The laser could target only one mortar at a time,
In the words of 15 year old sarcasm-meisters from 1989, "No Shit Sherlock?". Though I for one welcome the innovation of lasers which are broad enough to simultaneously detonate a bunch of mortars spread out over several hundred feet in 3D space.
You cracked the case, Angela Fucking Lansbury. From now on, any time the government does something to force us to do some inane jackshittery we can all sit around and tut-tut sarcastically about how that silly government makes us not murder one another.
Seriously, do you know what a tool you are?
Government intervention should be a last resort when there is a clear, compelling, and massive social benefit to a majority of the nation. Forcing people to buy LED/CFL bulbs when there is already pricing pressure (the cost of your power bill) to do so is hardly compelling.
Bullshit. Eventually LED bulbs will be almost as cheap as incandescents, or something else will come along that's even cheaper.
But I like your paternalistic arguments, they fascinate me. I say we use them to ban all fast food, all junk food, and to ban elevator and escalator use for anyone not handicapped. Otherwise we'll always be fat and people will always buy cheap junk food.
Whoever modded this Insightful is fucking retarded. I mean enough already, don't breed and don't engage in moderation on the Internet.
I mean, we're free to choose so why whine about the NSA spying, right? We voted for Dubya, so how dare people complain about the war in Iraq?
"You voted for them" is the refrain from idiots when "their side" is currently in power.
Litecoin. Give me a fucking break.
The FCC's job is to determine if they are safe, so people calling for _them_ to ban them because of the annoyance factors are just assholes.
It's also not the government's job to prevent minor "annoyance" as some piece of bullshit populist legislation. If people are that annoyed the airlines can ban them.
