Re: Muscle, not fat

Post 1989 overweight is not pre 1989 overweight. In older days there was fat and healthy, not anymore. Healthy and anorexic on the other hand (was 20 is now 18,5) is the new standard.

The Turk

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.

This kind of books is a modern form of religious litterature, with creational myths and his pantheon of deities-saints to be explained and quoted to the believers.

Re: Nice?

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)

Nice?

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 ...

Wait until the preliminary selection:

Re: One major disadvantage robots have over humans:

Re: Maybe NATO should follow the lead of the USMC?
