This logic, you "choose" to buy a phone with an irreplacible battery or you "choose" to not find that job, is made by someone who thinks he is earned elite status, someone who has a deal which protects him from the risks of a consumer or a job-seeker, and wishes to project blame to protect his entitlement, his sense of being better than someone else.
Reading at -1 is like having your soul sucked out and replaced by liquid nitrogen.
Not to mention the fantastic Dune/Star Trek crossover. The best scenes are where Nurse Chapel seduces Baron Harkonnen (and much hilarity ensues) and Paul Atreided and Captain Kirk compare whether the Weirding way or the monkey kick are more effective. Best catchphrase "dammit Jim, I'm a doctor, not a Bene Tleilax facedancer."
But if you don't puff up your offspring with enough praise early one, how will they have the iron-cast confidence to windbag their way to the top in todays bullshit world? Again, what use is true intelligence if you don't have the bellicosity to shout down all gainsayers?
I do think kettles are getting more common in the U.S., but in the '90s they were almost unknown. Another factor imo is that microwaves have been ubiquitous in American kitchens for decades, and are commonly used to heat water, so there's already a common alternative to the stove. They're not a great option for boiling water, but they're a common way (in the U.S.) of making near-boiling water for brewing tea or making ramen.
Where in the EU are you washing clothes? Most people here (Scandinavia) live in apartment buildings that have a laundry room with industrial-strength washers/dryers, which take only 25-30 minutes to wash.
I think most people just add (cold) water and then microwave it, even though the instructions say to heat the water separately.
I don't think I ever saw an electric kettle in the US. People who drink coffee make it in a coffee pot, and people who drink tea are deported to Europe.
There are manufacturers selling 2000-2200 W. vacuum cleaners.
I can't wait for those to be gone. Not because of the energy usage really, but because those monsters are incredibly loud.
In that case your comment would be accurately defined as a 'straw man' as it did not relate to the incident in question. The counter comment brought it back in line to what actually occurred and 'OH no what about the Wookies" means nothing. It is a civil matter and as such should have only been treated in the civil courts. The actual action only fully demonstrates the current corruption of democracies and the justice system by psychopathic corporate executives.
Where are simulator completely and utterly fails should be obvious to everyone, it does not test environmental analysis at all. The environment is not detected, analysed and correlated, it is simply fed into the program and so only half the system is tested, not the whole system.
The system should be tested on the road under normal conditions, from rush hour to night driving with a driver ready to take over and at lest two randomly chosen independent observer. Things that need to be tested, missing or worn line markings, road works, debris on road including plastic bags in the wind, car doors opening into traffic stream, vehicles straddling lanes, emergency vehicle response with regards to other vehicles failing to react appropriately et al.
I'm sorry that such hell holes persist in 21st century USA, but that has nothing to do with my comment. We have fiber criss-crossing the entire state, including the remotest northern towns. Yes, the money may have originated primarily from the cities, but it's being spent statewide. And we have impoverished areas, But public money can only pull fibers just so far. We can't drag one up every driveway in the state.
If you want to fix your state, start by voting to raise taxes by an order of magnitude across rich and poor alike. If you're always led by selfish people who won't ever raise taxes, nothing will continue to happen.
It's obviously, The Big O.
Good luck with that.
We all (UK, US) fund the Syrian "rebels" aka ISIS with our tax dollars. The same terrorist organization responsible for the beheading - receiving money and training directly and indirectly through us and from our close allies. If mainstream media have "suppressed" this little detail (well, not mentioned very much), then suppressing the video so that not many see that either won't be too hard.
It's almost like large organizations have voting rights.
What do you mean "almost"?
They have more voting rights than you, me, or anyone.
And you know what? We've got "temporarily embarrassed millionaires" who will fight you tooth-and-nail to defend that, in spite of their own interests.
