When I go to any bug, it renders the page then freezes the current tab for 30-40s. Agile board is completely impossible to use (do anything at all, browser again freezes for half a minute). The same problem with Chrome, Safari and IE. I generally use Chrome for everything, but still have to have firefox open just for damn jira.

Comment Re:Does flipping one electron now flip the other? (Score 3, Insightful) 214

Because you don't get to 'flip' anything without breaking entanglement. You can just measure one electron and be sure that the same measurement will give you the same result in entangled one. It is like having two random number generators with the same seed - they always give the same (random) answer, but it does not allow you to transmit anything.

Well, almost. People may not want infinite things, but they want more things that other people have.

Or even better, things that other people don't have. As outward sign of their higher status. It is not about needing something, it is about showing up your neighbours. Post-scarcity is impossible, because artificial scarcity will be immediately invented. Another commenter mentioned that artificial diamonds don't differ from mined ones anymore, but everybody still wants the natural ones. That's good example of artificial scarcity used to create status symbols. So let's say we can 3D print cars, houses, whatever. This will simply make 'real' (not-printed) items more valuable.

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
