I beleive you mean PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, but I'm pretty sure loads of people think of them as Pains In The Aft region too....
Is it sad the first place I went with this was that show from the 90's M.A.N.T.I.S.?
obviously you should stop browsing as AC, I don't see those sliders and I browse at -1 all the time. I don't have to do anything special to do this either. There's an option in your conversations settings called "Choose your discussion system" that allows you to choose the classic style view, and it's been there ever since the sliders were introduced, took me all of 1 minute to find it when the sliders came out.
So, to correct GP's car analogy, This is like the Ford Motor Company having the service manuals in stock, but refusing to sell them to you unless you've been buying the extra-extra-extended warranty policy year after year
Perhaps it is ok so long as the screen is face down, where it is not viewable by the driver?
In which case, why isn't she denying that the device was in use? Seems like that would be a good element to her defense...
Why is it that so many people don't understand what free speach really means? Freedom of Speach does NOT mean "I can say whatever I #$%%% well please wherever and whenever I want". http://constitution.findlaw.com/amendment1/amendment.html
More waste would probably only encourage them, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-14556755
There's a huge difference between pay-as-you-go and service agreements. Ususally, though, your level of usages makes all the difference in which is better for you. Your House alarm most likely uses very few minutes a month. Prepaid makes sense because you're not paying for unusued minutes. Have a business that makes you spend hours a day on the phone? A monthly unlimited plan makes more sense becasue your price per minute is much lower. Because of that, in the context of this discussion, (being Tmobile's montly agreements versus other providers) pay as you go doesn't really apply.

Sure, but TMobile has loaded their propriarity remix on android on the phone as well, and they charge for that (depsite the fact that you may not want it and are likely to root the phone as soon as you get home anyway...) Oh, and the crapware they make you pay for too. But in all seriousness, T-Mobile is acting as a reseller and there is no way of knowing what google charges them wholesale for the Nexus 4. PLUS google isn't offering the 0% financing as an incentive. (think of the interest as already being rolled in to the purchase price.) Sure you can get it just by driving over to your nearest Google store.... oh, wait, I forgot, they don't pay brick and mortar overhead. All I'm saying is, yes, you can get it cheaper direct from the source. T-Mobile is not the source and they are expected to mark it up. Maybe marking it up by just over 50% is a bit much, but depending on the retail establishment I've seen markups as much as 150%. All that aside though, the thing about T-Mobile's approach to this that is so different from the other big carriers is the fact that you DO have the option to buy one from Google, and pay less on your monthly bill because of that. ATT, Verizon, et al are going to try to charge you the same thing, regardless of if you get the phone from them or from Google. tl;dr- T-Mobile is a reseller, Google is the source. Expect to pay more if you're not willing to put in the legwork.
The impression I get from your previous post is that you feel you are always right and your word is law, and anyone disagreeing with you about anything at all is not just wrong, they're lying. Now, I at least partially agree with your previous comments about being a Thug for detaining a person for asking what you were looking for, but most of the incidents in TFA were not someone asking 'Were you looking for a bomb or something?" they were people saying "hey, there's a bomb in my bag", something completely different. And yes, I looked through them. Ony 3 out of the 30 seemed to have worded the question 'what if there was a bomb' or 'there could have been a bomb'. The remaining 30 examples in TFA were all someone claiming to have a bomb, gun, or similiar item, or to be a terrorist, or to have knowledge of someone else's bomb on the plane. NONE of these qualify for your What are you looking for, a Bomb or something example. In all of those 30 situations, even if you have already searched, the person who said that just confessed to having contraband that you missed, and more complete search is called for . This is undeniable. For all you know, when they later claim 'it was a joke' they could be trying to cover up an inadvertant slip of the tounge. Sure, Zero Tolerance Policies like this don't leave any room for the agent to intrepret what the person meant. That is kind of the point of a Zero Tolerance Policy. There is no risk of a judgement call being the wrong decision.
Except, that the english language does allow for this. It's called using an Adjunctival Noun, or an adjective used as a noun. There's even a Wiki Page for it
You can't rush these things! That has to evolve in the discussion naturally. Wait for someone to call the other a grammer nazi or something.....
This is why I love Slashdot. somewhat intelligent arguements about how to properly call someone a Dumbass. Dumb Ass.
