I can't see shelling out $1500 for the privilege of what amounts to beta-testing Google Glass. Honestly, Google should be paying the testers, not the other way around. It's not like they're low on cash.
Obviously, instead of imprisoning any of the current executives (because we can't have that), the building manager will be thrown in prison, because clearly, it's his fault.
That's an astounding level of ignorance. Congratulations.
Ye flipping gods... I just went and looked at the beta site.
Whoever signed off on that design needs to have their head examined.
Yeah, Mickey Mouse will potentially enter the public domain in (I think) 2018. Because the terrorists win if that happens, look for Disney to push for another copyright extension either right after midterm elections this year, or after the 2016 elections.
Didn't the NSA just recently clam up about whether or not they were surveilling Congress?
Oh no! Phil Robertson was suspended from a TV show for nine days! The horror!
Right. Because No Such Agency would never be able to find a way to read data encrypted by an open source program. Why, that's a magical band-aid for everything!
I was under the impression that gasoline vapor ignites easily. Gasoline itself doesn't. (I mean, didn't Mythbusters try this in an episode? They tried to light a gas trail on fire with a lit cigarette, and it didn't work for beans...)
ALDI also charges a refundable fee for grocery cart use. It's a quarter to get a cart, and if you return the cart (don't leave it in the parking lot) you get your quarter back. Pretty smart move.
Because judges don't want to try and read briefs written in Wingdings because the plaintiff or defendant feels like being a jackass.
1) There are actually several homeless shelters in Columbia, SC.
2) If you're referring to that thing the city council passed a few months back, that shelter is about 10-12 miles outside Columbia city limits. I don't believe it's open yet, either. Certainly, the homeless people a couple blocks away from the Judicial Center (read: courthouse) don't seem to be worrying too much about it. Yet.
I could be very snarky and say that religion is the willing suspension of rational thinking. And I just did. (A talking burning bush? It must be God, it said so. It's not possibly a massive amount of hallucinogens.)
Someone get Scott Manley to figure it out using KSP.
One of the reasons I don't have a smart phone is that I don't have to charge my current phone every day. It's more like once a week. (Another of the reasons I don't have a smart phone is that I still have a 'dumb' phone that works fine. If/when it breaks, I'll think about moving to a smart phone, but I don't jump at getting new tech just because it comes out.)
