Or maybe Comcast is his current cable tv vendor, and knows that improving its service by a googolplexian, will still result in it providing crappy service, whether it be the techs that install Internet service to business customers, that don't know what Linux is, or the sales reps that don't know whether or not the company can serve a specific address, or the equipment people that send out "new" equipment that looks like a Leopard 2A7+ rolled over it.
Vizio honors their warrenty?
They aren't on my list of TVs to buy, having seen three fail within three months of purchase. (I bought the first one. An idiot with more money than brains bought me the next two.)
>Yeah, yeah, yeah, McDonald's Coffee case. There was something there legally that wasn't reported in the media or if it was, it went over everyone's head.
Things most people miss.
The manager of that McDonald's refused to pick up 50% of the initial ER bill. ( Literally, all they had to do, was sign a piece of paper, and that would have been that. I've forgotten the dollar amount, but even doubling it, to allow for the cost of having a lawyer examine it, would have been far cheaper, than the resulting lawsuit.)
McDonald's corporate had cited that specific McDonald's for violating their policy on how hot coffee should be served at, several times, before this specific incident occurred.
Need I mention her third degree burns, in an area of the body that is extremely difficult to treat.
But their replacement is even more subject to bias that p-Values.
At least with P-Values I don't have to delve into a dozen things that are not in the paper, to see the error. With their proposal, I have to investigate at least a dozen factors that are not mentioned dn the paper, to determine where, and why the errors that are made are present.
IOW their proposed replacement makes lying using statistics so much more trivial, that you can now say that lies and statistics are synonyms.
Even if the earth was in the middle of an ice age, the Western Antarctic Ice Shelf would be collapsing, and melting away.
Using that as proof of global warming, is akin to using Westboro Baptist Church as proof that God is enamoured of out-of-wedlock same-sex intimate sexual relationships, and that everybody must participate in one, at least once a week.
>If Americans adopt metric
I hope you realize that the United States was one of the first, if not very first country to both endorse the metric system, and make it a legal unit of measurement.
What Congress forgot to do, was mandate that all government agencies use the metric system.
Probably the major reasons for the failure of metrification in the seventies and eighties are:
A} Speed limits. Instead of changing 5 mph to 10 kph, it was changed to 8 kph. Nobody's speedometer has checks at 8 km/h, 16 km/h and similar multiples of 8.
B} Instead of moving the sign that says "exit 1/2 mile ahead" to "exit 1 km ahead", they changed it to read "exit 804.3 meters" ahead.
C} Instead of using cm to measure the height of a person, they used meters.
D) Instead of measuring bust size in cm, they used meters.
(One meter sounds small. 100 cm sounds big. Furthermore, nobody wants to be called a 1. 100, yes. 1, no.)
We are sorry, but the term " assclown " has been restricted to refer only to the individual who are/were part of Prenda Law, Inc.
Please do not use it for other purposes, or Prenda Law will be forced to file another frivolous lawsuit against you, for infringing upon their intellectual property rights.
In the short term, nuclear energy is cheap.
In the long term, nuclear energy is the most expensive option that is available.
Hint: After factoring in all of the costs, it currently cost one trillion dollars to produce one watt of electricity from nuclear power. That figure climbs at around two percent per month, and will continue to do so, for then dozen millennia.
I take it that you are not aware of the desalination plants that are solar powered, and distill the water.
Southern California can either use the Salton Sea as a dumping ground for the brine, or build a canal from the Salton Sea to the Pacific Ocean, reflood the Salton Sea, and build desalination plants on the Salton Sea, dumping the brine right back into the Salton Sea.
Counter-intuitively, dumping brine into the Salton Sea will reduce the amount of salt in it.
Building a canal from the Salton Sea to the Pacific Ocean, could be enough to trigger a jump in real production of goods in California. (Part of it is from demolishing existing structures, including the flood plain, and part of it is from building replacement structures.) Worst case scenario is that it promotes local jobs, in a fashion that few other government programs are capable of doing.
I really wish I remember the legal citation for the case where the perp read the password on a Post-It note on the monitor.
Perp went to jail for breaking and entering.
Was not guily of unauthorized access to the computer system.
There are several other court cases where the rule is that if the password is known, then the access is authorized, regardless of how the perp came to know the password.
>Many drug dealers don't give a shit about being arrested and doing a little time
I've known drug dealers deliberately get a little time in county lockup, to retain their street cred.
>You're going to automatically side against the LEO because the camera was disabled?
If the LEO was properly trained, they could walk into the rest room naked, and if there was an incident, walk out, with the other person under arrest, and neither party being injured.
>." Do you have to worry about getting shot at your job? Probably not
Law Enforcement does not even rank in the top ten list of occupations where being killed on the job is an occupational hazard. Nor do they come in the top ten, where getting injured by a gun is an occupational hazard.
It would be even cheaper to get a competitor to go with them. Roy Brizo Hot Rods LLC, for example.
