They will just not US citizens. This rules are obviously written with H1B's in mind. :P I joke....but seriously when confronted with obviously illegal orders, who is more likely to say "fuck you, that is illegal" and then become a whistle blower A) a smart 'snowden' US citizen or b) "call me sam" from India. Now which would the US gov be more interested in having in their cyber crimes division? Tinfoil hatish, but its the only thing that makes sense with such BS questions that are obviously meant to make it virtually impossible for any US born to 'pass'.

Coolest Summer On Record In The US

The frequency of 90 degree days in the US has been plummeting for 80 years, and 2014 has had the lowest frequency of 90 degree days through July 23 on record.

The only other year which came close was 1992, and that was due to dust in the atmosphere from Mt Pinatubo.

AC I cordially invite you to go fuck yourself. You seem to think "Samsung" is just one big company. Its not. There are many divisions of Samsung that are creating - and have created - cutting edge tech. Tech that is changing the face of the industry. For example their storage division's Solid State Drives have the lowest RMA in the consumer sphere. The only one comparable in NAND mfg'ing is Toshiba (imho IMFT's output varies from good to very good...but its QA is a touch lacking...thus is 3rd). Hell if its wasn for Samsung's storage division solid state drives as we know it today wouldnt exist.

I can see why you posted AC - because you are a 'tard. Just look at the size of Sammy's patent portfolio and the amount they spend on RnD. Actually dont. It will blow your little apple fanboi mind. Not saying Samsung is above copying...but Apple has copied a shit ton more than Samsung.

Ah gotcha. Thats makes a lot more sense. You are not a 'libtard' (vs teatard on the other side of the isle) are just a greedy douche who doesnt want his meal ticket canceled. Patent trolls need to die in a fire. If there is collateral damage it can fixed after this plague has been eradicated.

Storing pure hydrogen is a stone cold bitch at 'room' temp. Wait till peeps leave their car parked for a week with a 3/4 tank of 'gas' and come back and its down to 1/4....and fuggetabout long term storage. Hydrogen is great for immediate use but is not ready for prime time for vehicles that are used variably.

Voyager had a barking megalomaniac captain, a simpleton first officer, a naive Vulcan, a constantly whiny engineer, a cheesy helmsman, a spineless Chinese guy and an overly optimistic rat-face chef. I can't even remember the other cast members because they were just that forgettable.

Every single Voyager story was cookie cutter and it definitely felt like it. Suddenly the Geordi "Wait a minute, wait just a minute." moments where he figures everything out seem plausible stacked next to the convenient sequence of fortunate events in every Voyager solution.

Voyager was pure shit. It's not deserving of the Star Trek name.

Oh man that VOICE of janeway...that whiny, bitchy voice (especially when she was trying to emote). THAT is what ruined it for me. Everything beyond that was way beyond the pain threshold and therefore seemed 'ok'. :P

Strange how I live in a country where private schools are all but unheard of, and quality of our public schools is far greater than that of private schools across the US.

How soon should we expect them to become shit, existing only for the benefit of the government and teachers? They're only gone the way they are for about 40 years as far as I know, and they've been fairly steadily improving over at least thirty of those.

Another generation. Two at the most. Basically as soon as your power elite figure out that a stupid, compliant and ignorant society is easier to 'handle'.

If an experiment works, something has gone wrong.
