I thought it was separating a stage, though it looked a little "big", but the announcer wasn't announcing it. Then a "second stage" separation seemed to occur, and that was wrong because there was only supposed to be one. Then a thousand shards started falling.
I was unable to watch the video as an ad started playing first. Then, a second advertisement video overlayed that video and started playing, too, covering the entire screen.
I'm going to assume the reason is nasty teens are trying to shove the sticks up the Mickey Mouse costume guy's rear end?
But they're not adverse to banging on the doors of apartments with guiris staying in them and demanding to see tourist licences, which the tourists don't have (the flat owner has the licence, not the guest). This happened to a young German woman I know, who was staying in a completely legal tourist apartment. They could have just looked up the address on the Catalan government website, but it's a lot more fun for two armed goons from the Mossos d'Esquadra to scare the shit out of a young woman travelling alone in a strange city, threatening to chuck her out onto the street if she couldn't produce the licence in 24 hours (of course they don't have the power to do this).
The correct course of action is for the government of where these tourists are mostly from to issue travel advisories to that area, making sure the papers in that area get word of it. Then the powers that be there, who profit from tourism, will "have a chat" with these enforcers, some of whom may work for them anyway.
None of this matters. Bag it and tag it's DNA. In 100 years or 200, none of this will matter.
We are like people in 1900 arguing about how to best shoe a horse to not grind up horse poop into dust the best way possible, so as to give those people in 2015 nice air to breath.
Except the difference in tech will be even worse 100 years from now.
An honest question: Is there anybody out there who reads this, of any race, who sees:
FB Reveals Woeful Diversity Numbers
And thinks, "Gosh! They're missing out on all the benefits of diversity! Poor Facebook!"
Or do they think, "They are being racist and need to do more."
Which is not what diversity is about. That's what Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action are about.
As with any theory, a Doubting Thomas' theory someone is wrong, that proves to itself be wrong most of the time, just implicates himself as the clown.
Your doubt less controls reality than the OP's un-sourced assertion. Request more info, or go look it up. Do not declare it should be considered false without additional info. Your judgment is proven wrong, and should scare you.

"The OS support engineers at Microsoft still maintain we are not one of the very few applications that really need true real time."
Another technological leap needed? (Opens blouse) This looks like a job for Porno Demand!
> They can protest the uneven playing field.
They created the uneven playing field. I would like to cordially invite them to have sex with themselves.
I was unaware of that. I thought he was just being clever.
Thank you for expanding my knowledge. I have now learned two things about it.
Well, regulations and the possibility of rent control being added to new construction properly scares away investors.
Politicians want you to build for them to take the pressure of limited housing off them, but also want the factional brownie points rent control and hyper-needless environmental impact analysis brings.
I say let the politicians rot in their own festering stew. California eased up on barriers to electrical plant construction after their running brownouts brought on by same.
Sovereign to within the limits of the people-created constitution, that is. Assuming there is one, as parliamentary systems are more vox populi vox dei.
This is upside down. The elected government is sovereign, and derives its necessary powers from the consent of the people.
The correct way to change a government's course is by electing new people. Did the people of Holland appoint a judge to overlord the elected government?

Microsoft: No, you are terrible programmers!
Kids, kids, you'really both terrible.
