Just a nit - the monarch of Canada is, in fact, the Queen of Canada, who just happens to *also* be the Queen of England. Multiple jobs, same person. It's a subtle but important distinction. Canada no longer is 'ruled' by England, and in fact the article you linked to makes that important distinction.

One can sell your vote, but there is no way for the *buyer* to validate his purchase with show-up-at-the-polls voting.
You can sell your vote and vote anyway you like. The whole *point* of anonymous, in person voting is to prevent coercion.
In contrast to online voting, where your boss says "Login and let me do the voting, or you're fired.".
In the case of a *recount*, hand filled ballots can be (and usually are) hand counted.
Hand filled ballots can be *audited* against the machine totals.
But who cares? Unless you have an entity in that country that they can issue a court order to, they can blather all they want.
The US isn't invading the EU and seizing servers. It's compelling a *US* company to turn over data it has control over. It doesn't matter where the data is.
That the breaks for multi-nationals - if you don't want to deal with conflicting laws, then GTFO one of the jurisdictions. Otherwise, suck it up and accept that you will have legal liability somewhere, and it's just the cost of doing business.
Well, *everything*. The US isn't forcing anyone in the EU to do anything - they are forcing a US company to do something, which incidentally involves data stored in the EU.
If a US company has a subsidiary in Iran, then *of course* that is under the jurisdiction of the Iranian courts, and can be compelled to release any and all data they have access to. The obvious solution is to make sure the subsidiaries don not have access to data that you don't want the foreign Gvt to have.
The so-called "fighting words' doctrine has essentially been repudiated by the Supreme court, without being explicitly overruled.
For-real-and-for-true, the cases involved are now called "The motherfucker trilogy". Seriously.
Certain copper based IUDs also act on the embryo, and can be used 'after the fact'.
Certain copper based UIDs can (and are, but rarely) used after the fact. All the benefits of 'Plan B", but with useful long term effects as well.
Since terminal velocity is a function of air resistance, but the air in the elevator is always moving as fast as the occupant, there's actually no upper limit on the speed of the elevator. It would have to accelerate the entire way.
IE 11 (at least) works properly, right out of the box:

Those mirrors are not flat - wide angle.
Depth perception works just fine on flat mirrors.
The firm said it found the bitcoins — worth around $116m (£70m) — in an old digital wallet from 2011.
That brings the total number of bitcoins the firm lost down to 650,000 from 850,000.
MtGox, formerly the world's largest bitcoin exchange, filed for bankruptcy in February, after it said it lost thousands of bitcoins to hackers."

Too expensive. The meters are held in a bonded warehouse, so nobody at Sparkfun can actually get at them. Even if you can find someone bonded to do the work for you, the labour costs would be prohibitive - on the order of $150/hour/person.
Also, daily storage costs are eating up the value of the shipment - it's possible that by the time replacement cases arrived, even the storage costs make this a loser.
