Big as a whale shark?

One of the first great computers is the chess playing mechanical turk. Smoke and mirrors, but at the same time more real than Babbage (collectible) industrial garbage.

The commission needs to be created out of sunshine and fresh air (and something with an unicorn I don't remember), ensuring it's absolute independence
The sun is just falling apart to form two separate stars. The filament story is just for the panick prone.

Predicting the past
Boffins predicting yesterdays good enough schemes
Oh mine, there is even a difference between what I say and what I do.
As for Hermione, I mostly read her as Herman and Harry Potter was Harriette, just to check the equalities (it sometimes helps with some authors)
She earned fortune and fame representing a not so nice-friendly person, and now she proposes everyone should to be nice? Come on Hermione, cool down, you signed that 'be nice' paper, did you?
Re: Why does the Moon have gravity?
"All physical bodies with mass exert a gravitational effect on everything".
We are talking about a simulator implementing a pure Newtonian universe (making abstraction of Newton's view of photons etc.) So no gravity effects on light, scores, lives ...
Fight it out
Allen has the best lawyers, but the faundation still has tanks.
Re: what i would like to know
Are the new scans not from Boltzmann but from ORBit?
Iraq: 500000 to 1000000+ deaths up and counting. Oh, and some harsh word exchanges on the social media.

Take regular news, just add [Satire] et voila!
Hello there and goodbyes here
Stumbled on this paranoiacs cave, no social accounts either, but common every decent human I know has one.

Re: Oh noes...
I have only seen the first, episode whatever, and went back to Valérian after that.
It's more painful to Microsoft than Apple I think as Apple does not aim to anything other than the premium market.
"lead-lined boxes" the lead is against superman x-ray vision, whatever that is
Good idea, and in the meantime Android on a Microsoft-Nokia. Please?
So now I can see a Bieber clip and share with likeminded the joy, where others would only see the echoes of their private hell.
Re: Back of the envelope calculation
A good way to kill yourself was to pressurize a car tire to 10 bar and look at what happens when the tire explodes.
Does Google pay a license for this?
Re: First political dissident
This is a post 1986 remark, the American history is a blank slate. Job well done.
Wait until the preliminary selection:
Test 1 basics: Stay on a rock somewhere in the pacific for 19 (maybe 30) months with a very limited supply of food, water and booze and a gun with one bullet. Most scammers will chicken out.
Test 2 ....
Re: For $2.49
That's also why I don't drink beer unless it's 50 cents the pint
What's wrong with looking for chubby .... wait .... oh
Re: Don't believe everything you read
No, he believes everything he writes, just not this one.
Re: One major disadvantage robots have over humans:
I am not certain, the moment the robots come up with more armor than a human, say 30kg*3 and more firepower a M2 (not a puny M60 like Rambo) people may think twice.
Taken? So Twitter is the name of his daughter?
It's even more likely that the breaker was correctly configured and that the system got not overly critically overloaded as usual
Re: And television sitcoms cause ...

I want a Sweet Pop icon, Madness the final frontier ...
Re: But for one reason or another...

"If you can start early in life getting people accustomed to living in surveillance society ..."
Why not orange jumpsuits, 3% will wear them and 33% should have worn them on the same grounds but where favored by 'chance'.

So when I am asked to look at a third man's poorly setup windows 8 computer without any shortcuts, I am what? Probably hot and surprisingly unproductive?
'dumb' like real life people carrying a bullet proof vest but no helmet ? I mean you are more likely to survive a pneumothorax than a spilled brain.
Manly? The Fort Hood shooting was done with a .22, less than the Beretta .25 and all the others. Any gun becomes lethal once you start shooting.

no gps for my laptop either
