Yeah, there's a mistake with your numbers. With those figures you're either trying to say that the US only has about 326 people in it or that website costs more money than the entire world has produced in the last 10 years.
Shit, they make it sound like you just walk out your front door and after a short nap the driver wakes you up directly at your destination. I must be doing something wrong when I have to transfer to 3 different buses so I can pick up dinner on my way home. I may not be in the norm but after extensive travel on the bus system here over the years I've found that I have a better idea of where things than people that just drive straight to work/school and the grocery store day after day.
Should I vote for right this minute if I'm currently using a dialup modem to prop up an older monitor? It doesn't specifically say I have to be using it for its intended purpose and I am technically "using" it.
I don't understand what the problem is. Is someone worried that all the people against guns are going to stalk the gun-wielding people and ask glare at them menacingly?
The last two years have actually seen a resurgence of poison counters. Starting with the 2010 Fall Block of Scars of Mirrodin and the follow up expansion New Phyrexia in 2011 they combined the Poison and Wither mechanics together to create the Infect mechanic. Anyone that was discouraged by poison before would probably not be to happy with it more recently.
Blowing up asteroids is oldschool. All the cool kids these days just open a hyperspace window and fly them safely through the planet and then conveniently forget that we have a massive object rich with valuable minerals in orbit around Earth for the rest of the series.
Stop all the downloadin'
The party doing the suing does in fact have trademarks on "The Hobbit" relating to alcoholic beverages.
Both were filed in 2011 and since things like prior art and such don't apply to trademarks they seem to be well within their rights to sue. I'm against things like patent trolls and eternal copyrights as much as anyone else and I'd find it highly distasteful if they don't intend on actually using the trademarks for anything other than bullying people but this is a case where the pub in question probably should have known better.
I can't believe the owner of this pub was really "absolutely stunned" that this happened. If I ran a bar named after a fictional race that was featured in three highly successful movies with a fourth movie in the works using said fictional race as its name and used a bunch of copyrighted images and character names from those movies on my website I would be stunned if they didn't sue me.
No where is an inalienable right denied by moving someone elsewhere to watch their material. That this is a tax-funded organization does not change that.
That's a nice position. While we're at it let's just set up a bunch of new zones for all of our rights. Zone A is for religion. Zone B is for speech. Zone C is for the press. Zone D is for petition. Oh, and by the way you're going to have submit to an intrusive and degrading search before entering these zones because your right against unreasonable searches and seizures is handled in Zone E and doesn't apply anywhere else.
Don't mind the guard towers and barb wire fences, they're there to protect your rights, provided you're in the right zone.
If any of this is true and having to boil water before making coffee was a serious burden for the people of Boston then I really have no desire to ever visit out of fear of contracting stupidity. Do you have any idea what's involved in the process of making coffee? I'll give you a hint, it's not freezing the water.
soaring at over 11 miles a second straight

When you don't take it out of context it's a 100% accurate statement. The asteroid is heading straight towards the Earth/Moon system, it's just that the portion of it that will be hit is empty space.
I wouldn't mind getting an invite from someone if possible, my email is my slashdot username at gmail. Thanks.
I was wondering the same thing. First there was the promised x64 release for Firefox 4, then the promised x64 release for Firefox 5. I'm guessing the real reason is Adobe dragging its heals with an official x64 release of flash more than anything but the only explanation I can seem to get is that they didn't have time because of the tight schedule for the Firefox 5 release. If that was true then we'll never get an x64 release because their new high pace schedule will make every release "tight."
You've always been able to load a URL into a spreadsheet...
I must have missed that feature while playing around with Lotus 1-2-3 and VisiCalc back in the 80s.
Yes, but she admitted herself that the way the law was worded it could be used to ban books. She defended the law for it's good uses and simply said that it's ok that it could be used to ban books because "no one would ever use the law for that." It's similar to defending a law that made jaywalking a crime, and made it legal for the president to rape people because "no one would ever use the law for that." Yes, that is an extreme example, but I consider anything so blatantly unconstitutional to be extreme.
She might not have outright supported banning books, but she was fine with a law that could let it happen. The law is unconstitutional. Defending, voting for, or introducing a bill or law that you know full and well is unconstitutional while in a position of political authority should be criminal. If it's found that a law is too broad, or could be easily twisted to do bad things, fix it. If the same people keep trying to pass bad laws they need to be removed from power.
Both parties are guilty of these kinds of appointments. All they seem to care about is if the appointee is allied with their party and support a few of their pet causes. Who cares if they have a few other views that are insane, we'll just try to cover that up or accuse the other side of being petty because they're not happy the appointee isn't allied with their party.
Sorry about the ranting, but watch C-Span for any length of time and your eyes are opened to just how corrupt the whole system is and you start getting a little angry about things.
