Considering that her claim of being docked for damage would indicate a violation of federal law-- and she's a friggin' federal government employee-- either she's a rube, or you are. The only disciplinary deductions allowed are for safety violations.
Besides, a malfunctioning switch is not "damage", it's failure from normal wear and tear. They don't last forever. If the doors don't open or the wheels on the train have to be replaced, is that taken out of their paychecks, too?
The system has been shut down while BUTTS investigate and FART, and they're notifying BOOGERS whose information was accessed.
Make a new law, if you get hacked, you have to pay the person whos data you lost $100,000.

Indeed, although I can see why most american would fear this business model, because it sounds oh-so-much like some weird form of communism applied to automotive.

They normally huddle in trees. But the eaves and soffits of your house are much better for huddling in to stay warm, because besides being cozy and secluded, they naturally collect heat during the day. It is a very annoying process to exclude the bats without killing them once they're moved in, and once they're out you have to immediately seal every opening over 1/4 inch in diameter or they'll come back. Yes, that small.

In retrospect, this is kind of a feature, because when the display was off the face was completely dark and mysterious. It was like Darth Vader's watch.
The Qur'an instructs believers to go to war against Jews and Christians.
The Bible records the history of wars.
There's a difference between recording a violent history, and instructions to commit violent acts.
The Qur'an has no order to love your neighbor, to treat others as one would wish to be treated, or to not resist an evil man. The Qur'an's plan for peace is to obtain it by force.
Starfleet HQ is in San Fran.
So basically, it's Arlington, VA if you compare it to the USA.
Slashdot is dying. Or maybe I'm just dying. Maybe both. We're all dying.
Not until Netcraft confirms it.
There should be no jobs that don't allow for the worker to be self-sufficient.
How about minors? Do they need to be self-sufficient?
