Poison ivy is self-replicating and transmissible to another plot of land.
Don't let your car tell on you. You can mod me down now.
Fighting for mates is always one vs one, winner take all, and yes they are trying to kill their opponent.
Not true. In many animals, fights are intentionally non-lethal. Much like a fistfight, when both have knives. But if one unsheathes their claws (or whatever real weapon), then the other will too and they both run the risk of being maimed or killed. This works because the non-lethal dominance competition correlates pretty well with what would happen if they were fighting for real.
The benefits of this new system are obvious: more privacy for users, less resources needed by Apple for responding to warrants.
Ducks are notorious sex offenders. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." is true for ducks because they have evolved a maze-like vagina for just that occasion.
And now I decree that you will never think the same way again about having "all your ducks in a row".
Famine, Plague, and even War have been on the decline for years, despite what modern media coverage would have you believe. There's plenty of room for our growth, if we don't mind killing off a bit more of the remaining habitat of other species.
Maybe Nadella got tired of hearing about the year of Linux on the desktop, and decided to finally make it happen? Anyhow, good luck without your researchers. I hope it was the ones responsible for Windows 8.
Fructose is the nasty sugar, which makes high fructose corn syrup also nasty. Sucrose is only 50% fructose and 50% glucose. Glucose is the "standard universal" sugar used to make everything from starch to cellulose. And artificial sweeteners are the "weird new thing" which our bodies haven't adapted to yet.
Might I suggest a Chromebook? In this case, being partly crippled is a feature.
Clearly, anonymous reader is a masochist.
Indeed. Remote tech support for people who will regularly need it is bad enough, when they're your relatives it can be worse (and you can't bail).
3 Jihadis are building a bomb and 1 jihadi makes a booboo and blows himself up. How many jihadis do you have left?
Declare it to be an American drone strike and recruit a dozen more?
Al Quaeda has lasted for decades, and will continue for the foreseeable future. They're mostly harmless and a useful tool for keeping the population loyal and unified. ISIS is not merely using terror but have become actually dangerous. Guess what comes next?
They share tenets with conservatives (government is too big, and should be reduced in size),
That's a conservative talking point, not a conservative tenet. (at least if by "conservative" you mean "Republican" like most people do)
To clarify my point, terrorism still ranks below peanuts on lethality. It's already a drop in the bucket.
It would be far more effective at controlling the risk and threat of terror.
Why would any leader want to do that? It instills unity and patriotism, and gets people to overlook the leaders' flaws.
As usual, the headline is misleading. What's less usual is that they totally undersensationalized the news.
