There's *always* work to be done. Employing additional cleaners / landscapers to keep facilities looking tidy is one that immediately comes to mind, and one that cannot be easily automated. "Peace officers" (unarmed cops) in neighborhoods to help keep crime down and give people directions. Additional secretaries in offices. Additional window people at post offices and the DMV to help speed lines. I would very much like unemployment insurance to be replaced with (intended to be temporary) low-skill government jobs.
Not necessarily. If 10 people are regular smokers, and the increased cost inspires 5 to quit, you are getting revenue from the other 5 while still reducing smoking.
Clearly you have never driven in a real city. If you leave enough space for someone to slam on the brakes suddenly, another car will move into the space you are leaving, and you'll have to slow down to drop back further, prompting people to pass you and take that newly vacated space. Eventually, you'll be getting a ticket for impeding the flow of traffic.
I am guessing where you live, either no one makes left turns at traffic lights, or they gun it the moment the light turns green before the opposite direction traffic has a chance to enter the intersection.
Since Japan is one of the most public transit connected / bike friendly countries in the world, the number of people who would need to use a personal motorized vehicle to get home from a bar is rather low.
Pretty much this. Though, I wouldn't say avenged so much as, the sheriff would do something about a well liked individual being murdered, and people would be cooperative in the investigation. But the guy who regularly takes a piss in the horse trough, spanks women as they walk by, and randomly shoots his gun spooking the horses in front of the saloon? Must've been hit by a stray bullet.
Actually yes. When being an asshole means sooner or later someone will shoot you (and no one will rat on the shooter), there's a lot fewer assholes around.
For a more modern example look at abortion laws. In my great state the politicians are too afraid to go one way or the other so they come up with bullshit like waiting times. In order for a woman to get an abortion she has to wait three days. No reason. She just has to. This is because someone couldn't get an anti abortion law passed so they settled for attempting to shame the woman into keeping the child with arbitrary regulations and rules.
Not to jump into the hornet's nest, but a three day wait is actually pretty reasonable. Some people might be pressured (by parents or the guy) and need a few days to realize they also have the right to choose life, and that there are groups out there that will help alleviate that pressure. There is also a not small number of women who feel they rushed into the decision and regretted it (either for moral reasons or for medical ones resulting from unexpected complications). If the woman is the type to be shamed out of it in three days, imagine if the shame came after it was too late to undo?
They have five day waits for firearms, a three day wait for something more controversial than the 2nd amendment shouldn't be too much to ask...
The only options would be Canada and Mexico followed by a land crossing, and I think we could get Canada to agree to a similar quarantine. At a US airport it doesn't matter how many countries you pass through beforehand, unless you've (illegally) ripped out the page from your passport that has the stamp for the country in question, or gotten some other country's immigration officer to cover it with a sticker, the evidence would easily spotted.
You cannot prevent an American citizen from returning home. However, a mandatory, no exceptions 60 day quarantine would have worked (60 days from departure of affected country).
Probably more an ancient Unix backend. My college for the longest time truncated the Unix passwords to the first 8 characters (both when setting and authenticating). We used to type in the first 8 letters carefully then type an additional 10 characters randomly to confuse shoulder surfers... this was still the case as late as 2008.
The problem is, using cash is "leaving money on the table" if you have credit cards with any sort of rewards program. Unless there is a cash discount, when you pay cash you are in essence subsidizing the credit card users.
That said, I will try to use cash at small busnesses / independent stores to help show support...
Meanwhile, the order is said to affect over 1,300 aircraft, and some airlines are baulking, since the problem has never been seen in operation, that the order presents "a high, and unnecessary, financial burden on operators"."
The new privacy features, announced two weeks ago by the California-based companies, will stymie investigations into crimes ranging from drug dealing to terrorism, law enforcement officials said.
“This is a very bad idea,” said, chief of the Washington Metropolitan Police Department, in an interview. Smartphone communication is “going to be the preferred method of the pedophile and the criminal. We are going to lose a lot of investigative opportunities.”"

The same way in my state it is illegal to charge extra for a credit card transaction, but not illegal to offer a discount for using cash. Thus, the "cash price" vs "credit price" at gas stations...
