A thermostat is a bimetallic spring attached to a switch. If that's a robot, everything is.
So his non-existence would be better for society than his continued existence?
Your logical fallacy is the false dichotomy. There's lots of room in between murder and waving goodbye. Rehabilitation, it's not just a word in other nations in the developed world.
These cameras are well hidden. When the news of the arrest were announced, it was quite a surprise (... and some outrage...) that these existed at all.
What kind of asshole would assume that in the age of fifty dollar tablets, there's not a security camera on a thousand-plus-dollar payphone?
And if they had known, a well-placed blob of chewing gum would have achieved the same goal much more easily...
But then you have to be sneaky when approaching the phone. Better to be disguised before you ever approach it.
You do understand academia's purpose, right?
Beef for burgers is $3+ per pound (usually more like $4+ if you don't want mechanically-separated). Fresh vegetables tend to be $1-$3 per pound, unless you want to buy something weird out of season (e.g. asparagus in September). Not to mention, frozen vegetables -- either store-bought or frozen yourself -- "keep" and retain most/all of their nutritional value (unlike canned).
(By the way, if you're on a budget, switch to chicken instead of beef. Whole chickens cost less than $1 per pound.)
This "arm race" wouldn't ever occur. Apple and MS are considerably more hostile towards developers and the developers just accept it. Making the OS, Hardware and Store owner mad at you is not a recipe for success if you want to be an app developer.
I suppose Google could institute a policy of banning apps that try to circumvent ad-hoc user permission restrictions. Yeah, that would cut the arms race off at the knees. Good point.
I know, right? My fluorine & chlorine tap is totally contaminated with the stuff, and the city utility department refuses to do anything about it!
I'm asthmatic and allergic to dogs, you insensitive clod! And furthermore, my dad had a dog when I was a kid.
I personally blame my asthma on my mother smoking until she found out she was pregnant, and my father smoking until shortly before he died, including all throughout the pregnancy, in the car, in the car after I was born, etc etc. There's no family history of it on either side. But of course, there's no way to know. It's convenient, though, because one parent is dead and I don't talk to the other one.
And no, I am not passing on these genes. They're just not that fantastic. Good enough for my purposes, but they could be better even there. If I weren't asthmatic, I likely also wouldn't ever have become overweight.
I'm just impressed by an FBI that can find an anonymous prankster via TOR and a disposable email address in two days, but can't find a perpetrator who lost trillions of dollars from amongst our banks with 5 years to do it.
I agree with your conclusions, but not your premise. Any campus administrator could probably have tracked this guy down.
So, cops just walked with the pix from classroom to classroom until they found the perps.
Walk into some woods. Change clothes/reverse, put on or take off layers. Pop on a big hat. Walk out of the woods, make the call.
Or here's a snazzy idea for you. You know they'll call the cops on a bomb threat. Call them yourself. Walk to the edges of signal and call 911 on a used phone you got at a flea market or yard sale, make your bomb threat with them. Don't even need a contract to make an emergency call.
Note that I think anyone who actually does this does need serious help, and I would never do it, because lives can be lost while emergency services are dicking around with bullshit. Just saying, I've never been to HAH-VAHD and yet I can come up with trivial ways around all of this crap.
