Presumably there are lots of non-lego parts. I really doubt he could build an air tank out of legos. I am a little interested in if lots of smaller components could be used to make it smoother or if that would cause other pressure issues. Obviously it would be more parts that could break, but it might have benefits.
True, that does happen with many consumer products - when a new version is going to be cheaper soon, they'll hold off on purchasing.
That's really irrelevant though as the discussion was if "deflation would be good for a while". With deflation, it's difficult to get people to spend money because the "something valuable" will be cheaper if they buy it later. Keeping the inflation rate at around 0 is a viable alternative.
Deflation causes people to hoard their money because it's basically an investment to keep it. That's not something that helps the economy (need them to spend money). Of course the poor are exempt from all that.
The US Government sold all of its GM stock.
My TV (2010 Samsung) has the episode guide and schedule of the channels, but the software is glitchy and the UI get really slow the more it's used (until the TV is rebooted).
But illegal handguns were at one time legal.
People thinking about public opinion and their legacy?
But illegal handguns don't magically appear out of thin air...
It's worth noting that not all LEDs provide good light output. I tested a bunch of them that my parents were trying out and some friends, including a few "natural light" varieties, and only a couple of them turned out to be similar to sunlight. Used a homemade spectrometer (chunk of DVD in a box with a webcam) to see the breakdown in light - most have a huge spike in the blue range, the best were nice and even across all the colors.
The alternatives actually work out cheaper because they last longer and save electricity. It's a larger up front investment, but cheaper over a few years.
It's better in that it stays out of the way a bit more - it updates with Windows Update and doesn't require registration.
That's a dubious map - where is the data from? It's not like we have regular IQ tests for citizens. Usually they're based on student test scores.
They have them at home, but carrying them is highly restricted and ammo is well regulated. The Swiss aren't carrying around handguns like in the US.
You wouldn't expect the violent crime to drop off instantly unless they had a large gun recovery program to get them out of the hands of criminals. The guns were already out there. Looking a bit farther than 5 years (there was a large spike in crime 5 years after), the crime rate dropped to a 40 year low.
