The point is, in an emergency there is no checklist
Hey Anonymous Coward, there sure as hell is. The whole point of a checklist is you remain calm and 'work the problem.'
If you're in the cockpit of a 747 and the engines flame out at 35K feet the first thing you do is grab your checklist.
Sometimes you don't have any choice in the hours you and your kids need to keep.
If you want to hang out at The Olive Garden at 9pm get a sitter, or don't have kids. Forcing some poor exhausted toddler to sit in a high chair because your work hours means you can't enjoy unlimited breadsticks until after their bedtime is child abuse.
Except your body won't stay on NYC time. It'll align itself with the sunlight hours you're now experiencing in LA. If you're a night owl in NYC, you'll be a night owl in LA, after that period
Only because you keep staying up late.
I travel a lot for business, and, if the schedule allows it, I'll often stay on my 'old' time zone, sometimes for 4 or 5 nights. It's not hard because it's what you're used to.
I tell people my 2 year old goes to be at 7:30PM and wakes up at 7:00AM, then has a 2 hours nap. I've gotten everything from incredulous stares to accusations that I'm somehow a bad parent for letting my kid sleep that much
Same here - Lights out at 7:30 and a big nap in the afternoon, Although my 2 year old boy seems to be ready to get up at 6am most mornings.
I think the reason you (we) get stares is parents have to adjust their lifestyles if they want their kids to get enough sleep, and they're not keen on that. I see people hauling their exhausted kids around at 9pm and I'm like "What the hell?"
So determined are you to avoid acknowledging that, yeah, this fits pretty darned well the idea of a "flying car" that you'll move the goalposts so now it's only called "flying" if it uses something that currently is physically impossible? So, birds don't really fly either, then?
My point is that for 50 years, popular culture has 'trained' us as to what a flying car is / should be. It's Doc Brown's hover-converted DeLorean. It's Korben Dallas's taxi. It's George Jetson's car. It's Deckard's Spinner. When you talk 'flying car' rightly or wrongly that's what people expect.
A Flying Car uses some kind of anti-gravity device. It can float. Don't show me a hovercraft, helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft.
For greater clarity but so as not to limit the generality of the foregoing, see:
Artists have always made money by touring and the recordings have never given them much income
How exactly does the author of an e-book "tour" and make money?
DRM doesn't effectively control reproduction.
Sure it does. If you buy The Avengers on Blu-Ray and you want to put it on your iPad it's by no means an easy process. If it was, you could just put the disk in your computer and drag it to the iPad.
The only problem is that, sadly, people aren't going to care.
Exactly right. My TV is online, my DVD player is online, my IP-TV PVR box is online. No one will care that their game box has to be online.
This is not a threat to consoles - What is a threat is the fact that, more and more, people just play sophisticated games on their tablets.
The bigger problem with having an Israeli stamp on your passport means if you try and enter other countries in the region you are subject to being denied entry or detained simply for having been to Israel.
Mostly hellhole misogynistic anti-semitic countries you shouldn't be spending your money in anyway.
Last time I was in the Middle East I went from Israel to Jordan to Egypt. No troubles crossing the borders at all. In fact, the biggest hassle was subsequently getting into the USA with Arabic Egyptian and Jordanian visas in my passport. (I'm Canadian.) Eventually I just got a new passport.
