Except that when the "No Fly Zones" dynamically pop up (for whatever reason) and you are possibly already flying (ie. a man hunt you know nothing about). Some of these zones are not concrete. I am not advocating flying in them, I am just making a point that blanket laws don't take into account something as described.

I would tend to agree with a skilled pilot being able to recover at a higher altitude. The real issue is with a yaw issue at really low altitude you have little room for recovery. No to mention, when those helis are coming in hot and not hovering for a drop, 90+ mph even a 5 lb object can potentially be damaging.

CC and Debit are one in the same here for the most part when they are tied to your bank account. You might have a choice (if they ask), or they just run as credit/debit depending on the vendor. Either way it pulls from the same account so you shouldn't assume they are using a CC. That said, yes credit is a huge problem in the US.

On a side note cash in Canada (via coins) was great. Looneys and Tooneys were perfect projectiles for strippers.

At my school for my undergrad and grad programs we used a various set of IDEs and OSes. The only time we needed to be locked into a vendor for dev tools was when the class was targeted at that. A large % of the time we could use whatever worked for us.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
