If you live inside city limits, your choice of whether to discharge a firearm is probably the bigger question.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You say that now, but wait until you have a penis growing out of your forehead.
I literally cannot wait for that.
For paper and plastics, that's true. Glass would be the best bet, since the melting or flash point of the coating(s) is almost certainly lower than that of glass, so it can easily be separated.
Yes there is. Competition. Absent collusion, someone will implement it in an attempt to gain or maintain market share. I'm not saying the free market is a panacea, but that's the incentive, and I suspect it's compelling enough in this case.
First, everything is a chemical.
But more importantly, there is no such thing as superfluous genitalia.
I thought they did this years ago.
You are aware that Star Trek is not surveillance footage sent to us from the future?
I was about to upgrade my hardware, but instead I just pulled all my DIMMs and I'm only using virtual memory now. My computer is like a million times faster, and I think it even got rid of some viruses that were hiding in memory.
Now if I could just figure out why that goddamned System Idle Process is using so much CPU time!!!!!
Pretty soon folks will get used to tuning out while driving
And I'm all for it. Bring on the self-driving cars already. I love driving -- on empty roads -- but the daily commute or errand run begs for automation.
Anyway, who obeys the speed limit? Faster traffic means less traffic, which benefits everyone.
It's not about whether or not the bill would pass, but about speaking up.
Also, Google is gathering signatures for surveillance reform here:
While I completely agree, I'm not sure the Slashdot Effect has existed for nigh a decade now.
Just the fact that its episodes weren't self-contained, it's subject matter was the rape and murder of a teenage girl, and the fact that it had supernatural elements made it pretty revolutionary for 1990.
Not true at all. "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" had rape in the first episode, and much of his stuff involved the supernatural. It could easily be argued that he was the pioneer of the genre in television, a good 40 years before Twin Peaks. Of course, judging by our relative moderation points, people want to believe good things about Twin Peaks, and so they do. I guess that's the X-Files connection.
As far as story arcs, the contemporary (to Twin Peaks) "Picket Fences" had all of the things you're describing as well. Incidentally, Picket Fences almost had an actual crossover with the X-Files. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
And I don't begrudge people who actually like Twin Peaks, even if I cannot fathom the reasons, but I do think it's more of a "it's good because people say it's good," phenomenon than anything else.
For what it's worth, I never encouraged my daughter to pursue stereotypically female toys or activities. She seemed to prefer them either innately, or perhaps because her friends did. I did manage to get her interested in gaming though, although I'm supportive of whatever she finds fulfilling.
Twin Peaks is/was crap. I barely made it through all the melodramatic screaming and wailing in the first episode, and lines like "Diane, if you ever get up this way that cherry pie is worth a stop." I gave it two more episodes thinking, "this has to get good at some point," but it just didn't.
I don't have a fear of nuclear, and I used to be fully in favor of it, but the reality is that accidents can and will happen. If a solar or wind plant goes offline, there's just no electricity. If a nuclear plant goes offline, it can potentially result in catastrophic contamination of the surrounding geography. That's a reality that must be factored into risk vs reward.
