In the UK.
A colleague got stopped for DUI on his way in to work. Yep the next morning. A very large fine and a requirement to go to school to learn how to drive! But generally you will have your license revoked.
In the UK.
Yep it would. However it is heavy and the out gassing would change where the thing is going unless it is still able to move.
Longbows could out-range muskets. Early rifles could just about match longbows for range and accuracy. However the bows could be fired far faster than any muzzle loaded gun. The downside is that arrows are expensive to make and it takes a lot (I mean a really lot) of time to train an archer. Not so much someone to fire a musket.
Strange but true.
That was what I was thinking.
Currently you have available:
a) A Phalanx Centurion C-RAM (land based version) which can possibly hit something up to 4km away but generally much closer and sprays god knows what downrange (if that is a town then
b) A short range anti-missile missile system. Something like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Dome
Far longer range up to 70km aparently. The cost is hundreds of thousands of dollars per firing and the detritus of both missiles rain down somewhere.
Both are used against fairly short range ballistic projectiles (shells, mortars, unguided missiles).
This approach has the advantage of being cheap to fire and only have the remains of the target raining down on you. And lower supply requirements.
Just to clear that up.
England, Northan Ireland and Scotland are countries. Wales is not. Wales is a Principality. The Isle of Mann and the channel Isles are I think protectorates. They are all part of the the UK. The falklands and caymans et. al are crown colonies. Jamaica, Canada, Australia, and many more (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commonwealth_realm) became part of the commonwealth. Hence they still have a queen and still have the union flag as part of thier own
Philip can never be King. Just as the queen mum could never be queen (King George VI was her hubby)
The line runs to her sons. Charlie
That may skip a generation a go to her grand kids (or Charles brother)
Perhaps because they are on parade for the queen they are not hiding a few miles off putting a shot into her head. It is a display. It is a display she can meet. Even the APC is repainted and polished.
A pretty thing but not something to mess with.
Most monitors will display somewhere between 6 and 8 bits. Not great colour.
There is enough reason to have worries about single strain crops.
Bananas crops are genetically Identical (clones) and people still remember what happened to them. Luckily there was another breed to use.
In the UK pretty much anything in front of you has right of way (excluding cats, dogs and unowned beasties). Depending on size you may wish to avoid them anyway. Cattle and horses are owned. Deer probably not. If you encounter an elephant you probably have more to worry about than who to phone to report the accident.
Does this mean that the TSA security theatre is working? Nah I doubt it.
Security doors on aircraft and better screening of passengers does work but not the half arsed invasive approach taken in the US.
Yes you do not want people on board with dangerous thingies. But there is that which is true for most people and then there is taking it to far. In a way the only serious hijacking you are likely to get now is one that is intent on crashing the aircraft.
Previously there were two main reasons; Escape (from the law or from political oppression)...fly to another country, or to achieve political goals (release these people or we start to kill the hostages)...land somewhere appropriate and start killing the passengers.
Still more than enough to be detected. I have no idea if that is relevant for this. So I must sort of agree.
It is tiny but yet it is probably the best that can be done now.
There are not that many speed cameras in the UK. And there are quite strict requirements as to when and where they can be placed (mostly related to traffic accident statistics). After the free for all there are now guidelines and regulations in place. What pisses me off is that when the camera is removed there is no obligation to remove the warning signs. Slowly the country is becoming covered with speed camera warning signs even though the cameras have not been there for many years.
The average time systems on motorways also seem to be sticking around for far longer than the roadworks they were there to protect.
(P.S. In the UK static speed cameras have to be sign posted very visibly well in advance of the camera.)
