Probably the most useful of the lot.

I've only had good experience with staffing agencies.
That's a rarer bird than a good full-time job. Realistically, the only enitity that has any good experience is the agency itself.
Because it's easy for them to let you go, that means they're also more willing to take risks in hiring you. I was able to get a job really fast right out of college with one, which helped establish my new skill set. Few people want to permanently hire somebody with a degree and no experience because it's too easy to find somebody who is a dud, even if they have a 4.0 GPA like I did.
This is a bigger reason why staffing agencies should be subject to the same laws as labor unions - even if it means that joining a staffing agency isn't a condition for accepting work at a given organization. If it really is about "flexibility" and not benefit-dodging "disposability", then they would welcome the challenge of competing with better forms of work.
The IT/tech world doesn't take well to third party representation, whether it is a staffing agency or a labor union - for the same reasons.
It seems like it's a preventative measure against legislation that would affect staffing agencies.
If they bring in those individuals, they can effectively immunize against the others that aren't brought in from the cold.
Luck, and pumping information to the FSB are the only things keeping him alive, trophy status being a side effect. Illegal disclosures from beyond the grave would only hurt the people doing them.
Do not expect that these deeds will go unpunished by subsequent administrations or that the odds will be in his unending favor.
I fully expect that Manuel (Man) Davis to be a hard nosed, chisel-jawed, Lunar cop working closely with his partner, Mycroft Holmes (probably a robot) to defeat a crime syndicate.
Make it a series on Netflix and I'm all on that. We haven't had a decent sci fi comedy on TV since Quark.
I pick up spam calls only when I'm overseas.
"Nej, det är lite för dyrt till mig just nu... Så jag önskar dig Gott Kineskiskt Nytt År från Guangzhou och en jättebra kväll! Tack för att du spelar!"
You want quality? Pay for it, but don't pretend that it comes from old gurus hands instead of robotic assisted manufacture.
I do and still end up seeing the same things. Once something gets hit by the ugly stick of globalization, it doesn't matter what you pay - the result is a lesser product.
Trade with Earth was bleeding them of water and would eventually lead to the colony's collapse.
They could probably have been self-sufficient if they hadn't been forced to send grain to Earth. But being a bunch of transportees and convicts, they didn't get a say in the matter.
Good luck explaining the finer points of a closed-cycle ecology, economics and politics in a 2-hour movie.
Yeah, "great". Fucking moron.
Please go read the recent BBC interview with an ex-jihadi to see some of the ways that al-Qaeda has been taking Islamic teachings out of context and twisting them to suit their purposes.
