The arguments in favor of Pluto are purely subjective, and are mostly related to the core-self identity of the writer. The funny part is that I subscribe completely. And perhaps this psychological factor should matter in this case alone.
I agree. Then again, my name is on New Horizons, so yeah: Go Pluto!
I'll try to find that one, but it's impossible in network gear on fiber. Light by itself could. Light moving from hop to hop, I believe the 7ms measurement given is a big charitable.
If so, then a "Marconi wins" scenario could be considered: A confederate's computer in Washington legally receives the news feed at the same time as all other interested Washington parties; then, in fractions of a ms, automatically relays the information by direct wireless - no satellites, overland links,etc - to the Chicago machine in 3.2ms, ahead of all of the others receiving the information from their cronies, by conventional transmission means. Somewhat clever, but not illegal (IANAL).
I remember having an internet outage a few years back, and digging up an old dial-up modem out of a drawer and using it... can't remember how many years ago that was, though. 2005? 2007? somewhere thereabouts.
Bet I still have that modem. Wonder if I could dig up the dial-up numbers without having to look them up on the web (which would rather defeat the point...)
Which is why I still have a back up dial-up account, even though I haven't tested it for about a year. I am considering getting rid of it, & going dry loop with my DSL. I"ll get to save some money, and go naked at the same time.
Dude from the UK here. How the hel would we watch a movie through all the rain?
Bring an umbrella.
This is right. Most plots have been done. It's how the plot is described, how the story is told that's important.
Method 1: Jack and Jill went up the hill. They found some water. Jack tripped on his way back down.
Method 2: Jack, the village upstart who always seemed hellbent on making others' lives miserable, was found, oddly, walking hand in hand with the virtuous Jill towards the secluded town well...
Oh c'mon don't leave us hanging - does she put the lotion in the basket?
These people didn't do that, so I think they are mass murderers rather than terrorists.
Are they really mass murderers though? Three people died as a result of the bombs.
A moment of silence for the MIT officer.
It also works both ways: If the interloper is in your area, you are equally free to be in their area. The out-of-area competitions way well be of mutual benefit to both parties. If nothing else, I suspect it will make both (and other) stations more interesting. Btw, Bergmayer may also wish to note that the internet is also legal.
relationships where one partner cannot tell the truth for fear of offending the others ego are doomed. in fact, propping up willful ignorance is a compounding stress that will destroy any relationship, not just the personal variety.
Wife: "Honey, is my butt big?"
Husband: (without looking up) "No."
MasterCard: "Okay - what did they buy?"
Retailer: "Our debit card." *click
Why is American beer served chilled? There's no other way of telling it from piss.
American beer is cold; piss is warm.
A good screening test is one that identifies a treatable disease.
Or six years extra for people to try experimental treatments before symptoms kick in. Or six extra years to decide when or how to gracefully leave this world, with dignity.
Whoosh on me - thanks for the fishing! Unfortunately, while tabbing back and forth between your description and Google, the doodle went black, and I panicked.
