"Potentially as large as Mars"?
Reminds me of my old football coach, ever the optimist.
Sports Reporter: "Coach, your quarterback just fumbled the ball several times and threw nothing but interceptions."
Coach: "Yeah, but he has POTENTIAL."

Actually I was the primary author of the WiMAX/802.16 PKMv2 security protocol.
Also I'm the primary designer of current Intel RNGs.
I'm trying really hard to understand the difference between Malware and Windows 10 and..... so far I... well honestly... have not the faintest idea.
1. Malware tricks people into installing it.
2. Once installed it spies on users
Check and Check...
3. Malware monetizes its victims with ads and shit
4. Malware bundles other malware to financially reward the original malware author.
What is the difference? I'm not trying to be a smart alec, or bash Microsoft. This is an honest to god serious question.
What is the daylight between what Microsoft's doing and your average malware vendors business models?
Much of the malware I see these days will actually uninstall itself from add-remove programs... Both Microsoft and Malware vendors generally seem to be trying to walk a tight rope of not acting in a blatantly illegal manner.
What's the difference? Why isn't Windows malware? Why isn't Microsoft a malware vendor?
That's because it's much easier to predict an average over a long term than a specific point at a specific place.
I vote for Trump because I believed there was about a 30% chance he would actually deliver on his promises to stand up to the corporations in favor of the working class. The odds were, and still are, in favor of him being full of shit on those promises. But that 30% chance is still better than the 0% chance that Hillary would have ever stood up for the working class.
"Disagreeing" is one thing. Imprisoning your opposition, threatening them with violence, getting them fired from their jobs, banning them from speaking engagements, harassing them, calling them racists and sexists, etc.--well that's something else entirely. The left stopped merely "disagreeing" some time ago.
Yeah, that's one of many tricks used. Another is to post jobs with ridiculous requirements that make them basically impossible to fill, then running to Congress begging for more visas and citing these unfilled positions as evidence that there aren't enough qualified American workers available.
She had already assured business leaders that she would continue the program unchanged. And she would have likely also labeled anyone opposing the visas as "racists" for daring to question them.
The sad thing is that patriotism and nationalism have become dirty words on the left. It's even worse in Europe, though. Members of the "Britain First" movement are being arrested and persecuted pretty heavily. Shit, you can get into serious trouble there just for selling stuff with the British flag on it. Such is the insane world we live in.
Since the bill supposedly "explicitly prohibits the replacement of American workers by visa holders" this would presumably not be necessary. If Americans are able and willing to do the job, companies shouldn't even be allowed to hire H1B visa holders. Of course, that has never stopped companies from finding a million loopholes and tricks to get around this in the past.
It all comes down to how strictly and consistently the law is actually enforced. Send a few execs to prison for trying to cheat the system and the rest would quickly fall in line. But, campaign promises aside, the odds of THAT happening are slim to none.
Trump cares what people think of him.
Trump cares what some people think of him.
Those proclaiming themselves conservatives or liberals both lost the election and that is not a bad thing. People on both sides of the political divide wasted billions of dollars trying to get their chosen candidates elected.
No, he won because there's a whole swatch of pout and out stupid people in the middle of the country.
But then I realized it was 100% accurate.
English is awesome.
We're talking about EGO. We outweigh everyone else added together.
