This just provides a false sense of security, think how easy it would be to gut a big 17 or 19 inch notebook, install the motherboard from an ultra thin model with a micro SSD flash drive and a small wafer battery from a tablet that will boot up and provide 5 - 10+ minutes of run time and still leave room for a few pounds of other "contraband" stuff in the case.
How is this even news unless you live in western MT?
I am much the same way, although never joined Mena, had the IQ scores, never saw a reason to join, could always find smart people to talk to on my own. I also really don't think Mensa is as elite as they pretend to be, as all you have to do is score in the top couple of percent of the population on any one a number of IQ tests. Which I suspect drops the entrance requirement down by a few percent however you cut it.
Assuming it is, I guess it is time for self destucting time locked crypto, maybe a password backed key on a usb device with self desctruct countdown
Where does this myth of slave labor pay in the oil industry come from? I live on the gulf coast in the middle of the U.S. petrochem region and the recent resurgence of U.S. oil exploration has lead to insane levels of job growth and prime pay for those lucky enough to work in the major petrochem plants. I was recently shocked by the reality of this at an extended family event at Easter, where I saw one of my wife's cousins, he is 23 years old, married with 2 young kids, and has a 2 year degree from local trade school and he makes over $100,000 per year doing shift work as an operator at one of the plants.
Correction here someone put a washer on a rod in the wrong place bewteen the opitical elements while assembling a measuring template device used in place of proper full diamter optical testing.
Wow all these replies and as far as I see, NO ONE seems to be concerned about what ever option is safest for the occupents of the car the computer is controlling.
No you don't you only need keys, and maybe not even that if you have certain skills
So you are saying you tend to kick in the doors of your friends houses in the middle of the night?
The real problem though with this bracelet tech is that it requires some sort of signal be sent to the gun, and the gun defaults to do not fire. The next step will be proximity no fire transmitters in "gun free" zones, police cars / officers, etc. These transmitters WILL be stolen by people with violent crimal intent. Imagine how safe this would make robbing a liquor store, just go in wearing your personal jammer
Buying handguns across state lines is already illegal, even in the more free states. Removing the more restrictive gun control states from the statement, it is already a federal crime (I think gun control act of 1968) to purchase handguns across state lines. If you do so you MUST buy from a licensed dealer who will SHIP it to a licencsed dealer in your state who will do the background check and approval paperwork, etc.
I know you wrote this to be a troll, but at the time the 2nd amendment was written in 1787 private ownership of cannon by wealthy land owners was somewhat common
For those are following this, at the time this was written the term "militia" meant men of potential military service age and regulated meant trained
I too am supporter of the 2nd amendment, but have concerns about the private resale market, and wish someone would offer a sensible option for the private seller to do background checks. Note I said OPTION, not MANDATE, as it is there is no way that a private seller can do a background check without going through a federally licensed gun dealer and paying fees, I would prefer it was done in an anonymous check system. Perhaps something where the potential buyer could fill out an eligebility form online which generates a security key good for something like 14 or 30 days, potential sellers could enter this number on a web site or send a text message with it, and get an authorized buyers name as a reply. The checking does not provide feedback that a sale occured, just that someone checked to see if the buyer was eligible to make a purchase, and the person doing they checking does not have to enter any personal information.
This was not torture to death, was not even close, it may not have been the most painless execution, but people die in far more painful ways in every hospital in america every day.
