Exactly! Take an old 7-8 year old Pentium dual core 3.40 GHz or similar, get a video card with HDMI, and wireless mouse, and run XBMC or VLC and save money by buying a dumb TV.

Lewis v. United States, 680 F.2d 1239 (1982)
Plaintiff, who was injured by vehicle owned and operated by a federal reserve bank, brought action alleging jurisdiction under the Federal Tort Claims Act. The United States District Court for the Central District of California, David W. Williams, J., dismissed holding that federal reserve bank was not a federal agency within meaning of Act and that the court therefore lacked subject-matter jurisdiction. Appeal was taken. The Court of Appeals, Poole, Circuit Judge, held that federal reserve banks are not federal instrumentalities for purposes of the Act, but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations.
Federal reserve banks are not federal instrumentalities for purposes of a Federal Tort Claims Act, but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations in light of fact that direct supervision and control of each bank is exercised by board of directors, federal reserve banks, though heavily regulated, are locally controlled by their member banks, banks are listed neither as "wholly owned" government corporations nor as "mixed ownership" corporations; federal reserve banks receive no appropriated funds from Congress and the banks are empowered to sue and be sued in their own names. . . .
Was this regulation only written for federal lands, dockyards, forts and buildings over which the Federal goverment has exclusive jurisdiction, or have they included specific language to say that it also applies in States of the Union? Were they saving ink when they failed to list the names of the 50 states in the definitions section?
In Moscow, after you go through the back-scatter machine, there is an attractive middle-aged blonde lady who uses her hands to touch the suspicious areas. I didn't even begin to think about complaining about this treatment. For some reason I fantasize about taping my spare kopecks to strategic locations on my body
butting out of how violent the video games are? Video games are a fantasy for blowing off steam.
I like to think that when the elevator doesn't show signs of coming to my floor, and I repeatedly push the button, that someone on a different floor and moving too slowly is caught in the doors
I love when I see third world people push the down button when they want to go up!
Every day, 100 foot wooden dhows travel between Iran and Dubai, UAE. Some carry horses and cars. Dubai's electronic stores are filled with Apple products. You do the math.
This engine uses a scotch yoke mechanism to take capture the energy of gasoline in an engine that is intentionally detonating. I toured Denner's lab back in the 90's.
I guess the solution is to take a tablet or netbook and tape it to the dashboard:)
Violent gaming can provide a therapeutic release of anger that can benefit the players in real-life. Whenever a government blocks an activity that releases a tension, such as the gaming or prostitution, then statistics show a rise in bad activities that also release the tension, such as real violence, or sex crimes.
that some Americans believe in private property, protection of contracts, freedom, and a government that works for the betterment of the American people.
would I want to voluntarily be stuck behind a truck going 90 km/hr? Just thinking about it has me searching for third gear while sitting at my desk:)
But I enjoy watching rollerball:)
My graphics card is at 68C and goes up to 73-74C when it gets used by the games. It would be better to use the existing heat output from a computer to cook than to bother with USB. Maybe someone should build a custom case that looks like a hibachi grill on the top.
