Not in evidence.
Not in evidence.
But it didn't put a time-frame on it. Perhaps by the time we actually come up with universal constructors or replicator technology, that will be true.
It's also possible that by then when it's just not that impressive anymore, we'll be more utilitarian.
Nobody said Mao was a nice guy. Even the USSR didn't like him.
But the whole communism thing did catch them up fast. It can't take them into the future. That's why they've introduced markets and entrepreneurship.
Many of the scientists you read about in text books are examples of well off people looking for something to do.
So? Many WWI veterans addicted to heroine lead productive lives.
Even many stoners back their way into the workforce. It starts with constructing ever more entertaining and artistic ways to smoke and eventually ends up in a small informal business doing the same for others. From there it's a slippery slope down to general woodworking and non smoking related decorations.
It's not just Carlin, I've seen it happen.
Why haven't you done it already?
He's saying that you as an American citizen who is not in Brazil are not under the jurisdiction of Brazilian justice system.
Perhaps you didn't realize that most people don't even want speakers to emit sound 24x7 in their electronics.
But if you do want to do both, the basic process isn't THAT amazingly complex. The ambient sound will be the difference between the signal from the preamp and the signal on speaker wire +/- some amplifier noise and gain adjustments.
Op-amps aren't all that exotic.
If you have the digital output available, you can skip all of that and just send the results of an AtoD converter with the speaker wire as an input and sort it all out in post-processing.
Your lack of imagination isn't a failure of understanding on my part.
Coming soon to a theater near you: "The Wolf of The Wolf of Wall Street".
None of the municipal ISPs I am aware of are in any way mandated monopolies. Others are welcome to come in and compete, no guns involved. Many were set up at arm's length, expected to pay back their startup costs. In many cases they happened after the area ISPs already stated flatly that they would NOT service the area. So it's not like they were clamoring to compete. If there was a gun, it was wielded by the invisible hand.
Interestingly, they sued after having refused to service an area, presumably because they wanted fallow ground they could expand into one day at their leisure.
I have lived in places where there was an electric co-op. There was no competition there. I have no idea if it was illegal to compete or if they couldn't beat the price and service provided by the co-op, but either way, they weren't there.
So follow the money back.
Arrests for what?
For looking at a page that offers magnet links that you might or might not access?
So why can't they arrest the scam callers impersonating the IRS and demanding money? Fraud is illegal in most countries.
You know you've landed gear-up when it takes full power to taxi.
