Comment Re:E.g. We can't use it if we can't cheat (Score 1) 66

The reality with financial transactions is some decisions are actually reversed or rolled back. What do you do when your ledger says a transaction occurred that actually didn't occur? I am not sure editing is right solution, but neither is simply putting in a second transaction crediting the money back as now you have 2 transactions that didn't occur in your ledger.

Whether it is his protectionist economic views or his stance on world politics or the withdrawal from that stage it will have a massive effect on the rest of the world. The Large economies of the world cannot do anything of significance at home or abroad without affecting others.

did you not even read the summary. even iPhone 6's and certainly my galaxy worked fine with the gloves being sold that would allow you to use finger sensitive touch screens, that no longer works. In winter on my Galaxy I can enter a pin using gloves rather than a fingerprint. that is no longer possible with a 7 apparently.

Comment Re:How to Argue About Doping in Sport (Score 1) 97

So you believe all top level sports should only be available to people willing to dope themselves up to the eyeballs is your basic belief as every sport will always have those willing to go past safe limits if permitted. personally if you want that then you are welcome with those athletes to start your own competition that permits, perhaps you will even get enough people that only want to watch to see what the best chemists can do to the human body, personally it doesn't interest me nor I think most normal people.
