I'm really shocked that more US fast food (crap food) places don't also server some form of booze...it would sure help things go down easier....
Well you're in luck then. Taco Bell has started serving beer, wine, and sangria at a couple of its stores. I expect they plan on expanding that to most of them. To me it seems like a copy off of Chipotle which already serves beer and margaritas at their stores.
Wasn't about to try that stuff though. It would have kind of defeated the whole point of being in France.
You were there in France and you did not get a Royale with Chese? Man, you missed out.
Also, how long were you there. When you are there long enough you start to get sick of trying to translate all the menu items to figure out what you want to eat. We ate at "MacDough" only once, but it was still a part of the French experience.
Or what if you killed a crooked cop by stalking him at his house and sliding needles into his eyes for 10 hours until he died. I would say it was the moral thing to do and calling the "authorities" would be wrong.
Or what if it was a lying, cheating politician? Or a lawyer? Not one of the few good lawyers out there that fight against the corporations of the world, but one of the ones that deserve to be fed to the sharks?
How do you see that implied. The 1966 TV show Batmobile is "the one" everyone thinks of as the original Batmobile. I never saw another one before that one. And every Batmobile made for the movies is a knock-off on that one. It certainly does not look anything like the comic version that I had to look up in a Google search and have never before seen in my life.
This judge is saying that a newly created car, that looks nothing like any car made before, is a derivative and a copy just because of the name. So then every elephantmobile would be a copy of the first elephantmobile. Even if it looked completely different, the fact that it has any elephant appearance at all would make it a copy. So then, wouldn't Hello Kitty be a copy of Catwoman?
And you get the experts to help make the estimate. Then they say it is too long and cut it down to 1/3rd the time estimated. And the project ends up going way over what was estimated.
I have stopped caring about the estimates. The boss can make his fantasy timelines all he wants. Sometimes, when it is a small project I come in on time. Other times the project ends up going over. It ends up cutting into the next project, which has a firm stop date, so they don't give even the original amount of time estimated for that project even though that was already estimated to be too low. So that project goes over also. I don't even look at the schedule. If you use unicorn farts for your estimates then I don't play your game. If you want to get rid of me for that, your projects will be even later while you spend time looking for new people to hire and train. Plus, I would be better off finding a new job anyway since pay increases much more with a job hop rather than staying loyal to a company.
It isn't fear of terrorism that causes this sort of reaction. At least, not directly. I don't think the police or teachers were necessarily worrying themselves that they might get blown up. Rather, it was a fear that - if the clock was a bomb used in a terror attack - THEY WOULD GET BLAMED for not doing something about it earlier. It's the same reason our politicians are so willing to pass the most obscenely unjust laws to chase down criminals: the penalty for not passing the law is disproportionately greater than passing it. If even one crime could have been prevented by the non-existent law (or had the clock been a bomb), far more blame is assigned to the people-of-authority who MIGHT have done something about the crime than to the actual criminal performing the act itself. It's no wonder people over-react in these situations. They aren't worried about being attacked by terrorists; they are worried about being attacked by us.
That's why we need to balance the penalties. If a politician passes an unjust or unconstitutional law, instant death by firing squad for everyone who signed the law. Even if they have been retired for the last 30 years. Now they would think twice about passing all that crap they do.
