Yeah, want to really get them going? Oil, is a NATURAL RESOURCE.
Oh this one will drive the conspiracy nuts wild! After that scanner is finished, where does the data go? Is it deleted, is it stored, shared? Oh the possibilities with that data...
But, it ain't my money...
Climate change is just another attempt to dissolve nations, cause the industrialized ones to give money to the U.N. (useless nations) Climate change is called SEASONS for most INTELLIGENT people. The SUN controls our climate, not man, but, the "scientist" and pinheads in academia who couldn't hold a job in private industry, so they just "teach" (those than can do, those that can't, teach) only know what is in a book, and most of them are non believers in God, so they just spout their garbage.
Nope, not buying it. With the subsidies, tax breaks, under the table deals, the PART TIME that the wind blows, the amount of birds killed, the disruption to the wind patterns around or near a wind "farm", wind is NOT cheaper than coal, gas or oil.
Best meter I ever used, was back in the 70's...good ole Simpson 260. Built like a tank!
Yeah, like the FBI has NEVER done anything illegal themselves.
Come on slashdot libs, don't let me down
Looney Tunes, Bugs, Elmer Road Runner etc...THOSE were cartoons. What happened is the political correctness destroyed them. Speedy Gonzales, nope, making fun of Mexicans, Sylvester, Elmer, nope, makes fun of someone with a speech problem. Then you run into the whole "too violent" problem. Daffy walks into a shotgun blast from Elmer, the Coyote falls off a cliff, hits the ground and an Acme safe falls on him, too violent. Even the reruns the cartoon network use to show have been butchered. They show the coyote at the edge of a cliff, then on the ground a few seconds later. Oh yeah and the video games, crap on tv isn't violent? Political correctness destroyed the Saturday morning cartoon along with instant access streaming, and political correctness is destroying America and the rest of western civilization along with multiculturalism.
The "innards" are digital. Once it hits the MODEM, and goes out over the PHONE line, it's ANALOG.
I've been working on office machines, printers and the like for over 30 years. I never knew that I would have to learn so much about the inner working of the (U.S.) phone system that I have had to learn. With the break up of the phone company, VoIp, and the like, it is a PITA to figure out sometimes, why a fax cannot transmit from certain numbers, or receive from certain numbers. Fax machines are analog, and the internet, well is obviously digital. It's like mixing oil & water, and forcing it to mix! Then you have the problem of the ATA adapter, that converts the digital VoIP signal, back into an analog modem signal. For obvious reasons, network techs try to plant all equipment in a central location. Do that with an ATA box and run a (usually) unshielded phone line several hundred feet to a fax machine and you'll be lucky to even have a dial tone, not to mention enough loop current or ring voltage for the fax to even work. Then, even if they do mount the ATA box close to the fax, if it doesn't have the T.38 firmware, don't even bother turning on the V.38 modem features, or some of the MMR/jbig compression features. Sad, that even here it is, 2014, and we are still using technology that was technically patented in 1843, became somewhat usable in the 60's. Time to move on!
The Russians diverted the water. Also, some lakes dry up. Rogers Dry Lake (Edwards AFB) use to be a lake, but isn't any more.
Oh give me a break! This will play up to the idiot morons out there, brainwashed through 30 years of capitalism bad, socialism good. You have people who are IRRESPONSIBLE with money, can't/won't get a job, can't keep a job, no skills, can't afford anything (except they have money for tattoos, piercings, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, 2-3-4 children) and they want a car with a piss-poor credit score. So, they are given the opportunity to prove themselves, but, there is a clause...you don't pay, you don't drive, and they have the GALL to act surprised when they forget/stop/refuse to make the payments, THAT YOU SIGNED ON A CONTRACT, the company makes it where they cannot use the car? I have worked hard all of my life, made payments on time, sacrificed not buying "things" because of other obligations, kept credit card bills in line and paid them off and that is why my credit score is in the low 800's and I pretty much can buy any house, car or something on credit with a good rating. Once again, the morons out there who live with no regard to personal responsibility want ME to be the bad guy and once again, give THEM a break. Screw that! Life is hard, and the quicker you LEARN that, the better off everyone will be!
When you don't have bean counters & stock holders looking over your shoulder, you usually can cater to whomever you desire. I've had Dell laptops for the past 6-7 years. My latest is a Inspiron 15 7000 series and I love it.
This would be like saying South Korea has faster internet than the USA. The population of Australia is mainly around the edges of the continent. The interior of the continent is pretty sparse. Their population, compared to other countries is less also.
