An object lesson in how science is supposed to work...
How's that Linux "programming" coming along, skippy? Do you have any customers yet?
Why not program for WINDOWS and make some money.
Need any Windows programming software?:
<You're just wasting gas, SKIPPY.>
Bothering about you is a waste of time, <SKIPPY>.
There is some marginal value in keeping you talking, because everything you say is an embarrassment to Microsoft.
>hat's enough time wasted on you.<
Does that mean you're putting me on ignore again for the upteened time?
And if you are "programming" Linux stuff you're just proving you're wasting your time because most "programmers" write utilities for WINDOWS for income and are rewarded with money for their efforts.
If you're posting "Programming for Linux" you are on the wrong BB and your post has nothing to do with this BB so why don't you mosey over to the RHT thread with the rest of the low lifes.
It is all nice and keeps people employed with govt money and all, as well as inflating many egos, all very good, but what is it for? In these times we need to study ways to deal with the population explosion and human problems.
The neutrinos will be around to study in better times, if there are going to be better times. With 7 billion people, adding a billion appx every 10-12 yrs, lets figure out where everybody will get food in 20 years.
I've heard arguments like this all my life.
If we wait until there are no other questions to answer or problems to solve, we will never answer questions like this, for there are always other matters.
The money amounts may sound large, but they are negligible compared to the amounts already being spent on other government programs.
Considerable amounts have already been spent to create the capability to study such matters. If the funding were cut back, the capability would dissipate, and the money already spent would have gone for naught. (Try looking up the current state of the "superconducting supercollider", as I believe it was called, on which billions had been spent by the US government when funding was cancelled. The billions already spent were thrown away, but if the work had continued, we would now have the equivalent of CERN's LHC in the US.)
In the long run, nothing is more important than learning what kind of universe we live in.
