Re: 1524: "Dimensions"

May I ask you if you've considered all the possibilities that "down" might offer you? What is "down" in terms of dimensions? This brings up an interesting question though. If everything was moving inexorably forward through another dimension and allowed to move freely through ti...

I too looked straight for it. Released in 1982 and set in 2019, 37 years in the future. Just barely in the "still possible" realm, but a lot will need to change in the next 4 years. It would have been a tight fit to have it on there along with 2010.

The answer is "Who knows."

The ex-president of the People's Republic knows? Is he on record as saying so? I think that needs a citation. Or do you mean the guy on first base?

Re: 1130: "Poll Watching"

It is sad, that even supposedly intelligent and educated people, like Randall, or Jon Steward, completely fall for that utterly meaningless distraction. As if it was in any way relevant to their lives. Like CD jumping, they just never ever seem to get it. PROTIP: THE DEMS WILL ENACT THE REP CHANGES...

Re: 0992: "Mnemonics"

I agree it should be avoided, but BODMAS gives us a definite order or precendence for it. Except that it doesn't. This is demonstrated by replacing division with multiplication and vice versa. 10 / 5 * 2 --> 10 * .2 / .5 If division took precedence over multiplication, the result would be 1 instead...

Re: 0990: “Plastic Bags”

This is a big reason why I always go with the self checkout lanes. Another being that they often don't apply discounts when they should, so I have to keep an eye on it.
