Yeah, "a crushed shoulder joint
Unless maybe she was 100' up the tree, and hit a lot of branches on the way down.
You've got to admit that the internet makes election years way less stuffy than they used to be.
Why do people think things like the Bechdel test are worth more than a fart in the breeze
A test is just providing some objective information about something.
What you do with that is your business.
The Bechdel test was presumably invented to identify movies that fail the Bechdel test as deficient, problematic, etc.
But the test can just as easily be interpreted the other way. Netflix might someday soon come up with a category called "Bechdel Failures" and learn that it is extremely popular with men.
I think it would be great if there was some kind of logo or something that indicated if a movie passed or failed the Bechdel test; feminists could look for passing films, and I could look for failing films.
I think my Linux is more secure than my Windows, but honestly it only takes one exploit.
If the spooks or large organized crime want in, they're in. Small fry *may* be kept out by best practices, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Anything secret shouldn't be on a computer, let alone a computer on the internet. But then there's the eternal trade-off between security and convenience.
How many softwares do you have?
What's missing from this discussion is any indication of what percentage of the refund-requesters actually put 50 hours into it.
For it to be not-uncommon in 70 years, a lot of 76 year olds now living will have to still be alive then.
Interesting fact (IIRC), if he lived to 969 then he died in the year of the flood.
California has given up on bringing new power generation online,
"Almost half of all capacity added in 2013 [across the US] was located in California." "Nearly 60% of the natural gas capacity [across the US] added in 2013 was located in California." http://www.eia.gov/todayinener...
California's total electrical generation capacity has gone from 55,344 MW in 2001, to 79,359 MW in 2015. That's an average increase of 1,644 MW of new capacity going online each and every year.
Energy standards in California call for 33 percent of the stateâ(TM)s power to come from renewables by 2020 and 50 percent by 2030, and so the state is building new wind and solar capacity as fast as possible. The recently built Ivanpah plant was the world's largest, and it's in California, not Arizona, for good reason.
In fact you can get a current list of power plants planned, under construction, and newly online, here:
Conservation is fine is a short-term solution to shortage - of anything - but in the long run there is no substitute for generating more power
California "has one of the lowest per capita total energy consumption levels in the country. California state policy promotes energy efficiency. The state's extensive efforts to increase energy efficiency and the implementation of alternative technologies have restrained growth in energy demand." https://www.eia.gov/state/anal...
Do people really have to watch HD videos on cellular? Can't they wait until they get home near their WiFi's?
The cellular market is competitive, while the wired internet market is not. It won't be long before cellular internet service is cheaper than wired. In fact that has long since happened for light users.
You get charged about 3X as much for the same DSL speeds today as you did a decade ago. Cable has side-stepped the issue by just NOT providing lower speed service, and having their lowest-cost offering being $60/mo. Just look at Charter buying TW and dropping those pesky $15 service plans. And these are increasingly getting a low bandwidth cap, and customers are being forced into bundles.
My old flip-phone from 10 years ago lasted about a week on a single charge. Obviously, though, that's because it was doing jack-crap processing-wise compared to the mini-supercomputers we now all have in our pockets,
But how many years of process shrinks, improved LEDs, better radios, higher capacity batteries, etc., has it been since that flip phone was made? If manufacturers were chasing battery life, instead of biggest screen, thinnest phone and fastest processor, we could easily have smartphones running for several days between charges. Charging your phone twice a day has become the new normal, so nobody returns their power-hungry phones, and it's not prominently advertised, so manufacturers don't expect more sales from improving upon run-time and don't bother.
Think of it like web search engines just before Google came along... Everybody sucks equally, and one disruptive innovator jumping in could wipe the floor with everybody else.
