Bill Gates and God

I found this joke on the internet (Duh)
clipped from mail.google.com

Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Bill Gates all died in a plane crash and went to meet their maker. The supreme deity turned to Al and asked, tell what is important about yourself.

Al responded that he felt that the earth was the ultimate importance and that protecting the earth’s ecological system was most important.

God looked to Al and said, ” I like the way you think, come and sit at my left hand”. God then asked Bill Clinton what he revered most.

Bill Clinton responded that he felt people and their personal choices were most important.

God responded, ” I like the way you think, come and sit at my right hand”. God then turned to Bill Gates, who was staring at him indignantly.

God asked “What is your problem Bill Gates?”

Bill responded ” I think you are sitting in my chair”.

Using Moths to spy on Terrorists

At some point in the not too distant future, a moth will take flight in the
hills of northern Pakistan, and flap towards a suspected terrorist training
camp.

But this will be no ordinary moth.

Inside it will be a computer chip that was implanted when the creature was
still a pupa, in the cocoon, meaning that the moth’s entire nervous system
can be controlled remotely.

The moth will thus be capable of landing in the camp without arousing
suspicion, all the while beaming video and other information back to its
masters via what its developers refer to as a “reliable tissue-machine
interface.”

IBM creates world’s most powerful computer

The first supercomputer capable of crunching through a thousand trillion mathematical operations every second has been announced by IBM. This is roughly equivalent to the combined processing power of a 2.4-kilometre-high pile of laptop computers.

Blue Gene/P will be capable of a peak performance of 3000 trillion calculations, or floating point operations, per second (3 petaflops). But its sustained performance is expected to level out at around 1 petaflop.

Each processing chip inside the machines contains 4 unique processor cores. There are 32 of these processors in every circuit board, and 32 circuit boards in every rack. With a total of 216 racks, the full machine features 884,736 unique processor cores.

World’s worst criminals: The AMERICANS by population

June 28, 2007 at 9:22 pm | Posted in Lifescape | 4 Comments
“We have to get away from the idea that what happens in prisons stays in prisons. Prisons are public institutions and they must be held accountable.” Alexander Busansky, executive director of the CSAAP, told the BBC the US public was largely ignorant of the real state of America’s prisons.

The Commission on Safety and Abuse in America’s Prisons (CSAAP) issues its final report in about eight weeks time, but the testimony of violence, abuse and over-crowding it has already heard has shocked few familiar with the largest documented prison system in the world.
More than 2.1 million people are in jail in the US at any one time; that is about one in 140 Americans, or as many people as live in Namibia, or nearly five Luxembourgs – and it is a number that continues to rise.
America currently stands accused of acting as the world’s jailer in its War on Terror. It is under fire for allegedly running secret jails in other countries, far from public scrutiny.

How Your Mind Really Works

Here are 10 weaknesses of human intelligence:

Faulty hard drive
It’s a bad idea to put too much faith in your memories, since they’re likely riddled with errors.
Slow CPU

  • Infinite loops– Once a pattern of thought and behavior has become conditioned, it can be very difficult to reprogram. This causes bad habits,addictions, and Republicans.
  • Lack oferror correction
    One bad decision left uncorrected will soon seemore errors piled on top of it.
    Limited sensory input-

  • Poor networking capabilities – Transferring data between twohuman minds is slow, tedious, and error-prone, and theprotocolsarebeyond confusing. It’s a safe bet that Microsoft isinvolved.
  • High maintenance costs
    Legacy code
    Unreliable hardware
    Low RAM
    There’s so much you don’t understand because your mind lacks the capacity to storeall the subtleties needed for true comprehension. Consequently, you’re probably makinga total mess of things.

    Conventional wisdom holds that you only get what you pay for, but the real
    free geek knows that with the right knowledge (and maybe a charming smile) pretty
    much anything, even the good stuff, can be had for less or in the best case
    scenarios nothing
    at all
    . Despite this, there are a number of things out there that don’t
    seem to scream “free” majority of the time (MIT being one). Here’s
    a list of a few free things that might surprise you.

    Classes at MIT
    Language Lessons
    Business Education
    Computer Classes
    Museum Admission
    Concerts, Movies and Shows
    Pets
    Gym Membership
    Photo Prints
    411 Service
    Phone Calls
    Email Reminders
    Ice Cream
    Used Books
    Household Items
    Makeup
    Face Cream
    Good Samples
    Comic Books
    CPR Courses
    Legal Music
    Coffee

    While not everything you want can always be free, there are a lot of free things
    out there for the taking if you know when to go and where. So take advantage
    of this list, and start getting all the free stuff you deserve (you’ve worked
    hard for it).
