An experienced glider pilot has one more vairometer to use - his own posterior. One can feel speed changes in it
Nope. As you say it, own own posterior is an accelerometer, measuring the speed changes, NOT a variiometer, measuring the speed i.e. the position change. You're one derivative wrong.
Piloting without vario is easy to do when you have visual cues around to help assessing your vertical speed, but when higher up in the sky it's really difficult to tell the difference between a steady +1m/s and -1m/s. (World class paraglider competition pilot here, and from the few flights I did in sailplane it's not much different).
As for stories, the biggest complaints people have are 1) the story is inappropriate (not something Slashdotters are generally interested in, something that seems like shameless advertising disguised as a story, etc
I for one enjoy the slashvertisements, as long as they are clearly marked as such.
I enjoy them because of the very nature of Slashdot: lots of knowledgeable people will comment on the product and tell me why it's good/not so good, or will show better replacements, better ways of doing the same thing a simpler way, etc. That's often precious and not seen anywhere else.
Personally I'm in favour of universial basic income, provided all other benefits are removed at the same time. You get what you get, and no, that won't let you live in a decent area of a major city, there won't be any extra payout for special needs, etc.
So once you're in that "basic income" system of yours, I guess you're stuck living in some ghetto and would have no way of getting out of it.
They matter in 80% of the cell phones in the world that deploy the linux kernel.
Not really, all those phones are stuck at 3.xx. You'll have to wait for quite a long time to have 80% of all phones (or even Android phones) to reach 4.4.
