On the contrary, they'll all stand up and say this is what they've trained for all those years of assuming spherical cows and frictionless surfaces.
If the surface is frictionless I doubt very much that they will be doing any standing.
Hemp, or Cannabis, has many uses: ethanol or biodisel production (and can be further refined into a gasoline replacement), clothing, paper pulp, rope, hemcrete, insulation, it provides a hypoallergenic (making it better than soy!) vegan protein source, it can treat a host of health and mental issues (morning sickness, PMS, nausea, vomiting, migraines, chronic pain, epilepsy, glaucoma, crohn's disease, colitis, diabetes, anxiety, adhd, neuropathy, insomnia, depression, Multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's, can balance appetite, and is NON-ADDICTIVE, shows promise of being able to cure certain cancers and in combination with western medicine improves effectiveness of Hep C treatment), lubricants for machinery, heating fuel, fertilizer, cattle feed. Also, overdosing is nearly impossible - you would have to ingest many pounds of it to O.D., far more than anyone can fit into their stomach, or if you want to smoke it, you'd die of asphyxiation long before you O.D.
It is also not a gateway drug: there is a greater correlation between either nicotine or alcohol use and hard drugs than there is with cannabis.
Disclaimer: I have never so much as tried pot - I cannot even though it's legal in my state because of my career. I'd like try it myself to treat migraines, but I can't.
Also, if it were legal in my mom's state I'd love to buy some make a tincture for my her to help her with her pain so she can cut down her oxy use (she is on opiates because she is in severe chronic pain and is terminal).
When I pull up to an intersection on a 40+ mph street I start a mental countdown from 4 and estimate how far I'll travel in 3 seconds and if I'll end up past the white line I just keep going, otherwise I come to a stop. If I run the red it is because the yellow is shorter than legally required.
For 45mph the yellow light has to be at least 4 to 4.5 seconds. I have seen lights as little as 2 seconds in those zones. It's all about entrapment.
Even worse is there is this one intersection in MA which is often manually driven by an officer during rush hour. One thing I could count on: every time I drove my Corvettes through there this one cop would quickly change the light green-extremelybriefyellow-red, but when I would drive my truck through there I would get a greeeeeeeen-looooongyellowlight-red. She was consistent on this and I'd see her do it to other sportscar drivers too, so I started taking to calling in to her department and asking for the shift sergeant to complain about her, explaining that every time I'd see the fraction-of-a-second yellow when driving my Corvettes through there, but a long yellow light when driving my pickup. After a few calls he said he would send someone out to investigate. Since then I never saw her on that detail again, even though prior to that I'd see her on that detail most days, for months. Her replacement ran the light fairly and reasonably.
Given the opportunity to abuse power, be it a private corp operating a camera or a police officer directing traffic with a logbook handy, that little bit of power will be abused.
Part of this backlash has to do with the (always accurate) perception that RLCs are a moneymaking scheme, pure and simple.
FTFY. If it weren't true they a) would not ever shorten the yellow light but would rather lengthen it b) they would always post warnings c) would always turn the cameras off when it is snowing out because in icy conditions it is sometimes safer to run a red than to insist on stopping when the intersection is poorly cleaned and you start fishtailing on snow-over-ice even with traction control + abs just because you fear a ticket. Red light cameras are seldom if ever safety-motivated. It all comes down to the almighty dollar.
XP will be around for a very long time, just as NT 4.x was. Hell I still have a client running DOS apps. Oh he has a Windows replacement but he much prefers the older apps. XP hasn't been phased out in a lot of small business environments because because the perceived cost/benefit isn't advantageous enough, even though the reality is a bit different (how much does DDR and DDR2 RAM cost now? Hard drive failures require format/install/hours of installing updates/reinstall apps all to end up with the same slow system). NT4 still exists in some embedded systems (heidelberg printing presses for example; why replace a $2.5million printing press that still works, except for the embedded PC that died? One of my friends stockpiled DEC alpha motherboards (AT form factor!) for his ripping workstation and the embedded controller because Heidelberg's fix is either a new-old-stock motherboard for $15K or a whole new press for $2.5m to $2.8m). Same for OS/2 - OS/2 Warp was what, a 1995 release, and it was dominant in banking workstations, ATM and other kiosk solutions until very recently.
I do not see XP dying for a long time to come.
The major problem - one of the major problems, for there are several - one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem. - Douglas Adams
The Internet "evolved" from ARPANET, which was funded and built by the US - primarily the DoD in partnership with some universities. It forked into separate military and civilian networks, and the remains of ARPANET eventually became transformed into the Internet and become more widely available. The birth of the Internet is really the introduction of TCP/IP into ARPANET, which was in 1982-1983.
So the original infrastructure and development did originate in the US but the private sector expanded it substantially as early as the mid-80s so what was ARPANET is only a very tiny portion of the Internet - if those original backbones even exist any more (I'd be very surprised if any of the original lines and routers are still functional let alone in production).
Drunks tend to yell, don't they? That sounds like a disruption which the flight attendants ought to have put a stop to, again, on a case by case basis. Some people can hold their liquor and not be a nuisance, or are at least are quiet drunks and not yell "SSHSSAY, HAVE *hiccup* I TOLDTH YOU *hiccup* HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU *hiccup*" and other typical drunk shit at a companion sitting or standing just 18" away
According to flight attendants on overseas flights, you can't hear others on their phones from a row away. I think it should be allowed with obnoxious folk who scream on their phones to be dealt with on a case-by-case basis - unless they are going to outlaw truly obnoxious noise such as screaming brats you can hear from 15 rows away, and larger annoying brats who kick your seat.
Phone calls have already been allowed for years - Skyphone anyone - and it hasn't been a problem. Just because it will now be $ConversationOnACellphone doesn't mean that it should now be banned. Don't punish everyone for the deeds of an obnoxious few, just prohibit the obnoxious few if they refuse to use their indoor voices.
Plutonium is naturally occurring. The problem is we find only trace amounts because its half life is relatively short.
"Plutonium is the heaviest primordial element by virtue of its most stable isotope, plutonium-244, whose half-life of about 80 million years is just long enough for the element to be found in trace quantities in nature."
It is a primordial element - meaning it was extant since before the Earth condensed and solidified.
Oh, you're THAT GUY!!
Change logs and proper release notes are very appreciated by administrators and end users. Disclosure of known issues is particularly valued, and it also benefits the vendor because it reduces nuisance calls to technical support. Fixed, pending and wontfix lists are especially appreciated by sysadmins, since they are the ones most immediately impacted by the change - do they install the patch and deploy it immediately, or do they live with the current build until pending issues are fixed, etc.
Plus, it instills trust. A veil of secrecy does not earn trust from your customers, nor does a vague "fixed misc. bugs and implemented misc. performance enhancements" because one is more inclined to not upgrade rather than proceed with it and possibly risk downtime.
Of course I am saying this blindly, since the submitter did not specify what sort of software this is. Is it a server app? A commercial desktop app? Or is it a game or other entertainment software which is not mission-critical, where downtime can cost thousands to tends of thousands per hour?
Unless your cat is a Savannah cat (the largest, most wild cat legal to keep as a pet in most states) eagles have nothing to worry about. Your cat is food to an eagle.
Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
