Is the TSA kidnapping people now also?
I remember when a co-worker ported a program from Windows to the Mac a few years ago. He had the problem that it made the Mac hibernate every time the program was run.
It took a while to find out why... the answer was that his code had called "Sleep()" with a capital S instead of "sleep()". Apparently, elevated privileges were not required to make the computer go to sleep.
4.3 million SEK is probably a large portion of the movie's total revenue, if not surprassing what it has already made.
It was made for ad-funded free TV for Chris's sake
It got low reviews from critics, and the series was already a trite.
Would filesharing it at low quality really degrade it's quality? Sorry, but you can't polish a turd.
(No offence to my cousin's husband who plays the lead in this movie. He's got to eat too...)
In Sweden, forfeiting pets in illegal, but has been done anyway...
Forfeting homes happens all the time, even though there is a severe shortage of apartments for rent.
When I went to primary school back in the '80s, there was a bomb threat almost every year around exam time at the beginning of summer.
Like Chrome, but does not phone home to Google.
Does the D in DHS stand for douchebag?
Bah. You are over-analysing. "Windows" is a crap brand, plain and simple, and that is both Microsoft's fault and Microsoft's fault that they don't realize it.
Normal users associate "Windows" with work, malware, slow computers (because of malware, or the software installed to combat malware) and annoying popups (not just malware, but Windows itself: Sticky keys, "You have unused icons on your desktop", etc.)
When people see a "Windows Phone", they think "do I have to install antivirus on it", not "oh, this is something that I am going to love".
I think that Microsoft should have used the name Metro, (which is what the touch-screen interface was called before it was renamed "Modern".):
"Metro-phone", "Metro-tablet". "Metro-app in a window on the MS Windows desktop" etc.
On computers with different screen sizes and aspect ratios, you can not compare just pixel size.
1920Ã--1080 is low resolution if your screen is 50" 16:9, like a modern TV.
If your screen is 13", then 1920Ã--1080 has a resolution of 169.5 pixels per inch, which isn't that bad.
For a desktop computer's screen, I would say that 100-110 PPI is the "sweet spot" for using most applications without any screen scaling. For a laptop you often have the screen closer to your eyes, so you would want a somewhat higher resolution.
They will just substitute the meat for fish. This is Norway after all - Norwegians were raised on fish.
Actually, modern Westerners eat a lot more meat these days than we used to. We eat twice as much meat now as we did in the 1980's!
Did people revolt in the 1980's because they did not get enough meat?
Even in the 1980's the average Westerner ate a lot more meat than humans has done ever throughout human history. So
Actually it is not farting, but burping. Cows are ruminants.
They also grow slowly compared to pigs and chickens, which means that they burp a lot during their life time.
Sheep are ruminants too, making mutton just as bad from a climate standpoint as beef.
Then there is cow-dung, which if not used properly (as fertilizer or fuel) will release unnecessary nitrous oxide into the atmosphere
I don't have that many numbers, but I estimate that an average Norwegian would reduce his carbon footprint by around 1% by having meat-free Mondays.
Mind you that the average Norwegian's carbon footprint is relatively large to begin with, about twice as high as a citizen of Sweden (Norway's nearest neighbour).
If a Norwegian reduced his other emissions to that of a Swede, then the saving of going Vegetarian would be 15%, and that is significant.
You don't know much about Norway then... Norway has always been big on fishing, relative to their small population.
In recent decades they have become big in fish farming.
It is the higher intake of land-animal protein in the last hundred years that is the anomaly in the big picture, not the recent introduction of "meat-free Mondays".
Also, beans don't have to be imported. There are varieties of beans and peas and other plants that contain protein that grow just fine in Norway.
I have friends in the R2 Builder's Club that have pressured me into building one.
It would be cool, but I don't have the time or space for the build. Too many projects already...
I think that the fear at the top has come from the realisation that the way the US works is unsustainable in the long term. I am thinking primarily of the debt-based economy that is based on economic growth to function, the large dependence on oil and the effects of global warming becoming more apparent.
These are smart people. They understand that change from post-WWII model is inevitable and that this change may not come easy.
There is a large probability of future social unrest, riots and organised armed resistance against the ruling caste, so they do what they think is necessary for them to retain control of the country in the future. This is what I think is the real reason behind the de-democratisation of USA.
