That's also how the believers work.
We get the same thing at bird dog field trials from popper loads (which can travel a couple hundred yards in a good wind) -- it's kinda like being spattered by light sleet.
The government should be =restricted= by the Constitution, as the Founders intended: government can or must do *these few things*, and all other actions are forbidden.
Well, your hair doesn't want to be free, but it falls out all the same...
Hey, maybe they can put their money where their mouth is -- get their DNA sequenced and torrent it to the world!
There are already lots of inexpensive community colleges (last place I lived it was $25/credit). There was a huge expansion of the program back in the 1960s, and it has continued to expand -- there are now over 1100 such schools.
And in Montana, the state university is entirely free to seniors.
Deer will also eat themselves out of house and home, even in areas where they are native.
And looking at the history of the Sahara (which during major warm periods has not been a desert), and the difference between grazed (vibrant) and not-grazed (desertified) -- it appears that climate changes and disuse are the culprits, far more than anything humans do.
Bah, pikers. I have WinXP installs with over 10 years of heavy use, with zero reinstalls -- and no issues. What on earth are some of these people doing??!
Kenneth Vogel, author of Big Money, a recent book on the rise of super PACs, was critical of of Mayday's efforts, saying, "While voters do express high levels of disgust about the state of campaign finance and the level of corruption in Washington, they tend to actually cast votes more on bread-and-butter economic issues." Still, Lessig is hopeful for the future: "We moved voters on the basis of that message. Not enough. Not cheaply enough. But they moved."
I know of one grocery chain that deliberately rotates everyone's shifts, so you have a different shift EVERY DAY -- the object is to try to prevent anyone from making it to the 20 year mark, which triggers a big benefits package. Quit before the 20 years are up, and you lose those benefits.
That may be, but there are always folks who want to build something with their own hands. Considering how many different kits are available, there must be plenty of demand, and they must work well enough to stay in business against the integrated solutions.
And total price may be a factor, especially if a person already owns the two major parts.
Speaking as one who used to get around town on a bike during Montana winters, with no special equipment (just the winter outdoor gear I'd wear anyway) -- nonsense. Tho you do quickly learn to never, ever use the front brake on ice.
Remember the ones that had little gasoline engines rather than electric? They'd use a lawn-mower engine. Don't know how well they worked but you can still get the conversion kits.
Not at any school I ever went to. At winter solistice, we'd arrive in the dark and get out at dusk.
Can't find it again in my overcrowded inbox, but today on someone's blog there were a bunch of good stats on the effect of daylight savings on energy use. In short, with DST there's more energy used in the morning but less at night, with a net usage increase of about half a percent.
