I'm sure they had shore leaves, and had to be replenished with food, and that even when on patrol the boat surfaced occasionally for the crew to get some sun.

Still, US (not sure about British) ballistic missiles *do* go out for as much as 90 days at a time (without, as I understand it, shore leave), so your point is valid.

"Has started" means it just began


"almost available" means that it is almost done


for most things, such as developing (a buzz-word rich software product), those two are mutually exclusive.

Steaming crock of shit. (How much software have _you_ actually developed? Nothing that's non-trivial gets done that quick.)

Likewise, Axe is a thief for selling boys on the idea that spraying themselves will make babes throw themselves at said stinky young men, and Pantene is a thief for selling women on the idea that using their brand of shampoo will make them supermodels.

Or... gurps_npc is a socialist idiot who doesn't know how humans are actually motivated.

It's with the conservative authoritarians who want to expand the power of the police.

There are damned few in power -- no matter their stripe -- that want to reduce their power. It's just a matter of where they focus their expansion of power. (Liberals naturally say, "but we know best, and that's why government -- with us at the head -- *needs* to expand". Besides, how many Democrats voted against the PATRIOT Act or to defund the NSA?)

How she's not been reported to her state's medical board is beyond me.

This is why:
The Faculty of Medicine and the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto seek a Director to lead their new interdisciplinary program in complementary and integrative medicine

This plus ISIS plus "crystal power" plus conservative Christianity (note the commonalities between them?) is a sure sign that the end of the modern word is soon at hand. I grieve for my children and their (not yet) children.

Her interest in health and assisting her patients take control of their own health began with her work in the Womenâ(TM)s Self Help Health Movement.

But the AAEM is not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, and is mentioned in Quackwatch.

Help! I'm trapped in a PDP 11/70!
