If you think his weakness is in his sentence structure then obviously you're not even half aware of what he's doing when he speaks to convince.

The link you posted, the transcript in that, has a pretty good cut-off and re-phrasing/restart of sentences such that people stay focused, interested, and convinced.

Comment As someone with a Kindle in the land of the risi.. (Score 1) 82

Seriously, as long as I got access to WiFi the storage is not a real issue.

What degrades my experience is rather the slow page turn and/or lack of caching of pages in both directions. In addition a lot of times you want to zoom in, to see the page of the manga as intended... sometimes it's a full two-page thing, sometimes it's traditional one-page right-to-left-to-down, and sometimes it's a 4-koma top-right-to-bottom-right, etc.

Basically the real issue is that the Kindle doesn't let you choose a way of viewing a certain book/manga.

Then you don't really understand what makes blockchains useful as compared to any other kind of system.

For the cases you pointed out, e.g. when changes need to be made to things already in the blockchain, those should be done as new blocks that revert or modify previous blocks. That preserves both the history and trust of the block chain.

Wait, you use the headphone jack for desktop speakers? That better be for the optical out else you deserve no respect...

USB audio is already common enough that anyone using their MBP at home would be able to plug in with no problems. USB audio is in fact superior to both analog and optical.

It's not the teeth you idiot, it's our large energy-sucking brain and our digestive system.

Our brain was able to grow because we started to cook food, which allows more nutrients to be taken up from the same amount of food. As we optimized out digestive systems as compared to other primates we lost the ability to produce a lot of important stuff that cooked meat now provides us with.
