If that means their own codes of behavior, and those codes don't involve violence or property crime against others, yes, why not?
Very well, but that raises the question why all that land has to be public, especially when it's been okay for it to be used for decades by someone in particular.
Maybe he did mean that, but I responded to what he actually said. It's not like "society" and "country" are the same thing or are spelled similarly, or anything like that.
The lesson of Nevada is that there are self entitled people who don't realize that they belong to a country.
You're right, we crazy anarchists don't think people belong to a country. In fact, we're so bonkers we think that the country should belong to the people.
Stop stereotyping -- there are reasons to use Bitcoin other than just to be anti-establishment. It's an inexpensive and instantaneous way to transfer value internationally, for example.
Besides, Bitcoin isn't untraceable. The blockchain means it's rather the opposite, and thus is much less suitable for crime or tax avoidance than its detractors say.
If we allow retribution to be a part of the sentence we have a problem since the victims will have vastly different ideas of what an appropriate sentence is. The punishment will then no longer be able to fit the crime, some victims will ask for execution while others will be able to forgive and forget.
You seem to be assuming that people are only imprisoned for actions that have a victim. Unfortunately, all too often the only victim is the one who's being incarcerated, e.g., for drug possession, etc.
Wouldn't the prime directive of a Klingon beer be to not drink it with one's enemies?
we could in principle build something for which the Earth is an incredibly hostile hot environment
Like, anything with superconductors?
How many times do I have to show everyone you're a worthless piece of crap troll?
Zero more times.
Thank you, you beat me to it. It's disgraceful how much taxpayer money gets spent on those things.
The moon's close enough that we shouldn't bother with rovers, unless they're left behind by acutal astronauts..
If I go to the airport now I can get to Japan by tomorrow, but it still makes more sense for me to FedEx something there than to take it there personally.
So what, no Republicans voted to fund NASA or the NSF and Democrats don't vote for pork? This isn't MoJo, around here someone will call you on it when you engage in mindless political cheerleading.
BAD MOD: Not everyone will agree with this, but that doesn't mean it's flamebait.
The point of MOOCs is that since they're free, those who enroll in them can pick and choose from what's there that interests them. Plenty of people enroll in a MOOC because they want a refresher on something, or to learn about just one aspect of what's covered, or just to see what it looks like. It's not failure when those people don't go through everything in the course.
That doesn't seem to be considered a huge drawback in some Silicon Valley circles....
