Or restoring it a day or two later without explanation of whether it was because of the bad PR or a completely screwed up customer support process in replacing a faulty Kindle. http://www.dailydot.com/news/amazon-linn-nygaard-deleted-account-restored/
If you plug the number into a unix timestamp to GMT converter, it returns Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:52:19 GMT, so it looks like it is a time stamp, probably LastModified or something.
What the GP is calling a wire transfer isn't what we civilized bankers call EFT, it is the Western Union telegraph-style transfers. You pay Western Union, get a unique ID code and send that to someone else who with that ID code can receive cash from another Western Union office elsewhere in the world. No destination bank account needed. That's what is referred to in literature and old movies as "wiring someone the money"
What we, the non-US bankers, call wire transfers are interbank transfers as you describe. In the old days before internet/ATM banking, you'd fill in a form and the bank would transfer the funds electronically via the dedicated wire links between them. We now call them EFTs because the entire process is electronic. Banks should just scrap all their historically-derived terminology and settle for something simpler.
As the set of planets grows, theories will have to change as we have based the original ones on a single sample that may or may not be representative of the full set.
It's like basing an entire theory of construction of buildings on De Aar, South Africa and while it may explain most small towns, the suburbs of most cities, it will fall apart completely when you try and explain Manhatten or wooden houses in the US with it.
Why is it a shame? It's about time scientists stop being apologetic and point out directly how stupid some interviewers are during the live interview. I guess some pedants are going to point out ad-hominim or whatever, but in this sort of case where the interviewer is deliberately ignorant, that is what is needed.
Oh well, back to making planes that don't fly. Or catch fire.
Are you talking about the Tesla?
Nah, more likely Boeing's Dreamliner. The Tesla has nothing on Boeing for self-combusting batteries. At least the Tesla needs major damage to trigger one.
Nah, WOPR was more intelligent than the average general and therefore decided the code wasn't 00000000 because that would be stupid.
How often would you try 00000 as the PIN for someone's bank card?
Every single night I see murders and stabbings on TV news, and you are citing WIKIPEDIA to "prove" otherwise? You sound like a fucking retarded gun control advocate trying to convince me to give up my primary source of personal protection.
And you've just proved you fall for the sensationalist media like Musk is talking about.
You probably didn't even look at the first paragraph of the Wikipedia page where it clearly states the numbers are pulled from FBI and BJS reports, both government sources that you can go for primary data if you think Wikipedia is fudging the numbers. You also didn't look at the graphs in the articles, nor the data sources behind the graphs, as there is a clear downward trend in most violent crimes. Wikipedia may be untrustworthy, but there are citations and those can be verified.
Well, the fact that it routinely fails to kill or cause massive illness in the millions of people who do eat it makes it fine in my book.
You soft westerners have too low a squeamishness level. Harden up a bit and enjoy your food rather than worrying that it will kill you when obviously it doesn't.
Fish sauce didn't kill the Romans and it won't kill you.
How is this "from people that don't receive any service from them"? If you don't have a solar panel, you don't pay it. If you have panels, but don't sell back to the utility, you don't pay it. If you have a panel, you sell back to them and they have to provide the infrastructure to do so, then you pay the extra.

Hey delt0r, you haven't forgotten our next pool game at Uncle Mike's Free Beer and Pool bar? I need the next contribution ^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H donation ^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H victory for my retirement ^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H record.
You might owe yourself another slap. It's a reflecting telescope. Grins.
I think the problem here might be the word 'constellation'.
And that they're claiming it outperforms any of the other terrestrial telescopes from 70.1 inches up to the 409 inch Gran Telescopio Canarias, and presumably any bigger ones still being built.
Declutching and dropping to neutral to release the engine from the drive train keeps the brake boosters, power steering and other bits running while you bring the car to a halt. Just killing the engine will leave you with hard steering and even harder braking while trying to get off the road.
On a bike, not sure if there are brake boosters, but it's a safer maneuver to pull the clutch in, pull off the road and stop completely before removing a hand from the handlebars to reach for the key in the middle of the handlebar column to stop the engine.
