The Future Is Filled With Bullshit Panic Based On Software

Computer models for Sandy:

They don’t mention the yellow one, where it keeps going out to the Atlantic!

Nor do they mention the other models where it just keeps going to the ocean:

Notice again that yellow one.

Why?

Greece Is Being Murdered For Money

Amid Cutbacks, Greek Doctors Offer Message to Poor: You Are Not Alone

As the head of Greece’s largest oncology department, Dr. Kostas Syrigos thought he had seen everything. But nothing prepared him for Elena, an unemployed woman whose breast cancer had been diagnosed a year before she came to him.

By that time, her cancer had grown to the size of an orange and broken through the skin, leaving a wound that she was draining with paper napkins. “When we saw her we were speechless,” said Dr. Syrigos, the chief of oncology at Sotiria General Hospital in central Athens. “Everyone was crying. Things like that are described in textbooks, but you never see them because until now, anybody who got sick in this country could always get help.”

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

The West began in Greece. Will the West begin its end there too?

Once Again I Yell About Tablets And Cameras

Nice iPad mini Apple, but I’m keeping my Nexus 7

He ruined it when he stupidly and smugly said:

When it comes to camera, the iPad does have a 5MegaPixel (MP) back-facing camera and a 1.2MP front-facing camera, while the Nexus 7 only has a single front-facing 1.2MP camera. To each their own, but if I’m going to take a photograph I’m going to use a real camera or my smartphone, not a tablet.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

Earlier this week I attended the Asus Windows 8 introduction. I had with me a Nikon CoolPix that takes 8MPx photos.

You know who was getting better pictures than me?
