branding the counterfeit gear(I'm just guessing that
I'm offtopic here (checking the "no bonus" boxes), but I notice you continue to omit the needed space between "gear" and "(I'm just guessing)". Your comments would be more readable (and more easily taken seriously) if you followed centuries old proper formatting rules.
Minor nit, far better than some folks here's "todays special's" or "there car is over their". If I were moderating I'd probably have modded you up despite the rather annoying mistake.
Do people that age just drop dead?
Yes they do. Not often, but it happens. I had "sudden cardiac death". I'm alive because it happened in an emergency room in front of a doctor. They called code, and brought me back. I was 30. I'm still here at 45, 5 bypasses, a defibrillator implant and 8 stents later. The odds increase if you consider this researcher was probably a nerd like most of us, meaning he was probably sedentary most of the time, and probably didn't exactly eat the best stuff for his health.
I think you're misunderstanding him. When he says "my job prospects" I think he means "our job prospects." Meanwhile, I'm out of the job market next year. I'll be echoing MLK: "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty I'm free at last!"
As for the greens, I'm OK with them for the most part. I just don't see pot as being an important enough issue to warrant establishing an entire political party around it.
Actually, I think the Greens' main platform is the environment.
I'll even go so far as to say that the first presidential candidate in 2016 who declares universal single-payer health care as a part of their platform will get my vote as long as I don't have to write them in.
We had a Congressional candidate last election, a medical doctor, who wanted medicare for everyone. Unfortunately, the tea party candidate beat him.
I'd like to have a labor party here.
Still reading it, it's rather long, but well written. It's actually the best academic paper I've seen in a while and think their highlighting it was a good move.
I'd like o read your critique of Nobots when I get it finished, it touches on a few of the same things.
Logging is sustainable, so long as the trees are replanted and it isn't done in old growth forests or in an area that would endanger species; we're going through one of the largest mass extinctions the Earth has seen, mostly from habitat destruction, and man is almost 100% responsible.
But there's nothing whatever wrong with tree farms.
As opposed to Korea, not Boston.
We have car parks for city people who insist on walking around with those ridiculous toy cars, leaking all over the sidewalks and making all sorts of annoying noise. Of course, I think it is silly to use scarce open space in our parks for such frivolity, but enough people insist on having these little trophies that I'm apparently in the minority.
The speech work is being done in Boston because - they figure if Siri can correctly interpret words spoken by a Bostonian, it'll have no trouble with folks who speak actual English.
I don't doubt that there are plenty of examples that you could point to. However, the markets in Europe and the US are in general very open to outside tech goods. If I were making some kind of widget for the European market, I could easily make it in China so long as shipping wasn't too big of an issue. And I'm not even talking about manufacture, I'm talking about an engineering center. Even if I were making a product that had to be manufactured in the EU for some reason, I could still do the engineering in China.
Yes, but I haven't seen too many of such incidents in the tech fields. Farming always gets people fired up.
