Most large companies outsource their transport to JB Hunt, Schneider, etc. Sure, the big letters say 'WalMart', but in smaller, DOT minimum sized font, it often has another name.

Would it kill you to explain even vaguely what this thing does in the summary?

In a lot of countries, it's legal for kids to drink at 16
In the UK, it's legal for kids to drink at 5, and it's perfectly legal to give 5 year olds alcohol too. They can drink in a pub if having a meal at 16, at 18 there are no restrictions.
AC GP's link does not cherry pick. If you look at the relevant graph, teenage suicide has remained relatively stable over the last 15 years. The only age group that has seen significant rises in the last 15 years is the 45-64 year old category.
One of the problems is that being able to hack into anyone's accounts is not a preserve of the intelligence agencies. Other people do, and will do it all the time.
I like my Western, secular democracy too.
Which limits exactly should our government respect, and which should they not?
I gave Microsoft about £100 8 years ago for this PC I'm writing on's operating system. Now, you can claim I'm stupid and clueless enough to have paid that money if you like, but you'll have to show me how I would have played all the games that I have done since without having bought the operating system.
Make that 8 years ago.
What's wrong with Windows 7 that makes you want to upgrade?
I'm still running Vista, with (mostly) the same hardware I bought this system with literally 10 years ago. Directx11, stability measured by power cuts, simple to run.
I'm still waiting on my free upgrade from Vista.
However, I'm one of the few who liked Vista, and still run it (on the system I bought it with, a core 2 duo E6850, XFX 650i motherboard, and a brand new (old) gtx 470 graphics card I got off ebay for £29).
Weird, I've never seen it with an S in there, only as LOC and xK LOC. I though maybe it was something different than the LOC counts I'd seen before. Of course, I've never dealt with projects that were in the millions either, so maybe that's why I've never heard the S variations.
As soon as I can get my DSLR out of its case!
Let's take the simplest of all the detection problems. How many lines of code does it take to reliably and safely detect the lane markings of a road? Nobody knows, because nobody has done it yet. Yes, there are prototypes that can handle some sub sets of all cases. The best I've seen handles 90% of the cases. That takes 1 MSLOC and still counting.
What's an emslock?
Inertia mainly - I stopped writing JEs regularly, and lost the drive to write them. Not sure what (if anything) would kick me back into any kind of regularity on them again. Though I suppose once every 18 months isn't too aggressive of a schedule to shoot for!
