Internet

Is it just me or does anybody else find it amusing that the U.S. government is telling the Egyptian government to reactivate the internet and social networking sites while there are riots in the streets and at the same time they are telling us they need the power to shut down the internet here in case of an emergency?  I wonder what emergency they have in mind where they would need to do that….

    In case they need to have absolute information control? The power to shut down the Internet is like burning books. Where did you read that by the way?

    There’s a link in there to an article in the Huffington Post (admittedly not the most credible source but I like to mix it up with the external links). You can do a google search on it and find out all about it. I think there was another bill too because I saw a guy on tv the other day talking about this issue and he said it was all just right-wing fear mongering and that bill wasn’t going anywhere but he was talking about a different bill. He didn’t say anything about this one…

    For ax^2+bx+c = 0:x = [-b+/- sqrt(b^2-4ac)]/(2a)1) a = 1, b = -7, c = -42) a = 1, b = -5, c = -3etc.Most of the time there are two answers, since this is a paaabrla. There are often two points where it crosses the 0 line. Sometimes, it just touches the 0 line and so there’s only 1 answer. In that case, (b^2-4ac) = 0. Other times, the paaabrla approaches 0, but turns around before it gets there, so there is no answer. In that case (b^2-4ac) will be negative, so there is no square root.
