Do you like Apples? How about them Apples?
I looked around for my E200 running rockbox (3.7.1) after reading your post. Found it in a the bottom of a drawer in my spare room. Hit the power button, it fired up with 20% battery and started playing from where it left off the last time I used it. I don't know the self discharge rate of the battery but I swear it was at least 2 years since I last touched it.
Stand on the corner with a sign that says "You can buy potent illegal drugs in this alley for cheap" and you will be arrested. Stand on that same corner with a sign that says "Bad people are selling cheap illegal drugs in this alley, stay away" and you will be fine. Seems strange, in both situations you are giving people the same factual information, that drugs are beign sold in the alley but in one you are adding some opinion to that fact. Your opinion in addition to facts should not be the difference between illegal and legal.
From my experience, the "military" or command mentality is this:
Follow my orders, questioning things is a sign of subordination, obey my guidance because I am right, just do it, and you don't have enough info to make your own decisions.
We have all worked for those people.
The one thing I have found without a doubt from every person I have met that has some or all of those characteristics is a person that is not truly comfortable with what they are doing. They are afraid of people digging in deeper into the why and how because they themselves do not know or did not think or care to ask. They do not want to be questioned because it may expose their own weaknesses. It is a mechanism they use to deflect the questions and reasons hoping you will just accept them. I've seen this from both ex military non military people with no more of one than the other. I've also found that if the person really does not know what they are doing or in over their head but is playing the part, they will EVENTUALLY be exposed at some point. It's usually not long for once a few people on both sides of that supervisor or person start really digging until they are gone.
1000HP Honda minivan. More of a novelty used as a dyno queen and for burnouts. Similar to many 1000+ HP Supras.
Why do clothes dryers and fireplaces not have a second inlet duct pulling outside air directly into the unit so you are not sucking air from the living space which is then replaced from outside air through cracks and crevices and pulled through your house somewhat defeating the purpose? I could kind of see it with a fireplace that is open because it would be difficult to get a good draw but there is no reason to not have that functionality on a clothes dryer. Maybe with the clothes dryer, it would take more heat to heat up freezing cold air from outside but at least that air is "dry" and will aid in removing moisture once heated a bit. Am I missing something?
The chain of events was
1. A cargo door not latched and dogged shut even though it appeared to be shut and its indicator indicated shut and latched.
2. Door blows off at some altitude and pressure vents off, passenger area vents slower from lack of enough vents and air pressure collapses the floor.
3. As floor is collapsing and falling into the cargo area, it breaks major hydraulic lines that are run just under the floor.
4. Pilot no has little to no control of the plane and.....
Understand, on BBC America, it has commercials and those small recaps I was referring to fall in line with what you are describing.
Is this you? Sounds like it.
Top Gear UK does small recaps after the commercial breaks. They do not actually talk and explain what you missed like you forgot from 5 minutes ago, they kind of randomly throw in some replay of quick clips of something that already aired a second time.
The costs of laying wire/fiber are expensive but in the end, the people in the area can and do eventually pay for it regardless of who did it. It doesn't matter if Verizon, Comcast, Joe's Fiber Company, or the city of Whatever did the laying of the wire, the final cost for that wiring project would be the same. The problem with the franchise agreements is the people paid but they paid it to a single company that won't share it. People could have paid a third party or the local government the same amount of money in the end to run those lines and had an "open" line and then picked a carrier for their service on that line. The Verizons and Comcasts could still negotiate and run their own lines in the same area instead of providing service on the existing "public" lines but they won't. Why? Because of the competition and choice people have and they do not see money in doing it.
Devolving talent and skills requires time. There is always new people coming in but they do not come in immediately to the higher level positions. They start lower and possibly work their way up. If your top performers are leaving soon after they reach that "top performer" level, you will have less top performers. So, you recognize their benefit to your company and provide better benefits to try to keep keep them happy or you illegally collude with your competition and peers to not offer benefits greater then you or flat out refuse to hire them away from each other at any cost. These companies chose the later method.
There goes the market for those cheap riverfront vacation properties.
There is a very good reason that some river front property is very cheap.
Using your logic, anyone that has Comcast or Verizon for their internet connection is screwed unless the place they are getting bandwidth from is also a Verizon or Comcast customer. Wow, wouldn't that be an awesome setup for Verizon and Comcast.
This is what Comcast and Verizon want.
They could belong to anyone. All that person(s) has to do if file a claim and prove ownership.
Obviously no one including Ulbright himself attempted to claim them. Therefore, no claim of ownership so it goes to auction. There is a risk involved with claiming property that was involved with illegal activity. At no point were the owners of these bitcoins ever held back or hindered from officially claiming them. If you were doing nothing illegal, there is very little reason not to claim ownership.
This is standard procedure and has been this way for decades. No different then the local police confiscating stolen car stereos and iPads. If no one claims them, they are auctioned off.
