Indeed, it is ridiculous, although despite your focus on that theme, you don't seem to understand the real "why" of it....
Now THAT is news for nerds!
Ignorance is not freedom, however much it may feel like it.
The veracity with which this "upgrade" is being pushed displays a stubbornness that can only be attributed to MBAs with no idea of what Slashdot is about.
Right, because nerds have never been known to compulsively obsess over doing things their way regardless of what the user wants. I suggest that your stereotyping doesn't help; focus on the problem, not your hypothetical reasons.
Also, I'm not sure that "veracity" means what you think it means. But then, I'm a nerd with an MBA, so what do I know?
If you want to hear from us on the beta, why does mail to the given email address bounce? Maybe fix your stuff.
Mine went through this morning. I expect it's directly related to mailbox capacity and the sheer amount of hate they've received today.
I would say the majority of people break the law every time they get in the car, because the speed limits are constantly changing and our focus is elsewhere.
If your focus is elsewhere, you have no business behind the wheel of a multi-ton death machine. Best thing I ever did was learn to ride a motorcycle; if done right, that teaches you to be hyper-aware of your surroundings, a skill which you then apply to driving 4-wheeled vehicles as well.
Clearly the post-Taco Slashdot falls in the second category.
This isn't about expats living/earning wages overseas, it's about Americans using overseas bank accounts to hide income that they earned in the US, in order to avoid paying taxes on that.
That might be the way they sell it on that side of the pond, but the fact of the matter is that US citizens living abroad are still required to file, and (generally, if they live in a low-tax country) pay, US taxes. If I in Switzerland earn an income based entirely within the borders of Switzerland, the US still wants a cut, and the law is designed to catch such foreign residents in addition to US residents.
Oh, how I miss self-righteous Americans. I'll renounce as soon as I have a new passport, thank you very much. In the meantime, perhaps you should consider why other countries don't charge their citizens, who also happily travel home once in while.
If my company had stock and you asked me how it'd been doing, I'd know that you hadn't bothered with even the most basic of research prior to the interview, and you'd fail. Not a smart question!
70 lbs, near enough. Achieved through dieting and deciding to train for a marathon at the age of 26. Good enough for you?
Fat = lazy.
The GP is right; whether they disregard parts of the constitution themselves or not has no bearing on their own constitutional protection. Even convicted criminals (the NSA is only accused by some) are protected by law.
She would not know, she did not make it.
Why does she need to have made the dish in order to know what is in it? She just needs to know who to ask. And in my experience, regarding peanut allergies and cherry allergies, if they don't know off the top of their head, they've always known who to ask.
Given that she didn't know there was ground beef in the three bean soup, she clearly didn't know who to ask....
Apparently the most important function of Google Glass is to summon "Internet Tough Guys" to post on Slashdot.
And then there are smartass cock-gobblers like you who are obviously in
search of a good beating which is obviously overdue.
Brilliant. Even just mentioning the topic works!
