...which is probably a majority of 'dotters, nowadays.
... It didn't require great actors any more than good 1950's SF required great characters. (Go on, test it: Of that genre, do you remember the stories or the characters?)...
Forbidden Planet. Robbie the Robot. Prototype CD player.
Yep. John Wayne made a career like that.
...This particular company was badly structured and was actually incurring all sorts of needless costs and problems by not having their house in order. If anything the FDA will make them more competitive in the long run.
Interesting. I hate bureaucracy as much as anyone, but I guess I have a love-hate relationship with it. I can see its advantages even as I curse its practitioners. They'll probably get rid of all the cowboys that solved most of their problems (and caused some). Hopefully the bureaucrats will convert the knowledge to processes before they drive them off.
Sorry, I've been monitoring some the forums of some German news sites and can guarantee you that American trolls are totally outnumbered by the Russian propaganda machinery. And yes, it's blazingly obvious that these posters are paid and use vast numbers of fake accounts.
+1 interesting. Anyone else with a non-American new site perspective?
Whereas a significant majority of Russians approve of Putin.
Russians have historically liked having a StrongMan(tm) telling them what to do.
In this case, wouldn't that be cosmoturfing?
Well played. You win the internet for today.
Agh! It's even ambiguous in their video. Is it pronounced "Nome", or "G'nome"? The female narrator in the video says g'nome at the beginning, and then makes the 'g' silent toward the end.
I can't take this anymore. And that, my friends, is why I use KDE.
Errr...is the "K" silent?
"The Green Hills of Earth" sends me to the Way-back Machine(tm). Great stories. Lot's of optimism, despite whatever problems were in the stories. He wrote a lot about dystopian societies, generally communistic or religious totalitarianisms. The plucky protagonists always found a way out. It always helped that they were independently wealthy or off the grid.
...probably during "Titties & Beer".
Thanks, interesting. Several other posts from down under do not seem to approve of it, some are apathetic. Nice seeing an opinion from the other end of the spectrum.
"If it is clear which way the vote is before we go to the polls (and it almost always is) then why go vote?"
Because, not always?
Agreed. We make a big deal about the national elections, but don't bother informing and voting on the local elections, which can have a greater effect on your life and ideology.
