In my case back in high school, I went to the principal several times. The last day it happened, I punched the bully. We ended up in teh office and the principal outright lied and said he hadn't spoken to me yesterday about this very issue. Further, they suspended me for throwing the first punch... because I couldn't prove the guy had pushed me from behind. Taught me a lesson. Screw the authorities. If you're damned if you do and damned if you don't, you may as well do.
SOunds like a great case for jury nullification.... what a shame minors aren't subject to jury trials.
HOw will they charge the boy with wiretapping if they made him delete the evidence?
Ohh and from the same episode involving the first time home buyers tax credit, since my ex and I filed as married that tax year (we divorced that same year and I didn't realize we had to file as single), AND I'd gotten the home buyer tax credit, that money had to be paid back. No problem... if it's due, it's due. I paid it back and 3 years of penalties and interest. OK. The IRS continues to garnish $250 a year from the ex's income tax returns since that was the original payback schedule for that tax credit. She's gone to them with the cancelled check showing the debt was paid and they won't accept it. She's asked that they look at the tax year in which I repaid the debt and they say they can't since we're weren't married in that year. So she's stuck for the next 15 years paying back a debt that's already satisfied.
Even more fun.... I was audited by the IRS a few years ago and they asked for documentation 2-1/2 years past the filing date. I sent them paperwork as requested. They sent me letter after letter saying they were over worked and needed 45 additional days. Come July 27 of the following year (3 years 3 months form the filing date), they sent me a bill. I objected to the bill because they had negated my claim of head of household. They said sorry charlie, you can't make changes to your tax return after 3 years... but THEY DID. They said it was their rule and it only applied to the tax payer, not to them. seriously. Also, I sent them a check once. It was delivered on thier requested due date. I sent it by USPS and it was post marked two days prior. They charged me a late fee. When I showed them their policy about USPS vs FEDEX/UPS and the postmark being a legal date, they said that didn't apply. The date used was when the check cleared the bank. They don't even follow their own rules.
Bingo... that's what probate is for.
...and my coworker found that someone overseas filed taxes for him. The IRS can't figure it out, so he's now got two returns filed this year, one valid and one forgery. Efile for over seas is a boon to the scammers, eh?
Until you make enough money so that the fee your accountant charges isn't deductible... nor is child care credit... meanwhile the person dressed up as the statue of liberty on the side of the street is giving away $9600 a pop of (un)earned income credit to people who had more kids than they can afford. I'm supposed to feel good about taking care of my fellow (irresponsible) man.
I got a letter from the IRS in 1993 that said they'd found a math error on my 1040. I had over paid my tax by $17. Some months later I got a letter from a different department of the IRS saying that since my 1040 had been altered after April 15th, there was a $20 penalty. I owed them $3. I spoke to several layers of supervisors and finally one of them told me that they would waive anything less than $5. I never paid that "debt". Only the IRS can turn +17 into -3.
Errr... I thought that was 400hz for aircraft AC?? That meant smaller transformers.
Gosh, I just put an IR emitter on my dash flashing at 14.025hz and the lights are always green for me.... what's so new in TFA?
Am I the only one who wants to know more about how they ruled out the northern arc with doppler data? If the satellite is sitting over the equator, it would seem each arc would have the same phasing between two antennas...
.or are there three to make a spot beam?
What about the other pings? What angle did they come from? What degree of uncertainty is there in the receiving phased array on the bird? My current hypothesis is that they fly south easterly to Sri Lanka and then skirted the west coast of India and landed in coastal Iran. My (primitive) calculations say that's possible. If the last ping was heard at approx 40 from the Inmarsat located at 25 E, that would place them in the area of southern Iran, which supports my hypothesis from last week which was based solely on the distance they could fly.
Midgets and Oompahloompahs report and elevators smell differently to them than other people.
DC stops the phasing errors due to the >24,000 mile line length to encircle the earth. ABB is developing switch mode power supplies to buck and boost to the 500kV range, so we don't need transformers to buck/boost voltage, so we don't need AC power.
