Why modded down? I was responding to the "buy a car just for commuting" bit!
Hey, now that the systemd nutters have broken Linux we can go back to calling Unix Unix instead of *nix.
I don't think the problem is the roots damaging the wire. As another posted, unlike a wall the wire can move.
How do you get the wire under all the roots? You have to cut the roots. Then the trees get sick and/or die.
Often people do landscaping or other work involving digging and cut roots. they think it's ok because the tree seems fine. It can take even up to a couple of years some time for the damage to become visible. And then the tree dies.
With most electric cars I could drive to work but wouldn't have enough charge to get home
I could try to charge while I work but maybe my employer wouldn't appreciate paying for that!
If the democrats actually picked Biden I might even consider voting Republican.
chickens are pretty good at producing fertilizer
Even if the silo completely contained the blast and all fallout (unlikely) doing this would be a HUGE statement. If someone could cause the warheads to go off in the silo what else can they do? Can they launch the missiles? Can they target them? What if they took sides, they could destroy all of one side's warheads giving the other side complete power.
This would definitely get someone's attention.
I've lived in a neighborhood where there were many women that made more babies with more fathers specifically to get more benefits. I have no doubt that eliminating welfare WOULD decrease the birthrate.
However... I agree, people aren't going to just stop making babies just because the money tap is turned off. There may be fewer but there would still be many. Those children would suffer greatly and it's not their fault their parents made bad decisions.
So... that's how the real world works liberal and conservative kiddies. There are NO easy answers and your ideologies are all bullshit!
No one has been punished and they are still spying on us all. Where's the backlash? People complaining on Slashdot?
forget the terraforming, just cool Venus by a few degrees and take notes as you do.
It gives people who don't bathe often enough the heebie-jeebies.
Better to try Venus. Don't expect terraforming, just see if you can cool it a bit.
Yeah, cool mars more... good one!
Actually wouldn't that prove humans can have a POSITIVE effect? To prove a deliterious one they would have to fail, and fail catostrophically.
Sure, just redesign the Euro to be shiny paper and print enough of it to cover about a hemisphere or so.
