So, you're going to give your music files obfuscated names and locations? You'd better not import them into WMP or iTunes or any other media player with a database, otherwise the investigators will just look there to find out where the files are. Better clear your "recently played" lists from your media player, too, and take any shortcuts off your desktop.
...I mean, WTF? How much value do you put on your time and frustration? Just buy the bloody stuff already!
What part of "take the cars that don't meet the standards off the road" is unclear? Do you not have anything equivalent to a warrant of fitness in the US?
Milage standards haven't worked before and they will continue to fail. Forcing car companies to make vehicles that people don't want to buy isn't going to do anybody any good.
If they take cars that don't meet the standards off the road, and apply the standards to imports too, then either people drive more efficient cars or they stop driving. Either way emissions fall.
I read an essay by Martin Gardner in one of his books on cannibalism, asking whether it really happened. The essay was really a discussion of a book, which made the claims:
- No anthropologist / explorer had ever witnessed cannabilism.
- No tribe had ever admitted to it.
The book claimed that all evidence of customary  cannibalism effectively boiled down to a tribe / people / whatever saying: "Those guys who live over there, they are cannibals!" So anthropology students have been taught for ages that various primitive tribes engaged in cannibalism, but there is seemingly no proof of this statement. This was controversial and a few years ago (10, perhaps?) so I'm not sure what the current state of the art is.
 There are obvious one-off examples, like recently those rugby players down in South America, and in (pre)history perhaps eating mighty chiefs/warriors to try to absorb some of their strength or mana. This is, rather, looking at the idea of tribes that eat people on a regular basis.
Hah. Easy-peasy in python!

Do they not have a sun where you live?
Heh. Naming a bunch of things that orbit the earth after Galileo. Irony
Well, if you're female, you'll probably fold your arms under your breasts, sniff, and maybe tug your braid.
Don't they mean Planet IX?
At the risk of being pedantic, mushrooms aren't plants..
No, That starts with a T. Although it's still not a number (unless you're working in base 30).
F-Secure points out that
Q: Will that make all file extensions visible?
A: Well, no. There are executable extensions that will STILL be hidden even if you turn the option off.
A: For example PIF. This file type was meant to be a shortcut to old MS-DOS programs. Problem is, you can rename any modern Windows Executable to
.PIF and it will happily run when double-clicked.
Q: How do you I make PIF files visible then?
A: Via a registry key called "NeverShowExt". We'd link you to an article in the Microsoft Knowledgebase... except we couldn't find any. But here's a Web page on the topic, from GeoCities, made by some hobbyist a couple of years ago. Maybe it's the best source of information on the topic.
Unless you're on a laptop (or otherwise missing a numeric keypad)..
