Out of sheer respect, friend. Sheer respect.

I'm a fairly large person as well, so I have no problems whatsoever in stopping, holding my ground, and letting the oblivious asses walk into ME! They usually look quite irritated (although they seldom dare to get angry with me, what with the size and all).
I'm usually very polite, but these asses are pushing the limits. So I just won't take it any more.
Because I for one hadn't read the full story. It's good to be reminded that (1) there are thieving lying scumbags out there, (2) there always will be. I'm also personally pleased to see the victim continue to screw with this particular scumbag's life, forever and ever, ad infinitum.
Everyone needs a hobby, right?
Don't those guys on the NCIS TV show do this all the time?
Riiii-ight. Well, I do like my music bits and bytes nice and shiny and orderly.
Except I don't know how good these things could possibly be. I mean, they aren't even gold plated! Didn't we learn from NASA: everything headed for outer space must be gold plated?
They _are_ speccing these cables for the ISS, aren't they?
I notice he didn't touch that question about the American nuclear sub Scorpion. Too sensitive? Things they don't want us to know? A US Navy military grave? Or just the US Navy's sphere and he wants to stay clear?
"people in general are honest"
Can't get much more blatant than that. So you have to PAY to get girls (and some minorities) to even try to program?
That's pretty stupid too.
Redefining may be a help, putting more social and commercial pressure on the networks and ISPs. It's too bad we can't let the usual (?) free enterprise forces handle this but, as said above, that doesn't work with government-sanctioned monopolies.
After SWAT and other wanna-bees worked so hard on their door-knock-down techniques?
Well, I've sent in my complaint
"http://yro.slashdot.org/story/15/01/17/176248/fcc-may-permit-robocalls-to-cell-phones----if-they-are-calling-a-wrong-number Do not, repeat, DO NOT open up cell phones to telemarketing or any other dialing scam. While you're at it, put teeth into the current telemarketing scams, fake caller IDs, and all the rest. You KNOW what's going you; you just need to find the balls to do something about it. "
I fully agree. You can tell Frederick County Councilman Kirby Delauter, "Bite me, Frederick County Councilman Kirby Delauter!"
Toad, NOT Frederick County Councilman Kirby Delauter Toad
So the very polite and courteous email I received from the Cuban Foreign Office back after Hurricane Katrina will no longer be quite the unique bit of memorabilia after all?
Lest we forget, Cuba offered to send doctors and other medical assistance to help the suffering residents in New Orleans after Katrina did its thing
So I emailed the Cuban Foreign Office to apologize
Detain? Phthth. Ignore works for me.
If we're eating more than we produce, that means we're eating stockpiled chocolate, right? Which means old chocolate bars. And we haven't noticed?
I used to wonder about the unique "Tropical Chocolate" bars we used to be issued in Vietnam. They always had a musty smell to them, but I figured it was from their unique properties (NOT to melt in hot climates)
The real panic won't begin until the stores (e.g., stored, stockpiled chocolate) run out.
