You're right on. Norton is a system hog. It's almost as bad as the malware it guards against.
Moral of the story: Don't do stupid shit like bomb threats. Really I can't believe anyone is idiot enough to do that shit above middle school age. To get out of a fucking exam? He deserves jail just for being an idiot.
I always love the Orwellian references.
Public schools get a lot of federal funding. That is part of the problem as federal funding comes with federal regulations. Public schools have to put up with a lot of silly rules that have little to do with education. Unfortunately a lot of the private schools were set up not with excellence in mind but simply so that rich white kids don't have to associate with poor whites and blacks. At least they don't, for the most part, have to deal with the disruptions and lack of discipline which is the standard in the public schools.
It is just flamebait. They know that these kinds of articles just end up being a blue vs red slugfest.
Am I wrong? It's exactly what happens. A guess based on the slimmest of knowledge. I can't count how many times I've seen these sudden bursts of enlightenment get changed when everything they thought they knew gets turned upside down. It's a guess and only by the loosest term an educated one. I'm sorry if the facts hurt your feelings.
Guesswork. They take what they think they know and use it to make a guess that will change every time they find out what they thought they knew was wrong. It's fun to follow but don't put too much faith in it.
People are a product of their times. While true that Mandela embraced violence he felt that he had no choice at the time. Terrible acts were being committed against his people by the government of South Africa. I think most telling was that when he finally overcame and was elected president he did not use that power to trample the former oppressors but instead used his power to heal his country. I think I was most impressed by how instead of imprisoning and executing former secret police he had them confess on video their crimes and then pardoned them. Some criticized him for this but they miss the beauty and power of the act. By having them confess on video he broke these men and made them small. If he had executed them in a wave of bloodshed then the backlash would have caused South Africa to take decades to heal, if ever. The legacy of these men will be forever shame and disgrace as is that of the apartheid regime. No hero is perfect and I feel that Mandela genuinely deserves the term.
It's a fucking secret. If they tell her then it's not a secret! This is why we have secret lists, so we can get around the Constitution which inhibits us from doing what we want to do. We can't keep people safe from the bad guys if we have to follow the Constitution.
Fuck me! I mean....Fuck you!
Breathing is a privilege, not a right.
Funny. We have state roads that individual states maintain. In fact we have some county maintained roads around here that the county built and continues to keep in good shape.
Another question. Can't the judge summarily rule against the government since they wouldn't allow the person to testify? Essentially they've denied a fair trial and he could just drop the hammer.
But.....aren't the Democrats mostly in charge? Executive branch and the Senate means they've got the upper hand. The GOP mostly just bitches and tries to slow down the hope and change.
The 40 amp ones are usually 240volt circuits. Generally 15 or 20 amp for 110volt lines. I didn't check the math for the 5 cent figure but 8.3amps for 20 minutes is probably less than 5 cents. A 100 watt light draws less than an amp. That's about a third of a penny for 20 minutes at my residential rate. Doing a little math means almost 3 cents. It seems silly but if everyone starts doing that crap those pennies add up. Still, I think chewing his ass out would have sufficed.
