doomed to fail

1) His name is Pratt

Not forgetting Hedy Lamarr who co-invented the use of spread spectrum techniques to make radio-guided torpedoes harder for enemies to detect or jam.

Another celeb involved in tech

The rather good English actor, Reginald Denny was behind the first large-scale production of unmanned aerial vehicles – one customer was the US military. A certain Norma Jeane was spotted by a photographer whilst she was working at a manufacturing plant.

Prats are prats.

That's the cold, harsh reality. You can try to encrypt it all you like, with whatever waffling you choose, but it won't affect the fact that you are a prat.

nice to know

that the US version of "I'm a celebrity" has as lax a definition of 'celebrity' as the UK version.

Funny.

Some of the smartest wonks I went to school with were Philosophy majors who were working on AI.

But I think that was an exception.

Not so sure about Pratt though. He actually made money from not having any talent. I doubt anyone here can claim that. However, getting paid to play the role of Zippy the Pinhead and doing cyber security? Two different things entirely.

If you think about it, Pratt doesn't provide cred, but 'flash' to get the cash.

And for that, he'll make some money out of this.

BTW, not all in Hollywood are morons. Wood went to MIT and didn't graduate because he didn't take a PE class. Aston Kutcher ?sp? made a fortune and married a MILF.

But a FAIL none the less.
