40 years is already more than what's sensible. Imagine I invented something that ensures I'll get more money than I could sensibly spend per month. Where's my incentive to invent again instead of spending the rest of my life in a hammock?
The outcome is fines paid by one part of government to another, but it does focus the leadership to get it right
Or discourage reporting any incidents. If losing a container of Anthrax means you get punished, then you have strong incentives to not tell anyone and hope you'll find it, rather than rise alarm and put the place in a lockdown.
All to stop a flu that never exceeded 5 infections contained to Fort Dix, and only 1 death directly attributable to the flu.
A flu with a 20% mortality rate amongst young men in top shape? Yeah, no reason to panic...
But for now, crossing a human with a flower may not result in a talking flower, though it still could be a pretty looking flower.
For some reason, this very scenario is present in two games of the Sims series.
Let me just say that, if you offer a trip to space as the companion event to drinking this water, I will drink and I will go.
What you need, son, is a homeopathic cure for your gullibility.
In Tucson 10%ish of the drinking water comes from reclaimed water (aka filtered sewage). Makes sense in an area with not a lot of fresh water resources. Also in those areas you can have different kinds. You can purchase a non-potable (not for consumption) water source for irrigation. Again, reclaimed water, but it undergoes less filtering and thus is cheaper. Plenty of larger places get a hookup to keep their watering costs down.
It is a very sensible way of doing things and you actually have more control of purity than water that comes out of the ground.
Evolution doesn't deal with life or death
You lack a realistic understanding of evolution, I'm afraid. Time for some remedial study.
Sure, if your only goal is efficiency. But if it is, you're boring.
You're the one who claimed any inefficiency means "no progress". So I guess I'm arguing with a boring troll. Bye.
We value life, they value heaven.
According to yourself, you value an personal ancestral connection to the land. And you also said you think it's the same for Hamas. So please don't try to twist things into a "good vs. evil" or even "sane vs. insane" narrative. It's not.
I have a personal connection to this land. So does somebody else. Hence, war!
I'm starting to wonder if the best thing anyone could do for the Holy Land and its residents was to detonate enough dirty bombs there to force everyone to decide whether living there is worth more than their own lives, rather than just their neighbours.
Oh well, with any luck climate change will clear the place through desertification.
Don't spend the whole comment section arguing about causes and consequences of the conflict, who started it, who deserves is, etc.
Stay on topic and discuss the technical aspects of the missile system, at least that is what should be discussed here.
Why? Surely analysing the mechanisms of society and their failure modes are far more deserving of the title "stuff that matters" than the mechanisms of systems used in the resulting mess. Or do you have some kind of ulterior motive to keep this conflict from being discussed or analysed? Do you, for example, fear that your side - whichever it is - might come up looking bad?
And if that's the case, perhaps you should look beyond whatever gains you think your side might have from the conflict to the long-term benefits of establishing a less violent and chaotic world.
I just know there's a homeopathy joke in there somewhere...
Well a lot of money was spent to no particular effect. That's kind of like change.
