You're giving the monsters too much credit.
You're underestimating them. They wouldn't be where they are today without the ability to think ahead.
Show many ANY time in nature where plants have modified themselves with ANIMALS and FISH and then and ONLY then will I buy your bullshit, because in case you ain't been keeping up on current events they have been mixing everything from starfish to grasshopper into plants to increase yields and make them grow larger.
Happens all the time between animal and bacterial species when viruses attack, and to a lesser degree with plants. A virus damages the DNA of the cell, and brings with it DNA from whatever animal or plant produced it. And there are other mechanisms that can produce similar results. See Horizontal Gene Transfer for more info.
You're both wrong. Google is spying on you, and then handing that data to the NSA.
On the contrary. We all have responsibility for national security. And what is being done today by our government in the name of national security threatens national security.
I only wish I could get paid to advertise this USB stick. I do not declare that it is good, only that it is less crap than the other ones I have tried.
.22LR is a varmint caliber. It's actually illegal to hunt anything bigger than a rabbit with it most places
I solved this problem by buying a 1982 Mercedes. Nobody wants to steal it.
How is it relevant to mention a weight of 3 tons in a weightless environment??
It didn't start in a weightless environment. There's an approximate cost per pound to orbit somewhere between 5k and 10k USD per. It's relevant so you can do the math
Copyleft makes sure that users retain freedoms, including the freedom to hire developers to make the software do what the user wants.
No, copyleft puts software first, and the user second.
How is that the case? A free software license guarantees four freedoms to the users of a work. Because the work is free, all of its users are free, even if this is freedom is at the expense of some developers' business models.
Without strong copyright laws, something like GPL is totally impossible.
Without software copyright, anybody can obtain a copy of a proprietary program and lawfully disassemble, document, and distribute it.
Skilling's Enron sentence was cut from 23 to 14 years recently. It'll probably be reduced further before he serves his remaing 8 years. I estimate he'll be out on parole in 10 years.
When you think of the sheer amounts of money he could have been skimming off during Enron's "golden years", I'd consider 10 years a pretty good deal.
This had nothing to do with patriarchy or feminism. This has to do with the amoral standards of "elites" and other ascendancies in western society. Cynical fraud has become an accepted standard across our institutions, public and private.
The one day you'd sell your soul for something, souls are a glut.
