When Starship Troopers was performed at Rifftrax, they couldn't alter the movie in any way. To get around this, they had the cameras cut away to a silly diversion (Gorilla-grams!), while a non-offending corner of the scene played out in stage right. If you were live in the Belcourt theatre, you got to see the film in all its glory.
Forget it, he's rolling.
Your subject line is 100% on the mark: Failure is the expected & intended result.
Low test scores that result from this test make a great lever to use to privatize schools and/or get rid of teachers that can't get their kids to pass this charade. Corporate America gets to cluck their tongues at the crop of obvious dolts-in-ye-making an lobby their pet congressperson to allow ever more H1-B and offshored/temp labor to compensate.
I'd say this is working as designed.
Pft, lets see a fighter jockey parallel park a F-16.
Agree completely. I must point out (again) that the automatic appeals process costs taxpayers at least $2 million dollars, therefore life in prison/no parole is economically cheaper for taxpayers.
I fear that this would be fixed by getting rid of the appeals instead of doing away with capital punishment entirely.
Mod this up for the worlds first twerking strawman!
Amber keeps getting into strangers cars. When will she ever learn?
Openness to all & the free exchange of ideas and information with curious people doesn't seem compatible with the exclusion of any one group.

Looking at the sample telegram, you can tell that theres at least one diehard Twilight Zone fan in that company.
Come to think of it, he never did return his Slashdot interview, did he?
I saw that lecture by the lawyer and cop also. The trick that you describe is that the cop & suspect walk into an interrogation room, he starts pulls out a tape recorder and starts doing paperwork. The silence and nonchalance
Once this guy knew who he was doing business with, it gave him two crappy options:
1) Turn informant for the government. His customers would know in a moment that he flipped once they see that he's moved out of his house and suddenly has the money to open a fancy storefront with all the bells and whistles (bugged to the gills). Once they figure that out, he and his family are as good as dead.
2) Take your chances in court. Since the federal government moved the venue to Kansas, that'll practically secure a conviction for an LA Latino who can easily be painted as a gangster living large while working on spec for the drug lords. Also, this sets an example for those who refuse uncle sams generous offer to turn informant.
This is a great April fools joke. A slashdotter with a GIRLFRIEND! Makes the man and dinosaur thing look downright plausible.
