July 22nd IS PI day in Europe, approximately.
So if I am approximately in Europe, I can celebrate?
If they start poisoning search with for-profit results Google will be quickly reminded that they are not the only search engine in town.
And other search engines (that matter) are?
Just google for search engine.
The straighter the line the bigger the circle....
Yes, and no. If the engines ran for 4-5 hours and they flew in a straight line, then you can rule out anything inside the 4 hour circle. It will be in the ring between 5 hours out, and 4 hours out.
I wonder if I can make a solar powered UV flashing light to scare away animals?
A couple UV LED's and a 555 timer. Hell, you might be able to mod one of those solar-powered outdoor lights.
Or just use a bug zapper. Of course, that might kill off the pollenators as well.
they want everything to be the land of unicorns
Ah! So that's the plan! Replace coal with sweet smelling, long burning unicorn dung. Brilliant!
What are all the families that heat their homes with coal going to do?
Maybe use an alternative? Wood pellets, pressed fuel bricks, etc.
Choice is a good thing.
...until it comes time to provide support:
SupportDesk(SD): Okay, click on Start.
Customer(C):Um... I don't see Start. Where is it?
SD: It's usually in the bottom left corner. What do you have there?
C: I've got a clock.
SD: Um... Okay, what's in the top left corner?
C: it's sort of a multi-colored circle
SD: Okay, click that and then click System
C:I don't see System
SD:What about a Utilities?
C: No. There's nothing but icons.
SD: I see. Is there a gear icon?
SD:What about tools, like a wrench or screwdriver?
C: No. I've gone one that looks like a car with the hood open, one that has pulleys and a belt, and another that has colored squares and slider controls. It looks like the transporter console on Star Trek.
SD: If you move the mouse pointer over the icons but don't click does a description pop up?
SD: I want you to check the description pop-up of each of those icons. Do any of them say System? C: I've got two. The candle icon says System Settings, and the kitten icon with the red forbidden circle, you know, like on no smoking signs? Well that icon says System configuration.

Sometimes having conformity is a good thing.
