They were a civilisation of dentists, and they kept their trove of Mercury around 'cause it's used in fabbing the amalgalm for fillings.
An enlisted man would have received 10 years in Leavenworth.
Or eleven years in Twelveworth,
or five to ten in Woolworth.
Hey, someone had to quote it!
If it was a new app, it would have to be called Therst, Thyrst, or Thrst.
Seems to me that, at least on
In a post about half a page down from this article, Norway is going to kill off FM in favor of digital (DAB) as the only broadcast method.
So there you are.
Chess games are getting longer. Chess games have been getting steadily longer since 1970, increasing from 75 ply (37 moves) per game in 1970 to a whopping 85 ply (42 moves) per game in 2014. "This trend could possibly be telling us that defensive play is becoming more common in chess nowaday," writes Olsen. "Even the world's current best chess player, Magnus Carlsen, was forced to adopt a more defensive play style (instead of his traditional aggressive style) to compete with the world's elite."
The first-move advantage has always existed. White consistently wins 56% and Black only 44% of the games every year between 1850 and 2014 and the first-move advantage becomes more pronounced the more skilled the chess players are. "Despite 150+ years of revolutions and refinement of chess, the first-move advantage has effectively remained untouched. The only way around it is to make sure that competitors play an even number of games as White and Black."
Draws are much more common nowadays. Only 1 in 10 games ended in a draw in 1850, whereas 1 in 3 games ended in a draw in 2013. "Since the early 20th century, chess experts have feared that the over-analysis of chess will lead "draw death," where experts will become so skilled at chess that it will be impossible to decisively win a game any more." Interestingly chess prodigy and world champion Jose Raul Capablanca said in the 1920's that he believed chess would be exhausted in the near future and that games between masters would always end in draws. Capablanca proposed a more complex variant of chess to help prevent "draw death," but it never really seemed to catch on.
After you've generated your passphrase, the next step is to commit it to memory.You should write your new passphrase down on a piece of paper and carry it with you for as long as you need. Each time you need to type it, try typing it from memory first, but look at the paper if you need to. Assuming you type it a couple times a day, it shouldn't take more than two or three days before you no longer need the paper, at which point you should destroy it. "Simple, random passphrases, in other words, are just as good at protecting the next whistleblowing spy as they are at securing your laptop," concludes Lee. "It's a shame that we live in a world where ordinary citizens need that level of protection, but as long as we do, the Diceware system makes it possible to get CIA-level protection without going through black ops training."
You guys are missing the obvious solution: make like the Japanese and their artificial islands. Fill in the Bering Strait and just build a paved road on top of the ridgeline you just created between SIberia and AK.
One good reason to discourage the pasive voice is that it leads the reader to believe things "just happened," rather than emphasizing the causative agent.
"War broke out" vs "A small band of vocal rabble chose to separate from England rather than pay excessive tax on tea"
He clearly suggested spending less on Defense Dept and more on socialist anarchist anti-American [[sarcasm]] !
We can't have that now, can we?

Yes, LEDs are far more efficient and use less electricity yada yada. However, it's pretty much guaranteed that this will not lead to cost savings.
Historically, every time a cheaper lighting technology came along, from candles to oil lamps to gas lamps to Edison bulbs to CFLs, people simply increase the amount of lighting and the length of time (into the night) that they keep the house lit up. I see nothing to suggest that conversion to LEDs will change this trend.

Not to mention a USA birth certificate.
