You are right, no way....
The Queen still drives. You can see her taking the family Volvo out of Windsor occasionally.
Are you suggesting we get nukes to drive themselves?
Your employer generally doesn't care about what you do in private unless you bring it to work with you.
I don't think they need to get a grip at all. As long as society at large condemns excess of sex, drugs or guns and finds events including those news worthy any boss worth their salt is going to want to distance themselves from people who practice those. Because at the end of the day, if the company ends up being in the news for one of their employees putting up pictures of their weekend sex orgy on the company Facebook account, its the companies reputation, not just the individuals that ends up getting trashed.
If you don't sack the individual pretty quick you might lose reputation and business, and have to sack other people etc...
Its not Employers that need to get a grip, its everyone else, who watches the news.
A bit of advice for you, if you are "Self-Employed" avoid using the word "Employer" to describe people who pay you. They are clients. If you call them Employer, you are not Self-Employed. In UK the above can be used to sue you for tax evasion.
I don't understand. What does a flu jab have to do with egg allergy?
Is it made using eggs?
1. They are done on both.
2. Races wouldn't be very fun to watch if the participants get stuck in a traffic jam.
No one is forcing you to pay taxes. So get back on your high horse and ride it to the nearest homeless shelter.
Leave those clever enough to discern a benefit to continue to improve my quality of life (for which I gladly pay tax).
Getting lots of smart people together yields cool technology. Doesn't mean that original goal that got them together has economic value, though.
Yes... It really does...
Everything we have today, when converted to your "economic value" was derived by some people doing something they didn't originally thought was going to give them "economic value".
The human race literally benefits from any new and seemingly useless activity that it attempts to undertake. Someone much later eventually finds out how to make money out of that idea.
Let me give you a small example... The magazine "New Scientist" is only economically viable because people like reading about new non economically viable (yet) research. So particle physics is already generating revenue for some people.
This site is generating revenue from your visit because you chose to read about this story. Especially as you are anonymous and can see adverts.
It's already economical. In fact it's even better that it's done with public money because private industry (the only industry that generates a little thing called TAX) can just use the useful bits without spending huge amounts on R&D.
So the original goal of sating ones curiosity always has economic value. Even if you just watch other people do it on TV or read about it on Slashdot.
All actual criminal acts provide value to someone. You need a better argument than that if you want to actually come across as rational and not just a lawyer.
Since the US has no lift capacity any more the weapons would have to be civilian.
I used to write apps that could have made me a couple of million, but then I took an arrow in the knee...
How about soothing music and images of cute furry animals to ease that road rage instead? Have a nice day...
As the trials of life continue to take their toll, remember that there is always a future in Computer Maintenance. -- National Lampoon, "Deteriorata"
