No politician that already has any real power is going to want to reign in the NSA.
I think it's been a while now since politicians were really in charge of this sort of thing.
Did anyone else spot that?
I'm looking to see where I said drums can't be used to create notes but I think you are going to have to help me.
Maybe you are assuming I'm dyslexic and wrote notes instead of tones?
Both presumably. By collecting them they scare people. The judgement was $650K, even if that is above his net worth (it may or may not be), they may be able to garnish it from future wages. $650K is below the lifetime earnings of a lot of people.
If my country shafted me like that, well, there are plenty of other countries in the world I wouldn't mind living in.
I'd send them a little letter once I'd got there telling them in the sweetest of words where to put their fine.
OK I watched that. You'll have to help me out. At what point in the performance did they make music?
Jeeeezus how many times have I heard this. Go and listen to a piano-violin duo playing Souvenir d'un Lieu Cher then come back and tell me someone with a pair of turntables messing around with SOMEONE ELSE'S MUSIC is a musician. I'm sure they'd like to think they are but until they pick up an instrument, electronic or otherwise, that is actually capable of creating notes they are not.
The stuff you are talking about is fine for people who don't really want musicianship. And good luck to them. Each to his own.
The NSA saved America's arse, whereas in every other country in the world who aren't blessed with NSA protection, there are now tens of millions of bricked computers.
Do people really have "stupid" written all over their foreheads?
I had a generic Android tablet (with jellybean) before I bought my Asus Fonepad.
The only showstopper was battery life. Everything else was perfectly acceptable and it was an absolute breeze to root.
But the battery life was pretty dreadful -- an *absolute maximum* of 5 hours with all connectivity disabled and minimum brightness screen, whereas the Asus runs all day and night without even thinking about those things.
How many cents in the dollar do you think a fire sale in a bust motor factory would raise? I'm assuming there's no way you could sell it as a going concern.
There again it's not my government so who am I to ask.
Exactly this. Mrs Queen is not a member of any political party. We don't know what the rules for a president would be, but it's pretty certain they'd build the same old party political self-interest into them.
Slippery slope is a fallacy when invoked after a first action. That fallaciousness starts looking a bit dodgy after the second step. Then after the third, it's pretty much QED.
Define "push bike"
Name commonly used by people who don't live in Portland.
Go, US Intelligence!
"Oh, and it's who's, not whose."
Not this time it isn't.
"Whose watching" is the best one line reply since "Pretentious, moi?"
Great idea. We could also replace the Olympic games by much faster/higher/longer/more accurate machines.
