Considering how ubiquitous they are, one would imagine that would be a great candidate for DNA mining, retrieval, reassembly, and ultimately, recreation.
"I'm at a boarding school, and I'm annoyed that I don't get to do anything I want. Here's a way that I can prove I'm clever, and try to gain sympathy by making it sound ("...school TRICKS people into installing...") like it's the perpetration of some sort of subterfuge or a liberty/civil rights issue."
Want freedom? Don't go to boarding school aka juvenile prison.
Don't like the idea of someone looking over your shoulder while you're surfing? Become an adult, pay for your own web connection, and wank, er, surf away.
I'm pretty certain that people haven't wanted their kids to look at porn for, well, nearly ever. So this isn't something "new" being invented, it's something very, very old being reformulated to recognize a new delivery technology.
You DID read that the OP said he was at a boarding school, right?
That means that the school's responsibility doesn't start when they get off the bus in the morning, and stop when they get on the bus to go home. This means that the kids are functionally wards of the school...meaning the school is responsible for them 24/7....ie, what they do in their spare time.
Considering that any possible harm that comes to the child - be it physical, emotional, psychological - ends up being the schools financial liability, then they are entirely within their remit to lock-down any computer systems used on their grounds. Don't like it? Don't browse the internet at their school.
"... which was deliberately designed to set speed records. It was not a fighter, and was never intended to be a fighter...."
Which exactly ALSO describes THIS plane.
My point wasn't to suggest the 109 was the EXACT plane that won that race; instead it was to point out that the plane that was eventually the combat fighter Bf109 had its tech origins in the Bf209, or at least in the heads of the same design team, and probably was about as like the Bf209 as the (eventual combat-deployed successor) had to this one.
I've seen so many radical reversals as far as what's healthy to eat, what's not, that frankly NOTHING "the experts" say about diet today is credible.
I follow a pretty simple set of guidelines:
- don't over eat
- eat food as close to its natural form as you can: sugar, not 'sweetener'; eggs, not "egg product"
- fewer names is better. "Coke" instead of "Caffeine Free Diet Vanilla Coke with Lemon".
"...should do is repurpose the stores to become
Except that you have to PAY knowledgeable people a wage that compensates them for their knowledge, not the shit-wage that retail electronics stores pay their register-slaves.
"... who know how to make custom electronics..."
You want BOTH of them to be working in a Radio Shack now?
Notice that the people still waving this old canard about "gender pay inequity are the ones that can derive personal/political power, or wealth from the assertion.
Let's remember that it's NOT only Bitcoin that's vulnerable to theft, cf Target, etc.
Real-world money can be scammed, stolen, etc particularly in its virtual form.
Bitcoin, not having the backing of governments, has fewer protections.
This is a 'value tradeoff'.
I'm not going to say Bitcoin is a stupid, shitty idea. It's a currency, just like Yap Island Stone Dollars are currency; over time, we'll see what it's TRUE value is and the market will likely reflect it.
Right now it's IMO grossly overvalued because of trendy-chic and an underestimation of the vulnerabilities it faces.
All of your "assertions of fact" smell strongly like you pulled them from your butt.
"...Treatment pretty bad and opportunities pretty limited" - according to most of the people I've talked to in tech fields, frankly, this experience is the same whether you have a Y chromosome or not.
Got ANY sources for any of these 'facts' or is it just what you believe?
First, thanks for linking a page with autoplaying video, LOVE THAT.
Second: combat aircraft are about much, much more than speed. Note this line: "...The reigning air speed record of the time was 469mph, set by a German Messerschmitt plane in 1939...." That was the plane that LOST the Battle of Britain, by the way.
The Bf109 was 10% faster than the Spitfire during the Battle of Britain anyway, an even faster plane - assuming it would remain so, after the addition of reasonable fuel tanks, armor, guns, ammunition, and a fighting canopy - would have helped how?
Note, the power/weight ratio for this racing plane, 3.44 lbs/hp, is precisely the same (curious?) as the unloaded combat Spitfire. Wing loading is much less, but if we presume the addition of 1000+ lbs of combat-necessary weight, that would be rather worse.
No, this is a clever design, a very pretty bird, and will be interesting to see fly. I would be a little nervous, without seeing the wind-tunnel results, of flat spins and yaw control generally, not to mention forward-swept wings being notoriously twitchy in practice.
"...We're starting to find out that what happens at one trench doesn't necessarily represent what happens in all the trenches..."
When speciation is happening in adjacent subway tunnels in the London Underground over as short a span as 100 years, I think it's pretty certain that deep-sea trenches separated by hundreds if not thousands of miles will evolve rather dramatically differently?
I have to admit, It's kinda cool that Putin posts on slashdot.
I'm perfectly willing to agree to such a system - as long as we're able to throw Ichijo in jail the *moment* one of these "rehabilitated" people commits another crime.
Because I believe that - for whatever reason - these individuals are fundamentally broken in a social sense, and I don't believe that they can EVER be made into unbroken people, although it's probably possible to teach them to 'fake it' well enough to get by (until they're motivated enough).
It's one thing to tolerate miscreants in a widely scattered society.
It's another thing entirely to have 7 billion people jammed together cheek-by-jowl, and tolerate individuals amongst us who fundamentally don't understand the sanctity of other's property, person, or life.
I'd say that the reason crime is so rampant in the US is because it's obviously rewarding, even prison sentences are just a multi-semester term in "crime school".
I don't think punishments are draconian enough.
