fine, its still not being exported to china.
Close; but you are essentially correct. It isn't the address but, the transaction which contains a small program which defines what inputs are needed to spend the coin.
Basically, you can think of a bitcoin transaction like a check. However, it is a check that allows for more nuanced cashing protocols. The standard default bitcoin transaction is exactly that, it defines the payee in terms of a public key, and requires the signature of the payee (by the private key) to "spend" (to make a new check out of it, or several new ones)
You could issue a transaction that just requires a password, or requires multiple keys, etc. Unlike a bank check, I could write a check to two people such that they must BOTH sign it.
I think one of the reasons few people know about it is that it is only relevant for people writting clients, and even then, the vast majority of the time its just filling in defaults. The actual uses for custom signature checking scripts are rather rare and specific.
The numbers for alphalpha and water exported didn't make a lot of sense, so I did a couple of quick searches: http://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcor...
This is, of course, not real water nor the water contained in the crop itself, but the water used to irrigate the crop, water that could be used for something more importantâ"at least according to the authors.
That is right, they are counting as "exported" water which....the vast majority of.... evaporates locally, and stays in the local environment.
That is straight up lies.
Well.... you remember that old commercial where the father finds the kids drugs and asks him where he learned about all this stuff. What does the kid say? Come on...you remember it....
"I learned it from watching you".
Gee, just how does he justify slurping up all their records indiscriminately....maybe...he learned that somewhere.
I never actually read any asimov. Believer it or not....not sure you are familiar with this consept...but people repeat things that other people said. Bibliopgraphy generally can be reserved for scholarly articles.
Well unless you want to sit them down in the bedroom and re-enact the sex education skit from the Meaning of Life there are not a lot of other options besides the drawings in biology text books. Then again, maybe not being a parent and not looking to teach anyone the birds and the beeds, I have totally missed the plethora of options...then again, even if it exists, I bet a lot of parents miss it too.
> nor do most women really want said monster penises jammed up their rectum
Maybe not monsters but, a significant number do enjoy having things....well jammed is maybe the wrong word.... never mind....
I really liked the way one person put it to me a while back. Some people used to have some idea the earth was flat, but then some people realized that wasn't true and said it was a sphere. Well, that was clearly wrong too but a sphere is a lot closer to the truth than flat; treating wrongness as a boolean would just label them both wrong but, one is clearly a lot less wrong than the other.
So to some degree, it was settled...possibilities were excluded. Then, well its clearly not a sphere, it bulges in the middle, I have heard "slightly pear shaped" is a good description.... then you have the satellites that have precisely measured variations in gravitational field...they have an even more complex picture.
Whether it is settled or not depends on to what degree you need the answers.
At my previous job, hospital IT, I used to get emails all the time because there was a doctor with the same exact name as me, but of course, since I started first, I got my name as my email address and his had to have a number added to it.
Though more often than emails, I would get pages, and would have to call back nurses and let them know they paged the wrong person...and no they probably don't want my advice on antibiotics.
Ahh the rule makers always love to complain about how people follow their rules.
Another way to say the same thing is that the export restrictions created a market for lightly processed oil products. If there is demand there is demand, it doesn't go away because you will it to. If that demand can be met in some way that fits in the rules and is still profitable, people WILL do it.
Trying to call that getting around a restriction is like the magic player complaining that someone insisted on playing stuff at the end of your turn after you said you were done. Duh read the rules, it isn't getting around anything...its what they say! Its following them.

Them not being able to participate is a drawback. Frankly, ignoring laws that are wrong is a persons duty. There is no legitimate reason to bar their particpation. Resepect for laws that are wrong is disrespect for the laws victims.
I have yet to see any reasonable argument why anyone should see it as their duty to follow the law just because somebody made a law.
> Last month she linked to an article on entrepreneurs suffering depression
You are missing the obvious fact that comes up if you do any searching on her.
She was known for having launched a product, aimed specifically at Second Life. If involvement in second life isn't a marker for potential lifelong clinical depression, then I don't know what is.
Have you considered that she only saw the extreme edge cases? The vast majority of people who take LSD never end up in an emergency room because of it. The vast majority never end up hospitalised. She, by definition of her job, only saw the worst.

Depends what you mean by "horribly wrong" or "bad trip". "Bad Trip" is used to describe any situation where a person has an emotional experience that they are having trouble handling. Yes, this happens. I have seen it happen. It can be loud, it can be scary, but it really turning into anything significant IS indeed rare.
In fact, if it wasn't rare, it wouldn't make the news.
Yes, its true, psychedelics can provide people with very intense emptional experiences, which are not always fun; anyone using them should be aware of and prepared for that. Anything beyond that is just unwarranted fear.

so a person who uses any state resources which they and their parents before them paid for....this should limit what opinions they are allowed to form later?
I was raised catholic and took first communion, and later came to realize the whole God thing was a sham, am I stuck being Catholic?
Seems like a raw deal to me.
Honestly I WOULD entirely agree if not for the MITM aspect.
If they really want to do that, setup a proxy and whitelist allowed sites. Deny SSL connections. Fine. Silent MITM attacks expose people in an unsuspecting manner; in ways that its unrealistic to expect most employees outside of IT to understand.

No. A hyperlink is a pointer to something else. A hyperlink contains no instruction as to what to do with what is on the other end of that link, the action is entirely locally defined by the web browser. A hyperlink is functionally no different from a bibliographic entry in a book...it is a named pointer; which you may or may not look up if you so choose. I don't see how the ease of doing changes the situation fundamentally.
