I just can't get past the fact that it's a lie. Anyone who can look beyond that amazes me.
The government already considers George Washington to be a terrorist and does not approve of his actions. You're about 10 years too late to bring "patriots" in to change anyone's mind there.
Now if you want to convince a judge that it's wrong and dangerous, acquire a judge's metadata and have it entered into evidence. If the judge isn't okay with it, then you've won.
I think without all of the work involved in this study, the credit card statement analogy paints a picture everyone can understand easily and accurately.
GNOME, an environment library is used by an application as well. If an older version of the environment is used, one cannot upgrade the application. Does that sound like a problem to you?
If GIMP were to do it right, it would make calls THROUGH the UI afforded by the OS and environment, not directly to libraries. But that's not what's happening. GNOME says "It's GTK, speak to the GTK people" GTK says "It's GIMP, speak to them." GIMP says "GNOME develops GTK now."
Someone is doing it wrong. And the result of that is Linux GIMP under a common distro is a second-class citizen.
Every use of GTK outside of GIMP is a problem. Try running the latest CentOS with GNOME and see if you can run a newer GIMP. You can't. You will have to do all manner of things and you still will not get 100%.
I have discussed this topic with GTK, GIMP and GNOME projects and at the end of the day it comes back to GIMP/GTK developers. They say GTK is for GIMP. So every developer out there would be well advised not to use GTK any longer.
Water is one of those resources which flow and circulate. They don't get "used up" so much. It is used in its many forms, liquid, gas and solid and its transitions from one state to the other is often useful. It is temporarily held within bodies of produce and other products and in people as well. But these are molecules which circulate all over. The water molecules which are in your body right now may have previously been in a T.Rex long ago at some point.
Now, some states and conditions and situations of water aren't "usable" at the moment and it would take some time before it gets to that state. Which leads to the main issue of water conservation. That main issue is how much is available at any one time in the appropriate state and condition at the right time and in the right place. Under circumstances when resources are presently insufficient, the next question is cost and time to achieve the desired resource levels.
I guess what I'm getting at is the understanding of not "how much is used" but "the rate of how much is available minus the rate of how much is used." When you get negative numbers, it's a problem... obviously. But for people to just say "how much is used" denies people a bigger understanding.
1. I don;t know anything about the case you speak of
2. Providing a death certificate and a will is more than proof needed in this case. There was no one to be protected.
What else is new? Human interest takes a back seat to Apple's interests. I'd suggest they have no respect for the dead, but in this case, they are respecting the will of Jobs by carrying on as he would.
(yeah yeah, troll modding here I come. He was pretty famous for being a major ass.)
I agree with your additional benefits.
I'm sorry you live in Canada. I just heard the RCMPs just made more guns illegal without much in the way of due process.
All of these rules and laws go to show that people need to become more vocal and active in government if only to make their lives better. Government imposing itself on the people so their jobs are easier or their [illegal] quotas are filled more quickly is light tyranny. (Pop quiz: Did you know most states in the US at one time or another made radar detectors illegal? Only Washington DC and Virginia currently outlaw radar detectors though some states will occasionally try to ticket people for having their windows blocked with electronic devices... that's typically local rather than state. And do you know why? Because activists pointed out that radar detector users are safer drivers because they are more aware of the road and constantly looking for cops.)
Anyway, get active in your government. Freedoms and rights are being trampled everywhere. Stop it.
The only places that say "do not back in" are trying to prevent damage to their property. The cause of displaying reverse lights is nonsequitur.
I have NEVER seen or heard of laws against backing in. Cite a reference or you're making it up.
As for "rather get hit from behind than in front"? You're presuming the odds of getting hit in the front are the same as getting hit in the rear. The odds of getting hit in front are greatly reduced because, in theory, you are watching where you are going. You *DO* watch where you're going don't you?
Not true. In fact, if you cannot see the side of your car (and I only mean the very edge of the mirror space) then you are unable to accurately judge the angle of anything on that side without a basis of comparison.
1. Why not? People learn to drive in the first place.
2. It doesn't require changing mirrors at all. I drive like that all day long. I can see everything I need to see in that side-view mirror. I just don't look at the sky.
Either an old dog that can't move fast or it's BS. Dogs are rather capable to getting out of the way and backing in is typically done slowly.
I addressed that concern in my diatribe.
1. It's a skill like any other. You can learn to develop it.
2. Use the mirror-hack. Angle your passenger-side mirror so you can just see your passenger-side panel and angle it down so you can just see the cars behind you on the road. You don't need to see the roofs of their cars or even the sky for that matter. Seeing what's on the road is far more important and educational. By seeing the ground on the passenger side relative to the passenger side panels, you can accurately judge the distance on that side of your car as well as the parallel alignment. (It doesn't do much for knowing how far you can go backwards but still.)
Easier to pull in forward, but it leaves you much more vulnerable always.
And ask yourself why police, firemen, [ex-] military and others do it? Why doesn't it apply to you? I'll admit I am ex-military, but that's not why I do it. Frankly, I've just seen too much tragedy in other lives not to. Everything from scratched paint to dead children... fortunately none of it mine.
