"Exploding" Termite Species Discovered

bronney Re:We can learn from the termites how to fix Socie (158 comments)

I can tell by observing you and me of course, that we're not rich. All my rich friends doesn't concern themselves with luxuries because as you said, there's only so much you can snort. The short-term reasons as you listed out are also valid. Namely doing what you love and money just comes in by accident, and earning it as a number game because all their friends have the Mercedes and the only way to "win" is to have bigger numbers.

Most what I've seen though, is the idea of a rich lineage. This is for both the second gen (born rich) and first gen (made rich) dudes I know. They aren't just concerned with themselves, but with godlike generations after them. It doesn't mean they'll spoil their kids with crazy luxuries. It means that their kids will have a wider range of choices in what to do with their life versus us. And their grand-kids and so on. When your objective is that, you wouldn't mind "more" money really.

Being Honest In Exit Interviews Is Pointless

bronney Break up interview. (550 comments)

Not unlike your ex calling you to discuss the "reason" for the break up yeah? Nothing good comes out of whatever reason there were, ever. Why? Because every single relationship is complex and different, much like jobs. The lessons you learned in the last one can mean diddly in the next, well, some are valuable and might help with the next.. ..Until you break up again. Now explain that.

I only say good things when I go as that's the least you can do.

Why Mark Zuckerberg Is a Bad Role Model For Aspiring Tech Execs

bronney vast majority good? (326 comments)

the vast majority of CEOs running successful U.S. high-tech firms have college degrees, and more than half have at least one graduate degree.

And by doing exactly what every one else is doing, you become the "vast majority". Golf clap.

Ask Slashdot: How To Introduce Someone To Star Trek?

bronney Re:Schisms (634 comments)

I am glad that the timing of TNG coincided with grade 12 when I was inspired by both my English teacher and Shakespearean plays. Coming home watching star trek with mom (TOS fan) is one of the great memories I have.

Two months ago, I started watching TNG again, and last week finished it once again and I completely agree with your episodes choice. If it wasn't for grade 12 though, ST wouldn't be as good.

John Carmack Is Building a Virtual Reality Headset

bronney Re:Honest question: 2 screens needed? (118 comments)

Another reason is that when things are this close to your eyes, you can't focus correctly and your eyes will cross and go wonky. Try holding an apple to your nose, you no longer see is correctly. Now try holding a fly to your nose, you still can't see it correctly. Yes?

That's exactly why I wear headphone sometimes at work, it's because of the background noise from PEOPLE. They distract the shit outta me.

Science Reveals Why Airplane Food Tastes So Bad

bronney Re:Yeah... except at 35,000ft it's pressurized to (388 comments)

Yup last time I tried it was awesome actually. Much better than airplane food. The carrot cake was nice, and heated soup is love. Damn why don't they serve soup on the plane but cup noodles are fine? I wish they serve soup in a coffee cup or something.
