Reading the summary, I thought this would be about actual hacking... say, making the car do something awesome it couldn't do before. Maybe, like adding a special performance mode, improving its charge rate, or adding features to its entertainment system. I see it's really all about pwnage. I'll pass.
How about Microsoft/IBM screwing Gary Killdall out of DOS
Uh... he didn't create DOS. He created CP/M. You could say MS screwed DR out of a _deal_ with IBM, but it's likely he did that to himself.
You crazy anti-vaxxer! Who let Jenny McCarthy in here?
Well, they gave the Westerners syphillis, so... call it even.
If it's 97% of the world's scientists, that's just a fallacious appeal to authority as only some scientists are climate experts. Example of a false authority: Bill Nye.
No, it's in fact NOT LIBERTARIAN to allow private organizations COMPLETE CONTROL of the freedom of an individual, whether that individual is a child or not.
It's funny when leftists who claim to support open borders show themselves to be the selfish xenophobes they are.
De jure, but not de facto.
The Continental Congress ratified the text of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th (that's 4 July for the European xenophobes). There ate other important milestones in the American Revolution, but that was chosen as the formal DECLARATION of independence. Ratification by vote, not signing of a paper (which was completed by August 2nd, still not "long after the war started") determined the event. And if you're going to decide when we became de facto independent, and declaration of such and taking up arms isn't enough, then I'd say it was once Franklin persuaded the French to recognize the USA as a nation.
Apparently, 5 moderators are insufferably dull European killjoys like yourself. You'd love it if we had another World Cup poll, right? Wake up and smell the internet, loser.
I tried to put a coat and hat on my bottle rockets, and it started a fire.
You probably meant "disoriented", although I have to say a disinterested pilot would be almost as bad.
The U.S. Constitution is in the public domain. And chances are, the police haven't read it before.
I would totally just take a bag full of dead cell phones to the airport with me if I didn't think it would result in a cavity search.
Besides your scenario being foolish-- there is a significant customer base like you who the airlines would like to serve-- it's not government's place to keep you from being annoyed. Banning phone calls in-flight because it annoys people is worse than the chewing gum ban in Singapore. At least that was done because of the vandalism to the infrastructure.
