The $20 part is so you can pay $900 for the $600 phone over the two years.
$20 * 12 months * 2 years = $480
Am I missing something?
From Wikipedia, Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people, in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an incorrect or deviant decision-making outcome. So, the fact that a group of people can result in deviant outcomes that would not result from the individuals alone seems to indicate that a "group" (or company) can be evil (or more evil) while the individuals may not be (or be less evil).
The anti-gay factions were the ones who got the Fed into it. They passed DOMA which specifically said that the federal government would not recognize gay marriage which was legal in the state. If the Fed were staying out of it, they would have recognized any marriage which the state recognized (this is how it traditionally worked - the states defined marriage).
Top tier gas has a higher octane rating (Premium is usually 93, Mid-grade is usually 91, Regular is 89), which means that it requires higher temperatures and pressures to spontaneously combust (spontaneous combustion is bad for engines and results in the "knock" sound). While you might be correct that the gas does not actually have any more octane in it (ethanol increases the octane rating), you are wrong in saying that octane has nothing to do with top tier gas.
Also, as a sidenote, refineries do not actually produce midgrade gasoline. Midgrade is just a mixture of premium and regular gasoline.
High octane-rated fuel does not spontaneously combust (or actually requires higher temperatures and pressures to spontaneously combust). Spontaneous combustion means all the fuel (essentially) ignites at once, which causes the "knock" sound. Instead, you want the fuel to ignite sequentially. How this happens in a gasoline engine is that the spark from the spark plug ignites some fuel and the flame front travels out from that point throughout the cylinder. So, while it is true that you do want slower combustion, the higher octane rated fuel does not actually burn slower than lower octane rated fuel. You are just trying to prevent the fuel from burning real quickly (spontaneous combustion).
Except most people will charge at night when it is *not* during peak load.
I would just like to point out that the only thing that the IRS did was to take a long time and ask a lot of questions. 501(c)4 organisations can self-designate themselves, so they can go ahead and act like they are a 501(c)4 until the IRS actually denies them. And if they are denied, they would just have to pay back taxes and declare their donors. But, the election is over now, so if they were denied now no one cares anymore who donated to who.
And, if their consciences were clear and their motives were pure, then they wouldn't need to worry about eventually being denied because they wouldn't be. The problem is that most of them were planning on, and did, spend money on politics. I think the whole lot of them should be put in jail (my tax money subsidized their politicking), instead of being lauded on Faux News as "victims". This whole "scandal" is just political manipulation by the Republicans (who do you know of any political affiliation who doesn't like to hate on the IRS) and all of the sheeple like you are falling for it. The real problem is that during this time period the number of 501(c)4 applications doubled (and that doesn't even count the organizations who self-designated) while the IRS budget and workforce was cut.
So, basically, the Republicans have this political philosophy of "starve the beast" (keep government responsibilities the same but cut its budget) but scream when the lack of funds results in government being less effective (at least to their constituents - they are fine when it just affects poor people). And they want to try to project it as some grand conspiracy instead of recognizing it as some overworked government employees trying to be more efficient (god forbid the government actually try to be efficient - then Repubs couldn't get up on their soapbox and preach about how much better the private sector is).
3^3 = 27 which is a factor of 27
6^3 = 216 = 27 * 8 (or 3^3 * 2^3) so is a factor of 27
3^5 = 243 = 27 * 9 (or 3^3 * 3^2) so is a factor of 27
Either you are completely wrong or I have complete forgotten how to do math.
