"Hacking the machine" was only one of many attack vectors. The more common attacks desribed were fixing stuff to the side of your body, rather than to the front or to the back (easily twarted by making you turn sideways, or visually looking for the much more obvious bulges if you try to "hide" weapons that way), or hiding the weapons behind a piece of Teflon (which reflects the rays the same way as the body, hiding everything behind it... but there still might be tell-tale contours if not done right)

We can only take people's word for what wedding they are attending, therefore we are not responsible for guests booking under different names or choosing to attend another event. We will not question guests about their intentions after a reservation is made.

So, even if a person not in your wedding party leaves a bad review, you may get dinged for it if that person was mean enough to say he belonged to you when he checked in...

a teacher teaches

... but good teachers also listen. And recognize when a student gets it right, even if the student expresses it "strangely". Irate Engineer doesn't seem to be able to notice when somebody speaks about energy rather than drag... and even if both may be proportional to the square of velocity, they are not the same thing!

Hey Jimmy*, drag is proportional to the square of velocity *because* of air resistance. Thought you might like to know, but knowledge doesn't seem to be your happy place.

Please re-read "Jimmy"'s post. He was speaking about energy being proportional to the square of velocity, not drag. Reading comprehension...

What this country needs is a good five dollar plasma weapon.
