I think by the time they are switched to autonomous, the operators are safe in assuming that no airliners are in the area as airlines generally try to avoid active war zones.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
The constitution's ban on a standing army was not so much to prevent it being used as an aggressor against other countries as it was to prevent it being an aggressor against US citizens.
Well... can do X sometimes even when X is nearly universally understood to not be the intended result has been used as a war cry to ban lots of things, guns in general being the most obvious example. M855 in the US is another very recent example.
Oh yes, we can always just run away and let the bully have everything they want. Or, we can stand up for ourselves which requires an escalation.
I'll rephrase... Winning always requires an escalation. Losing just requires submission to bullies.
Somewhat incorrect, there pardner...
Big-game hunting rounds are nearly all, if not all, expanding rounds; that is, the projectile breaks apart or mushrooms open to create a larger wound path that will do more damage to vital organs. The purpose of this is to have a better chance at a quick death from massive blood loss instead of a slow death. It is considered a more humane way to kill large game.
Militaries are not allowed to use expanding ammunition mainly because it is more likely to cause a quick death.
Nope, the expectation of proportionality is pure, unadulterated bullshit. Once violence is initiated, the original victim has the legal right (in all civilized countries) to defend oneself by stopping the threat violence. That always requires an escalation.
Oh yes, the old "you failed because you didn't account for your product to be used in ways it was never intended to be used" reasoning. Many a good company has been bankrupted because juries have been convinced that your statement is actually logical.
Yeah because a movie where everybody dies with absolutely no drama is going to be very entertaining. Perhaps you should stick to the Hallmark channel; at least there you won't have any actual real-world experience or knowledge by which to judge the "realness" and you can then be entertained.
Or SNL's Bag o' glass.
Cause he isn't an egghead.
No, no, no!!! It is so that every movement of the pan can be tracked and all temperatures tracked just in case an employee or customer sues the restaurant. At least, that is what the lawyers and insurers will say.
because the Geneva Convention only governs militaries in declared wars between countries. It does not cover police forces dealing with citizens/subjects inside countries.
I'll agree that it is acceptable for police to have and use in limited circumstances but very limited circumstances and even then they should have no problem obtaining a warrant.
Well, if it could actually produce the type of image you are imagining it produces (but according to the summary does not produce) then your voyeurism would be illegal in most jurisdictions.
Yes, yes you are. See my reply to ganjadude for an explanation of why.
