So they are cowards who were dumb enough to think this wasn't genuinely dangerous?
You have a very strange definition of 'coward.' I'm guessing they're more concerned with the delays this will pile onto the already delayed commercial flights.
Up until now, they had no idea that a rocket could like, you know, explode?
It didn't explode.
They lost rights to everything they came up with
see, here you're missing "while employed there"
in perpetuity as a standard contract of their employment. I view such heavy handed contracts quite dimly as a result of unbalanced employment negotiation.
Buy a computer because you like the shape of the case. It's how you guarantee quality.
I love my wife too much to put this thing in our home.
Linux is free because it is open source, but that can have its own associated restrictions (associated with the time input required to it to a certain level of functionality, depending on your Linux expertise.)
Reductio ad absurdum.
The difference between your XPS is the Black Macbook is that the guy was still using the macbook for daily tasks. Your XPS is probably on a shelf somewhere.
I guess my comment was a bit misleading in one way: I don't think Macbooks are necessarily a bad value or were a bad value circa 2006. But let me clarify:
1) My 2006 Dell XPS M1210 is my daily driver. It started life with XP and has exclusively run Ubuntu the last 3 years.
2) I had to replace the power adapter and disc drive under warranty, and upgraded from the original 80GB hard drive to a 500GB hard drive three or four years ago.
3) Otherwise, I can't remember replacing anything on it. The rubber feet on the bottom have fallen off and the left-click button on the trackpad is mushy. I'm convinced it's just some crumbs in the cracks, but I'm too lazy to fix it and have been content to just tap the touchpad to click.
4) I'm still using the original 9-cell battery it shipped with. The 6-cell I bought at the same time died, but the 9-cell is still barely usable, providing maybe 40 minutes' usage. Not great but not bad for 8 years old.
5) Again--I'm not trying to say that Macbooks are a bad buy, but my wife's 2007 15" Macbook has had far more expensive problems (to be fair, it's still with us too).
A better idea is to tax wealth. That will encourage people to spend, and drive the economy forward.
Which will ensure the lower and middle class are never able to save up for a house, car, or other investment. Because savings will automatically dwindle by virtue of being there.
Considering that my Black MacBook (2006) lasted eight years, it was a good investment.
My XPS from 2006 is still with me, but the equivalent Macbook would have been far more expensive. What is your point?
The two statements about the more expensive the wedding the greater the chance of divorce and that the larger the ceremony you have the less likely you are to end up divorced seem mutually exclusive to me.
How expensive? Many churches offer an essentially free venue to members. $4/ head for a taco man, get over feeling like you need to get everyone drunk, and all you have left are fixed costs. Our 225-person wedding set us and some family members back in the neighborhood of $8-9k. And we splurged on some things, in our opinion. $4k is not unreasonable.
1) Key activation force. You have to push quite hard to activate those key switches. That is unergonomic and contributes to developing RSI in many individuals. A good keyboard should have a light key activation.... (snip)
3) The noise. Those springs are loud. Makes it very annoying to use in an office environment, and unsuitable for quite environments like a studio. A good keyboard has dampened keys that don't make noise.
These are both arbitrary and it's not difficult to find people with preferences either way. I'm sure many skilled typists disagree with you on both counts.
39. Have you ever experienced physical sexual harassment, unwanted sexual contact, or sexual contact in which you could not or did not give consent or felt it would be unsafe to fight back or not give your consent at an anthropological field site? (If you have had more than one experience, the most notable to you.)
The problem, again, is a terribly worded question. Are we to again assume physical should extend through the commas?
I don't see the leeway you do. "Sexual contact" is physical. There's simply no other way to read those two works used together.
