Yes. Follow the link.
I think the increasing use of tl:dr is people just learning what it means. Before they would just skip over the article/comment/etc, now they feel the need to use this new snarky comment they learned.
Based on recent experiences, I doubt the DMV has been doing anything this advanced.~
My dad used to love taking the power cord from the computer during summer vacation to try and keep me off of it. What he didn't know was the TV used the same kind of cord, so it was pretty easy to swap them out while he was at work.
When he figured out what I was doing, he took that power cord away as well. I guess he really expected me to play outside all day.
Poor guy never found the spare power cord that I kept in my room.
It stops being a compassionate act when we're forced to do it by government.
It's not a compassionate act on your part, but it's still a compassionate act by the government.
I don't think that any reasonable person, or even most of slashdot, considers a skeptic a bad person. It's people who post crap without any evidence to back their claim that are a problem.
If you say you believe in global warming... sorry, climate change... because random news caster told you to believe it, you're no better than the one that doesn't believe it because random news caster told you it's fake.
I don't care if you're left or right health care 'reform' was one of Obama's main election platforms so I think ObamaCare is a fitting term.
True, but it still marks GP as a right-winger who wants to give it a bad name. Saying "ObamaCare" makes it sound like it's his pet project. It doesn't sound as positive as health care reform or something along those lines.
But I do agree with you. The US isn't as bad for internet connections as a lot of us make it out to be. There is a lot of room for improvement, though.
...Also why do they have to make roads out of them.. where did that come from? Just put them out on land somewhere, you don't have to drive all over them.
This was my first thought too. Making the solar panels into roads (or vice versa) is compounding the problem. Just put the 25,000 mi^2 of solar panels in the middle of the desert and call it even. Adding a layer of glass or some sort of protective surface is going to lessen the efficiency and raise the cost of production and maintenance. I'm all about green energy, but there are better places we could be spending our money and energy.
