DNA changes made us 'the fat primates'.

Pretty sure that wasn't DNA changes, but doughnuts.

The 'D' in DNA stands for doughnut!

Blue, maybe you can try EMDR (or similar) therapy. It seemed to cut my back pain recovery times in half, after a couple of sessions. I don't know why it works exactly, but maybe it resets the anxiety associated with having the pain.

It would help if you read the article. You would realize that the logic operation paper was published only a few weeks ago.

"Original Research: Y. Wan, D. Kienzler, S. Erickson, K.H. Mayer, T.R. Tan, J. Wu, H.M. Vasconcelos, S. Glancy, E. Knill, D.J. Wineland, A.C. Wilson and D. Leibfried. 2019. Quantum gate teleportation between separated zones of a trapped-ion processor. Science. May 31."

jivaro, any links to information on the spinal stimulator you have installed right now? 10 years of constant pain - that sucks. I'm glad you have found a solution!

Hmmm - I thought the translators were both (Chinese-)American? I *think* both are also writers. The 3rd book uses the same translator as the 1st.

Heh, I've read the Commonwealth Saga twice already. Some of the culture novels I've read twice too. My favorite Banks' book is The Bridge, and maybe even The Crow Road, although the latter isn't SF and the former is more fantasy.

Snow Crash was great only because it was fresh and new at the time. The writing style does not age well, compared to Neal's later work. But I read it for a second time maybe 10 years ago or so anyways.

Mr Tact,
Pandora's Star (and the sequels) by Peter F. Hamilton
Excession by Iain M. Banks
Use of Weapons by Iain M. Banks
Feersum Enjinn by Iain M. Banks
Chung Kuo: The Middle Kingdom, by David Wingrove (this makes Game of Thrones look like Disneyland - the first few books are incredible world building with deep characterizations. Like the GoT series, stop reading after book 5 - the author started losing his way.)
Wool by Hugh Howey (ok, not the best thing I've read, but it has some nice fantasy-like qualities that are kind of classical).
Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson (great world building...get it?)
Doomsday Book by Connie Willis
Life During Wartime by Lucius Shephard (I was a teen when I read and even though it was deeply flawed, it made an impression on me)
Glasshouse by Charles Stross (a fun book)
The Atrocity Archives by Charles Stross
The Forge of God by Greg Bear
Startide Rising by David Brin
The Snow Queen by Joan D. Vinge (I read this young as well - made an impression but probably nothing special now)
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson (if you don't like this, maybe you will listen to Reason...)

There are quite a few others but it was so long ago I cannot remember them all.

Sounds like a crap movie, thanks Cranston.
I also ready most of the 3 body problem, and feel like it's a garbage book also.


I didn't like Three Body Problem either - but I finished it anyways. The ending had me intrigued despite the rest of the book's problems. The sequels are on a whole other level - they are incredible masterworks of science fiction, on par with Alfred Bester. The best SF I've read in years. And I've read a sh*tload of SF.

1st book is weak. 2nd book is great fun. The 3rd book is a masterpiece.

Ugh - I had so many LED and CFL bulbs die on me within months of purchase. I had to switch back to incandescents for a number of years. Lately, they are getting better (particularly Ikea and Phillips brands).

Avoid anything made by Globe.

Congrats to Blue and Mrs. Blue!

Also, Kingdom Rush Frontiers for iOS and Google Play are free this weekend only. Normally around $3 or $4.

The original one, Kingdom Rush, is also free (but probably always been free?).

Doesn't the protection rate for that vaccine seems pretty low to anyone else?

A "study" of employees at one retailer for 18 months is hardly enough to base any meaningful conclusion upon. We have these where I work and I know that, for myself, it has made a tremendous difference in my physical activity level. Plus, I now get a flu shot every year, which did not happen prior to my working here beginning nearly 10 years ago.
This might interest you - seems better than the previous article.

Yeah, if it was an ebola outbreak in NYC instead of a measles outbreak, they'd get their vaccinations right quick.

But first they can hold ebola parties like they do with measles!

Heh - I use incognito all the time for medium.com articles. Although sometimes that doesn't work (it might be tracking my IP once in a while?), so I end up using a VPN + incognito. Strange.

Whew, good thing I read that dog/cat Washington Post article hours before it went paywalled. Ugh, I hate it when they do that.

Maybe this will work for those that missed it:

Eeew. I like Scalzi as a guy, but his writing is the sci-fi equivalent of twinkies. Empty calories, light and fluffy.

I totally agree here - I've read several of Scalzi's stuff and he is just average fluff. (I wonder if John Gwynne could hack it?)

That name - it sounds a bit too close to "Stasi" to me. Meanwhile, Google is probably still working on that project for China...
