Control freak much?
Yes, but with so many exemptions that nobody actually paid that rate. That was the rate for someone who totally didn't play by any rules. In reality, it topped out somewhere around 20% or so.

Or ANY need to internationalize. Hell, my company outright blocks all inbound packets from IP addresses outside of the ARIN blocks. We got tired of Russian and Chinese hack attacks.
I just want to have the old XP interface back. Hell, I'd pay double retail for that option. I love the internals of 7 and 8, but so hate the interface.
I know someone who's real first name is "Fantasy" and FB wouldn't let her register an account. She had to change it to "Fantasie" instead to get past it.
It's a non-starter of a proposal from a non-starter of a candidate. There is no huge push in the US to go fully metric right now.
Magnesium is very incompatible with water, and could corrode away very quickly if it got wet. Plus it is rather flammable, with water accelerating its burning. I'm not sure that I'd want a lot of this on a warship that can be expected to be hit by enemy fire. It would go up like a flare.
It didn't stop the Boston bombing, and the government knew the perpetrators, and the same with the attempted attack the other day in Texas. Too much data is just as bad, or worse, than not enough. Hindsight is always 20/20, and in almost every attack we find that the intel was there to stop it, but wasn't acted upon. So, we're just as screwed with it as without it.
Is there any work that is over 50 years old that still brings in big money? The proper solution is to charge an annual fee per work for continued protection of, say $1000/year after 50 years. I'll bet they won't want to pay that.
Actually, money doesn't matter much once a candidate hits the "saturation point" in advertising. We've seen that quite a few times where one side or the other will outspend their opponent by 7 to 1, and yet still lose. Money only matters if one candidate can hit saturation and the other can't.
I can't stand asshats who follow so closely. More than once, I've flipped over to sport mode and floored it to get some distance. Having a faster car is sometimes a great safety feature!
The issue isn't whether or not there is a shortage, but whether there is a shortage of qualified people willing to accept a low-ball salary.
Brown was hit with 4 non-fatal shots that would have stopped probably 95% of attacks, and kept coming. Remember, he was high as a kite at the time on weed and adrenaline. He didn't stop his attack until he took a round in the brain. Pistols are not really that effective at putting someone down quickly if they aren't afraid.
No amount of training would change the outcome in this case.
