I was thinking more along the lines of "decorating" my house with balloons on wires (kind of like the navy did in WWII), and if any of these flies over my house, there's a good chance it will end up "crashed" in my yard.
I thought snow was like gravel, in that you will stop faster by locking up the wheels and piling up some snow in front of them, rather than trying to stop the wheels from locking up?
Some modern ABS systems can detect snow, and will actually add in a "lock the wheels for a second" every so often just for this reason if they think they're on snow.
This gets fixed by developing a better bag. Better means comparable cost and strength, with handles and environmentally safe.
Jumping straight away to a tax makes it look like nothing more than a money grab.
Or change the way you check out. Put RFID tags on stuff so I can just bag stuff as I shop, then pop the bags on a reader and swipe my card on the way out. That would actually get me using my own bags.
My wife died of ALS, and while we weren't bankrupted (thank heavens), the stress on both of us was hell.
She had a DNR, and a no-vent order written in advance. When she was admitted for pneumonia, she was lucky that her doctor understood that it was essentially over, and ordered a morphine drip.
She was essentially out of it, and confirming the DNR/no-vent was the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life. I still haven't completely forgiven myself.
You can't forgive yourself, because there's nothing to forgive. I haven't had to go through this with a family member (thank God), but I have with my cat who had cancer. When there's nothing more than can be done, and your loved one is doomed to suffer terribly and inevitably die, keeping them alive because you don't want to lose them, or are afraid of what you'll feel like if you allow euthanasia is ultimately quite selfish. Realize that what you're doing for them is actually a great act of love - you're accepting that you'll live with the memory of what you're doing, because you're doing what's best for *them*, not what's easiest for *you.*
Sounds nice, but "return the TV' means somehow finding an appropriate shipping box, filling out the required paperwork and paying to mail it back. If you are lucky you will then eventually get another TV to unpack and set up - and then have to repeat the process.
It means throwing it in the car and taking it back to the store to demand a refund, and if I don't get it, calling the credit card company and doing a charge back.
So, how long till someone comes out with a device that sits between these things and the car, and makes everyone a perfect driver?
PGP/gpg's weakness is noticeable, but in this case, the perfect is the enemy of the good, and a WoT is the security solution that sucks the least.
Yes, it takes some time to get keys signed, but the advantage of a WoT over SSL is that you can take a couple people whom you never met, but whom your friends trusted, add up their semi-trust, and be pretty sure that an unknown key is genuine.
And how long before the NSA just gets court+gag orders that force the members of a target's web of trust to sign their bogus cert? Obviously the more people they do that to, the more likely it is the target will be notified, but I wouldn't put it past them any more.
Just finishing my last trojans and timebombs...now they can fire me.
You don't even need anyone to do that. My experience is that competent IT people can pretty easily find a new gig - and they will, now, before all the good local openings are taken. The deadwood that's left has the potential of causing just as much damage accidentally or out of ignorance as someone malicious.
the forms don't have a space for the prices. They don't care about the price.
Then it would be against the code of practice to put your premium number on such a form.
Still... if it wasn't _your_ number, then I guess you couldn't get into trouble. You wouldn't receive a cut, but the idea of them trying to sell something to the girl on the end of the "naughty nun spank hotline" might give you a smug sense of satisfaction.
So just pair up with a buddy. You put his number on forms, and he puts yours.
As the grid becomes more distributed and "islandable" it will naturally be more robust. And storage is a key enabler to make that happen.
Like maybe 50 million electric cars spread evenly throughout populated areas?
This... and everyone's body is a little different. I've always equated losing/managing weight to "hacking" your metabolism. If you pay attention to what you eat/do, and how your body responds, you can eventually learn to get it to do what you want, assuming you have the discipline to make it happen.
Cat chow, for one. Cat count as obligate carnivores. They have zero need for sugar in their diet - They can't taste it), they can't even properly metabolize it. Bad for them. They do, however, have a high need for fat and protein.
And it pisses me off every time I go shopping for cat chow that I have to pay literally twice as much to get cat food that doesn't have 15-25% added carbs in it. Cat food should not have any carbs, except what comes incidental to whatever kind of horse they use as the basic ingredient. And you think you can't go wrong buying tinned more-or-less fresh meat for fluffy? Nope. Many brands even add sugar to that.
Actually, you have to pay almost 2x as much to get decent cat food. Anything you're likely to find in a walmart, kroger, or other supermarket as far as pet food goes is pretty much like taking your kids to mcdonald's three meals a day. At least they eat ~20% less of the good stuff, so that offsets the extra cost a bit. Compare the ingredients of something like Iams cat food (which most people seem to think is "good") with something like Wellness Core (which actually is good).
Even at 2x the cost, a cat doesn't eat *that* much - skip Starbuck's 2 or 3 times a month, and you've made up the difference.
Seriously? There are already at least 2 published standards that can be used with little concern over being cracked any time soon when used properly. Theres absolutely no indication that SMIME or PGP are broken when using the proper algorithm and key sizes.
I think the point is that encryption is useless against someone that can say, "give us the key or we'll dissappear you."
... when your SSID is FBI_surveillance_van_26.
I use "PRISM_Collector" now
