It's intended to look cute as an anti-road rage measure.
Fairly sure that's the usual for Canada also. It was when I was in elementary school.
1. No, it is not controversial. It's nonsense that is rightly rejected. 30 vaccines is a drop in the ocean compared to the onslaught of viruses and bacteria they got exposed to on their way out of the womb, much less what they deal with every day.
2. And most people your age can enjoy having shingles later in life because of that. It really sucks, hence the desire for children to never get chickenpox.
Or they don't have a gas cap at all.
You forgot step 1.5) Engage in "parallel construction" to conceal the warrantless communications monitoring.
As opposed to Harper who's been running up the debt (and was doing so before the economy fucked up) and is now taking an axe to everything useful in government and selling off crown assets to "balance" the budget.
Or university students. I believe UCF=University of Central Florida.
Dealing with uppity university students, I'd presume.
First graders? Unless I'm running into a namespace collision, UCF is University of Central Florida.
Going by Wikipedia's figures, 75kWh of nickel-iron batteries would be weigh about 1500kg and take up about 2.5 cubic metres of space, which is about the size and weight of two fully-loaded refrigerators. And they'd handle 150kW peak load.
Still, who orders a grenade launcher for a school?
I believe grenade launchers can be used to fire canisters of tear gas.
Same thing can happen with paper ballot counting machines, it's all just centralized in the elections office.
Which is why you don't bother with machines, period.
Up here, it's paper ballots, marked with pens, counted using Mk1 eyeballs at the polling station in full view of witnesses from any candidates that wish to send one. The only machines involved in anything are the printers used to make the ballots and the telephones used to call in the stations' results to the Returning Officer.
NO ONE counts paper ballots by hand.
The entire nation of Canada says you're full of shit.
Only if "where you want to go" is in the same city as where you are.
There is no link between autonomously driving cars and car sharing.
Sure there is. With existing car sharing systems or rentals, you either need to go to where the car is via some other means, or someone needs to drive it to you, then drive back to the office, before you can go where you're wanting to go.
With autonomously driving cars, the car can drive itself to you and then you go directly from where you are to where you want to go. It makes it far more practical.
