This should've been posted at least YESTERDAY rather than 3pm on the day of. If they want more than just a "thank you" (and I'm sure they do) then people need more notice. Most people don't track these X Appreciation Days.
Citation? I see where a homeless man spent one night in jail and it was thrown out. That was one individual cop, not Florida.
That was your chance to teach him some basics of economics and the term opportunity cost. You and all your friends will take your business elsewhere vs. the extremely small cost of letting you charge your phones.
OSM has similar issues. People who add to OSM are often morons about what they add. Creating new types like "yes" instead of using actual types. Translators from OSM to something more useful like a file geodatabase or shapefiles often get the geometry wrong, too. For example, creating a linear lake (the perimeter) rather than a more appropriate polygon. So, OSM has significant issues when trying to use it for non-casual purposes. On the other hand, it is generally the most complete set and that can help account for its gross deficiencies.
I took my AP computer science test way back in 1986 and while I don't have the test with me, I certainly remember it being A LOT harder than this. I could've finished this test in 20 minutes or so. Did I get better with age? Am I overestimating my high school computer science abilities? Or, have the standards fallen?
Should mod parent up and GP down. I'm with Lauren. Regarding GP, when he says "And hey, I'm not personally offended by that kinda shit - I'm a guy." I'm offended by this. I'm a guy and I'm not just offended by that behavior ("that kinda shit") but especially by that sexist comment. "I'm a guy" supposedly means that you shouldn't be offended by it? That's exactly the behavior the OP is talking about, albeit it's a generally pervasive problem and nothing to do with gaming industry. Guy or not, you may or may not be offended by it. By virtue of you thinking that "I'm a guy" shouldn't be offended by it--that's the problem.
You're missing the point. The idea here is that a reasonable person realizes that the dude in the stormtrooper outfit isn't carrying a real gun. To fulfill the "law" the principal must report this, but she might as well do so using the non-emergency number. If the police don't actually respond, who cares.
Note you could call the non-emergency number. The law doesn't require you dial 911.
It's ok, he's an amature.
I'm thinking the same thing. Maybe it's a ploy. After the Republican president and Republican-led House (and fairly even Senate) first passed the Patriot Act into law in 2001, having Obama support it now is the best way to have the Republicans of today reject it. Hell, you can steer the Party of No around right now just by having Obama support the opposite viewpoint of what you want.
In the U.S. a federal crime is worse because you end up going to a federal pound-you-in-the-ass prison.
He's getting fined for it, and it could become significant. I'm not sure what my opinion is on it, either. I don't like that his usage of land was put into law by others, after he had bought it. But then again, he bought a golf course and is trying to do something totally different with it.
You must be new here.
500 milli-....what? It's a prefix. You can't be serious that you mistook that for something other than 500 million. Even so, maybe it's just a small typo that you could ignore, much like "prety."
