These creatures take to land like a fish takes to water.
"Smile for the camera, sir!"
How about a rule that after n years, they must either hand it over to the proper storage facility, or grind it up and airdrop it over the idiots who keep preventing anyone from building a proper storage facility.
Mafia owned companies are some of the best run and most customer friendly. They are in it for the long haul, not to just make a quick buck.

That's complete horseshit (along with this article). It's like saying math is a subset of CS because nearly all maths will be calculated by CS.
Stats is orthogonal to CS. You don't need one to do the other.
Having both though can give you a skill set that's quite useful.
I bet everyone ignores the fact that the best-supported Intelligent Design theory is the one where the Intelligent Designer is the laws of nature. None of the other versions make any predictions, only offer explanations (because they can never say that this is how the designer must have done things.)
My pet peeve is people who think science is about "truth" or "explanation", when it really is about prediction. Something that gives the best "explanations" is the worst scientifically since things with the most explanatory power have the least predictive power.
Extreme libertarianism is currently the law of the land in Darfur and Afghanistan. It's not working out well for those places.
Kind of hard to claim its libertarian if you can be put to death for rejecting Islam.
Extreme Capitalism was the law of the land in America before early in the 20th century. It didn't work well for America.
Were they buying and selling laws on the open market? If not, then it wasn't extreme capitalism.
Extreme Socialism would be, what, communism? We tried communism in a few places and yeah, it didn't work very well, but better than maybe I would have predicted.
Communism would be one form of extreme socialism, however it was never tried. (Not to be confused with people claiming it was tried)
It's not even really the donors, per se, but their voters. Climate change denialism is very popular. The businesses ensure that candidates who favor them connect with those voters, but it's not like the candidate would suddenly change their mind if those donations dried up. They'd continue to be denialists. And if that politician leaves, the denialist voters will be sure to pick up another denialist candidate.
The business help ensure denialism not with the politicians, but by funding denialist news networks and web sites. They also run attack ads (on any subject, not just climate) to defeat candidates who would oppose denialism.
They don't need to buy politicians. They buy voters instead, by scaring them. You won't fix the candidates, who are just doing what their constituents (at least, 50%+1 of them) want. The direct donations are a pittance. It's the overall miasma of denialism that give us anti-intellectual politicians, not the other way around.
I've got no idea how to fix it. It's famously said that you can't fix stupid, and there's a LOT of stupid.
Quoting a work of fiction doesn't make your point unless your point applies only within that world.
Unless, of course, you think we can solve global warming by reversing the polarity of the neutron flow (or perhaps Gandalf can just not let any IR photons pass, if you prefer fantasy solutions over scifi ones).
Sorry, old Unix guy here. My first reaction was "What the F is pkexec and why is it running setuid?"
Yet another way to execute arbitrary privileged executables is yet another potential security hole. This dumb thing is apparently part of the "Free Desktop" but it's depended on by all kinds of stuff including the fricking RedHat power management. What's wrong with plain old sudo?
Bullshit. Limiting the supply of cars is just another way to prop up the taxi cartels.
Placing and canceling orders with the objective of disrupting a competitor's business? Yeah, that's wrong. Lyft could easily adopt the countermeasure of charging for cancellations, and requiring a legit user to identify themselves to request a refund.
