Um ... properly initializing your session is the responsibility of the display/login manager not the desktop environment.

When I used SLiM I got around those errors with ConsoleKit in my .xinitd. These days I just use lightdm (ConsoleKit is dead, but Google will probably tell you the alternative if you really don't want to use a display manager).

My dad installed aftermarket cruise control for the first time because a drive that should have taken 5 hours took 3. It just use to be hard to maintain speed for a long time: some people always followed others, some people checked the speedometer all the time, some people drifted faster or slower, and maybe a tiny number actually managed to keep a more or less constant speed; but it certainly wasn't some skill that everyone use to have and now no one has. It was invented to overcome a shortcoming.

I could certainly believe this is the case with natural gas, which is as the name implies naturally occurring comes out during extraction, and is still a very cheap form of energy.

Gasoline on the other hand has to be distilled from crude, a process which I believe really only serve the purpose of producing gasoline. Gasoline is expensive, relatively easy to transport, and easy to burn, so I have a hard time believing they ever had an accidental surplus.

Probably because most violent offenders don't pick their targets randomly, or look for easy targets. Instead they go after people they have an existing conflict with like rival gang members, people who made fun of them, or that guy that slept with their sister and never called back.
