No, I agree. If Feynmann can't follow their calculations, there's something largely amiss. Then again, that was a while ago and for all I know they might be making perfect sense now.
But I still contend that "it sounds like gibberish to laypeople" is a pretty low bar to set. It's almost impossible to describe something like QCD to non-phycisists without stopping twice a sentence - "well, not a literal color", "not 'up' like in 'gravity'", etc. - even at the high school textbook level.
Which means for the layperson, it mostly sounds like gibberish.
In fairness, almost everything from high-energy physics sounds like gibberish to everyone but the people running the experiments.
I immediately tried to crash every phone of every coworker who has an iPhone within earshot of me and it didn't work.
I too enjoy getting fired over stupid shit. Do you have any other suggestions I might try?
What about in a live setting if the singer is tired or sick and needs help delivering a 'usual' performance as opposed to trying to record a performance that just isn't there? Isn't that what they were made for initially?
Yes. That's the idea. Still true, though. Vocal range can change from day to day.
Even autotune is mostly used to correct singers who can't hold a specific pitch, not to extend their vocal range or otherwise make it something that can't be sung.
Correcting a singer who can't hold a specific pitch is expanding their vocal range! Maybe from zero to something, but still.
I think I see where you're both going, and I agree with him. It's not like just any asshole can broadcast. The government decides who's even allowed to bid on spectrum, so even if there were nothing fancier going on, there's manipulation at that level. But beyond that, Fox "News" and their victory in court against having to even try to tell the truth when they call it news is vindication of the position. The mainstream media does the will of the government, and buys legislation in same, to the extent that the lines between the two are blurred.
I've been to useful meetings, they were meetings in other departments. I know what's going on in my department. Visiting another department every week can be relevant.
I can understand the engineer's union attitude towards this. Would YOU want a camera on you all day? Do we really need to know whether the engineer picks his nose?
I've worked in a casino. I still picked my nose.
Obviously I wasn't handling chips or money
Sure, plenty of kids and teens would not get educated, but they're probably not get anything now either. You can't make a student that won't learn educated anymore than you can make a morbidly obese person who refuses to eat right healthy. Sometimes society is better off with such people being allowed to make themselves into warnings for others.
Setting aside the sheer depravity of this argument, we have ample historical context for what happens when society cuts off the neediest. France, Haiti, Cuba, China, Russia, Algeria, Egypt, India, Scotland, The Phillipines, Mexico--just to name a few places where social and political inequality have driven massive, bloody revolts.
Wealth and political power calcify with the already wealthy and powerful. The middle and working classes slowly lose what wealth they have through attrition. Poverty becomes a virtually inescapable sink of destitution. Eventually, enough people end up having quite literally nothing to lose that you get vicious, deadly, destructive revolutions that take generations to recover from.
If you insist on taking a "pragmatic" view of not even bothering to -try- to improve the lives of the impoverished, try to at least understand the historical ramifications of what you're arguing for.
You don't need a lawyer, you just keep your mouth shut and say nothing.
So you definitely go to jail. Fun!
This is standard procedure all around the world.
So is treating people who refuse to say anything as if they're obstructing justice.
