On the flip side, taxi drivers have many more hours behind the wheel. I thinks it's fair to say that there are many factors which contribute to both raise and lower a taxi's risk of getting into an accident.
Point was that you should be training/practicing on a regular basis, as well as cleaning it and checking it to make sure it's in working condition.
Hmm. It sounded like you were recommending revolvers over automatics because they were more reliable when left unattended for long periods.
My point was that the question of the battery is not too relevant, as it shouldn't be an issue if you are properly maintaining your gun.
That's why a revolver makes a better home defense gun than one with a clip and a slide and a safety. Those guns jam and misfire much more often when left there untouched for a year or more than the much more simple mechanism in a plain revolver.
You probably shouldn't be using a gun for home protection if you're going to let it sit untouched for a year or more.
Is there an online (easy) guide on how to set this up? I notice that video streaming quality goes down during primetime. It's not just Netflix either. HBO Go was so bad that I resorted to downloading GoT via DirecTV VOD service and watching it from my DVR rather than stream through the Roku.
> watch a few hours of commercials every week, and maybe a few hours of actual show.
If you're ratio of commercial:content on basic cable is anywhere close to 1:1, then you're doing it wrong. Even if you don't use a DVR, the actual ratio on the vast majority of networks is 1:2, or about 18-20 minutes of ads and 40-42 minutes of show every hour.
> Every single time I surf the menu and see something that looks appealing, and change the channel, it's right to 5 minutes of commercials.
That's because you surf away from channel A during the commercials, so of course there are going to be commercials on the other channel. The breaks are all coordinated. It's the same with terrestrial radio. Occasionally there is a network that offsets it's programming by 5 minutes (I think TBS did this for a long time), but those usually don't last long, and revert to the standard of starting on the hour with breaks on the 10s.
It's no small feat the transcoding automation they must have built to take the mezzanine files that they get delivered to them and create the packages of multi-bitrate, DRM-wrapped files that the consumer eventually sees. There are only a handful (maybe only 3) of companies that can do this on any type of scale.

Is this common knowledge? I've never heard this before. Do you have a source?
Those are good points, but I would say that there can be just as much interpretation and "semantic" translation for a book, especially one heavy with dialogue. Outside of dialogue, metaphors and other "imagery" language is not easy to translate, and does not entail a simple word shift.
The latter part of ACs comment didn't warrant a response. I took it to be rhetorical and obviously sarcastic.
Well, it would be illegal for you to write a novel based closely on a film, yes.
Hehe... thanks. They outsource their sub origination and conforming, so it's likely that one of their vendors did this to cut costs. Competition has been fierce in this sector over the last few years with the onset of services like Netflix in non-English territories.
That's not a very substantive answer.
People can't use the subtitles as a stand alone work:
When I was in school, I read scripts of plays. Seems analogous to a script of a movie. I agree that there is definitely more value to having a visual performance as well as the script, but the script is not valueless, and I don't see why the creator/owner of that script should not have a copyright claim to it.
Just because somebody does something for free doesn't mean it has no (or little) cost.
