He would have to have a pre-agreed guilty charge to something relatively minor, with all other related charges waved, however a government might do that this side of a pardon.
Can a 4 rotor continue flying, or at least make an emergency landing without flying wildly or crashing, if one rotor goes out?
With a max load package?
For that matter, can a 6?
I'd have fun clamping the opposite end, then counting to see how many revolutions it would take before it skipped or tore itself to pieces.
Blue Cross in Michigan used "Oh, our mainline plan, good for 50 years, is now legally substandard because it doesn't offer (fuck if I know, abortions for Pekingese maybe) as an excuse to dump tons of people off the gold standard Blue Cross plan, and then offer new plans for thousands of dollars more a year.
There was nothing substandard at all about the previous plan, as it was the mainline Blue Cross plan, and even if so, that's irrelevant, because a Man Who Wasn't Lying said you could keep your plan. Well, we couldn't because that fraudulent liar made that plan illegal.
Yep. Not particularly strenuous CRC formulae can detect errors that may happen in a data stream running the entire age of the universe.
The goal, of course, is not to prevent this stuff from getting out -- people will sneak it out trivially and host it outside the US. And state-level agency, or large terrorist organizations, could just send legal (on the surface anyway) visitors to pick it up, if they wanted to, which they don't.
The goal is to intimidate the makers of such designs. Arrest first and ask questions later, when such designs get out. I wonder how they will take that intimidation?
The City of Detroit's property taxes are ridiculously high -- as property values collapsed, they kept bumping it up to keep up the city income, helping to drive out further business.
Spartans the modern Greeks are not.
George Burgess, director of the International Shark Attack File at the University of Florida's Florida Museum of Natural History, speculates that several environmental factors could be pushing sharks to congregate in the Outer Banks. It is a warm year, and the water has a higher level of salinity because of a low-level drought in the area. Also, a common species of forage fish — menhaden — has been abundant this year and might have attracted more sharks to the area. Burgess also says some fishermen put bait in the water near piers
"Also, the number of floating chewy fatbags is greater than ever thanks to the 2 for $5 sales at McDonald's this year."
Is the OP aware the Dune milieu was intended as a commentary on the West and Middle Eastern oil?
IIRC, in the story, as ridiculously profitable as Dune was for the Emperor, the cost of his army assault ate up some 40 years worth of sales, which was almost spot on to the first Gulf War vs. Iraq's profits, which were not even taken to pay for it

Ahhh, lawyers. Is there nothing you can't invent ways for corporations to throw money at you over?
Too much government power stomping around here. But the real issue isn't about some innocent guy's arrest record.
It's whether we want to grant government the power to censor, even for well-meaning reasons. History shows you don't. Many European countries lock down private lives of politicians as first principles of this. Politicians protecting themselves and their power.
> This guards against attackers unlocking a device with an image of the fingerprint
Now we will need a 3D rubberized printout of a finger body part with fingerprint.
I can't imagine any other industry that could drive this technological development to maturity.
Turing and "imagine" is normally in the same sentence with "powerful processor" and "Beowulf cluster".
To protect Pirate Bay and file sharing, or help crush patent trolls.
I imagine for those guys it's like Peter Griffin trying to decide between Ernest Goes Out and Ernest Stays In.
