And, boy, are his arms tired!
Although coming from the same root, the Nobel peace prize is a completely different group of people. A different country, even.
Think of it as a stealth mode startup seeking to disrupt the living paradigm.
As a young ham, myself and another member of our club were rebuked for what we thought was a clever workaround to a persistent jammer. We came up with a list of repeaters, assigning a number to each. When a jammer would come along, we'd simply say "meet me on number 4" and we'd QSY to that repeater to continue our QSO.
At a subsequent meeting, one of the OM officers of our club told us to knock it off as it could run afoul of the "codes & ciphers" prohibiting of part 97.
Imagine exploring organic tunnels carved by some unknown alien creature, or floating past dazzling crystalline stalactites in pristine ancient caves. Perhaps the influences of Red Faction and Minecraft could also come into play as you bored your own shortcuts through layers of destructible sediment. All of Descent's dizzying navigation challenges could be even more exciting with the immersive potential of a virtual reality headset like the Oculus Rift or the Sony Morpheus. Feeling the mine walls close in on you from all sides could get your heart racing, and turning your head to spot shortcuts, power-ups, or delicate environmental details could greatly heighten the sense of being an explorer in an uncharted land.'"
SpaceX are fantastic, world-class innovators, but lobbying the government to tilt the playing field their way smacks of rent-seeking.
You're confused. It's called levelling the playing field. What the USAF did was sign a no-bid contract with the Boeing/Lockheed to purchase Russian rocket engines. A huge no-no in the public sphere, if not illegal. The only way to get them to reverse on that was to go to court.
Returning to the days of snake oil is not the solution.
Take a look at the market in "herbal supplements & remedies". Snake oil never really left, just got a free pass as long as they slap a tiny disclaimer on the bottle or TV screen.
When Starship Troopers was performed at Rifftrax, they couldn't alter the movie in any way. To get around this, they had the cameras cut away to a silly diversion (Gorilla-grams!), while a non-offending corner of the scene played out in stage right. If you were live in the Belcourt theatre, you got to see the film in all its glory.
Forget it, he's rolling.
Your subject line is 100% on the mark: Failure is the expected & intended result.
Low test scores that result from this test make a great lever to use to privatize schools and/or get rid of teachers that can't get their kids to pass this charade. Corporate America gets to cluck their tongues at the crop of obvious dolts-in-ye-making an lobby their pet congressperson to allow ever more H1-B and offshored/temp labor to compensate.
I'd say this is working as designed.
Pft, lets see a fighter jockey parallel park a F-16.
Agree completely. I must point out (again) that the automatic appeals process costs taxpayers at least $2 million dollars, therefore life in prison/no parole is economically cheaper for taxpayers.
I fear that this would be fixed by getting rid of the appeals instead of doing away with capital punishment entirely.
Did your sense of humor go down with the boat?
Mod this up for the worlds first twerking strawman!
Er. That's the point. The accused has to prove they aren't what the accuser says they are. Proving a negative, if you must.
