She should have an English page and then a French page on which all the prices are elevated slightly. When asked why there's a difference, she can say it costs more to translate and host more content, thereby increasing her cost of doing business.
If by good you mean "for the common good" then yes, I'd agree. I would say they do great work with a terrible purpose.
You're my hero.
When I bought the car in 2005 there weren't a hell of a lot of used hybrids. The Toyota dealer had a waiting list for a Prius and I needed a car ASAP so I went to the Honda dealer. My father sells cars and he always says to buy "used" car because the resale value of the vehicle drops significantly by basically driving it off the lot. Either way, in CA you pretty much need a car, though I did manage to bike to work a few times, it's not something I'd like to do every day - I'm not Lance Armstrong.
From one of the linked articles, "Translation: The kinds of people who buy Toyota Prius hybrids in the U.S. may indulge themselves in private, where no one else will see them, but want to be seen in public with less luxurious, greener products to bolster their reputation."
I call bullshit. I didn't do it to bolster my reputation. I put my money where my mouth is and instead of getting on a soapbox and telling everyone to go out and buy a hybrid, I actually bought one.
I don't care that I probably spent more than I'll recoup from the fuel-efficiency. For me, it wasn't about that.
Not that I believe AT&T has no problems, because it absolutely does. But I figure I use my iPhone more for data services than phone calls anyway and that's one of AT&T's strong areas. But at least I'm not giving my money to Verizon no matter how good their coverage is -- they're basically jackasses.
I most certainly can. Time slows down as your approach the speed of light. This is very well-understood by relativistic effects. Where an hour passes for you, a minute may pass for me depending on how fast I am going relative to the speed of light. So while one day may pass for me, I may effectively jump 100 years into the future. Einstein wasn't kidding when he said all of this stuff.
