You mean when someone shows that your premise is not only wrong but completely wrong? The dividing European political dichotomy(ies) is ridiculous because all the parties are left-wing, differing only in degree. In other words, it depends on perspective. Then there's the issue of what defines right and left being somewhat different in both places.

Accusing Americans of amerocentrism while judging them from eurocentric perspectives and biases is wildly hypocritical to say the least.

I agree, pence could've handled that much better. There were plenty of escapes from the fallacies presented by the performers that would've made a solid public statement after the performance. If the performers weren't the snowflakes they were, they would've performed the show and saved the politics for a sane discussion afterward, instead of weaving passive aggression and leers throughout the performance.

Kelloggs could've said "We like people who like kellogg's cornflakes" instead of taking sides, and, iirc, it was a starbucks employee who bitched about writing 'trump' on a cup which set that incident off. Companies really shouldn't be taking sides in identity politics. It just shrinks their maximum potential markets.

None of this compares to the decades of cry-bullying by left wing demagogues, esp on university campuses. These kids aren't learning this behavior in vacuums, and these days, it starts in grade school. These PC wankers are one of the big reasons trump won despite his obvious flaws. Trump supporters have a lot of catching up to do in order to reach equity with this legacy.

Your conclusion is illogical.

All the convoluted modulation required to squeeze all that bw into sane amounts of spectrum multiplied by the number of devices in close proximity will inevitably be less efficient than hardwired equivalents using similar modulation methods.

Even if somehow you managed to squeeze all of this fantasy into a mobile formfactor, someone will want a whole bunch of it crammed into a much bigger box because top performance is more important than portability for the use case.

I know people are obsessed with mobile, but there will always be those who require hardware and software that allows more flexible user-defined workflows. Mobile's locked down software distribution and fisher price interfaces cannot do this.
