And you think that has not been tried? You just insulted all the engineers working on ATMs as utterly stupid morons.

You must be new here.

Every slashdot story contains a few comments on the lines of "I may not be an expert in scientific/engineering discipline X, but as a computer science graduate, it seems obvious to me that you should just do Y and here's a link to a small PERL script to do exactly that."

There are a few people that organize their money using envelopes. They have a specific limit and envelope for each category and when they pay for things they take it out of the proper envelope. When there's no more money in that envelope, no more buying of those types of things.

So if your food envelope's empty, you starve, even if the booze and hookers one is still full up?

Crazy talk.

Look at a remote tropical island that doesn't have any of these species. They exist. And guess what... they're fine.

On that basis there's no problem with getting rid of elephants, big cats, giraffes, monkeys, parrots, polar bears, blue whales or whatever, as obviously there are places on earth where they don't live.

That doesn't stop a certain portion of people from deciding that these protections don't apply to non-citizens, and this sadly includes some judges. I'm not sure where they think that leaves anyone with a green card or a visa.

Didn't the US sign and ratify the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights? Which states in article 14 some interesting things those judges might want to read up on.

If you are good, you will be assigned all the work. If you are real good, you will get out of it.
