CO2 is a “trace gas” in air, insignificant by definition. It absorbs 1/7th as much IR, heat energy, from sunlight as water vapor which has 188
times as many molecules capturing 1200 times as much heat making 99.9% of all "global warming." CO2 does only 0.1% of it. For this we should destroy our economy?

Carbon combustion generates 80% of our energy. Control and taxing of carbon would give the elected ruling class more power and money than
anything since the Magna Carta of 1215 AD.

Computer Dictionary
386: No, 486: Oops, Pentium: The only chip to consider if you're thinking of buying a PC. Until Intel ramps up the 686.
640K: The salary the average Wall Street PC analyst pulls in each year.
Algorithm: A catchy 1930 song by George and Ira Gershwin.
Availability: Date when a dozen copies of the beta version will be hurriedly shrink-wrapped for the benefit of the press and the investment community.
Backup: The chore you were really, honestly, going to do the very next thing before you switched drive letters and accidentally copied older, out-of-date versions of you files over all your newer ones at 3 a.m.
Buffer: The only other job - involving a chamois at the car wash - for which most computer store salespeople are qualified.
Bundled software: Free applications like home dentistry packages and Esperanto spelling dictionaries that are thrown in with cheap clones so you think you're getting real value for your money.
CD-ROM: A $30 dollar mechanism in a $300 cabinet that accesses vast quantities of valuable information too slowly to use.
Copy protection: A sly technique employed by hardware vendors to combat software piracy by continually changing the size and compatibility of disk drives (from 160K to 320K to 360K to 1.2MB to 720K to 1.44MB to 2.88MB, etc.).
CP/M: An antiquated operation system from the early days of computing, based on inscrutable prompts like A>, terse commands, and absurdly backward conventions, such as 11-character limits on filenames. Contrasted with today's modern versions of DOS.
Database, flat-file: A program selling for under $500 that most people use to keep lists of names and addresses, etc.
Database, relational/programmable: A program selling for over $500 that most people use to keep lists of names and addresses, etc.
Debugging: The process of uncovering glitches by packaging prerelease software as finished products, then waiting for irate customers to report problems.
Downward compatibility: You really didn't have to spend the money for the upgraded version, since all you use anyway is the old set of features.
End User: One born every minute.
Entry level: Only slightly above most users' heads.
Expanded memory: RAM that is, uh, well, um, different from extended memory.
Expansion slot: The computer didn't come with everything you needed.
Extended memory: RAM that is, uh, well, um, different from expanded memory.
FAX: Originally a last resort for procrastinators who missed the final Federal Express pickup; these days, an expensive way to order lunch from the pizza place around the corner.
Firmware: Software with permanent bugs hardwired into it.
Icon: One picture is worth a thousand lawsuits. Or, as Shakespeare might have put it, "He who steals my trash better have a large purse.
Installation routine: A process employed by many applications to overwrite and thereby trash the user's existing and painstakingly created AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files
Interface, character-based: A way of presenting information to the user that's every bit as good as a user interface except in the areas of readability, ease of use, intuitiveness, and productivity.
Interface, graphic user (GUI): An increasingly popular way of presenting information to the user, originally designed by Xerox PARC and now being adopted by dozens of competitors; otherwise known as the Trial Attorney Full Employment Act.
Laptop: A dinky keyboard wedded to a lousy LCD screen, all with bad battery life.
Live links: A clever system that lets you unknowingly corrupt data in lots of separate files at the same time.
Low-bandwidth: The process of talking to a corporate press relations official.(Question: How many IBM PR types does it take to change a light bulb? Answer: We'll have to get back to you on that.)
Nanosecond: The time it takes after your warranty expires for your hard disk to start making a sound like a monkey wrench in a blender.

Open system: Made up of parts from different manufacturers so that, when you crash, each vendor can blame the others.

Optional: It should have come free, but someone in the marketing department ran 1-2-3 and figured they'd double their profits this way.

Parity: A ninth memory bit that one time in nine will crash an otherwise perfectly functioning system when it detects an error in itself.

Partition: A wall you have to build around a noisy dot matrix printer that makes only slightly less noise than a tree chipper.

Point-and-shoot: You mean you'd rather click on a menu choice than have to type things like DEVICE=DOSUTSDRIVER.SYS /D:0 /T:80 /S:15 /H:2 /F:1 ?

The government shutdown, largely orchestrated by Tea Party leader Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, is proceeding with House Republicans following Sen. Cruz’s playbook to the letter, offering up all kinds of cockamamie piecemeal funding bills instead of just simply agreeing to fund the government -- like the American people overwhelmingly want them to do.

flounder
intransitive verb
: to move in an awkward way with a lot of difficulty and effort
: to be unsure about what to do or say
: to have a lot of problems and difficulties
Just so you understand the situation flounder.
The American people by an overwhelming majority do NOT like or want the Affordable Care Act.
All president Obama has to do is suspend the funding for one year and agree to negotiate the bill and we would not have a government shutdown, now would we!

BS, the dems are loving this, it's what they want to cry next elections. But really who cares? So what you can't visit Yosemite, the shutdown makes no difference in most people's lives. I stopped following it, it's boring.

It's not clear whether Congress will do the same this time around.

That a three-week closing ended up costing the US tax payers $1.25 billion in today's dollars.
