I suspect aircraft carriers are where the battleships were in the First World War. Great for force projection against lesser navies, but have to stay far from shore to keep from being overwhelmed by small, cheap, missile boats and land based missiles and aircraft. As always, you can't know until you try.
registration = list of houses to raid. a list that has been used time and again by totalitarian governments, including GB.
You know V for Vendetta wasn't a documentary, right?
...and still have access to the superior Linux command line tools.
I see you haven't learned PowerShell yet.
Powershell is a scripting environment, not a command line. The fact that you can enter your script interactively doesn't change the many inadequacies it still sports.
Wait. What does Capitalism have to do with democracy? Some Capitalist countries, especially the richest ones, are democratic, but democracy is by no means a required part of the Capitalist economic system.
A better statement might be to say that central planning of economies doesn't work. While central planning is a typical feature of Communism, they aren't always the same thing.
When the only tool you have is a hammer...
You know the rest.
Every problem looks like a thumb.
Did I get it right?
I find the truth is almost the opposite. The REST API is pretty good, at least compared to anything the OGC has put out. While ESRI's tools are okay for authoring maps, their server software is some of the worst crap I've ever had to work with. It's slow, and buggy. And slow. Map tile generation takes 7000 longer than on open source software, on the same hardware.
While technically all their stuff is documented, they have a nasty habit of creating a new documentation portal for every major release. And Google always takes me to the version from three releases back.
Rather than standardization, I just want a way to take a map document and turn out cartocss, or mapnik styles.
... and shit
There's your problem.
When buying my last dishwasher, the salesperson gave me the big list of things that can go wrong, was really going for the hard sell on the extended warranty. I put on my best concerned face and replied "Oh gosh! Is it really that likely to break? I certainly don't want to buy such a poorly made appliance."
It's always fun watching them back-pedal like mad.
The Koran is more internally consistent, having a single author and single editor, and is read in its original language.
Oddly, in Canada, the opposite is true. Rifles are widely owned for sporting purposes. Handguns associated with law enforcement and criminals. As such, it's pretty easy to get a rifle, but much harder to get a license to buy a handgun. Unless you're a drug dealer, self defence rarely enters into it.
As an aside, we tried having a registry for firearms, but that idea was so flawed I have a hard time imagining why any Americans think it would work. What does work is licensing the gun owner.
Girls aren't better students because they are thinking about their future careers, they are better students because of either biological differences and/or society norms that make them more obedient.
You're almost right. There's little evidence to suggest that women are biologically more obedient than men. More likely, women are better students because the metrics used to measure success in education are crap. In the past, they favoured boys. Currently they favour girls by a small margin.
The easiest solution is to stop using grades for inappropriate purposes, such as employment selection. GPA should be a relative number used only internally by the school. Externally distributed transcripts should show only pass or fail.
