AK Marc wrote, "Skype was never P2P
Wikipedia tells us:
Skype uses a proprietary Internet telephony (VoIP) network called the Skype protocol. The protocol has not been made publicly available by Skype and official applications using the protocol are closed-source. Part of the Skype technology relies on the Global Index P2P protocol belonging to the Joltid Ltd. corporation. The main difference between Skype and standard VoIP clients is that Skype operates on a peer-to-peer model (originally based on the Kazaa software), rather than the more usual clientâ"server model (note that the very popular SIP model of VoIP is also peer-to-peer, but implementation generally requires registration with a server, as does Skype).

From the LA times about earthquake insurance
Rethinking Your Stance on Earthquake Coverage
Californians have a well-deserved reputation for being in denial. We build our homes on flood plains, on brushy mountainsides, in the path of mudslides and on or near earthquake faults. Most of the time, most of us avoid catastrophe. But we should acknowledge that someday our luck could run out--and consider whether it's worth taking precautions to protect against the unthinkable.
Do you have a reference for this?
All the bird related large aircraft (includes jet fighters) bird related crashes have been the result of flying into a flock of birds -- enough to clog the engine intake and cause the engine(s) to flame out.

UAVs (sometimes called "drones") shouldn't be operating around airports but the likelihood of one downing a transport category aircraft is just about zero.
That's sort of like saying you can't measure the area of a room using a tape measure
That's exactly like saying you can't measure the area of a room using a tape measure. And it's true, as you acknowledge.
Why do you object to writing with clarity and precision? Why do you resort to insults?
Sensors can monitor only weather. They can monitor neither climate nor change. Both must be calculated from series of data points.
Of course it would be difficult to get a $433 million grant to monitor weather.
