If you have to ask... Actually, the big benefit in Austin is the city owned utility. It will make it easier to procure right-of-way.
I have a gas guzzler because I have 5 kids and need to transport my family. I think the metric should be miles per gallon per person transported.
Did automation make IT easier? It seems to me that the tools for IT are easier than they were 10-15 years ago.
If the total isn't statistically significant, then I'd say there are other explanations. Let's say everyone saved up for the blockbusters at the expense of the smaller films--such an explanation has nothing to do with Megaupload. I call bull.
Please define creationism or denial of climate change, because I think you are vastly oversimplifying what other think/believe. I think you are referring to the origin of man and whether or not climate change is anthropomorphic or natural. Since science cannot prove something that isn't repeatable (check out the scientific method), I think that the origins of man cannot be proven--in fact, I think there is room for debate. As to the causes of climate change, I think a large debate continues about all the causes and over what is the best temperature for the earth. Of course, you could be right, but I think your argument is bogus.
Every story like this reminds me of the movie Idiocracy. Maybe we should just encourage people to have lots of kids. We could even use the useless ones as food!
I think the price is about 2x what they are currently charging... maybe 3x. They have 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013. If I bought each one, then I'd be putting out about $100 every 3 years. I guess you get more users.
I agree in general, but my wife and I have 5 kids. And I can tell you that having 5 kids means that we cannot be as watchful as those with 1 or 2 kids. People need to have more kids.
Without bankruptcy, there would be no interest expectations. Instead of interest, each person would owe their lives.
Since "science" cannot prove historical events, the only thing left is opinion. By definition, if something is repeatable or testable, it cannot be "proven" by scientific methods. All you are left with is belief.
When everything is corrupted, the only solution is the hammer.
Pretty much everything is marked up way too much at Best Buy except Apple and Nintendo stuff. So, if you need something Apple or Nintendo, you are set. Otherwise, they are way overpriced.
A barrel of oil when priced in ounces of gold hasn't increased all that much. The biggest issue is inflation, which is 100% caused by loose monetary policy. Monetary policy is set by the need to borrow by the federal government. If the government didn't borrow so much, the Fed couldn't increase the money supply so much.
Evaluate teachers based on their knowledge of their subject and their knowledge of how to educate. It isn't perfect, but they should at least be competent in these areas.
Make the test so long that you can only finish it if you know the material.
