Yes, I got the parody, but the horrible thing is that I've seen the same sentiment for real. A major newspaper editorialized that people who didn't want to go through the TSA porn scanners could just take the bus or the train. The notion that there are places unreachable by bus or train completely escaped them.
So you've got a vulnerable web app that can't be fixed with new vulnerabilities being introduced all the time.
That's what web application firewalls are designed for. Installing one takes less schedule time than doing things right would take, and it might work better than nothing.
Though of course this is not a technical problem, it's easier to paper over a people problem with a technical patch than it is to fix people.
"Brain Storm: The Flaws in the Science of Sex Differences", Dr. Rebecca Jordon-Young.
The literature, on careful examination, turns out to be full of floating definitions, hidden assumptions, and outright discarding of data.
There are sexually dimorphic places in the hypothalamus, but it's really tough otherwise to tell a male brain from a female brain. The differences are a matter of overlapping bell curves at most.
See the book "Unlocking the Clubhouse" for how high-achieving girls fascinated by computers suffer a death by a thousand cuts and switch fields despite their preference.
Tesla purchases are interstate commerce. Constitutionally and practically that's a matter of Federal jurisdiction.
How do you spend it over the Internet?
Someone in $REPRESSIVECOUNTRY with a stack of unmarked bills can't use it to order the Kindle edition of $BANNEDBOOK. Or to donate to Wikileaks.
If adult entertainment sites accepted it as a way of getting around their endless headaches with credit cards, there'd be a continuous demand for them.
Then on top of that it misses the point, that if you're trying to prevent people from starting WW3 on their own initiative, you don't let them choose the password. You should have the bomb builders set it. Bomb building was always kept carefully separate from the military.
Someone might pay to attain that sort of pseudo-immortality.
The legal system can't afford to lose any more public confidence and still continue to function. A new hearing shows a willingness to take their jobs seriously.
The system had to coordinate with multiple independently run systems from multiple agencies and wasn't led by anyone with authority to dictate terms or experience in ugly systems integration.
It's a useful trait for good and for evil.
The German man on the bus in the story below may have been a psychopath. He was able to yell abuse at a crying woman. On the spur of the moment, he was able to manipulate the authorities superbly. He saved her life:
The NSA was conducting a military operation against an ally.
If they are really that good as opposed to being experts at looking good, they can
o Found their own company and get rich as it grows
o Buy stock in the company they lead to success and profit from that. That's "buy", not "be granted options".
The big rewards should go to the producers, or to the providers of risk capital. A CEO is a hired hand and does not deserve entrepreneurial rewards.
CEO pay is no more a free market phenomenon than Congressional pay. Compliant boards and "compensation consultants" (wonder who pays them?) rig the system.
The current system is like paying Michael Jackson minimum wage while his business manager becomes a centimillionaire.
Unless, of course, you think Carly Fiorina made her money with her Randian inventions and "creative contributions".
