From what I understand, any corporation with government contracts is required to do employment piss tests.
Totally intrusive and probably unconstitutional but the people who own this country piss on the constitution, whatever their piss contains, because no one tests them.

This book is one of my favorites. Stephen LaBerge teaches techniques that work very well for me to become aware of dreaming.

He also teaches how to use the skill for problem solving and creativity.

One of the techniques for becoming aware is to ask yourself during the day if you are dreaming and look for dream signs, which makes you ask yourself that same question while dreaming and helps realize that you are dreaming, at which point you can do anything. I guess that is where the electric current comes in handy because you are not used to it during your waking hours so when you experience it, it makes you realize you must be asleep, which means you can be or do anything you could ever want.

One of the coolest things for me is to fly to new strange cities.

Except, this is not about the money as much as about exposing the filthy disgusting shit these people do to keep people from earning what they are worth.

And we should all wonder how that looks on the global scale. If they get away with this type of stuff in the US, image what they get away with in countries with extremely corrupt governments.

This is another ruling that is based on finding something that they think would give the victim (defendant) too much power, allowing him to skirt the law, and not based on true legality.

It re-confirms that the justices are nothing more than senile elderly people who work with and for the enforcement industry and don't really care about upholding the constitution.

It means you don't have any big data requirements so you're better off sticking with MySQL or something easier to manage at a small scale.
If growth is high or you have a lot of data to analyze, you can look into importing data into Hadoop using sqoop and query it with Hive and HBase. But you most likely won't need that for at least a couple of years.

Creationism believers already get plenty of time on Fox. Unfortunately it's always the same audience that pays any attention to it.

belief = gullible stupidity
thinking = analytic intelligence

I happen to find thought provoking shows a lot more interesting than any preaching, which I just either very funny or rage provoking.

So it's "protection" money?

Seems to me like extortion by government and uncivilized people more than tax.

Now if you said that the government has a right to the tax because the heirs earn it for practically not doing anything, then I would be on board with you.

We definitely don't want to be in a feudal state.

No one wants to punish people for victim-less crimes. We just fall prey as a society for the giant enforcement and correction industry and can no longer differentiate between what is actual crime and what is a money-making scheme.

Class extermination is the only true vice of the war on drugs. Which is why Meth has the worst reputation at the moment. Meth has brought lawlessness to predominantly white communities and turned them into drug-based ghettos. And heroin use increase in white communities is a result of controlled prescription drugs restrictions where people with real problems no longer have a safe venue to manage their pain or their addiction developed by improper administration of the pain pills turns them to the black market.

Not once I was ever prescribed pain pills was I given a plan on how to safely come off of them. Once the pain went away, it's like I hit a wall at 40 miles an hour. Fortunately I was able to handle that but a lot of people can't and they end up unable to live a safe life.
