They should've funded a brain-scanning gadget for Apple IIs.
Very interesting perspective. Goes to show that there's no justice in this world, only competing self interests.
BTW, posts like this are the reason why I'm still on Slashdot.
Dow is at all time highs.
That's precisely when you want to get out, i.e. sell. You don't want to sell at the rock bottom, do you?
Another recession is overdue, and it's coming within the next 4 years. It's the nature of the economic cycle. There is nothing Trump (or for that matter, Clinton) can do about it. We wouldn't be a capitalist society if the president has any real control over the economy.
The average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. household is ~10,000 kWh. Not sure about Ukraine but let's use the same number as a ballpark estimate. Population of Ukraine is ~45 million, or ~17 million households.
Assuming your number is correct, and assuming the latest ~20% solar cell efficiency, it requires ~850 million sqare meters to power all households in Ukraine. That's ~328 sqare miles, or ~18 miles x 18 miles.
In comparison, the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is 1,004 square miles: https://www.google.com/search?...
Truth needs context. Even the undeniable, scientific truth of Newton's Laws, are only true within the context of non-relativistic, non-quantum environments. "The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple."
I know, it's mind-blowing. Better retreat back to the catchy, comforting soundbites spewed by your favorite candidate (whichever it may be), that fits your simplistic worldview.
To continue on my previous post... It's a relevant and fun article. I clicked it and expected the Slashdot audience to tear the whole concept apart from the technical standpoint, and was not disappointed.
"Sensations and feelings", really?? Nothing wrong with them and we all have them, but they are almost the antithesis of "intellectual capacity". Also, the all lower-case sentences really don't help, especially when complaining about teenagers. The irony...
Believe it or not, politics (as well as religion) is largely an emotional topic. It's hard to sway emotion with logic, least with an FB post.
Even with the dubious 20% efficiency claim, he'd be getting 20kW. At today's ~12 cents per kWh in the U.S., he'd be selling it at ~$85 a month. Seems hardly worth the hassle.
It's surrounded by Texas..
In case you are a Texan and offended, I live in Houston, which doesn't have a "tech" scene in the strict sense of software/hardware startups, but otherwise is quite heavy in science and engineering in general, and probably has the lowest cost of living out of all major cities in the US.
Just came across this picture yesterday, better than the one in the article:
What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
