After that silhouette of Uhura I have to agree with the ban on nudity.
Exactly my point. The sooner we get fully-automated cars, the better. Humans simply cannot perform reliably at all times behind the wheel.
To be entirely honest, I think that historians will look back and see that this election marked the beginning of the decline of the American Empire
I disagree. In the not-too-distant future which resembles The Walking Dead, there won't be any historians.
I expect to there be less government under Trump, I may be wrong though. I expect reduction in government interference to the individuals (and when I say individuals I do mean people who are mostly abused by the power, those who have something to take away from, thus businesses and yes businesses are people.) That's the only thing that matters, one thing, the only thing, the singularity of things: less government interference.
How was Biden a buffoon? After Obama totally flubbed in his debate to Romney, Biden beat the pants off of Paul Ryan in his debate, making it look like maybe the two should trade places.
And Cheney was no buffoon either, in fact quite the opposite. It was GWB who was a buffoon, and Cheney seemed to be the evil puppetmaster running things behind the scenes.
Sony Pictures reported an operating loss of $64.9 million on revenues of $3.28 billion for the six months ending in September.
But television program production is doing OK, Sony now sees the combined movie and TV unit generating about $8 billion in revenue for the fiscal year, with an operating profit of $25 million.
What some writer decides today what happened in a fictitious past. This is primarily caused by s/he wanting a personal thumbprint on a character set combined with an inability to imagine extensions to current story lines. In most cases this leads to conflict in story lines that produce confusion in the readership and at times actual outrage at the bastardization and extreme vandalism of admired characters (see Green Lantern).
Explain to me again why this is more reassuring than someone who is an old hand at foreign policy and a known commodity?
Because while he is thin-skinned, he doesn't have Hillary Clinton's decades of history of corruptly exploiting public office to enrich her and her family while baldly lying to your face about it. She's made herself rich - not by building hotels or other constructive things, but by selling political access to people like overseas dictators who don't mind things like throwing gay guys off of rooftops to please Allah.
So we don't like his manners, but we do like her serial lying, corruption, and incompetence
Despite CNN's near-invitation to do so?
I am quite certain that 6502 was not an Intelligent design at all. It was mostly a random collection of metal oxide semiconductors thrown into a bin and then shaken, not stirred...
>The take-away point I get from this is that we may need another revolutionary technology or two (fully three-dimensional integrated circuits? IC's based on carbon instead of silicon?) before we can model the sentient mind as similar to an artificially created device
Memristors already exist and are going to revolutionize the computing world by combining processing with storage (and eliminating the difference between RAM and long term storage). If somebody knows if that will take 5 or 50 years to get out of the labs, they are not saying so far as I know.
However, they might just be the next great leap towards an artificial neuron as well.
That's BS; most people pirate stuff because they don't want to pay, plain and simple, and for everyone that insists it's only to "try" content, and that they buy it if it's good, they represent a tiny fraction of people, and 99% of the ones claiming it are f#@kling liars.
As far as we know, our computer has never had an undetected error. -- Weisert
