According to TFA, or maybe another article I read, that is a US-only requirement. There is no such requirement in Europe.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
These aren't new. In fact, the linked article is nearly a year old.
I can buy these at my local Menards.
When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.
It seems to me that the real "junk science" is among the Global Warming or Climate Change supporters. Hugely significant chunks of data were completely fabricated and faked going back decades, all to show support and "proof" for climate change.
Of this there can be no argument. It is established fact.
OK, let me get this straight. The dumb, uneducated, poor, largely minority backwoods state of Mississippi has the highest vaccination rate in the country. Sounds good so far.
And, vaccines are medically proven to be effective and not harmful. Got it.
The lowest vaccination rates are among the "educated" yuppie crowd (Prius driving, Whole Foods loving, vegetarian or vegan, politically left, etc.). OK, interesting.
So, tell me again who "believes in science?"
It has nothing to do with Medicaid. If cost was a factor, then the educated yuppie crowd would have the highest vaccination rates, not the lowest, as they are the most able to afford it.
No, it just means the Nigerians can send their money requests even faster.
I like how my options for buying a coal-powered vehicle continue to increase!
When the officer asks for your phone, it's easy.
There. 'nuff said.
Officer: "Have you been recording me? Let me see your phone."
Person: "Officer, you may have my phone when I am presented with a signed warrant from a judge."
Completely false. Zuckerberg is as far left as they come. I'm not aiming to make this discussion political, but it's abundantly obvious in the policies he, and by extension his company, endorse. Obama tells Zuckerberg "Jump" and Mark immediately asks "How high?"
Even if your ideas are true (and who is to say they aren't), an initial starting point is still required.
Personally, I like this for a very simple reason - my debit/credit cards tend to not last very long. Like, physically. The stripe wears out and a clerk has to try the 'ol "wrap it in a plastic bag and swipe it" thing, or the card physically starts cracking on or near the magstripe, etc. Then, I have to call my bank, get a new card that of course comes with a new number, re-set-up all my automatic bill payments, etc.
I REALLY like the idea to just hold my phone up for a second or two and put my thumb on it. Now if only there was an iPhone 6 anywhere in Nebraska that I could purchase!
I assume they put a decent camel jockey on the animal, probably brought it food and water, etc. I bet that camel's day was a lot better than it would have been if Google hadn't shown up to put a camera on its back.
Aren't the PETA folks big environmentalists too? I would imagine a camel puts out a lot less carbon and CO2 than a Jeep.
Why are they building this and paying millions for it?
Couldn't they just drive around most parts of Detroit? That'd be the perfect test, driving in a ghost town dodging random roving street gangs.
I worry/wonder about this too. We have a basic no-frills washer and dryer. I bought the washer probably 6-7 years ago at BestBuy, a Maytag model I think. Dryer was given to my wife and I (used) about 4 years ago. They do the job well, although I've had to disassemble the washer a couple times when something tiny (wife's hair tie, or little kid sock) somehow got through the internal plumbing and stuck in the water pump. But it's no big deal to do it.
My wife really wants a set of those fancy schmancy shiny front loaders that run about $1,000 each. But I've heard too many horror stories about them dying like yours, or expensive electronics dying, etc.
And then I hear my grandmother (bless her soul) has had literally the same washer and, I think, dryer since about the 1940s. She died this spring but my grandfather is still alive and at the same house so it's still getting used. They raised 11 kids too!
I don't care how "efficient" an appliance is. If you can run it for 70+ years without trouble, that's the ultimate in efficiency.
