Yeah, too bad Obama publicly (snip) stated that he wants a federal police force that answers only to him.
Okay, so I may be reading this wrong, but...
The FBI is a police force, tasked with upholding the laws of the Federal government. They have badges, guns, the whole thing. They are a part of the Department of Justice (or were, anyway), and are now part of the DHS. This is a Federal agency that takes its power from the Executive branch. That is to say, the Office of the President. They don't report directly to him on a day to day basis...but their director does report to the director of DHS, who does report directly to the POTUS.
You know him, the AUTHOR of the DECELERATION OF INDEPENDENCE.
I know our liberties aren't what they used to be, and I thought that they were eroding faster than ever, but I'm definitely going to start calling them the deceleration of Independence.
Trusting authority hasn't become only a logical fallacy. It's become a statistical one. Authorities lie too often to place much trust in someone merely because he's a well known authority.
But one of the top 10 web sites on the Internet has the explicit mission of summarizing authority. A source such as the fake Elsevier journal can show itself to be unreliable, but a new journal published by Elsevier can rise to a perception of reliability based on those journals published by Elsevier that aren't fake. But a source needs a publisher to take a chance on it in the first place. It's like a credit history: you have to have a bank take a chance on you in order to build up a reputation of reliability.
Bleach is the nuke that people who are serious about killing bacteria use to clean their counters with. Antibacterial cleaners are the things the amateurs at home use.
If you can satisfy the pros that they don't need to use bleach on their counters then the only remaining reason for anyone to use an antibacterial cleaner on his counter at home is superstition.
One potential risk is you'd start out this way and find yourself gradually expanding to take on the same roles as a traditional publisher, either because your clients ask for it or because there's profit in it, until you're just like all the others. (Just ask my former boss, who bought the web half of a print/web design company, and now spends most of her time on print materials like annual reports, just like the company she split off from used to.)
By this definition isn't plastic "a highly viscous liquid" as well
"What're ya gonna keep it in?"
In a magnetic field, as is done with plasma.
The variable sized / changing position of the virtual keyboard seems like a bad idea to me. I wonder how accurate the demo video is meant to be.
one of the main arguments was that we could use the never-working sysrq+blahblha combination to do the same thing..
