What the actual fuck did I just click on?  :argh!:

I've decided that Russel Brand is the only human being I would ever consider voting for Prime Minister

two-dimensional metallic dielectric photonic crystal

Here was me thinking materials science was all about the nanotubes and the graphene but fuck me there's so much more to it than that!  :eek:

It's also about making transparent aluminum and then immediately making it obsolete.

Materials science is a very broad field, and it's ALL sexy.

Hell yeah! I remember you talking about transparent aluminium and sapphire crystals the size of your head but I never connected the two until now. It was all filed in my head under the label under the label "nanotech" but then I came across a wikipedia article on materials science and mind = blown.  :eek:

Desktop might not be dead but it is pissing blood and prone to bouts of memory loss and uncontrollable shaking. M$ core business is server and has been for decades. I'm pretty sure most of the last decade or so OS releases have been trolling people who insist on still buying desktops

Dunno how accurate the info I had was but there was a figure in a doc I watched that about 80% of legal work was "discovery" which is not talking your ass off in court, winning over the jury but poring over documents, accounts, email and shit like that trying to build a case.

This process (80% of the stuff lawyers do) is about to get automated by deep learning systems which can do the job infinitely faster and an order of magnitude more accurately.

100% of lawyers with 20% stuff left to do should be interesting. I'm not thinking techno unemployment (That's call-center staff and burger chefs) more a case of less backlog. What's going to happen to the legal system once the backlog is reduced by 80%?

The lawyers will lobby for even more laws.  Many of them will instead go into politics.

America:  Shoot a programmer today.

I'm thinking more along the lines of the School to Prison Pipeline you guys have going on over there. You could be approaching "peak-prison" where you can't build them fast enough. What happens then? Escape from New York?

:cn:

Like I said, I'm not sure if that 80% thing is accurate. The e-discovery thing is tried and tested database software that's now getting hooked into cognitive systems Like IBM Watson

If you haven't heard of Cognitive yet then here's my tip - It's going to make the information revolution of the last four or five decades look like nothing significant really happened during that period.

That's not pain, IT'S WEAKNESS LEAVING YOUR BODY  :lulz:

Talk about coincidence, I came across the same guy yesterday, surfing for truther shit to freak out my more gullible friends with and from the couple of clips I watched, plus this one I reckon all his stuff prolly runs a similar course of descent into derangement  :lulz:

Dude - a lot of your stuff just goes right over my head but every now and again I feel like our wavelengths sort of intersect and I skirt along the edges of getting where your coming from. When squirmy told him to go fuck himself I started laughing my ass off and it lasted right to the end.

This is not a criticism, btw, the not quite on your wavelength thing. Just in case you were wondering. I actually really like that about you.  :lulz:

Emoto's work has solid methodology. I believe thoughts are well documented as having significant effect at the quantum level.

I need to be making money from these people!

I'm probably a mile off but for some reason I got this impression of Portland that it's a town invented by hippies who got lost on the way back from woodstock on account of too much acid and the whole place is constructed of tofu with falafel stucco and stinks of 100 year old patchouli residue.

Like I said - I expect I'm a mile off here but maybe it goes some way toward explaining my complete lack of surprise over the frisbee shop thing  :eek:

Scots are way too busy shitting over Scotland to even consider taking you up on your generous offer

You know what really drives me insane. It's the reason I sometimes entertain notions that maybe there really is a hell and I'm in it. This shit is glaringly obvious to me. Now I'm no einstein but when something is that obvious, it doesn't take a retard to figure it out. So how come billions of people (many of whom are presumably capable of reading and writing and feeding themselves and shit, are utterly blind to such an obvious fact. And then it occurs to me they're not really people. They're some kind of automatons and the world would be better if they were all dead.

So I'm not actually certifiably insane (anymore) and I know to start murdering people in cold blood because they seem like automata is some really screwy and twisted thinking so acting on it is totally out the question. Not just morally but rationally. I'm fine with this but this niggling feeling persists. So every now and again I turn on the teevee and I watch them killing themselves and each other en masse, for the most hilariously dumb reasons that you couldn't even make up and it makes me feel a bit better.

This is my guilty secret.  :oops:
