Considering there is evidence that the goverment has done it before I somewhat believe is pausible. The USA goverment infected black people with syphilis Then later on they moved their operation south and infected Guatemalans and you may find many more here

Operation Whitecoat it was called. If you were a Conscientious Objector you did this instead of shooting people. There's lots and lots of conspiracies out there. All a conspiracy means is that two or more people get together to do something. Banking is rife with them. So is the software industry (and the hardware, anyone remember when flat panels suddenly got cheap? Conspiracy among vendors to keep prices high...). Yes, there are crack pots out there. But that doesn't mean organized groups of people aren't doing bad things...

Now the batteries on the other hand.... Batteries don't hold charge very well in the cold. It's been one of the two big problems for electric cars since the 19th century.

The charge still is in the battery, and it does not just magically disapear. Batteries release of power is a chemical reactions, and that reacction happens to slow down as it gets colder. But the power does not magically just vanish.

The problem I have with the Leaf is that my 25 mile commute would be way too much for it in the winter where I often get stuck in 2 hour traffic jams at temps from 32 to 0F, if my employer had a charge station it might be enough to risk it but draining 70+% of the battery just for locomotion during ideal temp days doesn't leave enough safety margin for cold weather performance plus heater usage.

The electric charge in a battery does not magically just vanishes with the cold. The power still is there and it will come back as the batteries heat up from ussage. Batteries release of power is a chemical reaction, and chemical reactions happen much slower when cold. So as you initially start using the batterie the electronics will give you a false reding of how much power there is left in the batteries, but as the batteries warm up from ussage you will see that all the capacity still is there.

my three monitors are working well, get video hardware/drivers that are well supported by mac osx and there are no issue.

Yeah there is no issue viewing multiple monitors in MacOS, the Problem is working with them. The menus is what makes using multiple monitor in mac very anoying. I have not used it in a long time since I got rid of macos, maybe it has been fixed. I had 4 monitors and I had to put many miles all the time to get to the menus of the application I was using, because the menu only displays in the main monitor.

primates tend to be in bands and they all protect each other. Mogamy happen because it takes a long time to rise the offspring, and it needs the support of both the female and male, and Love was one of the reward mechanism. See Helen Fisher's talk

why would they research some other animals when there are plenty of humans available to do direct research on. I am sure lots of people would volunteer. Does this even need to be researched? Human are not monogamous, they do like to pair up and that is probably to raise the offspring

Instead of taking the 405, he should continue south until he reaches Palisades park. And he should be pulling a Jetski or a motorized kayak. Jump into the ocean, and come out at Dockweiler beach state park. Have another car waiting for him there, and then take Imperial hwy which converts into 105.

Easy, Your aquientaces didn't do any research is their fault. There is this one form called Adjustment of status that you can use to stay in USA when you marry a citizen. If that does not work legally divorce and have the person leave the country and apply for a fiance visa Then you can marry and do the adjustment again. To bring a family member, friend or whoever as a visitor a citizen resident you need to fill out an affidavit of support I have even brought people from cuba this way to come and visit me. Bringing Cuban visitors is good, they are legally allowed to bring cigars and rum. I am not a lawyer but all the information is in the goverment site and all it requires is some reading.
