Yea, remember in the 80s when the Irish terrorists were bombing people so often that they even coordinated their attacks with the arabs (who were also bombing)? glad the Irish has chilled out since then.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
the logic is appealing, bit it's a bit like saying i don't need my pest control service anymore because i don't have insects in my home. until you cancel it and all the insects find out your home is available for rent, you don't know the base state of things.
feeding the trolls....
you don't need to be a jew or living in israel to go through israeli airport security. they let anyone who is not a terrorist through...even christians and muslims...gasp! and you don't have to be a jew or living in israel to know their amazing record for plane safety.
Except that would be racist and profiling, so while the black dude is checking in his ticking bomb bag, TSA would be forced to feel up some 4 yr old that their random algorithms chose from the line to ensure they don't unfairly target a black dude.
Honestly, Israel uses profiling and interrogation on all their passengers and it's very effective. They hire intelligent people who don't give a fuck about you getting on that plane if you look suspicious. TSA is just to dumb to do this effectively.
1. Musk makes the batteries. He's finding a potentially huge market to build economies of scale into the battery production.
2. Some communities in the world don't have reliable grids or power generation facilities.
3. Less haggle with the utilities, less red tape to build a stand alone system.
I work at a pretty representative tech company. I plan and control the budget for these types of activities. I think I would know.
We're not talking about you hacking away in your mom's garage...or a tiny company running with no overhead. We're talking about a typical engineer at a Google/Facebook/IBM/etc making $100K+/yr who's actual cost (i.e bill rate) is at least $300K+/yr...being funded for a month.
setting up a dev environment is all you need? white boarding is all you need?
no, those are things you need to do before you even ask for money.
it takes $25K for one single mid level engineer to just write some code for a few weeks, see if he can break through the most likely failure points.
has nothing to do with focus groups or feasibility studies. if you want to do that, drop another $100K on top.
a few thousand dollars?! that would cover one engineer for long enough to set up his dev environment or a couple engineers to whiteboard for a few hours.
they probably get $25K to $50K to explore the space for a few weeks and it goes up orders of magnitude based on success at each stage.
Sounds like you have a problem with your Java process.
they post snarky comments in their web browser which dumps them to dev/null and notifications with static text like "love u 4 ever dog" keep popping up on their desktop.
really odd response. perhaps something your local church told you. but christians believe in the bible, which says jews are the chosen people. perhaps those who want to hate will distance themselves from jews but that's not mainstream thought.
Your posting as AC and seem rather ignorant, but I'll bite.
By definition, all European countries are Christian States. It's not a matter of your opinion. They were founded and remain Christian. Not just in nature, but in law and in decree. Others may live there with equal rights...at least recently...and on paper if not in practice...but that is no different than in Israel. Similarly, Turkey and all ME countries are officially muslim states. It has nothing to do with how secular they are in practice. BTW, seems like you've never been to Israel, but it's very secular both in population and in governance.
Religion doesn't figure into Israeli legislature any moreso than in most countries.
Ah, i found your other post. You are a anti-semitic racist bigot. Or perhaps a Palestinian? Line up for your genocide.
Your self perception is not inline with the meaning of your comments. Best to be honest with yourself and accept that you are a racist bigot. Then go fuck yourself.
Scary stuff. It explains a lot though.
Implies you accept most if not all of it as true when a person with less bigoted view or less ignorant would recognize the intent of the post and the content as lies.
At least not all of the Jewish people subscribe to this supremacist nonsense.
Implies that many, although not all Jews subscribe to these kinds of statements.
Israel is less religious than the USA. Although probably more so than parts of Europe. Really amazed at your linking Mossad, composed mostly of non-religious Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Jews to religious fanaticism.
