I see a few amazing ones, but I don't get what's amazing about "Can you put peroxide in your ear?" I do it all the time. It makes perfect sense. *shrug* of course, calling people stupid has never made sense to me. The adage "There's no such thing as a stupid question" applies here very nicely...
I scored 130-140 on my IQ tests (depending on the test, I took two or three through my life -_- stupid schools) and I know for a fact my brain is slower than average. I just retain knowledge above average. So by most definitions, I'm dumb and smart at the same time!
People have been talking about and "calculating" these chances for decades at least, and the answers have consistently been bouncing back and forth between "thousands" and "one" civilization. Every single article on the subject has the same bottom line: we don't know.
In the style of "turn every movie into a game before it even comes out" we should get a shiny new Tron game (joysticks anyone?:-D) by this Christmas!
Sarcasm aside, a new Tron game would be wicked. *goes to play the old Tron again*
I agree. The tangible object just seems more... permanent especially for computers (which, if they crash, will take all those downloaded games with them).
Besides, I just like the feel of putting in the CD when I play a game. Don't ask why. I just do.
It's me. I choose who gets my info. If I want to stay anonymous, I can use cash instead of checks/credit/debit to avoid companies and banks getting my info, I can choose to not have an email, Facebook, Myspace, etc., and in the end, the only ones who know me are my school, work, and govt. who have my name, address, and SSN. In the end, I choose who gets my info for the most part.
