One of many reasons I would much rather travel by car/bus/train than airplane.
Oh, don't worry, Homeland Security wants TSA to set up security stations for bus and train terminals too!
the options are a 300 pound flight taking around 7 hours or a trans-Atlantic ferry which taking 8 days and costing 1500 for a shared cabin or 2000 pounds for a single cabin.
Well, it looks like market forces have now determined the price of privacy (or the cost of convenience and expediency in privacy lost, depending on your priorities)...
this is not about Facebook analyzing YOU specifically and predicting a breakup. It's an analysis of a big group by averages.
But Facebook is the tool/medium through which the analysis is being conducted. Thus part of the point is the fact that Facebook can now be used to do these kinds of analyses/social observations/stalking.

For gods sake, there's only one spot where it really matters and yet men still make that mistake anyway and pay for it for 18 years.
Human biology drives males to that one particular spot. Otherwise, we'd all be extinct...

It's my understanding that we can only manufacture ridiculously minute quantities of the stuff, and that may take more energy to make than we'll get out of it anyways.
Given that entropy is always staying the same or increasing, yes it most probably will take more energy to create that antimatter than what we get out of it.
