I was re-asking questions asked in the articles.
Honestly I think the edited summary flows better, but some of the information has been removed. The original is here, which you can also find by following the links through the user's username link and then clicking on "submissions" on the top left.
How many times did you hear about US troops being injured when handling them? Or about them being disposed of by being detonated remotely without warnings to nearby villages? Or about some of them being still there, in Daiesh/ISIL areas?
Is that all old news from during the war?
That's really just the beginning of the story. Why the cover-up of US troops being injured by them? Why weren't they disposed of according to international accords on chemical weapons? Are we sure they were all destroyed before ISIL started scrounging old bases and ammo dumps?
Here's the original submission. If you read the multiple articles linked from the original or edited summaries you'll see that just finding them was far from the end of the story.
That wasn't missing in the summary as submitted, but editors will edit.
Why the cover-up, when so many people were making it a point to say there were no WMD? Was it to keep morale up? Was it out of embarrassment that many of these weapons were developed with Western help? Was it because these were older weapons not actively being produced? Maybe it's because the US troops did not follow international protocols to secure and properly dispose of the weapons.
Well, whatever the reason, it's a bad thing. If there are any of these caches under ISIL control it could be a very bad thing."
Actually tritium has a half-life of about a dozen years. This isn't plutonium we're talking about.
You're giving 100 to 1 odds? On anything? How much can you cover?
Most of the hype and publicity over gun control is the mass events, which are rare.
Guns are designed to be weapons. Water heaters are not.
The 60 or so (not 30 -- that's just form the explosions) deaths per year from a benign appliance that's in every home and workplace show that anything can go wrong.
I assure you that once you buy a water heater there are a lot fewer legal controls over what you do with it than your firearm or your car. The manufacture of commercially built water heaters is highly regulated for safety, as it is with commercially built firearms. The plumbing industry is fairly well regulated, as is any role that requires carrying a firearm as part of the job description. Still, accidents happen in both areas.
Crippling the connection or interfering with another customer's connection are probably both against your ToS. It's free Wifi. It's not really made to torrent over or to earn your whole damn living over. It's there so you can check email and surf a bit during the normal amount of time you'd be consuming the retail space's goods and services.
Yes, yes. Every little mom and pop outlet on the corner should hire someone to provide you with your free perk while you sip your $1.50 Americana the next three hours.
You forgot Ada, a child of Pascal.
Not the AC, but I'd say Ada should live on in descendants. It should be split into the eight or so complete programming languages that they bundled together when the committee made it. One or two of them might be a nice tool.
I haven't watched the presentation but I'd heard about some of this. I have a few questions to clear up.
Will the Java server handle all our Ruby custom facts?
Will it handle our ERB templates?
Will it actually be Java or like PuppetDB will it actually be Clojure?
Will it have Jetty in front of it like PuppetDB and take 30 seconds or more to restart and listen on a port vs. restarting Apache in 2 seconds with the puppetmaster Rack application behind it?
What specifically does it buy me over daemontools, upstart, or OpenInit, though? There are other things that are big improvements over sysVinit.
