It looks too slick. Not sure how to explain that, but terminator 2 felt like it had weight, grime, dirt and dust to it. It was such a good film, it's going to be hard to reboot from that.

Used the optical intellimouse for work about 20 years ago, the extra buttons mapped to common AutoCAD keys, made my job so much faster, and mouse just felt perfect for my hand. Makes me think I should replace my current work mouse, which is some dell thing.

Sorry to hear this Blue, always loved hearing about what he was up to, as well as Hudson in her time.

a New York hedge fund called Acme Equities swooped in with an offer to buy the 46-year-old plant. According to Power Magazine, Acme intends to retrofit the plant with carbon capture and sequestration technology. If the deal goes through, Acme would use the captured carbon in enhanced oil recovery, where carbon is forced into older or weak oil wells to improve the pressure of the well and extract more oil

That doesn't really count as carbon capture if you're using it to pull more of it out the ground...

Now, what's the difference between an invisible, incorporeal, floating dragon who spits heatless fire and no dragon at all? If there's no way to disprove my contention, no conceivable experiment that would count against it, what does it mean to say that my dragon exists? Your inability to invalidate my hypothesis is not at all the same thing as proving it true. Claims that cannot be tested, assertions immune to disproof are veridically worthless, whatever value they may have in inspiring us or in exciting our sense of wonder. What I'm asking you to do comes down to believing, in the absence of evidence, on my say-so.

And even then, it's thought a GRB might not be so catastrophic...

Put flask in freezer for five minutes, or pour coffee/tea from height. They're good flasks, just too good.

Comcast now likely to outbid Murdoch for sky in the UK. Comcast the lesser of two evils compared to Murdoch?

You can get a lot done in c++, it's hard, dirty, but a well supported, evolved language.

G sync is much stricter for monitor manufacturers to comply, thus easier to buy a better quality monitor. Freesync less so, but things getting better.

I felt genuinely excited watching the video. Many hours spent creating Duke 3d levels and working out how sector effectors, etc worked. That's over 20 years ago now. More amazing that my mother didn't question purchasing the game for me, or the original grand theft auto...

You don't need Amazon, buffet, or JPMorgan to reduce costs of healthcare. Just regulate the costs of treatments. The healthcare companies are willfully taking advantage of an uncompetitive market and treating patients like cash cows. Why do they charge so much? Because they can.

Vodka usually gives the cleanest hangover. Used to do half a bottle and get up for work next day no problem.

Yeah, I think I read NJ was vying for the new Amazon HQ by offering $7B in tax credits? How will they ever make that money back? It should be illegal to exempt a single company from taxation for those purposes. You're gutting your ability to improve local infrastructure to support those extra workers.

I disagree. A company like Amazon hiring 10000+ workers in your area is worth a lot more than 7 billion dollars to a local economy in the long term and will attract other companies. States are not pants on head dumb, they have people doing the opportunity cost on these alternatives.

The bigger question with corporations is how you keep them there but its not so easy to pick up and move such a large operations center in this case.

It's tax breaks anyway, politicians love tax breaks because its a line item in their budgets, money they never truly saw. When its coming straight out of your cashflow though then they play hard ball.

It's hard to say outright, tax breaks bad, as you say there are the benefits too. Sometimes it's just good to question is the system working correctly for everyone. I am not against capitalism, I think we wouldn't be posting these messages without it, but I think we should treat it like a machine - machines work for us, but need to be looked after managed once in a while to stop it running away with itself.

Yes, amazon really needs tax breaks, effectively subsidising the company, as they are really poor and don't have much money.
