I have. He's right. You're a tard.

Whoops, he's desperate for hugs again. Nice modding, manchild.
True, but the problem is that solar power isn't going to do you very much good when it's in shadow for a month. There are ways around it, but it vastly increases your construction-on-the-moon costs.
I'm not so sure I would bother. Nuclear scales pretty well; why not just increase the size of the nuclear plant by a comparatively small amount to get those amenities?
Remember, on the Moon, "day" is 650 hours long.
I'm not sure how respectable their space program actually was, and neither are a lot of people. They did some impressive stuff, but they also had this habit of blowing up on the launchpad or otherwise fucking up - we really have no idea how many cosmonauts died during the Soviet program.
A police officer does not stop being able to restrict your rights by arresting you when he is off-duty. Therefore, they do not have the same privilege of privacy.
No, they are not "just like anyone else." When you are entrusted by the state with abilities that a normal citizen does not have, you willingly put yourself under the microscope.
The same goes for elected officials.
Firefighters do not have the ability to strip a citizen of their rights.
Police do, and their ability to strip a citizen of their rights doesn't go away when they are off-duty (please don't bring up "citizen's arrest," people, it is a largely ignored concept for a reason). They are entrusted with large responsibilities, so the case for monitoring them is vastly different from that of a regular citizen.
Because in their professional capacity the police are agents of the state. My employer is not the state.
When you choose to seek the power that the police (or elected officials, for that matter) wield, you forfeit the right to be treated as a regular Joe Citizen.
I have more karma than you have mod points, Mark.
You're so close to getting that hug!
Keep it up, Mark. That hug is waiting for you!
It's cute how Mark Fink, aka "twitter", keeps going around modding me down because he doesn't like my stance on Mono.
Keep it up, Mark. Maybe Roy Schestowitz will give you a hug someday.
A majority-based representative democracy is no less a representative democracy than a direct-percentage representative democracy. It just has different methods of assigning representation.
Whether or not those different methods are better--that's a different question, and one on which I share similar views to yours; I would much rather more granular representation. But it doesn't stop being a representative democracy because you, personally, have your ox gored.
Wikipedia sucks for a lot of reasons, but this isn't one.
Just cite the application's manual/help file.
