Why is Google Android such an ass? Why does it refuse to let me type words it thinks inappropriate? Why doesn't it know how to spell famous people's names? Why can't it look up the meaning of a word while I'm typing? Why can't it contextually associate what I write with my calender, my tasks, my associates, my alarms, my meetings and my events, my email text and phone calls, with my content, with my locations? What is Google thinking when it brags all day about advanced artificial intelligence, while it can't (won't) make the simplest and most obvious happen on their current devices and services? Obnoxious.

Weirdest thing NASA has ever done? And its a doozy!

I'm trying to imagine a worse place to store something that you want to last than on that Rube Goldberg ISS mess skimming our atmosphere. store the human backup plan on a machine with a forty year life expectancy? There is no thing that could ruin life on earth, that would spare that claptrap. The ISS is completely dependent on earth humans and on a daily basis. We go, it goes.

Something about this story smells of bullshit… what say you +Ethan Siegel ?
This image of the Sun was taken by NASA Solar Dynamics Observations mission on 15 July 2015, at a wavelength of 304 Angstroms. Image credit: NASA Solar Dynamics Observations. The arrival of intense cold similar to the one that raged during the “Little Ice Age”, which froze the world during the ...

The Onion might also close down if they knew parents are this clueless or desperate. Don't tell the Onion.

Sickening. At least I haven't heard Lance trying to get attention at the tour this year. What an asshole. I'd not be surprised if this doping isn't still an issue. Some of this year's riders really do seem super human and super human more then their statistical share of the time. Makes me wonder about my own motives and what really drives my interest in this sort of outsized spectacle.

Note: Lance Armstrong's DNA was read out and stored as a digital description on some sort of computer memory and is kept at on board the International Space Station along with the description of the DNA of ten or so other humans. The list is down right freaky. Stephen Hawking, a playboy centerfold, a novel writer, etc.

What is this BS? Rediculous article on "Immortality" in Nautilus (May June 2016), says there is DNA from Stephen Hawking and Lance Armstrong stored on the international space station.

From the I SHIT YOU NOT grab bag…
NPR's Ketzel Levine visits the Bonfante Gardens Theme Park in Gilroy, California. Owner Michael Bonfante opened the 75-acre parcel as a non-profit, educational project to teach children about plants. It has rides in the shapes of vegetables and 10-thousand tree specimens.

I completely disagree with most of these listed reasons, but not that, Google+ is failing, has failed.
Google needs to rethink its mission statement and delight its customers

Indices don't really organize information. But that's not the point I'd make. The point I'd make is that Google's business is selling ads. The info index and search matching just attracts the hosts upon which their parasitic model feasts.

What matters is what matters, knowing what matters matters the most.
Introduction
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
I block all Google+'ers who don't share a full profile (including a comprehensive "Introduction" section), a full legal name, a recent and accurate photo, a means of direct communication, or who use this forum for purposes other than honest and serious discussions of real issues. I also block people who rarely or never post their own original thoughts in their own words.

PASSIONS AND MOTIVATIONS
Darwin did a fair job defining the HOW of evolution – within the domain of biology. But the scope of evolution is far larger than the bounds of biology.

I seek a domain independent understanding of evolution. I seek the WHY of evolution. Why does complexity increase in pockets? Complexity is energy and configuration expensive. In a universe that can only get more and more simple, maximal complexity is the fastest path towards the deepest eventuality. Evolution is the process by which the universe iteratively computes the shortest path from all here and now's to the asymptote that is heat death.

The ultimate fate of the universe is set and unavoidable. The only variable is the rate at which it gets there. Configurations that maximize this rate dominate the energy flow within their environment and thus have the greatest influence over the shape of change. You can only maximize energy flow to the extent with which you understand it.  Knowledge and the processing of knowledge is what evolution in any universe will produce.

You can get better and better at knowing how the universe works and why – or you can become food for systems that do. There is no other option.

THE EMPIRICAL CREED
ALL of my theory work is Standard Model Compliant. If a measurement has been taken, I assume that the result MUST be considered valid. Furthermore, ALL theory must agree with ALL measurement and with ALL measurement confirmed theory – period. No exceptions. This is the solemn oath we take before we engage in the scientific process.
