The Beatles should do a reunion. Why are some of the cats naked? Why didn't they make any sequels? This cat was exploited to death... Batman vs. Batwoman She did nothing wrong. Ugly, stupid, annoying protagonist Is this still getting made? Is this sci-fi or horror? Is she getting uglier? View all posts >

[quote]TLDR: How is it NOT her fault?[/quote] Because she hired people who had just one job and failed at it, what's so hard to understand? There are many cases in history for example when companies, businesses or whole countries were destroyed because their leaders where surrounded only by incompetent idiots. [quote]Anyone can have an idea. A true entrepreneur does what’s necessary and LEARNS what’s necessary to make those ideas actually happen. Holmes did none of that. She just used her family’s contacts to pull a massive con on a lot of undeservedly rich dudes who thought (and still do think) that they’re a lot smarter than they actually are.[/quote] Holmes had the idea and took action - she found investors and then hired people - scientists, reasearchers, technicians - to make her idea reality. However those guys failed at their job, how was this Holmes' fault? No, it's one of the worst movie I've ever seen... It says in the "Recommended For You FAQ": [i]We take all of the movies and TV shows that you have either rated or added to your Watchlist and then compare your data to ratings made by other IMDb users. We can then find movies and TV shows that people with similar tastes to you like. For each recommendation, you can see a list of the movies or TV shows upon which the recommendation was based. You have either rated these titles highly, or added them to your Watchlist.[/i] "She had an idea, but ideas are cheap." Yeah, but her idea was revolutionary, and no one else came up with that idea until then... "She did not have anywhere close to the technical or scientific knowledge necessary to realize that idea." Yes, but this didn't stop many entrepreneurs from achieving big things. You just need to hire the right people and put them do the job... "Jobs may not have been one tenth the engineer Woz was (or anyone else in Apple), but he knew what was possible and generally how to accomplish it." She modelled herself after Jobs, who also didn't have much technical expertise but managed to come up with incredible products just by coordinating much more skilled people who did all the hard work... "But she never had the slightest idea of how to actually MAKE the thing she was promising." And this is why she kept hiring and firing people who couldn't do what she asked for. Jobs did the same thing, and was very frustrated when his employees didn't live up to his expectations. "Hey, I can have an idea right now for a pill that cures every known disease. I have no idea how to make it, but I know it'd sell like crazy. Holmes's business model was essentially that." Anything is possible, even a pill that could cure every disease will probably be made one day - it would probably be filled with nanorobots - small, intelligent robots, that would detect what is wrong in the body and then would go and fix the problem: destroy bacteria and viruses, fix cells, remove toxins, etc.... We are probably decades away from this technology but with enough money, time and the right people to work on this project it can be done! What happened to the Batfleck? [quote]Larry David[/quote] Also known as "the bald asshole"..... Is it really that hard to shuck oysters, why can't a regular waiter do it, do you really need a specialised person for this? Why can't they shuck the oysters themselves? Sometimes the police spreads false or incomplete information to the media, so the criminals would make a mistake and catch them, but they aren't allowed to do this in court, Bundy had access to information that wasn't available to the general public.
