I'm certain this is absolutely pointless to say now, but most of those setups were designed so that spring pressure had to be overcome to close the lenses; that way, if the mechanism did fail, it *should* fail-safe to the open position.
My 1987 Honda Prelude had retractable headlights - technically rotating. They used a screw mechanism to raise/open lower/close - no springs. The car also had a button to manually raise the lights w/o turning them on - I used that for cleaning and to raise them in case of snow/ice conditions, so they weren't frozen closed.
But expecting to turn all the electronics OFF in a present day automobile is not the smartest of ideas.
For sure the clock would be wrong - and just flash 12:00 all damn day
You killed one person or 800'000, you did it, you're guilty of genocide.
Or, as Eddie Izzard said:
Kill one person, That’s murder; you go to prison. You kill ten people, they send you to Texas and they hit you with a brick; that’s what they do. 20 people, you go to a hospital, they look at you through a small window... forever. And over that, we can’t deal with that, you know. You kill 100,000 people we’re almost going ‘Well done! Well done. You killed 100,000 people? You must get up very early in the morning. I can’t even get down to the gym.
The list price for a one month supply (one bottle of pills) of my wife's chemotherapy medicine, Temodar, back in 2005 was $11,000 (not a typo). Through her HMO, her co-pay was $40 - with my BC/BS, it would have been 10% ($1,100). Had she live long enough, she would have needed up to 4 months of treatment.
Pro Tip: When your pharmacist says, "I really hope you have insurance," tighten up your sphincter.
4. Did I mention to just be yourself? A dick will only get a dick.
I think the site for that is called "Grinder", or were you talking about something else?
The problem here is that if you are Average Joe and try asking out Supermodels Ann, Barbara and Cheryl, you're unlikely to get a reply.
And don't judge a book by its cover. Supermodel appearance - ignoring fashion and grooming - tells almost no story, except that someone won some part of the genetic lottery. Sure attraction matters, but perhaps many people focus on the wrong things - or too specific things - and many of *those* things matter very little and/or may not last over the long term, which is a shame because all the *other* things can make for a very good relationship.
I was very lucky when I met Sue - way back in 1985 - when I was 22. She was 41 and, quite frankly, out of my league in many ways. (I'm reminded of this quote from The Librarian: Quest for the Spear:)
Nicole Noone: Hey, let's stop for a moment, and consider. I'm way out of your league. Way out. If your league were to explode, I wouldn't hear the sound for another three days. So for everybody's sake, let's just enjoy a companionable silence.
Okay, perhaps we weren't *that* far apart, anyway... She was very attractive (see photo at bottom of: http://remembersue.tumblr.com/ ), and also smart, funny and educated with a BA/MA in English and many hours over that. For whatever reason, I was ultimately what she wanted/needed and we were very happily together for 20 years until she died in January 2006. Sue will be a tough act to follow, if/when I ever start dating again. (and I don't know if I have the right to be so lucky twice, when many aren't that lucky once)
Just my $0.02.
many of us have a serious issue with the portion of this country that consumes far more from the fed then it pays in taxes.
To be clear, that's only federal income taxes. They still pay state/local taxes, SSI/Medicare and sales taxes. In addition, that 47% includes SSI/Medicare disabled, retirees. From The 47%: Who They Are, Where They Live... (with graphs and charts):
Who They Are:
In 2011, 47% of Americans paid no federal income taxes. Within that group, two-thirds still pay payroll taxes. The rest are almost all either (a) old and retired folks collecting Social Security or (b) households earning less than $20,000. Overall, four out of five households not owing federal income tax earn less than $30,000, according to the Tax Policy Center.
There are some not-so-poor outliers, like the 7,000 millionaires who paid no federal income taxes in 2011. But for the most part, when you hear "The 47%" you should think "old retired folks and poor working families."
Where They Live
The ten states with the highest share of "non-payers" are in the states colored red. Most are in southern (and Republican) states. Meanwhile, the 13 states with the smallest share of "non-payers" are in blue. Most are northeastern (and Democratic) states.
Why the Meme Matters
The 47% aren't lucky ducks cheating the system. They're mostly poor working families getting pilloried by the political party that wrote the rules they're following. If the 47% are the monster here, then Republicans helped play the role of Dr. Frankenstein. "Non-payers" have grown in the last 30 years because of marginal tax rate cuts and credits like the EITC passed under Republican presidents and continued by both parties in Congress.
Yeah, how's that intuitive choice of a savior working out there? Truth hurts, eh?
Um... what? Other than Romney being a rich, old, self-entitled, uncaring Republican white guy, I don't know what you mean.
Most misquoted line of the election. The whole thing makes the Democrats look worse than the Republicans.
Misquoted as in quoted directly from the video?
America's system can't ever work, and never really will except for the rich. Everybody else is expendable and 'surplus population'.
Well... 47% of us anyway, if recent memory serves...
- Area: Infinite.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy offers this definition of the word "infinite".
Infinite: Bigger than the biggest thing ever and then some. Much bigger than that in fact, really amazingly immense, a totally stunning size, real "wow, that's big," time. Infinity is just so big that, by comparison, bigness itself looks really titchy. Gigantic multiplied by colossal multiplied by staggeringly huge is the sort of concept we're trying to get across here.
- Imports: None.
It is impossible to import things into an infinite area, there being no outside to import things in from.
- Exports: None.
- Population: None
It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there most be a finite number of inhabited worlds. And finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any person you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.
- Monetary Units: None
In fact there are three freely convertible currencies in the Galaxy, but none of them count. The Altarian Dollar has recently collapsed, the Flainian Pobble Bead is only exchangeable for other Flainian Pobble Beads, and the Triganic Pu has its own very special problems. It exchange rate of eight Ningis to one Pu is simple enough, but since Ningi is a triangular rubber coin six thousand eight hundred miles along each side, no one has ever collected enough to own one Pu. Nigis are not negotiable currency, because Galactibanks refuse to deal in fiddling small change. From this basic premise it is very simple to prove that the Galactibanks are also the product of a deranged imagination.
- Art: None
The Function of art is to hold the mirror up to nature, and there simply isn't a mirror big enough- see point one.
- Sex: None.
Well, in fact there is an awful lot in this, largely because of the total lack of money, trade, banks, art or anything else that might keep all the nonexistent people of the Universe occupied. However, it is not worth embarking on a long discussion of it now because it really is terribly complicated. For further information see Guide chapters seven, nine, ten, eleven, fourteen, seventeen, nineteen, twenty-one to eighty-four inclusive, and in fact most of the rest of the Guide
Sometimes being able to buy stuff without being fucking tracked is not only perfectly reasonable, it's a damn good idea.
I think you are taking GP's humor a little too seriously...
You can never tell what will set people off these days, even on
