Re: The Larger Picture
Only for a very short time. No need for humans to do simple stuff like programming. Let Watson do it.

a bite off the Apple
Fortunately the Budgie desktop can be made to look like an Apple desktop but you can still actually do stuff.

I've been known to build computers for some kids that can't afford them and they seem to like the Apple look so often I install the Ubuntu Budgie desktop. It has tools that will even handle most of the Appleized formats but that are also real world compatible.

Re: Planetary Defense
If you observe examples of demolition you would know that it always succeeds and that it successfully breaks everything up into uniform size pieces.

The secret is to use high quality CGI.

Our challenge as critics and supporters is to find consensus.

It is impossible to find consensus when a whole population has been taught how to not think and to avoid reality or honesty and instead to worship and glorify fantasy and incomprehension.

Re: Planetary Defense
Ideologies are for those too lazy to even try to learn; but it does keep the Apologists, Snake Oil Salesmen and Carny Barkers phat and rich.

We also need to watch out for false prophets who claim that God and Jesus are human-created characters in a book and that one can be a good Christian simply by being an empathetic humanist.

Jesus was an empathetic humanist. It was Luke and Mark and Matthew and John that were the Primal Apologists marketing what they created. Since them it has all been nothing but carny barkers.

You and most of modern Christianity are simply pathetic GOATS.

Re: JWST Launch Success
IMHO the most dangerous part was negotiating the political and societal demands needed just to get the sucker to the launch pad.

releasing captured carbon-dioxide
Almost every morning I enjoy releasing captured carbon-dioxide back into the atmosphere.

Blame me if you must but I will still fix my coffee in the morning.
