You mean that great thing that requires you to walk through the rain for ten minutes, then is 2 minutes early so you miss it and have to wait 30 minutes for the next one? That wondrous device that requires a driver that goes on strike several times a year, leaving you without options? That doesn't ride when you really need to get to your crashed server at 3am? And that never goes from A to B in straight line but takes 1:06 from my home to my work, while I can drive in 20 minutes myself.

No thanks.

Actually we have solved that problem. It's called S/MIME and getting your keys from a Certificate Authority such as VeriSign.

VeriSign... Under the direct control of the NSA. Or any other CA in the ca-bundle.crt, such as DigiNotar - iranian govt had direct or indirect access to those certificates. Or what about türktrüst, a CA under control of another totalitarian regime.

S/MIME is only secure when the dozens of CAs can be fully trusted. And they've shown they can't.

Why not 6km/10km? I'm not sure, but I guess it's because the village where she was found is only 500meters long and surrounded by meadows. 5km radius = 10km diameter. This means all nearby villages are included as well.
Any further is a lot less likely: most crimes are commited within a certain distance of the criminals home. Because the infrastructure at the site doesn't allow to travel very fast, this distance decreases I think.

The Marianne Vaatstra case will probably never be solved. There was a lot of evidence pointing towards a center of asylum seekers nearby. The most likely suspects fled the country within a few days.

Gas will hit $10/gal and the problem will take care of itself.

In The Netherlands we are paying € 1,871 per liter = € 7.08 = $ 8.89 with the current exchange rates. Nevertheless, the number of cars on the roads has only increased in the past few decades.

The only effect it that i absolutely hate to drive my fscking car that takes up to a minute to get from 0 to 100kmh/62mph, and that I have less money to spend on things I actually like. But I'm definitely not driving any less, because if I don't go to work, I don't get paid.

System checkpoint complete.

Working...
