Hey, everyone, the government says that what it's doing is OK. At least we got that settled and we can all stop worrying about it.
while their methods were "close to the line of constitutional reasonableness," they were used for good reason
Hey, I think I heard of a road that you can pave with those good intentions.
Anything found in the course of a legal search is fair game for prosecution.
So if they enter your house with a warrant to search for drugs and find that body you've been keeping in the freezer, you're hosed.
Does anyone remember that, at one time, the big promise of technology and automation was that we would be able to reduce the workweek for Joe Workerbee?
Somewhere along the way the goal of tech has become to employ as few people as possible, preferably with lower skills so you don't have to pay them as much.
I predict that they will handle it the same way they handle airport security: Everyone is now on the no-fly list. You can apply to get a travel pass that will allow you to fly within a given window of time. You'll have to show the pass along with your passport to enter the terminal. Eventually, leaving your state or county will also require a pass.
I've been expecting this within the next ten years or so.
I'm getting ready to file a petition against the Minnesota Vikings. It's obviously disparaging my ancestors.
Uber needs to simply sit back and do nothing about it. The less said the better.
Actually, Uber took advantage of it by offering discounts in the cities affected. I'm pretty sure Uber gained many new customers today.
And heaven help those kids if they had a copy of "GURPS Cyberpunk" sitting on a bookshelf.
They'd never see the light of day again.
It depends. Did they send him a Facebook invitation?
It used to take around 25 button pushes to turn closed captions on or off on U-verse. I'd like to know how they came up with their usage scenarios when designing this that interface.
Thankfully, they've added a shortcut that reduces it to around six button pushes, but still... Why does it only take one button on my DVD player?
You piqued my curiosity.
Apparently, depending on the author, the falling tone at the end of a sentence is called a "terminal fall" (sounds like a coroner's statement of cause of death), "falling terminal" (sounds like a terrorist act), or a "terminal contour". I'm couldn't find a official universal term for it.
I thought the Wikipedia article might have something in the article on intonation, but I was unable to find it.
I recall this actually happening to someone, except it was the phone company that was sending him the bill.
After making multiple attempts to get it cleared up, and starting to receive threatening letters regarding his phone service, he mailed in a check for $0.00.
The problem was cleared up immediately.
My dad got out of the navy after WWII. Several years later he was informed that an audit had revealed that he had been underpaid, and they sent him a check. The check was for twelve cents.
My mom still has that check.
That, and the batter should be allowed to carry the bat with him as he runs and use it as needed.
I'd become an instant fan of baseball.
What are these "sports" they're talking about? Are those done in that rumored land called "outside" that I hear about every so often?
