I am all for drivers being polite, but they should not confuse other drivers with breaking right-of-way rules. A lot of people seem to not understand 4 way stop rules as it is, without people throwing a wrench I the whole process.
Not only is it inconvenient, but it's also a hazard and a liability risk. Other drivers who aren't necessarily in a position see the exchange of body language and waves yielding right of way when none was present are expecting events to happen in a certain way and get confused if they don't. And if, for example, a pedestrian in a crosswalk waves at you to go when they had right of way but then has second thoughts and jumps out in front of you, guess who's at fault when the police investigate.
But you can also have fun anonymously...
Make an arrangements with a car deal to give away cars to people you think deserve it as you encounter them.
Pay the check for an entire restaurant full of people when you leave.
Watch for local foreclosures and intercede on the behalf of those you think are getting a raw deal.
Fund a promising local business for two years.
Set up a charity on the quiet to fly bums to Hawaii (or any other island they'll be unlikely to be able to migrate away from on their own) in twos and threes and see how long until someone notices (if you can keep it up unnoticed for a year it'll be a serious problem by that point).
Anonymously mail small suitcases full of cash to random local politicians to see what happens. (optional: anonymously tip off the media amount said suitcase)
Buy a few hundred drones and then every few weeks send one on a few mile flight to land on the same persons doorstep at 2am (taking a different route and launched from a different place each time). See how long you can keep it up before they either flip out and/or start a side business selling gently used drones.
The real question is, Would our troops accept the government telling them to mount an offensive against the populace?
Probably not, but the key here is that we're talking about an offensive. Dragging a few key actors out of a peaceful protest is a completely different thing from dragging those same people out of an armed (but still currently peaceful) protest.
you still couldn't draw enough power from the grid to get enough energy to saturate the battery in that time.
That problem has long since been solved in other applications, generally in the form of inertial energy storage. You spin up a flywheel with a big electric motor (or sometimes the motor itself is heavy enough that it's basically its own flywheel) with whatever constant load the grid will support. Energy is pulled back out using a generator (either attached to the flywheel via mechanical clutch, or by electrically reversing the leads on the motor).
Memory leaks are always the fault of the developer, unless they're hardware based.
And the first rule of software development is that it's always a hardware problem until proven otherwise!
The poll workers look at faces. You do that twice, one hour before closing and see how it goes. It doesn't work, and nobody does it.
Do you even read, I said "different polling place". Also, the poll workers here literally leave the clipboards on the tables for you to pick a name off of. I wouldn't even need to do the play dumb thing.
Next time you go to vote, do this. Then rinse and repeat, ten times within the hour, and see if it works.
No thanks, I'm not going to commit voter fraud to prove a point to you, plus you'd say I was making it up anyway. What I was suggesting you try is to simply get them to show you the list of names to pick out your own, as much of your argument seems to hinge on poll workers keeping those names secret.
My bet is that it wouldn't work; you'd be recognized and fail at making much of a difference at all.
Why would people at different polling places recognize me? Also, you don't even need to vote multiple times to make it work as voter fraud. Just teach some non-english speaking non-citizens to point at a name on a list (I guarantee a poll worker will show it to them to point at a name if they can't understand what's being said. What else can they do? Someone like you might accuse them of disfranchising a minority voter if they don't let them vote) and you've got a small army of people who will vote your way.
The moon is a planet just like the Earth, only it is even deader.
