This one stands, I had to deal with it as an insurance agent explaining why a company had vehicles in California with Arizona plates -- the reason being that they couldn't register them in California until they had 7500 miles on them.
Some states (I only know SPECIFICALLY of California, but I have heard of this being a problem elsewhere) prohibit the buying of NEW out-of-state vehicles, even ones that pass all emissions standards and such. California prevents registering any out-of-state vehicle with less than 7500 miles on it, meaning the only way you can bring in an out-of-state car is to register it somewhere else (good luck with that if you live in California) until it's officially a used car.
On the other hand, this screws California out of the sales taxes, because by the time the car is brought in, it's specifically NOT a new car.
Relatively speaking, yes. If it had failed to land softly and had instead cratered, that'd just be an epic fail. If it had blown up on the launch pad, that would be a complete embarrassment. If it had failed to phone home at all, that would be a different type of fail. As it is, they got it there in one piece and deployed it and proved that it worked. It just didn't KEEP working, which is hopefully a solvable problem. This means it makes sense to send up bigger, more expensive missions, which might not have seemed justified had the failure been at some previous stage. It succeeded in proving they've got the basics in place. There was only so much actual science to be done with a tiny rover, so the fact that it was unable to complete the mission is less important in this particular case.
If it's still in active development, then the upgrades and expansions get fresh copyright protection. If the copyright term was 15 years, and he's still working on it after 15 years, then all that would fall into the public domain would be the FIRST version of the program -- not the program as it stands now.
It's just a disfunctional Chrome with Opera branding now.
It died when they abandoned their own codebase.
This is why I never upgraded from the 12.x series. Once that stopped working on a variety of sites (namely Mega, and incomplete support for Google Docs), I moved back to Firefox (via Pale Moon -- for some reason my system doesn't like 32-bit Firefox but 64-bit is just fine).
Stripping out Bookmarks functionality and then not replacing it for three straight releases was when I knew the Opera goose was well and truly cooked.
Or French Zeuhl bands.
Christian Vander's drumming might be a reliable source of power though, and he's been able to do it for over 40 years.

A bit of clarification -- it's not the yeast, it's contamination of the grain itself by streptomyces. It would have also led to (much lower) levels in unfermented products like bread or gruel, but fermentation let the production increase tremendously.
Yes, if I realized that I would be dead either way in such an assault, I would not try to kill my assaulter and drag them into death with me. Life is too precious a thing for questionable fucks like you to cheapen it.
I would. I don't trust the universe to deliver karma. Sometimes it takes direct action. If killing my assailant means they are no longer capable of killing someone else, that justifies it as far as I'm concerned.
Smokeless powder is largely unregulated, as it is considered obsolete. Casting your own bullets from lead ingots is a cinch. While smokeless powder doesn't pack the same punch as the powder used in modern cartridges, it's still quite capable of inflicting lethal injury. You'd just have to get your hands on the brass and the primer. Or, make yourself a black powder revolver and skip the cartridges. It would be extremely slow to reload, but just as fast as a modern revolver for however many shots you equip it with.
An all-liquid formulation is probably the most worthy of these goals, for increasing energy density still further without losing the seriously impressive power density and charge rate of LFP batteries. The voltage will also be a factor in some devices -- already many devices can be powered by single cells, simplifying charge circuits (no need for balancing or detecting a failing cell) and possibly improving reliability (since one failed cell = a dead pack).
1 + 1 = 3
This is a correct answer. Do you know why?
It was calculated in Excel?
They need to get a snake grip on this before it mushrooms.
If someone has a gun to your head, do you keep your mouth shut and live, or do you mouth off, get your brains blown out, and wind up never able to talk about *anything* again?
Say "what" again! Say! "what"! again! I dare you! I double-dare you, motherfucker! Say "what" one more goddamn time!
It depends a whole lot on how calm you can stay under the pressure.
