Fascinating new insights, indeed! Unfortunately, all attempts at verifying these "insights" failed, except when complete morons were used as experimenters.
Apology accepted. Your 3) is spot on and there is also serious pressure from those pushing for even more surveillance. They do not even publish statistics of how many producers they have stopped here, likely because the number is so low.
You can kill, but you cannot torture. Blinding somebody for life intentionally is cruel and hence unacceptable. Not that such distinctions are understood in the US.
Really. A printer belongs behind a firewall and has no business having a public IP in the first place. This is neither a new risk not in any way surprising. Asking the manufacturer to secure the printer is not going to work.
I believe in not crafting logical progressions based on invalid premises.
"Since X, therefore Y" when X is an unknown is unsound. You could perhaps say "probably", and pay respect to the fact that a lot of the knowledge we have is based on assumptions.
That actually makes sense.
"We might stop worshiping veterans and start questioning if all the wars we're in are necessary "
1. It is respecting veterans. They do not decide which wars are just and which are not the voters and elected officials do.
Maybe but isn't a great thing that we have a peace loving president in the Whitehouse.....
I can shoot you in the head and kill you but I can not just intentionally blind you?
Actually it seems like a simple enough technical problem. When you go to fire the first burst is a range finder burst and then you set the power for the range. Of course this would all be done by the weapon and not the user.
"ad hominem" is not always a logical fallacy if the person expressing the opinion is some how has value added to because of position or expertise and is applicable when issues involving morality or ethics.
Musician that posts material that is offensive to a large segment of the population complains about the , tastefulness, morality and or ethics of getting a free album from popular band. That does seem to fit a valid use for an ad hominem based reply.
What negative social actions has U2 done?
It would be more like what if George Strait album showed up on my phone. A musical act that I do not really like but has done nothing extremely annoying or offensive.
I would just delete it and by on my way.
Put them on YouTube, DropBox and so on.
Thanks for giving an example of functional illiteracy. It is one of the problems people relying too much on computers have.
If you try really, really hard and read my statement again several times, you might notice that I actually said that pen, paper and books are technology, but that they are enough technology for learning.
Well, then in your area of the world, things are different than in most. "Low hanging fruits" and all that. Cops cannot do things right if they get orders to produce as many visible results as possible and orders to stay away from things that are hard but would actually help people. I am of course talking about the higher ups giving the orders (and bowing to politics more often than not), not the ones doing the actual work. I do not doubt that many of them would prioritize exactly as you say, but they have to follow orders.
From one of the best universities on the planet in that area? No way. Give up, you are entirely outclassed.
