It's basically nice but I'm still not sure I actually need a tablet. When I need portability I have a smartphone and when I need a proper keyboard and screen I have a laptop. If I need something cheap to carry around when I don't feel like messing up my proper laptop, I'd probably buy a netbook. SSH on a virtual keyboard is a nightmare.

Intel HD 4000 ???
Why, oh why did they put integrated graphics in such a machine, instead of the best nvidia chip? OK, it's easier to cool one than two but this is ridiculous in this price range.

This is quite interesting as it shows the absurdity of today's politics - that Mitt Romney character has absolutely no clue on what he would do if elected, but somehow seems to convince 50% of Americans with his posturing. That nobody judges arguments on factual accuracy is apalling.

This is an excellent example of how media create lies by misreporting. What the article portrays (and stupid people read from it) is that Italian courts made a witch hunt, sentencing scientists for failing to predict an earthquake. However, the reality is that those very scientists did much more than fail to predict an earthquake. You see, one of them, working in a nearby institute, actually did predict it, weeks before, by measurements of gas release from the ground. What they did was call him an imbecile, take him to the court and attempt to have him convicted for spreading false rumors. They repeatedly told the people there was no danger and they should go home, and people did. They went home where they died when the correctly predicted earthquake did in fact strike. Now those scientists got what they had comming.

There is an article from the time of the actual quake:
http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1889644,00.html
Quote:

"Giampaolo Giuliani, a seismologist at the nearby Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Abruzzo, predicted, following months of small tremors in the area, that a much bigger jolt was on its way. The researcher had said that a "disastrous" earthquake would strike on March 29, but when it didn't, Guido Bertolaso, head of Italy's Civil Protection Agency, officially denounced Giuliani in court last week for "false alarm." "These imbeciles enjoy spreading false news," Bertolaso was quoted as saying. "Everyone knows that you can't predict earthquakes."

Using a method that measures gasses emitted by small tremors, Giuliani, it turns out, was partially right. A much smaller seismic shift struck on the day he said it would, with the truly disastrous one arriving just one week later. "Someone owes me an apology," Giuliani, who is also a resident of L'Aquila, told reporters on Monday. "The situation here is dramatic. I am devastated but also angry.""

So, when the scientists and their blind followers say that earthquakes cannot be predicted, that is only partially true. Sometimes you can tell with great certainty that an area is seismically active. When you also have a potentially precursory swarm and gas measurements, the probability of an earthquake becomes high enough to warrant potentially erring on the side of caution and evacuating people, just like in case of a potential tsunami.

Governments in general are very good at distributing the money other people have earned, and thus creating huge amounts of jobs in state administration. Those jobs are a double-edged sword - at first they seem useful and they seem to solve more problems than they create, but the more state does, the greater burden it is on the taxpayers, and at a certain tipping point, which we have already crossed everywhere, the state sponsored jobs are a huge dead weight paid for by foreign debt and huge taxes, all the while standing in the way of actually doing business and creating wealth.

It's like asking "now that Tesla died, who will be the next Tesla?". Those are not really the people you can create on demand by raising some generic non-individual from the ranks.

The animal rights activists should just STFU. Stray animals and uncontrolled animals that wander into the streets should be routinely killed because they are not your cute cuddly pet animals, they are wild beasts that form packs and threaten humans.

Honestly, those dogs are an unnatural phenomenon, as much as humans and their rat infested cities. Reproduction of wolves in nature would be limited by habitat and food sources, but here, they are not a part of an ecosystem, existing as a result of a human whim gone out of control. That humans occasionally dispose of them is actually more responsible than just letting them be.

The world needs a top level predator that will hunt and eat people, a predator they are completely defenseless against. That would be the only thing that would teach them morality. They need gods that hunt them for food. You see, human species is over 200000 years old, and for the greatest majority of that time, there were less than a milion of humans on the entire planet. In fact, during the Pleistocene, which makes the 90% of those 200000 years, the actual number was probably under 50000. The world could cope with such a number of humans just fine. But then they invented better weapons and could hunt better. They ate more, and not being hungry, they were happy and reproduced more. Then they needed more food for their young, wanting everybody to be happy, so they killed more animals and bred more humans. So, instead of having abundant variety of wildlife we now have mostly humans, their livestock, pleasure animals and parasites, and humans are not done reproducing. The most interesting thing is, humans tend to think that they will be "happy" when they multiply, expand their influence and destroy all that opposes them, while the curious thing is, they literally ate the planet trying to become happy and they are still as spiritually empty as when they were huddled by the fire in the cave, afraid of the dark.
