Here in Australia, home-schooling is almost unheard of. The stereotype here is that only super-religious parents home-school their children, in an effort to shield the children from conflicting viewpoints. The exception is farmers in very remote areas where there are no schools.
What is it in America that makes home-schooling more popular there? Is it mostly religion-driven there too?
I own email@example.com and I get quite a few stray replies from companies responding to people who didn't want to give their real e-mail addresses when signing up for something.

I agree. The reassurances being uttered recently by health authorities were totally a odds with the facts. Two western patients and three resulting infections to health workers, despite having all the facilities and protective gear.
I'm still somewhat confident it could be contained in a major western country (if we can stop those stupid exposed health workers mingling with the general population), but imagine it getting into parts of Asia and South America.
yacc is very likely to be useful there
also awk and lex.
this is like the most prestigious post a female scientist has had, in the physical sciences. I knew one of the previous directors, and he was very laid back, I think she'll do fine.
Being a woman doesn't mean she's competing in the scientific special Olympics.
Oh, come on. Following your logic, criminals could just toss evidence of any sort into the sea with impunity.
"Sorry your honour, I did not destroy those financial records. I tossed them into the sea, and they're probably still there."
"Overly literal"; Seriously, for a law? Laws are supposed to be taken literally.
If congress hadn't intended this outcome (and I'm just assuming from the summary that this outcome is indeed a direct consequence of the law) then they should have passed a different law.
