I would have thought that claiming a trademark rights on "moot" would fail. A moot is a generic word for a meeting/council of Anglo-Saxon origin.
I am delighted to confirm that we have made plans to resite our Nuclear Deterrent. After much consultation and with the agreement of the Legislative Assembly, I am pleased to announce that in the event of a Referendum "yes" vote, the UK will be breaking ground on a new facility in the Falkland Islands.
This is an immensely popular decision that has the full support of all our inhabitants, stated the Chief Executive of the Legislative Assembly.
On hearing this announcement Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, President of Argentina, wept before exploding into flames.
Physics: Boldly going where no muon has gone before.
Physics: a momentous time for muons.
Physics: do muons follow Standards?
You forgot to mention that some nations don't have so much land. Palestine, Israel, Taiwan, etc. You'd be insane to promote solar if you lived in any of those countries.
Not much land is needed - everyone has a rooftop and most of the countries you've mentioned are bright and sunny
to kill them before the power plant does?
Not at all - the solution is to kill and cook them in one simple process instead of the dual process that we have currently.
Its a bit difficult to say because of the complex nature of the car business, but European sourced cars are generally better than US models due to the realisation that corners are something to be enjoyed.
In Jaguar (yes I know its owned by Tata), Rolls Royce, BMW and Mercedes we have cars that everyone aspires to own, and that's before I get into mentioning Porsche, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Bugatti etc.
On the US side, you have one car manufacturer that is widely admired - Tesla.
There was a game called Apocalypse produced by Games Workshop, also known as Warlord in a more complex form
I suspect that for n dimensions, there is a necessity for the board "size" to be n+1 for a game not to be completely trivial.
e.g. 2d = 3x3 board
3d = 4x4x4
4d = 5x5x5x5
More importantly, a lot of rules change from country to country e.g. rights of pedestrians (jaywalking in the USA), implicit rules at junctions (no permission to go right on red in Europe) etc

I am still missing my Groklaw fix which used to assiduously track and report on such cases with detailed insight.
LibreOffice is fine for most so-called power users too. I would suspect the only problems for Power users would be in areas where Libre/Open Office does things differently from MS Office.
I would possibly agree that Excel is ahead on a few issues, but the type of people affected by this would be those generating complex models within Excel
You have to accept some moderation is done by mouth breathers. I put a full technical explanation of why something would not work in a national newspaper comment and got more downvotes than almost every other comment I had submitted combined.
Only a few short years ago (well about 1000), your average Swede would have been giving their children nice shiny longswords, placing them on a boat and encouraging them to tour the world and kill people....
Instead of polluting the oceans with these huge cables, we should attach fricken lasers to sharks.
At this point you might think I am going to do another tired re run of the Dr Evil comment, but if you had the imagination that he did you would realise that by also fitting optical detectors on sharks you could have a point to point internet mesh across all sharks in the ocean. SharkNet would not have a single point of failure as like the internet is supposed to do it could find another route in the event of the loss of any shark node.
I humbly submit that Dr Evil was a visionary who was simply ahead of his time and should be canonised into the pantheon of saints alongside Saint Steve of Jobs
