What if it was zombie Hitler? What then? Huh?
People trying to make the world a better place- it's awful!
I'm glad you're not concerned with it, but as a name.com customer, it does concern me and I'm pretty glad this story was posted so I could take action.
Where are you supposed to be positioning your hands now?
The point is that "religious" is no more a monolithic term you can make specific assumptions based on than "black."
If you can figure out what's wrong with responding to an article about a rape with "what's the bet he's black?," you can figure out what's wrong with your post. If you cannot, you're probably a bigot.
Well, I guess that's yet another way to make sure Linux stays niche in desktop use forever.
"'By the time we're even 20, we've filled it up,' he said, adding that the only way to add information after that point is to 'repurpose our neocortex to learn something new.'"

Are helicopters even reasonable in the thin Martian atmosphere? I assume it would still be possible, but the rotors would have to spin way faster and require much more energy.
That's exactly my point. If such things can be controlled, what's to stop the hypothetical torturer from turning them to the max? I'm sure there would be some kind of electronic locks, but those don't exactly have a track record of always working.
You're probably joking, but that's actually an interesting thought. What are the implications of immortality tech on punishment / torture? Currently no matter how bloodthirsty and depraved someone is, the most they can do is torture someone for a (few days?) Death provides a natural escape to that and many other things.
And by "they" you mean 1 guy acting alone who was near-universally denounced for his murder. Nice try.
Some apps spy on me -> I pirate everything! Sounds like someone is trying to justify being a cheap-ass. (With a dose of sociopathy since apparently you're excited about the prospect of devs losing their jobs so you don't have to pay $0.99!)
The article specifically says "Sodas sold at grocery and convenience stores would be exempt as well." So you'll still be able to get your diabetes size big gulp at Sleven.
