. This is why having the multi-generational pack makes this behavior more noticeable - the dogs are passing on culture from generation to generation unlike dogs which are kept isolated in human families and treated as just a pet.

And you speculated that you had any left.
This is not really news. I was aware of this back when I was a child in the 1970's. People are screaming in the media about global warming but they're missing the real issue which is toxic pollution. Climate change is merely a distraction.
The solution is to take control over the inputs as much as possible. I pasture raise my children far out in the country raising much of our own food so I know it is good. I make sure we have good water and I limit our exposure to unnecessary chemical toxins. Very little is actually necessary.
In addition to the chemical toxins there are also social toxins. Turn off the TV and get a grip on the other media you expose yourself and your children to on a daily basis. Teach them to question these things and understand the devious psychology behind advertising. Don't be a sheep.
Perhaps having sadistic psychopathic narcissists trolling is the best solution to dealing with their illness. At least that way they're not torturing kittens and preening in front of mirrors while plotting to over throw the world. It might turn out that the Internet discussion forums are the best cure for this disease.

Without meat eating where would we be(ak). One more good reason to carnivore.
