At least it's not molasses: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B...
They'll sell ammonia for only slightly less than the equivalent amount of gasoline and increase their profits. The oil industry has been known in the past to fix prices through cabals.
When the revenue of such a decision is greater than the expenses, they will do it.
What was the plan for fixing the Mac from the 80s if it broke? I wouldn't want to risk a multi-million dollar operation on being able to find an old mac for sale on ebay. You'd have to really hope that the installer floppies were sufficiently backed up and that you could find a floppy drive from that era that didn't have too much dust in it to function.
For people who aren't aware:
"I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful manner by saying no."
Gas taxes, license fees, tolls, etc. only pay for 51% of what the federal government spends on the roads that your car is on, with general tax dollars filling in the rest. Why stop at just subsidizing the roads themselves?
The fully automatic modes have to be much better than humans before people will accept them. If you ride in the front train of a Chicago CTA train, you can hear the overspeed warning beeping from the operator cabin about every 10 seconds. If the operator ignores it, the train will automatically shut down to prevent the train from derailing.

If need that 20ms transaction to be done in 2ms, it really helps to have the analytical thinking skills developed from taking advanced math in order to understand how your database executes the query.
Do you interview all of the parents of your children's friends to make sure they don't have a gun in their home?
I consider myself to be pretty liberal, and while I'm not an advocate of gun control (aside from the fact that it's a guaranteed right, gun control wouldn't work), I would welcome education. According to the numbers, most people are far more likely to hurt themselves by having the gun in their beside table than they are be able to prevent personal harm from an intruder. The intruders are far more likely to wait until you're gone, and if you're a total idiot that does not properly secure your weapons, they'll steal your gun from your bedside table and use it for crimes or gang violence.
You know what else keeps fuel efficiency low? Big engines. Consumers have demanded them instead of efficient vehicles in part because we make driving artificially cheap by subsidizing road construction with more funds than we take in from gas taxes. Consumers are typically horrible at acting rationally in their own self interest and are far more likely to act on emotion and misinformation, although I don't think the government should necessarily take the nanny role in those situations.
You'll want to pay attention to color temperature and CRI. Warm white is about 2700K. A CRI closer to 100 gives you a better light quality.
Nope, God still gives us our rulers through divine right. Voting is simply a test of faith.
You'd be better off with high quality analog outputs. TOSLink is limited 2 channels, so any conversion with more channels (assuming the Roku even supports that) requires some sort of encoding scheme and a loss of quality.
