Yep, good luck convincing everyone that they should live on only what they "need" to survive, because the mud-hut dwellers in third world countries "deserve" to live like 2010-era Americans.
Wait, "You can't do that on television" was CANADIAN?!?!
You would be wrong in that. Many studies have concluded that increasing highway speeds has little to no effect on number of accidents.
Sorry, but there is ABSOLUTELY no way to connect even a small fraction of this country with "reasonable public transportation". The distances are just too large. It works in major urban centers and that's it.
I hope it's like that "stair dismount" game from a few years back. Pick a position, crash the plane, and get points for how injured your passenger is!
You misspelled "days".
They didn't slow down to land
What was the windspeed and direction at the time of landing? What did ATC indicate was the minimum landing speed for wind conditions at the airport? What did the aircraft / company manual indicate what minimum approach speeds were for the conditions provided by ATC?
There's so much wrong with this statement that it makes my head hurt. Who the hell thinks ATC dictates landing speeds? Those are determined by the pilots. If you asked ATC what your approach speed should be, they'd laugh you out of their airspace.
Its true, I wouldn't want my name attatched to the Wings either.
One thing that I genuinely don't get: why does the rest of Canada want to keep Quebec? What's in it for you?
Hydroelectric power, mostly.
It's cute that you think that ANYTHING done by governments these days is driven by the will of a majority of citizens.
Anyone notice the two states with the most dots rank 41 and 49 on the list of states ranked by average IQ? Coincidence? I think not.
Uh. citation is in the current CFR. If you fly 121 at all, you had better be familiar with that. (there are no such restrictions on private pilots)
The NSA is SUPPOSED to be spying on foreign countries. IS that not what our spy agencies do? (CIA, NSA, etc). The issues is with them spying on Americans. Hell, I WANT them tapped into every other government on the planet. The more we know about others, the better for us. Just stay out of my damn e-mail.
(To be fair, I also understand that, say, the french spy agency, would be trying to spy on OUR government. that's how the world works)
No, that's not it at all. Dropping the speed limit from "stupidly low" to "Even MORE stupidly low" won't change a thing. Most modern cars can cruise at 80+ all day long on an interstate highway perfectly safely. The problem is the idiot texting, or insisting he has the right to be in the left lane because "he's going the speed limit!"
I'm too lazy to search it out now, but there are NUMEROUS studies showing that increasing speed limits has either no effect or a net POSITIVE effect on safety. (It's only negative for police revenue generation).
You are either lying, or SPECTACULARLY unobservant.
