The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Lag by model and year.

83 was a good year. It only took 30 milliseconds to process......whatever it was you needed to process back then........like........calculating how many cabbage patch kids you could produce per hour or whatever.
Such potential!

The first thought provoked by such strategic design graphs is amazement that somebody got paid good money for that shit.

The second is that someone like Pyrrho did the real work, and not the guy who got paid good money for it.

You wouldn't, because the Bosses make that garbage themselves.

You might find work picking up and delivering McDonald's orders using your own car, Uber-style. It's all the rage lately.
