I email the relevant IT team as a matter of course to tell them it's not appropriate (mostly to no avail), but is there any legislation â" in any territory â" which addresses this?"
They might be able to sue you for spamming them, but I doubt they have a case.
A larger sample size is not inherently better.
Incorrect. Else, why "sample" the entirety of a group when running elections? Note that you're talking about random samples, and as we all know, randomness does not guarantee heterogeneity.
Letting people have guns without being part of a well-trained militia is also not on the things the Federal Government can do, but here we are.
Words change meaning over time. "Well regulated" means "well armed, provisioned", not well-trained, and "militia" means "ordinary citizens acting as makeshift military", not a formal military unit. And technically, "letting people do X" is not an action; the federal government has its roles rigidly defined, and "restricting citizens from owning armaments" is not one of those roles.
But I don't trust YOU to not misuse a gun.
The reason why the second amendment recognizes a right to bear arms is because we (and the founders) don't trust ANYONE not to misuse government, which is a more powerful weapon than any gun.
If we replaced "gun owners" with "business owners" and "guns" with "dumping toxic waste," we wouldn't even be having this conversation.
If we replaced "gun control" with "global thermonuclear war", we also wouldn't be having this conversation. Bad analogies are bad.
Maybe we'll sue the maker of the doormat too, just for good measure.
Well, it did welcome a criminal in, didn't it?
why would you use people as batteries
Spite? The AIs seemed fairly emotional, and not very forgiving. Of course by the end of the second movie Neo proved that the "real" world was yet another Matrix anyway.
And that's to say nothing of the 10's of millions of farm animals that worked in the same period and were replaced as well.
they weren't replaced. They were baked into meat pies as their usefulness waned.
