... with the originals. The prequels were shit which is why people had a hard time getting a job.
That statement makes almost no sense. Of the actors from the original series, how many went on to become well know actors? Basically you have Harrison Ford and James Earl Jones.
Given that the cast was relatively unknown to being with how many well known actors do you expect?
If anything it's an indication that if you throw a dozen reasonable actors into a major movie then one of them will turn out to be star.
Sure, but there are a few differences. For one, a manned plane will have at least one person (the pilot) with a serious interest in it not being one of those that crashes and kills people. Even if his employer is willing to risk it, he has the final say and it's his ass on the line.
The little hobbyist craft are small and light weight, There is a serious limit to the amount of damage they might cause. Not so much for a 50 pound commercial drone.
Yes, it is always unreasonable because it happens without the owner being found guilty in a court of law. In fact, it happens without any sort of due process.

Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said the authorities were investigating whether the power outage was due to a technical failure or cyber-attack. "It is too early to say now if it is because of a technical reason, a manipulation, a faultplay, an operational mistake, or a cyber (attack). We are looking into it... We cannot say they are excluded possibilities.""

The Games division is net -300-400M over the last 12 years, up significantly since Q4 2012 where they were net -3B and the XBox One's losses are significantly smaller than the previous two generations at the same point in the cycle despite the recent price cuts. I'm not sure how much knowledge sharing there's been between the gaming division and the Azure division, but if the MS marketing is anywhere near the truth then it's likely that at least some of that groups significant profitability was gained through experience in the gaming division (kind of like how GE can lose money on the generating part of a power plant but make money on the financing or vice versa depending on how they want to structure the deal).
MS has a vbery long history of stabbing 'partners' in the back.
It is a complicated technology
Bicoin is a distributed double-entry bookkeeping ledger where transactions need to be signed by the crediting account's (secret) key. And Bitcoin is also the (imaginary) currency unit used in said ledger.
Seriously, there's nothing there anyone who knows even the basics of accounting wouldn't recognize. It's just wrapped in a high-tech packaging.
No true Scotsman?
There you go, making sense again.
"These snooty scientists, what do they know?"
I was raised in a very poor family, one of the poorest in our city, but I have an IQ that's very high, and I always made good grades in school. I don't see the relationship between poverty and smaller brains, nor do I see the relationship between poverty and crime. Of course I was raised in a good family that wasn't trash.
"I'm very smart. I lifted myself up by my bootlaces. Anyone who doesn't is trash. Crime is done by criminals for for the evulz, and is thus not affected by economic circumstances."
Parental involvement makes more of a difference, and unmarried teens are simply not the best parents. Ask any teacher and they can tell you which students have parents who care.
"Teens having sex is bad. Children doing badly at schools is caused by parents not caring rather than working two full-time jobs to make ends meet."
Congratulations, I think you hit almost all popular right-wing talking points. All that's missing is some scaremongering about immigrants. Maybe you could work that into the bit about crime?
open fire if you fail to immediately comply with their orders
That sounds like murder to me.
Failing to comply with the orders of someone is not grounds for shooting them.
If Tim Cook is so bloody interested in equality, he can give to the poor everything he is paid.
Well, he _has_ said he'll give his fortune to charity. Does that count?
The US was founded on justice, equality before the law . All other forms of equality forced by law are a swindle; they are injustice.
I suspect you agree with Tim Cook on this. The issue is that the law is trying to supercede equality and prevent it.
