My wife has a lot of technically unsophisticated clients. More than half came back with "I can't open this." Not worth the time to educate them, so we went back to Office.
Protected by, yes. Full access to all constitutional rights, no. Despite how US constitutional arguments are often presented, there are actually quite a few limits placed on things guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. The classic example is that it is illegal to falsley and intentionally yell "Fire" in a movie theater, which is a limit on freedom of free speech, a right guaranteed by the constitution.

Non-maths guy, so his explanations and examples are approachable. Good jumping off point if it piques someone's interest.
I'll feed the troll.
One thing that's probably very difficult to measure from satellite images is energy in a storm, which I would think would be an important part of measuring storminess. I'd think that knowing how far the impact extended through the earth would be very helpful in measuring energy.
These are speeding tickets, not light-running tickets.
