Although it is technically legal to discriminate against someone because of their tats, it will take about 10 seconds for someone to claim a "tramp stamp for religious reasons" and it will be lawsuit-city.
Exactly. I can teach you to do your job, but I can't teach your tats to go away. Until now?
If this works, you'll see employers requiring their employees to remove tats.
Unfortunately, you won't see employers doing this...
You'll see tatted people still not getting the job in the first place.
This just gives them a way to remove the ink; once they figure out they aren't getting any call backs.
In the early days of car alarms, that little 'symphony' of:
dee-doo-dee-doo, whooop-whooop, beep-beep-beep-beep-beep, etc.
Also, actual physical bells and chimes for things like churches, ice-cream trucks.
Seems like now they just play recordings of bells over speakers.
Guarav Khanna, a black hole physicist at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in the US, has managed to build a powerful and extremely cheap supercomputer using old PlayStation 3s (PS3s), and he’s used it to publish several papers on black holes.
His research focusses on finding gravitational waves, which are curvatures in space-time that ripple out from a violent astrophysical event, such as two black holes colliding. They were first predicted by Einstein’s theory of general relativity, but no one has been able to observe them."

You may be looking for a 'Lunchbox' style case.
I've seen these in military applications, it's a portable case (like a laptop, but thicker) that will let you use full-size ATX mobos.
One model (below) actually lets you fold three displays out of it (The "FieldGo M3")
This would give you the performance and cooling of a desktop, and (almost) the portability of a laptop.
Why does anyone need a self-driving car?
This is possibly the weirdest argument against self-driving cars - and yet it pops up time and again on this topic.
What if I told you I would pay for a chauffeur driven limousine for you? It would pick you up every morning and take you to and from work. You could shave, or sleep, or surf the net while he took you to work. He would drop you at the door, and you'd never again have to look for parking.
If you wanted to go to a club or party, you could get as toasted as you like and your chauffeur would drive you home safely.
Now, just replace "chauffeur driven limousine" with "self-driving car".
Don't use progressives or bi-focals. Do this:
Take a tape measure and measure the exact distance to your monitors when working.
Go to an optometrist and get a written prescription for that exact distance (bring the tape measure with you*) including the "PD", pupillary distance, at that range. Do not buy the glasses from them.
Go to Zenni Optical
Add the standard anti-reflective coating for $4.95
For about $12 you have custom computer glasses.
* Yes, I actually do this. And, yes; I'm a nerd.
There was a 24 hour library information service (800-Hoot-Owl) where you could call in any question and a reference librarian would give you an answer.
If they couldn't find the answer right away, they would take your number and call you back once they found it.
Update: terrorists claim to have 2 bombs in the cafe, 2 more in the financial district.
Say they will release 1 hostage if ISIS flag brought to cafe.
5 hostages released/escaped so far.
...How do you automatically detect and delete duplicate images?
The Bridge Inspector's Reference Manual does sound like a good way to avoid masturbation.
Are you kidding?!
This month's Bridge Inspector's Reference Manual has a fold-out of an unpainted 340 ft. Bowstring Arch Truss Bridge.
...being flogged around by feminists...
I found this strangely arousing.
Even I would have a hard time finding enough porn to fill that.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Amateur.
No, seriously, check out 'Amateur'.
