Re: Bye-Tanium...

By the time Itanium reached market, its design justifications had all been refuted by practice: static instruction scheduling in the compiler was already losing to dynamic scheduling in the CPU.

Well, at any rate, Obama reversed his funding cuts (that you say he's not responsible for) and increased funding for mental health care in 2014.

Re: Christianity in action

Theophagy, I think.

Of course, if Jesus was a real person and did exist, then we'd all probably be eating and drinking a few atoms of his mortal remains with every bite or sip.

Re: Religion(s) of peace

Re: Question about matter/antimatter asymmetry

It can't be the cosmic microwave background; that was created at a much later time.

Most of the energy of the universe, however, is tied up in dark energy and dark matter. I don't know if these could hold that either though -- it's not clear [more]

Born in 51 and have had Measles, Mumps, and Chicken Pox, but not Rubella that I know of. Since I couldn't find anything that told me I didn't need MMR because I had it as a kid, I just went ahead and got it. Not sure what Rubella is. [more]
