    I think we can safely say the foreclosure part of the crash is pretty much done after 6 years.

    There are still 60,000 pre-foreclosure 15,000 foreclosures not yet on the market, 3,000 foreclosures on the market and only 110,000 for sale properties in California. How can you say the foreclosure part is over?

    TBTC.

    I learn something new from Patnet everyday.

    From Urban Dictionary:
    TBTC is an acronym for a global male sexual empowerment movement called Take Back The Cock. The basic mission of the movement is to restore the apparent inequity between females and males in terms of who is in control of dictating the timing, duration, and frequency of sexual intercourse.

    My friend complained to me that he thought he was going to go home with a girl but got denied, so I said, "TBTC or STFU!1"

    Or does TBTC have some other meaning?

    You're aware that anything physical - including DNA - can be simulated in a computer, right?

    Of course, but it would be simulated DNA based on what we suppose might be the underlying mechanism for real DNA. Imagine trying to create little tiny factories that have the plans for building all the life forms that have been on earth? I do not even know where to start planning such a simulation. Whatever I finally programmed it would only be a pale imitation of the real thing. For all we know DNA are just plans and there is some invisible (undetectable by our current technology) force that puts the matter together into animals.

    There is much more to life and intelligence than the possessor of life and intelligence can comprehend. We can speculate, but it is beyond human intelligence to understand human intelligence.

    Having said all that I am certain we can create a simulated intelligence that would quickly tire of the stupid humans and decide the world would be a better place without us.

    And they might be right.
