How Many People Does It Take To Colonize Another Star System?

Wireless Joe My science book says 8 people (392 comments)

You only need eight people, and one ship that's only 300 by 50 by 30 cubits is enough to carry all the other animals and supplies required to completely start from scratch. Study it out.

Hollywood's Love of Analytics Couldn't Prevent Six Massive Blockbuster Flops

Wireless Joe Re:Problem is, that hollywood is ran by MBAs (1029 comments)

" The town will never be the same. After the Tangiers, the big corporations took it all over. Today it looks like Disneyland. And while the kids play cardboard pirates, Mommy and Daddy drop the house payments and Junior's college money on the poker slots. In the old days, dealers knew your name, what you drank, what you played. Today, it's like checkin' into an airport. And if you order room service, you're lucky if you get it by Thursday.

Today, it's all gone. You get a whale show up with four million in a suitcase, and some twenty-five-year-old hotel school kid is gonna want his Social Security Number. After the Teamsters got knocked out of the box, the corporations tore down practically every one of the old casinos. And where did the money come from to rebuild the pyramids? Junk bonds. "

Online Music Storage Firm MP3tunes Files For Bankruptcy

Wireless Joe Re:Not a lot of assets (41 comments)

FTA: MP3tunes had filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 code, which envisages liquidation of a company's operation. In the court filing, the company had listed out assets of about $7,800 and liabilities of $2.1 million. Good luck with that...

They should just sell some of the trillions of dollars worth of song files they're holding on to. According to statutory damages, each song is worth about $150K; they could erase their entire debt by selling just 14 tracks.

I prefer my input devices to be as _______ as possible.

Wireless Joe A little of column A, and a little of column B (279 comments)

I'll wait a generation or two, and pick up the most comfortable, least expensive item I can get my hands on. Of course, part of a device being comfortable is having it be precise and customizable so I don't have to focus too hard on using it, otherwise that's where the "withstands violent impact" option comes in.
