No matter how you look at it. When it comes down to it. You have to trust your pilots. There's just no getting around that...

could explain why he could be doing these irrational actions.
Possibly. But it would not explain the rational actions of a co-pilot in distress. Such as, I don't know, communicating with ATC that he was feeling light headed and was turning on auto pilot.
i guess the door could have malfunctioned AND the copilot had a stroke
The odds of a 28 year old stroking out are slim. But the problem here is probability. The statistical probability of, the copilot having a stroke, while either falling against a switch or a mechanical failure of a security door, at the same time (while not having numbers, or being a statistician, Hey, It's slashdot!) I would think would preclude anything but deliberate intention.
Or a compromised Fedex/UPS/USPS. Flash a badge at a driver and tell him to deliver THIS package instead. This Op isnt going to skip a beat, and CISCO get's a few extra bucks.
Just think of the absolute treasure trove of personal data... that google has OCR'd, indexed, and MONETIZED! Damn. I'm with you. Fuq em.
This is it exactly. It's the MERCHANT that pays charge backs, no one else. Which, to be clear, is certainly NOT Apple.
This. Not to mention any number of DMCA violations for exploiting vulnerabilities in the 2G protocol.
shouldn't be trying to anticipate who's going to do what. Jesus, we can't stop DDOS attacks NOW! Network Intrusion detection and analysis is complex to the point of the arcane. This smells like a conveneint way to de-anonimize those pesky bitcoin trans. Because, hey, god forbid we should figure out a way to VOTE with those things.
I don't have a probelm with FedEX not delivering a CNC mill. They can choose what kind of liability to accept, or not as the case may be. I don't have an issue with Cody and the DD folks selling CNC mills. I think the issue at hand is fedex claiming they will not be delivering this item under the pretense that it may or may not be illegal to put said mills into the hands of citizens. Which, of course it is legal to make firearms, for yourself. This is a total "We have NO BALLS to stand up for what we believe, so we'regoing to spread some FUD."
And this is what should be pissing everyone off...
