Um. They would be right.

I don't see a staphylococcus computing Pi any time soon :I
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well, computing Pi is actually a pretty simple task.  It's an endless one, but a punch card machine can do it just as well (though a lot slower) given adequate memory.  And that's a pretty terrible measure of advancement.

Which isn't to say you aren't right.  A modern supercomputer could probably simulate a staphylococcus down to the molecular level if you fed it the right program, which could possibly qualify as it being more advanced.  But then, most modern supercomputers are just loads of processing power strapped together.  They are simple structures, but can be used to simulate arbitrarily complex systems.

In conclusion, this argument is stupid because no one defined their terms so it's become a semantics battle.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Hmm, yes. Hollow and semantic.
Yes, we're doing this joke again...
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Compared to multicellular life they're still awkwardly primitive. >____>

You guys are missing the point.

The problem is that laypeople usually think that microbes are primitive compared to almost anything that's larger than them.
Yes, exactly...

Saying larger organisms are less complex than a microbe is like saying a clockwork engine is less complex than a single cog wheel...
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

In case you were listening Flisch, you would have probably realized that I was not talking merely about organisms, but everything in general.

By "almost anything that's larger than them", it is exactly what it says. Basically, some people measure complexity using sheer size alone.

To give you an example, saying that microbes are more primitive compared to computers is like saying that an Analytical Engine is more advanced than a PS3.

Now do you understand what I am getting at, Flisch?



Microbes are so advanced they can replicate themselves, specifically every single one of the many millions of parts they have, almost flawlessly. It's virtually a miniature city down there.

Well, you're lucky, I guess.


Either that or most people around me like to favor electronics over biology, or simply don't care much about the latter.

I think so, Brain, but what if the hippopotamus won't wear the beach thong?

(Pinky)  Whoof, oh, I'd have to say the odds of that are terribly slim Brain.
(Brain)  True.
(Pinky)  I mean, really, when have I ever been pondering what you've been pondering?
(Brain)  To my knowledge, never.
(Pinky)  Exactly. So, what are the chances that this time, I'm pondering what you're pondering?
(Brain)  Next to nil.
(Pinky)  Well, that's exactly what I'm thinking, too.
(Brain)  Therefore, you *are* pondering what I'm pondering.
(Pinky)  Poit, I guess I am!

7 Habits of Highly Effective Pirates:
By Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary

Rule 1: Pillage then burn.
Rule 2. A Sergeant in motion outranks a Lieutenant who doesn't know what's going on
Rule 3. An ordnance technician at a dead run outranks everybody.
Rule 4: Close air support coverth a multitude of sins
Rule 6: If violence wasn't your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.
Rule 8: Mockery and derision have their place. Usually, it's on the far side of the airlock.
Rule 9: Never turn your back on an enemy.
Rule 10. Sometimes the only way out is through
Rule 11. Everything is air-droppable at least once.
Rule 12: A soft answer turneth away wrath. Once wrath is looking the other way, shoot it in the head.
Rule 16: Your ship's name is in the mouth of others: be sure it has teeth.
Rule 21: Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Take his fish away and tell him he's lucky just to be alive, and he'll figure out how to catch another one for you to take tomorrow.
Rule 27: Don't be afraid to be the first to resort to violence.
Rule 29: The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy, no more, no less.
Rule 30: A little trust goes a long way. The less you use, the further you'll go.
Rule 31: Only cheaters prosper.
Rule 34: If you're leaving scorch-marks, you need a bigger gun.
Rule 35: That which does not kill you has made a tactical error.
Rule 36: When the going gets tough, the tough call for close air support.
Rule 37: There is no “overkill”. There is only “open fire” and “I need to reload”.
Rule 38: Just because it's easy for you doesn't mean it can't be hard on your clients.
Priority number one: get paid.
Priority number two: Live long enough to spend your money.
Do what I do. Learn to feel good about yourself when you get paid.
