Your time would be better spent pushing for the repeal of the 17th amendment and ending direct election of senators.

And the damage caused by landing on water with parachutes has got to be less than the explosions from the landings on the barges.
Probably not when they figure out how to land on the barge without exploding... at that point the damage from hitting the water and amount of cleaning & service required to be read for launch will be much more.
I hate to break it to you... but we aren't a democracy, we are a republic.
Lets say we changed that ratio a bit... maybe 1 rep per 50k citizens... that would perhaps bump the number of reps to 4,350... do you think that would be any more workable?
You'd think that... but it doesn't explain why I still get molested every time I fly.

So many assumptions, so little reality.
I would say something.
Even if your company has a strict prohibition against them?
I'd give him a pat on the back and maybe a small bonus, as long as it's suitably hidden and well done... playful,
So you've the ability to give away money at work for such non-work related things? Do please share where you work.
By whose/what standard? It's always fun discovering in a widely localized product what seems benign to one culture is horrible to another.
not going to get in anyone's way, etc.
So you can guarantee that for all users and use cases?
Customers like easter eggs.
Which customers are these? Those buying your 99 cent mobile app? Those buying a 50 dollar shrink wrapped or downloaded desktop app? Or those buying multi-thousand dollar enterprise systems?
Assuming the software is generally high quality, they're amusing, minor diversions that add a little fun for the users as well as the programmers.
Again, that depends on who your customer is and what their attitude is to unknown things being discovered in the software that was not documented and was not part of the RFP or compliance documentation.
What you see as a cute dancing frog or "Hello from the developers", some customers see as a sign of shoddy quality control and the possibility of backdoors.
A more intelligent person than the AC who said:
LOL. Which idiot wrote this summary? There were no "graphics on computers" before 1990 then?
There were cars before the Ford Model-T, would you claim that Ford did not user in the era of the horseless carriage?
There were electric cars before the Toyota Prius, but would you claim that Toyota did not user in the era of the electric car?
Ushering in the era doesn't mean you are first, but that you are the most effective/impactful.
By your logic, it should not be said that Apple ushered in the era of the smartphone or tablet, plenty of companies had them before... yet Apple was the first to get it right and establish broad appeal.
Actually they did mention it. They just rolled it out - however it is currently for businesses
Just? Volume enterprise licensing in some form has been around for quite some time, under it you can deploy whatever supported version Windows or Office or other licensed software you like.
Office 365 is the only real new thing as it makes process a little more visible as an individual can sign up for a individual subscription as well.
Given this is the first device to ship (that I'm aware of) with an Atom x7, comparing it to Atoms of old may be premature.
That still assumes the violation is noticed and acted upon.
Seriously, how likely do you think it will be for a former employer to keep track of their ex-employees so closely that this would be a serious issue?
Contesting it in court assumes it becomes an issue.
Far easier to simply ignore it, not reveal it to a future employer and assume Amazon never finds out that a someone in the bowels of their company ended up in the bowels of another company.
I want to double down upon what you are saying as you know far better than the parent what is going on.
Just today I had sub-sub contractors from Comcast trying to fix the cable from the box across the street to my home for an issue I first reported the issue in mid-December but after a few months of nonsense things finally got worked out.
After first having a visit from a person who appeared to be a Comcast employee declaring the connection between my home and the distribution box across the street bad (I was seeing
A week later received a note from a sub-contractor of Comcast (though with the Comcast letterhead on the door hanger and the sub-contractors name in the fine print) which said my cable needed to be replaced. Over the next couple of months I'd call them to check on the status with the work order # on the tag as things slowly worked their way through the Comcast and local city bureaucracies.
Eventually they told me that the work had been issued to a 'sub-contractor' (really a sub-sub-contractor) who took about a month to get things worked out as well between the city and them (which included two paintings of the paths of various utility lines under and around the street (much to the annoyance of the neighbors who didn't like the paint on their property)).
Finally the day of repair arrived (today) and they did their digging... alas they hit a rock when tunneling under the driveway of the neighbor in front of me (and right next to the distribution box) so they had to fill in most of what they did (amazingly professional in this way) and say that another team from the same company would have to come out in a week with a different boring machine to complete the work.
The pathetic thing about this whole process was that as far as Comcast is concerned, my issue has been resolved months ago by virtue of it being sent to an outside vendor... in the close out email even citing the fact that my signal strength had returned to normal (hint: it hadn't fully).
There is a part of me that is considering dropping Comcast service once this whole repair effort is complete (costing them $5-10k)... however they (unfortunately) provide the fastest internet for the price... when it works.
Businesses, however, are not people
Why so few people have read and/or understood the I will never understand as it says in part:
the words “person” and “whoever” include corporations, companies, associations, firms, partnerships, societies, and joint stock companies, as well as individuals;
Not really, you'd still get your name checked off on the voter rolls when you get your ballot and someone latter aggregates the whole thing. Biggest difference is that it would make it slightly less harder to vote for someone else (to prevent their vote) as you might end up being the second person to ask... Vs knowing ahead of time who isn't likely.
