Hopefully they will do like in Australia and have the till show if it rounded up or down. Mind you, knowing the government and human greed, I highly doubt it.

We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
and have you seen how much of that is chemicals? well over 90% of it. good bread should consist of four basic ingredients: flour, yeast (fresh yeast is best), salt and water.
I would rather bake on a regular basis then ingest all the crap they put into store bought bread. besides, the bread I bake at home gets eaten fast enough to not get a chance to go stale
This is where mod points would of come in handy. I agree completely. I am in my 40s and there is no way in Hel I would let a car drive me around. One of the reasons I prefer driving a manual over an automatic (dont' get me started on that flappy paddle bullshit either
Remember Ernie Ball?
This is the same Vic Toews that said that if you are against this legislation you are for child porn.
The swastika symbol pre-dates all known religion. There have been rock/cave carvings found of it. it is found in Hinduism and Bhudism as well as all across Asia and Western Europe and the Scandinavian countries (not sure about Eastern Europe).
They did modify an existing heavy lift helicopter. Though as you can see form my earlier post the K-MAX is not that standard looking to say a Jetranger or other helicopter that uses a standard main/tail rotor combination. The K-max is small compared to the usual medium or heavy lift helicopters but it can lift a crap tonne due to it's rotor configuration which is why it is used a lot in the logging, mining and oil industries
Depends on the helicopter. I do believe an A-Star landed on the top of Mount Everest though from what i remember reading it was very tough to do. The less air pressure the less lift, and as in Afghanistan the hotter the air the less air mass available to generate lift. Hell on a hot day in Vancouver, with full manifold pressure in a Bell 47 (think the helicopters you see in M*A*S*H) I was hovering 3 inches off the ground. I have taken said helicopter (built in 1956 btw) To 6500 feet ASL without any problems. Larger helicopter can, and do fly higher. There are just special procedures and considerations when flying over 10000 feet ASL and higher.
Never seen a K-Max have you: http://www.kamanaero.com/helicopters/kmax.html
It is a very narrow single seat helicopter. It can carry heavy loads due to it using two main rotors as opposed to the usual main rotor/tail rotor combination. The ones in the story just happened to be modified to run unmanned.
not sure how it works in the US but here in Canada pilots have to take a medical once a year, twice a year if over the age of 40. They also add more tests, such as hearing tests and ECGs on a more regular basis as you get older.
+1 Casablanca reference.
PayPal is also suing two former executives, Osama Bedier and Stephanie Tilenius for breach of contract, and Google for interfering with its contractual relations with employees.
Bedier headed up the company's mobile platform business and new ventures. His job was to bring PayPal's point of sale and mobile technology to retailers. He is now doing the same job for Google, which he joined in January."

I very much agree that the article is short on any good explanation. My only guess is that it plays much like the Brain Age series where the DS is held vertically. If this is the case then the player's left hand would be covering one of the screens making it hard to play the game as you cannot see much of the information passing by on that screen. i am sure that you can adjust your hand position but that would stifle your wrist flexibility causing slower response times (being a lefty for writing i can attest to that one). Thankfully the Brain Age series had a 'lefty' option where all it did was rotate the information in the windows 180 degrees. simple enough fix.
hopefully the author will give a better explanation as to why. until then all we can do is speculate.
i used to own a 1988 full sized Bronco. it had that switch AND a clutch. not sure if i ever inadvertantly hit the switch but i do remember pressing against it on occasion.
