What ridiculously hyperbolic garbage.

If we weren't so focused on the failing strategy of "look for MOAR antibiotics", we could have had the superbug problem licked already with alternatives like phage therapy (which you can only get right now if you fly to Georgia).

What does it tell you when the famed "merkan innovation" can't even out innovate a tiny former soviet republic using 90yr old tech?

Yeah, thought so.

Comment Gonna switch your keyboard to Dvorak now... (Score 1) 388

Great! So you're totally fine if I swap all your QWERTY keyboards for Dvorak ones while you sleep?

Dvorak is clearly a better keyboard layout, so your user experience and productivity are going to be SO MUCH BETTER!

No, no, you don't need to thank me! Just trying to be helpful is all.

Software changing under me for idiotic reasons JUST after I have finished tweaking my workflow exactly the way I want it; is the NUMBER ONE reason I no longer use open-source software for production work at all. Also why I disable very goddamn "auto-update" feature out there...

??? Not at all.

The Uncanny Valley has mostly to do with nearly perfect visual representations pushing our expectations for other aspects of a given simulation (e.g. body language, facial expressions etc...) beyond what we are able to produce. The discrepancy between the two then exacerbates our perception that "something is off"

The Uncanny Valley is mostly mental/perceptual and has virtually nothing to do with our currently crappy implementation of 3D film/TV. The issues there are mostly physiological (e.g. my stereoscopic convergence says this thing is right in front of my face, but my eyes are focusing on the TV 8ft away, WTF!)
