That's largely because being a conservative these days largely seems to involve being mad about something.
Its funny that people today think 80 hours of work is a lot
You're lying to yourself by pretending you'd get the same thing done in 25-30 if you ignored the 'unproductive' time
It blows me away how people can be so oblivious to the fact that a 40 hour work week is a ridiculously short amount of actual week, especially for most of slashdot who sits behind a desk and doesn't actually 'work' more than pressing some keys and sitting through meetings.
No no, he ideolizes the future where Bezos doesn't have to work, and where he's the rule of a Metropolis like dystopia.
Why is pricing carbon anti-conservative? It's eminently conservative, putting the job of reducing emissions in the hands of the market.
I think scientists can make some larger statements on the impacts. No one can tell you what exactly it would be like at any particular location, But what you're doing is exaggerating the amount of uncertainty, and then trying to defend warming trends by invoking even less certain predictions. It's hard not to see how you aren't just being a contrarian simply because you don't like the answers science can provide.
When rain belts shift northward in North America, arid conditions will begin to become the norm in large parts of the American Midwest, and that will mean American food security will become, at some point over the next century so, one of the most serious issues the US has ever had to face. And this isn't a matter if whether it will happen or not, the debate is over WHEN it will happen.
Pumping vast amounts of formerly sequestered CO2 into the atmosphere is just plain bad. We should be moving at all speed to alternative energy sources, and either leaving the oil and coal in the ground, or finding some other use for it that doesn't involve releasing CO2 into the atmosphere.
You do understand, I trust, that different countries have different birth rates, right, so while one country may have a very high birth rate, another country may have a very low one. You know, how Japan's population is shrinking, and India's is growing?
It often makes me wonder if being a political partisan either causes stupidity, or political partisans are just inherently stupid people.
My car stereo only takes CD's, so yeah... still using optical media. I rarely ever use DVD's any more; only for archival grade DVD backups (and even those are becoming increasingly rare) and have never even bothered with BD. I own a BD player as an amplifier for my TV because the audio quality was better than a similarly priced home theater system or *spit* "soundbar", but have never tried an actual BD disc.
Your nVidia example proves my point. Highly specialized domain. Yet I'm the idiot
. . . and that only works in extremely specialized instances.
You do realize 99.9999999999% of the applications out there CAN'T USE THE SLI version right?
And you realize thats a very specialized instance, and they'll be the first to tell you its close to its limits for that specialized instance
And that $1 sim card comes with unlimited, free bandwidth? Wow, that IS better than open wi-fi!
It is masked but always present. I don't know who built to it. It came before the first kernel.
