...said the underpaid, overworked Chinese web sensor as he enters his 13th consecutive hour of erasing individual thought from his cubicle in smoky, windowless Beijing office.

I agree - it is absurd these fucking liberals have taken the right to smoke in public buildings away from us - even the Chinese can do that.

What I remember from thermodynamics when I took it with Newton: pumping energy (heat) into system making it go all kaflooey. Hotter and colder and then even colder to outrageously hot.

Nope, obviously a conspiracy on the part on those people who wrote the laws of thermodynamics in order to eventually tax us and hand over our God given sovereignty to the UN!

Or a conspiracy in your head - aside from taking physics with someone called "Newton" - having no person of note by the name _alive_ before now in the span of the oldest living Human's life - and somehow taking an interpretation from him which lies on the assumption of a read maxwell's demon - I'd go with "it's in your head, hippy" in conjunction with "they compared March this year to April of previous years for a reason and your dumb ass ignored the month chosen entirely"

Grammar, which in many ways is more important, was not even mentioned. I'm seeing more grammatical errors and incorrect usage every day on television and the Internet news media, such as "I seen", "he don't" and "I have went", by supposedly educated news reporters.

Proper grammar isn't a sign of education - language exists to communicate, when the message is understood it is valid - if a grammatical error can even impact the message there are bigger issues at play than the grammar (vocabulary, mental retardation, etc).

I think the bigger question is, "how would you move this process to a FAB"? I don't think it will happen soon, but it seems to me we would need robotic STMs? Research is continuing... I assume.

Nice generic smaller technology quip, but I think you missed the point of TFA and what the posters you were responding to (hint, they read and understood it). You should actually read it, its more about a change in the understanding of physics than new chips.

What is going on here? Amazon is collecting data on what passages we highlight? What other data are they collecting? I am going to re-read their end user agreement again before I buy any more books from them.

It's stored on their cloud you dumb shit, of course their collecting it.

Yes, they are words that have specific meanings, and that was the basis of my comment. For instance to say "By definition, liberals spy on government and conservatives spy on people, so really, your argument falls flat on its face" is not only incorrect, it flies in the face of conservative ideologies. You cannot have a government _capable_ of spying on people if you have a conservative government, the whole fucking ideology is based around limited (ie: CONSERVATIVE) government.

If we are allowed to bring strawman party specific definitions

You just failed the "allowed to post a rebuttal" test: Political ideologies (conservative, liberal) are not parties. You may try again after you check yourself before you wreck yourself. I suggest a dictionary, asshole.

Typical Liberal, spewing pop culture and failing all around.
