So are we giving up on the idea of some sort of low metabolism sleep state?
Nah. Some frozen sperm is all that is needed. The rest of a male is unnecessary.
Give me a break. Since when is good science disseminated by press release?
I remember when Fleischmann and Pons pulled a similar stunt. That turned out to be bunk too.
What do we want? Evidence driven change
When do we want it? After peer review.
There are still quite a few unemployed and underemployed. Just offer them jobs as Prisoner Simulation Engineers and you will kill two stones with one bird.
Nonsense. 20% is generous as an average for this group.
It's very difficult for me to see how you could make a consumption tax progressive enough to result in overall progressive taxation when there are people with 10s of billions in financial assets walking around.
Their personal consumption rates are in the fractions of a percent of their income, not say 80% like an upper middle class person.
Ultimately I think the current taxation system is reasonable IF some of the egregious loopholes are closed - particularly the carried interest and in the area of estate taxation.
In traditional societies your children would take care of you in old age.
Maybe if we got away from this nuclear family bullshit parents would pay more attention to their children because the return on investment would once again be important to them.
I am quite happy with my Nexus 4. I could have maybe dealt with the 5 but surely the 6 is more than what is going to fit in my shirt pocket.
Unfortunately our system of economics doesn't capture these diseconomies.
Imported oil is another one. If you factored in the cost of political and military involvement in the middle east the price of oil would look very different.
Sounds like everything I don't use in Windows is getting patched.
My experience in France is that the young people in tech industries speak good English. Not so much the older generation.
The real problem is once you get out in the general public and want to do something like get a train ticket or buy lunch. It makes daily life a problem.
You are assuming there are conveniently placed superchargers. The general rule is that there are not. Two of the routes I take most frequently only have superchargers near the destinations. Completely impractical.
For example there is only ONE supercharger in all of Canada.
Then there is the additional fact that even using a supercharger takes a significant amount of time.
The Tesla is great for commutes, but for road trips forget it.
I thought polygraphs were most notable for giving a lot of false positives.
That's really not such a bad characteristic for security clearances.
There is only one strain of Ebola known to spread through the air, and that has not been seen in the wild since 1978.
Only one human being has been known to be infected with it in all history.
This one isn't all that dangerous either. There have been several previous outbreaks that were controlled without causing world wide panic.
The reason this one is causing panic is because it is occurring in place where there are customs like the entire family getting up close and personal with corpses prior to burial, general lack of medical care infrastructure and superstitious populations who like to do things like attack hospitals to release the patients being treated into the general population.
Simple well known diseases like measles killed 122000 people last year in places like this. Far more than Ebola ever did.
