As an American, I'd be fairly pissed off if the military didn't have a secret replacement for the SR-71 already in service (since before 1998).
a typical "green" person doesn't think in terms of "best alternative", but simply opposes whatever is being done since it will inevitably have some consequences.
And a typical small-minded bigot stereotypes everyone whose views aren't a clone of his own. Fuck you, small-minded bigot!
If you want to get 50 mpg, you need to find a 1980s era Honda CRX
Well, you could get a 1999-2006 Honda Insight, but then you'd have to "settle" for 70-100 MPG.
But the technology hasn't been perfected yet! (I can tell because it's almost 30 years since Back to the Future and I still can't buy any plutonium at the corner drugstore.)
Engineering professors can get paid pretty darn well... I looked up the salary of one of mine at Georgia Tech, and he apparently makes close to $200K (over, including reimbursed travel).
It's like in our hospitals - you can never convince administration that you actually WANT empty beds - because that means the population is healthy and empty beds are a sign of success of the health system.
It also means your hospital is too big, and that's what the administration is upset about.
I'd think it would violate the "ND" (non-discriminatory) part instead.
After the first month, you know exactly how long it takes to charge and how low batteries are after 51 miles.
Not necessarily. It depends not only on your driving pattern but also the ambient temperature (which obviously varies according to season unless maybe you live in the tropics).
Do you use a car everyday? I don't.
Then you're not the market for a Tesla. Not only because batteries degrade over time (whether you're using them or not, I think), but also because if you only use a car occasionally then it's stupid for you to buy an expensive car.
So just to be clear, Mr. ordinary self-interested citizen of the USA, as long as your criminal Stasi organizations and the douche politicians that enable them are only spying on the ordinary, law-abiding people outside your borders, you're good to go?
While that view might be hypocritical and selfish, it's not irrational.
you'd be pissing furious if you found out the GCHQ had recorded all of your conversations for the last few years
But not furious at GCHQ for attempting to spy on us, but rather furious at the NSA counterintelligence unit for failing to prevent GCHQ from succeeding. (And then infinitely more furious at the NSA for accepting the resulting data about US citizens in order to circumvent the 4th Amendment.)
I know some Roombas have some kind of programming API (or at least they used to). How hackable are Neatos?
The space between each pair of deck planks in a wooden ship was filled with a packing material called "oakum" and then sealed with a mixture of pitch and tar. The result, from afar, was a series of parallel lines a half-foot or so apart, running the length of the deck. Once a week, as a rule, usually on Sunday, a warship's crew was ordered to fall in at quarters - that is, each group of men into which the crew was divided would line up in formation in a given area of the deck. To insure a neat alignment of each row, the Sailors were directed to stand with their toes just touching a particular seam.
Both sides would have been stolen equally, since they would have been attached to each other.
Bo, obviously. He just can't spell.
It must be the Church of the Children of Atom equivalent of kosher/halal.
