Its the least we can do for the billions the US spends on their Navy and Air force that patrols our Arctic.
True, and when you have a technologically advanced country with limited resources and population, being good at being covert is a serious asset.
Consider for a moment the historical reality of Canada's leadership in the Iran hostage crisis in 79/80.
Couldn't a pre-existing planet be captured by a new star? I can imagine a situation where a star going dark sends its planets drifting through deep space only to be captured again later.
Nobody has to change their behaviour because a cop told them to. The police don't happen to be right all the time. Sure, sometimes it will result in an arrest or court time, but its the judge's job to determine if you *actually* did anything wrong, not the cop's.
Troll much? Most programming languages are general purpose and once you know a half dozen, adding another is rarely that useful.
I tried learning LISP for its own sake and realized I had no actual use for it.
I love the idea of learning a language just to expand my programming vocabulary theoretically, but in practice its just dull.

I prefer ASSEMBLY to broken Makefiles
A school near us does this
Except that using the electricity is functionally equivalent to using the restroom these days. Everyone carries rechargable devices around with them. I frequently plug in wherever I see an outlet.
"Sir you're not welcome here, and I'll be forced to call the police if you don't leave."
Its not hard, and it doesn't require 911.
Poorly rated extension cords piss me off
Why do you believe a commercial building has regular household outlets on the outside?
How often do you really drive only 8 miles?
For this very reason we enforce real IPSec for VPN traffic and GPG/PGP for file transfers with clients and service providers whenever possible.
Sadly, banks seem to be the ones who aren't paying attention, but several of our largest customers only handle data GPG encrypted.
Its worth noting that after sending a user a GPG-encrypted file (symmetric) with the instructions to install and run GPG (including a phone call for me to read them the key I used out of band), they end up often adopting it themselves because its really not hard to use very good quality encryption.
