That's an interesting thought. Aereo goes from being a self-described game-changer to a Trojan horse for other content streaming concern. I can't see entrenched cablecos being happy about that either. Maybe someone on their side has figured that out?
Indeed. In which case, the "majority of the public" is wrong.
Good point. I suppose in Pennsylvania this could be perceived as a problem, but in New York or Illinois draft eligiblity would just be the dead's civic duty, right alongside voting and jury participation.
Don't disenfranchise our patriotic dead!
Most drones, like most tactical manned aircraft, don't have intercontinental range. Any kind of overseas presence has to include ground basing.
Even aircraft with intercontinental range have trouble with responsiveness (kind of hard to react immediately to a strike call when it'll take you 20 hours to get to the operation area).
Sorry, nice idea, but as long as America takes an interest in the rest of the world, we'll have to take posession of small parts of it to enforce our interests. Kthxbuhbye.
What if looking at more clothes and stuff is interesting?
Your complaint boils down to "What's wrong with these people? They're completely unlike ME!"
Yeah, I'm not nuts about rampant consumerism, and shopping is not entertainment to me, but I acknowledge that I'm not typical.
Yes, the moment model railroading is a Constitutionally-protected right.
See? The perfect marriage of American Patriotic Capitalism and American Freedom! Bid for rights! You have every right you can afford!
but I only installed it less than two months ago, so not a particularly insightful answer.
It's our first LED bulb, so I'm hopeful it'll fare better than some of the CFLs I've used.
The editor shot his blizzwad.
World of Warcraft Mega Bloks. Hypothetically, any retailer that has a large enough toy section that Legos hasn't completely pushed out any "Lego-compatible" building brick sets. On-line too, I guess, but the few I have I actually picked up out of clearance bins at places like Target.
It's not irony. The Declaration of Independence was an illegal act. High Treason against the Crown. Every signatory was eligible to be executed, if the war had turned against the colonists.
You just take them outside immediately they begin to disturb others.
Nice trick at 40,000 feet.
They do not like this and they learn.
You've obviously made an unannounced subject transition from "baby" to "school-age child". The earliest the "take them outside because they don't like this" trick can possibly work is about 3 years old. Much younger than that, and the kid is crying for purely internal reasons, and the only thing "taking them outside" does is remove the child from the presence of other people whom their crying is disturbing. An acceptable approach, if feasible, but not a learning one. Besides, at some point choosing between "being someplace for important reasons" and "not annoying people around you" has to come down to "being someplace for important reasons", and "other people" will just have to suck it up.
Actually, if you're a REALLY dedicated terrorist, replace all the cells with explosives triggered by the power switch. Kill everyone in a 10-meter radius in the security checkpoint at the specific command of the TSA agent, and make sure the post-event propaganda plays that up.
If the lowly peon isn't held accountable for his direct actions, then the next time management asks him to do something wrong or illegal, there's one less reason for him to refuse. If he refuses, he can be assured of repercussions from management, but experience has shown him that threat of legal consequences is low if he complies; the path of least resistance is clear.
What you're advocating is that the IT puke be arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced, and punished for... working an anonymous hardware ticket in the IT task management tool. Probably one of dozens added to the system in any day.
I'm sure you're envisioning IT minion being called into Big Bad Evil Bureaucrat's office and being told "This hard drive contains crucial evidence which will destroy every Great and Evil thing I have worked for so long to accomplish. You must destroy it... use the Impractically Slow Hard Drive Destruction Machine in our Sea of Japan secret volcano base."
In practice, I'm sure it was the IP weenie going "Huh. A hardware decommisioning ticket from Remedy. A dozen hard drives."
Yeah. There's individual moral responsibility. But while we're at it, let's imprison undertakers for destroying murder evidence in cases where the murder isn't uncovered until after the burial.
