Then the investors are stupid, because their about to see another exodus due to an unpopular price hike
Did you read anything past the title? You know, like the first sentence of the summary. The way I read it, only new customers will see the rate increase. So unless you aren't currently a customer you won't be affected.
While as a consumer I'll bemoan paying more, the reality is, to deliver quality content they need to find the price sweet spot. It's still way below the cost of cable TV, so I don't think it will hurt them in the long run.
Yes, it seems like it will mainly benefit shareholders, but with the lack of ads and low price, even after the increase, who can really complain?
From TFS, "Netflix Inc said it intends to raise the monthly subscription price for new customers by $1 or $2 a month..."
Unless my reading comprehension is on the blink, as a current customer, you shouldn't see a rate increase. Yet.
He could also die and have a huge insurance policy. If he did it right, Charliemopps would be first in line before his children & wife, credit cards, etc.
Unlikely. But unless things have changed, no one but the beneficiary can touch a dime of life insurance money.
no one can be called "astronaut" unless they travelled to another star system
Well the Russians really set the bar high then, didn't they?
So all the newspapers of the USA were closed and no TV stations were broadcasting news? Certainly today it would make a strong story - after all we're resurrecting it after all these years; I'm dubious that the fact that the newspapers of New York were shut would be a such a barrier then.
Those were much different times. There were no 24 hour news channels, no internet, and radio was somewhat different then. Print was just about the only place this kind of thing would have showed up. And since most papers were more focused on the city they were based in, it's unlikely it would be reported in another cities paper. Remember, TV news was an hour, at best, in the evening. Even if it would have ended up on the evening news, it would probably have been mentioned in a 30 second bit at best. There wouldn't have been a 2 hour "special report" on it.
In TFA. You might know it as the thing nobody reads before posting comments.
"would be virtually impossible at sea."
Ah, use of those famous last words I see......
It's unsinkable I tell you!
So what about Tsunamis? What if a giant rock or snowball from outerspace hits it at upwards of 17000 miles per hour?
I believe the tsunamis are why it's to be placed several miles off shore in 100 m of water, or more. At least that's what the summary said. As for the others, A giant rock colliding in the ocean, with or without the reactor, is going to be a pretty big problem. That's how we got the gulf of Mexico along with a possible planetary extinction event. You might as well be worried about the devil himself opening up a giant hole in the ground and swallowing the entire city you live in and bringing forth the apocalypse.
See, that's the genius of it! The radiation kills the sea life before it can attach...
Or turns it into a giant rampaging lizard that destroys Tokyo.
No, like Green Jello.
Didn't Jello sue them over the Jello trademark and they changed their name to "Green Jelly"
They were afraid the computers would steal their souls through their tax returns.
Sadly we gave them away for free, in the name of (false) security, not long after September 11, 2001.
Sorry for not understanding that some people can't understand that your RETIREMENT SAVINGS go into a RETIREMENT SAVINGS account.
Are you part of that 44%?
It doesn't matter if you find an account with a 5% return. At $5K per year you are not going to get to a million dollars between the time you graduate college and want to retire.
$417 per month ($5004 per year) at a rate of 5% compounded yearly will take 49 1/4 years to get to $1,006,351.71. Realistically you're not going to get a job right out of school that allows you to save that kind of cash, especially if you have student loans and need to start a household. Nor is a 5% rate of return all that realistic currently.
At a 3% rate of return it'll take almost 66 years.
