The thing is, in the provided picture, the dress actually IS white and gold, or at least grey and gold
I'm sorry, but it is definitely not. I just opened it up in GIMP, and the blue areas have hue values between 225 and 230. While yes, the saturation is low (30-40), that definitely still makes it blue, albeit a washed out blue.
Load it up in an editor and snip pieces of it out if you don't believe me, look at them on their own, compare them to color swatches
I did. It's definitely blue. Not highly saturated blue, but blue nonetheless. It's certainly not white/grey.
The best solution to union meddling concerning the split shifts is to employ half of the drivers in the morning and the other half in the evening.
This has to be one of the dumbest things I have ever read.
Tell me genius, how are you going to drive the same amount of buses with half the employees on a shift? Or are you under the impression that people can drive two buses at once?
It makes much more sense to give first time offenders for stupid crimes like this a year of probation, a significant amount of community service, and forced enrollment in some sort of vocational school / work program.
You don't reform people by making them sit on their asses for four years talking to other criminals. You reform them by putting them to useful work.
Your "typing in a program from a magazine" analogy is completely flawed since two people typing in a program from a magazine will produce identical code. Two singers singing the same song will obviously not produce identical performances.
The Constitution is there to GRANT the federal govt very limited, enumerated rights.
This is not really true. The Bill of Rights is a list of things that the government specifically cannot do. It would not be necessary if the Constitution didn't grant the federal government some pretty broad powers (such as the power to make and enforce laws).
Anything that gov't purports it wants to provide 'for free' to the poor ends up being unaffordable by the majority because government money and regulations create monopolies and push prices up by making end clients price insensitive and promotes the idea of entitlement not based on productivity.
Ahh yes, such as roads, water, power, gas, fire departments, police, primary education, &c...
