They are 20 years older now and middle managers. Instead of tracking down actual abnormalities themselves, they spend their days in meetings wondering which of their other co-workers are aliens or supernatural.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Apparently you haven't been around enough mentally ill or socially defective people - they aren't deterred by it (painful death), may even see it as a challenge.
Agree. I can't understand how Oregon allows a doctor to write a prescription for something that will kill you, yet some state can't obtain drugs to execute people. Which is fine by me, since I don't think they should be executing anyone anyhow.
And as you said sufficient morphine, or propofol, or other strong narcotics will kill you, and that stuff is available from any pharmacy supplier. Perhaps their ethics prevents them from supplying executioners.
...about capitalism doing it the other way around.
.... cures it.
When will we see real-time brain injury analysis like "Wow Bob, that left hook to the face just left him with a level 6 concussive trauma that will mean severe aphasia in 12 years - he won't be able to say ****."
Fantasy, unless it's well and thoroughly regulated. Capitalism when free incentivizes monopolization and centralization of power and eliminates competition. Seems like everything else does too. We're doomed.
It's not only sound quality that's subjective, price is too. For some $200 for a pair of speakers is a lavish expense. Others may much more for just a cable.
Do they sound better when you pay more for them?
Anyone commenting here is guilty of being distracted by irrelevant trivia.
Don't running gangs and smuggling phones have their own penalties? Does it matter (illegal activity) if it's done via FB, or via carrier pigeon, or via verbal whispering? It's the illegal activity that should be being prosecuted, not the online access. And doing it online just provides a neat "paper" trail - ask your friends in Utah for a dump of every I/O from your devices.
Macro-object anti-virus protection in 3 dimensions. Develop macrophages that identify, target, and dispose of invading objects with little to no collateral damage to surrounding areas (residential, for example), little to no disturbance to the area on an on-going basis. Not just for the White House, but for lots of other attractive targets (industry centers, nuke plants, famous attractions, etc.) A new industry becomes public as well as a new operational environment we'll all be getting used to.
No, this is progress! One way to travel at the speed of light is to slow down that speed.
I wish the vote were worded "Is the denial of climate change a hoax?"
I have and use a manual lawn mower. They're still made and you can buy one at a big-box hardware store.
