We definitely don't translate names like "Abdullah" to "Abdugod."
Because that would be translating only half the name. If you want to be correct, Abdullah would translate to "servant of God". You wouldn't translate the last name "Godwin" to "Allahwin", would you?
won't need to be on the grid here
Don't worry, they'll almost certainly add being connected to the grid to be a mandatory part of the housing code or something.
The local trash monopoly did something similar. Trash service is about $60 a month,
That alone is ridiculous. Where I live, I pay about $9.50 a month, and that includes trash, recyclables, and lawn clippings within reason.
I actually suspect that the majority of life - and intelligent life - in the universe is probably ocean-based. If ever space aliens visit us, unlike the movies, I suspect their spaceships may be more likely to be like sealed aquariums than an air-breathing setup. I've never seen this idea reflected in science fiction though.
In the later books of the Lost Fleet series, they come across an alien race that is aquatic, with ships that are much more maneuverable than human ships. They theorized that the ships were in fact filled with water which allowed them to make more radical movements.
I am filled with a deep sense of schadenfreude as I watch the US drive itself into the ground.
At some point the Republicans and Democrats got the strange idea in their heads that the last party in charge before the country collapses wins.
I am unimpressed. Call me when they tied the detectors into a system that mag-locks the doors and windows shut to confine the shooter in one location.
Sucks to be the students and teacher in the same room as the shooter when that happens.
When, exactly, did Vader ever see either of the droids in the original trilogy?
C3PO was in the bag on the back of Chewbacca while Vader and Boba Fett were having Solo frozen in carbonite in Cloud City. So Vader saw him there. And could possibly have seen him in A New Hope after Ben died. Seeing as how C3PO is apparently the only gold protocol droid in the galaxy, Vader would have recognized him easily.

I dont think Ebola has any effect on bacteria
And, it's not like you can opt out
...if you have a phone with Wi-Fi enabled
You could always just, you know, turn off wifi on your phone.
You can go through life with just vocational training an certification with a nice paying job. Just keep in mind you will be the first to get axed and vs the low experienced degree'd person.
I work with people making over 50K a year, 40 hours a week, available overtime, 4-5 weeks paid vacation, annual profit sharing, and fairly regular raises, and best of all job security, all with only requiring a high school degree. To me that sounds a lot better than making 60-70k while working 50+ hours a week and not knowing when your job is going to be outsourced and finding yourself unemployed.
If you want job security, manual labor is exactly what you want. Plumbing, mechanic, welding, etc; all of these are jobs that require people on site, and require levels of competence and skill that preclude both offshoring and outsourcing. Managers with an MBA are a dime a dozen. A skilled mechanic with an A&P is a lot harder to replace.
The people you're talking about go through a ton of screening before being allowed onto an aircraft.
As someone who works at an airport, no, they don't.
I bet Vladimir Putin isn't man enough to leave next month and travel to the moon, then plant the Russian flag on the surface of it.
Wouldn't work. When they show the picture of him planting that flag on the moon while not wearing a shirt everyone will know it was photoshopped.
