I got the same feeling recently in his other thread when he basically compared the "communist Jews" to the Nazis, which would have been the perfect chance to invoke Godwyn's law. I'm not a fan of cens

Just my 2 cents... Faith. Faith is belief in the unseen or unproven. Knowledge on the other hand comes from proof or eveidence. I don't know how well the following analogy will go in places were do

I am REALLY tempted to abuse my temporary moderator privileges and kill this thread. Of course then I'd probably be accused of being a member of Mossad or a prostitute or an animal or a thief or a ca

Assassinated by a georgious half naked woman? Sounds almost like the ideal way to go from this physical world! Definitly much better than dieing from cancer.

Wasn't this the exact premise of a Monty Python sketch? Oh my god, alfa is really John Cleese!

The SRI is the behind all the master conspiracies in the world. Its evil plot is to give you some money at the end of each year depending on how much you worked. :)

Naturally, alfa is a big threat to them, so they have to try and kill him.

I'm right about the 98%: you'll not find a wise elected president or prime minister in Occident or in the world.

And if the leader is not wise…

It's the opposite really :rolleyes:

Every country gets the government it deserves. It's not the government that makes the people bad. :shifty:

You as a person quite likely nothing. The "people" as a whole however?!

Democracy in theory is sort of an ideal but in praxis it's still one of the better solutions. If for nothing else than that the "people" can not say that they have absolutely no influence in who rules them :)

Once agian paraphrasing Soctrates from "Plato's Republic" "THe only person qualified to lead is a person that is smart enough to know they don't want to lead."

With the system is the US, as it stands, a person has to REALLY want to be elected to get elected.

I think I'd prefer a monarchy. At least then there's a possibility that the government would want to maintain a sustainable economy; he's not likely to loot it to the point that there's nothing left to pass to his oldest son. The incentive in a Democracy is to get as much loot as you can before loosing office. :thumbdown:

From the notebooks of Lazarus Long:

Democracy is based upon the assumption that a million men are wiser than one man. How's that again? I missed something.

Autocracy is based upon the assumption that one man is wiser than a million men. Let's play that over again, too. Who decides?

We're supposed to be http://www.amazon.com/Republic-Not-Empire-Patrick-Buchanan/dp/089526272X' rel='nofollow' target="_blank">a republic, not an empire.

My kids are taught that in school; they go to school in the room over our garage. On the curriculum this year: Lego Mindstorm robot programming. :thumbup:

Can you please explain why you feel that LabVIEW programmers should attend a Near Death Conference? (You know you are in a LabVIEW forum, right?)

I agree that I sometimes feel more dead than alive, but I cannot blame LabVIEW for this. More likely it is due to late nights and early mornings.

/J

PS. Do you count being hunted by half-naked women as a Near Death experience? If so, will there be any special sessions regarding this, perhaps with some demonstrations?

Remember, we are in the lounge where the rules are:

"Enter the lounge and discuss anything and everything. Nothing is off-topic and all discussions are encouraged.

Please post LabVIEW related discussions in the other forums. "

Yepp, and since this was an important conference, I'd like to know if it is dangerous for me to use LabVIEW :shifty:

People can have more than one NDE; you have to learn what to look for during a NDE, to control the NDE.

Can it be done using NI technology? I'm thinking of some PXI system... :blink:
