If the NSA were going to create a TOR substitute, wouldn't this be how they would want to describe it?
"Are you paid by the hour? If yes, what the actual fuck are you thinking?"
Perhaps he is thinking he can get a week's worth of work done in 2 hours. Assuming he didn't bother telling anyone about his new technique, he can now go play golf or nap the rest of the week while the boss thinks he is "hard at work".
"It's highly expensive for a single serving after all."
Like that stops anyone. Ever heard of Starbucks? As an alternative, Keurig is an absolute bargain.
Who uses bullets "on a daily or almost daily basis"?
Ever heard of john the ripper and the 50 other password crackers that are free to download?
You eventually have to move. You don't HAVE to have an iPhone. Many of us survived decades without one.
Can I then say that an app led me to make bad decisions and I am no longer responsible?
I'm sorry that I drank 2 bottles of whiskey and ran over that family of 4, judge. That free app I downloaded said it would be ok.
"surrendering our ability to truly communicate privately and securely "
Ever heard of talking in person? They can't ever take that away.
Yay for you. You were so smart reading, writing, and doing long division at kindergarten age. If only everyone else was so brilliant.
The reality is, many parents don't have those basic skills. And many more don't have the skills to teach that knowledge. Does that make them bad people? Does it matter? Should their kids be taken away from them for not (or not being able to) teach a 5 year old long multiplication (???)? I would say not. They should be giving a chance to learn basic skills needed in society even if their parents are incompetent, lazy, idiots, or god forbid, can't code. Otherwise, they will be out on the streets when they are older begging for change, selling pencils, or sticking a knife in your kidney and grabbing your wallet.
Its not natural or obvious how to use the three seashells. School is there to teach that.
Eventually, they may have to move anyway. They will either pay $10/gallon for water there, or move elsewhere where it is $0.005 a gallon. There won't be any jobs or businesses if water is unavailable or too expensive. Then, southern CA will go the way of Detroit.
"our aquifers, which take thousands of years to build up"
A few decades of missing water is not going to affect a process that takes millennia to happen
The ability to make a clear plastic door could be handy, except you said it "came loose, feel on the floor, and cracked beyond repair". How would you take a picture of that to create a replica? Or would you take a picture before you break any/every random object in your life?
If they are police and not librarians, how would they know what question to ask and what the correct answer would be that only a librarian would know? And even if they had that prepared ahead of time, what if the original call came from a hospital, or a Best Buy, or Taco Bell? Should they ask what are the ingredients in a Nacho Bell Grande? Then when the terrorists get it wrong, they will know to go in guns a blazing!
Or you could just back in where you park. Then they can't easily take a picture of you when they drive by.
*That only works in starts where you aren't required to have front license plates.
Why can't we have land locked drones? Then we have the best of both worlds.
