Your Constitutional Rights have freed you from morality.
Freed me from morality? How is killing someone EVER the moral thing to do? I don't care what the convicted person did -- killing someone is never the moral thing to do. As many other people have already said, two wrongs don't make a right. "An eye for an eye" is a rather barbaric way of exacting justice. Perhaps I misunderstand what you're getting at here, but I don't see how my constitutional rights free me from morality here at all.
Oklahoma didn't realize anything wouldn't pass muster. They were shocked and horrified by a gruesome sight.
After reading a few other articles on this subject, I don't even think they were shocked and horrified. They've only stayed the other execution for two weeks. Does anyone really think they can conduct a full investigation into what happened here in two weeks?
To all the morons criticizing equal opportunity: What you are against of is called "Affirmative action", not equal opportunity.
Unless you admit you're racists, if so please continue.
Uh oh... I turn 35 this year. I guess I only have a few months left to appreciate new technology before I start yelling at kids to get off my lawn.
I would guess a fairly big factor is because generally the game logic which runs of the processor doesn't degrade well. With graphics you can lower resolutions, change texture sizes and add additional lighting effects which are optional so the game just looks a bit worse but plays the same. Trying to do the same with game logic is much harder, maybe some adaptive AI could be made to play better on faster hardware plus some extra graphical effects probably need some extra processor time but these changes would be much less.
Then the developers want the game to be playable on as many machines as is feasible so they head for as low a target as possible which is a single threaded machine. Making it work on multiple cores then turns into a pretty difficult task for very little gain because of the above.
No it can't. The pixels have no information about the direction from which each photon arrived. Without a lense each of your pixels will receive photons from every point in the scene with no way to sort them out.
Maybe you can't buy happiness, but these days you can certainly charge it.
