Waste not want not. No that's not right. Monopolize sodomize? Hmmm better. Seriously as in investor I'd like to kick everyone involved in the balls MANY MANY TIMES.
Thier approach to security screening seems to work despite a highly and continuously motivated opposition.
It is not naive the TSA is naive. If you want security you can have it by doing real security screening and not "security theater." Ask the Israelis about it some time. I flew out of Amsterdam the day after a scare, it was the first security screening I have ever had. Someone looked me dead in the eye and asked my why half of my passport was in Arabic. He looked at me, listened to me, and made a real judgment. It is all bullshit anyway post 9/11 everyone knows that even if the terrorists are able to kill 90% of the people of the plane they are still not going to be able to kill all the passengers plus the external target. By making the risk=damage*likelihood equation infinite they have closed that door for ever. Someone tries to hijack the plane I am on and I am reciting "we few, we happy few" and the then going to stomp those fuckers to death with evey other top level predator on the plane. I will feel bad if they cut the stewardess' throat but that is not going to stop me wrapping my coat around my forearm and pulling the handle out of my luggage and reminding him has he dies that I will bury him in pigskin with his feet pointing to Mecca.
Buying Firewall used to put you on the federal watch list.
Unless it was a real free market. You know the kind with perfect information, no barriers to entry and no economic profit. You know the kind of free market that has never existed anywhere ever.
It is called the battery gas station. Have your battery removable to you can pull up to a station and have it swapped. All of the car companies told the inventor to go fuck himself.
It was death twitches and a tap to click gesture pad.
According to Outliers by Malcolm Galdwell most of the richest people ever got that way from oil. That's not subsidies that's their marginal tax rate.
There was a bit on something I read or NPR about how the louder the asshats are the more likely normal people will stop and stare and say... "Wow that guy is an asshat."
Your uncle probably also didn't give 10% of the car-fixing money to an anti-gay pyramid scheme, either
There I fixed it.
Disney; mining the public domain, then pulling up the ladder behind them.
Disney;stealing Mickey Mouse from a toy company then suing them out of existence.
Disney; making shot for shot remakes of Anime and not giving credit.
Disney; creating a work environment where the only way to get ahead is to have your boss fired because you made the VHS cover a pile of penises.
Disney; where only Mortimer knows what Eisner did to Walt.
I, Robot is an epiphany play. Small nuggets of enlightenment about psychology instead of religion
"Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?" BEST LINE EVER
I almost walked out of the Two Towers. What a shit fest that was. Each scene perfect total, package mindlessly undirected. Especially because the first had such a simple driving plot system "the ring tests the members of the company. Then Faramir takes the ring WTF? Fordo shows it to a Nazgul at the foot of Mordor DOUBLE WTF? That movie needs a Phantom Edit like the House of Representatives needs an enema.
On a side note... her my Enders Synopsis...
It like Harry Potter but the protagonist commits genocide!
No they just screwed up the balance of the book. Instead of stupid Vogon bullshit they should have padded out the original story to 110 minutes with far more guide entries. Like 50% 50% plot and guide... just like the book.
