Perfect! Then we can wait 5 years for the first draft, 10 years for the final spec, and end up with requirements that are so complex and redundant that it'll take 3 times the memory available on most "smart" devices to implement. *LOL*
1495 Quarantining of Mercenaries in Switzerland.
While not 100% effective immediately, it did drastically reduced the infection rate. WHICH is really the goal.
Now, if your one of those "100% or don't bother trying" people, you're part of the problem.
But then again, allowing infected people to migrate all around the world seems so much better option. I mean, how else are we going to reduce population by 7 billion people to "sustainable" levels like the Georgia Guidestones suggest?
These new batches of "Capitalist Commie" countries sometimes have the worst of both capitalism and communism, such as 1) wage slavery, and 2) no ability to do anything about it politically.
One could argue the US was such a country during the late 1800's. The "big 3" mega-oligopolies bribed the system up the wazoo such that democracy was a zombie at the time. (Some argue we are headed back that way now.)
I used to be a big Logitech fan. Not any more.
I had one of their trackballs for close to 10 years. I was happy with it and loved it, so I bought a new one when it failed. The new one died in 9 months.
So I bought one of their mice, 'cause I've always had good luck with them. It died in 6 months.
Logitech makes absolute CRAP nowadays. There is no way in hell I'd trust them to keep my house working
It is grim because we don't want to "offend" anyone with the proper response (quarantine the zone) . Political Correctness run amok is going to kill people.
How many dead or sick people before we stop worrying about feelings and sensibilities?
Last I heard, the catastrophe FUD from the AGW ecomarxists was that mostly everyone's going to die from it anyway.
So really, most of them won't.
You link one paper from Harvard on "why terrorism doesn't work".
I'll refute that by pointing to:
1) 8 guys sneaking onto planes with boxcutters and crashing them into buildings is terrorism
2) 15000 psychos taking over chunks of country with astonishing brutality is not terrorism (as referenced in that paper), and 'thousands of psychos taking crap over' HAS worked* repeatedly through human history; from the "Barbarian invasions" of Roman times, to the Huns, the Mongols)
*maybe not in the longest scales, but certainly enough to enmiserate a generation or three.
The original screws were probably bronze, not brass. Bronze has no appreciable zinc while brass contains a lot of zinc. Immersed in sea water, brass will dezincify and corrode.
Most marine raw water systems use bronze fittings for this reason.
Stainless isn't suitable for below the waterline applications because the chromium can't form a protective oxidization layer due to the lack of oxygen exposure.
Your boat would have sunk with brass or stainless screws.
they're going to find it hard to secure the financing and trade deals they're going to need to make this work.
I submit that current trade agreements such as TIPP only work to lower wages and shift jobs overseas. In which case a vote for independence would be very beneficial to the Scottish people.
GAHHHH I did! damn you fingers!
Tapping a keyboard three times to type special character. No Swype. Caps always showing, regardless of actual capitalization. All but Unusable with one hand (one handed typing jokes aside). Auto Correct that guesses wrong more often than it should. The interface is not as intuitive as Apple or iOS users claim it is, IMHO.
Then convert the wind power into hydrogen, for longer term storage, when wind is not available. Yeah, it isn't very efficient, but it is better than wasting it on feeding the grid that doesn't need it.
Because artificial manipulations of free markets always works out as intended!
The crappy keyboard is one of the biggest reasons I hate my iPad. It is almost unusable for me. There is a reason why all the autocorrect humor is screenshots of iOS.
