No. He is. They are just his kind of clowns, so they don't look funny to him. That is the only difference.
traditionally people have not taken their mines with them when they moved on
This is your sole legitimate objection. The problem still isn't the mines, it is the people.
Actually, that made perfect sense. AND I thought it was funny. I have mod points, but wanted to let you know beyond +1 Funny or +1 Insightful
But it is much more convenient to blame Jenny than MMR vaccine having a lifespan!
Mines are a tool. Improper use of tools is human problem, not the tool's problem. Mines have kept our people safe while at the same time cause all sorts of problem for others. I get the point, but the reality is, some tools are very dangerous in the wrong hands, are perfectly safe in the right hands. Yet you blame the tool, rather than those that wield them. I find that illogical.
Obviously you didn't actually READ what I wrote. You aren't anti gun, you're anti citizens having guns. You are all for government having them. It isn't a matter what purpose guns serve, it is blanket statement that you don't like guns, except the guns in the hands of tyrant governments.
And pointing to Europe is very interesting, as Russia is invading Ukraine. I wonder how Russia would fare if Ukrainians had guns. Yeah, guns in citizen's hands isn't about gun saftey or murder, it is about letting government run roughshod over citizen's rights without the citizens having a recourse.
But of course, you're okay with governments having guns and lots of them. Gun Safe laws aren't the problem, people who don't understand that the last stand against tyranny is a well armed populace. Something Ukraine is suffering right now.

Ridiculously high is right.... 11 nines uptime works out to be less than a millisecond per year. At that level if you're going to need to specify allowable ping times.
In reality, Google only offers 99.9% per month (99% for "reduced availability", I'm not sure what these prices are for) and the value of the guarantee is pathetic: they credit (not even refund) you a maximum of half your bill that month if availability is =95%. They could be down a full day and only knock 25% of you bill next month. That can barely be considered an SLA.
Also, given that consumer internet is 100% (to be generous!) you're basically guaranteed better uptime in the common case (accessing your data at home) storing it locally. If you're hosting via, say, ownCloud for use by your phone then, sure, Google Drive may have better uptime.
Anyways, given the premium over a hard drive as the parent pointed out, you just buy (and power) two and run as RAID0. You could even buy a spare or two which could be used as a backup until one of the primaries failed.
We're well and truly fucked!!
When Feinstein was okay with NSA spying on Americans we were fucked. Now that that chicken came home and roosted upon her doorstep, she is suddenly "offended". Where was that outrage when it didn't affect her. She is a hypocrite of the highest order. ANYONE who supports her at this point is the problem, regardless of how she votes on every other issue.
You don't hate guns. You hate the people who own guns. Hating guns is illogical as hating chairs or hats or the air you breathe. They are inanimate objects and if you "hate" them, then you're clearly unable to deal with reality.
That being said, you don't hate guns, you hate "we the people" having guns. As a liberal, forcing people to join your collective under threat of government guns is what you depend upon. Your support of Government owning guns, is very likely. You likely support army, police and other national security people owning and bearing guns, even to protect the President (Republican OR Democrat) and high ranking officials like Feinstein, Reid and so on.
I have YET to meet a "gun hating democrat" that wants to disarm EVERYONE (including the government). Therefore, you don't hate guns. You hate average people having guns. And that speaks higher volumes about your hypocrisy than anything else.
For one, more plants would just spring up. Even if part of the buyout was "you may never go into coal again," someone else may. The economic structure of energy is why coal is still king, and buying out the current players won't change that.
For two, the cost of shutting that industry down does not cover the cost of starting new energy industries to replace it. Or were we just going to go without 37% of our electricity?
For three, coal works efficiently and predictably at far smaller scale than most energy technologies. Many of the locations coal services today cannot be practically services by other generation methods.
Slide to unlock has a physical analog, I use all the time on gates and doors. Slide to unlock/lock is OBVIOUS because it is a logical extension of a physical object. IT would be like patenting "Push to open" or flick up to turn on, flick down to turn off (light switch) or any number of common tasks we do in the physical world.
The problem is, people get STUPID when they see "on a computer". It is like they can't function without being hand held the whole time the moment they sit in front of one. I can't tell you how many times "my monitor isn't working" is simply they never pressed the power button. GAHHHHHHHH
Or you can download another copy from Torrent (since you're already a thief) whenever you want to watch it.
Regardless of whether or not 20TB is hording / excessive / inefficient, what it almost certainly is is replaceable. Let's face it, you aren't CERN, most of you data is probably media that you can reacquire with relative ease. It's not being stored because it's irreplaceable it's being stored because it's convenient. A RAID isn't too bad, but add in managing backups and where has that convenience gone? If it costs $10+/month to backup your ripped/downloaded movies, why not just sign up for Netflix?
Just make a list of all the replaceable data (e.g. videos you have the original disc for) you have and then buy an external hard disk / Blurays to back up the rest. If you lose your RAID, well, it'll be annoying to rebuild, but you built it once... (Besides, I doubt you could restore 20TB over residential internet less time!)
Plenty of people work across midnight. It is called swing or graveyard shifts (depending on start time
