Tell us what else leans to the left from your perspective. The horizon, maybe?
I'm not sure there's a correlation between bureaucracy and "leftists", but I'm willing to concede that putting one dictator in charge is an effective way to get rid of bureaucracy. We'll probably differ on whether that's a good thing.
Plus, a terrorist could load it full of explosives and program in the target and turn it loose like a smart bomb.
Trucks are more expensive than suicide bombers. In fact, I'll wager that hijacking autonomous vehicles to deliver bombs will remain more difficult and expensive than brainwashing "martyrs" into doing the job.
So a very simple explanation is gravity from the mass of the galaxy warps space in such a way that mass around it seems sped up.
Yes, astrophysics and cosmology are very simple when you don't bother with numbers.
I'd be happy to see your personal theory peer-reviewed, but I'm afraid the reviewers will probably want to see some numbers. For bonus points, make some falsifiable quantitative predictions. ("Future scientists will laugh at today's dark-matter theories" doesn't count.)
The reason governments are attempting to ban cash worldwide is exactly because it's so hard to do exactly what you're describing.
I would love to see a few studies comparing the effects of age-related cognitive decline to the effects of incessant, compulsive TwitSnapGramBook activity. Not that I'd want to make any unflattering generalizations about younger workers, of course.
Is that a branch of the Federal Oligarchy Enforcement Service?
Why is this on Slashdot? Is it because the 3D render looks pretty?
I prefer all the "concept vehicles" in Star Wars, personally.
And there are sketches on DeviantArt that are more detailed.
I solved a lot of problems, developed algorithms, designed, analysed and optimised systems, but never encountered riddles.
Riddles are questions with simple answers which are deliberately obscure.
I see that you don't work in Perl.
Well, that would be a considerable improvement from the number of tears induced by existing plans.
Most geeks who are in the market for a Pi have several bluetooth keyboards, mice and other accessories laying around.
But the point isn't to use it as a computer, as much as it is to use it as a component for which you might not need any dedicated accessories.
VR can "fail", and will, because people don't stick with games where the main challenge is "keep from barfing".
To clarify: today's VR will fail, as did VR from the 1990s and 2000s. We might get there in the 2020s, with tracking cameras operating at kilohertz frame rates, displays refreshing at 300Hz or better, and a graphics pipeline that doesn't introduce more than a frame or two of latency -- IF game designers put some serious thought into maintaining consistent motion perception among all modes (visual-field, inner-ear, proprioceptive).
Of course, the most pernicious diseases are those congenital disorders of metabolism that cause you to develop the wrong skin/hair/eye color, or the wrong adult height or weight. At least, that's what the money will say.
And perhaps 130 years from now, someone will find a way to encapsulate or solidify the electrolyte to prevent spillage or evaporation. Maybe they'll call it a dry cell.
Do you want Shonokins? Because that's how you get Shonokins.
When it is incorrect, it is, at least *authoritatively* incorrect. -- Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy
