All the engineering in a car isn't just to make something that is light and moves fast. Slap a rocket on a small frame and you can go fast. It is a tradeoff between performance, safety, reliability, cost, features, efficiency, legality, and design. This thing looks like something that some mech-E students threw together as a senior project, not an actual thing that people could use. They make a big deal out of using 3D printed parts, but then they come up with a design that doesn't take advantage of any of the features of 3D printing, like the ability to make complex internal honeycombed shapes.
Parent modded troll?
Some algorithm reassigned the url and they can't change it? Sounds like bullshit. Google reassigned it for a reason... perhaps Lush Cosmetics paid them or something.
What are you talking about? The whole point of money in elections is to pay the media to advertize for you. The media don't pick the winner. They sell the winner.
But how will people strategically vote if they don't know what other people are voting for?
I wouldn't say that the civil rights acts are about increasing freedom, but rather increasing equality and justice. Sometimes it is necessary to sacrifice some freedom to increase equality and justice. This is a good thing, but let's not contort the term freedom too much.
_Every_ action impinges upon the freedom of others. The question is, how much is allowable?. And it's not a black and white question.
While I'm all in favor for getting people to work to support themselves, Republicans have been working hard to make it not worth it to work, by killing minimum wage increases, encouraging outsourcing, and generally constructing a rent economy where people make (far!) more money by owning things than by doing actual work.
But can you perform a skype interview?
Any time there's an error, just skip it and go to the next instruction.
Bam. No more errors.
One could argue that the moon is made of cheese. What do scientists say?
You ought to be able to buy it from a chemical supply company. Just not labeled as food.
The difference between partially hydrogenated oil and your other examples (with the possible exception of fast food) is that it is basically masquerading as food, which is supposed to be good for you. Everybody knows that cigarettes are bad for you (thanks to govt. efforts), so you can blame it on a smoker's poor decision making to smoke. Putting partially hydrogenated oil in food and marketing it as food is more akin to poisoning people, since the final product looks like food and is passed off as food. The consumer still bears some blame, since such products are usually labeled, but even then some products are not fully labeled (a piece of bread from a bakery, etc) and some labels are outright disingenuous (0g trans fat).
If you wanna go all out free market liassez faire shut down the FDA, are you prepared to deal with straight up poisoned food in the market. Because that's what we are talking about here. Trans fat = poison, literally. Let's just put some hexane in this oil since it's cheaper to extract. Also, let's get rid of required labeling. Caveat emptor.
That's a problem that marketing can solve. Tell them it's rapidly biodegradable.
Usually what happens is you set up your own modem and they end up charging you a rental fee anyways. You call the service rep and they tell you to restart your computer to solve the problem.
