I still have a F-91W. Who wears watches, though?
People who don't want to dig out their phone and press a button to show the home screen every time they want to know the time?
In reality, their liberal MILITARY (mark that one in your record books, folks) was the crux.. but.. now they're gone.
They weren't unique that way. Egypt had the same thing going on; remember the Muslim Brotherhood won in popular elections after the Arab Spring revolution, and it was their military that had to step in and take over. Pakistan had something similar, years ago, with Musharraf and his military running the country to keep the government from being run by Islamists. Same thing with Iraq, sorta: they had Saddam running the place, with a strong military, and he more-or-less kept the peace between all the warring factions within. Same with Syria under Assad; before civil war, he kept the peace, but now different warring groups of Islamists want to take over or separate. Countries like that can't be run democratically; they need dictators or military cabals, otherwise they start resembling ISIS-land.
You're missing the point that the Turkish military are (comparatively) liberal, which is not the case with Egypt, Syria or Iraq.
I though it said "sheep".
The last bout of Man Flu I got I only emerged from bed to seek food and sometimes medication.
If you can still eat, it's not real Man Flu, it's just a cold.
Also, didn't you have to go to the bathroom?
Why is this on Slashdot? A computer website...
Slashdot's motto is"News for Nerds" and this does not refer purely to computer nerds. There were nerds before computers were even invented.
Some of the most profound discoveries have come from experiments verifying established knowledge, yielding unexpected results. Rutherford's discovery of the atomic nucleus resulted from just such an experiment.
Wow, he was experimenting with colds and sleep and he accidentally the atomic bomb?
Parents who let their children stay up late and don't make sure that they get enough sleep (Children need more sleep than adults do.) are just as much at fault, if not more so.
Absolutely agree that children need more sleep than adults. However, they are not necessarily able to fall asleep at the needed time to be ready for school. My parents sure as hell tried to get me to go to bed early, but I all I did after getting to bed is toss and turn for hours. I think a lot more children and adolescents are afflicted with delayed sleep phase disorder than we think.
Maybe, but it helps if you don't let them have TVs, iPads or mobile phones in their rooms when they go to bed...
As an adult, I have just had to learn that if I need to be up at 6 to go to work, I can't stay up until 3 and expect to feel anything but knackered all day.
I got sick three, maybe four times a year.
That sounds pretty standard to me if you're just talking about colds.
The laws they're breaking are themselves morally bankrupt, and therefore moral to break.
But you can't just allow everyone to choose which laws they think are moral to break, no doubt hitmen would think the laws against murder are unfair.
If you want a civilised society, laws have to apply to everyone equally. If they are bad laws, they need to be changed.
You don't speed, but you never exceed the limit by 10%. Guess what that extra 10% is... its speeding.
In the UK you're allowed 10% leeway due to the inaccuracy of speedometers.
And did you speed on your way into work this morning?
Even if he did and was caught, it would be a trivial offence compared to dealing smack to schoolkids doncha think?
