I rather expect that "significantly increased risk" means that it would be statistically significant (0.05 chance that it is due to randomness), not that many lives would be saved out of a population of 100. And, of course, there would be the increased risks from criminalizing large portions of all drivers.
BAC affects lower ages more because they have less experience and muscle memory. A stone sober teenage driver is still a danger to himself (less of a danger to herself, due to male testosterone poisoning) whenever conditions fall below perfect, even without the effects of intoxication.
Well, the Feds didn't have the power to force states to tow the line until Congress passed a law to withhold highway funds to any state that didn't, for that one case.
If your Congresscritter votes for a repeat of this law, it is YOUR OWN FAULT.
You in the 2nd person plural sense, of course. Not blaming any particular reader, not even the parent.
"The agency noted that its Edible Insect Program is also examining the potential of arachnids, such as spiders and scorpions."
Would you eat a bowl of spiders once a day for a month, to get 2 million dollars?
Well, dead ones, maybe. Alive, it would be too much like the Mayor of Sunnydale in season 3 of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, without the benefits. Also, guarantee that the spiders are safe to eat. Supposedly, the source of Ebola virus is a disease of some African spiders or mites.
To be fair, there was also nothing known quite like AIDS until someone decided it'd be a good idea to start eating the local monkeys and it crossed over into humans.
And the Ebola virus is probably native to some species of spider, which is why it is so virulent (no Darwinian pressure to avoid killing the human hosts, as they are just a minor portion of the available hosts).
And how much did it cost to boost Astronaut Hadfield to the ISS?
Why can't I pick "both incompetent AND malicious"? Actually, given that this occurred during a Democratic administration, also toadying to those in power?
There have been cases in Republican administrations of the IRS investigating organizations supporting the opposition at a greater rate than chance; since the IRS doesn't have a massive turnover in personnel the reason is most probably to brown-nose those in power, rather than assume that the IRS was suddenly a hotbed of Republican partisanship.
So, now we have the suggestion that those members of the IRS responsible for this were incompetent, malicious toadies and boot-lickers.
And to quote Senator Howard Baker, during the Watergate Hearings, "What did the President know, and when did he know it?" As long as it wasn't shortly after it occurred, he can be "shocked, shocked I say, to find that there is gambling going on in this establishment."
Countless number of books lost forever when the Library of Alexandria was burnt down.
Of course, by your logic, there are also numerous copies of The Necronomicon, as well as at least two of the Al Asif (the Arabic, untranslated source of The Necronomicon) in various libraries. Just to extend the joke, most have been borrowed by a member of the Whateley family and are years overdue. I also understand that librarians have added a few copies of The King In Yellow (the mythical play, not the collection of stories about it) around the country. In a few years, expect to see works by Nickolaus Flamel (sp?) start showing up, as Harry Potter fans get in charge of things.
Librarians with too much time on there hands leave all sorts of in-jokes around.
No, he dunked them to see if they were witches, and they floated, proving that they were really geese.
Or some such Holy Grail-ish nonsense.
I was born, raised, and educated in the USA, and I never heard this "U.S. Defender of Freedom" thing. We stayed out of WWII because large portions of the US wanted to avoid a repeat of WWI, just as the Oxford Student Debating Society solemnly resolved that there was no reason whatsoever to die for King Or Country just a year or two before Churchill and Co. shamed poor Chamberlain into demanding that Germany not invade Poland or suffer Britain's (and France's) wrath. After Japan attacked, we might have known that Germany needed to be included in the war but Germany was nice enough to declare war on us, before we had to try to convince Congress to declare war on a previously non-belligerent power just because we didn't like them.
We did not declare war on the Vichy regime because we thought that nominal neutrality might work better (and we decided to treat them as if they were the Ghetto Councils that the Nazis set up before they liquidated the Ghettos, ie in charge like Holly Genarro in Die Hard). We "knew" about the death camps, but no one believed the reports because they were made by commy-symps and Jews, and the idea of killing your best and smartest workers was too absurd, just as the Red Cross was notified of the Katryn Forest massacre of Polish officers by the Soviets, but they didn't believe it because the Germans reported it.
Face it, pre-emptive war, even against a righteous target, has lost a bit of its luster in the last decade. If the USA *did* decide to do something about NK, large portions of the world, including Europe, would complain about US Cowboy Diplomacy and Warmongering.
BTW, would Poland have objected so much if the Germans asked them to join in a crusade against the Godless Communists on their Eastern border, instead of what happened?
There are MS-DOS emulators for your embossing machine. The problem is if your embossing machine require parallel ports, rather than RS-232, since nobody seems to use those anymore. I cannot think how to help you, there.
BTW, what is on your $120,000 electron microscope? I have seen ones much cheaper, and research grade scopes starting at $300,000 , but nothing between except decades ago, when they used PDP-11/34s as the base computer.
Because, y'know, it was just flour. No harm, no foul.
My sister is glutin-intolerant, you insensitive clod!
It was 7 when I first looked. Give it time. OTOH, I doubt that an article on the first trailer will get into the 300+ levels. It was not nearly as good as the first trailer for the original Superman was (which came out 18 months before the movie, and the big news was that they got Marlon Brando to appear in it, not its subject or its "star").
So all paleontology is BS? Just checking, not necessarily disagreeing.
