Man, here I was hoping helm's deep would reinvigorate LOTRO. And yes, I had even pre-ordered it.

Oh, by the way, you cannot use an extension cord to charge an EV.
This is not actually true. The Level 1 "emergency" charger (120V 8A) that came with my Mitsubishi MiEV works just fine on an extension cord. The gauge of the extension cord has to be reasonable for the length of the cord itself, though. The charger works at the end of a 100-foot extension cord if that cord is 10 gauge (these are readily available at major home improvement stores). I have used a 12 gauge extension cord that was 25 feet long with no ill effects (voltage drop, etc.) as well.
To keep from losing existing charge due to climate control of the battery pack, the Level 1 charger would have worked just fine. It certainly isn't a good choice for charging for range, though. (The MiEV only has a nominal 62 mile range, and the Level 1 charger needs 22.5 hours to charge it to that range from empty.)
Only when you made copies of your Romeo & Juliet where the death scene is at the beginning and the rest follows with the word "Zombie" inserted here and there would you be in violation of copyright (well, not really due to that one having expired, but you get the point).
Actually, no, this should not be a violation of copyright as it seems very much like a parody of the original work, which is recognized as a form of Fair Use.
I do that, but it is limited in its usefulness because there is not a simple way of then killing off one of those addresses that you have made up on the spot.
- 1) Navigate to "The Gear" > Settings > Filters > Create a new filter .
- 2) Put the disposable, made-up email address in the To field of the form.
- 3) Select Create filter with this search . (Check the correctness of the filter via the search results that appear.)
4) Select the Delete it checkbox (and maybe some others, such as Mark as read
- 5) Select the Create filter button.
You will no longer see any more of the emails from that disposable made-up email address. Enjoy!
Compassion is an individual trait. It is not something that can be compelled by government fiat, no matter how much some people may wish that were so. I personally have given far more to charitable causes than my peers in my tax bracket. I would be able to give even more if the (U.S.) Federal government would actually respect its constitutional bounds and not try to do all sorts of things that were meant to be state and local concerns.
A bureaucratic centralized government is simply not very good at being a respecter of persons. As a result, it is very susceptible to fraud and abuse, thus denying those who are truly in need the help they deserve. Communities should be the ones helping their own, not a bureaucrat in a distant capital deciding that only one solution is the "correct" one.
I am not asking for taxes to be lowered (at least not initially). What I would like to see is that the Federal bureaucracy be slashed and the revenue returned to the states and localities based on demographics in the form of block grants. I certainly do not advocate, for example, that local school districts suddenly face financial crises because they are abruptly weaned from the Federal government teat to which they have become addicted.
But, communities are small groups of people who form social bonds and look out for each other. Having an overbearing central government dictate solutions to what are ostensibly local problems from "on high" does not have a very good track record of success.
So, I suppose my "ideal society" is to return control of matters to the smallest locus of responsibility of the group that is affected. This doesn't advocate suffering. On the contrary, it advocates communities bonding together and forming their own solutions that are tailored to their unique problems.
- health care: you must enslave the doctor, who spent years of his life learning his profession, by telling him who he must treat, how much he must charge for his knowledge and labor, etc.
- food: you must enslave the farmer, who accepts weather and crop failure risks and expends his labor in the fields, by telling him what to grow, how much to plant, and to whom to sell and for how much.
- housing: you must enslave the contractor and the construction worker, telling them what to build, where to build it, and how much to charge for it.
Those "rights" boil down to either the enslavement of the persons who are the producers, or the confiscation by force of the wealth produced by the labors of others in order to pay the farmer, doctor, and construction worker without enslaving them specifically.
Basic human rights are the intangibles that do not require something to be coerced from another human being:
- life: murder should be illegal, and your government should not be able to coerce you with force.
- liberty: freedom of speech (even political speech), the right to bear arms (to protect your liberty, not just in self-defense, but even from a tyrannical government), etc.
- pursuit of happiness: being able to choose a career (but also to be responsible for the consequences of that choice by not impinging on someone else's liberty or pursuit of happiness) and gain materially from your efforts and to own personal property.
Using the government to ensure material results into basic human rights is tyranny.

Just choose a diameter that will accommodate anything you might expect to pull in the future and be sure to have some intermediate weather-tight boxes every few hundred feet.
