Computer Competency Test For Non-IT Hires?
As an IT leader/decision maker in a corporate environment, I would consider this a personal failing and an IT department failing. We (IT) are the experts. We have the skills and knowledge. If someone does not have the skills or knowledge to use a corporate tool (PC, server, network, etc...) it is OUR responsibility to provide training.
I have a "technology orientation class" periodically. 60 minutes of "do this, don't do that". It eliminates the "I didn't know" and "how do I..." problems.
It is arrogant, ill-informed and misguided to demand that an end user know how to make your job easier.

...then it was over.
Thanks for wasting 3:43 of my life. The only justice is that the idiot who created this wasted a lot more and is that much closer to death.

Space is curved. Therefore your belief that the Earth is a sphere may be the result of your perception of a flat surface in curved space-time. Therefore (1.5) fails.
New "Hairy" Material Is Almost Perfectly Hydrophobic
Also, since when did evolution stop? Who knows if in another 100 million years, the whales may evolve microscopic hairs.
Whales seem more likely to evolve a digestive system that drawn nutrition from waste plastic in water than microscopic hairs that make them more efficient swimmers. Evolution has to do with increased survival. Swimming slightly more efficiently would have less of an impact than the capacity to eat the slurry of waste we are dumping in the oceans.
People often confuse evolution with improvement. Evolution is adaption. Pure and simple.

Billionaire Adds Laser Shield To Yacht
And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads! Now evidently my cycloptic colleague informs me that that cannot be done. Ah, would you remind me what I pay you people for, honestly? Throw me a bone here!
AIDS Vaccine Is Partially Successful
I have reviewed the other comments and agree that 30% is not much help and that it may encourage risky behavior from those who believe it to be a magic bullet.
Given all of that, I am still hopeful. We had a disease that until now we had made no significant inroads on controlling. Now we have something. We have a beta version or an alpha. Maybe some smart guy will come up with a beta 2 that covers 40%. Then 50%. Maybe in my kids lifetime this horrible disease will be gone... ...and I can start screwing total strangers with impunity again!
