Android does sandbox apps. The default internal directory for each app can only be read/written by itself. Prior to version 4.2, the SD card was public and could be read/written by anyone. 4.2 and later, only parts of the SD cared are publicly readable and only parts are publicly writable.

In both cases before and after 4.2 uninstalling will remove the private directory. It will also remove any private directory on the SD card, so long as the app used the default location. Some apps don't, purposely, so their data will persist if reinstalled.

It's already like $13 on a domestic flight. I've never seen anyone buy one of those snack boxes either, I'm starting to wonder if those snacks get installed at the factory and then never touched. Some poor sucker who takes them up on their offer would find some fossilized cheezits and peanuts that look like raisins.

Leave it to motherfucking Jeremiah Cornelius, whose opinions are so fucking important that he just has to barge his fat ass to the front of the line to reply to the post which will get him closest to the top, no matter whether that post has anything to do with what he wishes to say.

What an asshole.


Thanks for living in the past.

You are noble. In the best and most approving sense of the word.

There are people who haven't faced a fraction of your difficulty, who are yet to perform the level of introspection you've mustered to understand how they behave - and to derive from it a mission or a wish.

"but it is possible to be happy and depressed, the thoughts are not mutually exclusive."

Yes. Happiness is a real trip.

I don't know if we'd get along together in "real life" - but around this ASCII-space, I'm one of your real fans and supporters. And I'm glad to be.

For centuries people have had seriously inconsistent black powder. Having all of your bullets fire properly is a 20th century invention. Like I said, the tools are there, but manufacturers have machines that do it more precisely than a human is capable of and don't make mistakes (usually).

For powder, this mostly just means some bullets will be hot or smoky or heavy with residue and you'll have to clean your barrels more often.

...that it's still cheaper to fly jets like buses for the same kinds of routes a bullet train would cover.

Americans get all excited about this stuff without ever actually experiencing it firsthand. They never see the high prices or how it might be simpler just to rent your own car.

Bullet trains more of a glamour tech item like a Battleship or an Aircraft Carrier. They look good but they aren't nearly as practical as they seem.

If the US wants to act like it's in love with trains again, it would be far better to beef up CARGO capacity. However that's not sexy. No one gets exited about efficient cargo service.
