but if you can lower the inertial mass of your spaceship can't you accelerate at ridiculous rates?
That would certainly be the first step. The next technological leap would be to advance to ludicrous speed.
Actually, overuse of neurons can cause them to inflame and die. That's one of the major causes of Alzheimer's.
Scientists are still trying to find the exact cause, but nothing has linked it to "overuse" of neurons. If anything, there is some evidence that mental stimulation could hold off or slow the progress of the disease.
Recently Oracle, announced the procurement of the Sun God Ra, after he defeated Osiris and left Isis searching the river for his missing uh... firmware.
I know this concept might be foreign to you, but Isis is female.
"His" = "Osiris"
I know this concept might be foreign you, but maybe you should bone up on Egyptian mythology before making snarky comments like this (though it was Set that defeated Osiris, not Ra).
because we're worried Obama wants to derail our gravy train.
What the hell does Obama have to do with it? SETI is privately funded. Get your facts straight before you use the topic for a political jab that makes no sense.
In the year 1,502,000....
War was beginning
As long as the list is publicy managed, this shouldn't be a problem. Obviously, no way it can happen in the real world.
So instead of censorship imposed by the government, you'd have a censorship imposed by a tyrrany of the majority.
Flying pasta monsters aside, how is SETI different from ID? ID does not assert any preconception regarding the nature of the designer, so you can't pull the natural, super-natural distinction. In fact, ID has the advantage of a signal to inspect, that of DNA. SETI has no signal to apply "intelligence" detection algorithms to.
Because the basic hypothesis of SETI is provable, thus making SETI a real science, while ID can produce no proof whatsoever, thus making it faith-based or pseudo-science at best.
Or to put it simply: If SETI detects a signal of intelligent origin tomorrow, that will prove its hypothesis that intelligent life exists elsewhere. ID can offer no such tangible, verifiable evidence.
Or better yet, taser underwear.
(this post unlikely to be modded up as getting the reference requires playing a thoroughly unrealistic game)
Unfortunately for your argument, that part of the sixth amendment does not seem to have been incorporated against the states, so Texas could theoretically never tell you why you were being held, even if a federal prosecutor would have to tell you under the sixth amendment.
Please take a moment to read the whole article about incorporation.
From the Wikipedia article you linked to:
Right to notice of accusations
* This right has been incorporated against the states. See In re Oliver, 333 U.S. 257 (1948).
Perhaps you're the one that needs to read more carefully.
Doesn't Tails qualify as a furry?
He gets a pass because he's one of the original characters. Plus, if they do it like the original games where he tags along with you, you get to have fun watching him blunder into things, get himself "killed", and then helicopter back onscreen by spinning his two tails.
Ah, the simple pleasures of yesteryear
I don't use drugs because they are illegal. My employer could terminate my employment, I could be jailed, etc. If drugs were legalized, then there would be no barrier (however artificial) for me to start using drugs. Maybe I enjoy it and starts affecting my productivity, my way of life, I become addicted, etc. So while this might be in the minority, there are a number of citizens who are not using drugs for the sole reason that they are NOT legal. Legalizing them would remove this barrier and actually cause more drug use. I am not saying that is horrible, but it is a side-effect that is seldom brought up.
So, in effect, you're asking the government to be responsible for what you see is a weakness in YOURSELF.
No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
