Temperature is already over 100F in my back garden. It's still morning. Admittedly, my thermometer is in the sun, but still.
Normal temperature this day of the year is 68F.
I can't find my behind. I think it has sweated off.
uh excuse me

climate change isn't real

it's just a un conspiracy

look, it's snowing somewhere, dummy

Strange that you're so warm. I woke up very cold this morning.

I was under the impression it did, but not in a usable way.

"Another particle somewhere is known to have an opposite state to this one's" doesn't actually count as information (it's no more information than knowing they were entangled, anyway).

I don't watch much American television so I'm not entirely sure if this is common.

I mean, the last time I saw something so ridiculous on television was a Japanese car commercial that used the intro song of an H-game.
It's more or less business as usual for entertainment news. I'd say in the US but as far as I know it's pretty standard for most countries.

"Another particle somewhere is known to have an opposite state to this one's" doesn't actually count as information (it's no more information than knowing they were entangled, anyway).
You can, however, use it as the ultimate way of verifying normally sent encrypted information (entangle two particles, keep a running measurement of them, and then send your measurement with the information along with a time stamp. It becomes literally impossible to falsify once the distance between the two ends gets long enough due to speed of light limitations).

Entanglement is also more information-dense than normal information transfer methods - iirc (number of qubits) = sqrt(number of bits) in terms of information content.

I vaguely recall you can send just one direction and get a bunch of information about particle states out of it. Though not faster than light, obvs.

I recall a piece of fiction where someone figured out how to detect whether or not a particle was entangled without checking both of them, and they used it as a (very expensive) emergency alert system by disentangling some of the bits in the transmitter in a pattern that could be interpreted by all of the recievers attached to it. It's clever, at the very least, but while I don't know enough to dispute it something still tells me it's impossible.

I think that goes against the uncertainty principle. Or sounds like it does.

Final Fantasy VII is actually really, really good. Like "This changes everything I knew about JRPGs" good.

It may be twenty-year-old news, but my first experience with Final Fantasy VII was Advent Children and watching Dirge of Cerberus LPs. Even as a young weeaboo I knew the FF7 spinoff franchise kinda sucked, and that opinion hasn't changed over time. But FF7 itself gives me the feeling that I got when I played FF4 for the first time.

Yeah, it's almost like they got it right the first time and didn't need to keep on trying to reinvent the wheel since then.

Are there any reissued version that just modernize the graphics and fix the bugs?

Eehh, sorta'. The steam version and stuff that's based off it apparently has some tweaks. Doesn't look like much done in the way of graphics improvement, though.

There was a remake/remaster announced last year as well, but it doesn't appear to be out yet. Also apparently is going to be more remake than remaster so it won't be quite the same.
