Judging gender by a name is about as dumb as you can get. John Wayne would have kicked their butts.
A new generation of parents no longer felt it important to teach their kids the work ethic through hard, manual work.
Or maybe they felt that having their kids spending their summers slaving in fields for piss poor wages wasn't a good thing anymore. Don't know about you, but if I can find a way for my kids to have a better summer job than that, I will. Hopefully it will be something that will be in the same field they eventually want to work in.
There are worse things than picking berries - I paid for my first year of university by picking pine cones for the MNR to eventually turn into tree seedlings for reforestation. Would I want my kids to do that? Heck no.
Wouldn't dropping it on the far side of the moon work better? Eventually, we may find a good use for that stuff. (What could possibly go wrong?)
Wasn't that pretty much the plot from Die Hard 2?
Cue the guys with stick on extra zeros, of maybe just an extra 1 or 2 for the front...
Recall the bear from the movie AI?
That one got solved by the physics guys a while back. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T...
Go for the eyes Boo!
Isn't that the point of driverless cars? Providing plausible deniability for road based bumping off of annoyances?
Are we going to have limits on what is an acceptable noise? Otherwise, I can see a race between the fart generators and the "When sally met harry fake orgasm" clips.
A race to the bottom.
That worked out so well for Saturn didn't it?
With only 5% of the world's population, the U.S. can only expect about 5% of Americans to be born here.
So did Spider Robinson. Go read "The Time Traveller" in Callahan's Crosstime Saloon.
Just make sure to leave Sinanju alone. Don't want to piss off Chiun.
I'm pretty sure sony ships out it's films via network to the theaters these days. When a new release comes out, and they dump a terabyte or so to a few thousand theatres... 100 TB could easily be missed or ignored.
