"Oh, looks like you have an outstanding warrant for that Blockbuster video you forgot to return 10 years ago."
You think the average Kansan really cares about this?
E. coli that invariably comes from an animal source, like a leaky nearby cistern?
Hopefully you can whitelist sites like click-to-play in Chrome/Chromium.
Do McDonalds workers even get paid vacation? I worked various line cook jobs for years, not one gave sick or vacation time (this is full-time, by the way). If you got sick, not only do you get no pay for staying home, but you also have to get someone to fill in for you. That means calling up your coworkers at home and trying to convince them to come in on their day off. If no one bites, you don't stay home. Officially they don't want you to work if you are sick, but the reality is you do it if you want to keep your job, and everyone knows it.
I think what most slashdotters don't realize is that most non-salary, service industry jobs have no benefits at all, full or part time. That's no 401K, no insurance, no vacation, no sick leave, no holidays. Nothing. That's the reality of a huge number of jobs in the US.

Netflix works fine on my Linux desktop. Just need to install DeCSS to get the DVDs to play.
Forgot your meds this morning?
Wow, talk about your moving goal-posts. No true Scotsman would disagree with me, right?
Must be the corporate pool round back.
When google voice first came out, you couldn't make outgoing calls. GP probably still thinks that's the case (which everyone else knows is not).
Who's more desperate, the person being accused of being desperate, or the person doing the accusing of being desperate?
