I'm going to go with at least slightly dense.

Since when has "yes, you can search my phone for evidence of criminal activity to use against others" given the police full access to use any data on the phone, even completely unrelated to a crime, for any purpose? Are they now allowed to go through the phone of someone caught for possession and text his wife about his possible mistress? Awfully big can of worms you've got the opener on.

You're doing it wrong. Unreal expectations for sex? More like idea generator according to my wife.

Also, based on some of the relationships I've seen, porn is the reason they still have a family. If not for porn as an outlet, they would have long ago ditched the wife (who let herself go) and kids for the fun and bubbly 20-something at work.

Actually, in many areas you don't need building permits or permission to do anything you'd like. It has to pass safety inspection in order for you to sell it, but you can build and live in your own house. Most areas want their cut in taxes and permit fees if you build, however.

Just the US and Russia have almost 16k warheads between them. Your sense of "real lasting harm" is skewed severely if you believe the fallout from all of those being launched won't significantly alter the biological capability of the Earth. Sure, most of them will be targeted at specific sites instead of spreading out equally, but it will still cause horrific damage and may trigger enough atmospheric dust to kill most life on Earth.

I would say the same thing, but there are several countries that can effectively impose their will anywhere within the Moon's orbit and a handful that could manage anything within the solar system. That said, having navigational control of a big rock on the edge of a gravity well may prove to be a hefty bargaining chip.

Your officers were full of shit. Having a private channel list is perfectly legal. Your content is perfectly readable: you're changing channels. "QSY channel 4" is no different than "QSY Bob's repeater." Just because an outsider wouldn't know who Bob is, doesn't mean you're using a code or cipher.

In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables.
