Did they also measure the same response for the death of a spouse/child/parent? No?
You guys fucking SUCK lately.
It's said that the most stressful situations a human being can suffer are the death of a loved one, divorce, moving house, a major illness and losing your job. We might add to that living in Syria and, if mobe outfit Ericsson is to be believed, enduring a "time-to-content delay" when attempting to eyeball a vid on your phone …
There's a point? and there was me sitting here thinking that you just happened to fall over and slip on the carpet accidentally typing utter bollocks into your computer then miraculously throwing your hand on the mouse and clicking submit.
Does this happen often? Have you tried facebook or twitter?
Disclaimer: In case anyone with an IQ less than 10 is reading this, it's sarcasm, the dirty filthy sarcasm you get after reading comments from people with an IQ less than 10 complaining about the journalistic bollocks this site presents to us, the user. I for one respect and enjoy the bollocks as much as I love reading about how devops/agile will suck me off once I move all my data to g-fi flash storage.
Standing at the edge of a virtual cliff.
WTF is that even supposed to mean? Can people not distinguish reality from virtual reality? Last time I checked virtual reality it was still all leisure suit Larry....
As studies go this is about as pointless as the 1982 study into the feeding habit of rabbits, carrots came out on top in case anyone was unsure, it followed a 1974 study about bears and where they shit, there was a study in 1962 about panda bears though that resulted in a restaurant joke.
Really? I can understand it with moving things, but I just never get the sense of depth.
I used to see all kinds of reactions when I built simulators though - your frame of reference has nothing outside the bridge windows so it sets peoples motion sickness off something chronic. You can also see everybody trying to counter the movement of the floor - which is stationary!
... more interesting is 6*9 in base 13
(personally I like base 12 especially when thinking about thirds and quarters) - need a beer now, a full-sized one, way past pub-o-clock. On the other hand, I am doing some stats, real stats, with pen and paper (not calculations, analytics!). And we all know: don't drink and derive!
Would it be significantly more or less stressful to have open ready access to futures' secrets.
Or would that be AI NEUKlearer HyperRadioProActive Weaponry for Special Secret Service Servering ..... and a Cracker of a Great Advanced IntelAIgent Game Changer.
Methinks that sort of development renders explosive Trident nuclear defences ...... well, defunct and oppressive. Future Defence+Virtual Security Programs are the Real Rage for Todays with 0Days to Conspicuously Trade and Virtually Exchange.
Quite AI Novel Special Project all that, Lester. Wanna Steer IT awhile?
Drop ypur panties, Sir William - I can't wait till lunchtime!
You don't so much read amanfrommars1's comments as decode them.
My personal approach is somewhat like the way you have to use on those "Magic Eye" books (remember them? must've been in the 1990ies IIRC), only not applying it to the eyes but the whole brain. A bit like meditation. You try to take it all in, don't focus on anything specific, and sometimes an idea or a mental picture or a clear sentence emerges.

And who, and/or what, is responsible and accountable for Immaculate Provision of those Sees, allthecoolshortnamesweretaken, for/from that which Sees and Seeds Future Realities via Virtual Means with HyperRadioProActive Meme Command and Control?
U and/or I ‽ . US ‽ . ....... DARPA Seeks $2.97 Billion in FY 17 for Futuristic Defense Projects
Does it/IT make you wonder what the MOD is/are experimenting with? Such certainly exercising my curiosity to know of cyber progress with other ways.... or otherwise as the case can also be.
.... this situation is deadly serious
Ensure that the Armed Forces will have strong cyber-defences, and that in the event of a significant cyber-incident in the UK, they are ready to provide assistance. The government will provide the Armed Forces with advanced offensive cyber-capabilities, drawing on the “National Offensive Cyber Programme” run in partnership between the MOD and GCHQ.
Pie in the sky and delusion in extremis, which I believe is akin to hubris
As minnows in seas full of sharks springs to mind. ...... but it does present an opportunity and vulnerability for expert exploitation and extensive export and a whole new trading market place and capital flight safe haven space too.
And some would be able to tell and prove to you that such can be heavenly and extremely convenient rather than hellishly disruptive and Great Game changing and mostly inconvenient.
If the MOD cannot think for themselves regarding supplies for what matters in the future with virtual security and international and internetional cyber defence , are they rendered as nothing more effective than puppet liabilities and ignorant servants of arrogant slaves to fast flash crashing systems of exclusive executive order operation and SCADA administration.
If waiting a few seconds for a picture causes you stress it's time to unplug.
Waiting isn't the stressful part. It's the inconvenient buffering that irks me. So you're watching something, right? And it has played fine for hours in a hurricane/earthquake/firestorm/apocalypse and you're really into what's going on and something extremely important is Just About To Happen when.... it all freezes and you get that stupid little spinny thing in the middle of the screen and if you're lucky a stuttery hiccup as it plays the fractions of seconds it receives as and when it receives them.
So watching horror movies is supposed to be stressful?
I tend to find them mostly amusing; a series of obvious "we're going to make you jump" moments connecting a series of strangely convoluted suicide attempts.
Seriously, if people don't know to stay in a group and not investigate weird noises at night when they're in a remote or haunted house... well, they have nobody to blame but themselves!
