Wouldn't this imply that the universe running the simulation is also mathematical? Which universe is running that simulated universe? How far down do the turtles go? I call bullocks.
The consideration of whether an idea should be considered "stolen" depends in good part on what use it is put. Regardless of whether economic secrets are being stolen and by whom, patent laws should still apply. Hopefully, that will have to serve to protect a company's investment in their R&D, as long as the law is applied at an international level. Even with hopes for patent reform, there is clearly still a need.
If you don't like the term "standard devation", use "margin of error" instead.
My concern with this software is more about privacy protection. As of 2013 TurboTax supposedly encrypts the files on your disk, but how strong is that?
Samples of such rocks may still be in lying pristine condition on the Moon. Their DNA won't have survived due to cosmic ray bombardment, but we may still find interesting information about early life. One day we'll send a robotic surface explorer to look... I hope.
If you don't want to deal with unpleasant editors and revert wars, your best bet is to stick with obscure subjects and try to follow the house rules for style and referencing. You can accomplish quite a lot that way with very little difficulty. Editing controversial or popular articles is asking for much unpleasantness, unless that's what really you want.
Once our company forced us to stop telecommuting and come in to the office, it strongly incentivised turning off my remote devices (work pager, work cell-phone, work laptop, &c.) once I got home. If I'm spending two extra hours each day (10 hours a week) just commuting, that's enough of a commitment.
No you don't use eight lawnmowers to build a Ferrari, you use eight lawnmowers to cut eight times as much grass at once. Dumb example, Mr. Chandrasekher.
Should people be open about their mental issues then? No, people are strongly biased against it. What if you've got AIDS? Or terminal cancer? What if you want to live out your remaining days with a sense of normalcy? No Larry, you're wrong.
You mean he wasn't over there to float the Pirate bay deal? Hmm...
I'm highly embarrassed to be from the same state as this guy. My sincerest apologies everybody! Next time we'll try and elect a box of hammers instead.
Thailand: added to my list.
They'll pry that digital download from my cold, dead hands...
Alzheimers will need to be cured in the next couple of decades anyway or first world nation states will go bankrupt looking after old folks. Once the cure is available: problem solved.
No ambiguity here. No, sir.
