That's 3800 miles (6100 km) from where the plane was last seen. I wonder if they'll be able to figure out how far the plane flew and how far the debris drifted.
Nobody of any authority has even mentioned the death penalty. The US government hasn't executed anyone for crimes other than murder in 50 years.
I hope CmdrTaco buys it back for $250. God damn would that be funny.
If the government imposes content-based restrictions on speech as a condition of issuing a permit, that's unambiguous government censorship.
The Supreme Court ruled in 1977 that that's illegal.
I was active on Slashdot early on, and then recently came back. Can someone tell me what the hell happened to this site? Was there a specific event that made all of the smart people leave, or was it gradual? Or did some event cause thousands of idiots to start posting here?
Because this thread is amazing. It makes the comments at the bottom of a Fox News article seem rational and intelligent.
If you're going to tell that story, at least tell it right. They weren't "a threat" to British Petroleum. The government nationalized (aka stole) all of BP's assets in Iran. The British government was understandably displeased. This was at the height of the Cold War when people were freaking out about the spread of Communism. So the British government supported a coup, and their US allies helped them.

Tsirpas was the one who called the referendum last week, encouraged voters to vote "no" to the deal, which they overwhelmingly did, and then agreed to a worse deal days later. It's immensely more incompetent than anything you mentioned.
If those dumb cops just had the benefit of hindsight like we do, they would have known that the kid wasn't building bombs. They think they need to "investigate" things. Just read about it in the paper the next day.
they could have asked about the kid and found out the background.
But whenever the media asks a serial killer's neighbors about him, they always say "He was very polite and mostly kept to himself. We had no idea.".
Gov't "nationalizes" the building and gives away the apartments to peasants...? If you're the gov't, you don't care if some investor loses his shirt, you want useful stuff that you can give to the masses to keep them from overthrowing you.
The Chinese gov't doesn't define "assets" the same way as a Western banker would.
Giving away apartments in "ghost cities" doesn't solve anything. There are no jobs are supporting infrastructure.
And with a technocratic, authoritarian gov't, they have some leeway to take drastic measure that would be difficult if not impossible in a democracy.
Their latest authoritative decision is to forbid people who own more than 5% of a company's stock from selling for the next 6 months.
That's pretty insane. I can't see it going well.
you can't just pretend you don't have to cover certain parts of warfare.
The Air Force is well aware that dogfighting is still a possibility. That's why they built the F-22.
Because it has a sweet gun that makes a cool sound.
What is the name of a store that sells milk and bread and accepts payment in gold?
I was under the impression that the loss of atmosphere was extremely slow, and that any technology that could terraform the planet could easily keep pace with the loss.
I was just talking about keeping the cosmic rays from mutating people and breaking electronics.
